I was wondering what celiacs have been getting at Burger King recently, and if you would be willing to share that with me. I have not checked in awhile. The website lists food with allergens, but only wheat is a common allergen so I am not sure about the food containing other no-no's for celiac patients. Thanks!!

The Burger king across the street from my work has a huge poster on the wall listing all thier ingredients and allergens. I have only ordered french fries, after discussing dedicated fryers with the manager. I'm also going to check every time I go that they didn't fry anything else in there that day. Not that I go to BK often, but every now and then I gotta have a french fry.

At BK you're not going to get hidden barley or rye (I've never seen hidden rye anywhere). All you really need to worry about is the wheat.

BK is pretty good about accomodating me when I ask for a burger with no bun. They fix it in a small bowl, and make sure there were no crumbs first. My only complaint is that one time, I asked for a regular whopper with no bun, and was charged double for it because it was an Atkins-friendly "meal". You just have to be careful and ask!!

I should have mentioned that a dedicated fryer can mean different things to different companies. A while back BK used to rotate the oil in their fryers so although nothing but fries were being cooked in their dedicated fryer on a particular day, it could be that the oil was from a fryer that cooked onion rings the day before. The people at headquarters were doing spot checks in different locations to make sure this was not happening, but it was. I have gotten onion rings in my fries there many times, even when told the fryers were dedicated. I think some people just do not know what it means.It is hard because the stores are all independently owned. Anyway, I like McDonalds much better so I did not go to BK much after hearing about this problem. But sometime there are no McDonalds around so I was wondering what other gluten-free people ate there.

No matter what any resturant says about gluten-free items, the oil friers are probably the easiest place for gluten-free-foods (ie french fries) to get gluten. Personaly I just do not get deep fried foods while out, have my own frier for that at home. If you do want to risk it, thats fine, but I HIGHLY advise you grill the heck out of them about the oil. Most french fries (I do not know of any expections??) are gluten-free before they get in the oil...

Yesterday, I had a Whopper with Cheese and no bun, and french fries. I was so sick last night, and I thought it was the fries, but reading here, we can have them. There must have been cross-contamination in the fryer...

I was a huge BK eater before I found out I had celiac disease. Now I usually only order fries and diet coke-less calories anyway. They also have garden salads with grilled chicken breast that I've eaten and not gotten sick from. The dressing is gluten-free also, if you get the ranch dressing.

Yeah, I'm not to sure about that A&W list, they also have popcorn shrimp, and "breaded fish" as not having gluten... hmm

I think I may have to send them an email. Here's the link if anyone else wants to bug them about it too...
