Frito-Lay advances its gluten-free program
Frito-Lay has always been a gluten-free friendly company. Not only are a lot of its products, like Fritos corn chips and Lay's potato chip,s naturally gluten free. But the company has a complete list of its gluten-free products on its website:
The company today announced it is taking further steps in its gluten-free friendliness. It has developed a program to validate that its gluten-free products have less than 20 parts per million of gluten, which is the proposed standard by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Frito-Lay said products that are validated will have a "GF" icon and/or a statement on the bag of the bag indicating the products are gluten free.
