Udi's Gluten-Free Buns Coming to Jersey Mike's Subs

Celiac.com 11/21/2017 - Jersey Mike's Subs sandwich chain is known for its in-house baked bread, and tasty submarine sandwiches. To offer gluten-free buns for its customers, Jersey Mike's has partnered with Udi's. Starting in December, Denver-based Udi's will provide fully cooked, individually wrapped gluten-free buns at all 1,320 Jersey Mike's locations nationwide.

The Udi's gluten-free bun will cost customers about an extra $1.50 for regular gluten-free subs and $3 for "giant" subs, according Jersey Mike's chief operating officer Mike Manzo.

To their credit, Jersey Mike's did not rush this through. The company worked to test the buns at over 200 locations in six states over a two year stretch. According to Manzo, the company focused on gaining customer trust, and building the project slowly.

During that time, Jersey Mike's also worked with the Gluten Intolerance Group to develop procedures and a training video to prevent cross-contamination for people with celiac disease.

To avoid cross-contamination, when making a gluten-free sandwich, workers must wash their hands, change their gloves, wipe down the work counter, and put down a separate sheet of clean paper. They then make the sub.

Beginning Dec. 4th, 2017, you can look for Udi's gluten-free bun at Jersey Mike's locations near you.

I have stood there and watched them make my sandwich and they do the bread in the back they bring it to where the meat is etc. they do have it on paper. BUT then they put the mayo on with the same knife they use on the wheat bread.

While a diagnosis is nice to have, it is possible to remain gluten free and LCHF. My hubby has been for over 16 years (long before my diagnosis). There is no way he would consider a challenge (we like to pay our bills!) Just because you have the genes to develop something, does not mean i...

I buy EOS which marked Gluten Free. I can get it in bulk at Costco in yummy flavors. If you are in doubt or in a pinch, try Plain old Vaseline or Coconut Oil.

Enis_TX: Thank you for the reply. I'm doing Atkins/Keto/Paleo combos so I would love recipes or tips! I started with Atkins but they use a lot of sugar alcohols in their products and those don't agree with me. I still use the tracker but I've switched to more fats with the Keto macros rather than...
