Subway Restaurants is testing a gluten-free roll and gluten-free brownie in the Dallas-Fort Worth and Tyler/Longview, TX markets starting the week of January 10th. The gluten-free roll and brownie will give Americans with gluten sensitivities, gluten intolerances, and Celiac Disease another alternative to their diet.

All Subway gluten-free rolls and brownies being used during the test come prepackaged and individually wrapped. Sandwich Artists are instructed through a tutorial video to cut the roll with a pre-wrapped knife and only use once. The same sandwich artist will prepare the order from beginning to end, so only one set of hands will touch the sandwich, eliminating cross contamination. The process is very thorough to ensure a 100% gluten-free product. Extra measures are taken to ensure gluten does not contaminate other foodstuff such as meat, cheese, and vegetables.

We look forward to seeing Dallas-Fort Worth and East Texas residents take advantage of this new menu item during this testing period. Our hope is to offer gluten-free products nationwide.
