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.

    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I'm ok, just a little tired right now.  Lots of stress getting elderly parents and in-laws taken care of. My thyroid took a dip low (no surprise there) so I had to increase dose by a quarter grain. Overall, I am not dragging all day but waking up and getting going in the morning is slowwwwwwwww.  I'm sure you understand that! Yeah........Barty.  I thought of her for DAYS on end and it just saddens me to no end that such good people are the ones being taken.  Sometimes life is just so unfair. We all know that but there are times when it really hits you in the gut. There are times I think they are the lucky ones with the way the world is going these days. This terrorism plague is unnerving and I am really getting mad about it. Dear God, please stop this shyte!  I also miss nvsmom and others who have not been heard from. I hope she is feeling better and is just busy with life.  I got glutened on vacation about 6 years ago on the first day in Liverpool.  Jeez, was I sick!  I know how you feel but take heart........that was the last time I was bagged on vacation.  The longer you are gluten free and heal, the faster you recover from hits. You also get very good at not being glutened. It has been almost 2 years since it happened to me last so after 11 years gluten-free, I think I am doing well with that. I still have a little work to do with the vitamin D levels but I work so seeing much sun isn't happening.  My levels have doubled but they are still under 50. This whole Celiac thing is a part time job!

      Hang in there SLLRUNNER...it is hard and frustrating.  Good job getting that appointment moved up.  I've done too...I've called daily looking for cancellations.  I can also remember counting down the days until my appointment.  ((((Hugs)))) and please let us know how it goes.
    • So I've been glutened....
      Miso soup has gluten in it, doesn't it? =/ I know that I've been avoiding it, which is a big shame because I adore miso!
    • Kissing and gluten
      Hi guys. I know this is a topic that has come up before, but I'd appreciate a little bit of advice. I've been 'courting' a guy for the past few months; nothing has happened yet but we have a proper date in a few weeks which is likely to lead to kissing. He didn't even know what a ceoliac was until a few days ago; I don't think he'd caught the hints that I'd been dropping beforehand. English isn't his first language - he's east Asian. Anyway, I've heard about being potentially glutened via a kiss. How do I broach this? I don't want to scare him off or make him think that I'm a lot of hard work; I know, I know, he's going to have to accept me as I am, etc. but for someone new to the entire thing, it is likely overwhelming. It would be for me if I'd never heard of it! Do I laughingly bring it up beforehand? We aren't going for food so if he isn't eating, just having a cup of tea, will I still need to be careful? If this seems safe, do I just let him kiss me and then bring up afterwards that any future kisses after food will have different precautions?  It all feels so clinical! He's a lovely guy so I do think he'll be understanding, but if anyone has any advice of first hand experience on how to approach the topic without it being a weird moment, that would be great.  
    • gluten-free...how long til I feel better?
      Hi there.  I had been sick for over a year and decided to try and go off gluten within 4 weeks i started to feel better than i had for so long! But my problem is now i test negative for celiac because i have no gluten in my body. I have been told to go back on gluten so it can be determined if i have it or not but im not willing to go back to feeling that sick again!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
