I don't know if you have one where you are, but PF Changs has a gluten-free menu. I was told that you can't get much as far as chinese food goes since they cook mostly everything with soy sauce. Hope this helps!

Some of the "white sauce" dishes are gluten-free (moo goo gai pan or shrimp with snow peas) you would need to call them and ask what they use as their "thickening agent" is it flour or corn starch??? :)

I actually get Chinese quite a bit.

I either order the dish without soysauce (so they make the sauce with everything but the soy sauce) (and I do tell them I have a food allergy and speak with someone in charge) or I bring in my own gluten-free soysauce and have them use that instead. It's worked fine for me. I think if you go to your "neighborhood" place enough, they'll accommodate.

Hi!

I usually stick to the white sauce dish, like Chicken and Broccoli. I always say no soy sauce or flour...just corn starch and I have never had a problem.

Good luck!

I get Egg Drop soup which is just a broth based soup with eggs and veggies and then I get chicken and mushrooms with white sauce. Simple, easy, and it tastes really good.

Another option is to order a Steamed meal (Chicken and Mixed Veggies, etc.) and bring your own sauce. I order the "Spa Meals" from Chin Chins. They are cooked and served in a bamboo container. I bring my own sauces - sweet N sour, bbq, or soy sauce. I get funny looks from other people, but the food tastes great and I get to be out with friends :)

I would agree with the person who mentioned steamed food. I avoided chinese restaurants but found that most chinese restaurants will be able to steam chicken with vegetables.

To this day I cannot eat chinese food. When I was sick the past 2 years and I didnt know about celiacs, chinese was the thing that made me the sickest!! I hardly ever threw up but my sweat and sour chicken, egg roll would do it everytime!

What about hot and sour soup? Also, there are soy sauces without gluten. Don't any Chinese restaurants use them? I love Chinese food and have been having Kung Pow Chicken and General Tso's without breading. When I asked the owner at one restaurant about if there was wheat he said he wasn't sure because the sauces are premixed. I'm puzzled. :(

Heather,

I'm the same way.. Chinese is hard on me too! I'm not gluten-free (yet) and I'm usually laying on my stomach in pain when I eat it. I wonder if it's the MSG.... "Glutimate"

I would think fried rice would be fine. I have a local place made chicken fried rice for me with no soy sauce.

ps watch out for oyster sauce. after eating at a place i trusted they slipped oyster sauce into the regualr dish I eat. Too late, I had already eaten it. I should have know though, it had color to it. most white dish should be fine if you ask about the thickner.

    • My GI told me that everything looked great visually (endoscopy), but my biopsies revealed moderate to severe intestinal damage.  ☹️  You just have to wait for the pathologist's report.  
    • I ate there July 23 2017, had cheeseburger with gluten free bun (charged extra 2 dollars) which tasted very good. dressed burger with tomato, pickles and onion and even mayo with no unpleasant affects.  I appreciated the choice of gluten-free bun.  Also, the young man serving us asked if I wanted my French fries on the same plate as my burger, I guess their fries are not fried in a dedicated fryer.  Nice of him to give me a heads up though.  I am NCGS not proved as celiac disease.
    • I think you will find that aromatherapy is safe.  I have had the same thing when having facials many, many times over 12 years gluten free and have never, ever had a problem. I have never found any aromatherapy that contained gluten. I am a very sensitive, diagnosed Celiac.  As far as lotion is concerned, you won't have a problem if you wash your hands, which I cannot imagine NOT doing before eating.  That is Celiac 101.  You only have to screen hand lotions for personal use and anything that goes onto the lips.  Eye drops also should be gluten-free as you put that directly into the eye and it can make it's way down into your gut. Hair salons........no, never had a problem.  If a salon uses good products, they will not contain gluten. Again, in 12 years of checking anything new they use, never found any gluten component.  I color and trim my hair once a month and I'm pretty sure I'd be dead by now if I ingested gluten for so often for 12 years.  You really do not want to ingest anything that is sprayed and I can't say that I have.  It's a bad idea for many other reasons besides gluten. I know you are newly diagnosed and yes, you need to check ingredients BUT gluten is not everywhere. If you check whatever they are using and it does not contain the dreaded gluten, then do not worry about it.
    • There is a lot of information on site about living with Celiac disease. A good idea is to take a look at the "coping with" section and the "newbie info 101" thread. There is a lot of good information about cross contamination and proper nutrition.
    • Sorry to hear about your no meat, Ennis. It sucks his celiac disease messes with people in different ways. Matt I was living on sweet potatoes but now they bloat me, which is odd. Avocado's would be to much fat, I think. I'm three weeks in today, and the past few days my C has improved. So that's some good news. I do know I need to stop worrying about the weight loss. So easy to Google and worry. If I could get back to lifting weights and reclaim my shoulders I'd be more calm and less stressed. For now I'll just have to get used to being lean. Anyone up for a symptom swap. My off on fatigue has shown up. I will swap for headaches brain fog. R Be well all
