Trouble W/lay's Plain Chips?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I never have, I have been gluten free for 7 1/2 years and have never had trouble with Lay's plain. Many members say the safe Lay's chips are only made in Plano, Texas, that is stated on the bag and I have noticed since then, any bag I ever have is from Plano Texas, so maybe that is why I have not been glutened by them. I have never seen any from anywhere else though, so I do not know how true this is either! You will receive many different answers, I'm sure.

Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. Because sometimes I do I avoid them as I don't like playing roulette.

I have also always heard that the Plano plant products are the only safe ones. To my knowledge I have only seen the Plano products but googling made me think that there are more plants.

I never eat Lay's, so I can't speak from personal experience. However, I have read that Lay's are notorious for MSG in their products. My advice would be to select such products which list the ingredients as potatoes, oil, and salt, rather than a long list of weird things you cannot pronounce. If the plain chips are free of such additives, then it may be CC, or perhaps a sensitivity to potatoes, nightshades, or maybe the type of oil used.

I used them once, and didn't feel too great afterwards, it was not the full glutening feeling but it was like my stomach was a touchy. I never tried them again. Some members on here have problems others do not. It is hit or miss.

I've had problems with Lays; it took me months to figure it out, since the ingredients are just potatoes, oil and salt. Lays apparently has CC problems. I won't eat them.

(MSG is used in the flavored chips, not the plain ones).

I have never had any problems eating Lays plain chips. I read alot of things on these boards that people say bother them and the things they list never bother me i find it strange that it does some people and not others, i think it maybe other things than gluten that bothers them also, me...i have celiac, no other food allergies this maybe why.

It's reasonable to believe it's because of gluten or cc...but it could be something else. I haven't had a glutening in a long time, and i do eat alot of these foods people ask about. ..Quaker rice cakes..lays chips...amys...theres alot more i cant think of now. I know sometimes i just get a regular tummy ache..it isn't always gluten..but it is the first thing that comes to mind.

Never looked to see what plant mine are manufactured in....

have a small issue but I think its more oil related than anything else as I also get the same thing when I make food at home I try only to eat a handful and have no problems however if I eat more, the problem increases. Wouldn't call it gluten symptoms but more of a gut ache??????

People's sensitivity really can vary, some people will react to the tiniest amount of cc, others will need a bit more gluten before their immune system wakes up. That's why with some products it's a question of try it and see.

We eat the Lays plain chips with probably too much regularity :lol: and we have never reacted to them. My son and I are very sensitive to the smallest amount of gluten, and our antibodies are in the negative range. While I don't disbelieve that some have CC experiences with them, that has never been our experience.

In the beginning after going gluten-free I did and sometimes I do now when I over indulge. Could it be the fat content? My understanding is that you digestive system has to work so much harder to digest fat b/c things are working right (is that technical enough---argh)

Anyway, do other high fat content thinks bother you?

I don't eat the plain Lay's simply because I like the Ruffles better. Ruffles have ridges :rolleyes:. I also eat plain Fritos, Tostitos (for making nachos and dipping queso), and Cheetos. Haven't ever had a problem.

There's no MSG or preservatives in the Ruffles, Fritos, or Tostitos. Even if there was (which there is in the Cheeto Puffs), it doesn't bother me. MSG, preservatives, and those ingredients with the long names are not gluten. Maybe they're bad for you, maybe not. If they don't digest well for you, I certainly wouldn't eat them. Chips fried in oil with all that salt aren't exactly health food.

If I didn't have Celiac, I'd be eating a big 'ol greasy double cheeseburger. Or some pizza, fried chicken, fried fish, doughnuts, or any of many unhealthy foods. So please, leave me with some vestige of a vice so that I can thumb my nose at the universe and have my few guilty pleasures. :D

best regards, lm

    Hi, Thanks for your answer! Unfortunately I have to follow the MAOI diet for as long as I'm taking the MAOI, so essentially nobody's going to be inviting me round to dinner from now on… This is a bit of a shock. I don't really have any clear-cut symptoms that I would've considered worth going to the GP about. I mean I'm always tired and I have a bit of IBS and so on but generally I put that down to the other things wrong with me and the medication I have to take for them (mostly the bi
    Thanks Posterboy, that was interesting information.  I believe that I had read something elsewhere about tetracycline, at least, being used instead of, or along with, Dapsone for severe or refractory cases of DH. Unfortunately, even if I had medical insurance (which I do not), and had a regular doctor who was even willing to recognize and accept my condition for what it is, I don't know what kind of luck I would have in persuading that hypothetical doctor to give me a particular and non-sta
