There are many different types of low-carb chips, many of which are sold at health food stores or made at home with simple ingredients. Common chips that are low in carbohydrates are often low in digestible carbohydrates, typically because they are quite high in fiber. Soy flour, flaxseed and millet are common ingredients in low-carbohydrate chips, as they are high-fiber, high-protein and low-carbohydrate foods. Homemade cheese crisps and kale chips are also common chips consumed by low-carbohydrate dieters who are interested in both boosting nutrient intake and decreasing processed food consumption.

Low-carb chips are often made with grain-free ingredients, like flaxseed or soy flour, and often contain high levels of protein and fiber. Popular low-carb chips are often made with whole or ground flaxseed and combined with other nuts and seeds, then baked until crisp and chip like. Cheese crisps are also popular amongst some low-carb dieters, as these chips are made entirely out of processed cheese, which is both high in protein and very low in carbohydrates. Sometimes, a low-carb chip may include a small amount of grain, such as millet, quinoa and buckwheat, to promote a chip-like texture.

Soy flour is a common ingredient in inexpensive low-carb chips, and is often made into crackers and tortilla style chips. Although soy can be highly allergenic for some people, it is a recommended ingredient for its protein content. Often a low-carb chip will contain a blend of high-fiber, low-carbohydrate ingredients to bring down the digestible carbohydrates in low-carb chips. If a chip contains a low level of digestible carbohydrates, then it often translates into a lower rise in blood sugar. Digestible carbohydrates are the total carbohydrates minus the fiber content, and low-carb dieters usually only count these toward their carbohydrate intake.

Kale chips are popular among low-carb dieters, and these bite sized chips contain fewer calories and carbohydrates than typical baked or fried potato or corn chips. Low-carb chips like kale chips are made by tossing kale leaves with oil and salt and then baking in a warm oven until the leaves are crisp. Often, a recipe for kale chips might call for a seasoning or low-carb sauce to make flavored low-carb chips. Some health food stores carry kale chips for individuals seeking healthier options to potato chips or corn chips, yet most of the time kale chips are made at home due to their perishability.
