Taco Bell

8 posts in this topic

I looked on Taco Bell's website and on the Sensitivities page, it lists Red Sauce as containing no gluten or wheat. But on the Ingredients page, it states that Red Sauce contains Yeast Extract (Contains Gluten). UGH! Does anyone know whether it actually contains gluten?

Yeast extract is gluten-free, unless something foreign is added to it. It does, however, contain MSG which is often mistakenly thought to contain gluten.

Why, if your gluten-free would you eat Taco Bell? Too mush of CC in that place for me. Make the tacos @ home.

There isn't much gluten free at Taco Bell as it stands...I'd probably find another dining option!

Yeast extract is usually safe but if Taco Bell states it contains gluten I sure wouldn't eat it. Why on earth would you take the chance?

Agree with Skylark. I'd stay away from it. Personally, now that there's a Qdoba AND Chipotle within 10 minutes of me, Taco Bell just does not appeal to me any more.

Some of us are not as fortunate as you are, Goof. Taco Bell is it around here.

According to my eating out app the only two things that are safe at Taco bell are the pinto beans and rice. I know from personal experience that the meat has gluten in it. I stay away from there since there's nothing I can eat.

    • You already have an autoimmune condition which does put you at a higher likelihood of developing other conditions in the future, not necessarily celiac.  At any rate, I've been reading reports-- both research articles and anecdotal experiences from AI patients-- linking a gluten free diet with relief of symptoms, particularly a lessening of joint and muscle pain in those with RA, FMS, Lupus, and Chronic Fatigue.  So my point is, even if you don't have celiac disease, if being on a gluten free diet helps you, then stay on it.  As for the digestive issues, it may be worth seeing a GI for.  Lots of things can cause tummy troubles, not just celiac disease.
    • It is absolutely possible for non-Celiac gluten intolerance and/or gluten sensitivity to cause extreme symptoms. The difference between those and Celiac is that Celiac will cause actual small intestinal damage to the villi, while NCGI/gluten sensitivity can have extreme symptoms, there is no damage to the small intestine.  Other causes of bloating can be SIBO or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.  The title pretty much says it all and you need antibiotics to help combat that. Basically, your small intestine's bacteria is out of whack and you have more bad bacteria than good. I know there is a test but have no experience with this. You may want to google it and read up on it and maybe ask a specialist about it too?  This is something they should be testing for anyway to figure out what is going on.  You could also have food allergies, as opposed to an intolerance like Celiac.  You can see why this is so hard to figure out sometimes! Are you sure you are completely gluten free?  This diet has a big learning curve and cross contamination is important.  Please take a look, if you already have not, at this link.  It was written by a previous member of the forum and although it is a bit lengthy, it is what you need to know about following the diet and living gluten free successfully. She did a very good job on it!  Even tiny amounts in your diet can still cause symptoms. http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ Have you been tested for vitamin deficiencies or anemia?  These could offer a clue to see whether you are malnourished or not. Many people with celiac have both deficiencies and anemia.  Between testing for these and genetic testing to see if you carry a Celiac gene might help you to rule it out if you cannot have a scope done.  But you do remember that you need to be eating gluten for the scope? 
    • Celiac disease is a tricky rascal. Just when you think you've got it under control, it sneaks up and manifests into new and often unexpected problems. At least, this is what we have found over the last decade. From contacts with others who have Celiac disease, we know we're not alone. I'm in my early thirties and find that sometimes my body acts more like that of an old man's. View the full article
    • Thank you, Gemini.   Is it possible for non-celiac gluten sensitivity or intolerance to have this severe symptoms?
      I'm on gluten free diet two weeks now and no change... What are other causes of these symptoms beside food?
    • I am trying to decipher the test and it looks to me like the Total IgA is fine.  Your number appears to be in the middle of the reference range, which would be sufficient IgA for testing.  I am in America so your country's testing is a bit different from here....I really hope I got that right!  If you have severe enough symptoms of a GI problem, some doctors here would move onto a biopsy even with negative blood results.  I think if you cannot get a full Celiac panel done, then a scope with biopsy should come next. Severe bloating has a cause and they need to rule out a food problem. There can be other causes but food is usually a big trigger. Yes, keep us updated!  We are here to help.
