"gluten Free" Kettle Chips Always Get Me...

What gives ? The bag says gluten free but my intestinal tract says otherwise !

 

A few months ago I tried the (gluten free) BBQ flavor and next thing I knew I had headaches & gut cramps...ugh, just let me lie down & leave me alone.

 

So, I'm in Costco the other day and I see the baked plain Kettle chips and the bag says gluten free...so I think, well maybe it was something else or maybe it was the full fat chips. I so wanted to believe ! Anyway, I had a small bowl each of the last 3 nights and headaches and such resumed. Ok, so I'm a little slow, the reactions were mild enough but as I look back I see I wasn't good company the last 3 nights and my tummy has been grumpy...and I've taken a lot of Tylenol. This am it has hit me full force.

 

So...I'm thinking - either I'm really sensitive or the term "gluten free" is pretty loosely defined. Or Kettle chips just suck... <_<

 

Anyone else have a similar experience with Kettle chips or other so called gluten-free products ? I know when I was in England last year I got hit by some of the "Free From" products...it was only after I was back home that I found out the level of tolerance (ppm of allowable gluten) was higher there.

me too! 

both me and my son definitely react to Kettle chips. I thought it was just the sour cream and onion, but also the plain.

does anyone have any recommendation for safe potato chips from Trader Joe's (particularly in the crisp Kettle chip or Cape Cod chip style?)

I would suggest frying your own. That is what i am gonna do. With full fledge coconut oil and fryer i am gonna make my own tater chips. Let them soak to get off the starch so they wont create those chemicals. Acrylamide i think it is called.
