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?

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.

    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.  
    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
