We need a whole chip cupboard at my place. What would I do without Kettle Chips.

 

I've never had a problem with Tostitos' plain ol corn chips here in Canadaland either. I don't buy them because of GMO corn (on principle, not health issues), but if they're at a party or something I'll have a few.

 

It could definitely be something acidic in the salsa instead, especially if you're still early in your healing. Try either eating the chips on their own, or having salsa on something else instead.

Possibly it could be a corn problem, but it's probably too early to say that. Corn can be hard to digest too, if your gut is still healing.

I can't have those darn things in the house. Absolutely zero self-control with those. Seriously, what IS IT with potato chips??


If its kettle cooked, I'll even ignore the stomachache! There's something about that crunch...

Here's  another  take on these...  Could  you  be  reacting  to  Corn?   Many  people  are  having  problems  with  corn  products..  ANd  yes,  even  the  nightshade  family   such  as  tomatoes>>>>>>and  ten  it  could  be  just  the  spicy  salsa  spices  that  don't  agree  with you...  Remember  we  do  have  sensitive  tummies!  I  used  to be  able  to  eat  ghost  peppers  &  hot hot  stuff  but  no more....

And typically my acute symptoms from a glutening (severe GI distress) only last a day (other symptoms may last longer), but this has been three days long.  Good to know others don't get sick from them.  I'll have to look into what else could be causing it.

 

I am really surprised no one has mentioned this, but especially if you are not having your typical onset of symptoms, it is possible you just caught some kind of bug and it has nothing to do with gluten or what you ate.  Of course, it could be another intolerance or just something in the salsa disagreeing with your tummy, if you want to look into that more, the previously recommended food journaling is a great tool for that.

Or, perhaps I'm just more sensitive to gluten than the 20ppm required for the gluten-free label.  (Frito-Lay does say they follow the 20ppm rule for their gluten-free chips, to which Tostitos belongs.)  I'm still figuring out my sensitivity level.  I got diagnosed with celiac disease by blood test after being on a somewhat diligent gluten-free diet for three years, so apparently my body just really hates gluten.  I'll have to try to stick to certified gluten-free chips.

Wow, that is pretty amazing to actually get DX'ed after 3 years gluten free. It makes me almost wonder if I should take a celiac antibody test. I have been gluten free for over 4 years, but made a number of rookie mistakes before I cracked down on the CC issues.

I'll paint a picture for you; it's 11 PM, I'm craving something salty, something crunchy and I know there are potatoes in my fridge. I needed a quick fix, and I found it. Marvel in the glory that is the microwaved potato chip (and you don't have to buy that silly contraption).

I have a recipe for you...

Takes a little trial and error to figure out whats best for your microwave but it's worth it and for people who have issues with frying/oil, well, it doesn't use any. They don't stay crisp for a long time but I'm seriously considering making a bunch and tossing them in my dehydrator.

I've done the kale chips and roasted chickpeas, and they are good, yes....but if I'm going to have potato chips, I'm not making them too. 

 

I eat Cape Cod chips if I have a hankering.

 

But thanks for the link!! :)

Cape cod are the exact ones that make me lose my mind. They have the perfect saltiness.
