Ore Ida has a gluten-free product list that is very long. I decided to try these tasty products, and after some careful testing I'm pretty sure the product list is both long and inaccurate. With the current severity of my symptoms I'm thinking it's more of a minor ingredient issue, maybe even cross-contamination due to same machinery or something similar. My guts definitely do NOT think Ore Ida is gluten-free, though. I am definitely responding to something.

The products I have tried and had trouble with: tater tots, zesty fries, fast food-style fries (the super skinny, crunchy ones).

I've eaten Tater Tots without an issue, as well as their hash browns, although they're not something I eat frequently.

you may have developed a night shade sensitivity (potatoes, tomatoes, peppers). I cannot eat any gluten free potatoe products. Try eating a baked potatoe with nothing on it and see if you react to it. If so, then it is an intolerance.

I've actually been OK with other potatoes, as far as I can tell. It's specifically when I eat Ore Ida potato products that I get a reaction. But I will double-check again by eating a plain potato, just to be sure.

I sincerely hope I can keep eating tomatoes and peppers ... sheesh. If I couldn't eat those, I would definitely cry.

I've also never had a problem with their tater tots or fries. Maybe you were feeling the lingering effects of a glutening when you started trying them? When I get a major gluten dose, I react to everything I eat for several days.

It was definitely not from a previous glutening and the Ore Ida fries were the only new thing I'd tried. I gave myself time off, then checked again and had the same results.

Just a thought- Ore Ida has soy as an ingredient in their products. It could be you are reacting to that.

Started on this journey w/ my 9 yr old son after a bout w/ the flu in the fall of 2009.
2 neg celiac blood tests, mine was also neg. No endo done. Son had x-ray, showing severe constipation. Son has latex allergy. KP for both of us.
Long family history of bowel problems, auto-immune and all sorts of cancers. My G-mother informed me that she was put on a gluten free diet after she had my mom (1950's), of course she stopped when she felt better. She has had problems ever since I can remember.
So here we are! I do have my son's Dr to thank for even bringing up celiac! Thank You Dr.B!
My adult daughter also has been helped by eating gluten-free.

I drink soy milk daily. I'm pretty clear on being able to tolerate soy, thankfully. Otherwise, what would I put in my coffee? Life would get complicated. ;-)

ETA: The more people weigh in, the more it sounds like something weird that only my body is doing. If nobody else is reacting to the Ore Ida products, there must be something else about them that's getting me. I'll keep my eyes on the nightshade family and also on soy ... any other ideas for stuff I might be missing as a non-gluten intolerance?

Ore Ida doesn't use dairy, do they? I didn't see any on the packaging, but I know I can't tolerate it ...

No prolems with Ore Ida here . . . but we probably only have had the hash browns, crinkle cuts and shoestring.


What about the pan that you are baking them on? Was it a former gluten pan? I ditched my (previous gluten) baking sheets because I couldn't get those baked on grease/oil marks off of them and I used those same pans for cookies and such.

Also a good thought, but these are new pans with fresh tin foil put down on top of them with every use (my hubby is great about trying to minimize any possible cross contamination - he's not Celiac, but he's incredibly supportive and he hates to see me sick).

I got rid of the gluten pans too. I don't trust them.

It might be a good thing to contact the company directly and talk to some one with knowledge of their labeling and product information.

I believe there was a labeling issue/error, years ago....that was corrected. And, my memory is not certain it was Ore Ida.

We use the plain uncoated fries with no trouble. Looked at the ones in the freezer and they said they have annatto. Not sure if all the types do. Its a seed to make things yellow. I have heard of several people who react badly to it. It is not gluten.

I use Ore Ida products on a weekly basis. Hash browns, crinkle cut fries, tator tots, etc. Have never had a problem with them.

So it's definitely not a gluten issue! I wonder what it is, then? Now I just feel confused and like maybe my immune system has finally gone completely bonkers.

Had potatoes for lunch today (not Ore Ida - just normal ones) and we'll see how that goes. Maybe it's anything with potato. I'll let you know tomorrow. So far, no reaction.

Maybe it's the annato! That's one I hadn't considered. Annato vs nightshades vs soy at this point.
