I just received this email from my local celiac group.

When I was at the Outback near my home last week, I asked the manager to bring me his gluten-free menu. I wanted to see if they had taken the steamed vegetables off, since they now contain wheat flour. They had not and he didn

The gluten free menus at my Outback say that you should order the steamed veggies without seasoning because the seasoning is not gluten free. This is the seasoning they whip into the butter. The last two revisions of the gluten free menus that we've gotten have both stated this clearly. Perhaps some of the Outbacks in your area have outdated gluten free menus???

Even though I never order veggies, I am glad to hear this just in case I order something different one day.

Thanks Carla

The seasoned butter has not been gluten free for quite some time, at least a year and a half, probably much longer. At least at my Outback it has always been listed on the menu as not safe. Just order your veggies without butter and they will be gluten free. The menu should instruct you to do this anyway. There's no flour added to the veggies, just the seasoned butter.

Mine too. I dont know where the confusion is, but I have always orderd the veggies "with out the butter ball" because the Gluten-Free menu clearly says "order without seasoned butter." I don't think this is new. I have been ordering like this at Outback (accorinding to their menu) for over 18 months now.

I wonder why they would have a old menu....

ATTENTION! YOU CAN DOWNLOAD NEW MENUS ON THEIR WEBSITE AND TAKE THEM WITH YOU!!!!! I try to do that so I know what I can have, some places don't get new ones in if they don't get too many Celiacs eating there.

This is a good idea. Recipes change all the time, so this is a sure way to be safe.

I do not know which Outback had an old menu ... this was an email sent out by my local group.

My Outback has had that warning as well, for a good period of time (like Guhlia's). I hope that other stores are updating theirs.

Although, I will admit....the one I went to in Auburn (my very early diagnosis days), had probably the first gluten-free menu ever printed, it was that old....there weren't many people who asked for it, apparently!

Thanks for the heads up, Carla.

Ever since I've seen a gluten-free menu for Outback - at least four years now - it has ALWAYS said not to have the seasoning for the veggies. Meat seasoning is gluten-free, but not the veggies. This is not new. It's always been this way.

Gotcha. Maybe you could pass along the info? I hate to think someone is dissing Outback. They are my favorite place to go because of the wonderful gluten-free selections, including 3 desserts!!!

Three deserts??? Which ones??? I mean, I get the chocolate thunder all the time, sometimes we go just for that, I didn't know there were others. Other than the cinnamon apple thing which they make you take half of the stuff off of to make it gluten free.

Here is the dessert menu I received today...

Cinnamon Apple Oblivion (had to laugh at this one though) Vanilla ice cream covered in cinnamon apples and pecans topped with caramel sauce. Avoid cinnamon apples and cinnamon croutons -- blew that one out of the water immediately.

Sydney's Sinful Sunday Vanilla - Ice cream rolled in toasted coconut, covered in chocolate sauce and topped with whipped cream.

the BEST one on the list....

Chocolate Thunder From Down Under...Fresh-baked pecan brownie, rich vanilla ice cream topped with hot homemade chocolate sauce and chocolate shavings. This is a flourless brownie; we even dust the pan with sugar! It is a fantastic gluten-free dessert.

Yeah, what she said :)

I really like the Sydneys Sinful Sunday! The crunch of the coconut is really yummy. I haven't tried the cinnamon apple one, like you said, you have to take off a whole bunch of stuff, seems like a waste.

    • OMG!!!! The doc wants her to get sicker & sicker & do further damage so he can diagnose her? Don't do me any favors doc!!! I'm so spitting med right now I can't even speak! Find a new doc, take the records & get a second opinion. Maybe the next doc will have a freaking brain & dx your daughter. She should be dx'd! This is absurd in the extreme. The very least that should happen is the doc give her a dx now & then in a year or 2 have her do a gluten challenge & do a biopsy all over again but seriously, that would be just as cruel as what he's doing now. He's an ASS!
    • Celiac disease may lead to a host of other inflammatory, gluten-related ... Fortunately, Diet Doc offers gluten-free diet plans which are customized to ... View the full article
    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html
