Do crisps contain wheat and gluten?
Potatoes themselves are generally gluten free, however, not all brands of potato crisps are. Some flavourings can contain gluten, as it is a type of protein found in other products used to season the crisps. Gluten can be found in grains such as wheat, rye and barley, therefore potatoes are also free of wheat. As a type of starch vegetable, they can be a great food to use on a gluten free diet.
At The King’s Deli we don’t believe that crisps should compromise on quality or flavour, in order to be gluten free. Therefore, our brand ensures you can indulge in our great-tasting crisps until your heart’s content!
Are gluten free crisps healthy?
There is no evidence to suggest that it is beneficial for your health to eat gluten free crisps over regular crisps. However, at The King’s Deli we want our crisps to be enjoyed and available to everyone, that’s why we chose the gluten free option. Not only are our crisps gluten-free, but they are also suitable for vegetarians and most can be enjoyed as part of a vegan diet.

How Can I Spot Gluten-Free Crisps?
Gluten free crisps and other food products typically feature a gluten free symbol known as the ‘Crossed Grain License’, on their packaging. Where symbols aren’t visible, there are a number of indicators a product is not gluten free, giving those who are trying to avoid gluten, elements to look out for. It is important to make note of the fact a lot of flavourings used for crisps contain wheat flour which is unsuitable for those seeking a gluten free diet. In some cases, crisp products can’t be classified as gluten-free due to the risk of cross contamination during the manufacturing process.
