Arby’s as of August 8, 2007

From an email from Arby’s:

Proteins, without bread or buns: roast beef, ham, turkey, corned beef and Grilled Chicken Fillet. [Breaded chicken fillet and tenders and the Diced-Grilled are NOT GF.]
Cheeses, natural and processed.
Peppered bacon.
Baked potatoes only [Plain, or with butter and gluten-free seasonings. About 10% of our restaurants offer baked potatoes.]
Fresh Fruit Cup.
Milkshakes.

I cannot recommend any of the other potato products, though, because, in their cooking at the restaurant, there is the chance they will share fryer-space with wheat flour-based coated items. And then you should be made aware of this: the Curly Fries are coated, and there is gluten added as a part of that formulation and preparation by our supplier. Their preparation in the same oil as that used for Homestyle Fries and Potato Cakes takes out all three as option.”

“If you are aware of our re-designed website, www.arbys.com 20
(http://www.arbys.com/) , then you know it shows something about food allergens or sensitivity agents. You need now only be able to check components of the menu items, and this tactic should work: select nutrition from the cover page; select the category of interest lets use the Arbys Chicken Naturals as an example then select to view the allergen listings and go. Next, beside any specific menu item in a category for example, Chicken Fillet Sandwich Grilled hit the triangle that appears to the left of the name, and see that a component listing displays with an option to look at ingredient statements just wand over that option, and the ingredients appear. Unfortunately, one cannot print from this display. Or, you can look at the dots indicating the presence of major allergens in each component. This nutrition section will show you the ingredient lists for almost all the components of our menu items. On this last point, perhaps you should consult the website to be certain of menu items, such as condiments, being GF.

Not the best of news for Celiac sufferers. A very limited list of Gluten Free items and a longer list of items that could be if they took certain precautions in their preparation.  Unfortunately, they don’t.  It looks like that eliminates Arby’s from most lists of places to eat out.

My wife has Celiac Disease. I started this website as a way to record some of the information that I am learning along the way, and to help others who suffer from Celiac Disease by having a dependable resource for that information.
It's very calm over here, why not leave a comment?
