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.

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back.
