Frito Lay Updates Product Lists

Once you have been on the gluten-free diet for a while things get much easier.  You become more aware of foods that may contain gluten, what brands you can trust, which brands you need to stay away from and so on.  One thing you must always remember is that suppliers & ingredients can change, so you must always keep up on reading labels & checking gluten-free products lists.  I try to do my best to get the word out when a food that was once safe for those on the gluten-free diet is no longer safe or may contain gluten.  Sometimes, for some reason, the ingredients change and the manufacturer is now using gluten; other times the manufacturer has changed the way their allergen statement reads and will no longer guarantee that the said food is safe, though it doesn’t contain any obvious gluten ingredients.

It is really nice when a company will share their lists of gluten-free products on their website.  Frito Lay has been sharing theirs for a while and the list has just been updated in the last month (April 2011).  Here is the most current information from Frito Lay:

Some people suffer from an intolerance to foods containing gluten, which is a type of protein found in wheat, rye and barley. Frito-Lay has validated through analytical testing that the following products contain less than 20 ppm of gluten.

Please note: The information provided pertains only to products made and distributed in the U.S. Products sold in other countries under similar brands may be made using slightly different recipes and ingredients to accommodate local needs and preferences.

U.S. Products Not Containing Gluten Ingredients

The Frito-Lay products listed below do not contain wheat, rye, barley or oat ingredients (we include oats in this list as a precaution as oats are often commingled with gluten-containing grains).  Please note however, some of the products listed below may be manufactured on the same lines as products that contain gluten.  Although our lines are washed between batches, Frito-Lay has not tested these products for gluten content and the ingredients in these products may have come into contact with gluten-containing products prior to manufacturing.  Individuals who are sensitive to gluten should take these factors into consideration in consuming these products.

All Frito-Lay products are labeled accurately with the most current ingredient information. Frito-Lay makes every effort to maintain this list; however, since the ingredients in our snacks are subject to change at any time, we recommend that you check the label on a specific product for the most current and accurate nutritional information. If you need assistance, please contact Frito-Lay Consumer Relations toll-free at 1-800-352-4477 Monday through Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Central Standard Time.

As you can see, Frito Lay has this list divided into 2 different lists.  The first one is a list of snacks that contain no gluten-ingredients and are tested for the presence of gluten.  The second list is one with snacks that don’t contain gluten-ingredients, but may have been produced on the same line as foods that contain gluten.  It is an individual, personal choice whether or not you choose to consume the snacks on the second list.  For my family, we have enjoyed snacks on both lists with no issues.   The bottom line is you have to do what is best for you & your family with the information that is available.

Kudos to Frito Lay for updating this list so that there can be as little confusion as possible when buying food at the grocery store.

    What’s crazy is, I have presonally been in contact with Frito-Lay multiple times, and had confirmation that MANY of the items on list #2 were, “absolutely free of gluten or cross contamination.” I just wish they wouldn’t change things…it’s so hard to find things to enjoy, then when you finally do, they change their procedures!
