Do you think that the soup is actually gluten free?


I usually try to avoid eating out as much as possible. Olive Garden has a “gluten sensitivie” menu (obviously not celiac safe, but decided to risk it) I ordered a salad (does not come with croutons on it) to go. I also ordered Zuppa Tuscana because it was the only soup on this gf menu. I surprisingly had no reaction. Do you think that the soup is actually gluten free or just within the 20ppm threshold? I have seen people post Zuppa Tuscana gf recipes so this is where my question stems from… ? please no judgements, just trying to figure out if I just got lucky or if it really is gluten free (not including possible CC of course).

  1. It’s also possible that damage was done but you didn’t feel it. It’s often referred to as ‘the honeymoon period’

  2. I am extremely sensitive. I have occasionally had to eat at a restaurant with a gluten friendly menu. I just ask them to be as careful as they can, I know there are no guarantees. Generally speaking, I do fairly well. Kudos to Iron Hill Brewery on that one, for example.

  3. Every copy cat recipe I’ve seen is naturally GF – as long as GF broth, sausage, etc is used – so it could actually be safe (CC aside, of course)

  4. It isn’t roux based.

  5. I’m gonna guess it’s just within the 20ppm threshold bc that would also encompass CC.
