Chips to Go - A Factsheet

We consume up to a quarter of our calories out of home in the UK. Chips are the most commonly consumed takeaway item in Scotland.

We visited 30 outlets offering chips to take away in Glasgow during the last two weeks of May 2018 in order to determine portion size and the calorie and total fat content of each portion. We compared these with typical chips servings from the Food Standards Agency’s Food Portion Sizes booklet (2002). Read our factsheet to find out more.
