Hi pinkscooby!

I got zapped by a package of the tostitos bite size gold tortilla chips. I was so bummed. I think that you have to be careful with Lays because of CC-- and I have seen more comments to that effect here. I won't buy them again for a really long time, if ever.

On the other hand I have had really good luck with smaller "natural" brands like kettle potato chips.

What about scooby snacks? Are they gluten free?

On the other hand, there are those of us who have never been glutened by Lays. I only eat Lay's Regular Chips or Ruffles Regular Chips--none of the others, and I have never been glutened by them.

For me, the Lay's chips were hit or miss, and I don't feel like taking chances like that. I do eat the Original Flavor Lay's Stax with no problems--not as good as the Natural line, but safe.

That's wierd, 'cause I've never seen or even heard of Tostidos bite size gold tortilla chips. I eat Tostido's 100% white corn bite size chips just about every day. I eat a lot of nachos, and chips with avocado, or cheese & salsa. Also Fritos, Cheetos, Ruffles, and Lay's Kettle Cooked original extra crunchy potato chips (I'm currently on a big binge on these).

Never once have I gotten glutened eating any Frito Lay product! <_< Just my experience.

best regards, lm

I get sick every single time I eat doritos. I don't know if its CC or just something in them that doesn't agree with me.

I was overjoyed when I saw the list when first diagnosed also. Unfortunately many here will tell you that they aren't as safe as we need them to be. I would wait until I was fully healed before eating any of their products and when you do try them don't consume anything else risky at the same time. Many eat the plain Lays with no problem but most of the other stuff folks do react to. The choice to risk it is up to you.

Hi Larry Mac :) (I have an uncle who could use the same moniker)

I haven't had trouble with the potato chips either--other than the usual eating too many of them.

Our CUB supermarket carries the bite size gold chips-- they are small rounds and they have a very nice flavor (fairly refined flavor for yellow corn)-- I wonder if they are distributed regionally. Maybe that has something to do with it too.

Or maybe certain products are made on different lines (even at entirely different factories) or it could be the luck of the draw as to which product was made on that equipment before a gluten-free run and how close your particular bag was to the beginning of the new run.

I, like you, am very fond of nachos. Sadly, I haven't had any since (I tend to hold a grudge against a food that made me sick :lol:) I might eat the potato chips- don't much like cheetos (it's the nasty orange finger prints that get me.) But now I might give the white corn bite size a try in a bit (maybe in a few months). Thanks for the info.

Thank you pinkscooby

For the extenisve list of many things I thought were on the NO NO list. I know I recently read the Pringles label and found out they do have "wheat" listed. But, at least it was listed. I tend to stick to low salt plain potatoe chips and tortilla chips. Interesting to know now I can add things like Cheetos. Which I might feel like once or twice a year.

Thanks again for obtaining and copy/posting the listing. I am just assuming that the Canadian production lines are the same :ph34r: , as I realize that most of the members here, 80% odd are from the States.

The only Pringles I've found that don't list wheat are the fat free ones. But I'm a little afraid of those as they contain Olestra. I have eaten them without incident. However, I don't think I need any potential diarreah sources as I seem to have that area covered pretty well.

Frito Lay Staxx don't have wheat, although they are not near as good as Pringles IMO.

I wonder if Frito-Lay products vary in safety by region. At a support group meeting, someone told me that the products processed in the Plano, Texas plant were safer than other Frito-Lay products. This was only her subjective opinion based on eating Frito-Lay products on road trips that had been processed at other plants.

Since I live in Austin, most of the Frito-Lay products available to me are from the Plano plant. I have never reacted. I do check to make sure I'm buying Plano processed product before I purchase.

I'm curious where the chips that caused reactions were processed...

I thought regular doritos had wheat in them?

They do! It was my favorite snack before dx.

But there are some kinds that don't... maybe she means one of those.

Yep the white natural kind do not have wheat. We have had those but not recently.

It would be interesting to know how many of these items are also dairy free?

Probably not many since most of the flavors say cheese or sour cream. I like plain anyway.

The most important info for me is this

I wish they would put this info on the bags it would have saved me a lot of misery early in the diet.

Me too! <_< Other than the Stax, I don't chance them anymore.

That would be really interesting to test some time.

My daughter is pretty extra sensitive and ate some of the fritos corn chips a couple days ago and got so sick off of them, I felt awful. If there was a plant that made them with less potential CC, that would really awesome to find out, ya know?

I know this is an old post, but maybe this will help someone. I was looking into Frito's bean dip and it looks like their policies have changed since last year. There are a few more varieties that are tested for gluten. It sounds as though the top group are ran on dedicated lines and the bottom group is not, but I have not confirmed this.

