Yes, exactly. So, a bun is gluten free. What can you put between them?

...and oops there it is:

"sweetened with molasses and raisins."

Sugar. The bane of our existence.

I didn't put this on for those of you who never eat out or have not gotten your health under control.  I put this on for the majority of everyday Celiacs, living their lives, and who eat at Chick Fil A and other places with a good gluten-free reputation.  I realize that most of them are not posting on here, but some do read the new topic headlines to see if any are of interest to them.

chick Fil A is known in the Celiac community as being a place you can get grilled chicken letttuce wrap or grilled nugggets, waffle fries, lemonade, shakes, etc.  

breads with yeast need a sugar source to feed the yeast.  It doesn't have to be a lot.  Some people might think that molasses and raisen are a more healthy source of that sugar than high fructose corn syrup.

Ok, but I tend to think even “mainstream eaters” for lack of a better word are slowly but surely coming round to questioning the idea of sugar being in everything. HFCS, is just a teeny tiny bit “worse” than molasses or raisins, it’s almost not even worth pointing out. But at any rate, I did not know there were indeed gluten-free entrees one could order, and the linked article did not mention it, if I am not mistaken. ‘course, would not make sense to have a gluten-free bun without anything to go in it…

I guess you will not be eating much yeast bread as a little sugar helps it rise.  If the amount of sugar in a bun you eat once in a while at a restaurant is a concern, I am sure you could ask how much it is?  Or just eat your grilled chicken as a lettuce wrap?  And I guess you won't be having the milkshake?  :lol:

"The bun costs an extra $1.15 and comes individually packaged. Customers will have to assemble their own sandwich because Chick-fil-A kitchens are not gluten-free and this is the only way that chain can prevent cross-contamination. "

The bold is mine. With this paragraph I don't think I will be trying anything there. Are we supposed to bring our own fillings?

I know many Celiacs that eat at Chick Fil A successfully.  They have grilled chicken and it  comes straight from the grill to the customer.  By giving you the wrapped bun, eliminates  the bun step and a lot of possible cc.

All restaurants that have any gluten in them - use  the possible cc statement.

 

I linked to this for those who would like to or do eat at Chick Fil A.  Instead of taking the wording of a journalist, that may have no clue what they are talking about.,  they can inquire , and should, at the individual store as to how their food is prepared.

I had the gluten free bun this weekend in North Houston and I was pleasantly surprised.  Its surely not the BEST gluten-free bun I've ever had but it emulated the original Chick-fil-A bun fairly well.  The bun is the biggest gluten-free I've ever had, however.  

I know they do prepare the meal separately and bring you the buns in a plastic bag and I had no reactions but I've been eating at Chick-fil-A for a while and always had good luck there (before it was just the grilled chicken nuggets).    

It was nice feeling me and my oldest son enjoying a relatively normal fast food meal together with the rest of the family.

I buy the bun only to take home and add my own meat. I add pull pork, turkey burger, grilled hamburger, grilled or oven chicken breast. I do deli turkey ham and roast beef.  That way no concern about cross contamination. Its worth it not to be sick. 

You go all the way to chick fil a to buy a bun?   If you are worried there is cc with the meat, why aren't you worried that there is cc with the different buns?
