Humble sweet potato brag

When is a potato not a potato? When it’s a sweet potato — a naturally sweet root vegetable packed with flavour.

Taste bud treat

Edgell, a pioneer in the field, sources its A-grade sweet potatoes from the fields of Bundaberg in Northern Queensland – a region renowned for its fertile soil. These premium quality sweet potatoes are then packed in Tasmania, where they undergo a transformation. Edgell’s signature seasoning is added to complement the natural sweetness and earthy flavours of the sweet potatoes, resulting in a chip that strikes the perfect balance between delicious and convenient.

But the innovation doesn’t stop at taste. Edgell’s 10mm sweet potato chips stay crunchy for longer. They lead the industry with an unprecedented hold time for sweet potato chips of up to 20 minutes. Retaining their soft, fluffy interior and vibrant orange colour makes them incredibly appealing to the eye as well as the stomach.

Using these vibrant potatoes to create Sweet Potato Chips provides diners with a great alternative to the classic potato chip and another option for those looking to switch up their snack options.

Crafted with Chefs in Mind

Edgell Sweet Potato Chips are also a practical choice for professional kitchens. They boast a quick cooking time and an exceptional yield, thanks to their optimal size and special coating. Being Halal certified and designed to have low impact on oil quality, these chips offer a versatile and inclusive option for chefs looking to expand their menu with a second chip choice that caters to a wide range of dietary preferences.

Whether for a casual dining setting or a more sophisticated culinary experience, these chips bring a touch of innovation and a vibrant glow to the table.

Sweet options

One of the most exciting aspects of sweet potato chips is the endless flavour possibilities. Sweet potatoes naturally lend themselves to both sweet and savoury profiles, so you can experiment with a range of seasonings to suit your taste buds. Why not experiment with these sweet potato desserts:

Cinnamon and Sugar: Transform your sweet potato chips into an after-dinner treat by dusting them with cinnamon and a touch of sugar or honey.

Maple and Pecan: Drizzle your chips with a bit of maple syrup and sprinkle with chopped pecans for a decadent, yet healthy snack.

Coconut and Sea Salt: Toss your chips in shredded coconut and a pinch of sea salt for a tropical twist.
