I was wondering what celiacs have been getting at Burger King recently, and if you would be willing to share that with me. I have not checked in awhile. The website lists food with allergens, but only wheat is a common allergen so I am not sure about the food containing other no-no's for celiac patients. Thanks!!

The Burger king across the street from my work has a huge poster on the wall listing all thier ingredients and allergens. I have only ordered french fries, after discussing dedicated fryers with the manager. I'm also going to check every time I go that they didn't fry anything else in there that day. Not that I go to BK often, but every now and then I gotta have a french fry.

At BK you're not going to get hidden barley or rye (I've never seen hidden rye anywhere). All you really need to worry about is the wheat.

BK is pretty good about accomodating me when I ask for a burger with no bun. They fix it in a small bowl, and make sure there were no crumbs first. My only complaint is that one time, I asked for a regular whopper with no bun, and was charged double for it because it was an Atkins-friendly "meal". You just have to be careful and ask!!

I should have mentioned that a dedicated fryer can mean different things to different companies. A while back BK used to rotate the oil in their fryers so although nothing but fries were being cooked in their dedicated fryer on a particular day, it could be that the oil was from a fryer that cooked onion rings the day before. The people at headquarters were doing spot checks in different locations to make sure this was not happening, but it was. I have gotten onion rings in my fries there many times, even when told the fryers were dedicated. I think some people just do not know what it means.It is hard because the stores are all independently owned. Anyway, I like McDonalds much better so I did not go to BK much after hearing about this problem. But sometime there are no McDonalds around so I was wondering what other gluten-free people ate there.

No matter what any resturant says about gluten-free items, the oil friers are probably the easiest place for gluten-free-foods (ie french fries) to get gluten. Personaly I just do not get deep fried foods while out, have my own frier for that at home. If you do want to risk it, thats fine, but I HIGHLY advise you grill the heck out of them about the oil. Most french fries (I do not know of any expections??) are gluten-free before they get in the oil...

Yesterday, I had a Whopper with Cheese and no bun, and french fries. I was so sick last night, and I thought it was the fries, but reading here, we can have them. There must have been cross-contamination in the fryer...

Uuuggghhh...

I was a huge BK eater before I found out I had celiac disease. Now I usually only order fries and diet coke-less calories anyway. They also have garden salads with grilled chicken breast that I've eaten and not gotten sick from. The dressing is gluten-free also, if you get the ranch dressing.

I think I may have to send them an email. Here's the link if anyone else wants to bug them about it too...

Drewsant, The BK website lists the ranch dressing as having wheat in it, doesn't it? You said the dressing was okay, if you got the ranch. Did I read something wrong or misunderstand you?

Also, I forget who mentioned most fries are gluten-free before going in the fryer, but that is not always true. A few years ago, BK actually had breaded fries that were awesome!!!!!!!! They were then discountinued and the regular fries were reintroduced. In addition to that trial at BK there are quite a few restaurants that have battered fries, so please be sure to ask so you do not get into trouble!

But, back to BK-are the regular burgers gluten-free when ordered without the bun? The list I looked at had most of the burgers low carb, but did not list wether or not the smaller burgers were gluten-free without the bun.

And how do people know the food is okay unless wheat is listed??????

THANKS!!!

My family loves BK, and I gave in one night and let them go through the drive through, thinking I would eat something later at home. But I ended up getting their garden salad, and added my own dressing at home later. I was wonderful. Of course, don't we all eat salad all the time if there is no other choice??? :P

I don't think the fries would be safe. Too many times my family gets them and ends up with a bonus onion ring in it.

And since when are oreo's safe? They are most definitely NOT gluten-free.

That's not good! We never got those but I did get a piece of chicken for my daughter. It used to be gluten-free. Guess I should check the menu again.

