I just can't seem to find yes or no. I eat bags full of Lays BBQ flavor chips. I can't tell one way or the other from the Lays site if they have gluten in them. Most all the other flavors say they don't but nothing clear at least to me on the BBQ flavor. Can you help me out please?

Thanks

If you're talking about the regular Lay's BBQ chips, the ingredients clearly list "barley malt flour" and their website does NOT list them as gluten-free. They are not gluten-free.

Hi All,

I buy Kettle Chips; the label specifically says gluten-free. The BBQ chips are great; actually, so are the other flavors. Not really much more pricey than Lays, either.

Thanks!smile.gif

I'll second Kettle - and besides, they are the BEST chips I've ever had. I used to love Lays but these are so much better.., to me anyway.

Please always read the label and double check but I believe that all flavors of Lays STAXX are gluten-free and made on dedicated gluten-free lines.

BT,

You don't say if you have Celiac Disease or not. If you don't, you can probably get by eating this product. The ingredients label clearly lists "natural Flavors (including barley malt)". However, the amount is probably very small. You may not notice any reaction from such a small amount if you are not real sensitive to gluten.

For those with Celiac Disease however, probably best to stay away from eating bags full of Lay's BBQ flavor potato chips. We cannot safely ingest wheat, barley, or rye.

best regards, lm

Does anyone know if regular Nacho Cheese Doritos and Chili Cheese Frito's are okay? The hot versions are on this list but I can't find the regular versions for all of them.

I hope so. Doritos are a major urge thing for me at period time. Rest of the month I leave them alone but when I'm mega crampy and I need me some salty cheesy crunchies I usually will splurge and buy a dollar bag of one of these.

I tried the natural Kettle chips this month? They're supposedly gluten free but made me very sick so they are not a very good Lays substitute for me. The "all natural" baked cheese curls I tried just plain sucked they were so bad. I will never do "baked" anything like that ever again. They may be healthier but they sure tasted like cheese flavored cardboard!

Not worth the splurge.

When it comes to chips I still much prefer Wise or Lays. Wise chips don't seem to be gluten free from what I can tell. I wish they were. I love their onion and garlic chips madly, used to eat a whole bag of them at period time. I'm not sure if it's gluten or the onion and garlic but something about them gives me a stomach ache now so I've given up on them pretty much.

Ditto the Maui onion kettle ones from Target which I used to buy sometimes as a substitute for those. I don't see any gluten ingredients listed on those but they must be cross-contaminated or something because some of those chips they make used to not make me sick and now they all do even the ones without the damning ingredients!

I'm getting tired of the odd handful of all natural blue corn chips and salsa.

I want me some Nacho Cheese Doritos!

Look on thier website or the back of the package. They say in big letters wheat. However, most flavors seem OK so maybe you can look at the gluten-free list & try some other flavors. I was surprised when I checked just now, howmany flavors are OK. I love chips! I had thought that most flavors are off limits. thanks for making me look! My thighs don't thank you.

Ah, yes, made the Doritos mistake 3 1/2 weeks ago -- took me this long paying for it for my body to heal. Ugh. Avoid the Nacho doritos!! They have many other flavors you can have, though, and some cheetos are gluten-free too.

The kettle chips are absolutely yummy and totally gluten free. The flavor that I love - Honey Dijon is also Parve... meaning it has not lactose or casein. I did find though that on Friday night when my DH and I shared an entire bag... it gave me heartburn but it was still delicious.

kettle came out with a new flavor... loaded baked potato! YUM!

with the other chips, lays, ruffles, you have to worry a bout cross contamination and your sensitivity. those aren't on a dedicated gluten-free line. the staxx are though.

isn't cool ranch doritos gluten-free? I believe that was one flavor that was okay.

Yes, many of the doritos flavors are gluten free, but NOT the original nacho flavor. :( I question if they are made on dedicated lines, so you may risk CC. But I've not had a problem with anything EXCEPT the nacho doritos. :)

For those who need gluten free and dairy free, try a bag of Chester's Snacks - Butter Flavored Puffcorn by Cheetos. They are gluten free, casein free, lactose free and onion free. I must let you know though, eating a full bag will still give you some powerful heartburn!

    • There was a study where they checked 2 weeks on a gluten-free diet , and antibodies were still going up .  The study wasn't about that, so I think that is why they didn't go any further.   So... looks like 2 months gluten free?  If we think that antibodies are still being made at least two weeks gluten free.... account for the fact that most people need a few weeks to actually figure out and eat gluten-free...I would say it was a bit soon to re- test antibodies.     Edit it to add- if you were tested sept 12 and ate gluten for 6 more weeks before going gluten-free - who knows how high it got.  Shame on your doctor for doing the re- test so soon and discouraging you!  
    • Your numbers should not be going up at all. You are getting gluten somewhere. Do you eat out? Have you read the Newbie 101 at the top of the coping section? That will help you to ferret out how you may be getting glutened. Do you have a gluten free household or is it a shared household? Do you read ingredient labels?
    • Thank you so much!!!! I have a severe allergy, I can not even walk through a grocery store without getting a migraine. I have always used dreft but now I know for a fact that it is safe.
    • I’m 62 and have just now been tested for Celiac.  My Titer was negative, I have zero IGa and too much IGg (16) which is an indicator of intolerance at the very least and may indicate the need for another endoscopy. He also tested for EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) which was negative.  I just had a colonoscopy/endoscopy last year as a part of being diagnosed w/ Gastroparesis. I also have (among other things which I’m not sure are as relevant) - T2 Diabetes, Hashimotos Thyroiditis (late 30’s) Chronic Kidney Stones (since age 40), Osteoporosis (way before Menopause and not well controlled), and Gallbladder disease.(was removed) I’m discovering that all those I listed may be related in some way, and related to Celiac.  I haven’t seen the gastro doc for followup since the testing (obtained results from lab) so I’m not sure what he’s going to recommend.  Here’s where it gets scary... my daughter has many of the same things. She was just diagnosed with EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) at 32.  She was diagnosed w/Glucose intolerance at 15, had her Gallbladder removed at 20, PCOS at 22, and Gluten intolerance at 30 (no testing, just her gastro’s recommendation). She’s been diagnosed w/Gastroparesis, POTS,  MAST Cell Activation Disorder, Peripheral Neuropathy, (lost use of her bladder and has a neuro stimulator) - all in the last year.  Too much coincidence for me.  This has to be all related. I keep reading more and more studies linking all these things (like EDS and Celiac) together. My daughters  geneticist is blown away by the multiple overlapping and co-morbid conditions we have and tells us it’s not uncommon. She also says research is expanding.  Sadly, the specialist docs seem baffled and can’t even begin to address our issues, and only help to manage the symptoms - sometimes. And every “Disease/Disorder” has a “diet” or protocol, and they are all at odds with each other - very frustrating.  I guess the moral of this story is to let others know that there’s a lot more to all this than meets the eye. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re fine if you have what seem to be strange unrelated symptoms. You’re not crazy. Keep fighting for understanding and knowledge. Be an advocate for yourself, you’re loved ones,  for us all.
