Here is the email I recieved from Red Lobster. I do like that they tell us when to check back with them so we know when this list is outdated. Also be sure to email them so you get the lastest update. I was interested in the Endless Shrimp they are featuring now.

I will question the cheesecake. Not so sure that's really gluten free.

The fact that they put cheesecake on there would make me question the whole list. Most cheesecake has a Graham cracker crust. If they think that is gluten-free, then who knows what other mistakes hey have on the menu above. Maybe you could send a message back for clarification.

Just looked at the website and the pic of the cheesecake looks like it has no crust.

Cheesecake would be iffy because of the crust but true cheesecake is crustless, it's baked to form a crust by itself.

Buffalo wings, if made the true way would also be gluten-free. Baked chicken wings tossed in red-hot sauce (Tabasco) and butter shouldn't be an issue.

Red Lobster used to be connected to General Mills. It doesn't surprise me they are doing more with a gluten free menu.

ya- buffalo wings could totally be fine- it just depends on how each place makes it- but it can be done.

some blue cheese is made with wheat, and some is not.

i hope this list is accurate- if so,im a very verry happy girl... and Red Lobster's 1000 island has always been my favorite!!! :P

The ingredients of real Buffalo Wings are gluten-free. The problem is always the shared fryer. Traditionally they are deep fried and then coated in a sauce made from butter and tabasco. It drives me nuts when places bother to list stuff from shared fryers. Don't they understand that it's not even remotely gluten-free or safe??? Don't put a * by it on your stupid menu. Take it off the list.

Thanks for posting, though. I didn't think there was anything at all that I could eat there. Salad, garlic shrimp scampi, and mashed potatoes with cheesecake for dessert sounds like a perfectly lovely meal. :)

if we're not sensitive to cross contamination- is it ok? or are we still damaging our villi??

AND- ya- it was nice to see when i went to PeiWei that they are educated & serious, and use a brand new fryer for gluten free orders :)

It's not OK. All the good dietitian celiac sites say to avoid foods from shared fryers.

I've gotten sick from "shared fryer" french fries. I can't find any information as far as gluten testing on french fries, but my body says they sometimes contain quite a bit of gluten.

I have heard that gluten is damaging us even if we don't feel it. For some, it might take a good amount of damage before it " hurts". Its like a leaky roof. Some peoples roofs leak and drip on them while they are in bed and it's obvious, right away, the damage that is occurring. Some roofs leak and the water goes down inside the walls. It gets moldy and months later your house is condemned.

i do know that it can damage us even if we dont feel a reaction...

i was just curious because i see people on here discuss using different collanders & cooking tools because of CC...

and i dont know- maybe i have additional reactions to other carbs... but im WONDERING if there's more gluten in "gluten free" flours & treats than in cross contamination in a fryer or kitchen???

idk

I've had their cheesecake. It is crustless and gluten free. For the main meal I had their grilled chicken, broccoli and mashed potatoes. It was a nice meal and no glutening. I think they cooked the chicken in a separate pan. I've eaten at two different Red Lobsters and had great success at both. Both times the servers checked everything carefully with the manager and could answer all my questions about preparation. I was very suspicious they were just cutting the crust off the cheesecake but they weren't. It really was crustless and gluten free.

Haven't you ever cleaned out a fryer that's had a lot of breading in it? There's usually a solid layer of crumbs on the bottom and bits of breading floating everywhere in the oil. The heat convection and bubbling in the fryer keeps the crumbs nicely suspended during cooking too. I can't imagine foods that come out of a restaurant fryer that's had onion rings or breaded foods in it all day are consistently below 20 ppm. Judging by how sick I've gotten from french fries sometimes when I was first learning the diet, I'd say there can sometimes be a LOT of gluten on fries.

I agree with you about more typical kitchen CC vs. our 10-20 ppm "gluten-free" treats. I replaced my cutting boards, but to be honest they needed replacing. Of course some people do react to the "gluten-free" baked treats too. I imagine they're the ones needing to worry about kitchen CC and everything else.

Go ahead and enjoy the cheesecake. It is crustless. Here is the email I received today:

September 10, 2010

Dear xxxx,

Thank you for your interest in Red Lobster; it is always a pleasure to hear from our guests.

I have researched your inquiry regarding the New York Style Cheesecake and learned that it is crustless.

Again, thank you for taking the time to contact us.

i only deep fried at home once- tried to make my own onion rings with rice flour. i didnt pay attention to how the crumbs mess with everything... but thanks for explaining.

i dont have gluten reactions to "gluten free" treats- but ive had an allergic reaction to one of Kinninnick's mixes.. and i generally feel FAT if i eat sugar & carbs.

i am however PARANOID- with all the recent articles ive seen on how they found 1000ppm of gluten in "gluten free" flours... maybe not the labeled ones.. idk.. but i remember they mentioned Soy flour- and i used to love to bake with Soy flour :(

This is the best explanation I have ever seen! It definitely helps explain that people are all different, but still the same. Thanks for this.
