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!!

    • Hey guys so question. I still am going through some of the motions to finally be diagnosed. I has a really bad case of acid reflux a few days ago and now i feel soo sick. Im still eating gluten because i got a negative biaopsy test but ive been told thag i more than likely still have it because its really hard to detect. Well i drank beer last night and had a poutine today stupid i know and now i feel soooo sick. And only felt really sick after the poutine. Now my question is can your symptoms get worse all of a sudden??  I have many other symptoms thaat read celiac deisease for most of my life. But since all doctors told me you have anxiety ibs and fibro at 28 years old. I just baiscally gave up and figured this was going to be my life feeling like crap for the rest of my life. Any thoughts??? Thanks guys. Sorry for the novel lol

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?
