Kettle Chips

Just need to start out by saying that I LOVE Kettle Chips!

Anyway, I live in Europe, where my local supermarket stocks Kettle Chips - but only in the Balsamic Vinegar and the Sea Salt flavors. I've noticed that the labels clearly state GLUTEN FREE.

I'm back in the U.S. right now for the holidays and headed out to Whole Foods last night and fell upon the potato chips section with about a zillion different flavors of Kettle Chips! Unfortunately, none of the bags have the "gluten-free" label on them! I went to their website and it says that the chips are made in a facility that also handles wheat...anyone have any nasty reactions? I just bought the Yogurt & Green Onion flavor and I'm hoping to be able to eat it...

On another note, I was meeting up with a friend in Paris and found myself near another supermarket that has an even bigger stock of Kettle Chips than my local supermarket....that is, they have many more flavors besides the Balsamic Vinegar and the Sea Salt (Black Pepper, Tomato Salsa, Cheese & Onion, etc) and noticed that while all of the bags are labeled "gluten-free", (and some of them are listed "Safe for Coeliacs") some of the ingredients listed include "wheat starch"! I was going to buy a couple of the other flavors to try them out, but hesitated when I saw the wheat starch listing. Don't know if anyone (from the UK, maybe?) has tried any of these other flavors and had any problems?

I am not from the UK, so I can't help you there, but I can tell you that the Salt & Pepper ones glutened us, big time! It was a nasty glutening. The ingredients read clean, so it must have been a "shared line" type of contamination or something. We are very, very sensitive to even the tiniest amounts.

Hmmm. That's kind of a bummer....I wonder why the Kettle Chips in Europe are marked as gluten free, but the US ones aren't??

Oh, well. I decided it was too risky to eat the yogurt and green onion chips, so I gave them to my husband instead (who loved them). :(

@Alaskaguy With regard to the timing, I think that everyone is a bit different! I used to have a shorter time to onset when I was first diagnosed (within 24h). As time has gone on, and I've glutened myself less and less, I have noticed that the time gets a bit longer.  Recent history seems to matter a bit too - if I've been glutened recently and then get glutened again, the rash will show up faster on the second round. For example, in the last 3 weeks I got slightly glutened by inadvertent
