A crisp that looks like a cracker and tastes like a peanut was revealed recently at the University of Georgia. Yao-wen Huang, a food researcher at the University​ , has called his new snack invention the peanut chip. The chip starts with what is basically peanut waste, the pellets that are a byproduct of peanut-oil extraction. Full of protein but minus 80 per cent of thefat, they typically are mixed with other food waste and fed to livestock. The pellets are ground into a fine powder and combined with soybean flour and full-fat peanut flour to boost the flavour. The mixture is made into a dough, which is flattened, cut into squares and baked to make chips. Source: Associated Press
