Baked Lays Potato Chips - Are They Gluten Free?

Recommended Posts

Are Baked Lays potato chips gluten free? And what about the Baked Scoops? We eat those a lot in our house since I am on Weight Watchers, but my daughter was just recently diagnosed with Celiacs so I wanted to be sure she could have the Baked Lays products. Thanks!!!


May 2007 - Emily went dairy free

April 2008 - took her back to pedi - she was getting worse

April 24, 2008 - first consult with Pedi gastro specialist

May 5, 2008 - doctor's office called with blood test results - Celiac levels highly elevated

June 9, 2008 - Emily's endoscopy

June 11, 2008 - doctor's office called with Emily's Celiac diagnoses, she has it

So now our new life begins, and hopefully that will be a happier, healthier life for her! I am glad I followed that little maternal instinct telling me something wasn't right!

Here's my little sweetheart:

There is a lot of talk on the Forum about chips , I read that someone posted I can't find a chips that works. I have the same problem. So I suggest that you try Gluten Free Pretzil sticks from Glutino. They sell them on line I guess and at Whole Foods. They replace the craving for chips , and I have no trouble with them . Oh yeh they taste Good :D

The only safe Lays chip is the original (not flavored) Stax. Everything else seems to be subject to cross-contamination. You might luck out and eat a bag or two without problems and then get really sick on the next one. Original Stax are produced on dedicated equipment.

Above is the Frito Lay link -- the first question is about gluten. Look at the very bottom of the page:

I've been OK with their Wavy and Ruffles (don't know if this is luck or the cross-contamination is so slight that it doesn't bother me etc.), but I was eating Cheetos for about a week and I was so sick for that week, go figure. Ever since not eating Cheetos again I have felt great, so no more Cheetos for me. Just another one of those gotta try it and see how you do things I guess.

In the year and a half since I've been diagnosed I haven't had a problem with any Frito Lay product. Of course I only eat the ones that don't contain wheat in the ingredients.

I make my own potato chips now, it's fairly simple to do and they taste better than any store bought chips

Me too. I practically live on the scoops with pace picante sauce. I am very sensitive and haven't had a problem but I only buy the scoops, stax, and sometimes the big frito's. For other chips, I haven't had a problem with the regular cape cod potato chips.

This is true. While I've never had a problem with the regular potato chips, Cheetos, or Fritos, I did buy a bag of Baked Lays the other day and got sick. When I finished the bag a week later (wanting to double check if that was it), I did have a reaction but only a weak reaction (i.e., just a few bumps on my elbow instead of bumps all over my feet and rump). So I don't know what that means, but if you're very sensitive, I wouldn't risk it.

We have followed the Frito-Lay list on their site (not just the Lays Stax) and have not had a problem so far (been over a year for us). For anyone who likes Cheetos, we have switched to Robert's Gourmet Tings. They are like Cheetos without the powdered cheese coating. They are run on a shared line, but the ingredient list is much shorter and does not include MSG. I have found them at Whole Foods and at Kroger.
