Gluten Free At Pret A Manger
0

5 posts in this topic

Hello,

I was recently sent a list of gluten-free foods available at Pret-a-Manger, and I thought I'd post it on here as it may be useful to some of you. Especially concerning the soups, as whenever I ask, I just get stared at blankly!

They are now doing a wheat-free sandwich, unfortunately it's not gluten-free, but it's a step in the right direction.

So here is what we can eat from Pret:

I just bought a Wheat Free Salmon & Egg sandwich. I asked at the counter if it was gluten free, they checked and said yes. However I was suspicious and called the Head Office who confirmed it is not. On the sandwich there is a symbol of a grain of wheat crossed through - very similar to the crossed grain symbol. If you get an opportunity, please point this out to Pret a Manger.

Hi; yeah, their wheat free bread is actually rye bread. The amount of people who don't realise that wheat free doesn't necessarily mean gluten free is rather large - it doesn't surprise me that the people at pret don't know. They're so clueless in pret!

I did notice that their label looks a lot like the cross grain symbol - obviously they didn't do their research!

Though I guess it is a step in the right direction :)

Be wary of Pret!!!

They were handing out free oatmeal in Manhattan today and the worker tried to tell me that it was gluten-free because it was organic. Not so, in fact, as I called their headquarters and was told that it was not.

Then they tried to tell me that they had sandwiches made with gluten-free rye bread, which as far as I know, doesn't exist.....

So be VERY careful going there,, and know that their lists of "gluten-free foods" may not be correct.

May want to consider aking contact with them and getting them better information.

Be careful out there, fellow celiacs!!
