Yellow Corn Tortilla Chips - Cross Contamination Risk?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

The Gluten Free Food list at Whole Foods Market includes their 365 Brand White and Blue Tortilla Chips but not the Yellow Tortilla Chips or Strips.

Does anyone know if the Yellow Tortilla Chips or Strips are different in some way and not Gluten Free?

The ingredients on the label look fine and the facility warning on the Organic Yellow Corn Tortilla Strips only mentions Milk and Soy.

I can't imagine why the Yellow corn would be different unless there is a cross contamination risk.

I actually bought the strips last week and I didn't have a problem with them. I didn't check their list, just the ingredients.

I haven't tried the Whole Foods chips. The Mission brand ones are available everywhere and probably for less money. Here is a link to their allergen info:

Thanks all for the comments and help.

One remaining question is whether corn can be contaminated in transportation or storage. The same facilities could have been used for wheat, rye, or barley.

I believe transportation and storage is the main issue with oats.

Here is an interesting link in that regard. Note that wheat may contain a small percentage of corn!
