Ruffles Say Gluten Free?
0

9 posts in this topic

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. :)

This is what i found:

 

http://www.fritolay.com/your-health/us-products-not-containing-gluten-ingredients.html

 

 

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.

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.

There are two lists at the link Shadow provided. The first one is the gluten-free list, and it includes 4 Ruffles products, including Ruffles Original.

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.

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.

Thanks everyone :) I will double check with them tomorrow :) Sounds like they should be ok though. My hubby especially will be thankful if he can have them from time to time :)

 

bartfull..nope..worried about salicylates but can eat from the high category multiple times a day. I haven't tried corn products in about a year now :)

On the other hand, I got sick whenever I ate plain Lays or Fritos, so I crossed all Frito-Lay products off my list. This was 9 years ago, and they might have improved cross-contamination control, but I'm still going to avoid them. Sorry if this is a duplicate - my computer is acting strangely.

I've never had a problem with Lays or Ruffles.  In fact, I was eating Ruffles last night with no problems.

    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Welcome, @iwillmoveamountain! Of course you are not wrong to pursue getting testing for celiac. My advice is to drop that doctor and find a new one, preferably one who is celiac savvy, and who will listen to you and test you for the disease.  
    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Hi! I was hoping some of you might be able to tell me if my symptoms seem like good reason to be tested for celiac disease... I actually asked my doctor to test me (years ago) and she told me she would not test me because the test is expensive... However, I am now desperate to figure out how to manage my health issues and am willing to find a doctor that WILL test me if my symptoms seem to point to celiac...Here they are:
      I have been diagnosed with all of the following over the last 12 years (I am 22 years old, and have always been a healthy weight/slightly underweight, and quite active):
      Irritable Bowel Syndrome Fibromyalgia Anorexia (started when I was 10, I have been mostly recovered since I was 14) Depression Anxiety Panic Attacks Horrible mood swings (from suicidal to totally fine in a matter of minutes)
        Chronic constipation and bloating Acne   HOWEVER, no one in my family has been diagnosed with celiac....am I wrong to think I have it??
    • Weird Reaction
      Yes, I was surprised about the MSG in broccoli as well. I just had a quick look now as I couldn't remember where I had read it but some mushrooms have it to. A Google search will bring up a few things. I always just thought MSG was an artificial food enhancer!! Insecticides are still a big possibility though. Why do you not want to try organic? We buy organic when we can and fruits and veges that are in season are usually the best and cheapest.  Thank you for the link, Cristiana. Very helpful. I have an appointment with my Naturopath in a couple of weeks and going to have a blood test done before that. She is excellent. Very knowledgeable and loves her work. Until then I'm not taking any supplements. I generally eat pretty well anyway so we'll see what she says. In the past I have used B12 injections (aka Neo Cytamen) which I found much better and safer than taken orally and very cheap. The energy boost was very noticeable. I didn't know it helped with anxiety though. She has also had me on Magnesium, Probiotics and Vitamin D3 and I also make my own Liver Tonic (Milk Thistle, Dandelion Root Powder, L-Glutamine, Taurine and Choline Bitartrate) which I use from time to time for a quick detox. Too much of anything can be bad but I think iron can be not real good in large amounts. Deficiencies can be related to gut health and/or competing for absorbtion with something else you may be taking I found. I'm no expert though but just a few things I've picked up during research. My normal GP told me to just eat some more red meat but I want to speak to my Naturopath first before supplementing. Her knowledge on nutrition is a bit more up-to-date.  I was just sitting there at lunch today after feeling great all morning and had a "weird feeling" come over me. Just a not quite right feeling. Very hard to describe and nausea seems to have returned to. It's funny that as I get older any little thing I get I seem to think it's life threatening even though all the tests I get back say I'm in good health. I guess that's part of that dread and doom and gloom feeling I mentioned earlier. Wish that would go away.  
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      There are great gluten-free pizza crusts out there, as well as good dairy free cheese. I find the key is to add good toppings, e.g. meats, carmelized onions, other veggies, white anchovies. Life goes on. Congrats. Hope the good feelings keep up. 
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      Just want to update incase anyone can find this helpful. I have stopped eating grains and dairy and everyday I'm feeling more and more like myself. It's amazing and I don't really care that I won't eat a regular pizza again. I mean 4 months ago I would have said I would die without gluteny soft pizza, now I am happy to never eat it again if it means I will never have to suffer a panic attack.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
