Dried Veggies... good or bad?

My local grocery store carries dried veggie chips as a store brand (Publix.) Ingredients seem pretty benign (Squash, Carrots, Taro, Green Beans, salt.) Beyond the oil, any issues with dried veggies?

only that most of those vegies are all starchy/sugary vegetables and the oil is probably some type of processed vegetable oil. I'd rate those about the same as any other "chip"

Drying seems to cause the most nutrient loss, according to http://www.nutritiondata.com/topics/processing and the USDA Table of Nutrient Retention Factors found on that page.
