Lays Stax
0

15 posts in this topic

I ate some of those Cheddar Lay Stax last night and I woke up this morning feeling HORRIBLE! It says it is naturally gluten free on the label, but something in it made me sick. Maybe it is the cheddar in it? I've eaten other dairy products and i don't think it has really bothered me before. So why did this bother me now? This has been a really bad day! My boyfriend and I just broke up and the stress is definitely not helping!! I wish I had something to help the nausea. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks! :)

Something in them doesn't agree with me either, I think it may be the soy. Could you have a problem with soy?

I have been wondering about that because when I eat soy ice cream it kind of upsets my stomach. Can they just do an allergy test to check about the soy? I go to my gastro doctor tomorrow and I want to see if he can check me for other intolerences.

Thank you for the help! :)

I know my husband (who is not celiac) gets a gut ache when he eats the Stacked type of potatoe chip (be it lays or pringles). there is so much other stuff added cause they form the chip in a machine.

He doesnt get a stomach ache when he eats regular potatoe chips.

I agree that it could be the soy or any of the other crap they add to make the chip form the pretty little stack of uniform chips

If soy upsets your stomach it might be more of a sensitivity or an intolerance, rather than an actual food allergy. If that's the case, it might be hard to test in a doctor's office.

Also, if a highly processed food such as Cheddar Lays Stax makes you sick, it doesn't necessarily mean you're allergic to a specific ingredient. It might have more to do with the way the food processed, the unnatural state of the ingredients, or a certain combination of artificial ingredients that might just not agree with your body.

The stress your body is under might be a factor as well. Sorry you got sick.

Lays Stax are the only Lays chips I will eat because they are made on dedicated lines, so I don't think it was gluten. I am very, very sensitive and eat these all the time with no problems.

I have realized that I can't tolerate MSG since going gluten-free. The plain/original chips don't contain MSG but I'm pretty sure when I looked that all the flavored chips do contain MSG. Could that be the issue?

Hope you feel better.

so lay stax flavours with gluten (pizza flavour etc) are processed somewhere else?

I've had problems with them in the past - but not every time. Just every so often. I think mainly when I ate a lot of them. :blink:

I've stopped eating them, but I eat regular baked lays, and I've never had a problem with them. :D

I'm sorry about your break up! Hope you're feeling better soon!

Thanks everyone for helping!! I might try the plain baked lays later when I feel better. I think I'm just sick bc of something in the chips(i'm gonna ask my doctor if he can allergy test me for other foods) and from all the stress. Hopefully it will get better soon!

I checked it out a while ago, but if I remember correctly, all the Lays Stax are on dedicated lines. I only eat the plain ones because they are the only ones without MSG. Other Lay's products are not made on gluten-free lines and I've had cc issues with them. Someone mentioned the Baked Lays - those are my favorite chips ever and they get me sick everytime. So, if you are playing it safe, I would go with the Stax and not other Lay's products.

to a previous poster - Pringles are not gluten-free and should be avoided. Man they're tasty though.

I eat the plain Lays Stax all the time and have no problems. I don't touch any of the other flavors because of casein though.

All of the Stax flavors are gluten-free, even the pizza.

I've never had Lay's Stax; however, Lay's other naturally gluten free chips have *serious* cross contamination issues.

Lay's makes a few items on dedicated lines, including Stax. Those items are much less likely to have a problem with CC, and I've heard very few complaints about Stax.

LAYS STAX MAKE ME SICKER THAN I'VE EVER BEEN IN MY LIFE!!! I think they are full of potatoes when they say they are gluten free! I have a wheat intolerance which may or may not be Celiac disease but I eat gluten-free and feel good, so I'm sticking with it. I ate the Lays stacks original and got the worst stomach ache. I saw that the flavored ones had MSG which I thought was a No No for gluten-free eating, so I wondered how they could list them as gluten-free> Anyway BEWARE!!! Eat regualr potato chips, you'd be better off.

    • Acne are not itchy or only mildly itchy and they look like red bumps with or without white centers. The bumps are quite separated from each other. What did you start to eat after going gluten-free? More fruits and sugary foods? This can trigger acne.  http://www.ehealthstar.com/conditions/acne-vulgaris Dermatitis herpetiformis can be very itchy and the bumps are more close together and they tend to crust over.  
    • What about Xanthan gum?  It really bothers me, so I avoid most commercially processed gluten-free breads, etc.  Never bothers my hubby though.  
    • I use to get them before I went gluten-free.  I stopped eating oats because it also does give me canker sores and causes my toes to get cracked underneath.  
    • I had quite a few of the medical problems that you have before I figured out that gluten was the problem. I can’t do basic math or writing when I eat gluten also I get depressed, irritable, low energy, etc. The best route to go is to do an elimination diet and monitor how certain foods affect you. I eliminated MSG (Monosodium Glutamate), Nitrite, and oat based on the reactions that I get once I consume them. You must be disciplined on a gluten free diet, there is not such a thing as –It is just one cookie! If you can manage to go 100% gluten-free for three weeks and you see those problems going away, you will have a good idea if that is the cause of your problems. The blood test I did after being gluten-free for two years came back negative so the doctor just make me feel that I was crazy and making things up. I have a stool test done which came back with elevated igA also a gene test indicating I have two genes that code for gluten sensitivity. My lactose intolerance went away too, eating a lot of cheese now. Rash in arms? gone, Brown spots in teeth? Gone, Intestinal noises? Gone, Lack of bladder control? Gone, Constipation? Gone, and a lot others.   
    • Oh you're most welcome!  Another thing --- no steroids, oral or injected for 2 months prior to a dh biopsy. Lay off any topical steroid creams for 2 weeks prior. Really, stand your ground with them. It would also be great if you can get a friend or family member to go with you in case they take the biopsy from somewhere that you can't see such as the back of your neck. Your friend/family member can watch to make sure they don't take it directly ON a lesion. Do you have a primary care doc? You can also go to that doc & ask for a full celiac panel PLUS an eTG or TG3. 60% of people with dh test negative on the celiac blood panel but maybe you're one of the 40% who will test positive. It's worth a shot.
