Having come to recently realize that I'm terribly allergic to sunflower in any form and any amount, I'm rather frustrated. I can't eat corn or tortilla chips because I'm allergic to corn. Now it seems I can't eat anything else. I've hit every store in town and all the chips I could eat have sunflower oil to some degree in them. When the hell did sunflower oil become so popular and why?

Does anyone know of any specialty brands of chips that are of course also gluten-free that are made without sunflower oil or corn? The only thing in the chip aisle I can eat are pork rinds, and while I like them well enough they don't handle a dip :blink:

Yes, I could live without chips quite nicely, but it's just frustrating to have so few options; less and less every day it seems.

Violet,
Could I ask what happens when you eat things with sunflower oil in them?
I'm in the process of trying to rule out other possible food intolerances, & it seems like when I eat tortilla or potato chips (gluten free of course) I still get major "tummy rumbles", bloating, & even some joint/muscle pain. One person mentioned possible potato intolerance, another mentioned maybe it's safflower oil...I don't know what it is. Just wondering what it is for you?
Thanks a bunch!

The only Cape Cod chips without a risk of gluten cc are the russet brown ones. The rest are made in the same room as some with gluten and there is gluten "flying around the room" according to the phone rep when I called.

You could always make your own, my mom use to all the time, you can buy a slicer to make potato chips, and use a fry daddy and whatever oil suits you best

A product called Solea uses olive oil. I've seen a couple other brands at the health food store that use olive oil - can't remember the names though.

I remember looking at Cape Cod in Vons, but I didn't buy it either because the label listened a mix of oils, not just canola oil, or because it had a cross contamination warning on it.

The health food store here doesn't stock anything I can eat. I'll see if they have a distributor for Solea. Thanks.

Sunflower oil or seed makes me itch something terrible. I already have an itching issue, but within an hour or so of ingesting sunflower oil it gets really bad.

The corn just makes my stomach rumble and causes gas and bloating. Two totally different allergic reactions. Actually it depends on the product. Popcorn cornstarch and cooked whole corn go straight through me inside fifteen minutes. Corn meal or ground corn causes the rumbling and gas, and some organic fine corn flours cause the least amount of reaction.
