Two years ago Cheetos did have wheat in their ingredients. They have since changed the formula and I now eat them with no problem.

Old lists may say they are not safe and if the ingredients say wheat avoid. I can't imagine that old packages are still around but it is possible.

I've been gluten free for about 4 years now. They have been safe the whole time I have been gluten-free.

Cheetos are not gluten free. They just are made with no gluten ingredients. The natural cheetos are completely gluten free. I react to Crunchy Cheetos, but I don't to natural Cheetos

What makes you think that Cheeetos are not gluten free? If they do not have gluten ingredients, that would make them gluten free. :D

And please bear in mind, that you have responded to a thread that is over six years old. Product information changes.

I know that this is old, but since it was brought up here I'll post here. I was intrigued by the idea that Cheetos are all made without gluten but only certain ones are gluten free. I jumped over to their website and saw this confirmed. In the listing, all are listed as "made without gluten ingredients" but only the naturals ones are "gluten free." This led me to email the company and I surprisingly got a quick response, which is what I expected. Any labeled as gluten free are tested, the others are not and share equipment. This is the email I got back:

Hi Heidi,

Thank you for contacting us about gluten free snacks.

Many of our snacks have always been made with gluten free ingredients and we appreciate the opportunity to respond to your concerns.

The snacks on our gluten free list have undergone rigorous testing to ensure that there has been no cross contamination and contain less than 20 parts per million of gluten. This is the standard set by the FDA

The snacks on our gluten free list have undergone rigorous testing to ensure that there has been no cross contamination and contain less than 20 parts per million of gluten. This is the standard set by the FDA’s 2007 Proposed Rule For Gluten-Free Labeling. Certain ingredients are also tested prior to being delivered to our plants.

Gluten is treated as an allergen in our manufacturing facilities. It may be helpful to know that we run non-seasoned chips first. The lines are thoroughly cleaned between seasoned runs that contain allergens and gluten, to prevent cross contamination. A complete sanitation is done before the non-seasoned chips are run again.

The snacks that do not contain gluten ingredients, do not have wheat rye, barley or oats in their formula, however, they have not been tested to ensure they contain less than 20 parts per million of gluten.

You'll find our regularly updated lists in the "Your Health" section of www.fritolay.com, under "For Special Dietary Needs."

Frito-Lay will continue to provide the information you need to make snacking both safe and enjoyable.

Happy snacking!

Best regards,

Belinda

Hopefully this clears up any confusion about it. Personally, since I stay away from shared equipment I guess I'm stuck with the naturals. We'll see though, I haven't tried any yet so I may be fine with the regular ones. I'm just a little too skeptical to try yet.

Thank you for your response and the update. :D

Foods are only considered gluten-free, that is, safe for people with actual celiac disease as opposed to someone who may only have gluten sensitivity, when they are certified and tested to be below 20 ppm. For some celiacs, even 20 ppm is too much. So that is what this person was saying. If foods are processed on shared equipment with wheat ingredients, they are not gluten-free. Hope this clears things up for you. 

All of that being said, I did go to the Frito-Lay website today, and as of Nov. 2, 2015, the regular crunchy Cheetos are now considered to be actually gluten-free, below 20 ppm, as opposed to simply not being made with gluten ingredients.

By law, the food cannot be labeled "gluten free" unless it has been tested to below 20ppm. That doesn't mean anything not so labeled is unsafe; it just means it has not been tested. Apples are not labeled gluten-free, but they are. See?

Do note this topic started 9 years ago and some of the posts you guys are replying to are three years old.  The crunchy cheetos which I occasionally binge eat are now part of the Frito Lay gluten-free list, so enjoy your cheesy snack! :)

    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Thanks for the reply, melprkr! Feeling like you're still in a swimming pool moving is a good way to put it. It feels kind of like motion sickness, come to think of it, or a really bad hangover. I was curious because my experience of 'brain fog' in the context of thyroid problems feels so different than brain fog caused by gluten, and I couldn't quite figure out how to explain it. Swimming pool comes pretty close, though. Hope you feel better soon as well!
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Brain fog is a common symptom.  I had a hamburger patty from a local restaurant and am suffering the effects.  Sometimes mine is bad and sometimes it is mild.  This one feels mild, provided I am not "glutened" again.  I have the exact same feelings when I am contaminated.  I actually had 2 good days this week to ony have to go back through this again.  The first day is just tired and want to sleep, but as each day goes on it seems like all I can do to concentrate and do anything.  TV is OK but for me just standing up or moving sometimes makes me dizzy.  Luckily I don't have the nausea but even sitting still I feel like I am in a swimming pool moving.  You know kind of like when you were a kid and you got in the pool or went roller skating but then got out and and you still felt like you in the pool or skating?  The anxiety and the depression is the worst.  I am taking things to help with it but it doesn't always help.  Only thing that seems to help sometimes is just going in to my room and laying there and not moving and just going to sleep.   It will pass.  Just be cautious about everything.  I have opted to let my family know that I will bring my OWN food when we have gatherings.  I don't mind being the odd man out because I am already the odd ball.  One thing I have learned and that is people mean well but mistakes happen and we are the ones who have to pay the price.   Hope you feel better soon.
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      Look into The Paleo Approach by Sara Ballentyne, PhD.  Great resource and will probably answer your questions.  I have the same problem. You have to really read labels.  The only coconut milk I can use is an organic canned one.  Others have too many ingredients that are problematic.  For now, stay with meat and vegetables as someone else has recommended.  If rice works for you, great.  If not, winter squash is good.  The diet change is overwhelming at first but then it starts to make sense.  The one good thing about an intolerance versus allergy is the possibility of someday being able to add it back into your diet once your gut has healed.
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      I went gluten free about a month ago, and was finally feeling *great* last week when wham -- my well-meaning Dad cooked me dinner and forgot to check the ingredients on the fish sauce he used. The upside of being glutened for the first time is that, after a couple weeks of feeling good, I feel like I can discern the symptoms a lot better now. I've noticed that the worst part, aside from the nausea, is the "brain fog," but I'm curious if my experience of brain fog is the same as or similar to what other people are feeling. For me, it becomes almost physically painful to concentrate on anything. If I try to read a book, or watch a TV show, it makes me feel dizzy, overwhelmed, and nauseous. For a couple days, I feel like all I can do is try to stay still and do as little as possible while I wait it out. It feels similar to anxiety, but not quite the same, and none of the usual tricks for getting through a panic attack help. Do any of you experience brain fog in a similar way? Where it basically makes you feel sick to try and concentrate on anything, even fun and relaxing things?
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      I've never gone fructose free so can't help much with that.  But any fruit is probably a problem.  If you are serious about avoiding fructose you could do a search and print out a list of foods to avoid. http://www.mayoclinic.org/fructose-intolerance/expert-answers/faq-20058097 Yes, it very possible to have multiple food intolerance issues.  Many people have multiple food intolerances.  It might help to avoid any foods that are sweet for now.  Meat and most veggies are probably the way to go.  You may want to get some jerky to eat for snacks.  Peanuts might be ok but you'll need to verify that.  Boiled eggs are probably ok.  Most soda would be a no-no.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
