Dry Roasted Peanuts?
0

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.

    • Hi everyone! I'm feeling very frustrated. I have been dealing with GI upset, bloating, very painful gas(that is hard to release), alternating from constipation to diarrhea for a long time now:(... my symptoms seem to be getting worse. Sometimes I get painful spasms located on my upper right quadrant of my stomach and low grade fever. I recently went to a GI doctor and he put me on a lactose free diet. He said I might be lactose intolerant and may have IBS. He did not think I would have celiac. I did relatively well on the lactose free diet for 2weeks.This diet alleviated some of my gas discomfort. Also, he had me get blood work for celiac, ulcerative colitis and H pylori. My bloodwork was positive for celiac disease. The antibody TTG was high 36.6, which is specific for celiac. My C-reactive protein was high as well 13.4--Norm is 2-7(C-reactive protein checks for inflammation anywhere in the body). They called me and told me I had to get an upper endoscopy, which biopsy showed up normal. So should I just leave it like that, or go to a different doctor and get a different opinion? I'm just wondering why TTG antibody-A  was elevated. I'm so frustrated and I really don't want my symptoms to get worse... is there a lot of false negative biopsy? What should I do:(??? Should I just give up...
    • It's all very frustrating.  I had the skin prick tests done last year and they told me I had no allergies, but I have reactions all the time, such as itching, watery, runny, itchy eyes, digestive issues, stomach cramps, IBS-type symptoms,  mental fogginess, etc.   I had blood tests done by a naturopath a few years ago and my worst food intolerance was wheat/gluten by far.  The naturopath found several other reactive foods but said most of them were mild compared to my reaction to gluten.  I looked online at the ingredients for both products, but it's confusing, the main ingredients shared by these two products were brown rice flour and potato starch.  I've used brown rice in baking with no problems, it could be the potato starch, which I don't often use, but I don't have any reaction to eating real potatoes.  
    • It starts as a piercing itch and the skin turns reddish with a few tiny red bumps. Then tiny watery vesicles appear and itch like crazy. The whole process from start to finish is about 3 weeks and the lesions leave a purplish skin tone and scab. I get them on the back side of both knees near the bend.  Sometimes it's just a few scattered vesicles in the same area. I've had Drs say eczema or herpes. My next step is to find a dermatologist familiar with dh. Thanks for the input.
    • DH can look like that but other things can as well. It would help if you described the way it acts/presents. You can get a dh biopsy. Read threads in this section to find out how the biopsy is done correctly. 
    • my celiac was triggered by pregnancy.  had no clue.  symptoms creeped up (started with indigestion, deemed as 'colitis' or 'ibs') but eventually all the ones you mentioned above all joined the party.  sounds like you are headed in the right direction.  one of the points of diagnosis is the reaction to the gluten-free diet.  keep digging.  half the people on here don't have a firm diagnosis (science really needs to catch up with this disease)  and a false negative blood test is fairly common, for whatever reason - if you've not been eating gluten every day for like 8 weeks, it may not detect antibodies, which is what these tests are measuring.  sorry you're having this dilemma!  hope you find some answers.
