Anything breaded will have gluten.

Ian's makes gluten-free nuggets. They also make gluten nuggets, so be careful when you buy. I buy them at Wild Oats.

Bell & Evans make the best gluten-free chicken nuggets...BY FAR! They taste just like the Tyson nuggets. My son wouldn't touch the Ian's chicken nuggets. Not to offend those who like them, but they taste similar to someone wrapping a stale corn tortilla around a piece of chicken. :ph34r:

My favorite meal is homemade nuggets. I take equal parts sorghum, buckwheat, and millet flours and pour in a bag. Cut up breast meat chicken, soak in buttermilk for 10 mins. Then toss in the bad, shake, put in a skillet with some hot olive oil (just enough to cover the bottom) and cook, turning, sprinkling salt, pepper, and garlic powder while they cook.

If you do it just right, they get a killer crunchy crust on them. Very delicious. I make a garlic mayo dijon mustard dip.... (drooling)

I am sorry. I was not being mean. I am still new at this too. But Mc D's was my daughters favorite food and was told NO WAY it is way contaminated.. Didn't mean to yell. I meant it as a warning.

Really, I am truly sorry.

Good Luck. :D

P.s. you should look and find out if there is a ROCK group where you live. They have been wonderful help and support for us.

Would there be a reason the grilled chicken salad at Burger King would not be okay? The heated packet the chicken comes in says "contains soy," and all the dressings are Ken's that I have checked out online and read the labels for.

There are mixed reviews about grilled chicken at McDonald's because of some sort of marinate or filler or something, I can't remember exactly. I haven't heard anything about the Grilled Chicken at Burger King though, the risk of CC would obviously be extremely high. Might be worth checking out though!

I was recently informed that in Canada Mcdonalds uses corn for breading their McNuggets. Anybody else hear of this?

This is from the McDonalds website in USA. The McD Canadian website is hard to figure out, I simply wouldn't count on it being different. There isn't any way I could figure out to get menu ingredients on the ".ca" site. I thought I had found it once and my browser crashed. I found a page that talked about fat content and info for diabetics, but not anything for allergens or ingredients.... Maybe you heard that they were fried in Corn Oil?

Chicken McNuggets® (4 piece):

White boneless chicken, water, food starch-modified, salt, seasoning [autolyzed yeast extract, salt, wheat starch, natural flavoring (botanical source), safflower oil,

dextrose, citric acid], sodium phosphates, natural flavor (botanical source). Battered and breaded with: water, enriched flour (bleached wheat flour, niacin, reduced

iron, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), yellow corn flour, bleached wheat flour, food starch-modified, salt, leavening (baking soda, sodium acid

pyrophosphate, sodium aluminum phosphate, monocalcium phosphate, calcium lactate), spices, wheat starch, dextrose, corn starch.

CONTAINS: WHEAT.

Prepared in vegetable oil (Canola oil, corn oil, soybean oil, hydrogenated soybean oil with TBHQ and citric acid added to preserve freshness). Dimethylpolysiloxane

added as an antifoaming agent.

    • It is absolutely possible for non-Celiac gluten intolerance and/or gluten sensitivity to cause extreme symptoms. The difference between those and Celiac is that Celiac will cause actual small intestinal damage to the villi, while NCGI/gluten sensitivity can have extreme symptoms, there is no damage to the small intestine.  Other causes of bloating can be SIBO or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.  The title pretty much says it all and you need antibiotics to help combat that. Basically, your small intestine's bacteria is out of whack and you have more bad bacteria than good. I know there is a test but have no experience with this. You may want to google it and read up on it and maybe ask a specialist about it too?  This is something they should be testing for anyway to figure out what is going on.  You could also have food allergies, as opposed to an intolerance like Celiac.  You can see why this is so hard to figure out sometimes! Are you sure you are completely gluten free?  This diet has a big learning curve and cross contamination is important.  Please take a look, if you already have not, at this link.  It was written by a previous member of the forum and although it is a bit lengthy, it is what you need to know about following the diet and living gluten free successfully. She did a very good job on it!  Even tiny amounts in your diet can still cause symptoms. http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ Have you been tested for vitamin deficiencies or anemia?  These could offer a clue to see whether you are malnourished or not. Many people with celiac have both deficiencies and anemia.  Between testing for these and genetic testing to see if you carry a Celiac gene might help you to rule it out if you cannot have a scope done.  But you do remember that you need to be eating gluten for the scope? 
    • Celiac disease is a tricky rascal. Just when you think you've got it under control, it sneaks up and manifests into new and often unexpected problems. At least, this is what we have found over the last decade. From contacts with others who have Celiac disease, we know we're not alone. I'm in my early thirties and find that sometimes my body acts more like that of an old man's. View the full article
    • Thank you, Gemini.   Is it possible for non-celiac gluten sensitivity or intolerance to have this severe symptoms?
      I'm on gluten free diet two weeks now and no change... What are other causes of these symptoms beside food?
    • I am trying to decipher the test and it looks to me like the Total IgA is fine.  Your number appears to be in the middle of the reference range, which would be sufficient IgA for testing.  I am in America so your country's testing is a bit different from here....I really hope I got that right!  If you have severe enough symptoms of a GI problem, some doctors here would move onto a biopsy even with negative blood results.  I think if you cannot get a full Celiac panel done, then a scope with biopsy should come next. Severe bloating has a cause and they need to rule out a food problem. There can be other causes but food is usually a big trigger. Yes, keep us updated!  We are here to help.
