Dry Roasted Peanuts?

12 posts in this topic

Today I order a salad with cranraisins, sliced apples and unseasoned grilled chicken. I brought my own Newmans Dressing. When it arrived, it has what I thought were pine nuts (thought, ok cool). Half way through my salad the nuts tasted seasoned. I asked and yes they were dry roasted peanuts, similar to Planter's.

I have not bought them since gluten free and I have no idea what brand they were, nor was able to read the restaurants ingredience on the nuts. (I have not reaction to peanuts, but concerned about the seasoning). I am not concerned about the grilled chicken.

Ball Park question, are they generally gluten free or should I break out the Imodium soon?

Thanks Patti for the time to look this up. Don't know whether they were planters, but feel more comfortable now.

I am still a little bugged that they did not list the nuts on the salad menu. What if I had a peanut allergy. When I inquired about the nuts, the own ask if it was ok and I responded with "I'm not sure". She gave me that look like "Sorry, but not my problem". GRRRR

It would have been her problem if you were allergic to them. If they were not in the ingredients in the menu's description of the salad this place needs a refresher from the Health Dept. After all someone is supposed to go to a seminar at least once a year. It is actually required that someone to attend if you have a restaurant in NY. With peanuts being a possibly fatal allergen that was very irresponsible. I don't think I would eat there again and I would tell them why.

Hi, just new at this gluten-free thing. Just trying it out for a couple months per Drs recommendation. So, some dry roasted nuts have gluten? This is not something in the nut per se, right? More during the process they may add stuff to it that adds gluten?

Like:

Roasted Peanuts

Roasted Sunflowers (not a nut, but I like them)

Roasted Cashews

How's Dry Roasting different than just roasting?

Thanks!

There can be flavoring or gluten containing ingredients used in the processing in dry roasted nuts. You best bet if they don't carry a gluten-free label is to call the company or check their website to make sure they are safe before eating.

I would write to the manager and explain why I would not eat there again. If they can't be trusted to reveal peanuts, of all things, I wouldn't trust them with gluten, either.

I have occasionally sent salads back to the kitchen because the menu didn't specify that there were cucumbers in it. I'm quite allergic to cucumbers, and that makes ordering salads as a sure-fire gluten-free alternative rather difficult. I not only have to tell them to prepare it away from any crouton contamination, but to wash the knife and cutting boards that might have been used for other vegetables! Cucumbers aren't likely to make me stop breathing (but not impossible), but they will ruin my evening and make me very uncomfortable.

I can, at least, understand why cucumbers might be a surprise since they're not a "major allergen," but peanuts? That's beyond irresponsible.

Im not sure about "dry roasted peanuts", but I do know that some nuts that are flavored (usually they are "candied") have gluten. Southwest airlines ruined me with their peanuts one trip.

worth looking into if you want to eat there again.

Yeah, it's not the nuts, it's the process or coating. Some peanuts are coated with yeast, some with salt mixtures, some are naked but processed on the same equipment as the coated ones so they are cross contaminated.

I don't eat very many nuts anymore (is there an emoticon for a pouty face?)

Hope this info is helpful,

I swear, domestic airlines are the most inhospitable place on earth....

first they hassle you about what sorts of foods you can and cannot carry on, and then they cancel your flight, making you wait for hours in a closed venue with almost nothing in safe foods, then when you finally make it on the plane, there's nothing but tiny little packs of peanuts .... yes, with gluten.

Maybe it's a two- fer to free up another seat from their point of view, if the peanut doesn't get 'em the gluten will. <_<

This tread was started about two years ago. I think the point was, that restaurants put undisclosed ingredients in your "salad". So, do use caution.

Regarding the airlines, they are a bit inhospitable. Funny how I keep defending them, even though they have cut my income in half. They are just trying to survive and catering to special needs, just isn't a priority at the moment. So come prepared.

Back to the peanuts...Planters Dry Roasted are gluten free.
