In N Out Burger

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was told that protein style burgers at In-N-Out are gluten free. I had one last night and have not had a reaction or anything. Was wondering if anyone knows if the secret sauce is gluten free? I called In-N-Out and was told that the major ingredients are gluten free. The customer service rep I spoke with said that the secret sauce is a thousand island style sauce and was unsure about it's gluten content. Has anyone done research on this to know? I love In-N-Out because their fries are safe to eat.

PLEASE HELP.

My daughter's GI doc said the protein burgers were gluten-free! He recommended them highly! I sure hope he wasn't overlooking the "special sauce"! You guys don't think he would be that naive...oh my gosh, you just don't know who to trust, so I don't trust anyone. I would call In'n'Out myself and ask.

Dana,

Had one last night with the secret sauce and did not have a reaction-YET. I love In-N-Out, tastes fresh and makes me feel like I am eating "real" food. :P But, when I called In-N-Out, they didn't seem to check out the sauce. I have read on various sites that these "protein" burgers are gluten-free. I am confused. Has your daughter ever had a reaction? Hear from you soon.

I have been eating In N Out Burger for months now, with the sauce, and have not had a problem. However, I did have a contact problem with Goo Gone which made my hands break out in a red, burny rash. So watch out for household products also. Shirley

emmeeann, our doc just told us last week and we haven't tried one yet. Judging from what everyone has said, it sounds okay, though. You can always order without the sauce. I'm definately going to have one this week! My sister is visiting and it would blow her mind if I took her to a drive-thru! She is very sensitive about my celiac disease, in fact we're all going to Outback tonight to take advantage of their gluten-free menu. We had been planning for months to go to a Tea Room that is nationally known then I got Dx and that was that--she was really great about it and said she would never put me in an uncomfortable position with food. Plus, the best of all, she's getting tested for celiac disease at her checkup next month! Isn't great when people get it?! Protein burgers all around!

My boyfriend is gluten-free and had the protein burger w/ special sauce and got sick afterward. Since then he just orders it with ketchup and mustard instead and is A-ok!

The last info I have on In N Out is that the sauce is gluten-free. Everything else is gluten-free except the buns. My biggest concern there would be CC. It would be worth another call to them about their sauce though...

Here's the deal with In N Out. Everything is gluten-free except the bun. The Sauce itself is gluten-free. HOWEVER, they use a knife to dip in the sauce and spread on the buns, so they will not say it is gluten-free due to CC. I get my burgers with ketchup and mustard (which is in squirt bottles) and ask them to prepare my burger away from the bun area. They will do both (otherwise everything is just lying next to the buns). If you really like the sauce they keep packets under the counter with the ketchup packets.

Thanks for the clarification elonwy. You are always so thorough with your responses. I always learn something. I miss In N Out. It was a staple once

Hehe. Thanks. I'm one of those annoying people who grills everyone within an inch of their life, then calls back the next day to make sure I'm getting the right answer, then asks the manager at the store anyway. *sigh* Drives my friends a bit bonkers, but I just hate being sick and don't trust people who don't have the disease to pay attn to every detail we would.

I love In N Out, but I won't do drive through with them and I also won't go when they are super busy. Its a great backup for road trip food in CA though, I have to say.

Mmm... now I want a burger and some cheesy fries.

I love In-n-Out! My favorite place to go and I can have fries without the worry of CC from the frier. You do need to ask them to cook on a separate grill =)

Hi! I called In-in-Out burger last night because I'd also heard rumors of it being Gluten-free, and was told by the rep. that "everything on the menu is gluten free except the buns." She also went on to give me some pointers in reference to cross-contamination: ask for a clean spatula when cooking the burger and a clean knife when spreading the sauce (or ask for sauce in packets). They cook the burgers on a dedicated area, but the spatulas and knives do touch the buns!! Due to cross-contamination issues, it's the only "fast food" I'll eat. Another poster gave great advice when she said to go at non-peak times. I agree!

We continue healing every day.

Ate there (San Francisco, Fisherman's Wharf) on Sunday when it was really quiet. Enjoyed a lot, but did notice that when they were making my burger it was on the same surface where they had buns . . . should I say something next time?

Can someone please pickup 20 of those burgers and carry them onto a plane and bring them to Grovetown, Georgia? I'll be nice and let you eat one of them.

You do have to be a bit careful with this place though. We try to go during off peak times and ask that they change gloves for the protein burger meals and fries. One time we told them of the "allergy" and they handed us the regular burger with the bun in the same box touching the gluten-free ones. The were apologetic and did re-make the order. We still eat there, but we are very careful about it.

At Fisherman's Wharf today for my burger treat.

When I asked for extra care in preparing my protein burgers the assistant pressed a button on the till for "allergy." She said that this was new system, to alert the preparers to the fact that they were dealing with food allergies.

I was impressed by the whole service.

