Potbelly Sandwich Works

Recommended Posts

So Potbelly Sandwich just added an allergen statement on their website (www.potbelly.com), on their nutrition info page, which includes a listing of which menu items contain "wheat (gluten)". The chili supposedly has none, but I've eaten it a couple times now and both times felt like I had a gluten reaction.

Anyone know of any chili recipe that contains barley malt or something? I'm wondering now whether their statement only refers to gluten from wheat, but not gluten in general.. Also

My guess is that the chili ingredients may very well be gluten-free, but there's a huge possibility of cross contamination in a sandwich restaurant.

They likely use a mixture of spice that uses wheat to keeps it from clumping.

They really do not know any better.

You may want to contact them and tell them they need to make sure that ALL ingredients are

labeled as gluten free.

Someone with more experience likely has better insight on this.

I've wondered about them. I called about their salad dressings and they said they couldn't guarantee the ingredients but said that the chili and veg soup were gluten-free. I have been too scared to attempt it.