From their site: http://www.fritolay.com/your-health/us-products-not-containing-gluten-ingredients.html

Some people suffer from an intolerance to foods containing gluten, which is a type of protein found in wheat, rye and barley. Frito-Lay has validated through analytical testing that the following products contain less than 20 ppm of gluten.

Please note: The information provided pertains only to products made and distributed in the U.S. Products sold in other countries under similar brands may be made using slightly different recipes and ingredients to accommodate local needs and preferences.

    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Brain fog is a common symptom.  I had a hamburger patty from a local restaurant and am suffering the effects.  Sometimes mine is bad and sometimes it is mild.  This one feels mild, provided I am not "glutened" again.  I have the exact same feelings when I am contaminated.  I actually had 2 good days this week to ony have to go back through this again.  The first day is just tired and want to sleep, but as each day goes on it seems like all I can do to concentrate and do anything.  TV is OK but for me just standing up or moving sometimes makes me dizzy.  Luckily I don't have the nausea but even sitting still I feel like I am in a swimming pool moving.  You know kind of like when you were a kid and you got in the pool or went roller skating but then got out and and you still felt like you in the pool or skating?  The anxiety and the depression is the worst.  I am taking things to help with it but it doesn't always help.  Only thing that seems to help sometimes is just going in to my room and laying there and not moving and just going to sleep.   It will pass.  Just be cautious about everything.  I have opted to let my family know that I will bring my OWN food when we have gatherings.  I don't mind being the odd man out because I am already the odd ball.  One thing I have learned and that is people mean well but mistakes happen and we are the ones who have to pay the price.   Hope you feel better soon.
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      Look into The Paleo Approach by Sara Ballentyne, PhD.  Great resource and will probably answer your questions.  I have the same problem. You have to really read labels.  The only coconut milk I can use is an organic canned one.  Others have too many ingredients that are problematic.  For now, stay with meat and vegetables as someone else has recommended.  If rice works for you, great.  If not, winter squash is good.  The diet change is overwhelming at first but then it starts to make sense.  The one good thing about an intolerance versus allergy is the possibility of someday being able to add it back into your diet once your gut has healed.
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      I went gluten free about a month ago, and was finally feeling *great* last week when wham -- my well-meaning Dad cooked me dinner and forgot to check the ingredients on the fish sauce he used. The upside of being glutened for the first time is that, after a couple weeks of feeling good, I feel like I can discern the symptoms a lot better now. I've noticed that the worst part, aside from the nausea, is the "brain fog," but I'm curious if my experience of brain fog is the same as or similar to what other people are feeling. For me, it becomes almost physically painful to concentrate on anything. If I try to read a book, or watch a TV show, it makes me feel dizzy, overwhelmed, and nauseous. For a couple days, I feel like all I can do is try to stay still and do as little as possible while I wait it out. It feels similar to anxiety, but not quite the same, and none of the usual tricks for getting through a panic attack help. Do any of you experience brain fog in a similar way? Where it basically makes you feel sick to try and concentrate on anything, even fun and relaxing things?
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      I've never gone fructose free so can't help much with that.  But any fruit is probably a problem.  If you are serious about avoiding fructose you could do a search and print out a list of foods to avoid. http://www.mayoclinic.org/fructose-intolerance/expert-answers/faq-20058097 Yes, it very possible to have multiple food intolerance issues.  Many people have multiple food intolerances.  It might help to avoid any foods that are sweet for now.  Meat and most veggies are probably the way to go.  You may want to get some jerky to eat for snacks.  Peanuts might be ok but you'll need to verify that.  Boiled eggs are probably ok.  Most soda would be a no-no.

      Hi Courtney, You asked about dairy, and RMJ got it right.  Celiac disease destroys the villi lining of the small intestine.  Those villi make the lactase enzyme we need to digest dairy. Sigmoid colon thickening could be related to diverticulitis.  Which according to Wiki is a fairly common condition but doesn't always cause symptoms.  Diverticulitis can cause a problem if there is an infection though.  The sigmoid colon is part of the large intestine.  Celiac disease affects the small intestine, so celiac isn't likely involved.  I am not sure why the resident suggested celiac, unless there were some other reason to do so.  Possibly the weight loss, which could be explained by celiac disease.  Thickening of the colon may happen with Crohn's disease also.  And I'm not sure about UCD (ulcerative colitis disease) but it might cause that also, not sure https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diverticulosis https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sigmoid_colon http://biology-pages.info/G/GITract.html#pancreas http://www.ccfa.org/what-are-crohns-and-colitis/what-is-ulcerative-colitis/

      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.
