Tim Hortons- Calling All Canadians! Lol

12 posts in this topic

Has anyone here eaten the chili from Tim Horton's since going gluten free? Or the potato bacon soup etc?

I know these are gluten free ingredient wise. I understand for some things cross contamination could be a worry but...wouldn't soups be in a closed container and then thrown in that closed pot they keep it in to warm it up? Should their soups and chili be pretty much safe?

I'm going home next week and absolutely want to have my favorite chili lol NOT if i'm gonna get sick though.

I have a wheat allery and had a Timmies coffee and had a severe reaction. I guess the flour is in the air and settles on the cups and every thing else. I would not risk it again.

What about a Shoppers? One of those in the mall? Some have pre-packaged fruit cup thingy's, and all that which are gluten free. However, there is also the option of SOME and not all, but SOME Chinese food take-aways have pure rice noodles, or sauteed vegetables which are gluten-free.

New York Fries does have gluten-free chips, but the seasoning counter does have gluten present, so it depends on where the counter is and where you're getting the chips from.

I THINK it's a Lawton's Drugs in the mall. Like Shoppers but not Shoppers. New York Fries I thought was a good one but then i've heard of people being glutened somehow and figured some part of the buns for the hot dogs got into the oil? i dunno...very nervous. I personally don't even need seasoning on those so I was gonna avoid it but *sighs* There IS a asian place i think tho. Hopefully some plain steamed rice or rice noodles yeah *sighs* So irritating!

A comment from the Peanut Gallery:

There are many posts on this board where somebody insists that they were glutened at such-and-such a place or by such-and-such a product. Many of these posts are by folks newly diagnosed.

Often, these people are in the early stages of healing, and during this phase, the damaged intestine may react to anything. In my early recovery, I had some violent reactions after eating plain boiled white rice. My body was just not always ready for food, gluten-free or not.

So, take these with a grain of salt. Even as a long-term veteran of the diet, when I have an issue (which is very rare), it can be difficult to be certain where the cc came from.

Yeah I wondered about that too...seems i get a tummy ache here and there so maybe i should stay away from it for now...i dunno...maybe i'll wait a while and look at it as...maybe next time i visit i'll try it. I've only been gluten free. Like really putting in the effort to be completely since I found out may 10th. So....i guess i'll bring ziplock baggies of stuff in my bookbag i carry around.

My husband really wants Tim Horton's coffee so i suggested maybe he bring a thermos and get them to fill it to lessen the risk of cups with possible flour particles from the donuts and bagels in them etc. So some things may be more do-able than others.

I was never impressed with Tim's coffee--perhaps I am not really Canadian: my mother was from Minnesota. But I do get Starbucks in my travel mug from the one near my business several times a week. Never had a problem.

Hehehe hey we're all different people with different tastes *shrug* I like both Starbucks and Timmy's. Since living down here all we can get are Starbucks...we miss the fraps though. SO FAR...my husband gets iced coffee during the summer and is fine. We're doing okay without the fraps..hopefully we're not getting glutened by the coffee somehow but I doubt it as ...well..it's just coffee? lol

I eat New York Fries all the time at the mall and have never been glutened. Also Booster Juice (just no Boosters, at least one of them has gluten) and Qoola frozen yogurt.

There's a Lawton's in ours too...are you talking about the Avalon Mall?

The New York Fries at the Avalon Mall is good, because they keep their spices separate. Also you can tell them you have an "allergy to some things in the spices", so they'll be cautious.

Second Cup might have gluten-free baked goods.

    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
