McDonald's Fries In Canada? Gluten-Free?
0

7 posts in this topic

I'd like to hear from the experts if McD fries are gluten-free in Canada. I'm just learning now b/c I think we've got a diagnosis on it's way shortly. I thought I had heard they were gluten-free and they were cooked in their own oil not contaminated by any other products but I was recently told by a mom she thought they were coated in flour. Do any of you Canadian's know for sure and do you eat them with no reaction?

Yes, the fries at McDonalds in Canada are gluten-free. They are not coated in anything. They are fried in dedicated fryers which fry only potatoes. I eat them from time to time and have no issues.

Yes Mcdonalds fries are gluten free if they are cooked in a seperate fryer then the gluten stuff. Every Mcdonalds is different so It does not hurt to ask them when you go in. From experience, depending on the location, and how busy they are so I always ask if they are using a seperate fryer for their fries. They are not coated in flour. Enjoy! :)

I called Mc Donalds Canada about six months ago and they told me they are gluten free and are cooked in a dedicated fryer. New York Fries is safe as well.

McDonald's fries are gluten-free? This is very bad news for me!!!! I've been eating a strict diet of fruits, veggies and meat for a month now!

Old topic. But nothing has changed. The fries are done in dedicated fryers, shared only with the breakfast hash browns. They are at the front of the store, and are operated by the window crew (the ones who take your order and payment). Everything else is fried at the back of the store by the grill crew. It is physically impossible to mix up the fryers. They are in a different location operated by different people.

McDonald's are quite vigilant about keeping any contamination out of the oil used for the fries. It has nothing to do with gluten, although we do reap the benefit. If has EVERYTHING to do with making sure that the fries, a signature product, do not have their flavor tainted by anything else.
