Gluten-Free Fast Food French Fries

Does anyone know if ANY fast food fries are gluten-free? I've looked on several websites and I see nothing about Gluten. I see info about allergies and wheat but nothing about gluten.

Thanks!

You have to ask at each fast food location. The key question: do you have a dedicated fryer for only the fries, or is the oil used for breaded chicken or onion rings? The onion rings are the most likely contaminant.

If they use the fryer and the oil for only the french fries, I know McDonald's, Wendy's, and Burger King fries are all gluten-free. The key question is the oil in the fryer, and each location is different so you always have to ask.

Chick-fil-A's are suppose to be gluten free. Love those waffle fries. ;)

McDonald's lists wheat in their FF, but they are processed to the point that there is no detectable gluten remaining (or considered safe for people with Celiac to consume):

You're correct. I haven't personally tried McD's, but I have tried Burger King and Wendy's and they are both OK if they have a dedicated fryer. The busier locations tend to have dedicated fryers, whereas slower business leads to sharing oil.

Keep in mind I'm not the most sensitive Celiac out there, but I'm also not the most insensitive. So be careful with your own health, too.

If you're on the west coast of the US, In 'n' Out burger joints have gluten-free fries. They make them from potatoes and slice them right next to the friers, which are dedicated only for the fries themselves. We've had to ask them to use clean gloves and such, but they have typically been good about avoiding CC.

I eat the fries at ChikFila with no problems. They have a dedicated fryer.

Nando's has dedicated fryers (and many meal options as well!) but the Peri-fries have HVP which MAY be wheat, but they put it on after so the oil isn't contaminated. I've never had a problem, I'm pretty sensitive.

Five Guys restaurants only do french fries in their fryers, so those are safe. In fact, the only gluten items on the menu are buns for the burgers and hot dogs. All of the toppings are safe (and the burgers are good!).

    •   I had a bone scan it didn't show any fractures, basically I left physical therapy in pain, it then went away. But my knee pain and tingling didn't go away so I tried PT again and I left it pain. Then I realized I had celiac and now all my pain is gone other then the back pain.. I'm basically worried I healed from the celiac and PT caused a whole new problem that never had to happen.
    • I am trying to find out if going gluten-free can cause low blood sugar. I felt so much better when going gluten-free, but now I feel weak, shaky, tired
    • Gaerty,  thank you for sharing this with me! You want to know something crazy? The night before you sent this I was googling "vitamin deficiencies linked to splinter hemorrhages" and an article came up about vitamin C deficiency. I can't remember the last time I took vitamin C or drank orange juice or consumed anything that has vitamin C on a regular basis. It's crazy that you responded to this post when you did. My splinter hemorrhage is razor thin and looks like it could be shrinking but it's hard to tell. Also it's not growing out of the nail bed. It stated more in the middle of my right thumb nail. I don't take a multivitamin mainly because I can't find one that doesn't trigger my anxiety. Trying to find a good one that doesn't have energy boosters in it like green tea and extra B vitamins (all my B vitamin levels are great). I haven't been tested for low C vitamin levels but I might have to now. I was tested for some of the base ones that most celiacs have issues with, folate, magnesium, B's, E's, and a couple others and all of them came back good with the exception of my vitamin D3 which in November 2016 was 16 and we tested it again in February, it moved up to 26. Still low but moving up. My liver numbers in October 2016 were bad but by February 2017 they were perfect. I had skin rashes, most of those have cleared up over the past 5 to 6 months, by about 85%, since I was diagnosed. This splinter hemorrhage came up about 7 to 8 weeks ago. Like I said it appears to be growing out but I'm still going to get it looked at.  Let me know what your doc says about the vitamin C levels. Also what multivitamin do you take?  Ps: I bought some clementines yesterday.  Thanks for responding!  Spencer 
    • Maybe try a rice based milk, I find the coconut flavoured ones really good with cereal.  
    • I guess they've never felt the political pressure the mainstream cereal producers were under in the age of rickets and pellagra? Plus there's not such a competitive market and its a cost manufacturers would sooner do without if they can, although if Udi's or Genius did start perhaps they'd get more business. I think I'll start eating flax seed again, that was good for fibre I think. I take a vitamin supplement also of course.
