Does anyone know if banana chips are typically gluten free?

Our cafeteria at work always has a bunch of candy, trail mix, banana chips, etc. by the register and I always consider getting them but don't know if they're safe.

I could probably ask the brand and to see the ingredients but figured I'd see if anyone here eats them.

I've ate dried mango, apricots, apples, and pineapples and I've been fine. But havent ate the banana chips. Probably is though, but you might want to double check.

I went grocery shopping yesterday and saw banana chips out with the fresh peanut butter. That just sounds sooo yummy to me!! I didn't get any because I didn't know if the banana chips were safe though.

Good question!!

i think they probably are its just the where and how they are packaged whick makes them a bit dodgy. i was eating them but would get bloated tummy afterwards, then i looked at the packageing and it read, " made and packaged in a factory where gluten and wheat products are manufactured and packaged" or some silly stuff like that. love nana chips, i miss them. :ph34r:

We sell them in our store and I have eaten them before because there was nothing with gluten listed on the label and did not have any tummy troubles BUT, I keep a daily diet journal and noticed that whenever I would eat them within a day or two my knees would really hurt. I do not know if one has anything to do with the other but it really seemed ironic to me.

Most of them are not just bananas, they are sweetened, so I guess you'd have to know what's in them and it probably varies from company to company.

I eat them like popcorn! I bought a tub of them when I was less paranoid about cross contamination and I guess I got lucky. The brand is "Homa" and they come in a plastic tub. Have never had a reaction to them and I am extremely sensitive (lucky me :D ).

Like Carla said: pretty much bananas and sugar. Yummy!
