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.

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back.
