A while ago, I checked the McDonald's gluten free menu and they said that both their fries and burgers were Gluten-Free. A few nights ago, I checked again to see if they'd updated since the french fry snafu (evidently they aren't ALL gluten free) and now the burgers no longer seem to be ok. Has anyone else heard anything about this? What's left to eat at McDonalds??

the burgers aren't ok anymore?? I've always eaten their fires and burgers and have never gotten sick. But that's weird. We should probably email the company asking them.


Beef Patty, Regular Bun, Ketchup, Mustard, Pickle Slices, Onions (Dehydrated), Grill Seasoning

that's the ingredient list for MickeyD's hamburgers. Of course we get it without the bun of course. Do they have a separate section for Celiac Disease somewhere?? If so, could you please give me the link?

French Fries:

Potatoes, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, natural flavor (beef, wheat and dairy sources), dextrose, sodium acid pyrophosphate (to preserve natural color). Cooked in partially hydrogenated vegetable oils (may contain partially hydrogenated soybean oil and/or partially hydrogenated corn oil and/or partially hydrogenated canola oil and/or cottonseed oil and/or sunflower oil and/or corn oil). Contains derivatives of wheat and dairy.

I didn't know it said that. I've always eaten them and never gotten sick. Usually if I eat frys that are made in the same fryer I have "D"

Here's the link....


let me know what you think. A while ago I asked McDonald's to send me their Gluten-Free menu and it said burgers were ok. This seems to say otherwise...which sucks cause it's my usual fast food fix. I get a little gurgly after it, but other than that I am usually ok.

Guess I'll be eating Chic-Fil-A fries from now on :(

Folks, you really have to look further. Here's the ingredients of the beef patty.

Beef Patty:

100% pure USDA inspected beef; no additives, no fillers, no extenders.

If this isn't gluten-free, nothing is. No guarantees about CC though.

McDonald's says their hamburgers have wheat in it, but maybe their just talking about the bun. The seasoning couldn't possibly have gluten in it, could it?? Maybe their just lying to protect themselves in case someone gets sick and trys to sue so they say it contains wheat to put people off of it.

Do not forget they will have crumb on counter, on their gloves, in their microwave, etc... its a game of russian rullete. (no clue on speeling). Eating out is risky, eating out at a fast food joint is amlost sucidal level risky, IMO.

I choose NOT to subject my son to that kind of risk, nor anyone else that ever may be in my care.

And if you are a Canadian, the fries and hashbrowns are safe up here.

    • Hi everyone, This is my first post. I am happy to find a forum for being shared and being answered. I am really despressed with my all symptoms and got confused with tons of information from google :((. Sorry if my story below is long and spend your time. I just want to be shared my worries. Thanks I experienced some symptoms such as abdomen pains, diarrhea, fatigue, one side heachade and enlarged lymph nodes. These things are appeared more frequently after I gave birth to my baby 2 years ago. Recently, it becomes quite bad. I have met some family doctors, they did not concern anything until the recent one. She said that I should try gluten free for 1 month, diary free for 2 weeks, then returned. But I still do not do any tests for comfirming except for CBC test and ultra sound for lymph nodes. All results were normal, except for one indicator in blood test a little low (mchc). The doctor said that she had no concern. I have travelled a lot, so it was hard to eliminate gluten totally. I have had some accidentally gluten eating, so I still feel sick, especially abdomen pain and lymph nodes. I am now in strictly diet for 1.5 weeks and feel quite better, except for the lymph nodes. After 2 months, I finally can return doctor office for more discuss, though I am very worried. To talk about the lymph nodes, I have one in gland for 1 year, not movable; another in neck for about 4-5 months, movable. They are in size of a bean. Are they too big? They seem not enlarge or down size from the day I felt them. Recently, I am very scared to find that there are 2 or 3 on going in the lower neck and groin area. They are at the size of peas. And no one is bad pain, just a little discomfortable. Oh my god, I hope you guys can share my feeling... just some days you wake up and find out that some new lumps growing up in your body. That's a terrible feeling. Has anyone experienced the enlarged lymph nodes? Before or after going gluten free diet. Could the diet help to reduce their size or they will still there. I read about the link between celiac and lymphoma. I am really really scared. My daughter, she is just 2. I will have doctor appointment next week, beside the tests to comfirm celiac, should I ask her to check the lymph nodes again also. Any one got celiac and lymphoma at the same time? Please share your experience. Thank you.
    • For the people that been  diagnosed with celiac diseased and med board, when you got out of the army did you get and disability I've been in the army for 6 years and this has been my family's income for the 6 years, so what assistants have you guys been given???
    • That isn't entirely correct.  the gluten-free list is the stuff that they know is & test to be gluten-free and not made with gluten products.  The other list is no gluten ingredients but not tested .  Read the link for the explanation
    • The issue with Frito is they use the same lines with gluten containing products.  Even though they clean them there is still a chance in cross contamination. 
    • ...I use my vegan cheese sauce recipes in cheesy casserole dishes....they can be bit iffy....I just used my vegan bacon cheese mix and poured it over a large rectangle baking dish of broccoli and topped with shredded vegan cheddar Sunday for this weeks veggie dish. Check the recipe blog on my profile I have various vegan cheese dishes on their, the whole nut ones are creamier the coconut flour ones can be a bit gritty.
