You will be happy to hear that many of Lay's chips have now been certified as gluten-free through the Canadian Celiac Association's new Gluten Free Certification Program.
I want to point out that there is no flavour difference to the Lay's products you grew up enjoying. These products that have been certified have either always used naturally gluten-free ingredients or have been reformulated to be gluten-free without sacrificing the taste!
This is a direct quote from the Lay's team:
Our individual manufacturing facilities are recognized under the Gluten-Free Certification Program as consistently being able to manage a gluten-free environment and achieve the regulatory requirements to claim gluten-free. The Gluten-Free Certification Program recognition of facilities demonstrates that these facilities have applied due diligence through their gluten-free management system and that conformity was verified by a competent, independent audit.
The current list of products that have been certified as gluten-free include:
