After an exhaustive search I have finally gotten reliable documentation on how much olestra is in chips. For those of you who want to know, one ounce of chips contains 8.33 grams of olestra. And it looks like the GI trouble (i.e. cosmic pizza grease) starts for most people after consuming somewhere in the range of 20-30 grams (2.4-3.8 ounces of chips) of olestra per day. So, if your interested in an olestra detox, chow down on 48 olestra-containing potato chips and don’t stray far from the head.
