Gluten is a common name for the protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. Unfortunately, this protein affects people in different ways, and not everyone can enjoy these foods without experiencing some side effects.
Luckily, there are ways to avoid or limit gluten, so you don’t have to completely give up the food you love to eat (like Taco Bell, obviously). Check out the complete list of ingredients made without gluten below or play around with our allergen tool here to see which menu items best suit your needs.
Also, if you have a favorite, customized Taco Bell order made without gluten, share it with us using #TacoBellMenuHacks. Some Taco Bell ® 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. Customers with gluten sensitivities should exercise judgment when ordering.
Important: The Chips and Nacho Cheese Sauce doesn’t contain wheat, but it does contain gluten. According to the Taco Bell website and sources we have talked to, they use white ground corn for their chips, not flour.
In early 1950, the area around Bell’s Hamburgers and Hot Dogs was saturated with similar restaurants which led Bell to decide to incorporate other menus in order to stay relevant. At this time, he noted that the Mexican restaurants across the street attracted long lines of customers because of their hard-shelled tacos.
Over the next two years, he dined there with an attempt to reverse engineer the hard-shelled tacos recipes. A friend suggested he combines his name and passion and call the new restaurant Taco Bell.
Therefore, in 1962, the first Taco Bell was opened, a simple 20-foot by 20-foot Spanish style stucco building. In 1965, Glen sold his Franchise to Kermit Broke and in 1967, over 100 Taco Bells had been scattered throughout Los Angeles.
In 1997, PepsiCo spun off its food chains including KFC, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut into Kentucky based Yum brands. In 2015 Taco Bell launched delivery via Door Dash and also online ordering.
All restaurant and fast food trademarks, service marks, trade names, product names and logos appearing on the site are the property of their respective owners. TacoBellglutenfree menu options have become the trend since several people might be sensitive to gluten -contained food.
From rich kids to tech startup geniuses love this place and the prices. As its name suggests, this meal is exclusively made for those who get a midnight craving attack, when most fast food restaurants are closed after 11 PM.
However, this fast-food chain that serves Mexican food might not be the safest place for those who have an issue with gluten. According to the company, Taco Bell provides several menu options that don’t contain gluten ingredients.
It consists of refried beans, lettuce, tomatoes, spicy sauce, and shredded cheese, along with a crunchy total shell. Our Power Menu Bowl and Black Beans & Rice are among the options made without gluten.
Peanuts, tree nuts, fish, and shellfish are not used in regular menu items served at Taco Bell restaurants. These allergens may be used in Test and Limited Time Only (“TO”) offerings in certain locations.
We have a user-friendly allergen tool available on our website to help you customize meals to meet your dietary needs. It lists the ingredients that are prepared with other common allergens, such as eggs, milk, wheat, or soybean.
Sizeable and widely diverse menus, convenient hours, and affordable prices draw patrons to Taco Bell restaurants by the millions on an annual basis. Both corporate-owned and franchised locations offer similar menus featuring Tex-Mex staples like tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and nachos as well as several specialty items unique to the fast food chain.
Individuals with specific dietary needs must indicate so at the onset of orders to avoid contamination from unwanted ingredients. Every option contains less than 10 grams of fat, which serves as the basic premise for the particular portion of the menu.
Customers should expect to consume 100s of milligrams of sodium per serving of nachos due to the salted corn chips used as the bases for the menu items.

“I’d add guacamole for a little more calories and heart-healthy fat, which will help keep you full until your next meal or snack.” “This would be my top choice because it provides protein, fiber from the beans, vegetables, and tons of flavor,” says Janeiro.
“Also, it's a reasonable-sized lunch portion, so you won't be eating thousands of calories at lunch that leave you feeling lethargic and unmotivated to bring your A game when going back to the office for the afternoon.” She recommends nixing the sour cream and asking for extra veggies to bump up the fiber content and add more vitamins and minerals. Meatless options are often lower in saturated fats and higher in fiber, says Emily Cooper, R.D.N.
“Choosing items that are open-faced (like hostages) save you some empty calories from the massive flour tortillas often used in fast food burritos,” says McDowell. Anita Mirchandani, registered dietitian and spokesperson for the New York State Dietetic Association, says the grilled breakfast burrito is a solid choice.
“Eggs make it a good lean protein option. Since it’s lower in calories, you could pair it with fruit or another side,” she says.
Cooper adds, “Ask for additional veggies like romaine and tomatoes to give your tacos a nutritional boost without adding a lot of additional calories.” “At just 80 total calories, black beans provide an additional source of protein to add to your meal, as well as fiber that will help keep you full,” says McDowell.
“They’re relatively low in sodium and are a great meal option to complement your additional choices.” Christine Yu is a freelance writer, yoga teacher, and avid runner who regularly covers health, fitness, nutrition, and wellness for outlets like Well + Good, Women’s Health, Runner’s World, and Outside.
