Taco Bell

7 posts in this topic

Does anyone know if Taco Bell has a gluten free menu? Or Baja Fresh? Haven't been able to get this info. I've seen the postings about Red Lobster - my daughter has eaten at a few different ones with no problems. She orders the salad - and though it's an appetizer, it's big enough for dinner - the nacho platter. She orders plain nachos, nothing on them and on a different plate, the shrimp and lobster. (I think it also comes with chicken if you want). The shrimp and lobster are in a light scampi-type sauce).

Taco Bell is hopeless. About all we can have is the beans and cheese and you can suck the taco sauce out of the packets. That's about it. The chips are contaminated and the taco beef has wheat in it.

I think Baja Fresh is more helpful. They say to contact them for info on dietary restrictions.

Many, many of the fast-food type places have a gluten-free list or a file that lists ALL ingredients at their web site. Be careful of cross contamination, though. At Red Lobster, make sure they don't fry those chips in contaminated oil.

Just for information, when I had the scampi sauce I got sick and I guess for the resturant I went to they used flour to thicken the sauce.

Baja Fresh is great. Contact them and they will let you know what you can eat. I always get the tres tacos shrimp and have never had a reaction. I also have their chips and guacamole (so good)!

From what I understand about Taco Bell...the tostada and pintos and cheese are safe...that's it. I haven't been to Taco Bell in ages, but I think their Nachos are made out of flour and not corn.

Be cautious, the Taco Sauce in this area (Florida) has SOY SAUCE in it. I'm assuming it would be the same all over.

Good luck

    • My endoscopy showed i had decreased folds in my duodenum. The biopsy came back and showed that my villi were fine... i have been on a gluten free diet for 6 years because i was just told i was intolerant but never had any testing before. when i eat gluten i get sick for 2 weeks. i came down with issues of other foods in march so they were trying to figure out why and wanted to know if i had celiac are not because that would explain why dairy and fructose are a problem.. both intolerant test for both were negative but the fructose test made me extremely sick but it was negative...      Im trying to figure out why i have decreased  folds in the first place. my Gi doctor is stumped on that to why the endoscopy would show damage but the under the microscope are fine. She is going to call the dr who did my scope and then is supposed to get back to  me..    would being gluten free for 6 year make it so there was damage and then my vili are now fine but still cant be seen in the endoscope?
    • Spicely Organics has both cassia and true (Ceylon) Cinnamon and are certifed gluten free along with the rest of their spices, as to tea Republic of Tea has most of their products tested and certified gluten-free also. You can visit their sites or try Amazon.
    • Thanks for replying. I have been a vegetarian for 31 years, I guess my diet now means I am a vegan but not by choice. Blood tests have picked up a lack of protein and I have seen a dietician who said she couldn't help me and referred me to a specialist who deals with IBS, which I don't understand as I don't have that.   I don't know my blood glucose levels but I think I will find out. I know Hashimoto's and type 1 diabetes is common in Celiac's, I asked my doctor for a thyroid antibodies test but he refused but I'll ask for the type 1 diabetes antibodies test. Thanks again.
    • Hi thanks for this. The kidney function test I a few weeks ago came back normal but there was a question mark over ketones, they said it was all okay, then last week the doctor rang me as there was ketones in a urine sample and I have to repeat the test next week. I'm a bit confused if they weren't worried about the blood test.   I feel for your brother, that sounds awful what he's been through. I have started to get some pain in the leg that is permanently numb, I really hope I find some answers soon. Thanks again.
    • I haven't seen my gastroenterologist for a few years.  I was diagnosed celiac and have been gluten free for more than 5 years.  I've been having trouble again for the past 6 months or so.  I've done a full elimination diet and have come up with the culprit - eggs!   I did a search of the forum here and have found it's not uncommon for people with celiac to develop a sensitivity to eggs.     I can forego eating eating eggs but It's getting to be flu season.  I was planning on getting my flu shot today, as usual, at work.  The pre-shot questionnaire asks if I have an allergy to eggs.  As, I have never been tested, I don't know if this is really an "allergy".   I asked the nurse about it.  She said that if I do have an allergy to eggs,  it could be dangerous to get the vaccine.   So, I didn't ended up not getting the vaccine.  Anyone else in this boat.   Has anyone actually been tested for egg allergy?   Any advice as it pertains to the flu vaccine?
