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 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!

    • Turkey, vacuum pack it, you can use it later for soups, stews, sandwiches, omelettes etc. Will keep for months in the freezer

      Dressing,
      You can use it in various ways my fun thing to do with it is moisten it back up a bit and load it into a waffle maker these can then be frozen or eaten when ever, dressing and sausage flavored waffles are AWESOME.
      Other leftovers can be put in a icecube tray and froze these cubes can be kept in a bag in the freezer, they are perfect for just putting a few in a bowl and zapping in the microwave later for quick meal, I love stir frying them in with eggs.

      Gravy, Gravy can be frozen in icecube trays, and kept in bags, you can then put these over bread, mash, etc and melt them over them later in the microwave or use in a soup like a stock to add flavor.

      Most Desserts can be frozen but around here I have hardly ever had any last the next week.

      Mashed potatoes, again these can be loaded into icecube trays frozen and kept in bags for quick reheat and use meals. Goes great in soups later to thicken them up. Green beans, after thanksgiving....you might want a new flavor thankfully the green beans can be incorporated into another cuisines using spices, in a soup or stir fried Asian style in coconut secret teriyaki sauces.
      Casserole dishes honestly freeze quite well in may cases, I have not had many survive the next week but often you can top them other other cuisine spices or sauces and fry them up in a skillet or reheat in a bowl for something different.  
    • Appreciate the thorough responses.    The stomach issues have been dreadful the past few weeks and brought hurrendous awakenings.the worst I have slept in a long time. I have had a few gluten foods in all honest. Maybe a mcdonalds twice in 2 months. Which isnt ideal. But I dont seem to feel anything afterwards (terrible excuse I know)  My biggest worries were my memory and cognitive behaviour! I was in London Bridge station and forgot where I was heading for 15 minutes. My memory is terrible, as is the concentration. So its a bit of a battle at the minute and I am flunking in my new job. I feel like as you said, neurologically I have deteriorated. Wit and brain function out the window. Considering I was a pretty switched on person. Balance and diziness at points. (all this on a gluten free diet after 4 months triggered me too my mcdonalds binge) ha ha.  I think the memory was the worst.    As you said about the brit medical side being useless. I think you are correct. I understand its the NHS and free etc. But this is just not considered a worry. Ive considered pulling myself into A and E this past few weeks because of the pain and I know this is the only way anyone will give me a thorough look over. I was also sent for a bone scan ( no reasoning as to why) But from research it seems to be for searching the nutrients in the bone?    Neurological side has been really i think what has been the toughest. My job requires an awful lot of high concentration and memory. Which when I fail at, causes stress, and then I am caught in the vicious cycle! Thanks for the help guys. Nice to meet some fellow people who can relate. I just feel like celiacs seem to know more then the doctors, which shows primitive practice in order to solve it. Once again, I would never know the NHS or doctors. I understand free health care is health care. But how low on the list this is, is a worry.    
    • I get vomiting with large amounts of gluten, and motion control loss, followed by either Diarrhea or constipation for a week was back in June 2016 when I decided to eat at a new place, I was on my floor unable to move vomiting so hard there was blood in it.
      NOW trace amounts I have gotten sense then and confirmed via Nima Gluten sensor then following lab testing have show that for me I get constipation, gas, bloat, and nerve issues with fog and peripherally neuropathy. The vomiting was missing from stuff confirmed at 6ppm, but obvious other nerve and fog issues were apparent (I kept dropping stuff and walking into things, mind kept on wondering and having those what was I doing moments, topped with backed up to hell with painful gas)
      Everyone is a little different and symptoms seem to change and evolve with time and type/form of exposure. I used to get a angry Mr, Hyde rage mode, and weeks of constipation and I used to not have the motor loss issues just brain fog and looping thoughts. It changes

      The cause is mostly due to your antibodies going up and your immune system attacking your own body, where it attacks, how, and to what degree greatly varies and after a exposure it can take weeks to wind down off the response and for the antibodies to go down. Just giving a basic idea here.

      Once you get exposed all you can do is treat the symptoms and wait it out, up supplementation of b vitamins, magnesium etc. Take pepto, or Imodium depending on what you have, teas and bone broths and try to eat easy to digest foods for the next week, Mushed up, blended, purreed, stewed/steamed super soft foods.
    • Hi everyone,  Once again I am here looking for your help. I was diagnosed with Celiac less than a year ago. It took quite a while to find out because I didn't experience any particular symptoms after eating gluten. I was always tired, had memory problems and was frequently ill; sometimes I had gastrointestinal issues, but they came and went.  Last night I went out for dinner, to a Thai place I trust(ed). Later, I could hardly sleep, I had horrible nightmares, those where you can hardly tell apart when you are awake or not. I expected to have high fever but nothing!  Today all my body aches, I am very tired and was nauseated all day. A little bit gasy and bloated as well.. Was I glutened?? Did I already clean my body enough that I now start to react in this fashion? If so, why does that happen?  There is also gastroenteritis going around, that would be the alternative explanation. I thought I excaped it. I also didn't vomit or have diahrrea like the rest.  What do you think?
    • With a positive EMA and a positive tTg, that is a slam dunk for Celiac Disease.  If you read about testing results, the odds are 99% that you have it. You also had very high numbers on your testing so that adds to the diagnosis.  At this point, the biopsy, if you have it done, is to check for the amount of damage, and is not needed for a diagnosis. I declined the biopsy as I was very sick at diagnosis.  The doctor who ran my blood panel said there was no doubt I had it due to the high numbers on my blood work.  I have been gluten-free for 12 years and every single doctor I have ever seen since then, who whined about me not having the biopsy, shut up about it once they saw my initial blood work.  The difference in my health since going gluten free was nothing short of amazing. I am sure you will have the same results, once you go gluten free.
