Stax are produced on a dedicated line, so they claim there isn't a risk of cc for them. I would guess that there is something else in them that is bothering you, like maybe dairy or soy? (I don't know particularly if there is dairy or soy in them, just guessing)

Stax are well known (or seems like it around here) to have CC problems with milk.

I've had no reaction to Stax, and then reacted to the next tube I bought. I think they have some on-again off-again cc issues.

And I'm not lactose or soy intolerant. I do mean gluten CC.

Me, too ----

seems to be random issues with Stax....I have no other allergens except gluten

Plain baked lays, though, are always ok for me.

Lister-

Sorry about your symptoms to the chips! As I wrote in your other thread...I think maybe you need to look at your whole diet....and how long you've been gluten-free. Another idea is to start a journal where everyday you write down what you eat and any symptoms you experience--even seemingly insignificant ones. This is a great tool for finding foods or products that may bother you. Maybe you need to go back to the basics--whole, more plain foods and give yourself time to heal...

I also wonder if Lay's gives people problems simply b/c they are chips--and even though they aren't as bad, they still have a lot of grease and oil in them... Greasy foods like chips always get my stomach gurgling and churning/gassy...

Wouldn't you be better off with regular Lays vs Stax? I buy regular Lays and there are only a few ingredients: potatoes, salt, oil (and whatever flavour) but even the plain Stax have 8000 ingredients. Maybe it's one of those causing the problem.

I had Lays Stax the first time with no problems at all. The second time I had them I got sick. I had both the plain each time. I just stay away from them now. I try to only eat Utz when I can, they specifically say gluten free now on the bag

I used to get d from chips... then I discovered that I should avoid all nightshades, which includes potatoes. :( Goodbye chips... I think I had a couple "glutenings" that weren't due to gluten after all before I figured this out.

Even if it's 100% absolutely gluten-free, there's a chance that one of the many weird-o sounding ingredients in those just doesn't make you feel good. Just b/c it's marketed as food doesn't mean it's not toxic to your body :ph34r:

My son has never reacted to stax, andhe eats way to much of them. Still with any mass produced product there is always a risk of CC, reguardless of calims.

There's also a risk of dangerous additives, preservatives, toxins, chemicals, artificial flavors, artifical colors, hydrogenated oils and all sorts of other stuff that's simply just not meant to be digested by the human body, even if it is completely gluten-free. I'm not neccessarily just talking about Lays Stax. I just think people like us with weaker digestive systems need to be extra careful about this stuff. Nature provides us with food. Food companies provide us with poison. Sorry - I couldn't help it. I think it's something people need to take into consideration...

I love the natural line they have. The fewer ingredients they have the better. There is so much crap they put in our food. Occasionally I will have the Lays Staxx and have had no problem with them.

I eat potato chips regularly, so I know this is not a nightshade problem. I somehow got glutened today and am trying to figure out where. The only questionable food was Lays Stax KC Masterpiece flavor. I know Lays says they're gluten-free, but they say modified food starch on the container.

I guess it could also be a cc issue in my kitchen, but I am very careful and never set anything on the counter directly. The only thing my son and I could come up with is the dish towel being contaminated and me eating off a dish dried with it.

So, it's one of those two things. What do you think? I usually only eat plain potato chips, but I ate some of these that my daughter had (she's gluten free, but doesn't have digestive symptoms).

Hi Carla--I am a potato chip eater, too! I eat the Lay's Natural line and the Kettle Cooked all the time. Never a problem. I tried the Stax a few months ago, after learning they were made on dedicated lines. I bought the regular (plain) flavor, and got sick from them. I'm not sure why--possibly all of the ingredients like soy or CC from dairy? I did think it was a little odd that I never react to the ones made on shared lines, but did to the dedicated ones :blink:

I tried them for the same reason. I don't have a problem with soy or dairy. I ate the plain several times, and they were fine. But something got me today. I'm blaming the chips!

I've also never had the problem with the natural line.

Thanks for responding!
