In N Out Burger

20 posts in this topic

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.

    • Yes you are correct. Interestingly my genes in the US are thought to be more associated with RA. Which is something they thought I had prediagnosis. In the Middle and far East they are more likely to be associated with celiac and they are rare genes in Caucasians which I am according to my parents known heritage. I always caution folks not to take the gene tests as absolute proof they can't have celiac because I had one child who had positive blood and biopsy, did well on the diet, then got genes tested in young adulthood and was told they could never be celiac. Of course that resulted in her abandoning the diet. I worry but hope someday doctors will realise we still have a lot to learn about the genetics of this disease. PS While I still have some deformity in my hands my joint pain resolved after a few months on the diet.
    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