    •     http://www.takepart.com/article/2014/08/11/coffee-adulterated https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/how-was-your-morning-coffee-did-it-taste-like-mud-v6rfdmrrr92 http://grist.org/food/coffee-taste-like-dirt-thats-because-it-might-be/ " Using liquid chromatography, which identifies the individual chemical components of a mixture, the Brazilian scientists found wheat, soy bean, brown sugar, barley, corn, and rice commonly interspersed with the grounded coffee they tested. Large amounts of wood and dirt were also prevalent, an issue not only for purists who prefer to drink their coffee black, but for those with potential allergies to the unknown additives. As TIME reports, the scientists are identifying the rogue coffee with increasing accuracy:" http://www.bodyandsoul.com.au/health/health-news/is-there-wheat-hidden-in-your-coffee/news-story/a3d53a7c36b76156f08d89eab6a396b3   -----   I have also read other references to coffee upsetting those with celiac.   Personally I have a family history of officially diagnosed celiac even though I have never been diagnosed myself..then again Ive never been properly tested. My drs just keep saying the following symptoms are anxiety and wont refer me to a gastroenterologist for:   Loss of bowel control, pale coloured stools, severe bloating, passing undigested food, ataxia, vertigo, migraine headaches, feeling feverish, repeated ulcers on my tongue and in my mouth, feeling generally ill and sleep issues (mostly falling asleep when I dont want to but rarely insomnia).   Because they insist its anxiety as routine blood tests are normal they wont refer me to a gut dr. They did do a blood test for celiac once on my request but it came back negative. This does not phase me when it comes to my suspicians that gluten is an issue for me because:   1 I was on a gluten free diet at the time, hence why i was well enough to crawl to the gps office. 2 I have a family history of celiac 3 MY symptoms are alleviated by a gluten free, dairy free, oat free, corn free diet..and lately, coffee free it seems. Coffee has indeed become a problem for me recently. 4 I could not tolerate gluten based baby foods as an infant. I was admitted to hospital as a baby for being underweight because I was vomitting all my food up. They put me on gluten free formula and i was fine, stopped being sick and gained weight. I could have grown out of it but considering the symtpoms i get on a gluten based diet, i really doubt it.   -----   When it comes to the coffee, food manufacturers will do most anything to make profits if they think they can get away with it. We live in a world where money is most important and if they do get caught...they can always claim they have no idea how the barley got in there!    
    • If you have had a sleep study and been diagnosed, you have sleep apnea. It's definitely different than waking up to go to the bathroom. Are you using your cpap every night for The entire night. Naps too? SA can actually cause death so it's very Important for you to use it every time you sleep. Do you follow up with your doctor yearly? Sorry to sound like the SA police, but I know someone who died from it. He wasn't using his cpap anymore, thought it was uncomfortable.     What Is Sleep Apnea?   Sleep apnea (AP-ne-ah) is a common disorder in which you have one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep. Breathing pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes. They may occur 30 times or more an hour. Typically, normal breathing then starts again, sometimes with a loud snort or choking sound. Sleep apnea usually is a chronic (ongoing) condition that disrupts your sleep. When your breathing pauses or becomes shallow, you’ll often move out of deep sleep and into light sleep.
    • Summer sausage, rope sausage or link sausage? what were the ingredients? Msg makes me dizzy.
    • I found it confusing as to whether this was gluten or free not.  However, I've not had gluten in two weeks now and had Hillshire Farms beef sausage this morning and my head is literally spinning.  I'm going to assume I shouldn't have eaten it.  It was good......but will avoid it from now on.
    • I've suffered with this for a very long time and never knew it was part of celiac. At age 13 I had the very first episode that I can recall.  Much later in life I had the bad peristalsis that accompanies celiac and would suffer for up to an hour after the initial symptoms began accompanying the D.  Mine would courteously wait until later in the mornings as I would get up at 4AM to get ready for work, and then it would burst upon the scene at about 7:30 AM with a vengeance.  Finally, 17 years ago, I did a search on my computer for causes for D and learned it could be caused by wheat, or celiac most likely.  Afterward I visited my MD who poopoo'd the idea that an adult could possibly have have celiac, her words "That's a children's disease".  She then sent me to gastro for a Sigmo, and it was then labeled IBS.   The symptoms continued until I got all the glutens out of my diet and then there was mostly quiet in my gut.  Then 10 years ago she sent me back to gastro to have a look at why it kept happening, had both upper & lower GI and the old Doc could not confirm anything as by then there was healing. Had it been caught back when I was 13, sure the food choices would have been plain foods instead of the cool pies and cookies offered at home, but better health. BUT, yes Night D does accompany celiac disease.
