wtf? Mcdonalds is NOT gluten friendly
Terrible for any allergies. They had no idea what to do. They had to ask 2 or 3 people before someone told me to check their website. On my phone the website was useless and I never did find any allergen info. From another app I found I could have a sausage patty and a smoothie. Had to eat a snack from my stash to feel full. I'm appalled at such a big corporation completely ignoring the food allergy community.
I have celiac but I don't recall ever getting sick on the fries here even tho they do have some in the oil or something. supposedly they tested but it was below 20ppm gluten.however 4 days ago I got sick. I had 2 large fries and a chicken bacon salad with grilled chicken and Newman's ranch dressing. one of these items made me pretty sick and I won't blame it on any one specific item. possibly the grilled chicken or even the dressing. I will update perhaps sometime in the future. I will test the fries alone again at some point and will see as I don't remember ever getting sick from the fries. Future update: got sick from 2 large fries, tho I can't confirm 100% since I had wheat starch earlier in a candy I thought was gf. so for now avoid this chain, nothing is really safe for Celiac's. go to chick fil a instead.
There are no gluten free options any where at the returant
Humblina was SOOOOO AWESOME with me! I'm soooo allergic to gluten I haven't been to McDonald's in years!, but I heard about their protein style burgers and she listened to me so carefully and made sure my food was totally separate and safe! Finally! A quarter pounder for first time in almost 5 years! Love this girl and thanks so much!
Fries are not gluten free. They are dipped in beef broth, which contains gluten. Recently released a statement that there is nothing on the menu that they can state is gluten free.
McDonalds is McDonalds. I am cautiously optimistic about the new Create Your Taste possibilities for the gluten free community (lettuce wrapped burgers anyone?), but I don't know how well we can expect them to keep from cross contamination. It is McDonalds after all. Don't eat the fries (definitely cross contaminated with the non-gluten free hash browns.) In short, ask, but don't expect a great deal of knowledge. Read the ingredients list on the website (and Gluten Free HQ) and ask about the preparation here. If you aren't highly sensitive, you can probably get away with it every now and then. (I periodically get a strawberry shake or coffee drink neither of which should have any cross contamination issues.)
Fries are gluten free!!
I asked if I could see a gluten free menu . The employees response was "we don't have one" I said well are your French fries gluten free? The employee then handed me a packet with all of the food they sell with the calories next to each (which didn't answer my question what so ever!) I then told them that and they said "we can't answer allergy questions" well okay then; how am I supposed to eat? Me guessing your food is okay is not worth me getting sick over.
