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.jambajuic...m/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. =]
