Corn Chips/tostitos Scoops
0

8 posts in this topic

So...I haven't had tostitos scoops for 3 months now...simply because...well...i haven't had anything to use them with anyhow. I'm kinda scared to eat them again.....i was wondering how many of you have success with them and don't get sick? I'd like to eat them again..they say gluten free but it's not the simple gluten-free in a circle that i'm use to seeing so i dunno how much i trust it?

If you don't eat tostitos scoops what corn chip or mexican like chip do you find is good? i've had beanitos and find them good even though they are nothing like corn chips.

Lays have two versions of of products that are "safe" for us. The first are products that contain no gluten ingredients. The second are gluten free and every batch is tested. You can find more information about this on their website. I believe (but I'm not looking right now and this is from memory) that the ones that specifically say gluten free are the tested ones. At any rate you can get that list from their website. While everything is from a shared facility and lines, this is an instance where even in my paranoia I trust the ones labeled gluten free because with every batch tested I know that the likelihood of me getting sick is extremely low. I will add that I haven't looked at them lately, and refuse to buy foods with too many ingredients, things I can't easily pronounce or things I don't recognize, so I'm not sure if I'll be getting them in the future but they haven't made me sick in the past.

Additionally. Mission chips are awesome!! About a month ago I had Tostitos blue corn chips, also awesome.

Also the baked scoops only have about 3 ingredients.

I am-- I have to be very careful with chips. I stick to Lays Stax and the Mission Chips.

Oh I'll pretty much react to gluten from across the room. :lol: Maybe that is a slight exaggeration. Maybe if I learn to make sour cream I'll head out and hunt down the scoops. Why can't everything only have three ingredients? Not that I eat Cheetos any more, but I would eat Natural Cheetos because they are tested gluten free. I wouldn't eat the regular ones because they simply have no gluten containing ingredients. Not safe enough for me. :ph34r:

      Look up FODMAPS.   That might clarify things for you.  There really are a lot of diet recommendations so make sure you bring a list of questions regarding foods to your doctor's  and dietician's appointments.  
    • Recovery?
      Thank you for sharing those web sites. I will look at them. We have been gluten free since December so it's been a while. Once, he had a gluten free beer, the kind that they take the gluten out, and his legs felt very heavy and had a more difficult time walking. I really don't want to experiment.  Although I am very careful about what we eat, I am concerned that some of our medication could contain gluten. Is there any easier way to tell if medication has gluten. I did find a website which listed drugs and known gluten but every drug was on it or was determined to be gluten free
    • fructose malabsorption and gluten intolerant
      I don't have celiac but doctors or amazed I don't so they told me to fallow the gluten-free diet like I have it... any way I was wondering if one can have corn, corn starch if they have fructose malabsorption. I am so confused on what I can and can't have.. i have an appt next week hopefully with a dietitian... also can you have sugar free stuff since it's not sugar.. I'm reading online and I'm getting a bunch of mixed info on both.

      Hi all.  Still feeling the same way this past week. I'm thinking of dropping dairy starting from today, I don't know if I have a problem with it or not, but I drink 2 coffees a day with milk. I'm just constantly tired all the time, and getting trough the day is pretty hard, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my sleep was improving but the last couple of days I have been waking up at least 3 times during the night, then when I get up in the morning it feels like I have been hit by a bus, like I haven't slept at all. I keep waking up during the night needing to drink water as I feel dehydrated, I don't know why as I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday 
    • No actual diagnosis/genetic results.
      About 30% of people have a gene for Celiac.  They don't all have it because only about 1% of the population has Celiac.   It is quite possible she has something else that is causing her trouble.  Sometimes eliminating gluten helps that problem, like FODMAPS.   If it were me, I would keep her strictly gluten-free for a year or so.  See if anything develops.  Then I would try her back on small doses of gluten.  If it is something like FODMAPS, she may be able to tolerate some gluten after a while.  I would do that for 3 months .  If she is having issues I would then get her tested with a full Celiac panel and, if positive, an endoscopy.  Even if the panel is negative, if she is having issues, I would pursue more testing, ends, colonoscopy, etc. For schools to take a gluten-free or any special diet seriously, you will need a doctors note.  I am assuming US might be different in other countries.

      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.
