Snacks, Snacks and More Gluten Free Snacks

By | Jun 24, 2009

LAYS_Cheddar_Sour_CreamTwo guilty pleasures snacks of mine are Lay’s Sour Cheddar and Sour Cream Potato Chips and Doritos Cool Ranch Flavored Tortilla Chips. Both are made by Frito Layand both are deliciously Gluten Free. Since these are mainstream, popular products you may be surprised to learn they are gluten free. However, the bigger surprise is the varieties of snacks that Frito Lay’s offers that are gluten free. Frito Lays website,, provides an unexpectedly long list of gluten free snacks. In addition to gluten free snacks they also provide list for other special dietary needs such as lactose or casein free and kosher among others. Along with these helpful lists, full product details are available for every product they produce including the ingredients, nutritional facts and a symbol that indicates if it meets a special dietary need.

    Be careful with that one. Many of their “so-called” gluten-free products contain MSG which is often times derived from wheat. They can label a product “gluten-free” if has a trace. Just like a product can be labeled “fat-free” and still have up .9 grams of fat.

    Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is currently listed as a safe gluten free food ingredient. Visit safe Gluten-Free foods list to view this information.
    Many individuals do have an intolerance to MSG, so Frito-Lay has a list of their products that do not contain MSG here.

    Wheat is such a good source of glutamic acid, as is soy, and corn, that MSG is often made from these foods. It’s good to avoid anyway. I’m not taking the risk.

    I agree – AND many of the companies like Lays, Betty Crocker, etc. do NOT have a gluten-free dedicated factory. Therefore, there will be traces of wheat, soy, etc.
