I hope this is the right place for this. tim hortons is sort of a restaurant.

Anyway, does anyone know if tim horton's yogurt and berries are gluten free?

It would be something i could get when i'm out and craving fast food. If it's gluten free that is.

Okay, I just went to the Tim Horton's website and this is what they have to say:

If I have an allergy, can I eat any Tim Hortons products?

If you have a food allergy, please be aware that Tim Hortons products may contain, or have come into contact with, peanuts, nuts or other possible allergens. Tim Hortons is a bakery environment, serving baked goods that are not in sealed packages. Therefore, we unfortunately cannot guarantee a 100% allergy-free environment.

If you would like more information about ingredients or allergies, please call our customer assistance line at 1-888-601-1616 (Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time).

I would like a copy of the Nutrition Guide sent to me.

Our website gives you the option to print off a copy of our Nutrition Guide (Canada or U.S.) right away. Hard copies of our nutrition guides are not currently available in our stores.

That's it. I researched this almost 2 years ago and at that time their stated allergen policy was that if you had an intolerance or an allergy they actually said "please do not eat at any of our locations".

Okay so that being said, you'll have to download the PDF file online or contact them to find out if the yogurt is originally manufactured gluten free.

mtdawber-just remember that NO FOOD at any restaurant or from any manufacturer that is not cooked, processed, baked or otherwise made in a strictly gluten free environment, is gluten free-it is NOT. Only foods made in those specific environments can be called gluten free. Lots of restaurants and manufacturers like to say that their products are gluten free but they are made alongside, in the same area as and in most cases with the same equipment that is used for making gluten containing foods. This food is "gluten not intentionally added" because there is always the chance of cross contamination. They don't actually put gluten containing ingredients into the products, but they may end up in them unintentionally. So remember that when you are inquiring about mainstream products or you are planning on eating out. You will always take the risk of cross contamination.

That being said as well, you will find that many or most of the celiac disease and DH sufferers on this web-site dine out and eat mainstream "gluten not intentionally added products" and don't mind the risk involved. :rolleyes:

Have fun with the fruit and berries :lol:

Hi there, thanks for the information. It makes sense. I'm not sure I could give up my Tim Horton's.... if I don't feel better soon, I might have to! Today, I'm off to buy a new toaster that the rest of my family will not be allowed to use... :ph34r:

Don't forget a cutting board, use your own butter and any other food item that your family may feel like putting their own cutlery into after it's touched a piece of bread or other non gluten-free item (ex. jam, peanut butter, pickles, mayo, cheese etc....) I used to mark all my food but we found it just easier for me to take a door pocket in the fridge and use it exclusively for my stuff. It was easier for the kids to learn that they were not to touch anything that was in that pocket. Beware of cross contamination from dish cloths and tea towels that have been used to wipe crumbs from tables or counters. Also, check to make sure any soaps, shampoos, conditioners, body washes, makeup or other beauty products that you use do not contain gluten. I see you are very new to this so I'm not sure what kind of info you got at the beginning. If you're like me, you'd never heard of celiac disease or DH before you were diagnosed and the doctor told you to "avoid gluten" and promptly left without explaining how serious or how EXACTLY you are to go about avoiding it. So sorry if these are things you already know, I just want to make sure that you've got some info to go on before you accidently glutenize yourself because you didn't know.

By the way...did you come up with an answer for the yogurt question?

Okay just for everyone's information I just called Tim Hortons and they said that the yogurt and berries is gluten free HOWEVER,she also said the product is shipped in bulk to each individual store where they open it and portion it out themselves into each individual container. SOOOOOOOOOO I would have to say that if you eat this product you take a VERY GOOD chance that it will be cross contaminated!! This is why Tim Hortons discourages people with allergies or intolerances from eating there.

What about McDonald's fruit and berries? I wonder if it's gluten not intentionally added and if it comes in bulk to each individual store or if it comes already preportioned?? Perhaps that could be a good substitute?

The McDonalds one has granola on top. I don't know if the granola comes in a separate package.

In Canada the granola is on top in a seperate, sealed container.

