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:

Are riceworks

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.
