Taco Bell Chicken

9 posts in this topic

I can't figure out of Taco Bell chicken is gluten free or not. I eat it a few times and today is the first time I've felt sick after eating it. I've written down the ingredents of the chicken that I will add below someone please tell me is this gluten free or not. Thank you so much in advance for any help.

Chicken Breast Meat with Rib Meat, Water, Seasoning [Maltodextrin(Corn, Potato, Tapioca), Spices, Salt, Garlic Powder, Yeast Extract, Carrageenan, Paprika, Onion Powder, Disodium Inosinate, Disodium Guanylate, Citric Acid, Tapioca Dextrin, Modified Corn Starch, Natural and Artificial Flavors, Inactivated Yeast, Chicken Powder, Grill Flavor (from Sunflower Oil), Dehydrated Chicken Broth, Chicken Fat, Trehalose, Smoke Flavor, and less than 2% Silicon Dioxide and Soybean Oil added as Processing Aids], Modified Food Starch, Sodium Phosphates.

*NOTE* To cook this chicken it stays in the bag it comes in and it is put in very hot water for 30 mins then cut out of the bag and put in a pan it never touches the oil from the fryer

Modified food starch is the culprit I see. You can't be such which starch it can from and/or they could have changed brands of m.f.s. so this time you got glutened as opposed to another time. I don't eat anything with m.f.s. Other though is cross contaminants this visit.

Be well, Kate

Modified food starch is the culprit I see.

I respectfully disagree. MFS is usually corn or tapioca.

If those ingredients are on the package that the chicken arrives at the restaurant in, then they are subject to FALCPA and wheat, if present, must be explicitly declared.

For what it is worth, in my eleven gluten-free years I have never seen a verified case of MFS being wheat.

On the ingredients list they are putting "contains wheat" if there is wheat, so there is not gluten in the chicken. I'd guess either you got CC'd or just plain food poisoned.

I'm curious what you are ordering because hardly anything is gluten-free they way they make it on the menu. It would be handy to know something to eat at Taco Bell since they're open really late. Did you get them to put the chicken in a hard taco shell or something?

I'd worry more about CC at taco bell than the actual ingredients. Who knows who touched what in there.

I'm curious why you'd be willing to put something in your mouth with so many additives. Just go buy a chicken breast and bake it. You'll save money and you wouldn't be eating scary stuff.

Ok...I see in another post that you work at Taco Bell. I will say it's very possible that you could become glutened through the course of your general work day by touching gluteny foods or touching items that people who have touched those foods have touched and then touching your mouth. Nothing in the ingredients seems to contain gluten so I'd say CC is the culprit!

As lynnelise pointed out, you just posted twice on another board saying that you are an employee and that "Taco Bell is a NO NO" since everything is cross-contaminated. Given those comments, why would you be eating the food "a few times" if you are gluten-intolerant? May I be so bold as to ask if you are STILL an employee?

Well what I do is put some chicken in a bowl and add nacho cheese and sour cream and eat it like that. The new dorito taco shell is gluten free at least at my store according to the box so I've put the chicken in that. My favoite way to eat the chicken is when we have the flatbread sandwiches because it brings in the bacon ranch sauce and it's yummy. The hardshell taco is not gluten free again at least not at my store according to the box. By the way for people who make the mistake of ordering the taco salad sub chicken for beef please check with the store because at my store all fried things are fried in the same fryer so the shell has cc check with your taco bell before ordering.

    • Congratulations!  😊
    • KALE! It really is a super food. Lots of Vit C as well as other vitamins & minerals. Now I know you wanted something to drink but I'm just saying kale is hard to beat for nutrition. You can add it to liquids but yes, it does tend to have a strong flavor. As far as OJ goes, I rarely ever drink it & that includes pre-diagnosis. Every time I have tried bought OJ, it just turns me off, doesn't taste good. Actually it tastes fake to me. I did grow up where citrus grows & we were always eating oranges right off the tree or squeezing them for fresh OJ. It's hard to appreciate the store bought stuff when your palate knows the real thing.
    • Optimistic! (Insert jumping up & down with joy emoji here) You are doing GREAT!!!    Kudos!
    • 9 years ago I was over 200lbs, health started going down hill in college and dropped to under 125 3 years ago. Gaining weight again and now it is muscle. I found I had to add in KAL nutritional yeast to my meals at least 2-6tbsp a meal for the stuff I was not getting due to food intolerance and removing processed foods. Stuff really does help quite a bit. I also take liquid health supplements like the Stress & Energy. The binge eats  I STILL get years later, find myself just fixing a extra glass of protein shake and a nut flour and egg white bread when I am still hungry or mindlessly munching on almonds and seeds. Heck today was 7 egg white spinach omelette with nutritional yeast in it, 4 cups of homemade almond butter/almond milk sugar free icrecream with 3 scoops of protein powder, and then I had 3 pieces of coconut toast, a few hand fulls of pumpkin seeds, and then kept munching on a snack mix I made of hemp seeds and cocoa nibs. >.< I am gaining weight slowly again and up to 130lbs for a 5'11" male >.> I think my hunger might stem from working out alot recently. Bit of a list here from stuff I take and others https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/116482-supplement-and-foods-you-take/ PS if you new to this diet check out the 101 thread will help you out alot avoiding CC https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ I would help you out with foods but the EU/UK area I am not that familar with and sourcing I am sure some of our other members can help you out.
    • Once your tTg is in the normal range, and it's only 1 point away from that, that would be considered excellent results.  tTg just has to be in the normal range to be called a success.  The number you want to be as low as possible within the normal range is the DGP or AGA testing, as that tests for dietary compliance.  This is why it is a good idea to run both tests because it gives a more complete picture.  But with these results I would say you are doing an excellent job with the diet!
