Andy Capp's Hot Fries?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Just wondered if anyone knows if Andy Capp's hot fries are gluten free. I know that they used to contain hydrolyzed wheat gluten , but while I was at the grocery store today, I decided to read the ingredients label out of curiosity, and I didn't see any wheat ingredients listed. The label now says "contains milk". So..does anyone know if these are safe now?

Hello David,

Thank you for your email regarding our ANDY CAPP'S Cheddar Fries. This product does not contain wheat but has not been tested to validate that it is gluten free.

We understand how important it is for people who have been medically diagnosed with gluten sensitivity to obtain accurate information about our food to help plan their meals and diets. We continue to look for ways to meet the dietary needs of our consumers.

Since wheat is a major food allergen, if it is used in the product, it will be listed in the "contains" statement following the ingredients list. The flour used in many of our products is wheat flour, and you should avoid these products if you have gluten sensitivities. If any ingredient in the product includes rye or barley, it will be listed in parentheses immediately following the ingredient. Oats do not contain gluten, but they frequently have been exposed to wheat or barley and are not recommended for celiac patients. If Natural Flavors, Artificial Flavors, or Spices listed in the ingredients list contain wheat, rye or barley, these ingredients will be listed in parenthesis immediately following the ingredient. Some fermented or distilled products such as vinegar may be derived from wheat. Most of the vinegar in our products is distilled, and through the distilling process protein gluten is removed.

The following brands are validated as gluten-free with gluten-free printed on their labels:
