Bonus Trivia

Why do you sometimes see green tint on potato chips?

The green is chlorophyl that was produced when a portion of the potato grew aboveground and was exposed to sunlight. This exposure also caused the production of another substance called solanine, which can be toxic. I’ll bet that will make you think twice about eating Ruffles, huh?