I was in Canada over the holiday (I'm from Kitchener originally) and ended up in a car full of starving folks who decided to go through Tim's for lunch. My work around: ordering a "sandwich" minus the bread, and the sauces--and I asked for the cheese, etc. to still be individually wrapped, etc. so I could at least limit CC. I didn't realise the turkey wasn't real turkey (duh) but lunch meat so ended up just eating the cheese (don't know if it was gluten-free or not) and lettuce.

Of course--the drive-through person thought I was nuts, or joking with them. Ended up going up to the pick up counter and explaining the situation to them. They were very accommodating. However--I'd probably avoid eating a sandwichless sandwich again.

Coffee remains gluten-free!

I talked to Tim Hortons. All drinks, including hot chocolate, all yogurt, chili and turkey and wild rice soups are gluten-free. Now I have had the chili and the soup it is excellent and I did not get poisoned. However, one has to be aware that the building is full of gluten so you could get some in it by accident.

I have been told by the owner of Tim Horton's here in Ashland, Ky. that the yoguart with Berries is gluten free.

    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Welcome, @iwillmoveamountain! Of course you are not wrong to pursue getting testing for celiac. My advice is to drop that doctor and find a new one, preferably one who is celiac savvy, and who will listen to you and test you for the disease.  
    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Hi! I was hoping some of you might be able to tell me if my symptoms seem like good reason to be tested for celiac disease... I actually asked my doctor to test me (years ago) and she told me she would not test me because the test is expensive... However, I am now desperate to figure out how to manage my health issues and am willing to find a doctor that WILL test me if my symptoms seem to point to celiac...Here they are:
      I have been diagnosed with all of the following over the last 12 years (I am 22 years old, and have always been a healthy weight/slightly underweight, and quite active):
      Irritable Bowel Syndrome Fibromyalgia Anorexia (started when I was 10, I have been mostly recovered since I was 14) Depression Anxiety Panic Attacks Horrible mood swings (from suicidal to totally fine in a matter of minutes)
        Chronic constipation and bloating Acne   HOWEVER, no one in my family has been diagnosed with celiac....am I wrong to think I have it??
    • Weird Reaction
      Yes, I was surprised about the MSG in broccoli as well. I just had a quick look now as I couldn't remember where I had read it but some mushrooms have it to. A Google search will bring up a few things. I always just thought MSG was an artificial food enhancer!! Insecticides are still a big possibility though. Why do you not want to try organic? We buy organic when we can and fruits and veges that are in season are usually the best and cheapest.  Thank you for the link, Cristiana. Very helpful. I have an appointment with my Naturopath in a couple of weeks and going to have a blood test done before that. She is excellent. Very knowledgeable and loves her work. Until then I'm not taking any supplements. I generally eat pretty well anyway so we'll see what she says. In the past I have used B12 injections (aka Neo Cytamen) which I found much better and safer than taken orally and very cheap. The energy boost was very noticeable. I didn't know it helped with anxiety though. She has also had me on Magnesium, Probiotics and Vitamin D3 and I also make my own Liver Tonic (Milk Thistle, Dandelion Root Powder, L-Glutamine, Taurine and Choline Bitartrate) which I use from time to time for a quick detox. Too much of anything can be bad but I think iron can be not real good in large amounts. Deficiencies can be related to gut health and/or competing for absorbtion with something else you may be taking I found. I'm no expert though but just a few things I've picked up during research. My normal GP told me to just eat some more red meat but I want to speak to my Naturopath first before supplementing. Her knowledge on nutrition is a bit more up-to-date.  I was just sitting there at lunch today after feeling great all morning and had a "weird feeling" come over me. Just a not quite right feeling. Very hard to describe and nausea seems to have returned to. It's funny that as I get older any little thing I get I seem to think it's life threatening even though all the tests I get back say I'm in good health. I guess that's part of that dread and doom and gloom feeling I mentioned earlier. Wish that would go away.  
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      There are great gluten-free pizza crusts out there, as well as good dairy free cheese. I find the key is to add good toppings, e.g. meats, carmelized onions, other veggies, white anchovies. Life goes on. Congrats. Hope the good feelings keep up. 
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      Just want to update incase anyone can find this helpful. I have stopped eating grains and dairy and everyday I'm feeling more and more like myself. It's amazing and I don't really care that I won't eat a regular pizza again. I mean 4 months ago I would have said I would die without gluteny soft pizza, now I am happy to never eat it again if it means I will never have to suffer a panic attack.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
