There have been alternate stances on Olean throughout the years, some still say it's dangerous, others, harmless...

This poll asks all of our 3fatchicks buddies

Do you feel OLEAN is safe?:devil:

I voted in the Devil camp :lol:

Anything that can result in terrible diarrhea and prevent absorption of vitamins, and the beneficial components in fruits and vegetables, is a no-no food additive in MY book...

Criminy! Scary stuff! Even its chemical name, sucrose polyester, gives me goosebumps.

I'm not so sure it's safe - but I do know that you only eat a lot of it once...:o

I'll never eat a whole bag of Ruffles Light again.

I voted that I like it - I don't eat that many chips anymore - but I'd rather eat light ones than regular ones.

I try not to eat foods that have a warning label about "possible loose stools". It's just a general rule I live by!

I'd go for baked chips, or some other alternative instead of anything with Olean in it.

I like it. I've never had any problems. Also, anything that makes potato chips fat free and only 75 calories is great in my book! ;)

Yeah, any time the term "anal leakage" comes into play, I'm gonna stay away from it. :lol3:

Honestly, though, I've never had it. But my hubby says it's of the devil.

HA HA I love all your responses, they are GREAT, I feel your pain on the whole "stool" thing and personally I feel a lil weird when I eat them, I switch between them and baked lays to take with my lunches.....

My goal is to eat as many whole foods as possible. I avoid processed foods and chemicals. I wouldn't eat products with Olean.

I have had chips made with Olean before and didn't have a problem. I think as long as you limit your intake (I only have the single-serving bags), then it's not that bad. Not like "sugar alcohols" in sugar-free candies--those had me running to the bathroom for HOURS :devil:

I only had a single serving bag and it killed me~I will never eat that stuff again!

I seriously went out and bought some sugar free candy to help stuff along about a week after having my third daughter. :lol:

Blech! I don't touch it. Some guy ate those chips a few years ago and sued because he had "anal leakage" for weeks afterwards. By the way, "Anal Leakage" would be a good band name. Just kidding!!!!

I only eat the single serving bags, and usually only about once every two months or so when I get Subway or Quiznos and I've not had a problem. I don't eat chips very often, though. Nor do I eat the sugar free chocolates.
