Mcdonald's French Fries

Recommended Posts

Sorry, this may have already been posted...I just found this on Mcdonalds.com:

French Fries:

Potatoes, vegetable oil (partially hydrogenated soybean oil, natural beef flavor (wheat and milk derivatives)*, citric acid (preservative), dextrose, sodium acid pyrophosphate (maintain color), dimethylpolysiloxane (antifoaming agent)), salt. Prepared in vegetable oil ((may contain one of the following: Canola oil, corn oil, soybean oil, hydrogenated soybean oil, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, partially hydrogenated corn oil with TBHQ and citric acid added to preserve freshness), dimethylpolysiloxane added as an antifoaming agent). *CONTAINS: WHEAT AND MILK (Natural beef flavor contains hydrolyzed wheat and hydrolyzed milk as starting ingredients.)

So, I'm understanding that right? Contains wheat = no eat, right?

You will get many opinions on both sides of the issue. According to the CSA, the fries have been tested independently and the gluten level is BLD (below levels of detection). CC is always a possibility. I do allow my son to eat them at McDonald's on occasion because the gluten in the end product cannot be detected in the most sensitive testing available. We have never reacted to the fries, and our antibodies are negative. It is definitely a personal choice, but I feel they are a safe choice.
