Much to my surprise, Tostitos multigrain scoops are gluten free. What a fun treat! HOWEVER, tostitos multigrain "normal" chips are not!!!!! Guess who figured this out the hard way, and too late, of course.

It's one of the things that was burned into my head when I was first diagnosed - always always always read labels. Formulations change, etc. Anyone I know can tell you that after almost 10 years diagnosed I am still always reading labels. Even if it says gluten free on it, because I have other food sensitivities. And the second I drop the gdddmmnn ball I am paying for it, dearly.

I am extremely frustrated because the packaging is so similar between the two products. Not only that, they are both called "multigrain"!! :o

On the other hand, I did this to myself because the ingredient list clearly stated wheat. :(

tictax707, I feel for you. It's so frustrating! I'm still new to all this so I'm still in the initial paranoia. You sound like you've been vigilant and just had a slip of the mind that had bad results. I am sure it happens to many people, but that in no way makes anything better for you. I've only gotten gluten once and I am only now starting to absorb nutrients again so I can feel your pain!! It sucks that foods aren't just labelled as gluten free or NOT gluten free, but then they'd have to do that for every possible type of food allergy as well.

Good luck and speedy healing!

Lol! Tostitos Multigrain was my last glutening! I went to a party the chips were gluten-free then someone refilled the bowl with multigrain! I luckily grabbed just a small piece of one, and noticed it!! Luckily it was a small amount so my rash only lasted a week!

Oh my gosh, I've totally done this. I ate something the other day that totally had milk in the ingredients list! Ug! It's like you have to have "check the ingredients" tattooed on your hand....

Tostitos are probably not the best thing to eat anyway though, since they are made with GMO corn, and corn (as with all grains) does have gluten in it.

gluten in corn or rice,etc is not a concern for Celiacs. Gluten as a plant term is a protein in all grains. We use it as a food or Celiac term to refer to the proteins found only in wheat, rye & barley.
