Glutened By Lay's Sour Cream And Onion

16 posts in this topic

My dd (6) just had gluten diarrhea after eating Lay's Sour Cream & Onion Potato Chips. I see on their website that they are gluten-free. They also have MSG and I was lax in reading the label or I would not have purchased them. But I'm confused about her reaction. It really seemed like gluten D accompanied by stomach pain. Anyone else???

Many members here have said that they react poorly to Frito/Lays products. Only Lays Staxx are producted on dedicated lines and are not subject to possible cross contaimination.

Hope you daughter recovers quickly.

Thanks, that's got to be it. I try to buy Staxx but they are hard to find here and I thought these would be OK. :( Only bright side, she recognized right away what happened and won't eat them again. It is nice when they can see it so clearly even at only age 6!

I see from your information that both of your daughters are dairy free...and sour cream and onion chips are definately not dairy free...maybe that could be why she reacted badly?

Well...... I have the hardest time with dairy free since I have trouble finding things this picky eater (my 6 yr old) wants to eat and I tend to give in sometimes with the dairy since we have to be so strict with the gluten. She is not allergic to dairy like my other daughter so I think this makes me a little more lax.

That said, you could be right. I will have to pay more attention to whether any other dairy I may give her causes a reaction. The dairy she sometimes ends up with is Parm Cheese, gluten free pizza at b-day parties and the occasional sour cream and onion chips.

Thanks!

I was overjoyed when I saw the gluten-free list they put out. Until I got sick almost everything I ate them. I won't touch their products any longer. The CC issues are just way to frequent.

That's unfortunate. It's certainly more difficult when one has multiple intolerances.

I've recently eaten those sour cream & onion lay's several times with no problems. But I also can eat just about any frito lay product without wheat listed on the label. Never experienced any cross-contamination.

best regards, lm

My son also reacts to Lay's products. I will only give him Lay's Staxx. They are hard to find in my area too so when the one store that carries them has them in stock I buy 10 of them.

I can't do the Staxx because of the soy. They just don't like me. I also get sick every time I eat Lay's Classic. I've never gotten sick from Lay's Natural. I can't really tell the difference between the Classic and Natural except the price! The Natural is about $4 a bag.

I wouldn't touch anything from Lay's with a 10-foot pole except the Staxx.

They say the products are Gluten Free, but at the bottom is the statement:

"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. "

No thanks!! Reminds me of the recent Whole Foods chicken nugget debacle.

I was glutened last time I had Lay's Classic, before that no problem. I'm crossing those off my list. Sigh...

I LOVE the Staxx and rely upon them for munchies. Have had no problem with them. Best place to

get them at best price is Walmart in the chip aisle, usally top shelf, only $1.00 as compared to $1.69 at other grocery stores. I find them at the regular Walmart....haven't been to a superWalmart that

has all of the groceries. Also I have never had a problem at all with Fritos and I appear to be VERY

sensitive. Just thought I'd mention them.

Had a very typical reaction after eating Lay's Sour Cream and Onion Chips. Just did the EZ-Gluten ELISA test on them, and sure enough, they are positive for gluten. (test threshold is 10ppm). Thanks a lot, Lay's, for not mentioning anything about shared equipment or wheat on the package.

This is why it is vital to research every product or company. Lays has two separate lists of products on their website which is easily found by googling "lays gluten free" and is what I do every time I have a hankering for a chip. This page explains that the gluten free products are tested, while the products not containing gluten ingredients may be run on the same lines and may or may not be subject to CC. This is the link to that page if it helps. http://www.fritolay.com/your-health/us-products-not-containing-gluten-ingredients.html

 

There is no disclosure policy for shared lines and I am willing to bet that if you eat chips you eat other processed foods. You almost certainly eat food all the time that is made on shared lines without incident. It is not fair to demonize a company who makes this information so easily accessible to us when so many more make us jump through nightmarish hoops to find out if a food is safe. They're pretty clear that those chips may contain gluten due to the processing, and they did. I am sorry that you aren't feeling well but it is hardly Lays fault.

slightly unrelated, but I recently bought a microwave potato chip maker. It is a silicon tray with holes. You slice the potatoes with the mandoline that comes with it then microwave them on the tray for 4-5 min. Makes surprisingly good chips! You can flavor them as you please. I am always worried about getting sick from manufactured ones. These would be fun for kids to make as well. Just keep them away from the mandoline.

