Here’s the list of Frito Lay U.S. Products Made Without Pork (Porcine) Enzymes

As for our favourite Frito Lay snack, it’s Crunchy Flamin’ Hot Cheetos! However, caution must be taken and research done to ensure that this snack does not have Porcine Enzymes. We’ve noticed in the past it has gone off the list. So on our next trip to the U.S., we’ll be sure to get our supply of Crunchy Flamin’ Hot Cheetos 🙂

Happy Snacking!

    no porcine doesn’t automatically make it halal. i think if there is no kosher or halal label on the package then there is a possibility that other non-halal ingredients may have been used.

      Yes, you have to check for the rest of the ingredients as well.

    I’m pretty sure the cheese they use isn’t halal.

    Even if it has no pork – they could still have animal derrived ingredients. For example, Cool Ranch Doritoes have beef fat in their cheese. I called and was told that even if there is no pork, there can be beef fat in their cheese. It should be kosher to be able to eat the cheese

      Exactly. Same thing for most products that use cheddar or cheddar flavouring. Namely, Cheetos (which is sad because I’ve always wanted to try Cheetos. They look really good).

        You can eat Hawkins brand cheezies. They use no animal derrived ingredients. I called and confirmed and verified the ingredients. Walmart and Shoppers both sell this brand.
