Are Pringles Gluten-Free?
Pringles are manufactured by Kellogg’s and don’t claim to be gluten-free. Many different flavors of Pringles are made with wheat starch. Technically wheat starch is allowed in gluten-free foods by the FDA if the wheat starch is specially processed to remove gluten.
With that being said, unless it’s explicitly labeled as being processed to remove the gluten, wheat starch could contain a small amount of gluten. So I personally recommended avoiding Pringles until labeling becomes more clear.

Wheat starch is the only wheat containing ingredient. Wheat starch is supposed to not contain gluten (proteins removed to obtain just the starch). So the product contains starch, but does it contain GLUTEN?
Thanks, I’ve updated the post above. You are correct and I put more of a warning on this until labeling becomes more clear. The thing is that wheat starch could contain a small amount of gluten still. So my personal opinion is that it’s best to avoid it altogether for now. From my experience and conversations, many that suffer from gluten intolerances or have celiac also as have a hard time with wheat.
