One snack food that’s a big hit among many is Doritos. Whether you opt to go with the Nacho cheese variety or choose one of their newer flavors such as Cool Ranch, there’s no denying that this is a food that many people crave.

Before you dive into a bag yourself, let’s take a look at the nutritional facts that you should know.

Major Nutrients Found In Doritos

Unfortunately, as Doritos are fried like any other chip, they are going to be very high in total fat content. While the brand does have some baked varieties out there, most people won’t select these but instead opt for the higher fat version.

Doritos also pack in a decent dose of sodium as well, so that’s yet another thing that you must pay attention to.

On the plus side one serving will provide 4 grams of protein, which is more than some other chip varieties may offer you.

All in all though this food is too high in fat and calories to be considered ‘healthy’ so better off left on the shelf.

Storing/Selecting

When selecting and storing your Doritos you’ll want to check the best before date on the bag and then keep stored in the bag until you plan to consume them. Left out in open air they will go stale very quickly so be sure to eat them soon upon opening.
