10 posts in this topic

Are Baked Lays potato chips gluten free? And what about the Baked Scoops? We eat those a lot in our house since I am on Weight Watchers, but my daughter was just recently diagnosed with Celiacs so I wanted to be sure she could have the Baked Lays products. Thanks!!!

There is a lot of talk on the Forum about chips , I read that someone posted I can't find a chips that works. I have the same problem. So I suggest that you try Gluten Free Pretzil sticks from Glutino. They sell them on line I guess and at Whole Foods. They replace the craving for chips , and I have no trouble with them . Oh yeh they taste Good :D

The only safe Lays chip is the original (not flavored) Stax. Everything else seems to be subject to cross-contamination. You might luck out and eat a bag or two without problems and then get really sick on the next one. Original Stax are produced on dedicated equipment.

I've been OK with their Wavy and Ruffles (don't know if this is luck or the cross-contamination is so slight that it doesn't bother me etc.), but I was eating Cheetos for about a week and I was so sick for that week, go figure. Ever since not eating Cheetos again I have felt great, so no more Cheetos for me. Just another one of those gotta try it and see how you do things I guess.

In the year and a half since I've been diagnosed I haven't had a problem with any Frito Lay product. Of course I only eat the ones that don't contain wheat in the ingredients.

best regards, lm

I make my own potato chips now, it's fairly simple to do and they taste better than any store bought chips

Me too. I practically live on the scoops with pace picante sauce. I am very sensitive and haven't had a problem but I only buy the scoops, stax, and sometimes the big frito's. For other chips, I haven't had a problem with the regular cape cod potato chips.

This is true. While I've never had a problem with the regular potato chips, Cheetos, or Fritos, I did buy a bag of Baked Lays the other day and got sick. When I finished the bag a week later (wanting to double check if that was it), I did have a reaction but only a weak reaction (i.e., just a few bumps on my elbow instead of bumps all over my feet and rump). So I don't know what that means, but if you're very sensitive, I wouldn't risk it.

We have followed the Frito-Lay list on their site (not just the Lays Stax) and have not had a problem so far (been over a year for us). For anyone who likes Cheetos, we have switched to Robert's Gourmet Tings. They are like Cheetos without the powdered cheese coating. They are run on a shared line, but the ingredient list is much shorter and does not include MSG. I have found them at Whole Foods and at Kroger.

    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone! 
    • Welcome to the club you never wanted to join! The good thing about this club is that you don't have to take any pills, get radiation or chemo, or stick yourself with a needle every day. Things could be much worse than this. Does your brother live close? If so he could go to your same savvy doc. That would be great! Also what about your mom?
    • Hi There! I am Aly and I have suffered seriously for about 4 years with an huge increase in symptoms. I just recently started a gluten free diet a few months ago and I am sure I make mistakes because I feel it when I do. Your symptoms are a lot like mine and after many blood tests and visits to Neurologist still no answers. They diagnosed with relapse/remission MS for all these years and now say its not that. It's Auto-immune but no answers. They never tested me for Celiac's but A friend suggested I try going gluten free. Here are my symptoms below.  See if you relate or if anyone can relate. Heat Sensitivity, Nerves jumping in face and eyes, sometimes pain and redness around the skin of eyes, kinda pinkish.... occasional trimmers coupled with loss of coordination and balance along with in and out slurred speech, a other varying waves of relapse include Extreme fatigue and a huge fog comes over me. I can't sit up or stand without getting dizzy and feel like passing out. For a few days of the relapse It's just bed rest. The other parts are off and on having to use cane. Up and down, symptoms change but eventually the waves grow dim and I go back to being normal for a while. Things seem to get exacerbated when I do to much like go more than 4 -5 hours without taking a break and resting, lifting anything to heavy...so it seems to be straining things lead me to relapse. I used to be go go go...on the run but life has changed and I find that although I am eating gluten free and being careful not to relapse, I entered another a month ago and I am having to get IV steroid infusion tomorrow to break the cycle of this one. Just when I think I am beginning to feel better and go do something I go right back down. Its seems Gabapentin, Baclofen, and LOTS of rest only get me where I need to be again. It's frustrating. I wanted to share as well so that we can combine forces to get some answers! I have decided to go to a Allergy Clinic of sorts to try and get tested for environmental and food allergies. I am sorry you do not have funding for care. See if there is local clinic that can at least run some preliminary blood work on you. I am not sure if you can see one now in your state being 17 but there is usually a 211 or a 311 line in most cities that will give you the list of places you can go for free or on sliding scale. See if they will run any allergy panels as well. I have found that we have to be proactive in our own care because sometimes there is no simple answer and the more we talk one another with the research sometimes we do on own, we find out more than 4 years of going to a doctor could ever tell you. Thanks for all your input here. I look forward to being a member and helping where I can! I will send updates as I get them. Blessings to you all! Aly
