Going to call Ruffles tomorrow but my father-in-law is eating plain Ruffles potato chips and he showed me that they say gluten free. I was wondering if anyone has had them since they were deemed to be gluten free and tolerate them just fine? Would be nice to have something I use to eat from time to time.
Ruffles Say Gluten Free?

This is what i found:
Please note however, some of the products listed below may be manufactured on the same lines as products that contain gluten. Although our lines are cleaned between production runs, Frito-Lay has not tested these products for gluten content and the ingredients in these products may have come into contact with gluten-containing products prior to manufacturing. Individuals who are sensitive to gluten should take these factors into consideration in consuming these products.

This is what i found:
But that is for the second group of " no gluten ingredient" products. The ones they label gluten-free, including the Ruffles, say:
"Some people suffer from an intolerance to foods containing gluten, which is a type of protein found in wheat, rye and barley. Frito-Lay has validated through analytical testing that the following products contain less than 20 ppm of gluten.
Please note: The information provided pertains only to products distributed in the U.S. Products sold in other countries under similar brands may be made using slightly different recipes and ingredients to accommodate local needs and preferences."
The gluten-free ones are tested with a 20 ppm or less test. That does not mean they have 19 ppm. They could have none. I eat Ruffles and Fritos and Santitos and Tostitos and have never had any issues except my hips and thighs.

The disclaimer Shadow quoted refers to the second list ("listed below") of products which do not contain any intentionally added gluten, but for which no assurance is offered. There are 18 Ruffles varieties in the second list. So check carefully, but if it says "gluten-free" on the package I would not be concerned at all.

Seraphim, I think I recall you saying you have a problem with corn? Ruffles are cooked in corn oil. I use to love them, and the regular Lay's. They were my chip of choice because you hardly ever find a burnt one in the bag. But alas, my corn intolerance forced me to give them up.
gluten-free since June, 2011
It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!
Life is good!

Because the gluten free and no gluten ingredient Frito Lay products are all run on the same lines and the difference is on that some are tested, some aren't, I eat whichever ones I want. I'm quite confident that they adhere to the same manufacturing processes no matter what they are running. I have never gotten sick from a Frito Lay product no matter if I am eating one marked gluten free, meaning it is tested, or if I am simply eating one without gluten ingredients. Mind, I don't eat junk particularly often.
