Wendy's And Arbys?
Posted 22 August 2004 - 06:07 AM
Does anyone know if the Wendy's hamburger and Arby's roast beef is gluten free? The kids at the counter can't tell me (of course) and I'm not sure how to find out for sure.
I'm also allergic to eggs, so eat out almost never. but htere are times when I need a fast food meal and these are two that I rely on heavily. I'm just going gluten-free and wondering if these will also have to go
York Lab food sensitivity test confirmed Gluten intolerant as well as milk, soy, yeast, barley, wheat, tomatos and peppercorn

It's possible it could be. The major problem you could encounter though, is that the person who would prepare your meat for you, is also handling the buns for other people's meals, and could get some trace amounts of gluten on your meat.
That's called cross contamination. When a food that is gluten-free, gets some gluten from other sources on it. Does make the diet a bit harder, since you need to watch out for that.
So in my opinion, Arbys and Wendy's should go.. wich does suck, I ate there a whole bunch before I went gluten-free. Haven't been at either place since.
Try looking through these boards, you should find a lot of stuff to help you out. =)

I like to be really careful though, and don't trust others to not contaminate something I'm eating. =)

Wendy's has a gluten-free list. Arby's lists the top 8 allergens in each item and also has a complete list of ingredients.
