Taco Bell

Recommended Posts

I looked on Taco Bell's website and on the Sensitivities page, it lists Red Sauce as containing no gluten or wheat. But on the Ingredients page, it states that Red Sauce contains Yeast Extract (Contains Gluten). UGH! Does anyone know whether it actually contains gluten?

Yeast extract is gluten-free, unless something foreign is added to it. It does, however, contain MSG which is often mistakenly thought to contain gluten.

Diagnosis by biopsy of practically non-existent villi; gluten-free since July 2000. I was retested five years later and the biopsy was normal. You can beat this disease!

Yeast extract is usually safe but if Taco Bell states it contains gluten I sure wouldn't eat it. Why on earth would you take the chance?

Agree with Skylark. I'd stay away from it. Personally, now that there's a Qdoba AND Chipotle within 10 minutes of me, Taco Bell just does not appeal to me any more.

According to my eating out app the only two things that are safe at Taco bell are the pinto beans and rice. I know from personal experience that the meat has gluten in it. I stay away from there since there's nothing I can eat.


Blood tested 8-11 positive, Biopsy 9-11 negative (long story, most gastro drs. are morons)

gluten-free 7-11, Dairy Free (mostly) 8-13 - Everything but butter.  Can't live life without butter....
 

DS - negative blood test, just diagnosed with ADD and other learning disorders, DNA test positive - high risk

Issues related to gluten: depression, low iron, hair loss, positive ana test for lupus, low vitamin D, headache, sinusitis, environmental allergies, brain fog, GI problems, weight gain....the list goes on....
