What Am I Reacting To?!
0

9 posts in this topic

hello, all! hope some of you still remember me -- i've been doing a lot of stuff for school and haven't been here as much as i used to.

i just finished some Chik-fil-a Waffle Fries and my stomach is cramping. lightly, but still uncomfortable. it's not the first time it's happened (right, i should've stopped after about the second time it occurred -- but it's about the only thing i can eat on campus and i'm always starving after finishing all the things i've brought for my 9 hours on campus!). but these fries are fried in a dedicated frier (i've asked) and they should be safe. i don't react to oil or potatoes in other contexts. can anybody give me any insight into what i'm reacting to? i don't think something gluteny could have fallen into my fries every time, and i'm not that sensitive (that i know of), so i'm guessing this is something else.

thanks for your help! :D

My guess would be that your stomach is just reacting to the fried food. Since I no longer eat much fried food, I know it kind of messes with my system when I eat fried stuff or real heavy food. Hopefully that is all it is.

I've reacted twice to Chick Fil A fries. I'm thinking it is a cc issue. I'm just getting over the last one which was 2 1/2 weeks ago. Never again for me.

I thought I wasn't sensitive, too, until my last 2 glutenings which had to be from tiny amounts.

Karen - glutened from which one? Braker? 290? I've been safe at both...

Otherwise, it's possible about cc, it's always possible. I also had an upset stomach after not eating fried food for a long time, though...

Do you eat or drink anything else there? I would guess cross contamination if you get sick every time you eat them or that your stomach doesn't like the oil.

Braker both times. All I had was the fries and a lemonade. Both times I could feel my stomach hurt afterwards. Then this last time I also had brain fog, fatigue, and moodiness. That is the only questionable thing I ate in the 2 weeks before and after that. (Everything else was made by me with trusted brands.)

It doesn't happen to me every time but it lasted so long this last time that it just isn't worth it.

I didn't give them the celiac talk about not touching my fries with their gluteny hands. I just ordered them like a "normal" person. Do you ask them to be careful?

thanks, everybody, for your replies! i have never asked them to be careful... i guess that's something to think about, but i'm not very good at it... maybe it is just the reaction to fried stuff, because usually i only order the fries and nothing else. haven't been back yet. :)

Little question....do they use the same oil to fry their fries that they've used to deep fry battered Chicken?

chick fil a is supposed to use "dedicated" fryers (fryers that are only for their fries, and not the chicken). many restaurants are supposed to do that. Many times they do. But, many of us have gotten sick from them....so, obviously it is not always the case.
