Tcby Frozen Yogurt

11 posts in this topic

I am SO frustrated. I can't find anything out on their website, it's Sunday and I'm dying for a TCBY. I KNOW we discussed this on this board but I have searched every topic and I can't find it.

Please help-what can I have at TCBY and are there any cross cont. issues I should be concerned with?

Thanks, Jenn

Thanks, celiac3270! I don't know how you found that so fast-I didn't realize it was under the Coldstone Creamery topic!

In any case I had the TCBY and so far so good but i didn't know to ask them to clean off the machine..hopefully this will be fine. Do we ask b/c the cones can touch them?

Alot of their ice cream and frozen yogurt is gluten free. I have an email of flavors we can have that they sent me..if you want just email me and I will send it to you. We love to go to TCBY about 1 time a week :D

Well, I ate there and loved it! Did not get sick.

But I still would like to know why to ask them to clean the machine..hopefully whoever posted that will read this and answer!

I clearly must not be lactose intolerant b/c I felt fine after eating it and still do.

Can dairy bother you sometimes and not others?

I assume that they ask them to clean the shiver machine because it can be used to mix the yogurt with all of the other toppings that we cannot have. So, everytime I go, I ask them to get the toppings from the original container in the back and to clean the mixer so that there is no trace of the cookie dough, oreos, etc. on there.

I'm not sure what the shiver machine is. I don't get toppings, just yogurt out of the machine.

But, if you think about it, those machines might touch a cone from time to time.

I used to work at TCBY...and yes the shiver machine should be cleaned because they just swirl it in water after they make the shivers.The shiver machine just mixes the toppings into the yogurt. The shivers can contain gluten because of toppings such as oreos. If you get regular yogurt from the yogurt machine then you are fine.

Okay, cool. All I get is the regular yogurt. Should I be concerned, though, about it touching a cone?

The cone does not touch it...at least I never saw it while I worked there. It gets close but not to the point of touching. I wouldn't be concerned about that.

    • egs1707. Are you in Canada?  It's NOT a good idea to go gluten free between now & the GI appt. and here's why.... MOST of us have MUCH stronger reactions to gluten when we go back on it for the endoscopy. A lot of people have had such strong reactions that they have been entirely unable to complete the challenge and have to call it quits. This means they never get an official dx. It's your call, you make the choice. However, I will say that you don't have to eat a lot of gluten, a couple saltines or a slice of bread per day. 
    • You mentioned the tight head. Yes, both my celiac sibling and I had head pressure. Mine was horrible last glutening with eye pain as well. Like someone put a vice around my temples. I swore it felt like a parasite infected my gut, thyroid and brain. It is going away mostly, still have it on and off a bit.  My brother said his naturopath informed him some celiacs get a bit of inflammation in the brain.   
    • Hi All this is my blood test result 1.immunogloblulin serum 203 ( 87-350) 2.Deamidated Gliadin IGA  4 ( 0-19 negative) 3.Deamidated Gliadin IGG 3(0-19 negative) 4.Transglutainase IGA <2 ( 0-3 negative) 5.Transglutainase IGG <2 ( 0-3 negative) does it mean most likely no celiac ? thanks.  
    • At the moment it's microwave rice packets as it needs to be something easy for lunch at work. What do you choose for breakfast? At the moment I have gluten-free porridge oats with fruits but also seeing oats are a bit of a gamble in the early days. Trying to figure out how long a reaction takes to show up i.e. if I feel ropey later in the day is it really lunch as I'm blaming at present or actually is it something from the morning or even night before? The food is the toughest bit for me right now; wasn't that great with it before so will need plenty ideas from you good people... seems I'm in the right place though   
    • I know what you're going through - it's that grieving process and it's tough.  I was diagnosed in 2013, and aside from an occasional pity party, I don't look back. I have my restaurants where I feel safe, I have the food I know I can eat, and I get on with my life.  I'm lucky that I live in a big city with lots of options, but you can make this work, and you will feel better and once you do, you'll stop grieving.  The people on this site helped enormously. It is tough in the beginning to know if you've been 'glutened' vs. just going through withdrawal.  For that reason alone, it's best to avoid restaurants for a little while and be careful at home - just to be sure what's happening.  Eventually you'll be able to get back to your version of 'normal'.  Oh, I also have hypothyroid/hashimoto's.  No big deal, I take synthroid. Quinoa, eggs, nuts and beans for protein.  You don't have to go crazy on the cooking.  Just eat a lot of whole foods.  There are a lot of complicated recipes out there, but now may not be the time.  Rice noodles in veggie bouillon - easy and cheap.  gluten-free pasta with olive oil, parmesan and garlic - easy.  I eat a lot of rice and have never had a problem - you're not getting it out of one of those bulk bins, are you?  That could be contaminated.  Go with packaged.  Do you have access to the Macro Vegetarian brand of prepared rice dishes (in the refrigerated section).  They have several that are gluten free, they're delicious heated and with a little gluten-free soy sauce.  They're my go to on days I don't want to cook. Good luck!
