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

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
