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 :)

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
