I saw online that they have simple and fit vegetable omelette with a side of mixed fruit. It says it doesn't contain gluten or wheat. I want to try it but i want to know if anyone tried it. I don't think im cross-contaminate sensitive because my mother has made me gluten free food on the same griddle she use gluten containing food, and i didnt react. I think at first i was reacting because i had a lot of food sensitives.But now im better.

Just because you didn't react then, doesn't mean you won't now.

 

I wouldn't do it. I've heard that some chains add pancake batter to omelettes and such. Even then, the high risk of CC would not be worth it to me.

I have, while traveling and have not had a problem.  I do remind them that I need fresh eggs, nothing from a container or mix and not the omlette eggs with the batter in them.   Do I take a chance ABSOLUTLY, but I do that anytime I eat out.  

 

Eating out is like russian roulette, I ask the right questions and double check everything, but I still have no control over what happens behind those kitchen doors, or that the person is telling me the truth.   That is just my own experience.  

 

A month ago while traveling I ate the best gluten free pasta I have even had, but when I ordered it, it came out with breadcrumbs on top and had to be remade.   They knew it was gluten free becuase it was marked all over my slip (and the slip was even a different color) and the upcharge for the gluten-free pasta, but it still didn't stop someone from adding breadcrumbs.   So even a place with more awareness than others can make a mistake, thank goodness I caught it before I ate it.   

 

By the way, I eat breakfast out more often than other meals, and I have yet to find a place other than IHOP that adds batter to their omlettes, most of them look at me like I have three heads when I ask that question :mellow:

"Food sensitivities"? is not the same as celiac.

Do you have celiac disease??

 

Because if you have Celiac Disease, you should not risk cross contamination, no matter if 

"you do not react".  You are still sparking the inflammatory process in your gut.

 

As a celiac, I would never eat food made on the same griddle as gluten containing food. Never.

 

That's just unwise.

 

P.S. Hope this sounds "helpful" and not "scolding"  :) because that was not my intention.

My gluten-free husband was traveling and was talking to one of the chef's at one of the hotel chains.  While requesting gluten-free eggs (to be prepared in separate pan), the chef mentioned that the oils he was using had barley in them.  He reminded my husband to make sure future egg orders are fried in butter.  Who would have guessed?

No clue, but the chef actually showed the cooking oil package to my husband.

I wish I knew the name of that oil because that's a new one on me. (and kind of weird.Why would someone put barley in a pure cooking oil?)

 

That was just a rhetorical question, BTW. I often wonder aloud about the crazy things found in food items.  :D Just makes no sense to me.

I think eating at an IHOP if you have Celiac is far more of a Russian roulette than eating out at a high end restaurant that makes all their food from scratch and understand cc.  There are different levels of risk and I still have trouble understanding why anyone would eat at ANY fast food place if they are a diagnosed Celiac.  CC is guaranteed at places like that. The people employed there have zero food training and haven't even been to school for culinary arts....where they learn all about cc.  The only place I eat breakfast out are places that are 100% gluten-free...and there aren't too many of those.

Actually had a similar thing happen to me at a hotel.  Hubby was getting me some scrambled eggs and the chef asked if he wanted toast with that. Hubby said no, it was for his gluten free wife.  The chef said that I couldn't eat the eggs because the oil (or maybe it was butter) they cooked the eggs in had barley in it.  He got a clean pan and made some eggs without the gluten specially for me.  Luckily this chef had a nephew with Celiac and knew what he was talking about.

Thought the above was funny.  It really doesn't do any of those things if you have Celiac.  In fact, it makes many of them worse.

I once had to leave my daughter with my mom for a little while, while I had a flat tire repaired.  Daughter was sick to her stomach at the time but now I can't remember why or if we even figured out why.  For many years she was sick to her stomach a lot. Although she doesn't have celiac, she had a gluten as well as a wheat intolerance.  And one of her symptoms if she ate it was getting sick to her stomach!  I came home to find the two of them fighting big time and daughter was in tears.  My mom was trying to feed her Saltines to settle her stomach.  Neither daughter nor I could get through to my mom that they would *not* settle her stomach!

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.  
    • Would you review this on Find Me Gluten free?  You can  use the app or just go to it on line. If the restaurant isn't listed, there is a way to suggest it.  I have done that and it works.  Many of us look at that site/ app
