Does anyone know if the grilled chicken patties offered at McDonald's is gluten-free? I'm planning a long road trip home soon and was wondering if a quick McD's stop could be possible? Thank you!

McDonald's is a tricky beast......I think most folks choose to stay away from there because of the gluten free items being questionable. I don't know a definite answer about the grilled chicken but I'd stick to Wendy's or Chick-Fil-A or something.

That's the same problem I keep running into with many "ready to go" food items at Central Market (big Whole Foods). The ingredient listed as:

hydrolyzed (corn, soy, wheat) gluten, or hydrolyzed (corn, soy, wheat) protein

I wonder if they really contain all three, or if it's a CYA statement because they don't really know? Really sucks.

best regards, lm

If you want to stop at a fast food place definitely pick Wendys, you can get a baked potato, chili, salad...i get their grilled chicken salad so maybe you could get a piece of grilled chicken there :)

And I didn't know you could get chicken from chick fil a....the grilled chicken patties are gluten-free? I need to look this up! There is one in my mall and it always looks so yummy.

I would say no. Unless they have changed things since I worked there, all burgers, buns, and chicken are heated on the same grill press. My son has Celiac Disease and I would definatly not let him eat that. Espically when you are on the road!

CONTAINS: SOY AND WHEAT.



First of all here is the website to back up what I'm about to say http://nutrition.mcd...edientslist.pdf
Next I'm going to copy and paste from that website the ingred. from the grilled chicken.
Grilled Chicken Fillet:
Chicken breast fillet with rib meat, water, seasoning (rice starch, salt, sugar, yeast extract, canola oil, onion powder, maltodextrin, chicken skin, paprika, flavor,
sunflower oil, chicken, garlic powder, chicken fat, spices), sodium phosphates.
Prepared with Liquid Margarine: Liquid soybean oil and hydrogenated cottonseed and soybean oils, water, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, salt, soy lecithin,
mono-and diglycerides, sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate (preservatives), artificial flavor, citric acid, vitamin A palmitate, beta carotene (color).
CONTAINS: SOY LECITHIN.

Where do you get off posting incorrect information. I hate posts like your because I read it and I think we all stick together no one wants to get glutened no one would wish there symptoms on anyone so what's written here can be trusted infromation. I also work at McDonald's and infact I had a grilled chicken last night while at work and I feel great right now! I think it's great because if you ask for an extra piece of lettuce you can use the lettuce as the bun and pick it up and eat it like that. Also the grilled chicken is made on a grill that is only shared with the folded egg in the morning and the egg is gluten free as well. Folded Egg:
Pasteurized whole eggs, food starch-modified, soybean oil, natural flavors (botanical source), sodium acid pyrophosphate, carrageenan, flavor enhancer [salt,
maltodextrin, natural flavor (plant source), spices, herb, turmeric (color)], monosodium phosphate, citric acid, soy lecithin (release agent). Prepared with Liquid
Margarine: Liquid soybean oil and hydrogenated cottonseed and soybean oils, water, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, salt, soy lecithin, mono-and diglycerides,
sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate (preservatives), artificial flavor, citric acid, vitamin A palmitate, beta carotene (color).
CONTAINS: EGG AND SOY LECITHIN.

So eat the grilled chicken it's yummy and GLUTEN FREE!

Whoa!

The post you are refering to was made in October of 2009. It was probably correct at the time. We are now in July of 2012. Formulas change all the time.

Please watch the dates on product info as ingredients change over the years.

Would have been easier and politer to have said that that info is out of date and here are the current ingredients..

I have eaten their grilled chicken several times in the last few weeks and I was fine. I always get sick if I get even tiny amounts of gluten, so I feel it's pretty safe (at least the one I go to). I imagine there are CC issues at different locations, but the current ingredients list says they are safe.

I'm 26 and work at a gas station, so quick and affordable meals are a commodity in my book. I eat at mcdonald's sometimes as often as twice a week, and have had much better luck avoiding gluten (and getting something I enjoy) there than any other fast food place. Wendy's is cool and all, but the last time I checked their fries were not safe. Also Mcdonald's at least in my area gives much better service.

You might have to be annoying, and if they are really busy I wouldn't risk it but they are usually very accomodating.

just my 2 cents.

I ate at a McD's on a road trip to NYC last year and ended up quite ill. My guess was cc, but it's a risk I took. I learned my lesson, never again! I heavily pack snacks while on road trips now lol that's a scenario I'm not willing to replay! I know some others have had better luck than I, but that's my story. :)

Definitely make sure you look at the dates on the posts before you come onto the site and reprimand someone for posting something that was accurate at that time. My goodness.
