Is This Cross Contamination

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was at Taco Cabana Sunday. I ordered the street tacos. I noticed they heat up the corn and flour tortillas on the same grill. Is this considered cross contamination? I still can't tell if I have ingested gluten accidentally.

Thanks

That would indeed be CC. How much would be hard to say but more than I would want.

I agree with the previous answer! It's most definitely cross contamination. In UK the Coeliacs UK charity recommend having our own kitchen equipment like bread toasters etc., so we can avoid this problem. As for being able to tell if you have been glutened. It actually depends from person to person. Some people don't actually show any symptoms, but that does not mean they haven't been glutened and the damage to the villi in the gut is still happening, you are just not aware of it, which can have serious consequences, so please take care!

There's clear potential for getting gluten from that.

I haven't tried asking this with a restaurant yet, but at my mother-in-laws, she grills everything in aluminum foil for me.

It's very important that when eating at a restaurant that the manager/staff understand what going gluten free entails. There is still a lot of people who don't understand what it's all about. Always speak to someone in authority when eating anywhere new just to be certain you don't get cross contamination.
