Jamba Juice Update On New Boosts!
0

5 posts in this topic

Hello Jonathan,

Thank you for taking the time to contact us. I apologize that I gave

you some older information and we have recently reformulated our boosts.

Please ignore my last email on boosts. All Boosts and Super Boosts

are gluten free except for Daily Vitamin, Energy and Heart Happy. These

three do contain wheat

Don't hesitate to contact me directly if you need anything else.

Sincerely,

Alexandra Rodriguez

Thanks for posting this, I've been avoiding the boosts. I also checked on their website and found this information in their FAQ: http://www.jambajuice.com/what/faq.html . :)

However, also note this FAQ item:

"Allergen concerns?

Although we are sensitive to food allergies and the special dietary needs of our customers and seek to accommodate your requests, please be aware that trace amounts of ingredients that you did not order (i.e., peanuts) may be transferred from serving utensils to your food."

I know they wash out the blenders after using them, but I don't think they scrub them. However, only one smoothie and a few of the boosts have gluten in them, so the chances are probably pretty low of cross contamination, but if you are sensitive, you may want to be cautious.

As far as Jamba Juice goes, if you skip the boost & the enlightened smoothies (which they may not have anymore but the liquid base is not gluten-free) you will be fine.

The concern that the blender may not be perfectly clean is a real concern if you are easily glutened. As a former Jamba Juice employee, I can tell you with certainty that on busy days, blenders do not get scrubbed as well as usual and boost could definitely still be on the blender, especially the sides. Do NOT hesitate to have them wash it again, Jamba Juice prides itself on doing special things for each customer. If something goes wrong, again don't hesitate to send in a comment through their website, the stores actually do get these comments AND do get in big trouble for making customers unhappy!

Also, their nutritional book's format changed COMPLETELY and the boosts section is worthless for anyone w/ allergies. Look up the specific smoothie you want and this will give all the necessary information. I had a Peach Perfection (all fruit, no boost, awesome!) today :)

Hey! So, my friend decided to get a smoothie from Jamba Juice to share with me and she got the Daily Vitamin boost because they said it was gluten-free. I looked it up online to double check and found this so we called back to say that we found online that it said that the Daily Vitamin wasn't gluten free and they informed us that they've changed all their Daily Boost recipes so that they are gluten free. =]

    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet
