Are there any negatives to eating green potato chips?

Man, some guy at work had a big ol' bag of these ghetto "always save" type of plain chips... and I swear 1/3 of the bag must have consisted of discolored chips.

Someone pointed out that eating green chips was unhealthy - and he should throw those bad chips away. I guess "a green chip" refers to a potato chip that does not have any purposeful or intentional coloring to be green. So, green Doritos or Spinach chips don't count.

Anyway, I can't find anything online to verify this potential myth. Snopes.com has nothing on the subject. Does anyone have any scientific data to prove (or disprove) the statement that a green potato chip is less healthy than a normal gold/yellow colored chip?

I found this article - but after reading it, I was like WTF

It's friday - I don't want to read these bastard technical documents.

Hmm, I guess the green stuff in a chip indicates the chip is contaminated with solanine. It seems enough solanine can cause diarrhea, fatigue, or allergy symptoms.

Hmmm... guess I should be leaving work now.

Actually, green potato chips simply mean that potato had a high ammount of sugar in it. Nothing to worry about.
