Gluten Free At Pret A Manger

23 January 2008 - 02:44 AM

Hello,

I was recently sent a list of gluten-free foods available at Pret-a-Manger, and I thought I'd post it on here as it may be useful to some of you. Especially concerning the soups, as whenever I ask, I just get stared at blankly!

They are now doing a wheat-free sandwich, unfortunately it's not gluten-free, but it's a step in the right direction.

So here is what we can eat from Pret:


Bakery
The amazing wheat free orange cake

Cold drinks
All drinks except: Pret Still Lemon Aid and Voom.

Crisps and snacks
Croxton Manor Cheddar & Red Onion Crisps
Dried Mango
Maldon Sea Salt Crisps
Nuts & Bolts
Parsnip Crisps
Popcorn Honey
Sea Salt & Mixed Peppercorns Crisps
Sea Salt & Cider Vinegar Crisps
Vegetable Crisps
Yoghurt & Nuts Rocks

Hot Drinks
12oz Cappuccino with or without choc
12oz Hot chocolate
Latte
Mocha

Pret Pots and Puddings
Chocolate Moose
Fair Trade Pineapple
Pret Fruit Salad
Raspberry Pret Pot
Seedless Grapes
Tropical Fruit Sticks
Very Berry Pret Pot

Salads & Sushi
Chicken Avocado Salad (no dressing)
Dolphin Friendly Tuna Salad (no dressing)
French Dressing
No Bread Chicken Caesar
No Bread Mozzarella and Tomato
No Bread Wild Crayfish & Avocado
Skinny Dip
Smoked Salmon, Wild Crayfish & Dijon Dressing

Happy (nearly) Christmas Everyone...and Don't Go To Starbucks....!

02 November 2007 - 04:49 AM

Hello. No, I know it's nowhere near Christmas!

Though our (sometimes) gluten-free friends at Starbucks seem to think it is and have started selling their Christmas drinks. I wanted to warn you all to not get too excited....

Stupid me didn't bother asking about the Gingerbread Latte as all of the other syrups are fine. I got sick :(.

I called their customer care line to see which of their Christmas drinks have gluten in, and I heard the three words I was dreading:

"They all do." :(.

I'm just going to have to get my Christmas cheer elsewhere...!

Starbucks Gluten Free

25 July 2007 - 04:47 AM

Hi everyone,

I thought I would share some information I got from Starbucks about gluten in their products as I have been searching around and couldn't find anything. I thought I could offer some info to anyone looking!

I was worries about the gluten content of their drinks as:
- The mocha syrup (in mochas, hot chocolates, chocolate frappucinos) is made from a powder which hot water is added to
- Cream frappuccinos are made from a powder which milk is added to
- Coffee frappucinos and chai tea lattes are made from a pre-mix which milk is then added to

I asked these specific questions and got the following reply:

"Thank you for contacting Starbucks Coffee Company regarding gluten-free products. None of our beverages, with the exception of our Strawberries and Cream Frappuccino,
are made with ingredients that contain gluten. However, the vanilla sprinkles
provided at the condiment bar for customer use does contain gluten. The remaining
toppings do not contain gluten."

So good news! :D :D

This was from the UK Starbucks customer care team, though I used to have a summer job at Starbucks and can confirm that they use the exact same pre-mix packs as they do in the US (it is all imported to the UK).

She is also talking only about drinks currently available - so any seasonal things like malt frappucinos or anything with chips in (cookie chips) won't be gluten-free. Also, the US probably have different frappuccinos available, but as the mix is the same, the plain coffee and cream frappucinos and those with syrup/sauce (caramel, vanilla, chocolate, espresso) will be gluten-free.

Cheery Topic!

Hi everyone,

I thought I would share my good mood with you all and maybe offer hope to those of you who are just beginning their gluten-free lives to show that it does get better!

I've been gluten-free since the beginning of February this year (so that's 3 and a bit months with no cake...!:P), and I can honestly say for the first time in a long time, I feel......normal!

Less tiredness, less bloating, fewer slightly more unsavoury symptoms (!), less mood swings; plus I am no longer constantly aware of my stomach being this brick inside me (I couldn't think of another way to put it!).

...though it does all come back for a few days when I'm accidentally glutened, overall, I feel amazing! :lol:

The Bbc Are Catching On...

Found on the front page of the BBC news website health pages - made me smile :). Well, the fact that the article was there made me smile, rather than the content of the article itself! It can only be a good thing if more people are going to their doctor and asking about Coeliac :).
