Oooooooooh, I was so hungry this morning at school. I just needed a little snacky snack. I would've sworn on my life that Doritos are gluten-free. Just the regular ol' cheese ones. So I got a bag from the vending machine- one of those little tiny ones. As I was finishing it up, I turned the bag over out of habit. The problem was that I turned the bag over AFTER I'd eaten them.

Apparently there is wheat in the cheese flavoring. :blink:

An hour later I was trying my damndest to telepathically will my teacher to stop talking so I could go home to my bathroom where I belonged.

Three hours later, I was feeling okay. Not too bad. And it started to become reasonable to think that it really IS all in my head. Hey, great!

Four hours later...well I've been running between the couch and the bathroom for a few hours now. :(

The lesson is that when the company tells you to always check the product ingredients...well, you should probably always do just that.

The worst part is that the last three days I've been doing really well. I haven't had any blatantly noticable gut pain like I normally do. Only mild cramping/bloating/gas. No D for a few weeks, even! Oh! And I my first celiac support group meeting is tonite. What an ironic reason to miss it. (I was so excited, too...)
I am such a moron.

Courtney - 25
Columbia, SC

Gluten-free since July 8, 2006
Casein-free since October 16, 2006
Went six weeks, and fell back into a deliciously painful world of cheese.
Casein-free (again and for serious this time) December 11, 2006
Stupid cheese addiction....2/07

Dx Hypothyroid in 1993
Dx Gluten & Casein Sensitive through Enterolab 10/06
Dx Adrenal *Exhaustion* 2/07




Originally from WI, I am still in denial over my newfound casein intolerance. I fear I will not be allowed back into the state if I can no longer eat cheese and drink milk. This could pose some trouble over holidays when I wish to visit my family. It also poses a problem involving the severe rage I feel when I have to throw away somebody's unfinished cheese sticks. That is so wrong.

Hi Courtney,

You're not a moron--you're human like the rest of us. We've all made mistakes, and we learn from them!

At least the worst of it waited until you got home... :) Hope it passes quickly!

This happens to all of us at one time or another. I hope you start feeling better soon. I used to get so frustrated when I just wanted a snack but wasn't sure what was safe or just nothing around that I could eat. Now I try to always keep a baggie with nuts, dried fruit, and gluten free pretzels and chocolate chips with me. It helps keep me happy when others have their little poison filled goodies or I can't get home to my nice safe gluten-free kitchen.

Most of the cheese flavoured Doritos are gluteny. Nacho cheese and spicy (nacho) cheese or whatever being two of them. HOWEVER...for those cheese loving Dorito folks, the Doritos Zesty Cheese is gluten-free according to the CANADIAN list from Frito-Lay dated May 5/06.

Also, if you can find them (and I can't anymore) Superstore's PC Rebellos Spicy Nacho are gluten-free. They are a Doritos knockoff. I can only find some other kind of PC cheesy flavoured Rebellos that DO contain gluten.

Please note that the Zesty Cheese Doritos are gluten-free on the Canadian list. I have NO idea if they are gluten-free in the states, but it's worth a call to Frito-Lay.

Oh Courtney, you are so not a moron. I've been ranting to the coworkers about the cheese-flavored Doritos for months (?) now. Who'd a thunk it? I'll bet you won't forget next time. Hope you're feeling better soon!

Dear cluecke,
You are not stupid. It was an honest mistake any of us could have made. I am extremely paranoid about it, but it is better to be safe than sorry. It is certainly not in your head! You need to do anything you can to prevent poisoning yourself. I have already planned some things for when I go out so I do not have to worry constantly about being hungry. I get low blood sugar, so I always need to have something with me! The Gluten-Free Market has some great stuff you can take with you. The bars are $1.99 a peice, and according to Amanda's Mommy's blog, a few Genisoy bars are gluten-free. Go find it on the blogs. She has a list. :)
Sincerely,
NoGluGirl
