What causes a white tongue?

Hi, I woke up this morning with a white tongue which i never usually have. I felt weird as i looked closely the skin is peeling off it from the outside inwards, which is making it tender. The only thing i can think of is that i had sucked on salt & vinegar rice crisps two days ago. Could this be the cause??

Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern looking to the given history I would like to say you that if you do not have any associated clinical condition then no need to worry about this because without the ill health white tongue could be considered as normal at least hemoglobin can be tested, hope this information helps you have a nice day.
