Poll: Who Will Eat

Recommended Posts

'Course not, I'm sick of hurting with my stomach...even though I kind of thought they had gluten, I eat them until they released they had wheat in them.

And, for anyone who said 'yes', why risk having those terrible side-effects when you can drag out the deep fryer, go get some frozen french fries at your local market and have 'em at home? Yeah, I know, it's nothing like fast-food kind. But, I've learned with Celiac that your life should not revolve food and there's more to life than it. Eat to live, not live to eat.

Me? I'm from the 'States in Tennessee. :lol:

Yes. USA.

Had some today, along with a double quarter pounder with cheese, sans bun of course.

I was really sick for two years, got completely better immediately on a strict gluten-free diet. Going on 30 months now and haven't had a reaction to them one single time. I don't believe there is any measurable "gluten" in Mcdonald's fries.

best regards, lm

I might have commented somewhere in the past ten pages, but YES.

I have no problem eating McD's fries, but always away that CC can be a high risk.

Yes. The wheat is a starting product in a flavoring in the oil. That component is processed in a way that is analogous to distillation. They have been ELISA tested to be <20 ppm, so I consider them safe, cross contamination issues aside. In regards to cross contamination, I don't even think the employees touch the fries! :P They open them up, dump them in dedicated friers, then use the metal tool to put the fries into the containers. I trust ELISA methods and processes such as distillation.

lol, sometimes I look at all the fast food commercials and ask myself how do people actually eat that stuff? Sorry went off topic there. :ph34r:

I agree!

I have not eaten McD's in years and it has nothing to do with being Celiac. I only found out about Celiac this year, but it has been over 10 years since i will go to a fast food place (with the exception of Chipotle - lol)

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

I will never grace the inside of another Mc'Ds.

NO.

Southern California

Always hated McD's because it made me so sick--didn't realize it was the evil bun.

Now, I willingly go there with my kids and am never sick. I consider their fries safe. Actually, it's the only place out that I will consider eating fries. :D

No, I won't eat at McD.

Foodiegurl, that's funny because Chipotle (last I heard) was owned by McD's.
