Glutenized

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I think I was glutenized this morning. I went to mcdonalds and ordered a sausage pattie and a egg. no bread at all. I even asked the manager if they put anything with wheat on the grill and they said no. I did have a non-fat mocha, I wonder if there is anything in the drink? I now have stomach cramps and bowel urgency. It hit maybe 20 minutes after I ate. Any thoughts?

I'd check out the non-fat mocha. Or that lying manager. I've given up on McDs.

Any time you eat at a fast food restaurant you should assume the risk. Even though a product may be considered gluten free, the risk for cross contamination is great.

I don't mangers would intentially lie to you about their proceedures.

Have you considered a dairy issues? Especially if you are new to the diet and have not healed. Or, if you have not healed ANY food, gluten free or not, could be an issue.

I don't think the manager would intentionally lie either, but it's certainly possible (and probable) they they don't understand how many things contain gluten. My best guess is that it was something in the drink, though. Everything at Macdonalds is processed and horrible for you. I do not recommend.

Same thing was happening to me. I called McDonalds Corporation myself and spoke with a rep that told me the things I was eating had no gluten in them. You have to think of all the other things that DO HAVE gluten in them such as the buns, breaded chicken, the wraps etc.

Sooner or later you will get glutened. It's a crap shoot at best. I stopped doing it because you just never know and I don't want anyone having that power of my health. They will never be as careful as you would. Most of the managers I have talked to don't even know what Celiac Disease is. You would think this would be a part of their training.

I actually have that kind of reaction to caffeine... and so does my mother. But as far as places that are easy to be accidentally glutened, I think McDonald's is around the top of the list.

Sorry you are not feeling well.

i usually only react that quickly to milk but it could be anything there. I actually have good luck with McDonald's when ordering double cheeseburgers with no bun. I have ordered the sausage egg OK also. But at any time in a restaurant, CC can happen.

I think the hardest part of "glutenization" is figuring out how to avoid repeat episodes... It's hard when you just have to eliminate everything that could have caused it even though some of those items could still be fine!

I looked online at the McD's cafe style drinks when they first came out, and I remember some of the ingredients being questionable. I think it was natural flavors and maybe unspecified food starch?

I agree with some of the other people who've replied- McD's is probably a great place to get CC'ed. With as sensitive as I am to gluten (maybe you aren't as much), I can't even chance fast food anymore. Except the occasional Wendy's frosty!

Good luck with finding out what caused your symptoms. I know I am especially sensitive to lactose-related symptoms after I get glutened. Coffee also can cause abdominal cramping. Have coffee or milk ever bothered you before? Do you drink them often?
