Mcdonalds Question

Recommended Posts

I'm going on a school field trip and for lunch the only questionable place I can eat is Mcdonalds. Yes, I've heard everything going on about mcdonalds. But I heard on the news that the maker of mcdonalds (or something like that) clarified that the fries are gluten free. I'm very confused, should I play guinea pig and try the fries??????? :unsure:

I personally would not do it. I don't risk ANYTHING when it comes to gluten. There are a ton of links on this forum to articles about McDonalds. I suggest you read them before you make a decision.

Base on my understanding of the source of wheat in the ingredient list and based on the recent testing, I think that the fries *could* be safe, BUT based on what I understand of restaurant practices (including oil recycling and not-so-dedicated (no matter what company policy is) friers, I do not believe they are *in actuality* truely safe, and will not eat them. Then again, friers being what they are, I say that about virtually ALL fried foods.

This is really a personal decision for everyone. I personally wouldn't eat them. I get major reactions to wheat and it just wouldn't be worth the risk for me.

Maybe you could bring your own food to eat?

Ok. I consider myself a pretty militant anti gluten mom for my 7 year old son. I got him fries the other day and he was fine. The testing proved that the fries are safe for celiacs. I am the type who won't even let my son have food that says "processed in same facility as wheat", but I think the fries are fine. Seeing as he's had no reaction, I'd say they're fine. We all have to decide for ourselves, though.

I find that strange, because I heard on NPR last week or the week before that McDonald's fries are made with wheat and milk so they are not safe to eat.

I don't believe anything fast food restaruants say, they're evil anyway.

It's an individual decision--my sister and myself, both gluten free for 5 years, have always eaten McDonald's fries and never had a problem. I haven't had a french fry since moving to Long Island, but that is from personal preference--I don't eat fast food to begin with. My sister had them 2 weeks ago with her grandchildren and is fine. We both react to gluten very quickly--her within 1/2 hour. I say they are safe. Deb

:rolleyes: Thanks everybody, I went on the field trip. It was a blast. Mandalay bay-shark reef. Anyways, it was Mcdonalds for lunch, and for me I decided not to eat the fries. But I did have a huge coke, I fessed up to my friends at school and they felt sorry for me, they were cool about it and supportive :)
