McDonald's fries and hash browns

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have learned that McDonald's in the US began serving "Donut Sticks" earlier this year. Sadly, they are fried in the same oil as the potatoes, so the potato products are no longer safe at US locations. As far as I am able to determine, in Canada the potatoes are still gluten-free. Angry.

Diagnosis by biopsy of practically non-existent villi; gluten-free since July 2000. I was retested five years later and the biopsy was normal. You can beat this disease!

That point has been debated here since 2006. The fries themselves do not contain wheat. A wheat derivative is used in the flavoring that is then added to the oil in which they are partially fried at the factory. There was no detectable gluten in the finished product. But it is moot now.
