Dunkin’ Donuts To Offer Gluten-free Donuts and Muffins Across US

Celiac.com 07/15/2013 - For gluten-free Americans who love donuts, life just got a little bit better. That's because Dunkin’ Donuts has announced plans to offer gluten-free donuts and muffins in all its US stores by the end of the 2013.

Photo: Wikicommons--Anthony92931The Canton-based company field tested gluten-free products in a handful of locations around Boston and Miami, news of which generated considerable social media buzz.

This news is certainly much heralded by many gluten-free eaters, so it will be interesting to see what the response is like, and how Dunkin' Donuts fares.

Certainly, the timing is right, with the market for gluten-free goods continuing to see double digit growth, and predicted to top $6.6 billion by 2017.

Moreover, a recent survey by market research firm The NPD Group, Inc. found about one in three American adults say they want to reduce or eliminate gluten from their diets. For many people,

Dunkin’s wheat-free cinnamon sugar doughnut clocks in at 320 calories, compared to 260 calories in a regular glazed doughnut. The gluten-free blueberry muffin is 400 calories -- 60 calories less than the standard version. The company said the pastries will be packaged separately to avoid cross-contamination.

Those who must eat gluten-free, and might want to grab a donut now and then, will be pleased to learn that Dunkin' Donuts says that each donut will be individually wrapped to prevent contamination.

This sounds amazing to me. I have to eat gluten-free and I haven't had a doughnut or a muffin in forever!! I don't have a Dunkin' in the area that I live in but I would totally make the trip if intact they do in fact make gluten-free pastries!!

Marby, gluten-free muffins are very easy to make and they don't take that long either. Doughnuts a little more timely, but not hard. They freeze well too!
I wish the article told us that the gluten-free doughnuts would be produced in a gluten-free facility!

Udi's makes amazing muffins, sold in Kroger and Publix supermarkets. The Udi's blueberry muffin is amazing. Kinnickinnick makes great gluten-free donuts. So there are options available today on grocery. Looking forward to this launch by Dunkin. This will be a nice treat to purchase the gluten-free products right in a coffee/donut shop. Gotta think that Starbucks should follow suit pretty soon.

Since there's no mention of a gluten-free facility, there's no guarantee of cross contamination. I can't afford the hospital bill if there is. Until they're absolutely sure there's no cross contamination in making them, and not just in packaging them, I'm not buying.

Do a little more research and you'll find on their website that these are made in a certified gluten free facility...

Great job Dunkin Donuts!!

Yes.. Duncan Donuts Hooray on the GF pastry. In Trader Joes and Whole Foods look for Tate's Chocolate Chip Cookies...thin and crisp delish.

Bambi - Kinnickinnick's cinnamon sugar donuts are sold in the freezer section of many supermarkets, and they are delicious! There are other varieties as well, but the cinnamon ones are my favorite.

I am so excited :) I drove up to Boston to try the donuts and they were great!! Happy to hear that they will be everywhere, so no more hour and a half rides. Thank you Dunkin' Donuts, this celiac is very happy now to have something to go along with my iced coffee.

My 14 year old daughter and I tried both the blueberry muffin and the cinnamon doughnut when we were on her 8th grade class trip to NYC. The rest area had a Dunkin' Donuts and to our surprise it was wrapped individually on the counter. They were both very good! My daughter and her friends were so happy that now when they go to Dunkin' Donuts she can get something to eat.

Now if they can just make the calories more reasonable! ;-)
I'm thinking 100-150 range. Maybe a donut hole?

It may be gluten free but what kind of fat are they going to used to cook the donuts. Intolerance to gluten produces malabsorption of the fats so are you going to be able to digest the gluten free donuts which will be fried in the same oil as the non-gluten donuts. I use coconut oil for cooking because I can't really digest oils that have been degraded by continuous use. I use oil once and then through it out. Gluten caused a lot of damage to my intestines.

This article was just posted (2016) at the bottom of an article about Starbucks and their gluten free options. It is out dated and no longer applies. I checked with several DD´s locations in my area and none of them offer gluten free muffins or donuts. Furthermore, I checked the DD website and the items mentioned in the article are not even on their menu. The only gluten free options are some of their drinks. This article should no longer be referenced with current information. It was a huge letdown when I actually tried to purchase the items mentioned.

This is a great way for the average gluten intolerant person to find out what's going on out there. I travel to quite a few different areas of the country and am always saddened by the fact that popular chains such as Dunkin' Donuts and Starbucks do not have DECENT gluten free choices. My answer being a gluten free baker that makes 10's ONLY is simple, they must be purchased on a local level, ( eliminates the need for preservatives) and readily available. Otherwise those available choices will have preservatives. In addition, when I sold my products (mostly Brooklyn Crumb Cake and REAL pizza) they sold for more that $1.00 per ounce, and there is no money in baking. The labor makes it prohibitive, and mechanization compromises the integrity.

Hi everyone. I was just wondering if anyone knew of an easy way to determine whether one's gastrointestinal reaction is to gluten or to fructan. Cheers, Lex

Thank you i have the colonoscopy on Tuesday and am dreading the prep more than anything lol. I think what ever the outcome I will try a gluten free diet to see if it helps with the symptoms. I've read so many stories of people going gluten free and symptoms such as depression, anxiety...

A positive on any one celiac test should lead to an endoscopy/biopsies being done by a gastroenterologist. You should keep eating gluten until the endoscopy is done.

Hi LexieA, It's perfectly ok to grieve or feel down because of a diagnosis of celiac disease. Feelings are not obligated to perform on command. But, over time you can adjust to the new diet reality and even like it. Getting used to eating mostly whole foods and more natural foods is a goo...
