Has anyone eaten at Wendy's lately? If so what did you get? I'm hitting the road with my Dad tomorrow for the day and we'll need to grab a quick lunch. I'm also overly cautious with eating out, I hate to be sick. But my Dad will need to eat and he refuses to eat in front of me. It doesn't bother me lol but he can't stand to do that. Hope someone has some ideas!

I usually get a baked potato (unsliced) with butter and sour cream and a small side of chilli with cheese, sour cream and hot sauce. Several salads are gluten free...see below.

What I noticed at some of the Wendy's is say "allergic to wheat'. Even the ones who don't speak a lot of English seem to understand. One of them said not to have the cheese today because they had a reason to thnk it wasn't safe that day. She couldn't explain it but I think someone dropped a bun or something. I get the chilli and put it on the potato. The butter and sour cream are pre-packaged. Tell the allergy so they don't open the potatoe with thier gluteny fingers.

A helpful, local manager told me that they might slice some gluten items and then slice the potato.

I've only been gluten free for 3 weeks now and went to Wendy's twice. The firt time I just got a baked potato with butter. That night I had a reaction, but couldn't figure out why. The second time I got chili and brought my own gluten free corn bread and used their butter on it. Had the same reaction. After going to their web site, I noticed that there was an asterisk after the butter spread, noting that it contained maltodextrin. Has anyone else had a reaction to maltodextrin? It seems like some say it's okay, and others say not. I'm afraid to eat anything with it in now. I've noticed several items in the grocery store clearly marked "gluten free", but still contain maltodextrin.

Welcome to the forum!

Maltodextrin is a safe ingredient and is found in many foods.

When we're new to eating gluten-free, our bodies can be pretty wonky and we can seemingly react to most anything and everything.

I haven't eaten at my local wendy's because I saw the cook make burgers,then add chicken to salads. He cut the breaded chicken for a salad and then the grilled chicken on the same counter with the same cutter. I know I could ask to change gloves etc, but I'm worried how the salads were prepared even before the chicken. Has anyone had success with a salad from there?

I can't have the chili because I'm allergic to tomato.

I'm so glad you had a good experience! Those are always very nice :)

    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.  
    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
