Burger King’s Gluten-Free menu comes with some caveats, the biggest one being that Burger King’s kitchen isn’t set up to offer a truly gluten-free meal. When you drop in at a Burger King and are affected by a gluten allergy, you’ll need to choose carefully from their menu while understanding that every order is a roll of the dice. As such it is strongly recommended that those with severe gluten sensitivities avoid this restaurant entirely. For those willing to take the chance (or who can’t beat their Whopper craving), there are ways to make it safer.
