Tortilla Chips

We tasted the blue and yellow tortilla chips. Both were excellent; good corn flavor and just the right amount of salt. No one crunching happily away would know that the extra zingy taste comes from Salba. Each 1-ounce serving has 400mg of omega-3, 140 calories, 6g total fat, 75mg sodium, 19g total carbohydrate, 2g protein.


Available in both sticks and twists, the flavor of Salba comes through a bit more in the pretzels. We demolished the whole bag. Each 1-ounce serving has 210mg of omega-3, 110 calories, 1.5g total fat, 330mg sodium, 21g total carbohydrate, 2g protein.

Blue Tortilla ChipsWe’ve got the blues—and love them.


The tasty salsa errs only in that it’s a bit on the thin side (see photo on Page 1). We’d ask the company to rethink that going forward (and while they’re at it, a spiffier label design—the current one looks “old-fashioned health food store”). The salsa is made in Mild, Medium and hot, but the Mild is very mild. People who enjoy most mild salsas should start with the Medium. Each two-tablespoon serving has 160mg of omega-3, 12 calories, 0g total fat, 126mg sodium, 2g total carbohydrate, 0g protein.

Enjoy Salba Smart smart snacking.
