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!

    • Newbie Mom - How is my son feeling?
      I know there has been a lot of suggestions to go and talk to you doctor already - so I am on repeat - to get the best / accurate results - gluten should be eaten prior to the scope being done.    I hope that you can get/ or already have been able to get the appointment bumped up  - keep calling the doctors office and keep pressing them to move your appointment closer - I have appointments move up many times! 
    • What do I even do now?
      Hi, Lacey.    Sounds like you have tried  a lot.   I just read the post that you have tried some of Dr. Axe's suggestions - that is great to see that they are helping!   Have you done any specific work before with any of the other practitioners to specifically heal the gut?    Keep us posted on the Dr. Axe protocol and don't hesitate to reach out if you have any Q's! 
    • Silent Celiac or Non-digestive symptoms
      O I feel your Migraine pain!  That was my one and only symptoms for YEARS and YEARS..... until one day finally it all turned into tummy problems and joint issues, (the list goes on and on...)   Often you will notice your "main" symptom/s appear pretty soon after eating gluten (some its minutes, others its a day or so..).  Following the proper diet strictly you should be able to drastically reduce those pains in head.  Vitamin deficiency isn't likely to happen after one episode of being glutened - it is usually accumulative of your body not being able to absorb the nutrients (because of the damage done by gluten over time).  Have you had your vitamin levels currently checked?  (Bringing certain vitamins / minerals back into balance can help alleviate the migraines faster!)     
    • Newbie: mother to coeliac kids
      How scary to watch your child go through what you have seen.  I wish you huge luck with both biopsies.      In urge before you and your daughter go gluten free - celiac can also be "silent" - and it is very common and normal to run in direct relatives- I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND you and your other children (even your spouse) seeking appropriate testing BEFORE going on a gluten free diet in support!   I was 17 when I was diagnosed - and although your son is feeling the way he is, and it will be an adjustment period, he will figure out how to eat with and do normal things with his friends.  Let us know how the biopsies go!     
    • Weird Reaction
      Flowerqueen, I usually tolerate coffee pretty well and my DNA profile said I was a fast metaboliser of coffee but I have to do a fasted blood test on Tuesday morning so I won't be able to have coffee til much later than normal. I'll see if it makes a difference. The shaking isn't actually physically shaking so nobody would be able to tell but it's a shakey type feeling if you know what I mean. And usually when I'm nauseas I look pale but I don't with this type of nausea. I had a few buckwheat pancakes earlier with some maple syrup, gluten-free ice-cream and LSA and felt a bit better straight after that but the nausea returned not long after that with fast heartbeat and anxiety and burping. This thing is terrible. I have no appetite at all. I feel a bit tired and even speaking feels a bit funny.....weird!! All this is still normal though, right??

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
