Celiac.com 01/12/2017 - Good gluten-free news for burger fans, especially those with celiac disease.

Popular burger franchise Shake Shack has announced that they will be offering gluten-free buns in all locations, except stadiums and ballparks, for just $1 extra.

The company made the announcement via Twitter.

The buns are made by BellyRite Foods Inc., and taste similar to their Martin's potato rolls currently served on all Shake Shack burgers.

So, if you're gluten-free and craving Shake Shack, you can jump in line with everyone else.

This is just another example of popular restaurants trying to make their food available for gluten-free eaters.

Been to Shake Shack? Tried a gluten-free bun? Let us know how it went.

So the buns will be made by a conventional baking company? Shared equipment or no? Chance of cross contamination? Based on the two times we tried to get bun-less burgers at a Shake Shack and the staff was COMPLETELY CLUELESS I'd say they need to do extensive employee training before they think of offering GF buns or the buns will just an empty gesture.

Hi Mark, The gluten free buns served up at Shake Shack are actually made in a completely gluten free and allergen friendly facility by a company called Bellyrite Foods Inc. Their facility is a dedicated gluten free/allergen friendly facility.

Bellyrite individually wraps every bun to prevent cross contamination for storing and shipping purposes, and to guarantee our product. Once the product leaves the Bellyrite facility it is then down to the company that is using the bun to ensure and inform its customers on how the bun is presented to the end user, and whether there could be cross contamination involved in their food preparation processes. Hope this helps!

I thought the same thing as the other commenter. The buns are pointless unless the staff has been trained to avoid cross-contamination and enforce it. I usually avoid places like this and Red Robin who claim to be gluten free but have no training in place.

Who cares! GF restaurants are a dime a dozen. All I want to know is, is this a celiac safe gluten free restaurant? Will I get sick if I go there? Were you glutened after eating at Shake Shack and now have foggy brain? I hope you feel better soon and and expand on this article.

I'm not sure why there is such cynicism when a major restaurant chain now offers a gluten-free option. Most celiacs are happy to hear about more choices.

The Big Orange in Little Rock serves GF buns by a local GF bakery, Dempsey Bakery. It's nice to have a real sit down burger. I'd try the Shake Shake if the was one in the state.

To the admin, I think the point of the frustrated commenters is that we need more information in your article about whether the buns are made on separate equipment and whether Shake Shack is providing sufficient staff training before we can get excited about a new dining-out option.

They buns used are legally gluten-free in the USA, feel free to contact the company for further details.

I think it's reasonable to trust that the buns, as delivered from the bakery, will be GF. The bigger issue is whether the restaurant staff will understand how things need to be served to avoid cross-contamination. For those who are just eating GF for fad reasons, it doesn't matter; for those who are celiac or otherwise medically need to eat GF, it's crucial. It would be helpful to know what kind of training (if any) the staff is getting; places like Shake Shack tend to be high-turnover, low-wage places, so to trust them to do the right thing without explicit training is problematic, to put it mildly.

Firstly thank you for spreading the celiac news, very much appreciate the hard work that you guys put in. Just wanted to point out that the gluten free buns at Shake Shack are not made by Martin's but by a new company called Bellyrite Foods Inc! Just want to keep you well informed and accurate!

The hamburger WITH a GF bun at Shake Shack in Winter Park, FL gets a 5 star rating from me. They even put the GF items in a separate bag for take out! Really delicious hamburgers! Try them. What I'd like to know is how do you reach Bellyrite to order buns? I'd love to have them for my own use. So very delicious!
