Potato & Tortilla Chips

This multipart study uses a TA-8 ¼” Ball probe to puncture regular potato chips, “ripple” potato chips, and tortilla chips. Peak force is calculated for all samples and despite the relatively high coefficient of variance the tests were able to statistically differentiate the different brands tested in each category.
