Hey Canadian friends, are Cheetos gluten-free? I can never remember to call during their time and they haven't a email on the Canadian site. Thanks for the help.

Hi Corrine,

According to my Frito-Lay gluten-free list dated July 7/05, the following 3 Cheeto's are gluten-free.

Cheetos Corn Twists

Cheetos Crunchy Cheese Flavoured Snacks

Cheetos Puffs Cheese Flavoured Snacks

At the end of the letter is the CYA 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.

Blah, Blah, we recommend that you check the label on a specific product for the most current and accurate nutritional information.

The phone # is 1-800-376-2257 M-F CST. And they'll send you a list and a coupon for $1.50 off your next purchase.

In the US, yes...but are not made on dedicated lines. Sorry, I don't know about Canada and their website is useless...

OOPS! Forgot to say that my letter is from Frito-Lay Canada, so those three I mentioned earlier are gluten-free, but as celiac3270 mentioned, not manufactured on a dedicated line or a dedicated factory.

Thanks very much. They're not for me but my daughter. We're going to a Sunday School picnic on Monday and I can never remember to phone FritoLay. MSG doesn't seem to bother Hannah. That's incredible since so many things do.

I believe they have modified food starch which doesn't say much. Sometimes MFS bothers me and other times it doesn't. Who knows what they do to modify it. <_<

    • Yeah we learned that the hard way.  I am inclined to think (as I did initially) that it was JUST the Cheerios but as time is passing and she is not bouncing back I am worried that we need to strip away dairy again for a while.
    • Oh I have no issue with being dairy free personally but tell that to a 13 year old.  We both went gluten-free at the same time and it has been mindlessly easy for me.  But I am easy about food and no real food issues.  I am far more adaptable.  She comes to the table with her own unique set of issues that complicate just easily transitioning to dairy free versions of much loved favorites.  To most they are jst that "substitutes" to her they are completely different foods and ones that she has no interest in eating.  They don't satisfy her need for XYZ.  It is like craving an apple and someone handing you a fish.  For her anyway! LOL!
    • I believe the talk around this forum is that cheerios are not gluten free enough for people with celiac at this time. I don't know if anything has changed on that and when their lawyer calls me I'll quickly delete this. haha  
    • Could be we generally say get off of dairy for a few months when going gluten free. The part of the intestines that produce the enzymes, and help break down dairy are associated with the tips of the villi, which are the most damaged if not gone in celiacs. THIS is why most of us end up with a lactose intolerance early on. And most can introduce it later after healing. As to her symptoms with it there was a bunch of research about dairy permeated the gut and causing neurological issues in a autism study I was looking at years ago. And there have been other studies about damaged intestines and how the hormones in milk can easier effect ones body.   Personally I also have a huge grudge against dairy on a personal level as it is not natural to suck on a cows tits and drink the stuff, nor your dogs, nor a rabbits......I mean come on even Human Breast milk you would find odd to drink as an adult right? Back in the past dairy was a great way to get calories and fats when there was famine, etc around I mean it is meant to make a calf grow into a 500+lb cow. But on a genetic and hormonal level it is not really for human consumption and now days the whole corporate BS propaganda push and dairy farms shove that oh its healthy stuff down your throat. There are plenty of dairy free options for everything feel free to message me if you need help finding anything I have been dairy free for over a decade.
    • The full celiac panel checks TTG IGA and IGG, DGP IGA and IGG, IGA, EMA as Jmg stated above. Your test included TTG IGA and IGA. If your IGA was low, a low on TTG IGA would be inconclusive. But your IGA is fine. A high on any one test is a positive for celiac and should lead to an endoscopy for confirmation. So I'd get tested for TTG IGG, DGP IGA and IGG and EMA since there are symptoms. Warning I'm not a doc.
