I hope this is the right place for this. tim hortons is sort of a restaurant.

Anyway, does anyone know if tim horton's yogurt and berries are gluten free?

It would be something i could get when i'm out and craving fast food. If it's gluten free that is.

Okay, I just went to the Tim Horton's website and this is what they have to say:

If I have an allergy, can I eat any Tim Hortons products?

If you have a food allergy, please be aware that Tim Hortons products may contain, or have come into contact with, peanuts, nuts or other possible allergens. Tim Hortons is a bakery environment, serving baked goods that are not in sealed packages. Therefore, we unfortunately cannot guarantee a 100% allergy-free environment.

If you would like more information about ingredients or allergies, please call our customer assistance line at 1-888-601-1616 (Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time).

I would like a copy of the Nutrition Guide sent to me.

Our website gives you the option to print off a copy of our Nutrition Guide (Canada or U.S.) right away. Hard copies of our nutrition guides are not currently available in our stores.

That's it. I researched this almost 2 years ago and at that time their stated allergen policy was that if you had an intolerance or an allergy they actually said "please do not eat at any of our locations".

Okay so that being said, you'll have to download the PDF file online or contact them to find out if the yogurt is originally manufactured gluten free.

mtdawber-just remember that NO FOOD at any restaurant or from any manufacturer that is not cooked, processed, baked or otherwise made in a strictly gluten free environment, is gluten free-it is NOT. Only foods made in those specific environments can be called gluten free. Lots of restaurants and manufacturers like to say that their products are gluten free but they are made alongside, in the same area as and in most cases with the same equipment that is used for making gluten containing foods. This food is "gluten not intentionally added" because there is always the chance of cross contamination. They don't actually put gluten containing ingredients into the products, but they may end up in them unintentionally. So remember that when you are inquiring about mainstream products or you are planning on eating out. You will always take the risk of cross contamination.

That being said as well, you will find that many or most of the celiac disease and DH sufferers on this web-site dine out and eat mainstream "gluten not intentionally added products" and don't mind the risk involved. :rolleyes:

Have fun with the fruit and berries :lol:

Hi there, thanks for the information. It makes sense. I'm not sure I could give up my Tim Horton's.... if I don't feel better soon, I might have to! Today, I'm off to buy a new toaster that the rest of my family will not be allowed to use... :ph34r:

Don't forget a cutting board, use your own butter and any other food item that your family may feel like putting their own cutlery into after it's touched a piece of bread or other non gluten-free item (ex. jam, peanut butter, pickles, mayo, cheese etc....) I used to mark all my food but we found it just easier for me to take a door pocket in the fridge and use it exclusively for my stuff. It was easier for the kids to learn that they were not to touch anything that was in that pocket. Beware of cross contamination from dish cloths and tea towels that have been used to wipe crumbs from tables or counters. Also, check to make sure any soaps, shampoos, conditioners, body washes, makeup or other beauty products that you use do not contain gluten. I see you are very new to this so I'm not sure what kind of info you got at the beginning. If you're like me, you'd never heard of celiac disease or DH before you were diagnosed and the doctor told you to "avoid gluten" and promptly left without explaining how serious or how EXACTLY you are to go about avoiding it. So sorry if these are things you already know, I just want to make sure that you've got some info to go on before you accidently glutenize yourself because you didn't know.

By the way...did you come up with an answer for the yogurt question?

Okay just for everyone's information I just called Tim Hortons and they said that the yogurt and berries is gluten free HOWEVER,she also said the product is shipped in bulk to each individual store where they open it and portion it out themselves into each individual container. SOOOOOOOOOO I would have to say that if you eat this product you take a VERY GOOD chance that it will be cross contaminated!! This is why Tim Hortons discourages people with allergies or intolerances from eating there.

What about McDonald's fruit and berries? I wonder if it's gluten not intentionally added and if it comes in bulk to each individual store or if it comes already preportioned?? Perhaps that could be a good substitute?

The McDonalds one has granola on top. I don't know if the granola comes in a separate package.

In Canada the granola is on top in a seperate, sealed container.

It would be something i could get when i'm out and craving fast food. If it's gluten free that is.

I was in Canada over the holiday (I'm from Kitchener originally) and ended up in a car full of starving folks who decided to go through Tim's for lunch. My work around: ordering a "sandwich" minus the bread, and the sauces--and I asked for the cheese, etc. to still be individually wrapped, etc. so I could at least limit CC. I didn't realise the turkey wasn't real turkey (duh) but lunch meat so ended up just eating the cheese (don't know if it was gluten-free or not) and lettuce.

Of course--the drive-through person thought I was nuts, or joking with them. Ended up going up to the pick up counter and explaining the situation to them. They were very accommodating. However--I'd probably avoid eating a sandwichless sandwich again.

Coffee remains gluten-free!

I talked to Tim Hortons. All drinks, including hot chocolate, all yogurt, chili and turkey and wild rice soups are gluten-free. Now I have had the chili and the soup it is excellent and I did not get poisoned. However, one has to be aware that the building is full of gluten so you could get some in it by accident.

