Can anyone tell me if McDonalds french fries are gluten-free in Canada? Their fact sheet appears to show no gluten. If they are gluten-free, has anyone ever had a problem after consuming them?

Thanx, Tracy

Hi there. I live in the US, but my Mom (who is also Celiac, isn't the gene pool fun?) lives in Canada and has no problems with McD. fries. As far as worrying about the server having gluten on his hands, as far as I've seen McD. fries are always put in the little boxes with a special scoop, and are never touched by the employees. I personally am glad to know that thier fries are gluten-free, because that is something that doesn't need to be messed with, I mean potatoes aren't really that expensive...

Yes! Ive had a severe reaction to Mc Donald's fry's. I live in Barrie ONTARIO CAN. and the other day thinking that their fry's were okay had the super size. 10 mins, which is the normal time I react to gluten was all it took after eating the fry's. I had a really bad migrane and was sick to the point where i was throughing up every hour. It took me 2 weeks to recover from that incident. Now ive heard good things and bad things on Mc Donalds and i guss it all depends on how everyone react's. Everyone is diffrent. I still do not know why I was so sick and I know it was the fry's on the account that's all i had to eat all day. I hear that they coat their fry's in TBHQ. Somthing we Celiac's cant have. I got that information from the U.S. web site. In Canada im not sure if it would be the same here. If anyone know's more about that let me know cuz i would love to hear about it!

My mom works in McD's in the US and the grease used for the frys is the same grease that they use for the chicken nuggets. And there's breading on the nuggets, right? So im i would say that the fries are bad! If im wrong im sry.

I live in kansas....and here they bake their nuggets in these little toaster oven things. Their fries are in dedicated fryers. The hashbrowns are the only other thing that go into them.

The fries and the hashbrowns in the US are gluten free. I don't know about Canada, but I can't see why they would be different. Only some restaurants use dedicated fryers though, so it is a good idea to ask. Especially if it is a McDonald's

Express station like they have at malls and gas stations. They don't have the room for dedicated fryers, so those places are not usually safe to have the fries/hashbrowns.

God bless,

Mariann

    • I will just stick with christopherbean company, the fact the main sales rep I talk to has celiac in the family means a lot, she said they use it all the time. I tested some of the iffiest flavored version grounds for gluten all negative. NOT had any issues drinking all kinds of coffee from their company in the past few months. FACT the flavored ones actually taste like what they say and just need a bit of sweetener is making me a coffee addict again lol. Clearing a pot a day so far and looking forward to each day wondering what flavor I should do >.> today was banana foster coffee, its 7 am and i already am on my third cup. If your still in doubt just buy their beans and grind your self.  I am grateful for the guy that started this thread as he ended up motivating me to start my campaign to find a gluten-free flavored coffee, where I ended up emailing several companies, I still saved 2 of the replies from companies saying DO NOT drink our coffee if you have celiac. Sorta funny how that brought up the issue and proved some points about gluten in the coffee industry.
    • Ch88 yes im  glad i had the blood test but it was found by accident so bit of a shock when i found out. God knows how long i had it but i always remember as a child suffering from stomach pain alot but back in the eighties it was unheard off!  But if you or any other membets can offer advice on what happens after the biopsy it would be much appreciated.
    • Most of the articles you presented were blogs.  They focused in one article pushed by the American Chemical Society.  The research looked at ground coffee in Brazil ONLY.   https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/newsreleases/2014/august/keeping-filler-ingredients-out-of-your-cup-of-coffee.html We know that Brazil is a very poor country.  Just look at what happened during the last Olympics.   For piece of mind, do not drink ground coffee brands from Brazil.  Instead, grind your own beans or purchase grounds from a reputable company.    
    • Okay, a positive on thyroid antibodies,  but what about the rest of the thyroid panel?  That tells more of the story.   Is  rest of the thyroid panel all in the normal ranges?  Is that why you were recommended to take a supplement instead of actual thyroid hormone replacement?  Many doctors try a tiny dose of thyroid hormone replacement.  Was this considered?   Symptoms besides gray hair?   You can either embrace the gray hair or color it.  My research and personal experience has never come across a method of reversing grey hair.  My SIL grayed  at 18.  She has been coloring her hair black for decades and her thyroid is normal.
