Our lovely friends at Red Apple Lipstick shared the following information on their blog.

With all the talk about national food brands offering gluten-free options and the controversy whether or not they are truly gluten-free (see Domino’s), it’s refreshing to see a company make a real effort to show their products are safe for everyone to eat.

Frito-Lay has announced that they are going [to] certify that their potato chips test in a lab gluten-free before they are labeled as such. They are not changing the way they manufacture and prepare their chips; they really don’t have to. The main ingredients of Frito-Lay are potatoes, which are naturally gluten-free anyway.

Frito-Lay could put gluten-free on their packaging, but instead they decided to take the extra step and developed a gluten-free validation process for testing their ingredients before they go into the food and they test the finished product.
