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.

    • It is absolutely possible for non-Celiac gluten intolerance and/or gluten sensitivity to cause extreme symptoms. The difference between those and Celiac is that Celiac will cause actual small intestinal damage to the villi, while NCGI/gluten sensitivity can have extreme symptoms, there is no damage to the small intestine.  Other causes of bloating can be SIBO or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.  The title pretty much says it all and you need antibiotics to help combat that. Basically, your small intestine's bacteria is out of whack and you have more bad bacteria than good. I know there is a test but have no experience with this. You may want to google it and read up on it and maybe ask a specialist about it too?  This is something they should be testing for anyway to figure out what is going on.  You could also have food allergies, as opposed to an intolerance like Celiac.  You can see why this is so hard to figure out sometimes! Are you sure you are completely gluten free?  This diet has a big learning curve and cross contamination is important.  Please take a look, if you already have not, at this link.  It was written by a previous member of the forum and although it is a bit lengthy, it is what you need to know about following the diet and living gluten free successfully. She did a very good job on it!  Even tiny amounts in your diet can still cause symptoms. http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ Have you been tested for vitamin deficiencies or anemia?  These could offer a clue to see whether you are malnourished or not. Many people with celiac have both deficiencies and anemia.  Between testing for these and genetic testing to see if you carry a Celiac gene might help you to rule it out if you cannot have a scope done.  But you do remember that you need to be eating gluten for the scope? 
    • Celiac disease is a tricky rascal. Just when you think you've got it under control, it sneaks up and manifests into new and often unexpected problems. At least, this is what we have found over the last decade. From contacts with others who have Celiac disease, we know we're not alone. I'm in my early thirties and find that sometimes my body acts more like that of an old man's. View the full article
    • Thank you, Gemini.   Is it possible for non-celiac gluten sensitivity or intolerance to have this severe symptoms?
      I'm on gluten free diet two weeks now and no change... What are other causes of these symptoms beside food?
    • I am trying to decipher the test and it looks to me like the Total IgA is fine.  Your number appears to be in the middle of the reference range, which would be sufficient IgA for testing.  I am in America so your country's testing is a bit different from here....I really hope I got that right!  If you have severe enough symptoms of a GI problem, some doctors here would move onto a biopsy even with negative blood results.  I think if you cannot get a full Celiac panel done, then a scope with biopsy should come next. Severe bloating has a cause and they need to rule out a food problem. There can be other causes but food is usually a big trigger. Yes, keep us updated!  We are here to help.
