I was accidentally served candied pecans at a restaurant that was being otherwise careful. Menu just said 'pecans'. Anyone know the chances that the glaze on he pecans had gluten? It's about an hour later and I haven't reacted, but I had inconsistent symptoms pre-diagnosis. Thanks.

I actually had this discussion with a chef who was sitting at the bar of a restaurant. He said they shouldn't as they are just sugar and sometimes cinnamon. The bar tender went and asked the chef of the restaurant and he said they were just sugar/ no gluten.

And I was at another restaurant and the same thing. They were safe.

Sometimes they have egg whites but they look like there is meringue on them.

You should be Ok, I'm thinking.

When I make them at home they're just sugar, cinnamon and a little egg white.  Could it be from some sort of cross contamination where someone touched gluten and then the pecans?

Blood tested 8-11 positive, Biopsy 9-11 negative (long story, most gastro drs. are morons)

gluten-free 7-11, Dairy Free (mostly) 8-13 - Everything but butter.  Can't live life without butter....
 

DS - negative blood test, just diagnosed with ADD and other learning disorders, DNA test positive - high risk

Issues related to gluten: depression, low iron, hair loss, positive ana test for lupus, low vitamin D, headache, sinusitis, environmental allergies, brain fog, GI problems, weight gain....the list goes on....

Thanks, everyone - was just wondering what the 'normal' way to make them was.  So far, no reaction, so I think I'm good.
