Lay's Kc Masterpiece Potato Chips

Recommended Posts

I am pretty sure, no almost positive, that I just got glutened by a small bag of these chips. I researched them on the web before buying them from the vending machine and read that they're processed on a line that's washed between products, so there's a risk for cc, but Lay's is touting them as gluten-free. I was a little dismayed to see that pesky "natural flavors" ingredient, but their claim is that these are gluten-free and I always thought they were a good company. I've never had any problem with the occasional Cheetos or plain Lay's urges, but I definitely won't by buying the KC masterpiece chips again.

They are going to do away with that natural flavors thing once the labeling laws go into effect in 2008, aren't they? Or am I just being optimistic? Seems that I read that somewhere.

Anyway, buyer beware! :(

There are several people on this board that have had cc issues with Frito-Lay products. I think your gut is your best guide, if they make you sick do not eat them again! I hope you feel better soon.

My son reacts to these - even before we knew he was gluten intolerant. I thought it was the large amount of MSG in them. I don't trust anything with that many ingredients in it.

Diagnosed with Minimal Change Nephrotic Syndrome in 2003. Discovered that going completely gluten-free put me in remission.

It could be the long ingredient list causing the stomach upset. I don't do well with flavored chips, even ones I know are gluten-free (like Lays Stax, which are made in a gluten-free facility). For me, it's the flavoring, not the gluten. I just buy plain chips. :)

Good advice. I wish I had read this a week ago, however, before my son and I both got sick on Lays Stacks Ranch flavored. That's what I get when I try to give him something a little different to jazz up his lunch. Now I'm back to not trusting products again.

I never buy chips as am not allowed to have them in the house. Could EASILY eat a whole bag in one sitting. :ph34r: But, I do eat about 1/4 a bag of KC Masterpiece barbecue chips whenever I'm at my mom's (she is under strict instruction to take bag away from me after a certain amount), and have never had a problem.....and this is about the ONLY processed food I eat, other than occasional Hershey's or M&M's.

One week later report: I'm fairly certain that I got glutened and probably from cc. The poops don't lie!!

I can't buy my own chips for the same reason that DingoGirl doesn't, the whole bag would be gone, even if I bought little bags and kept them at home...same for a box of Mary's Gone Crackers, they'd be gone inside a very short week. Yesterday I snarfed almost a whole box of Nut Thins. I eat very little processed food when I'm not like this, so I'll have to figure something out regarding the vending machine at work. If they had plain Lay's all the time, I'd be happy, but they faithfully stock Cheetos and hardly ever plain Lay's. And I'm allegedly allergic to corn via skin test, so probably shouldn't even be doing the Cheetos. Along with the most excellent idea that I read somewhere here about a fast-food place that is dedicated gluten-free, we need those dedicated gluten-free vending machines. Workers of the gluten-free world, unite! :D

Thanks for understanding, btw. ;)

I'm addicted to crunchy food. I eat a whole lot of veggies. Celery and carrots can only go so far...

I got glutened last month by Lay's Ruffles chips. The ingredients listed on the package were fine, so I assumed it was cc, too. I switched to Wise chips and haven't had any problems so far.

It is discouraging when you're so conscientious about reading ingreadients, but there's nothing you can really do except switch to another product.
