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.

    • Anyone done commercial testing?
      Thanks @LauraTX, @squirmingitch had recommended them before, and finally I've just joined up. I'll see about collaborating with them. 
    • Glutening symptoms five days to a week after consumption?
      Me too Missy.   Four days.  It has made sorting this out very difficult to say the least.
    • does your diet have to be like a perfection?
      First ~ Re-introducing gluten after so many years is an "old" thing.  I am 6 years diagnosed and I was originally told that  same thing by my Dr.  At the time my doctor was not  terribly familiar with Celiac and started doing research right along with me.  After she did more research on the (then) current studies she changed that to a "never eat gluten again!"  What happens, with some people (note I say "some"), is that once your gut does heal you enter into what can be called the "honeymoon" period.  Your gut is healed and you can consume gluten without feeling physically sick.  But...  and this is the biggy should you be one of those who can tolerate it.....  eventually you will get sick again.  And all during the time you were happily munching on gluten and not feeling physically sick the damage to your insides was still going on.  So... only you can answer if it is worth it or not.  I say no!! Second ~ I am 6 years gluten free.  I can count the number of times I have consumed gluten, each time was a total accident.   So, to your question on consistency, I would say it has been six years. And third ~ As for perfecting the diet, well, that can have several answers.  Yes, like most everyone, I struggled greatly in the beginning to learn what gluten was and where it hides.  My feeling of perfection came after about 3 years when I discovered the Paleo diet and went pretty strict Paleo.  That is when it became a very simple thing and my health improved dramaticly.  Personally, I would grab a Paleo book, see how simple g.f. can be.  Read about the effects wheat can have on everyone (not just those with celiac) and I think you will have an easier time of it.  Good luck to you.  !!  
    • Suspect Celiac, no medical access, options?
      Hi everyone, I'm new here!  So, I'll just give the short version first, and we can go from there.   I'm a 46 year old man who has had mysterious health issues my whole life, but only recently began to suspect dietary causes.  I am now quite sure that most of my issues for the last 40 years have been related to wheat, and now I am reacting to at least one form of Corn as well, as best I can tell on my own here.   I'm part of the US demographic that has fallen between the cracks in the medical system, and I have never felt like I had the luxury of medical help.  This is something I intend to work through in the coming months, as it's obvious to me I need some help here.  That said, I've read enough to know I would like to initiate the testing procedure.   Has anyone had any experience with using a walk-in clinic or the like to take the samples and handle the transfer to the labs to get the testing done?  I am imagining I could just walk in and get blood taken and instruct them which labs and what tests and be done with it, but.....?  I dunno, maybe it won't work that way.  At any rate, it's going to be a long, difficult process for me to figure out regular health care, and in the meantime, I'd like to figure out what's killing me here!    Any advice is welcome!
    • Gluten challenge. Random reactions of gluten sensitivity (brain fog)
      hi all, I have brain fog and I suspect that is due to gluten sensitivity.  When I became aware of those symptoms in the past, I did an elimination diet, and gluten introduction  seemed to correlate with the perceived brain fog Then, I was off gluten for a year, but because it is self-diagnosed it is not always easy to explain it and remain 100% gluten free when, for example, travelling or invited to someone's house for dinner. So, I thought I wanted to get to the bottom of this and check for celiac decease first. I have been doing a gluten challenge for the last 4 weeks, and my symptoms are very strange. Sometimes, I eat a slice of cake or a croissant and I can be tired and foggy for the whole day.  Strangely,  there are other times where i can eat bread or a full pizza and have no symptoms at all. Beer is strange, sometimes it affects me, sometimes it does not at all... I am not sensitive to Pasta so far... I am very confused. I thought that maybe it was because the consumed gluten quantity but there does not seem to be any correlation at all. Sometimes, I think that it has to be something else (not the gluten) that is causing those reactions. I cannot understand the random reaction to gluten.  Does anybody have a similar experience or an insight or what could be going on? Thanks!!!
