I was under the impression that maltodextrin was on the celiac no-no list. Which bummed me out majorly as I waffled at the cashier today over whether I could eat the cracked pepper potato chips I was greedily eying. I played it safe and returned to my desk empty-handed and a little less crispy. But a smidge o’ googling when I got back revealed I was mistaken! First, the Wikipedia page for maltodextrin says it’s so highly processed that the gluten protein is no longer present by the time it hits your smacking lips. (So highly processed? When was the last time I cheered for that?) So just to be safe, I consulted my trusty safe/unsafe food lists from celiac.com. That confirmed it. Woooowee! Ima get me some chips now. BOOM.
