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 FDAs 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,

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.
