    How many potatoes are used to make a bag of Golden Flake Potato chips?
    Normally you will yield about 22 to 25 pounds of potato chips from one hundred pounds of potatoes. Since potatoes are about 75% moisture this amount is lost during the cooking process. Golden Flake uses over 100,000,000 pounds of potatoes each year.
    So for a 10oz bag of chips, you would need 40-45oz of potatoes.

    So, how much does the average potato weigh?
