Does anyone know if Jamba Juice smoothies are gluten-free?

How about Starbucks? Regular/decaf coffee are gluten-free, right? What a about a nonfat vanilla latte?

I'm going out today and will come across these places...need to know if it's OK to get something!

I just called Starbucks less then 5 minutes ago...all of their beverages are gluten free except the Java Chip(the chocolate chips are not gluten-free) also the fappuccinos with the brownies are not gluten-free(obviously) he said most of those are discontinued but that if they still have them in some locations they are not gluten-free. All of their pastries are obviously not gluten free. I love their drinks though!!!!!!

Just make sure they clean out the blender, because peoiple before me get protein boosters, and once they didn't wash it out they just poured it and rinsed once, I got really sick then.

I would suggest not taking any type of protien or powders. I've noticed they use the same scoop/spoon when picking the powders. Just a suggestion.

I didn't think of the scoop issue; thanks for that tip!

According to their website, all but two of their boosts are in fact gluten-free. Only the Vibrant C blend and one other have gluten; the protein is gluten-free.

I had the protein last week in my smoothie and I feel fine.

But, if they mix the blender/scooper that could be a problem. I always ask them to make sure to clean the blender but I didn't think about the scoop...needless to say I might just stay away from the powders altogether.

I also noticed at one jamba juice the smoothies were all lined up directly underneath the powders, which were spilling quite a bit. Also, the employees were grabbing scoops and putting in in blenders, letting some of the contents fall into the freezer onto the sorbets and yogurts..that scared me a bit as well!!!

It's a year later and I've just gotten off the phone with Starbucks. Starbucks recommends us to stay away from products with chocolate in it. There is no gluten in the chocolate but it comes from a factory that has wheat in it.

On the starbucks issue, i didnt see this mentioned but they also have a malt frap that we need to stay away from, and always always ask them to clean out their blenders as well. Sometimes they just do a quick rinse, which doesnt get the residue off enough...but i love all their other drinks.

Nicole-

is it the chocolate in general or certain drinks, cause i know they have like a mocha frap and white chocolate mocha.....?

I gave up coffee in September so I don't make frequent trips to SB. Although I had a huge craving for a Cafe Mocha so I called the 1800 number..... The guy was super helpful and said everything was gluten-free but to stay away from everything that has chocolate. I asked if this included Cafe Mocha and he said yes. :( That being said, I'm assuming Mocha overall should be restricted.

He did point out that there is no gluten in the chocolate itself but the chocolate is made in a factory that handles wheat products. It's up to you to if you want to risk the whole contamination thing.

Hi I was just diagnosed with celiac last week and it’s been very hard for me. My birthday is coming soon in May and I always have a birthday cake. Now that I have to stay in a gluten free diet I’m sad to thinking that I might not have a cake this year. Does anyone can recommend where to buy a birthday cake in NYC or a good recipe?thanks

Aww...you can still have cake! In NYC, you're in the perfect spot! If you can't find it in New York, where CAN you find it?

There's a place called Babycakes in Manhattan, which I hear is good, though I've never been. http://www.babycakesnyc.com/

Or you can make one with a mix, like Namaste or Pamela's! Most pillsbury frostings are gluten-free, just read the label. Welcome to the board!!! :lol:

My mum and I modified our old chocolate cake recipe to be gluten-free and it's delicious! I'll type it up for you tonight and post it. The first few weeks are the hardest because you still have to read every label and research all the ingredients. Give it a month or two and it will be a lot easier for you.

Just got off the phone (1-800-235-2883) with Starbucks customer service they stated that mocha or chocolate is gluten-free, however the company they buy the chocolate from runs the risk of cc because of shared lines. This includes drinks such as white choc mocha, or the mocha fraps.... ;) So drink at ur own risk!

Thank you so much, I appreciate all the help that you nice people are giving me. Some time I feel lost and overwhelm with everything that's happening. I'm also schedule to have my gallbladder remove on May 5th this was the reason that the doctor discover my celiac, very scary time. I have a one year old son and his is so important to me so i have to care of myself for him.

i had my gall bladder taken out 5 years ago, my GI thinks thats what triggered my Celiac's, anywho, dont worry its sounds worse then it is, if your getting it done laproscopic u will heal a lot faster, you will be sore so make sure u take those pain killers, it will feel like u just did 1000 sit ups. Heres a helpful hint when u feel strong enough get up and walk around the house a little it actually feels good. i remember they used some type of gas to expand my abdomen area, and they said it will dissolve away on its own but u can help it along faster if u walk around. it feels like a little gas pocket moving around, when u lie down it goes up to ur shoulder, doesnt hurt, but its not comfortable. also if ur watching something funny on tv, make sure u have a pillow on ur belly and put pressure on it, laughing as fun as it is, will make ur muscles ache. But believe me if ur gall bladder is giving u problems, u will feel 100 times better after its out!!!

wishing u a speedy recovery :)

They were all gluten-free last year for the exception of the malt and brownie drinks, they must have done more digging into what was really in their drinks, so they can cover their behinds ;)

Hi there,

This is my first post to this group but seeing as Starbucks has recently changed something that USED to be gluten free, I thought I should let people know. Starbucks told me previously that a vanilla-creme frappaccino (made with UBB + vanilla syrup) was gluten free. The vanilla bean was not gluten free due to contamination.

