Are Doritos Gluten-Free?

glutenfreechart5 Gluten-Free Confidence Score: 5/10

There is only one flavor of Doritos that Frito Lay lists as being gluten-free is DORITOS® Toasted Corn Tortilla Chips. You can see official Frito Lay list here.

Notice that further down that list, many varieties of Doritos are listed as “not containing gluten ingredients”, but Frito Lay stops short of calling all those flavors of Doritos “gluten-free”. That means that for many flavors of Doritos there is a chance for cross-contamination during the manufacturing process.  Depending on your gluten sensitivity level, this is a product you should be cautious consuming.

    The Doritos Spicy Sweet Chili package clearly states ” contains wheat ingredients”

      Thank you for the comment. The list above is not updated based on Frito Lay’s website and Spicy Sweet Chili is not on the list meaning it is not GF.

      Thank you for the comment! You’re right that regular Nacho Cheese Doritos do not contain any gluten ingredients but could still be cross-contaminated with gluten from the manufacturing process.

    Please check the frido lays website again. There is only one flavor of doritos on their website to be gf as of Aug. 26th 2015

      Hi Angela – thanks for the heads up. You’re absolutely right – Frito Lay must have recently updated their site. We have corrected the article based on your comment.
