Red Lobster Ingredients

This is an ingredient list for the garlic sauce they use on the shrimp scampi. The guy was so nice there that he cut it off the box for me. :)

Garlic powder, maltodextrin, salt, onion powder, hydrolyzed soy protein, torula yeast, dehydrated parsley, malic acid, sugar, natural and artificial flavor (maltodextrin, butter oil), with not more than 2% silicon dioxide added as an anti-caking agent. Contains: Milk, Soy.

I've ordered the shrimp scampi several times and have had no problems. I usually order the crab legs which are just steamed, shrimp scampi, and a plain baked potato.

Thanks so much for posting this! It's nice to know that there is at least one reasonable option at Red Lobster!

Does the viola in your name mean that you play viola?

Ugh...I ordered it too and had a mild reaction...I don't know if it was the maltodextrin or the soy...knowing me, it was probably the soy...

The maltodextrin would not be an issue. In the US, if it were wheat derived, the ingredient list would have to disclose wheat. Since it did not, you can safely assume that it was corn based. I have never heard of a verified case of wheat-derived maltodextrin in North America. In any event, it is so highly processed that there is no detectable gluten in the finished maltodextrin.

No, I would guess it wasn't the maltodextrin either, but I must say I am confused as to what it was...and this is the worst I have felt stomach wise since going gluten free a week ago. I am thinking it has to be the soy protein or the butter (although I'm not entirely sure if that's pure butter or not).

Ahh yes, after doing a little research it seems as though hydrolized soy protein is connected to MSG...so that may be the issue..

The original thread is from 2008 and that is 4 years ago.... there is no way to tell if that is the original ingredient list, or if the restaurant has changed it during the elapsed time interval. Or the suppliers have changed the source of ingredients... there is that "natural flavorings" which can be anything, again. While their latest pdf download from the RL site said this entree did not have wheat, most of their menu does, :blink: and they say there is always a chance cross contamination from shared work surfaces. You also do not know what the restaurant does in terms of food prep for a gluten free item - it is going to vary from location to location, and depend on how skilled the chefs and prep are in the kitchen, plus does the waiter/waitress communicate that order to them accurately. I've been in chain restaurants where we ordered gluten free and the waiter seemed to get it, then they return with a loaf of bread and butter they have just sliced... besides telling them we really don't want the bread :ph34r:because we need the entire order to be gluten free, one then wonders just where their hands have been before they did your beverages. I had a pro chef tell me years ago to never order/eat anything in a restaurant that was prepared or served with generic "melted butter," because it was so likely to be cross contaminated because of how they treated the "melted butter" pot, dipping in and out of it, throwing stuff like oil and butter into it to replenish it, etc, it just wouldn't be treated as a source that needed to be kept free of grain contamination. :(

On top of what Peter and Takala said - MSG does not contain gluten nor does soy.

Yes, I know that MSG doesn't contain gluten...and I know soy doesn't...I was talking about other food intolerances which I am trying to figure out now and wondering whether it might be another ingredient in it (since gluten is not in this) that might have bothered me.

Thank you for this - I agree the chance for CC was likely high. That is interesting regarding the melted butter...I will remember that and avoid it in the future!

    • Today was the big day when I went to the GI and this is the first time I have felt heard about and well taken care of.  I told him about the two celiac blood tests  (in my first post) normal, he said that often happens, even with people who do have celiac and he needed to see the report and pictures from my endoscope.    I had filled out the appropriate Kaiser paperwork for Sutter to send all my medical records, but they ended up sending a celiac disease to me with the records, which Sutter said they could not use.  We also talked about gluten sensitivity v. celiac, and he said a lot of people are sensitive to gluten even if they don't have celiac. He said that my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which can be caused by any number of things.  He asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which limits certain foods and requires no gluten due to what being He said my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which he said can be caused by any number of things, including gluten sensitivity.  He has asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which has restricted foods as well as no gluten because most gluten products have wheat in them.  So, since I am planning on going gluten free anyway, and I don't want another endoscope or blood tests if absolutely necessary, I am going to try the FODMAP diet and see what happens. I filled a consent form at the GI office today to have all my records sent to him so he can view the endoscope pathology report and photos.  I have an appointment with a Registered Dietician on September 30, and follow up appointment the GI in 4 months. 
    • gluten-free andee, according to an article on celiac.com  that talks about this subject see this link http://www.celiac.com/articles/24406/1/Celiac-Diease-and-Other-Autoimmune-Diseases-Equals-Low-Inflammatory-Diet/Page1.html Quoting the author "In the author's personal experience, a gluten-free diet has many limitations. The reactivity between alpha gliadin and corn, millet, oats, rice and dairy has been denounced as invalid by gastroenterologists and celiac disease researchers. While at a medical school in Missouri, biopsies did not show improvement in villous atropy until all alpha gliadin sources and corn, millet, rice and oats were removed from the diet."  Note this research is two years old but hilites the problem with non-gluten rice protein that you are having. It is the alpha gliadin sources that it causing the cross reactivity you are experiencing when you eat rice protein's. She says quoting "Celiac disease has gotten the most attention in antibody research, but the current data on cross-reactivity of antibodies is allowing a better understanding of gluten sensitivity. Antigen reactivity to alpha-gliadin can trigger immune attacks on many individuals beyond those with positive DQ 2, DQ 8 and TTG test results. She goes on to say "A low inflammatory diet customized to each person through testing for cross-reactivity or elimination diet protocols is needed to restore a state of health and well-being."  which sounds exactly like what you are doing. If you are still having problems after elminating rice a 30 day elimination of all the alpha gliadin proteins might be in order.  Corn is a common reactivity problem I hear with a gluten allergy from my friends as well as the obvious lactose problems that can be common among celiacs.  But rarely do you hear Rice allergy's brought up in context of a gluten allergy. I am glad you are making progress on finding your triggers. Read the whole article for yourself to see if there are nuggets of truth I did not highlight in my response. I hope this is helpful. Good luck on your journey to health. Posterboy,
    • One other thing - you might be able to tolerate some dairy if it's only the FODMAPs problem. I discovered that many cheese such as cheddar have effectively no lactose. And my wife sometimes makes 24 hour yoghurt, which also has effectively no lactose. Those have been fine for my tummy.
    • I'm new to the forum, so this topic may already have been covered....please forgive me, if that's the case.  I am in the beginning stages of guiding the development of a 504 plan to file for my 6th-grade daughter who was diagnosed with Celiac Disease 2 weeks ago. The diagnosis was made with a biopsy. My first question...A 504 is what's necessary....not just the IHCP, correct or no? I have the Physician's Statement & the Medical Evaluation report from our GI specialist. What else do I need to have at the ready? The team has requested we go ahead and write the IHCP & then include it with the 504.  And my second question...What accommodations have others found relevant to include on the IHCP  & 504? I just watched a 504-Plan webinar I found on this forum & it recommends the following: -access to gluten-free food in classroom & cafeteria - excused absence from activities that use gluten-containing foods or materials -  prevent cross-contamination in school food service - use of microwave to heat personal meals -  bathroom priveleges Is there anything I need to consider adding? My daughter does prefer eating school meals rather than packing a lunch from home & I am concerned about special events, overnight field trips etc. My learning curve is steep. What am I missing? Teach me, please & thanks so much! This forum has already helped me tremendously these past few weeks.
