Here is the current Lays gluten-free list. Lays does produce these chips on shared lines, but they clean between runs. If you want a Lays product that is produced in a gluten-free facility, that would be the Lays Stax.

Hope this helps.

I have been CC'd too many times by Lay's products to even want to try these. For me it is like playing roulette with my body, sometimes their products are fine but often they 'get' me. I do occasionally have the Stax though and haven't had a problem.

Ditto for me. I do now eat the plain Stax without problems.

Lays have been my sanity. In the two months I've had Celiac I've gone through about seven or eight bags...

We also avoid Lay's Products in my household. My son's "episodes" always seemed to correlate to eating a Lay's product. My son got sick after eating barbecue stax, but it was probably from all the junk they put in them. <_<

I noticed on the ingredients that it say monosodium Glutamate. I thought this was gluten?? It says on the usafe list that its safe in the US...I am from BC, so are they safe or not here??

Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is not gluten, however many people are still allergic to it. Symptoms of MSG sensitivity include headache, or a general feeling of stomach upset.

A reaction from Baked Lays could actually have nothing to do with gluten..I LOVED their chedder and sour cream baked lays chips until I ate too many...and the Olestra in the chips actually does give you a gluten reaction....I've heard of some people having CC issues and others are fine...but with Baked Lays this was the problem for me!

Hi,

The site says that they have a gluten-free line, NOT facility. I tried calling for clarification, because it says STAXs are gluten free but then "all products are produced on the same line...." which is confusing because they just said STAX was produced on its own line. How do they package the STAX? How do they ensure that STAX don't come in contact with other gluten-containing products or packaging??? If anyone has more info please share with the group! I don't dare try any of these until I have more information. Since I never really react to a product with gluten, I can't rely on my body to tell me (which in general is probably not the best way to go). I don't want to get cancer later or die sooner than my non-celiac peers, so I don't take chances - with lack of information or trust of the source, I err on the side of caution.

Here is the text from the site:

"*Our LAY�S� STAX� chips (all flavors) are made on gluten free lines, thus all LAY�S� STAX� products are free of gluten.

*The above products do not contain gluten; however, they are produced on the same line as our products that do contain gluten. Although the lines are washed between batches, a slight residue may remain on the lines. Individuals who are extremely sensitive may be affected.

All Frito-Lay products are labeled accurately with the most current ingredient information. Frito-Lay makes every effort to maintain this list; however, since the ingredients in our snacks are subject to change at any time, we recommend that you check the label on a specific product for the most current and accurate nutritional information. If you need assistance, please contact Frito-Lay Consumer Affairs toll-free at 1-800-352-4477 Monday through Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Central Standard Time."

    • Learn more about testing for celiac disease here: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You do have to be on a gluten diet for ANY of the celiac tests (blood and biopsy) to work.  While the endoscopy (with biopsies) can reveal villi damage, many other things besides celiac disease can cause villi damage too: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-else-can-cause-damage-to-the-small-intestine-other-than-celiac-disease/ So, both the blood test and endoscopy are usually ordered.  There are some exceptions, but those are not common.  
    • Exactly what are your allergy symptoms?  Were they IgG or IgE?  Allergy testing as a whole is not super accurate -- especially the IgG.  Were you on any H1 or H2 antihistamines for the last five days  when you were tested?   As far as celiac testing, four days without consuming gluten probably would not impact testing.  
    • I've been seeing my dr for a few weeks now about my stomach issues. We've ruled out the gallbladder and h-pylori and today I had the celiac blood tests done. From the reading I've done the past two days, it seems to me that it's highly likely that I have it. I've had digestive issues for years, but they've gotten progressively worse over the past 6 months or so. Pain and nausea when eating, bloat, eternal constipation, dh rash, at it's worse, tight cramp-like pain in a fist under my sternum, radiating through my back and around my right side keeping me up at night. Also heartburn/reflux and trouble swallowing, etc. 

      Anyway, about 2 months ago, I needed a change. I didn't go to the dr immediately because it seemed pointless. (I've mentioned stomach ache when eating to drs before and been blown off.) So, I started the Whole30 elimination diet (takes out soy, grains, dairy, peanuts, and leaves you basically eating meat & veggies). Figured it would show me what I needed to take out of my diet and hopefully feel better. It worked- I felt great! And it seems that grains and gluten are my biggest offenders. But, now I've been off gluten prior to celiac testing. It's been 7 weeks. After 4 weeks I tested steal cut oats, that I later found out were probably glutened. And then nothing until yesterday. Yesterday I had 2 pieces of bread and a muffin and today I had two pieces of bread and then the blood test. Is this going to be enough to show up on the tests? My dr said that it would probably show up, since I had some yesterday and today and was currently having symptoms. But, google seems to say that I should be glutened for 2 wks straight before testing. Has anyone tested positive after just a little gluten? If it's negative should I insist on doing it again after weeks back on gluten? I feel awful, but do want clear answers. Obviously, gluten's not going to be a part of my life any more either way. 
    • So just to clarify  had not consumed any gluten for about 4 days before testing. I was assured by my allergist that it wouldn't affect the test. But what was alarming was that she retested my food allergies (my most recent reaction was two weeks ago) and every food allergy I have came back negative. I don't understand how that is possible. These food allergies developed when I was 20 and I am almost 24 now.
    • Thanks! You too! I have learned from this experience to take charge of my own health. It's nice at least that we can try the gluten-free treatment without a firm diagnosis or a doctor confirming the disease. I've also felt some of the gluten withdrawal symptoms, and my stomach pain ebbs and flows, but I'm determined to stick with the gluten-free diet to see what a difference it makes. Gemini, thank you! This was really validating and useful for me to hear. I've felt so confused through this process and just want some answers. If the biopsy results do come back negative, I'm going to follow your advice and do the gluten-free diet with repeat blood testing after a while. If they come back positive, well, then I'll have my answer. I'm supposed to get them back next week.
