Thanks for giving us the heads up. My gluten and corn issues make this place a land mine for me , I have not eaten in there in years. This is great info for others to know for it was at one time one of a few potential options (with the burrito bowl option ) in the fast food world someone could watch them make your food upfront.

I contacted Chipotle after I saw the post about the upcoming new dessert.  This is Chipotle's reply:

Susan,

Thanks for reaching out to us about this very important issue. We are very, very aware of the gluten issue and what is happening right now is a test in one restaurant in which the wheat tortilla chips are being cooked in a fryer outside of the restaurant, specifically to minimize the impact of cross-contamination. We recognize that, while we are not a "gluten free" establishment (our tortillas have wheat in them), we have a very loyal following among those who strive to avoid gluten. We won't do anything to jeopardize that and, even as we are testing this exciting new dessert, we have this issue top of mind, and are taking and will take appropriate and reasonable steps, such as cooking the chips offsite, and having procedures in place to minimize any risk of cross-contamination.

Thanks for your passion and interest. We will get this right.

Sincerely,
Taylor

Customer Service Coordinator
Chipotle Mexican Grill


Original Comment:
I just read the news about a possible new dessert coming on the menu at Chipotle which would involve frying a floured product in your oil. I, along with tens of thousands of other celiacs and gluten sensitive people, have enjoyed your tortilla chips for years now because they were gluten free. If this new desert is indeed true, all of us would be deprived of enjoying your tortilla chips and guacamole. Could you clarify if this is going to happen? I eat at Chipotle twice a week and I am so disheartened. 
Thank you.

    It is meant to be restrictive -  so you don’t run any risk of cc with gluten.  That really is the fundamental basis.  It isn’t meant to be fun or interesting.  It is meant for people who are very sick and the normal gluten-free diet isnt working.  It is a last step before medications.  It is not a lifestyle or a life long diet.  So, for those who really need it for its original intent- they are going to follow it to the letter with a doctor , who is versed in Celiac.   Lots of people try pa
    I have ataxia and for me it is a feeling like walking on a ship that is in a high sea. I had ataxia since childhood and needed canes by the time I was diagnosed. Over 40 years later... Ataxia has pretty much resoved but I did need to get physical therapy to walk normally. I don't however feel dizzy thankfully. If the dizzy feeling sticks around after your other gluten symptoms resolve it might be a good idea to see an ear doctor just to be on the safe side. Sometimes our body gets so busy fighti
Corn would not make DH flare unless it was either CC'd in processing or was contaminated through your prep and cooking process. For example grilling the corn on a grill that had gluten prepared on it previously or washing it in a colander that had pasta drained previously.  IMHO Squirmy is spot on. Give yourself some time to heal on the gluten free diet and avoid HIGH iodine sources like iodized salt, seaweed and seafood. The bit of natural iodine in veggies and fruits shouldn't be an issue. If
