Although Frito Lay does not add gluten in SOME of their products, they do not guarantee that they are safe from cross contamination. A possible CYA statement. But, through the years that I have been here, I have heard numerous accounts of sensitive people with Celiac becoming ill with their non-gluten products.

Guess you need to use the "try and see" approach. Everyone is different. I have never had a problem. with Lays Products. Lay's Staxx are produced on a dedicated line. They might be a better avenue.

I tried eating Lay's chips and Fritos - the ingredient list does not contain gluten, true, but I got sick every time I tried. Must be cross-contamination from the factories.

I have had the lays and fritos and do not ever have a problem with it. I must be lucky.

Lays chips, with the exception of the Stax line, are produced on shared lines with gluten containing products. They state that they clean thoroughly between batches, but that some residue may remain.

Personally, for me it's hit or miss with them so I stick with the Stax.

"lays salted is never tested for Gluten Free claim, however we are not adding gluten though our seasoning or oil. Our ingredients are natural potatoes, edible vegetable oil and pure salt".

this is from thier division located in Saudia Arabia..i live in the middle east..gluten-free diet is new phenomena in this region and products manufatured locally do not carry a lot of allergy info....pls help......

You may try contacting Pepsico or Frito Lay North America and see if they can clarify the response. I think they are telling you they are gluten-free.

Another idea you might try (but it is a lot of trouble to go to) is to make your own potato chips.

If you have a mandoline, you can slice them really thin and then use a deep fryer to get a kind of chip. They are not the same crispy light things that come in a bag, but at least you don't have to worry about gluten.

You can spice them too or even use different kinds of potatoes-- even sweet potatoes!

But if you have abunch of little kids, I can definitely see why you would want to go with the bags.