    • I know-pretty dumb. I'm usually very careful. I didn't check into it. Thanks for reply. DebLee
    • LexieA, This thread might help you. You say you never have "heartburn/GERD". You can have something called Silent Reflux. It  could also be NERD. some of these links are in this thread but I will post some releavent information in this reply as well. here is a good overview of the difference in this fox news article. http://www.foxnews.com/health/2012/11/13/gerd-or-nerd-new-type-acid-reflux-doesnt-respond-to-drugs.html but if your throwing up it is probably from Bile Relfux. . . . instead of acid reflux. I actually wrote a blog post on celiac.com about these conditions. the NYTimes article called Bile Reflux a "Shadowland" in Medicine and part of the reason for the title of the post. here is the NYtimes article about some of the issues you are describing. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/30/health/30brod.html throwing up is actually a protective reaction. and this normally protect us from poison's or food poisioning etc. but when our biofeedack loop is broken down like having bile in the stomach instead of the small intestine . . . it can be hard to break this cycle. The green portion is probably the bile portion. It is actually very caustic as Plumbago pointed out.  this would/coul scald our insides (lower GI/Small Intestines). Normally stomach acid is neutralized by bile after it leaves the stomach . .. not while in the stomach. I wouldn't never recommend anybody do this on purpose . .. but if you are already puking your food up then simply buy a pH test kit. testing your food/chyme/puke (food outside the body) you will quickly get an idea of how acidic/basic your food chyme (digested food) is. It will almost be a pH of 4.0 or more. the paleo nurse explains this well why strong stomach acid is important to your health. http://thepaleonurse.com/the-truth-about-stomach-acid-why-low-stomach-acid-is-jeopardizing-your-health/ quoting the paleonurse. "In the infinite wisdom of the human body, the stomach was designed to produce the acid that is necessary for proper digestion of food.  When functioning properly, the parietal cells of the stomach secrete hydrochloric acid that bring the stomach pH to a range of approximately 1.5 to 3.0" if it is a higher pH than this you can benefit from taking BetaineHCL to restore your stomach acid to more natural level. . . especially if you are not already taking PPI's since a proton pump inhibitor is lowering stomach acid. .. . by their very ability to cut off almost all stomach acid production. **** this is not medical advice I only know taking powdered stomach acid (BetaineHCL capsules)  helped me. I was not barfing my meals though. . . so your experience my be different. Maybe Ennis_tx will comment because he has some of the same symptom's/issues. But if I was puking I think I would be curios to know what my pH really is? And not Assume? anything at this point. If you test your stomach pH with easy to buy pH strips you will know whether it really is high pH (low stomach acid or a little stomach acid as your describe it) or low pH (really high stomach aid) that is causing the issue's. Once you know for sure you  will know who to go about correcting it. Supplementing with BetaineHCL is fairly harmless . . .unless you have an ulcer. And you will/would probably know it instantly if you take some BetaineHCL and it feels like someone is putting out a cigarette in the middle of your stomach.  It is acid burning your sore/ulcer. thankfully eating protein/food quickly neutralizes/raises stomach acid especially when taken with a glass of water. staying hydrated with a meal also helps improve digestion so be sure to take some water/drink like a tea or juice etc. for example if you want to the BetaineHCL to work properly. Milk has the opposite effect.  If you feel a burning milk can coat the lining of your stomach helping to erase/ease the effect of strong acid. And why people who eat hot **** five alarm peppers aka known as Hot heads keep milk close by if they need to dampen the fire in their stomachs from eating too many peppers. . . . and drinking water can aggravate this practice of eating the hottest peppers you can find. I hope this is helpful. I have rambled on long enough. be sure to read the sickboy user in the medhelp thread of how he helped his GERD/bile reflux. here is medhelp link for easy reference included in the "silent reflux" thread if you haven't read it yet. https://www.medhelp.org/posts/Gastroenterology/UNCONTROLLABLE-BILE-REFLUX-PLEASE-HELP/show/738242?page=1 he was suffering for 5 years and got better so don't lose hope. It can seem very daunting but people on this board do get better. we have used different methods but people do get better. again this is not medical advice just things that have helped me. good luck on your continued journey but it is not a long way back if you know the way. 2 Corinthians (KJV) 1:3,4 3) “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; 4) who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them (sufferer still suffering)   which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.” posterboy by the grace of God,    
    • LOL sorry but really? You trust that, dominos, papa johns, and pizza hut ALL say they can not 100% guarantee their gluten-free pizza are celiac safe. THEY USE the same prep areas, same ingredient bins, same ovens and in many cases the same cutters and spoons used to spread the sauces and cut the pizza. I doubt the employees would even bother changing gloves between pizzas during rush.   Seriously if you want a gluten free pizza....gut a premade one in the freezer section from UDI, Dayia, RealGoodPizza or a crust from cappellos or califlower foods and make your own....Here please save yourself here is a list. BTW Pizza hut uses UDI crust and just tops them with their sauce etc....CCing in most cases and delivering them. Also the REAL good pizza will mail you cases of their pizzas fully made. Califlour foods and capello will mail you empty crust by the case. SO you can order them if  local stores do not carry them.

    • My MRI has been clear. They did a spinal tap back in May which was also good.  MS ruled out many times. All my symptoms match Gluten Ataxia, but I don't know for sure since I don't have a dx. However, I DO have Hashimotos so at least going Gluten Free is necessary for that. I go to my Rheumatologist on Jan. 30th, 2018. Can a Rheumatologist determine Gluten Ataxia? If so how long should I be back on Gluten for testing?  Thanks for the heads up on Free and Clear products. I will look into that.
