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.

    • Yes like a protein powder. I visit a local store there is so many brands and on every brand have write gluten free.that's way I confused which one is best any suggestions ! 
    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.

    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
