May Have Just Eaten Gluten :p

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I just ate two utz chips. They have always said gluten free on the back. I always read the back of things before I eat them to make sure the ingredients haven't changed. This is literally the second time I've ever eaten a food without checking the back of the package first. I'm SO SCARED right now because after I ate two chips, I looked at the back and it said "may be processed on equipment that also processes wheat" I just like started crying. I don't know what to do, I don't want to get sick. WHAT DO I DO!!?!??? If I do get sick, what do you find helps you even the littlest bit? And I'm hoping I will be ok, because it said it "may" be processed on the same line as gluten, and I'm sure they clean the lines often do what are your thoughts On that? Plus I only ate two chips....I would never ever have eaten these if I read the back.

Don't panic.

Realistically, a lot of food is processed on shared wheat lines - food you may eat daily. This is a standard CYA line. Yes, some manufacturers are better at preventing cc than others. Standard procedure is to clean equipment between runs - so they would have cleaned it before making the gluten-free product.

If you are super sensitive, you may have an increased chance of reaction; however, chances are you will be fine.

Take some digestive enzymes and probiotics to help you feel better, and to help your system if there was any cc.

My kitchen was a gluten-free facility until a kid walked thru w/ a KitKat.

All my silverware used to touch gluten all the time.

I'd bet you didn't get glutened.

Don't panic. I've eaten shared lines chips without any problem at all. You're probably feeling worse from freaking out than you would from a tiny trace of gluten and it's unlikely there is any gluten at all. Relax, have a nice, soothing cup of tea and don't worry.

Utz is the brand of chips I always buy and I've never had a problem with them. Wish I could contain myself to having just two chips! I just get the plain chips though and my bag does not have the "may be processed on equipment that also processes wheat" statement on the back. What kind of Utz chips did you buy?

Are you feeling okay this morning?

I bought the utz tortilla chips.i just bought the exact same kind four days ago and it clearly said gluten free on the back! Now it has the "may be ..." statement.

So far, I'm feeling no worse than a normal day. Usually when im glistened (it's only happened twice but both times a stomach bug was going around so it was hard to tell what was from what) I have excruciating stomach pain within a couple hours but I slept through the night and no pain today do I'm hoping I will be ok. And also hoping there is no damage to my villi even though I didn't have an outward reaction.

Most people who have celiac eat food that has either that same warning or that has been processed on the same lines. I wouldn't worry.

Just called the company.thry said that they just changed plants, and wheat products are now processed on the same line. But they sanitize between each run.so I wouldn't normaly eat them just out of cautiousness but having accidentally eaten a couple I believe I willbe ok.:)
