These snacks, whether corn chips or rice chips, have dairy products in the ingredients like cheese or buttermilk, but is it enough to cause a problem?

Everybody is different Medz...It is really an individual thing. So if you can tolerate it just fine than by all means eat and enjoy! Some on here will tell you no to junky chips. No to dairy, too much sodium and so on. But again, to each his/her own.

I've found Pop Chips to be the best.

I mean the flavor, for example I checked Pop Chips Sour Cream & Onion and it has this:

Buttermilk powder, Sour cream solids, Onion powder.

Now, most here do not eat buttermilk (or any milk), sour cream, or onions, because they cause problems.

So my question is, do those ingredients also cause similar problems?

I'd get gas and probably cramping about 6 hours later, but I don't eat them much anyway. Good thing, because they're delicious and very addicting!

Exactly. Dairy can be hit or miss. Gas and cramping for Quincy but you may not have that issue :)

For instance, my weakness is pizza (Darn Carbs which I try not to eat more than my weight in, in a day that is), which I like with just smooth tomato sauce and normal cheese. I prefer mine w/ no toppings either. To filling and and absolutely not fond of veggies other than sweet or regular potatoes.

I eat them but nothing happens to me. I eat pizza too. And potatoes. And dairy. If they don't hurt you go for it.

Chips I definitely have to avoid-- my colon hates high sodium anything. In the good ol' days before UC I probably ate a ton of Lay's regular & barbecue flavor, very addictive as Quincy points out. Plus too many calories as one gets older ... / Old Hat (30 yrs with left-sided UC; presently in remission taking brandname Colazal)

I wouldn't think that would mess with you too bad, BUT the heavy oils that some chips are cooked in might. We are all different when it comes to food so you won't know if it bothers you unless you try it. Me, personally......I love the baked chips such as Doritos Cool Ranch :)

yeah, I have a problem with those particular flavors- I eat WAY too many! I love potato chips, sour cream & cheddar is one of the best flavors out there! I'm only safe if I just don't buy a bag. As far as my UC goes, they never bother me more than any other food.

Ew, Doritos! lol. I'm fine with unhealthy chips too but since trying Popchips I'm addicted. I found them at Target. They probably are your best bet.
Maybe you could eat plain chips and make some kind of UC-friendly dip to avoid the flavorings. Be inventive =)

I try not to eat things with huge lists of ingredients. Flavored chips tend to have loads of ingredients, most of them I can't pronounce. Once in a while I give in to a bag of flavored chips but usually I stick with plain old potato chips. I am sure none of these chips are very good for you and definitely not good for my weight loss plan

You'd be surprised at the many products that contain lactose in it (many flavors of Doritos, Ichiban soups, ect) and you'd also be surprised that lactose intolerance can be very easily masked by IBD symptoms, it happend to me...I thought it was just my CD going crazy on me as usual, my GI sent me for a lactose tolerance test and sure enough it was discovered that I had severe lactose intolerance...he explained to me that ppl with severe lactose intolerance like myself could have the smallest amount of lactose (like what's found in flavored chips, soups, ect) and react badly to it...if you find this sounds like you, get a lactose tolerance test done...it made a difference for me...once I discovered probioitcs (ones that specifically can aid with lactose intolerance issues that is) I no longer have to use lactaid products.
bee propolis caps 500mg one cap twice/day
omegas 369 caps one cap twice/day
probiotics 10 billion cfu once/day
vitamins C-calcium ascorbate (easy on the gut) and vitamin A each once/day
Prodiem fibre supplement one cap before bed
I've also altered my diet (no junky stuff at all, processed, fast-foods, refined sugars, ect) and exercise regularly.
I went from 30+ bloody BM's/day with lots of lower back pain to an average of 5/day no bleeding no back pain and completely formed stools, still have severe urgency issues.
