Has anyone had a bad reaction to these? i tried a few last night. they seemed pretty safe but soon after i ate them i started to get the usual signs...

totally could have been something else from that day or day before i guess but that was the only thing new i had worked into a meal.

anyone tried them with good or bad experiences?

I eat them all the time, and have done so for a long time. All the sodium is probably not good for me, but I have not had any celiac-related issues with them.

You could have reacted to something else in them besides gluten. I have not tried these because I checked a bag once and saw "hydrolyzed soy protein" and many other questionable ingredients. Although they say they are gluten free, the FAQ on their website doesn't give me confidence to try them even if they didn't have soy. There are multiple questions about ingredients that "could" contain gluten and each answer says something to the effect of, our supplier verifies this ingredient is gluten free, yada yada, yada....When you have a product that contains oat fiber, caramel color, soy sauce, malt dextrin, and msg (assuming these ingredients all come from a different supplier there) it seems like the risk of cross contamination would be higher than if they only contained one of those ingredients. This is just my opinion of course. I go for foods with as few ingredients as possible these days. You may have reacted to any one of those ingredients alone, for example, even if the oats are gluten free some people can not tolerate oats and the same goes for the other ingredients. http://www.riceworkssnacks.com/faq_USA.html

I've never had a problem with them either - eat them way too much !

I do avoid dairy quite a bit and some flavorings bother me (don't know what's in them that does so). I don't eat the parmesan ones for that reason...and sometimes the red chili ones don't sit well. I don't think it's a gluten reaction though - just the chemicals. It really depends on the status of my stomach to begin with.

I eat the plain ones a lot, and the bbq.

I got incredibly sick from eating these, but it was before I realized that I couldn't eat soy, either.

OMG I got so sick from these chips. stay away! and I thought I was doing myself a favor eating a gluten free snack. there is no number on the package to call and find out what the deal is with these. they are cc or have a high bad fat content.

once you heal you can snack on lays pot chips if you have a craving.

I have just had a terrible reaction to these. After reading some of the other posts, I'm wondering if it's the soy. I am still only 5 months into this gluten free lifestyle. Does soy give celiacs a hard time? I suppose I'm still not clear on all the things that set me off. I glutened myself one week ago today with a few panko breadcrumbs and was in very bad shape until today...first time I'd felt bad in 5 months - I digress - any other chips that we could use as alternatives that are better?

Crunchmaster chips are good (not sure they can be called a chip or a cracker since I don't have any right now). I prefer the original flavor. Lays Stax potato chips are marked gluten-free on the container. I've been buying Utz potato chips but don't think they're available nationally.

Some of us find out we have a secondary intolerance once we go gluten free. Soy is just one that seems to be common. Dairy is another common problem some peopel have at first. Lay's Wavy potato chips are gluten-free and soy free. There's also a brand called Food Should Taste Good that has some gluten-free and Soy free varieties. Many brands of corn chips are gluten-free and soy free too. I like Grande brand tortilla chips. Most of time I make my own tortilla chips by taking Mission corn tortillas, cutting them with a pizza cutter, spraying with olive oil and baking at 375 for 10-15 minutes.

I don't know what it is about those Riceworks chips. They taste good but always give me a stomach ache. I have dairy & soy in other things. I have tried a couple of different flavors and the same thing. So I don't get them

I react to them. Too bad, cause they're tasty. I've tried them two separate times, the "sea salt" flavor and the "wild rice sea salt and black sesame" flavor. Both times I got very sick within a few hours and felt crappy for a day or two.

I know that foods other than gluten bother me, so I don't automatically blame gluten. But I don't know which ingredient(s) caused it. Also, I can't find soy, as others mentioned, in the ingredients of either of these particular flavors. Am I missing something obvious or are you guys talking about different flavors?

I've never had a problem with them, but I've only eaten them from little snack bags twice. Food should taste good sweet potato chips are wicked awesome.

I can't eat them either, but I'm pretty sure it is only because of the sesame in them. And my girls didn't care for the taste, but I do not recall my youngest having a reaction to them.

I just bought some of the Sweet Chili Riceworks chips at Costco. I ate a bowl-full and within 30 minutes my suspected DH started boiling up. I know have a giant, itching, burning rash under both arms. Again. I'm thrilled.

I don't know if its gluten but whatever it is will keep me away.

I tried the sea salt variety and liked them, they're sort of like tortilla chips. Then my lips went numb, a sign of an allergic reaction. The only ingredient on the list I'm not 100% sure I am not allergic to is the sesame seeds...I've been avoiding sesame seeds since then.

I have terrible gluten reactions every time I've eaten these. The last time I had them I had stomach pains and nausea and broke out in DH on my face within about 10 minutes. I found this on their website:

I don't know what's in them, I suspect salicylate levels off the charts - dyes (natural but super processed), preservatives (again, natural but super processed), I think a form of MSG (one or more glutamates, but not specifically MSG) if I read the label on the sweet chili chips correctly....

I looked up the ingredients when I reacted to them because I was so curious and wanted to keep a record of what set off my DH and neuro symptoms.

I have not reacted to anything else labeled gluten-free the way I reacted to Rice Works. I think the Sweet Chili chips are a unique combination of several ingredients that many Celiacs or people with food intolerances are better off avoiding. DH sufferers are probably at an even higher risk since salicylates are known to aggravate the condition.

Gluten is the only ingredient I avoid in food, except the occasional low-iodine periods as needed. I eat soy, dairy, corn - all of it. No problem. I do admit to an aversion to preservatives, glutamates...and if I would have used common sense and read the label before purchase I wouldn't have purchased them.

Let's just say I give them a wide berth - and that's a closed bag. I'd probably slap someone if they brought an open bag near me. Weeks of rash and neuro symptoms were no fun.

I eat Riceworks regularly and have not had any problems. I have not tried the sweet chili ones, though.

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.
    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • 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??
