Looking for the Panda Express gluten free menu? Well look no further because you won’t find one… See what I just did there? haha.
I grew up making trips to the mall with my friends and eating lunch at the food court. Panda Express was a staple in the South Park Mall food court in Charlotte back in the day. Today it is still popular. I just saw one with a mile long in the airport two days ago!
Panda Express Gluten Free Options
What are your gluten free options at Panda Express?…Well there are none. I’m not going to beat around the bush on this one ladies and gentlemen. Maybe the white rice is gluten free?
They come right out and say it on their website:
“Panda uses ingredients that contain all the major FDA allergens (peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, fish, shellfish, milk, soy and wheat). Panda prepares its products fresh with shared cooking equipment and therefore allergens could be present in any entree. We do not have any vegetarian, vegan or gluten free products.”
Their allergens page does list the following as not containing Wheat:
- Brown Steamed Rice
- White Steamed Rice
- Sichuan Hot Chicken
Not a lot to work with there… I appreciate their openness. Seeing their assembly line approach to making your meal I can see how it would be hard to keep items gluten free.
They don’t even make an attempt though. It’s pretty disappointing…
Move along…nothing to see here folks
If you are in a pinch and need a meal, the Panda Express gluten free menu is not the gluten free choice you are looking for. It simply does not exist!