    • Hi!  Um, please forgive my quirky sense of humor..... Celiac Disease is genetic... All first degree relatives of people diagnosed with Celiac Disease should be tested for the disease, too.  Gall bladder problems are often associated with Celiac Disease.  Your diagnosis might save your whole family from further medical problems as they age and the disease progresses... You need to set a good example if relatives are similarly diagnosed.... and then everybody will have to eat gluten free at family gatherings....  
    • That's what I thought!  My father has gluten sensitivity and I almost regret telling the doctor that because I feel that made her jump to conclusions because of that.  He never had the biopsy either.  I feel like doctors think it's just easier to say it's celiac when they show a gluten sensitivity to avoid additional testing, even if that diagnosis doesn't make any sense at all.  My doctor didn't even offer the biopsy, and said the blood work was enough.  Should I seek a third opinion?  I mean, I've been gluten free for 9 months...
    • It will prolong your life....celiac is a autoimmune disease that  causes your own immune system to attack you. The longer your eating gluten the worse it gets, I mean all kinds of other autoimmune disease, food allergies, food intolances. One day you could lose the ablity to eat carbs, or sugars, or become randomly allergic to tomatoes or corn all cause you decided not to be on road to healing I am not kidding here. I am allergic to corn, can not process meats, have another autoimmune disease that makes it so I can not eat dairy or CARBS/SUGARS.   I wish I could go back in time and go on a gluten-free diet a decade ago. Worse that could happen you could develop cancer or other complications and yes we have had this happen to a member before on our forums. Think of it like this your just changing brand here I will give you some links to some gluten-free foods, and how to order them, You can even order alot of them online this should help simplify it for you. I suggest thrive, amazon, or one of hte other links from there, Many you can order from the manufacture. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/  
    • I know this is not funny for you guys, but I had to laugh about how all of those family members simply ignored your well meant advice. That is definitely head in the sand syndrome. I have tried for a long time to find the connection between autoimmune diseases and my health. With this celiac diagnosis I have finally found it. All of the puzzle pieces are in place for sure and it is going to be my mission to do the best possible in order to get healthy again.   What a sneaky disease this is and to think that none of my family members never were diagnosed, despite the fact that both have been in doctor's care all of their lives. It really goes to show that most medical doctors simply seem to completely disconnect nutrition with health.   I am scared to give that advice to people when I see them suffering from specific diseases. But there are people that I would like to help if I can. Scared to make those suggestions, because so many times negative reactions follow and all I meant to do was to help that person.
    • There are definitely things you can do to make it easier on yourself. But all of my ideas seem to cost money and involve cooking. But I'll give it a shot anyway in case you haven't already thought of it. I would buy a small chest freezer and put gluten-free foods in it. Canyon bakehouse sells their fantastic bread and bagels right on their website. You can just buy a case of it. Then if you ever get in the mood for a sandwich or bagel the bread's right there frozen in your chest freezer. If you get invited to somebody's house for dinner find out what their cooking and make your own similar version of it. So for Easter I would make ham, potatoes and broccoli and bring that with me. So when everybody else is eating a fantastic Easter dinner I'm also eating a fantastic Easter dinner. I have other food issues and before celiac I was invited to a friend's wedding. I wasn't going to be able to eat the food they were serving so I made similar food at home. They were serving lamb, ham, vegetables, potatoes. So I brought ham, corn and potatoes with me and heated it up when everybody was going to the buffet to get their food. So when everybody else was pigging out on this great wedding dinner I was also pigging out on a great dinner. And nobody would have noticed if they didn't try. Sometimes you just get in the mood to have a frozen dinner and just don't feel like cooking something. There's two ways you can go about this. I happen to be addicted to Udi's chicken Florentine and think that their broccoli kale lasagna is very good as well. So I'd stock up on that in that chest freezer. glutenfreemall.com has tons of stuff. On Sunday you can make a weeks worth of food and freeze a lot of it in individual portions. After a few weeks you will have several different meals in the chest freezer that you made at home. You can eat those on weeknights when you're too busy to cook. In my family Friday night was always eat out fast food night. McDonald's, Burger King, pizza, fried chicken. So for pizza my plan is to purchase Etalia New York style pizza crusts. Purchase some Escalon six in one crushed tomatoes and freeze in individual portions. Buy some Grande 50/50 mozzarella cheese and freeze in individual portions as well. If on Friday night if I am in the mood for pizza I'll just grab a crust, a portion of sauce and a portion of cheese from the chest freezer and make myself pizza in under 15 minutes. When I get invited to a barbecue I bring loaded potato skins or batter fried chicken wings. Everybody loves them as do I. I by Pamela's gluten-free flour from Amazon six at a time. So I always have some available. For the record, at the moment I am an extremely strict diet and cannot do any of the above. But will go back to that method in a few months.
