French Fries, Hold The Potatoes

posted on August 22, 2003

French fries ... sans potatoes?

A professional writer living in Manhattan claims to have invented fries low in carbohydrates. She uses pureed cauliflower, egg whites and calcium caseinate (which is derived from milk) and just enough potato to make it "potato-y". The mixture of dough is then shaped and baked into the popular potato fry form.

The new fries have six to eight grams of carbohydrates a serving. Regular potato fries have more than 20 carbs per serving.
