Hardee's

I cannot find gluten information anywhere on the Hardee's website anymore. I found the nutrition section, but it didn't say anything about allergens. Does anyone know if Hardee's burgers (no bun, obviously) or fries would be safe? Also, the chili cheese fries look great, but I have been afraid to try them without a gluten free menu.

I suspect that you couldn't find any gluten free information on Hardee's is that there is none.

Wendy's though, has several items to select from.

This risk of cross contamination is always a concern at fast food places.

Oh, I know fast food restaurants are a cross contamination nightmare, but when traveling it just can't be helped much. We love Wendy's, but I was looking for something different now and then. Wendy's was a favorite even before gluten free and it jumped quickly to the top of the list.

I was afraid Hardee's wouldn't have anything. Dh likes it, but I guess it will have to stay a work-lunch stop.

You're right, there is no more gluten-free info on the Hardee's website!!! They have a low-carb burger that used to be listed on the gluten free menu. It was served in a lettuce pocket and I used to get it occasionally as a lunch treat. The last 2 or 3 times I ordered it (couple of months apart) I got glutened, so of course I gave it up a few months ago.

I thought perhaps it was a cc issue at the one Hardees I visited. Now I wonder if they changed grill sprays, or something that causes it to no longer be gluten free. I react to truly trace amounts of gluten so who knows...cc or new supplier??? Hardee's no longer works for me (and they used to).

The low-carb Thickburger definitely was gluten-free, but I haven't checked on it or had one a in a while. The fries definitely are NOT gluten-free because there's no dedicated fryer.

Wow, I didn't know Hardee's were still around. All of the ones in our area went ou a few years ago. CC is a big risk. Sorry their website is not very helpful. Some of us on here should get together and make our own grab and go dining facility. We would always have company!!! :)

BTW, if you really want to eat there, you should check on that low-carb Thickburger. IMO it's better than a burger with a bun -- and a whole lot fewer calories, sodium, and fat. Not healthful mind you, but an improvement. Also check on the low-carb breakfast bowl. It reads as if it should be gluten-free.

Oh YES!! That low-carb thick burger was/is awesome!!! I'm not sure when I'll have a chance to write the company, but if someone does, I'd love to hear their reply. I LOVED that lettuce-wrapped burger!!

If it's still gluten free, I still won't return to the location convenient to me, but I'll give other locations a go when I travel. I can't help but wonder though if there's been some change. I used to always eat it with never a problem. Then suddenly, several months ago, I was definitely glutened about 3 times in a row, several weeks or more apart. Of course my original assumption could have been correct, second-hand glutening (my entire experience was with one specific location).

I live in Wisconsin and have eaten successfully at two Hardee's (one in Oshkosh, WI and the other in Oconto, WI). Both times I got the low-carb burger in a lettuce wrap. Granted, I haven't eaten at Hardee's in about a year, but the last time I was at the Oconto Hardee's, they had a dedicated fryer for fries. I don't think the one in Oshkosh had a dedicated fryer, so apparently they vary by location....

    • I think the idea of grinding your own at home stems from the thought that flavored coffees might be ground on the same machines.  The grinders in the grocery are not cleaned between uses.  However, I have not found a flavored coffee bean that had gluten, so it's probably not a real concern.  For coffee that comes from a factory ground, I wouldn't worry at all.   Machines would be cleaned between flavors and nothing but coffee could be made on the machines or even in the same building ( everything made would taste/ smell like coffee). if you still have doubts - I went to the International Celiac Disease Symposium a few years back.  This is held every few years in different countries for medical professionals that study and treat Celiac.  They present research, etc.  All food served was gluten-free.  We drank a lot of plain, already ground, coffee!  A lot!   Coffee is not on any lists as a gluten containing food.  Talking legitimate organizations - not some blogger or pseudo- science website.   After all this, if you still doubt that coffee is gluten free...... Then don't drink it!  It leaves more for me!    
    • To answer some of your questions.... Non celiac gluten sensitivity does not cause any damage to the small intestine so that is not the source of the "little holes or bumps".  You need to get her records including the report of the endoscopy to see exactly what it says as well as the pathology report of the biopsies. You should always get medical records anyway & keep a copy for yourself. How many biopsies did he take? There should be a minimum of 4, ideally 6. The small intestine is very vast even in a small child. An adults is the size of a tennis court! That's a whole lot of territory so biopsies can miss damage especially when enough of them are not taken! She has 2 positives on the serum panel. This crap about "weak" positives should be thrown out of the nomenclature! A positive is a positive, weak or not! Her DgP IGG is way over the range and extremely telling. As far as my knowledge goes, there is nothing else that causes a positive DgP IGG other than celiac disease. False positives are really rare and to have 2 false positives would be astronomically rare! You are right & smart that she really does need an official diagnosis! IMHO, keep her on gluten for right now. Get a second opinion pronto & I believe you'll be able to get her a dx based on the 4 out of 5 rule if nothing else. I wouldn't think it's going to take more than a month to get to see another doc for a second opinion. Then you can take her off gluten. Kids heal up really fast, way faster than us old geezers! I'm sure as others  wake up & get on their computers they will be along to voice their knowledge. I am in the eastern time zone & rise before the birds so I was on here early. Hang in there mom! You're doing the right thing!
    • Now that my initial rage has calmed a tad.... your daughter has to fulfill 4 out of 5 of the diagnostic criteria. Second opinion can do a gene test. If positive, then she will have4 out of 5 of the dx criteria to dx without a positive biopsy. See: http://www.gastro.org/news_items/a-biopsy-should-not-be-required-to-make-the-diagnosis which says in part: The presence of signs and symptoms compatible with celiac disease. Positive serology screening (high serum levels of anti-TTG and/or EMA). Presence of the predisposing genes HLA-DQ2 and/or –DQ8. Histological evidence of auto-insult of jejunal mucosa typical of celiac disease. Resolution of the symptoms and normalization of serology test following the implementation of a gluten-free diet.   Also see: http://www.tenderfoodie.com/blog/2014/5/1/dr-fasano-on-new-gut-autoimmune-research-autism-clearing-up.html She can get a dx after her symptoms resolve on a gluten-free diet!
    • 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!
