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.
