Commonly asked questions ordering gluten-free at Burger King
Are Burger King fries gluten-free?
According to Burger King’s allergen menu, Burger King French fries are also cooked in a shared fryer (not a separate fryer), meaning they have a high risk of cross contamination with gluten ingredients. These French fries are not safe for those with gluten food allergies and wheat flour allergy.
Does Burger King have a gluten-free bun?
In some countries, Burger King offers a gluten-free bun option, but it hasn’t made its way to US locations just yet. So if you eat at a us-based burger king and your on a gluten-free diet make sure to order bunless burgers only!
Is the impossible whopper gluten-free?
As described on their official website the impossible whopper is a a flame-grilled, plant-based patty with juicy tomatoes, crisp lettuce, creamy mayonnaise, ketchup, crunchy pickles, and sliced white onions on a toasted sesame seed bun. So if you remove the sesame seed bun, its one of the best gluten-free meals you can order at BK!
Are Burger King patties gluten-free?
Burger King doesn’t have a lot of gluten-free options. Some of their ingredients, even a few of the patties used on their burger patties are gluten-free but they use shredded lettuce. This essentially means if you want to order a gluten-free burger, you’ll be getting all the ingredients minus the bun. You can transform the lettuce though and make it a lettuce wrap!
Are Burger King sausage patties gluten-free?
Burger King does have gluten free breakfast options. The Burger King breakfast items that are gluten free include their omelet and their sausage patties.
