I would like to know which one to avoid? For example all Idaho potatoes only or all white potatoes? If I look at a grocery store, I should avoid any mash, chips, carton, can, and frozen potatoes?
This has nothing to do with sweet potatoes? Can I get potatoes that arent from Idaho from a grocery store?

Look for organic potatoes. They're safer. If you can't find any, smaller potatoes are maybe better. The bigger ones probably have Auxigro on them. Frozen ones have sulfites on them. Canned and chips-you never know how they were grown. Not sure about sweet potatoes, but I only eat organic varieties. Hopefully our organic produce will continue to be safe if Annette and Jack Samuels succeed in Washington.

Are they going to spray Auxigro on organic potatoes too?

Shirley--We've had good luck with Lay's "Classic" potato chips, as long as we don't eat too many at once. My son tolerates them very well and I don't suffer any adverse reactions.

I dont think I can have a few so I wont take a risk. I am a food addict. I did eat a stick a butter a day, I am down to 3/4 of a stick. I hope when time goes on my addictions will go away.

I contacted Jays potato chips and their potatoes are not from Idaho. I do ok on unsalted Jays and if I want salt I add my own when I do splurge and have chips. I make my own dip using real sour cream made only with cream. This is a treat for me.

great idea! How does one know if the salt doesnt have flowing agents?

Shirley, if you use salt at home that you know is safe, you probably won't react to the small amount of any flowing agent in the chips that have salt. Just be sure the salt you use in your cooking is safe and that you don't eat too much commercially salted foods. Once in a while doesn't seem to hurt me, but then, I don't eat too many.
