Well we are always trying to help you guys, so we thought we would do a list of chips you can safely eat like we did with chocolate and sweets ! The first one that is out of the question is Walkers, all of their chips have a may contain warning, not a single bag is safe for Celiac.
Of course some will take the risk but I, for one, learned the consequences of that at the very beginning of my diagnosis, the bathroom had never seen so much of me that day. We have only listed popular chips /supermarket brands (except Lidl), however there are other makes which are also fine including Co fresh, Darling Spuds, Brakes, Eat Real and many more.

This crumbly cookie combines the best of traditional Scottish baking with the exotic tang of Stem Ginger and Lemon. A generous helping of chocolate chips provides a rich and luxurious complement to this classic shortbread cookie.
Each also meets the FDA standard for gluten free food, which is to have less than 20 parts per million of gluten. I think I first became aware of an issue when I saw this post on the Celiac Kids website in the summer.
This was a time when many food companies were busy getting ready for the new 20ppm labelling legislation, which came into force 1st January 2012. Walkers were no exception: they were removing the “suitable for celiac” message from their product labelling, and adding advisory statements on packs to the effect that the chips were being made in a factory in which gluten -containing ingredients were present.
Among them was Debra Samuel, mother to a teenage lad with celiac disease whose favorite chips were now out of bounds. In the Celiac Kids post I linked to above you can see the full standard response Walkers were sending out to customers last year.
I contacted Walkers’ publicist on the 28th November to request an interview with a relevant spokesperson. I wanted to ask them about this stuff, but also to ask why Walkers were telling people the ‘suitable for celiac’ statement was being phased out.
I can’t help feeling that Walkers are trying to distance themselves slightly from the responsibility for that confusion and pin it instead on the supposedly difficult law. This isn’t wholly dissimilar to the way their ‘suitable for celiac’ ‘being phased out’ statement appears to give the impression, at least to me, of helplessness and blamelessness in the face of Europe-sent legislation.
So would it be harsh of me to suggest Walkers didn’t communicate these changes effectively to consumers? The law was passed in 2009, it’s worth recalling, so there has been a three-year transition period during which all this could have been thought about, discussed, planned and implemented in the best way.
Edited on 23rd February 2012 to add: Have just received confirmation of two things: 1/ That Celiac UK are still in talks with Walkers, are ‘hopeful’ that changes will be made, and will keep people informed ‘as soon as we have any info we can share’. 2/ That Walkers are still, as of today, sending out the standard customer service message above, including the mistaken statement that ‘suitable for celiac’ is being phased out.

Not sure specifically in this case but Walkers themselves on their website state clearly that they aren't gluten free 0 (Original post by chelseadagg3r) Wheat, barley that kind of thing.
I still can't understand where the gluten comes from when the ingredients are potatoes, oil and salt. (Original post by Meany Pie) I still can't understand where the gluten comes from when the ingredients are potatoes, oil and salt.
(Original post by Meany Pie) I still can't understand where the gluten comes from when the ingredients are potatoes, oil and salt. It's made in a factory which handles wheat and gluten.

(Original post by Meany Pie) It sounds like they are being overcautious. But then again some ****wit will sue. They aren't being overly cautious in this case as when they've done checks, they have found gluten.

KFC is an international fast food chain that was founded by Harland Sanders in 1930. At the time, he was in the midst of a depression, but still mustered the courage to open his first restaurant in a small gas station in Corbin, Kentucky.
At the tender age of 6, his father passed on, and he had the responsibility of looking after his younger siblings while their mother spent long hours at work. KFC is one of the few original American brands that boasts a rich tradition and history.
Their success is partly attributed to a list of secret spices and herbs which were written on the back of his kitchen door more than 70 years ago. In 1936, Sanders’ restaurant began enjoying massive success, and by 1950, the Kentucky state governor named him colonel, the highest honor that a U.S. state can bestow upon a citizen.
Following this title, Harland began dressing the part to appeal to more customers, adopting a clean white suit and colonel bow-tie that has made him a pop-culture icon for Kentucky Fried Chicken. Currently, KFC is the most popular chicken restaurant chain in the world, specializing in their same original recipe, as well as other new options such as extra crispy chicken, buttermilk biscuits and home-style sides.
We’ve been making chips since 1947 and have been famous for our Golden Wonderful flavors ever since launching Cheese and Onion in 1962. This is just a placeholder page, it is used to hold the grid menu widget for this set of products.