    • You might be like me and need to get a vitamin and mineral panel blood test.  And make sure it includes iron.   We both might be deficient in certain vitamins/minerals.  My medicals bills have been so high I've put it off and just started taking a multivitamin instead.  But I'm not sure it has it in what I really might be deficient.   So I'm going to spend more money and get a vitamin and mineral panel blood test. Even at my age I have high metabolism.   Gluten free meals only fill me up for 2-3 hours so I have a backpack with me everday and have gluten free snacks to hold me over.   My weight went from 168 to 161 my first month gluten free.  But it seems to have stabilized and might be going back up again a little.  I'm in the start of my 3rd mo. being/trying to be gluten free.   If I am hungry for too long I kinda get light headed and dizzy so I bring gluten-free snakes with me. I drank a bottle of Ensure + my first month to help keep weight on but it didn't seems to agree with my stomach.   It might of been my body trying to adjust to the new gluten free diet that caused that issue.  
    • Thanks, cyclinglady.   That's encouraging to know that people can have a relatively normal life with Crohn's.   I have a co-worker whose in his 50s with Crohn's.  I understand he's had it most of his life.  Lots of surgeries, iron infusions and ongoing pain.   My GI appointment isn't for another three weeks.   I had an abdominal CT scan 9 years ago for similar issues and it was clean.   I'm fairly old for Crohn's --I'm in my mid 40s-- and understand that it mostly affects people in their teens and 20s.  But, there are always those outliers. Given that both my brother and his son have Celiac...I'm hoping(?) for the less destructive disease.   
    •  Sounds like gluten might have snuck back into your diet, either a condiment, spice, a contaminated pot, utensil, bowl, or cup. Is your whole house gluten-free? Are you still fixing gluten meals for the kids? Once you go completely gluten free after the first few months many become hyper sensitive to gluten, where as a tiny amount of CC throws it all off the cliff like all hell broke loose in your guts. Double check back over everything. Read the 101, clean out and double check everything, I found freezer paper/butcher paper to make a nice clean work area and clean up a breeze, foil line pans etc. Cheap starts with cookware are to use microwave cook ware from nordicware, crock pot liners, and disposable or new utensils/cookware. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ Try keeping a food diary with a list of everything your eating, include every condiment/spice etc. Try to find a common denominator, Rotate your meals using different foods, cuisines, and source that are gluten-free. You might find some other foods that offend your gut, as many of us also find or develop other intolerance in the first few months.
    • Hi! I was officially diagnosed a couple of months ago now but I have been gluten free for about 4 months since my endoscopy. However, in the last month I have noticed some worrying post diagnosis and treatment symptoms. My appetite has shrunk enormously. I used to be able to eat bowls and bowls of food and still be hungry, I could consume food even when full and I was constantly snacking. I understand over eating is a big part of celiac disease before going on a gluten free diet but food is such a huge part of my lifestyle. This last month I feel as though I have lost myself a bit as huge parts of my character like my love for food, huge appetite and my non fussy nature have all been turned upside down. I could easily not eat any snacks in a day now and not have to have all my meals. I thought I might have lost weight so I weighed myself on the same scales I did a couple of months ago. I am a young tall girl and was 10 stone for the last year at least. In the last few weeks I have lost half a stone which is 7 pounds and am now 9.5 stone. This is not intentional and I did not aim or want this to happen so I am concerned about any continued lack of appetite and weight loss in relation to my health. Therefore, I am going to weigh myself each week and make sure I am eating all three meals. If it continues I'll visit the doctor. Also, I am noticing fatigue still which was a huge part of my pre diagnosis symptoms. I get to a certain point in the afternoon where I feel like I need to go home and rest because I can no longer continue. I have no stamina and it is restricting my freedom, which I feel has already been taken from me as a result of this diagnosis that came at a frustrating point in my life which was a huge nuisance. Finally, I am also finding it a bit of a struggle to get my head around the whole thing still and to understand what it means for me and my life. I am very worried and scared that it will impact me not just physically but mentally and socially and it scares me. I guess this was more me getting all this off my chest and into the open, if anyone has any advice or feedback I will be hugely grateful.
    • I've lost 3-4 pounds.   It surprises me, as I would have expected to lose more, considering how limited my diet has been,  how sick I was since early May, and now walking 35 to 45 min. after dinner.   I think it's the increased gluten-free bread and shortbread cookies.  I've eaten more of these as they settle my stomach and are safe when I'm not sure what else will work.   I think I may also be having more sodium, so there may be a bit of water weight. I am actually doing better.   I've been on Famotidine 20 mg., 2x daily for about 9 days, and added Vit D a few days ago.   I've been able to drop one of 4-5 stacked pillows at night, and will try dropping one more tonight.   I am down to Tums (1500 mg.)  around 3-4 a.m. for mild heartburn / upset stomach, and again when I get up.   Not much else, maybe occasional simethicone.     i tried returning to a salad at dinner, just lettuce, tomato, and onions, but seemed to have more trouble overnight, so quit.  I'm mostly eating an egg with toast, well cooked sweet potatoes/mixed veggies, tuna, some salmon, hamburger, chicken, Ian's fish sticks, bone broth, Schar's breadsticks and shortbread, some soy milk or macadamia milk, and the bakery gluten-free bread.
