Gluten Free Items in restaurants are really gluten free?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I got a new meter that detects gluten in the food. I have been testing food at home and in restaurants that supposed to have no gluten but to my surprise most of them still have gluten. Very concerned. What I have found out that even they prepare food with care with no obvious wheat stuff, the seasonings (peppers, chilli etc) have gluten cross contamination. Even at home, I prepared lentils with gluten free massalas, and gluten detector detected gluten. That means, even lentils were cross contaminated in packaging. Yesterday I ate at Moxies and gluten detect detected gluten in the two dishes I ordered from gluten Friendly menu. Any one else has any suggestions on how to deal with such situation

Not sure which sensor you are referring to, but the NIMA has been reviewed by the Gluten Free Watch Dog (comparable to Consumer Reports which is funded by members and not sponsors).  Read their thoughts:

https://www.glutenfreewatchdog.org/news/gluten-free-watchdogs-position-statement-on-consumer-use-of-the-nima-sensor-to-test-food-for-gluten/

i recommend subscribing to this worthy website, but then I subscribe to Consumer Reports too.   I find both to be invaluable.  

As far as eating out?  It is a risk that you must carefully consider.  I prefer 100% gluten free places, but those are rare.  

By the way, your lentils should be sorted and washed.    The US government allows for a few different grains or rocks to be included in the final product (unless certified gluten-free).
