PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi said on Fox Business Channel’s American Icon program that “Doritos are not bad for you.” She added that they are “nothing more than corn mashed up, fried up in oil, and flavored in the most delectable way.”

Of course, one bag of Doritos clocks in at 1,350 calories, with 162 grams of carbs. That doesn’t sound very healthy to me.

Take Part reports:

“Nooyi informs the interviewer that everything is okay in moderation. Which is, in moderate doses, true. But it doesn’t take a nutritionist to see that Doritos are, indeed, delectably flavored in a way that could cause a body a lot of harm.”
