Gluten-Free Confidence Score: 8/10
Pad Thai is usually gluten-free, but not always. Pad Thai traditionally uses rice noodles (which are gluten-free), but some restaurants use soy-sauce (which may contain wheat) and sometimes fish sauce is added to pad thai (and a few brands of fish sauce contain wheat). So, it’s best to ask and confirm whether your pad thai is being prepared with wheat containing soy sauce or fish sauce. If you’re looking at buying pad thai in a store, please check the labels for any red flags. Please read the ingredient and nutrition label carefully.
