Hi everyone,  new here!  And I'm and just wondering why my subway says " gluten friendly bread " and not gluten free??  Does that mean it has gluten in it still or what?  Every site online says subway gluten free bread.  Not friendly bread.  Can someone clear this up for me.    Just got diagnoses 2 weeks ago and it really sucks!!!!

While the bread may be very gluten free - from a gluten-free facility - the fillings for the sandwiches likely are full of bread crumbs from the other sandwiches.  You will have this issues with other foods, like pizza .  If they use thier floury hands in the cheese, the cheese is no longer gluten-free.  Fries start out gluten-free but, when fried with breaded onion rings in the same oil, will contain pieces of onion ring batter.  

 

Read the newbie thread in the coping section to help you get started.

Get this kind of issue everywhere, the bulk containers of ingredients get contaminated from the workers touching the other sandwiches then reaching in to get the ingredients. This is also a issue in buffets, food courts, and pretty much every restaurant.  You have to check with places even with gluten-free menus to make sure they know what you have and have good procedures in place. Check with FindMeGluten, they even have a app for your phone. Look for places and CHECK REVIEWS, this is the best way to find a place.

We normally suggest eating a whole food diet from stuff you fix in your house when starting out, alot of the basics are covered in the 101 linked by kareng.

If you need help figuring things out, suggestions, etc. the community here is great for help and support. We can even point you at gluten-free options for foods, house hold items. supplements, etc. And I tend to post recipes often lol. Good luck and welcome to the forums.

Funny story when I first started I thought the salads from Subway would be safe, but I kept getting sick from them. So I can relate to this, ended up just buying bulk bags of garden salad mix and adding my own protein and seeds/nuts to it and getting a bowl of this for meals every now and then. Soups also became a bulk make and take lunch item when out.

I'm sorry but I wouldn't eat anything from Subway if it says it's gluten-free or not. It is full of chances for cross contamination. The same hand that handles every other sandwich dips into all the toppings putting crumbs in everything. That is the fad diet they're going after, not the medical diet. Be very careful when eating out. If you're just diagnosed, you need to learn to begin to research how the ingredients are sourced, how and where the food is prepped and how well the restaurant is equipped to handle your condition. A lot of times that you get sick will be because you've placed your trust in someone else to prepare your food or the word of a company. Good luck.
