Taco Bell is one of the most popular fast food brands in the world and for good reason. Unlike many other restaurant chains, Taco Bell has made a huge effort to provide clear and transparent information about their foods' nutrition, ingredients, and allergens. This is great news for people who are looking to cut gluten out of their diet. We have analyzed Taco Bell's allergen menu and determined that there are 39 gluten-free options available at Taco Bell.
It's important to note that according to Taco Bell, these items are made without gluten-containing ingredients but are prepared in common kitchen areas, including common fryer oil, risking gluten exposure. Taco Bell does not recommend products for customers with celiac disease.
However, based on evidence from reviews and social media, many people with gluten sensitivity are able to eat at Taco Bell without suffering any side effects.
Taco Bell Gluten Free Items
The meat at taco bell is prepared without ingredients that contain gluten and 2 of their taco shells are also safe for most gluten-free diners; the Crunchy Taco shell and the Doritos Locos Taco shell.
If you're not looking for tacos, you can also enjoy a bowl from their Power Menu, with chicken, steak or ground beef and any of the other gluten-free ingredients we have listed below. Top it off with a bit of mild or fire sauce and you have a tasty gluten-free meal!
