Panera Bread Gluten-free List
0

15 posts in this topic

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.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
