Does the company process flavors that are not gluten-free (first see if you can find that out - maybe on the company website)? If they do, your best bet is to call the company. Ask them if they process the flavor you want on dedicated gluten-free lines. If not, ask them about their policies regarding cleaning shared equipment in between batches.

Walkers are quite good...

A while ago they had a CC problem with the 'old' cheese and onion line (at that time non gluten-free) contaminating the salt and vinegar and they came clean so I tend to trust more than most.

However, I really can't be bothered saying more when the poster cannot even be bothered to type 'someone'.

I find this extremely offensive, someone whom expects me to answer a question they cannot be bothered to formulate so i guess it will be the last post of mak07 I bother to answer until they learn English.

Walkers plain are ok - but I'm not so confident on other flavours (they may say 'suitable for coeliacs' but they often contain flavourings derived from Wheat - -codex levels <_< )

Steve, mak07 is probably young and familiar with using 'text' speak ;)

Funny thing...

I worked onsite for a week and the only food I could find was crisps and the new walkers corn tortilla things.

I got accused (in a light hearted way) of being sponsored by Walkers.

Nikki ... I agree on the codex stuff.. however I do think walkers make more effort than most. In a bizarre chance I was in England the weekend they made the error and actually got one of the suspect packets before I found out and reacted accordingly.

I might be getting some low grade gluten from the S&V and corn tortillas, its hard to say because I got so essed up a week or so ago and I'm still paying the price of risking going to an Italian resto with my Italian class .. (I'm learning Italian now I'm stuck in London)

Comments that lack proper punctuation and spelling and use lots of abbreviations are difficult to read. I tend to not answer questions if they are written in "text-speak" because it takes so much extra concentration and time for me to read and understand the question. Maybe I'm just old and brain fogged, but a well-formulated post indicates that the poster put a certain amount of effort into the post which means I am willing to put effort into replying to it.

Anyway, I have eaten Walkers plain crisps with no problem, but I have no idea if they are manufactured on shared equipment.

    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      I have an omelette every  morning and mix up the filling, different stir fried veggies, spinach, avocado etc.  Super nutritious and can keep me going all day if need be.   I went awhile after gluten-free before eating cereal and now I eat it with coconut milk, Tesco's own brand is nice enough. Maybe an option if you want to experiment with avoiding dairy for awhile whilst you heal? Best of luck!
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Hi!  I know I'll never forget the day I was told after an endo- and colonoscopy that I indeed had celiac disease.  I immediately went to a Trader Joe's grocery store and bought some gluten-free things to eat. about a month later I had a Total meltdown in my car outside a grocery store---feeling So Sorry for myself!   I cried and said I'll Never to able to eat what I want to again! that was 10 years ago and gluten-free foods have come a long way.... I love having a gluten-free everything bagel and delicious gluten-free 'Oreo cookies'----neither of which there were 10years ago. Everyone who has responded so far have Great Tips!  The best news is that your Diet will cure you!  I do not know of any other condition where this is true!! BTW---some of your friends and family Will understand and will make sure you aren't hung out to dry foodwise........and others just won't/can't understand and will think that just avoiding bread is enough..... Be kind, but don't risk your health to be nice to someone who forgot or doesn't understand. keep reading!  Keep trying different gluten-free foods to find what you like!   Best wishes!!  
    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      It has never even been turned on. As I recall, it is capable of milling oats as well as popcorn. I don't know about coconut or other nuts but I can find out.
    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      The very first question is.... Was that Retsel grain mill used for gluten before your diagnosis? If the answer is yes then the 2nd question is can it be COMPLETELY DISASSEMBLED and cleaned in every single nook & cranny? If the answer to that is no, then you can't use that grain mill because you will be continually cross contaminating yourself.  3rd question: Will that mill do things like coconut? The grains that are oily. Some mills won't. Better check that out. I got a NutriMill & it can not do oily grains or things like coconut. No oats as they're oily, same for nuts. Rice flour it does a great job on & gets it as fine as I can buy it.

      Boy, you've sure had a rough time of it! My heart goes out to you! I love your positive attitude about coping until your villi heal more. THAT is your greatest ally in this journey. Okay, now to your problems...... Your gut is still damaged. You aren't healed yet - you know that as you've stated it. It can be really wonky for the first 6 months to a year. It's like being on a roller coaster ride & you can have good days & sucko days & good weeks & weeks that are the absolute pits. My advice would be to ditch all the processed gluten free foods. You'll heal faster & have less problems eating "whole foods" --- fresh or frozen fruits & veggies, meats & dairy as long as you can tolerate it. Forget the corn flakes & rice krispies. They may be gluten free but it's still processed food & therefore full of all kinds of chemicals & preservatives & stuff you don't need. We always tell people to spend at least the 1st 6 months avoiding the processed foods. Time enough to get into those after you heal right? How about for breakfast you have a couple eggs, either fried or pan scrambled. Some fruit -- bananas, pears, whatever floats your boat, a glass of milk, some yogurt. You may need to have well cooked foods for a while & that means mushy veggies as well as fruit. From the sound of the extent of damage you had I would say that's where you ought to be at this point. You don't want to make things any harder on your gut than necessary for the time being. You do have one great big thing in your favor & that's your age. You're young & will by all rights heal up much faster than us old geezers who weren't diagnosed until our 50's, 60's & 70's after a lifetime of damage.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