However, Starbucks no longer has UBB!! They now have something called CBB or Creme Beverage Base. This is no longer fat free (it is half-half) and I think they also changed other ingredients as well. The last time I was in Starbucks, I had the woman behind the counter read off the ingredients on the CBB and one of them was maltodextrin. Argh. I cannot even begin to tell you how disappointed I am...

So, I just called Starbucks and spoke with someone who is doing research on the ingredients in the CBB.

Will let you know when she gets back to me.

Maltodextrin is generally safe. :)

It sounds like it has WRBO in it, but it doesn't. I believe it's derived from corn.

    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      I agree Katie, the gluten challenge isn't worthwhile for some people.  Regardless of your test results, I think you know the answer is not to eat gluten anymore.  I hope you recover quickly from the damage.
    • Last posted 2013 - Improving health
      I am glad you are feeling so much better!  Your posting will encourage others.  Thank you!
    • Last posted 2013 - Improving health
      When I first started this journey, roughly 11 yrs ago with symptoms, I had no clue. Eventually, having no luck with doctors (hypochondriac or psychosomatic), I googled my symptoms over and over looking for something... ANYTHING... that would give me a clue. Among other issues, my insides would not move, I was turning gray, felt like death, and had a persistent cough. I can't remember who but someone had posted on the forum and I found some of my symptoms. Eureka, I immediately began a gluten-free diet to see if it made any difference. Of course that was a journey, not realizing what products contained gluten. Long story shorter – first I went gluten-free, symptoms began to reappear, then it was soy (first organic was okay, then not), symptoms reappeared, took out corn, symptoms reappeared, then it was all grains. So the last couple of years I have been grain-free plus no sulphates. Actually, truth be told, my Celiac pharmacist gave me the recipe for health. I asked her if she liked a certain product. She answered, “I don't know, I have never tried it.” I asked her what she did use. She replied, “Nothing out of a box, a bag, or a bottle.” And that has pretty much been my life for the last couple of years. There is the odd product I try but it always has an after effect and I have to way the consequences against the enjoyment of it. I am one of those who react to 1 crumb in the butter, flour dust in the air, sulphates in anything, sometimes things that don't even seem like they would be a problem, like avocados and blueberries when I am contaminated. January 2016 I began this recitation. It is now May 5th, 2016 - Here I am 4 months later and I feel like screaming to anyone who will listen, “Things are improving!! My gut is healing!!” So what happened?? Someone suggested digestive enzymes. My insides were so compromised that I couldn't eat much besides fruit, veggies, and meat; all plain, all without being touched by people other than me. I could barely stand salt at times when I was compromised. Haven't been to a restaurant in years since I am not in a city that would have one to cater or understand this much of a problem. I started digestive enzymes but I read the label wrong and started with 5 first thing in the morning. Whatever... I began to notice improvements in what I could eat. Not anything different but just that I could eat without feeling ill or having my gut shut down. I stayed on those for a month and a half.. then I picked up a parasite from someone living in a very unclean apartment and visiting there and helping to clean. Well, that was a huge battle. I had to eat to discourage parasites. But in the process my insides began to heal dramatically. I was eating blackberries, drinking garlic keefir (which I couldn't have done 5 mths ago and gave me the first clue my insides had improved substantially), drinking oil of oregano or peppermint oil drops in a glasses of water, eating cabbage and green roughage. Drinking water with apple cider vinegar in it and Aloe Vera juice. After a couple of weeks my insides were a whole different story. I had a feeling of wellness that I hadn't had for years! I FELT like trying to eat something different. So I decided to try Gluten-free Rice Chex. Haven't had them in years.... and I am so happy! I can eat them!! (Not to say they are healthy, cause they are processed crap) but I didn't get sick and that was the amazing part. So now I am beginning to try a few things that would have set me back previously, I have made my own crème brulee because I have always been able to eat eggs. But the sugar was causing problems, but now it's okay. The issue I have now is that I want to try things too fast so I am having to exercise restraint. So here is it – parasites are very common, everyone has them however whether they cause problems depends on your immune system. Does it not makes sense that they would cause leaky gut? An over abundance in the gut would destroy gut tissue and take nutrients from a person and possibly put holes in the gut leading to food reactions? Digestive enzymes help to destroy the protective coating around parasites. Foods that discourage them or kill them are blackberries, garlic, cabbage, oil of oregano, peppermint oil, aloe vera juice, Braggs apple cider vinegar and more (google to find). I found medication didn't do anything so I turned to all the other. So this is how it is today. I don't suggest it is the answer to anyone else's problems but when I found this site, hidden in the posts was the beginning of the answers for me.  I may still be gluten, soy, corn intolerant but I am feeling so good now and I just thought I would tell someone.  I just wanted to share. Thanks for reading.
    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      Not to mention my hips and knees are killing me and I have really bad calf pains and horrible bloating after just 3 days of glutening. I don't think I could live like this for a whole week.
    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      I saw my gi today and he said to not worry about eating gluten. I have abdominal pain in the small intestine area and referred pain in my back, indicating pretty bad damage. So I'll just go without the gluten and do the genetic testing if needed.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
