In N Out Burger

20 posts in this topic

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 =)

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!

We continue healing every day.

I have been eating at In-N-Out for years. I've never had a reaction. So much fun to get fast food!

Ate there (San Francisco, Fisherman's Wharf) on Sunday when it was really quiet. Enjoyed a lot, but did notice that when they were making my burger it was on the same surface where they had buns . . . should I say something next time?

Can someone please pickup 20 of those burgers and carry them onto a plane and bring them to Grovetown, Georgia? I'll be nice and let you eat one of them.

You do have to be a bit careful with this place though. We try to go during off peak times and ask that they change gloves for the protein burger meals and fries. One time we told them of the "allergy" and they handed us the regular burger with the bun in the same box touching the gluten-free ones. The were apologetic and did re-make the order. We still eat there, but we are very careful about it.

At Fisherman's Wharf today for my burger treat.

When I asked for extra care in preparing my protein burgers the assistant pressed a button on the till for "allergy." She said that this was new system, to alert the preparers to the fact that they were dealing with food allergies.

I was impressed by the whole service.

    • puffiness in face
      The puffiness in my face went down a lot after I went gluten free. Old photos shock me sometimes now! Your doctor should be able to test you for food intolerance? Here in UK I did tests for wheat, nut, mustard etc. You can do a blood test and there's also skin prick tests I think, am sure others here would know more.  Good luck    
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      Here in the UK I can't eat Lay's owned Walkers crisps as even the ones without gluten ingredients can cause a reaction. I read it was something to do with their production processes. Looks like others have same problems too:  
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Don't apologise! Not needed here at least where people know exactly what you're going through. As Cyclinglady says, you're now in a grieving process for the former, carefree attitude to food you've now lost. You may find this helpful in understanding the psychological journey you're on: http://psychcentral.com/lib/the-5-stages-of-loss-and-grief/ It WILL get better. Eating cleanly is very good advice as you heal but you can then find the replacement snacks and treats that are safe to eat.  I now know which chocolate bars are ok, which brands of crisps (chips) are safe etc.  I don't drink now, but I did find there were some fantastic ciders that I could tolerate and you've always got wine! In fact one of the weirder discoveries post gluten was that my past (vicious) hangovers were far more about gluten reactions than the alcohol itself. A cider hangover is a breeze in comparison All the best!  
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      I ate some baked lays last night and felt very sick all night and haven't been feeling great all day today. Other than that I didn't eat anything different from what I normally eat and there was no risk of cross contamination with anything.. These were the only thing I had that was different. They're labeled gluten free so I figured it would be okay, but I started feeling sick pretty soon after eating them. I'm not sure if it's another ingredient in them or what (and i know it's not the soy).. Has anyone else had a reaction to lays potato chips?
    • Symptoms In Toddlers?
      Welcome Ashley! Here are the current tests.  The DGP versions seem to work a bit better than the TTG in small children.  So, ask for the complete panel (and get it all in one stick....my 15 year still hates to get blood drawn ! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your doctors are wrong!  They must be reading old medical text books.  Not all kids or people have failure to thrive!  You can even be symptom free!. I was anemic and had no intestinal issues when I was diagnosed.  celiac disease affects everyone differently and that's probably why so many folks are not diagnosed. Your kids (parents, siblings too) should be tested every few years (sooner if symptoms develop) per all the leading celiac researchers/doctors if a first-degree relative has celiac disease (like you!)  celiac disease can develop at any age! Hope this helps!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
