Do You Think Mcdonalds Will Ever Roll Out gluten-free Stuff?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

For me

-Meccas is my favourite

-It is everywhere (I often have trouble simply finding gluten-free stuff)

-It taste good

-It is filling (another big problem with this thing nothing fills me up)

and yeh. I have studied a bit of marketing and I know the water, the apples, allt he salds they now sell were brought in to deal with changing community standards of health. gluten-free would be as easy as having the buns on stand by then the burgers and chips and such are already gluten-free it would be so easy for them to implement and they would a make a fair bit too. They even sell little cereal boxes these days but no gluten-free buns for a gluten-free quater pounder? Thoughts? Will it come soon?

As more and more get diagnosed with Celiac hopefully they get a heads up about it? Of course if Maccas jumped on i RECKON alot of others would follow too

They have gluten-free buns in Finland (or at least they did two or three years ago)...

Heavens no! First they lied about the French fries and said they were vegetarian. There is beef in the fat used to cook them. Then they didn't disclose the dairy and gluten in the fat for the fries. Now they do. And now they have the Angus seasoning with wheat in it. Plus almost everything on their menu has a bunch of crap in it. It is not wholesome food at all, except for the apple slices. I can't even give the salad a high rating because of the ones with the crappy chicken on them.

I also don't understand how you could think their food was filling, unless perhaps it has something to do with celiac and eating a wheat bun. To me their food is anything BUT filling.

I am new to the gluten-free diet, and I went to McDonald's web site to check on the ingredients in their food. Things I was sure wouldn't have gluten, like the hamburger patties and the grilled chicken, absolutely do have gluten in them!! Why?! That is just ridiculous!! Even their apple/walnut salad has gluten! About the only things I can eat there would be the salad with no meat, the apple dippers/caramel sauce, or the fruit parfait. :( Not much choice in that, so might as well not even go there.

I'm also confused about the fries. I checked last week, and their website says wheat on the fries, but just 3 weeks ago I went to a dietician who has celiac's herself and she said the fries were gluten-free and she even showed me last month's edition of some celiac magazine with McDonald's fries right on the cover and it said 'Yes, they're gluten-free' or something like that. I'm doubting whether to subscribe to any celiac magazines now! I'm assuming the McDonald's website is more accurate than a dietician with celiac's or a magazine - right?

In the United States, there is a wheat-derived ingredient in the flavor added to the oil in which the McDonalds fries are partially fried before freezing.

Independent testing by Dr. Steven Taylor, a recognized expert at the University of Nebraska, has found no detectable gluten in the end product.

Make your own decision. The question has been debated endlessly here since February of 2006.

Even if they had gluten-free buns, they would have to cook the quarter pound patties on separate equipment than the new third pound Angus patties as they contain wheat in the seasonings.

As far as the fries containing wheat StacyA, that's probably the most contentiously debated topic on the forum. :D

For me some things are just what they are. I accept the fact that I can't and probably will never eat at certain places again. Oh well, life goes on. ;)
