    Hi!
    I just have a question regarding the article about Takis. What “gluten-loaded” ingredients are in them? Also, the allergen statement says “made in a facility that may also process wheat”, so if gluten was an ingredient wouldn’t it explicitly say “contains wheat”? I have Celiac and just wanted to know if I am missing something.
