    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

Sorry for all the questions lately, but I am in a new place with new food to try! I've seen a lot of old dutch chips around here and I wondered if anyone has had problems with them. I saw that they have gluten-free list on their website, but I'm not sure if they share lines with gluten foods like lays.

I haven't tried them yet because I am afraid of a reaction.

But, I just ate a large bag of Lays Natural plain potato chips this weekend with no troubles at all. I react to Lays Stax, so I was very pleased to find out that I do not react to the Natural product line. I am very sensitive too.

Felidae--I love the Lay's Natural line, too! I react very easily, and have had no problems with them. I have reacted to the Stax, though, for some reason. Think it might be dairy CC.

Carrie--You could never ask too many questions! I've never heard of those chips, maybe they're not available here--or ay least in NJ. Hope the rest of the move is going smoothly :)

Actually, I only tried them because I read one of your posts saying that you could eat them. LOL

Old Dutch is a Canadian brand.

Yes, I have had problems with Old Dutch. Try "Hardbite" It's made in BC and they don't have gluten in the factory. A few of the bigger stores carry them, like "Save on Foods"

You might want to try their web site to see if there is dairy in it, but I don't think there is. I love the plain ones, I haven't tried the flavoured ones as I'm not a fan on flavoured chips.

Carrie, there aren't any Save-On-Foods in NW Calgary, but there might be one in the SW, can't remember where, or I think Extra Foods might be part of the Pattison empire. I've never seen Hardbite at Safeway.

The website is www.homegrownfoods.com and it lists the Calgary stores where they are sold.

Thanks everyone! I just found out that you can buy hardbite at Sobey's and Co-op in Calgary. I will have to try some :)

That's funny, I don't remember that, but I may have just looked old dutch up on the internet and saw that some flavours are gluten-free. I haven't tried them yet because I am afraid of cross contamination.

I haven't tried them yet, but I would like to try them. I haven't been able to find them here yet in Calgary. I think the co-op may have them though.

No, this was in response to someone else who tried Lays Naturals. Sorry for the confusion. I haven't tried Old Dutch.

There are gluten-free tortilla chips called Que Pasa. Canadian made and their website says gluten-free, but I'm not sure about dairy cc.

Ok, I had a weird sleep last last, I felt werid today, I had a chicken pox like spot on my leg, and my leg was itchy where it usually is when I get into gluten, which tells me that I had some gluten. Those two things are enough for me to guess that the old dutch chips are contaminated. The amount of gluten in their chips must be quite small because I didn't get a severe reaction. Regardless, I won't be eating anymore of their chips.

I will look into the Que Pasa chips. I really want safe chips to eat!
