13 Tostitos gluten-free options have been tested per FDA guidelines. In my humble opinion, I believe nachos should be a main food group. And, as you know, gluten-free tortilla chips are the foundation for crafting the perfect plate of nachos. Read on for details on Tostitos gluten-free options, package labeling (I love when it doesn’t take 10 minutes to read an ingredient label), and the low down on tortilla chips that contain gluten.

Frito-Lay is committed to labeling snacks that are gluten-free. In order to accomplish this goal, we are testing that the products fall within determined gluten levels (less than 20 ppm of gluten, the level put forward by the FDA’s Gluten-Free Food Labeling Final Rule). We are starting to add a “gluten-free” claim to our bags, where appropriate. The claim on packaging can appear in the form of a “GF” icon and/or a statement on the back of the bag, depending on the brand and bag size.

While Tostitos Salsa is naturally gluten-free, their salsa products have not been tested per FDA guidelines. All Tostitos salsa options fall into the Gluten-Free – Not Tested list below.


Via Frito-Lay: 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 cleaned between production runs, 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.

Sadly, all tortilla chips are NOT gluten-free, and all tortilla chips are NOT made from corn. Several types contain gluten, so be sure to read the ingredient labels. Stay away from chips that:

  1. Are made of wheat flour, not corn
  2. Are multi-grain and include wheat, barley, oats, rye or other variations of gluten
  3. Are “homemade” using wheat flour tortillas
  4. Have been fried in a non-dedicated fryer along with gluten food items
