Potato Chips

I was wondering if anyone can advise on eating processed foods, like wise potato chips, which list ingredients that are gluten free, but does not label the package "gluten free". Since Wise makes products that are not gluten free, is it "wise" to stay away and be safe?

I thank you in advance for taking the time to read and responding.

Lay's Stax are made on dedicated lines and all varieties are gluten free.

I would trust the ingredient listing. The "official" criteria for product listing as "gluten free" had not been adopted as of yet in the US. And many companies will not refer to a product as gluten free, unless it is tested as such.

Lisa,

Thank you so much for responding. I will certainly look for Lays Stax. I'm a potato chip freak :)

One more question: two days ago I ate rice cakes, and only noticed today while eating some more, and running to the bathroom every 15 minutes...that there is an allergy warning on package made in plant that uses wheat and soy. Is it possible that I'm having a reaction to this even though the ingredients list brown rice only?

Yes some very sensitive people can react to trace amounts of cross contamination.

If you are newly diagnosed, many foods can be an issue, gluten or not, until some healing can take place. Lundberg Rice Cakes are made at a gluten free facility.

I have eaten lots of potato chips with just watching the ingrediants without any issues. Lays have just the potatoes and oil on the lables. They don't usually have the "processed in a facility that also process..." phrase either. I am cautious of the flavored chips as there are many more ingrediants and I think more likelihood it could come in contact with contaminated ingrediants. Happy snacking!

Fantastic! You just added two items to my grocery list. Thank you. I was diagnosed 11 months ago but three months later I started baking bread with gluten free oat flour not realizing that not all celiacs can tolerate this flour. 7 months down the road I'm back to where I was. It took a while for the full impact/damage to take place. It's psychologically and emotionally devistating because I thought I was being so careful, working really hard to be really careful and all this time I was eating something that was slowly doing damage. I pray I heal quickly because I'm having a difficult time going and staying at work. Again, thank you so much for your advice. g'night

Ok. I'm learning to read labels. I thought I knew how to read labels but now I really know how. Every side every word.

I've had to give up processed foods for the time being because they were still messing with me. But Utz potato chips state gluten-free on the bag are pretty good. They're not loaded with a lot of extra salt so you can actually taste the potato. Nom.

I'm committing to home cooking for now too. Especially now that I know about Lays Stax, Utz, and Lundberg rice cakes. Thanks!

Utz are my favorite chip, and it says right on the package "this is a gluten-free food". I've never had any trouble. Also don't forget about corn chips such as Fritos. fritos = :wub:

You know, if you find Lays stax, if you could mention what store you found them in, I think it might help a lot of us - I've been looking all over the place, and I haven't found a store that carries them here, yet. <_<

Just wanted to say be careful with the Fritos. The Lays Staxs are the only product that is make on gluten-free machinery. The other products on made on machinery that are simply washed in between processing. So there is a strong chance of CC and if you are sensitive to it you could be paying the price. I've been living off of Cheetos since the site says it's gluten-free. But I've noticed I was feeling really sick after just eating a few of them. I get flushed face and tummy pain and slight breathing issues. Now in all fairness I don't know if it was CC or if it was an intolerance to corn which I read some celiacs can get. So just be careful with them and go slow with them until you are sure you can handle them. Happy munching! :-)

Anyone know about the plain old Lay's potato chips and shared machinery? I like them better than Stax and they're easier to find.

Lundburg rice cakes are really good as well as being always gluten-free. I like the flavors. B)

My son had similar problems with cheetos. He now eats michael season's baked cheedar cheese curls. I find them at my grocery in the natural section. He seems to do fine with these and classic lay's potato chips.

    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Remember that you have to be eating a normal gluten diet for the testing so don't cut back & don't stop eating it. Make sure they do the full, current celiac panel: Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA   
      Also can be termed this way: Endomysial Antibody IgA
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
      GLIADIN IgG
      GLIADIN IgA
      Total Serum IgA 
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Yep, get tested for celiac.  You have plenty of digestive symptoms to indicate it.

      Hi Richie, It definitely sounds like you got glutened.  Over here in the USA they can't label foods gluten-free if they are made from gluten ingredients, period.  So your barley drink would not be labeled gluten-free here.  A while back I read something about the testing for gluten in foods not being as accurate for detecting barley hordein as it is for wheat gliaden.  So the gluten-free testing (if they do any) that your drink maker does may not be reliable. Celiac disease is an autoimmune condition.  So the immune system starts reacting when it detects gluten and damages the gut lining.  An immune reaction is not like a food poisoning event, where most of the damage is only while the food is actually in your system and then ends.  An immune reaction can continue for weeks to months.  The immune system is really quite serious about protecting our bodies.  And since it is designed to detect and attack micro-organisms it reacts to tiny amounts of gluten. Wheat, barley, and rye are the main gluten grains that affect celiacs.  But some celiacs also react to oat gluten.

      Hi Richie,  Glad you are feeling better. I wondered have you been officially diagnosed with coeliac disease? Just wondering as you say you are anaemic, that is one of the symptoms of coeliac disease, along with other general malnutrition. You don't need to eat meat for iron though, you can get it from non-heme foods, like spinach or parsley. Just be careful with the drink with barley, it may be that you only start to have symptoms if you consume a lot of it, but if you have coeliac disease the damage is still been done to your gut regardless of whether you have symptoms or not, which will ultimately lead to malnutrition as well as other things.

      I think, if all this is caused by glutening, it could be that it takes a while to work its way out of your system. I should explain about what I said about organic broccoli.   I don't have a problem with organic food,  in fact, I buy organic milk and carrots all the time, but I don't want to try organic broccoli in case it is the broccoli that is the problem, not the insecticide.    I meant to ask, are you a coeliac or is it non-coeliac gluten intolerance that you have?   I wonder what sort of support you get in Australia for these conditions once diagnosed?   Here in the UK I think the understanding is that if new gastro symptoms have lasted for more than six weeks it needs to be investigated.   I have found this very helpful advice because I do get odd twinges of pain and sometimes changes in bowel movements (sorry if tmi) but they rarely last more than a couple of weeks.   If they do persist I mention it to my gastroenteroligist and he follows it up.  I recently had a sigmoidoscopy for left sided pain and they found nothing.  Turns out it was to do with lactose intolerance, but I always imagine the worse!

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
