There are several ones out there that claim to be gluten free. Anyone have any problems with any of the major brands CC?

I use Mission white corn tortillas, marked gluten-free on the back. No problem.

I use Tostitos restaurant (white corn) chips and Tostitos organic blue corn chips, both marked gluten-free.

I also buy another brand of blue corn tortilla chips, but can't remember the name, but it is marked gluten-free.

I have had good luck with corn tortillas and chips so far.

So is it ok to still eat tortillas and tortilla chips, even though they are sometimes overly processed? This is the only thing in my diet I was adamate about keeping, but I'm afraid it is what might be causing the pounds to slowly but steadily creep on (I'm on day 16 of gluten-free diet, gained 5 lbs in a week).

You can keep them in your diet. The amount of calories you choose to consume is your choice.

I'm lucky if I get in 1200 calories, but tortilla chips are like a staple in my life - I use them to replace croutons on my salads. Just wasn't sure if that was ok :)

I like them on salad, too. Just check the brand you are buying for ingredients. I once saw a brand with "wheat" flour in it.

If you live in the US, here is a list of the ones that Frito Lay will say are gluten-free. Other may be but these are the ones they test. I get Santitos all the time and my fat behind loves them. :P

Who knew Cheetos were gluten free! Too funny. I recently found a brand called Garden of Eatin' that has blue corn chips made with "organic blue corn" that I'm inlove with. Like every other chip though, they are processed. Everything else I eat is super clean, except the chips! ;)

Tortilla chips are my crack.

Used to be Junior Mints, but we had a falling out...

Look, eating "clean" and "whole" isn't a strict rules-based ideology. Well, at least for me. Some people have rules - I just eat what works. My "guideline" is very little processed stuff and very little gluten-free grains.

Of course, I can't control myself if tortilla chips are in the house so I don't BUY them very often. And when I do, I pig out. Zero control. It's embarrassing.

Some other things you could try are Food Should Taste Good sweet potato chips or olive chips. Once you have been on the gluten-free and whole food diet a while and gotten better, you can try adding some processed foods back in. Look for foods that have minimal ingredients and no chemicals. Mission brand is good. There is also a new Rudi's brand tortilla wrap coming out but I haven't tried it.

Mission brand doesn't state they are gluten free? They had always been my "crack" until a few weeks ago, and I was afraid to continue eating them not knowing. I did however find a Tostito's Simply Natural brand today with only 3 ingredients - organic yellow corn, sunflower oil and sea salt. ;) They are good!

A lot of us do use Mission Brand corn tortillas and they are made on dedicated lines. This from their FAQs:

Are wheat flour tortillas produced in the same lines as corn products?

No, our corn production lines are dedicated to corn products only. Wheat Flour tortillas are produced in dedicated lines.

Tostitos restaurant style (white corn) chips have the gluten-free symbol on the back - towards the bottom left? The Naturals line calls it out in words on the front, I think.

Mission's 12 pack of white corn tortillas says gluten free in small bold letters near the ingredients. I haven't found all Mission tortillas to say it...

I saw one of those show it's made shows or some such a few years ago on the Mission tortillas. They had four dedicated lines for them a that time, to keep up with production demands. Four lines of just corn tortillas, with a machine stomping them out and then packing them by hand. They had ladies grabbing big stacks and stuffing them in the bags then.

My family gags on soft corn tortillas used to make quesadillas. We like the rice ones much better. It took us months to even find out they existed. We find them in the frozen gluten-free bread section of Publix. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

I didn't like them much at first either, but i now adore them :)

I love the Mission Extra Thin corn tortillas. They are gluten free, dairy free, Kosher and three are 110 calories. I pierce a couple of slits in three (so they won't puff up) and pop them in the toaster oven while I slice 3 mushrooms, 1/2 tomato, red or green pepper or any other veggies I have lurking in the fridge. When the tortillas are very lightly toasted, I spread 1/4 cup of Prego Traditional sauce (also gluten-free/df and kosher) between the three and top with the prepared veggies and some Daiya cheese. Back into the toaster oven on broil for a couple of minutes and I have satisfied my craving. This basic recipe only has about 230 calories. Lots of things you could add to this - Hormel pepperoni (gluten-free), Dietz & Weston ham, homemade leftover chicken, a couple of spritzs of Sriracha sauce, chopped shrimp, nutritional yeast (watch the labels), leftover asparagus (yeah, like that's going to happen), hot or mild peppers, pickled peppers, olives, artichoke hearts (watch the label), bacon (watch the label)....

My life would be so sad without Mission Extra Thin corn tortillas. :)

I've been away from this forum for a bit, but I'm b-a-a-a-c-k!

    • How does that happen!? Congratulations!
      (But still curious!)
      Plumbago
    • The sluggishness, hair loss, and weight gain made me think of hypothyroidism, but then the diarrhea throws me  - unless the two things are unrelated. Coincidental but unrelated. I looked up positive lactoferrin test on labsonline:
      Lactoferrin is a stool (fecal) test that is used to detect inflammation in the intestines. Intestinal inflammation is associated with, for example, some bacterial infections and, in people with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), it is associated with disease activity and severity. The test may be ordered to distinguish between IBD and non-inflammatory disorders and to monitor IBD disease activity. Also the bands refers, if I'm not mistaken, to neutrofils and as others have said, usually this means that there is an infection or inflammation present and the bone marrow is producing more WBCs and releasing them into the blood before they are fully mature. I'm sure you would have mentioned medications you were taking if you or a medical provider thought they may be affecting you negatively. Let us know if there is anything else we can do. You have a lot of people here ready to help. Plumbago   ETA: I see the doctor chalked something up to your occasional use of ibuprofen. Sorry, I could not figure that one out, and how it had much to do with your symptoms.    
    • http://hypothyroidmom.com/10-nutrient-deficiencies-every-thyroid-patient-should-have-checked/ Maybe this article can help.   Malabsorption of nutrients can make the body do weird things.  
    • Thank you!  I'll check it out.
    • They are N/A because they were not tested for on those dates. Also, I have never been on thyroid medication so I can rule that possibility out. Is it possible that TSH fluctuates before hypo presents itself? It has been 4 months since my last test and a few symptoms that I thought would resolve themselves by now on my gluten-free diet have persisted which is making me question these thyroid numbers further.
