Aak! Glutened!

Glutened by Wendy's!!! Don't get me wrong. I've had many a safe meal at Wendy's, but I went to one that's in a, how shall I put this, more ghettoey neighborhood than the one I usually go to and now I'm sick. I was paying more attention to the tv than to my fries when I put something delicious and crunchy in my mouth! I looked down to see fried chicken crumbs. I wish I could say it was tasty enough to make up for how I feel right now, but I'd be lying. Boo!

"Can I have some special fries that were cooked just for me that won't come into contact with any breading? And can you please not spit on them even though you earn minimum wage and my request sounds ridiculous to you? Thanks!"

If they cook other things in the oil, there are going to be little pieces of the breading in the oil. That isn't thier fault, just a "fact of frying". People with Celiac don't eat fries made in a shared fryer.

The one I usually go to has a separate fryer. I guess I'm spoiled by that location and I assumed... I won't assume next time! I only got diagnosed a month ago, so I'm learning.

Sorry to tell you this but Wendy's new natural fries are NOT gluten-free...So you got glutened by the fries them selves plus the oil in which they were fried in...

Some burger king fries are okay but each joint needs to be checked to see if they have dedicated fryers...

Plus when fast food cleans the oils they all go into one big vat for cleaning & then put back into the fryers.So if you are a super sensitive person no fries may be safe enough for you except at home...no place I know of separates the oils dedicated & non for cleaning...

Five Guys & Red Robin have gluten-free fries& Chik-fil-a

Not accordinging to Wendy's. They list them as not containing gluten but possibly fried in the same oil as gluten.

I just searched to see if I still had the note from Wendy's when the new natural fries came out a few months back but I guess I deleted it. But they stated to me that the new fries were not gluten-free dedicated fryer or not! Maybe they have changed their ruling since introducing the new fry....

I also just checked on the nutritional page & all fries are listed as containing wheat....

I just looked on Wendy's website -- the nutritional information opens in a pdf file and the natural fries do NOT contain wheat. On the chart they have a blue dot which means that they "may be fried in the same oil as other foods" (or however they worded that). The items with the RED dots are the ones that actually contain wheat.

So, the natural fries on their own do not contain wheat. You just have to ask for your own individual Wendy's to find out about the fryer. My Wendy's has a dedicated fryer which is not even near the one that they use for the nuggets. I've been eating these fries for ages and have never had any reaction.

This is not true on the US Wendy's site . I'm not sure they are in other countries. Just as I said and the post above this one has said, they list them as not containing gluten but the potential to contain gluten if fryed in a shared fryer.

    • Sounds like she's not into the whole thyroid idea, but is willing to check the t4. She also wants to check for other autoimmune diseases as she said some of my symptoms could match up with other issues. So I'm eagerly awaiting the blood draw.
    • Thank you so much for the reassurance! That makes me feel a lot better and ease some of the anxiety going through this lifestyle change.  It is so amazing to me how much our bodies are impacted by things they don't respond well too.  Luckily I haven't discovered much of the gluten free replacements yet. I'll definitely avoid those through this beginning phase until I start feeling better especially when I feel like I can eat all day long!  The list of foods with the low GI rating was super helpful also! Thank you for taking the time to offer some advice. I need all the pointers I can get at this point! 
    • In the doctors office right now, just had the vitals taken.... and hoping my doc of the day is sympathetic to symptoms.
    • Wow, I can just see you in that doctors office and the look on their face.  I have never had a monte cristo sandwich sadly, but I sure want one now. thank you for sharing your great story!
    • Yes! I'm one of the first people to import bag balm to the uk and can attest to its wonderful moisturising power. I use it often and haven't detected any side effects at all. In fact, moost of the time I forget it's on. Moore and Moore people are using it over here and moo moo mooo the moo of moo. When moo the mooo moo. Moo moo juicy grass, moo moo moo moo, can't stop chewing, moo moo, keeps my new tail moist,  moo moo, moo...
