About GlutenFREE

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.

GlutenFREE has written 84 articles so far, you can find them below.

Carls Jr. or Hardees as of June 26, 2007

While unconfirmed with Carl’s Jr. or Hardees, responses from other Celiacs would indicate that the “Six Dollar Lettuce Wrap” or the “Low Carb Burger” is Gluten Free!   Responses are mixed for the fries, but the consensus says that if the fries are fried in a dedicated fryer, they are GF.

With many of the products here, it is always best to ask the personnel on hand to double check.  We all know what it feels like to eat Gluten by mistake!

Elizabeth’s Lemon Ice Cream Pie


  • 1 Cup Almonds, Toasted
  • 2 Cups Gluten free Corn Flakes
  • 2 Tbs Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup melted Butter
  • 1 Quart Vanilla Ice Cream
  • 6 Ounces Frozen Lemonade concentrate
  • Fresh or Frozen Raspberries (Optional)

Take ice cream out to soften. Coarsely chop the almonds. Combine Almonds, gluten free corn flakes, brown sugar and melted butter in a food processor. Process until the consistency of graham cracker crumbs. Press crust mixture into 8 or 9 inch pie pan. Set in freezer to set.

With a clean food processor, combine ice cream and lemonade concentrate until well blended. Spoon mixture into pie crust and put back in freezer until a few minutes before serving. Garnish with optional raspberries.

Dairy Queen as of June 20, 2007

The following is a response from Dairy Queen International on Gluten Free foods at DQ restaurants.

We know dealing with gluten intolerance can be very
difficult and Dairy 
Queen would like to help you enjoy your favorite
Dairy Queen treats while 
still following a safe diet.  Unfortunately, we do
not have a complete 
list of gluten-free products at this time, but
hopefully the following 
information will be of assistance to you. I have
also included the link to 
our nutrition calculator below, which I might add,
is totally awesome. It 
let's you choose anything and everything and it
gives you all of the 
ingredients in it!


We are proud to inform you that both our DQ vanilla
and chocolate soft 
serve are gluten-free, in addition to our Arctic
Rush™ slush. 
Additionally the following toppings are gluten-free:

·         Chocolate

·         Hot Fudge

·         Marshmallow

·         Butterscotch

·         Strawberry

You may also want to try our one of our MooLattes®
without whipped topping.

Additionally, our supplier of manufactured novelties
informs us that the 
following items are also gluten-free:

·         DQ® Fudge Bar

·         DQ® Vanilla Orange Bar

·         Dilly® Bar (look for this in a sealed
plastic wrap to ensure it 
is a manufactured Dilly Bar)

If you would like to try one of our famous Blizzard
treats, the following 
is a list of gluten-free Blizzards.

·         Reese’s® Peanut Butter Cup Blizzard

·         Butterfinger® Blizzard

·         Snickers® Blizzard

·         Heath® Blizzard

·         M&M® Blizzard

·         Hawaiian Blizzard

·         Tropical Blizzard

·         Strawberry Blizzard

·         Mint M&M® Blizzard

Please know many of our Blizzard candies and
toppings contain wheat, rye, 
oats, and/or barley and would not be safe for a
customer with gluten 
intolerance.  As the Blizzard machine is used for
all flavors, 
cross-contamination may occur on any flavor
Blizzard.  So for your safety, 
we recommend notifying the Dairy Queen staff of your
allergy or 
intolerance and requesting they thoroughly clean the
Blizzard machine 
before blending your Blizzard to reduce the risk of

From our Brazier food line, I would recommend trying
our Homestyle® and 
GrillBurgers™, or our hot dogs, all prepared with
out a bun.

Certain Dairy Queen restaurants use a soft serve mix
that varies from the 
mix used by restaurants in the rest of the country
and on which this 
information is based.  Please know some Dairy Queen
restaurants also sell 
food that is not the licensed Brazier line of food
products.  This 
information on food products applies only to the
Brazier products served 
by authorized Brazier restaurants.  Please check all
of this information 
regarding food and treats with your local

Please note that as Dairy Queen stores are very busy
and there is always a 
chance of cross contamination of gluten in any DQ
product.  To reduce the 
risk, please mention the nature of your allergy to
the DQ crew member 
before placing your order.

The nutritional Calculator is of particularly good use as you can pick from any item on their menu and it will give you not only the nutritional content like your used to on most packaging, but also the ingredients of each of the components of the item.  Very handy!

It’s also handy to remember that in many cases you can ask them to remove certain ingredients and still get the ice cream you love, just modified for a Celiac’s Gluten Free diet.
