Frito-Lay has a long-standing commitment to health and wellness and has been a leader in the food industry in making nutritional improvements based on sound science. Whether through improved products or new product introductions, Frito-Lay offers consumers a wide variety of snacks that can fit into a healthier lifestyle, and continues to build on these efforts. In 2010, Frito-Lay embarked on a multi-year initiative to validate products as gluten free and then label qualified products on packaging. We developed a rigorous gluten protocol for testing our ingredients and finished products, with input from the Food Allergy Research and Resource Program (FARRP) and CDF. Frito-Lay is using an analytical test called the R-Biopharm RDASCREEN Gliaden/Gluten assay to test our ingredients and finished products to ensure they contain less than 20 parts per million (ppm) of gluten before making a “gluten free” claim. This is the level set forth by the FDA in its Proposed Rule for Gluten Free Labeling. Since many of our chips are made from simple ingredients like corn or potatoes, they have naturally always been made without gluten. So we are not removing gluten from our products, rather, we are testing that the products contain less than 20 ppm of gluten based on their recipe. To illustrate this on our packages, we have started adding 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 product and bag size. Our website will always be the most up-to-date resource to identify products qualified as “gluten free”.

Cream of Rice

Cream of Rice is a creamy, hot and delicious breakfast cereal that has always been gluten free. A family favorite available at grocery stores nationwide, Cream of Rice provides three essential vitamins and minerals and is an excellent source of iron. When prepared with water, Cream of Rice is also low in sodium, and a naturally fat free and cholesterol free food. While Cream of Rice is often a recommended early food for infants and toddlers as it’s easy to digest, it can also be used as a warm breakfast option, as a gluten free thickening agent for soups and stews, as a baking substitute for flour, or as a dinner side dish instead of potatoes and polenta.
