Frito Lay Canada and US

There seems to be a common misconception that Frito Lay products that do not contain gluten ingredients are safe. Frito publishes a list on their website of all of their Products Not Containing Gluten Ingredients, but states that these products share equipment with gluten and residue may be left behind when the lines are cleaned between runs. The only product that they vouch for being completely gluten free is LAYS STAX Crisps. For my extremely sensitive BoyBee we are not willing to take the risk.

Frito Lay products in the US are tested for gluten content and a list of Gluten Free Products is published on their site. These are products that that have been tested and contain less than 20 ppm of gluten (considered to be gluten free).

We'll keep our fingers crossed that Frito Lay Canada starts manufacturing more products on gluten free lines or starts testing their products for gluten! In the mean time I don't think we'll have much trouble finding gluten free junk food ;)
