Dear Rachel,
Thank you for contacting Panera Bread. I have included below a list of our menu items that do not contain gluten-containing ingredients. However, because we bake fresh bread daily in our bakery-cafes and bread is core to our menu, we simply cannot ensure that there has been no contact between these items, or any other menu items, and gluten.

Not all of the items listed are currently on our menu and some new menu items have not yet been evaluated for the purposes of inclusion on this list. However, you can find complete ingredients listings for current menu items on our website. Click on Menu and Nutrition, choose the Bakery or Cafe menu, select a product category from the links at the top of the page, then click on the individual menu item to display a page with that item's ingredients and nutritional content.

Please note that nutritional information on our website is updated periodically. New products may be available in our bakery-cafes before a periodic update of this site. In addition, some menu items may be available only on a regional, test or seasonal basis. Nutritional information about these menu items is available at the participating bakery-cafes. Tests of new recipes of existing products may be conducted from time to time in certain markets. These new recipes may contain different/additional ingredients, including allergens, as compared to the original version. Nutritional information about these menu items is available at the participating bakery-cafes. For the most update-to-date information, please call or visit your nearest bakery-cafe to speak with a manager.

Thank you again for contacting us. We appreciate your business and value your comments.

Sincerely,
Pat
Customer Comment Coordinator

I'm getting kinda tired of eating at Chipotle all the time for a 'quick' meal and am tempted to try a salad or something from Panera. I haven't tried it yet, just typical gluten-paranoia. So what's the general consensus on Panera... Have others eaten from here successfully?

Panera is amazing! I have eaten there successfully many times. I always get the grilled chicken ceaser salad because it is my favorite, and theirs is so yummy. It seems like they have lots of soups too. And you do not have to get the bread on the side, they have chips (i think they're ok, I've never gotten them) or an apple.

I haven't had any problems, but I do want to start asking for it to be made in a clean bowl just to be safe.

Attention, this thread is from last year. NEVER assume anything in a restaurant is gluten free without checking with either the chef, the manager, or if a chain, the customer service dept and then the individual restaurant itself.

There was another thread where someone at the soup at Panera's and got sick afterwards even tho they asked for it without croutons.... I researched it, and of course the recipe had regular flour in it, and the waitress had told them it did not. This is typical with some chain restaurants that do not have a set gluten free menu and have not trained their staff on what gluten free is, and how to do it. Yes, people really are that dumb that they don't know flour is made of wheat or they don't know all the ingredients because they don't cook. This is ridiculous to trust any sort of soup made from scratch from a restaurant that does not have the entire facility dedicated to cooking gluten free, especially in a bakery restaurant where there could be flour flying loose anywhere. Soup pots sit out simmering all the time and the cooks are always replenishing the ingredients.
