Folks, this original information is more than 2 years old now. Who knows whether it still applies.

Richard, I clicked the link above - they are always updated to the day when you click a link - I don't have the regards at this time about the numbers to look for - but the disclaimer was there.....I haven't felt like this in a long time since I'm so careful and only gradually add a new sauce or candy....but it's very random that I do so.

I did in fact feel the squeezing and twisting in my neck last nite - I have used the last of my leftover chili to make the dip. The only new thing was the tostitos.

Thankfully I am not that sensitive to CC and only feel the slightness in the neck when it happens (like with Maxwell House coffee)

Nevertheless....I got glutened by them - purchased in GR Mich at a spartan store.

So, old or not - it definitely still pertains.

Thanks for being cautious for us tho :D

This is so frustrating, I have been eating frito lays... I am going to stop. I truly wish there was a clear cut statement on food. Why should I have to call and email and find product numbers. I know I am among the super sensitive of us but geesh. This is so hard and I am getting really down about it. I know its better to eat whole foods..but those of us who don't.. just make it clear.

Fully acknowledging there are individuals who have a myriad of health ailments, intolerances, extreme insensitivities, etc., which is very unfortunate, I would still like to balance this post with the info that there are Celiacs that have no problems with Frito Lay products that do not contain wheat. That is, those where there are no wheat ingredients listed on the label.

I just don't want all newly diagnosed Celiacs to be unnecessarily alarmed. Properly informed, yes. In my opinion, the chance of cross contamination in any food product is small, and in any case, if it exists, is variable. It is not a constant. Not all food items made in a facility that also makes wheat containing products can be contaminated. Nor, if any are, to the same degree.

best regards, lm

Gee isn't that nice of them :angry: How about putting a 'made in a facility that processes wheat on the label', oh wait that would cut their sales and then they couldn't put out a list 4 pages long of cross contamininated items that newbies think are safe. I will never buy their products even if they do start to label truthfully I would not trust them and their gluten-free lists of items that are not really gluten-free keep a lot of sick.

Not only should they put 'made in a facility that processes wheat' on the label, they should remove the information on their website that says they are glutten free.

I am one of the ever increasing number of Celiacs diagnosed over the past few years who have little or no symptoms. These discussions certainly raise a dilemma for me. If I do not have obvious symptoms to show I have been gluttened, how do I know what my sensitivity is to cross contamination issues like this one. My approach has been to err on the side of caution, but it is obvious from all the posts like this that I could be greatly restricting my diet (maybe unnecessarily?)

Cheers,

Doug

Great information. Wal-Mart's Great Value corn chips taste pretty good and are clearly marked gluten free. I have noticed that some WM's do not carry their own brand of corn chips for some reason,so they may not be available at your local store.

I'm not so happy with Wal-Mart's Great Value line at the moment. I had my husband pick up a jar of their pizza sauce since it was listed as gluten-free in my Cecilia's Marketplace book. Right there on the jar, it says "a naturally gluten free food" but in another place on the jar, it says "may contain traces of ... wheat". Don't put the term "gluten free" anywhere on a product that also displays that disclaimer!!!!! Not to say that all their stuff isn't good or anything, and I do appreciate the disclaimer being there b/c I just won't buy the product again in that case, but I really want to be able to believe that anything someone actually takes the time to label as gluten-free in any way really is gluten-free!

Sadly, I've seen this on several items at Wal-Mart.

My mom has gotten confused because she sees the "Naturally Gluten Free Food" label on the front and buys it for me and uses it in a recipe. Later I discover the can and the tiny words "May contain traces of wheat" on the back of the label...BOO Wal-Mart!! This was a terrible decision to include both phrases on a label! You can't have it both ways!

Just because they're made in a facility that also processes wheat does not mean they're not gluten free by nature due to their ingrediants. Growing up in a snackfood town, I know for a fact that there is a lengthy cleaning process for the belts when they're switching products. Does that mean there isn't room for cross contamination? No way...but let's not give them the big scarlet letter yet! I've never gotten ill off of tostitos, I eat them regularly and am extremely sensitive. It's really for each of us to decide what works best for ourselves...no reason to condemn someone who actually does attempt to give us something we can have!

I get the Tostitos dipping strips and eat them every day.

Or I did before I got my dental work.

I've never had a problem in the least.

Also, On the Border restaurant style, they are crispy and yummy

and I've never had a problem with those, either. :)

I hate to say it but I have been having some problems with tostitos, not as intense as I can have but deffinatly some problems. I am wondering if some of the very sensitive people could tell me what brands they eat that are for sure safe, or is there a recipe to make your own?

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
