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.

    • When it's that high, it almost always means Celiac.  Sure, you can have Crohns, too.  Just like you can have Celiac and diabetes, the common cold or a hang nail.  I wouldn't jump to Chrohns.  I don't think the tTg really has anything to do with Chrohns?  Where did you see that?  Sometimes, a slightly elevate tTg can be elevated from other issues, but >100 is not a " slightly elevated" reading
    • Hi! I'm new here, and I'm looking for some information because I'm having a hard time finding it.  Over Labor Day weekend I got some kind of intestinal bug. I didn't think much of it until the D persisted once a day up til now. I tried a priobiotic but that didn't help much. I have bad anxiety and began to think that I was just anxious and stressed. No fever, no pain, all bloodwork is normal, so no infection or anemia. My mother has 5 siblings and 3 have celiac. One other one had a high result on a blood test but was never officially diagnosed and insists she doesn't have it. So I went to my local health fair and got the ttg-iga test, just in case. My result came back at >100. So I have called and scheduled a visit with a GI for next week. Aside from the recent intestinal issues I have never thought that I had any signs of celiac. I do have dermatographism and have had that since I was 20 (I am 28). I have severe anxiety. I had PUPPPS when I was pregnant with my daughter and it was miserable. It looks much like the skin rashes that celiacs have. Again, didn't think much of it. Because of my anxiety I am terrified that this high blood test is from something else, like crohn's. I don't have diabetes, my liver and thyroid numbers are fine. I think it's much more plausible that this is celiac because of my family history. But my anxiety says "what if it's crohns?" Does anyone have any insight? Is it true that the ttg iga can be elevated from crohns and not celiac? Is >100 pretty definitive of celiac? I didn't know if crohns was the cause if the number would be this high.  I'm just freaked out. 
    • This does say it is for NCGS....so not  for Celiacs.  There is a drug being developed that may actually break down the gluten in the stomach before it hits the intestines.  However, that is still in clinical trials.
    • could be from your neck, or it is, literally, in your head. perhaps a scan is needed.
    • The anxiety thing is there I take teas, and supplements along with CBD oil to help with it, and long walks and exercise when I get antsy. As for the human interaction it is a mix of other mental issues, and the way I feel about people who can eat gluten. If they are not eating I have no issue talking with people. I mentioned I have issues accepting them as the same species when I see them eating. My reaction to gluten is so ingrained in me that it is not a food but a poison, that watching others eat it causes a subconscious reaction where I find myself avoiding them and looking down on them like something from another planet. I end up disgusted with them and walking away, I will go out of my way to avoid people and places where foods like this are present. This is my TRAUMA part of the gluten exposure, and one of the big things I am trying to address in my life right now. I know it is irrational to do so but I end up doing it, I have never cared about others race, religion, or looks, but if I see them eating a gluten/poison, it somehow changes how I perceive them and interact with them and I hate this part about me. It is taking a lot of mental effort to try to smile and treat them as a human, and not something to be looked down upon in disgust. I just recall that mental state that gluten puts me in with my mind and body turning against me and not doing what I will it and the fear comes back. This diet is pretty much like mine, I take Doctors best Magnesium powder in a tea that is actually brewed with st johns wort (never thought much of it) , I use Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with the Neurologic Support they have, twice-three times a day for B vitamins(along with a bunch of other supplements) . I can not digest meats or carbs well, meats it is a issue with breaking them down same with egg yolks, I literally just burp up the undigested meats hours later. I have found the only way to eat them is to boil/slow cook them til they melt then blend them into a broth and have it with digestive enzymes so only do it with turkey bacon, longhorn, and salmon in small amounts in soups or for flavoring stock for stir frys.  As for Carbs like rice and potatoes I end up getting really gassy and bloated, same with sugars in any amount greater then like the size of my thumb give or take. Oats I only have gluten-free Harvest in about a tbsp amount when tasting recipes of stuff I sell at farmers markets. So I eat mostly fats and protein from egg whites, nuts, seeds, veggies, and vegan protein powders blends balanced for complete proteins. I have at least 1-2 dried fig, dates, handful of banana chips, or a 1/4 of a small fruit with meals for fruits.  My meals are mostly egg white and veggie omelettes, stir frys, and soups, Always with lots of fats and proteins in each meal. I have found having nutritional yeast to help with my mood and energy levels also and find someway of having it in meals often. I keep my foods on rotation and keep getting updated feed back on ratios with my dietician. I also have a rather odd list of foods I can not eat due to allergies/intolerance.
