I was told that protein style burgers at In-N-Out are gluten free. I had one last night and have not had a reaction or anything. Was wondering if anyone knows if the secret sauce is gluten free? I called In-N-Out and was told that the major ingredients are gluten free. The customer service rep I spoke with said that the secret sauce is a thousand island style sauce and was unsure about it's gluten content. Has anyone done research on this to know? I love In-N-Out because their fries are safe to eat.
PLEASE HELP.

My daughter's GI doc said the protein burgers were gluten-free! He recommended them highly! I sure hope he wasn't overlooking the "special sauce"! You guys don't think he would be that naive...oh my gosh, you just don't know who to trust, so I don't trust anyone. I would call In'n'Out myself and ask.

Dana,

Had one last night with the secret sauce and did not have a reaction-YET. I love In-N-Out, tastes fresh and makes me feel like I am eating "real" food. :P But, when I called In-N-Out, they didn't seem to check out the sauce. I have read on various sites that these "protein" burgers are gluten-free. I am confused. Has your daughter ever had a reaction? Hear from you soon.

I have been eating In N Out Burger for months now, with the sauce, and have not had a problem. However, I did have a contact problem with Goo Gone which made my hands break out in a red, burny rash. So watch out for household products also. Shirley

emmeeann, our doc just told us last week and we haven't tried one yet. Judging from what everyone has said, it sounds okay, though. You can always order without the sauce. I'm definately going to have one this week! My sister is visiting and it would blow her mind if I took her to a drive-thru! She is very sensitive about my celiac disease, in fact we're all going to Outback tonight to take advantage of their gluten-free menu. We had been planning for months to go to a Tea Room that is nationally known then I got Dx and that was that--she was really great about it and said she would never put me in an uncomfortable position with food. Plus, the best of all, she's getting tested for celiac disease at her checkup next month! Isn't great when people get it?! Protein burgers all around!

My boyfriend is gluten-free and had the protein burger w/ special sauce and got sick afterward. Since then he just orders it with ketchup and mustard instead and is A-ok!

The last info I have on In N Out is that the sauce is gluten-free. Everything else is gluten-free except the buns. My biggest concern there would be CC. It would be worth another call to them about their sauce though...

Here's the deal with In N Out. Everything is gluten-free except the bun. The Sauce itself is gluten-free. HOWEVER, they use a knife to dip in the sauce and spread on the buns, so they will not say it is gluten-free due to CC. I get my burgers with ketchup and mustard (which is in squirt bottles) and ask them to prepare my burger away from the bun area. They will do both (otherwise everything is just lying next to the buns). If you really like the sauce they keep packets under the counter with the ketchup packets.

Thanks for the clarification elonwy. You are always so thorough with your responses. I always learn something. I miss In N Out. It was a staple once…

Hehe. Thanks. I'm one of those annoying people who grills everyone within an inch of their life, then calls back the next day to make sure I'm getting the right answer, then asks the manager at the store anyway. *sigh* Drives my friends a bit bonkers, but I just hate being sick and don't trust people who don't have the disease to pay attn to every detail we would.
I love In N Out, but I won't do drive through with them and I also won't go when they are super busy. Its a great backup for road trip food in CA though, I have to say.
Mmm... now I want a burger and some cheesy fries.

I love In-n-Out! My favorite place to go and I can have fries without the worry of CC from the frier. You do need to ask them to cook on a separate grill =)

Gluten Free going on 5 years and counting!

gluten-free is a life change and not a diet.

Hi! I called In-in-Out burger last night because I'd also heard rumors of it being Gluten-free, and was told by the rep. that "everything on the menu is gluten free except the buns." She also went on to give me some pointers in reference to cross-contamination: ask for a clean spatula when cooking the burger and a clean knife when spreading the sauce (or ask for sauce in packets). They cook the burgers on a dedicated area, but the spatulas and knives do touch the buns!! Due to cross-contamination issues, it's the only "fast food" I'll eat. Another poster gave great advice when she said to go at non-peak times. I agree!

Diagnosed as gluten-intolerant by Doctor and Nutritionist via an elimination diet in June, 2008. Am gluten free and organic as much as possible! Refuse to undergo stomach biopsy process. Highly allergic/intolerant to MALT, MSG, maltodextrin, nitrates/nitrites. Currently identifying previously hidden allergies to shellfish and skin products containing gluten or cereal derivatives. 14-yo son is also gluten free and organic! LONG history with doctors and multiple misdiagnoses...

I become very emotional when I dwell on all the "life" I've missed due to years of gluten-induced illness, but I'm healthier and happier every day now - for which I am truly, truly grateful.
