I am always trying to find a similar thing myself. I get the burning stomach, but it lasts longer than just a day and night. And it will go when I eat really carefully but if I get overconfident and have something like chocolate then my stomach goes off again. Not that there's anything gluten about the chocolate, just the actual chocolate itself, which is normally not a problem causes me trouble.

I try to eat carefylly by eating well cooked veggies and fruit, rice or rice bread, and fish like salmon when I'm trying to get over getting contaminated. I have recently tried out drugs like Pepcid and Tagament but I am not sure I find they do much.

I do take a supplement called DGL Licorice and drink licorice or marshmallow teas, they seem to help my stomach, by coating it before I eat. So those are thoughts. No good hard and fast way to get over it, though, unfortunately...

Be sure you check to see if a fryer is used to fry anything other than fries. Most places stick chicken strips (breaded) or onion rings (breaded) into the same fryers as the fries. As for a remedy, try immodium, or Tums, or Pepto B. Read the ingredients on Tums, though. I think some flavors have starch. How about good old 7up? Or peppermint tea (Celestial seasonings is gluten-free- It says right on the bottom of the box. Good luck.

Whenever you oder fries, you have to ask if the fryer is a "dedicated fryer". They'll probably look at you like you have three heads. Nevermind. Ask them if they cook any breaded products AT ALL...ANY>> in the fryer. This will "contaminate" your fries. Most places DO fry their breaded chicken, breaded onions, etc in the french fry oil. That could be the problem.

I have the Tums with flavors, and they have "Corn Starch" in them.. Is that OK?

DO NOT take Tums. They are not gluten free. They told me that they can't guarantee them to be gluten free but others were told that they actually have gluten in them.
Corn Starch is fine and would not be a problem but other ingreidents may pose a threat.

Pepto Bismol is gluten free and really works for me so that may be something to try

Hi,

The French Fries have to be cooked in a separate frying basket from other fried foods (onion rings, chicken wings, etc.)

DEFINITELY AVOID TUMS. I am still recovering from being glutened by them last Tuesday (7 days ago.) How lame is it the med you take for you stomach actually makes it worse!

I'll bet the fryer was to blame. I don't eat fries so I didn't even think of that. I hope you're feeling better.

Like everyone else, I bet it was the fries. I just wanted to add that when you order anything grilled, make sure to ask if the buns are grilled in the same place on the grill as the meat. This could be a source of contamination, too.

For my upset stomachs, I have found these Peppermint gels with fennel and ginger that are really soothing and there is a lavendar and chamomile tea that works really well. You ought to be able to find both tthese things at a health food store and maybe even the health food section of your local grocery store.
