Potato Chips

18 posts in this topic

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. <_<

I have found Lays stax at Target & Walmart in Kansas City area.

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.

    • Marshmallow Fruity Pebbles
      I have been gluten free now since February and I recently purchased a box of Marshmallows Fruity Pebbles and looked at the ingredients (which none indicated gluten content), but am just wondering if anyone has had a problem with them. 
    • Test Results
      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it. 
    • Gardasil
      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
