Wendy’s Joins the Ranks

Yup, that’s right, Wendy’s has now joined the ranks of fast food restaurants publishing gluten information on their websites. As of February 2011, they published a list of regular menu items that contain no wheat, barley, oats or rye.

You can see the complete list in this PDF: Canadian Menu Items without Gluten.

Some surprises in the list:

  • hamburger patty
  • Frostys

How many of us are afraid that burger patties are gonna be full of filler? *raises hand* So that’s kind of awesome. Also, Frosty’s? I’m always a little skeptical of ice cream too, so this is freaking good news! You can bet I’ll be partaking in some Frosty-goodness this summer.

Also, I love that they include oats in this. I know oats don’t technically contain gluten, but a lot of those with gluten issues also have problems with oats. And I’m one of them. I can’t tell you how much I hate hate hate picking up an item marked “gluten free” and not being able to eat it. So, more awesome from Wendy’s.

Ok, I’m done saying “awesome” for today.
