I was thinking back today about foods I used to eat quite frequently and how I reacted to those foods. I don't ever remember reacting to Subway's bread, but perhaps I reacted but just not as quickly as I had to other products. Is this reason to question legitimacy of my gluten intolerance? Thanks!

some products contain more gluten than others. pure whole wheat bread has much more gluten than white bread. Subway doesnt have real whole wheat bread even though they have "wheat bread" options....i know white bread never really bothered me as much eirther. but I did get worse heart burn from it, just not as much gas/d/bloating as compared to white bread....

..hope this helps...

Thanks for posting this question, r0ckah0l1c. I was questioning the legitimacy of my gluten intolerance as well after I had a sandwich from a place called Jimmy Johns - which uses plain french bread. I remembered it never bothered me before, so when I decided to go back on gluten (to get tested) that was the first thing I ate and I didn't seem to have any reactions to it. I also remember realizing, right before my self-diagnosed gluten intolerance, that the plain, french, white bread at subway didn't bother me as much as when I would eat the 9-grain Honey Oat bread. I too started doubting whether or not Gluten was the culprit...and I'm still dealing with it..sometimes I know for sure and other times I wonder...

Honestly, I'm a little frustrated right now and wish I could have a straight diagnosis so I would know how careful I need to be, or if I need to keep looking for the problem. I too, like many others, would like the diagnosis so I have more credibility when telling others I can't have gluten. I've requested to have all my previous blood work sent to me to see what my levels were when they tested me for Celiacs last year. Maybe that will help me decide whether or not to go back on gluten in order to be tested again (pretty much went back to gluten-free after my moods went haywire again from a 3-day gluten challenge). :unsure:

Ugh..thanks for letting me vent...

OMG, maybe we can eat Subway. Maybe it's been gluten free all this time and we just didn't know it. :o

best regards, lm
