While out on the go, finding a gluten free fast food meal can often be difficult. Throughout most of the country, there seems to be a McDonald’s or Burger King on just about every corner, making those both desirable places to have gluten free options.
Most people seem to have a pretty good idea about McDonald’s gluten free options, but what about Burger King? Here at Gluten Free Restaurants, we’ve put some time into trying to obtain a complete Burger King gluten free menu, but haven’t gotten anything official yet. It seems that big corporations like Burger King have legal departments which won’t allow them to confirm much (if anything) is in fact gluten free.
That leaves us to dig through their ingredient information on their official website. So far the only items we’ve been able to confirm are in fact gluten free are the following:
- Tendergrill Garden Salad (bring your own dressing)
- French Fries (these are naturally gluten free, but confirm your location uses a dedicated fryer!)
- Pop/Sodas and milk
That is based upon the information available in Burger King’s official ingredient list (PDF) and allergens list.
Unfortunately, this is not a very extensive list, leaving a lot to be desired for someone on a gluten free diet. If you are forced to eat fast food, give Wendy’s a try, or McDonald’s if that is the only alternative in your area.
Update: Burger King has finally released an official gluten-free menu, which can be viewed here (PDF). Nothing impressive, but it is nice to have official information from the company!
