Safest not to get the potato chips that have been reconstituted (like Pringles). We have a brand in PA called Utz and they're awesome and have Gluten-Free marked right on the package.

Always check the ingredients. And of course, give them a test run. For instance, Frito's corn chips are supposely GF, but I've gotten a reaction from them, so they must have contamination issues.

There are potato chips that only have three ingredients in them and that maybe one of the ones that you want to use. NO flour, corn or wheat in them and they use sea salt.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

I used oatmeal in my last meatloaf. I never thought about using chips; I'll try it. As we have good labeling on our products, if the item doesn't say "modified food starch", and I can identify the other ingredients, I use them. My husband loves kettle chips, but I don't eat them much.
My brother uses instant potato as a binder for meatloaf. I'd cut the salt if I used chips, but I like the idea. Thanks.

There are very few brands that I can have as I can't have corn or peanut oil, but I can have some of the ones made with olive oil. They are very expensive but I have occasionally used them as topping for a casserole. They are very good that way. I hadn't thought about using them in meatloaf.

I never thought of them as breadcrumbs, you have no idea how much heartache you just saved me. I've been dying to make a real meatloaf for a few weeks but GF bread, crumbed, was not good.

The natural brands are usually GF. And they are usually happy to say so on the bag, somewhere around the ingredients.

emoticon All,

I am wondering if you all eat regular brand name potato chips. I have been using them as a substitute for bread crumbs in recipes such as meat loaf.

I got to thinking if they were truly gluten free???
