Betty,

I may be wrong, but I seem to recall that they have a website, perhaps with a list of gluten free items.

(from the back of my mind and a long time ago....)

This has the ingredients for everything.

http://www.bostonmarket.com/restaurant?pag...Soups+%26+Sides

Just watch them like a hawk when they are making your meal. No matter how many times you tell them no cornbread, they love to still throw it on the tray. I once said no corn bread about 4 times, to the point that I was thinking this person is going to think I must think they're retarded. Well apparently she was, because she still put cornbread on there. When I told her I couldn't have the cornbread, that I was allergic she just took it off and then proceeded to go to the next person. Fortunately right as I was about to say something, the woman next to her grabbed my order, dumped it in the trash and started fresh.

This site is a great resource: Just don't make the mistake I did (at Panera Bread). At the end of the lengthly list of ingredients there is a list of "allergens". Look closely, example in the sides look at poultry gravy. The last list of "allergens" doesn't list wheat but if you read the INGREDIENTS. you see MODIFIED FOOD STARCH. Whoever analyzes their ingredient lists isn't knowledgeable. When the clerk is impatiently waiting for you to order and points to the allergens listed at the end,,DON'T RUSH. take the time to read the ingredients for those hidden glutens..Panera wasn't good for me!! And the gravy at Boston Market would be wonderful but for the hidden gluten.

My whole weekend, was a series of hidden gluten after another. I accidently bought a new brand of chicken broth,,,(it had wheat :o , and I didn't notice until to late. There were numerous other mistakes so I was feeling yucky by Saturday night.

I've ate there before and been fine. You do have to practically have NO CORNBREAD tatooed on your forehead, but there is plenty to eat. I usually get the white chicken, corn and maybe green beans or the apples.

I normally get the quarter chicken dark (or half depending on how hungry I am), with mashed potatoes and spinach. Although I also really like the new dill potatoes and butternut squash, so sometimes I get that instead. I love the corn but it tends to give me a tummy ache.

I've never tried their soup. Maybe next time I'll try the butternut squash soup. That crab soup sounds really good too, but again, I don't digest corn that well so I eat it sparingly.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe under the new allergen laws any Modified Food Starch that is not derived from wheat, has to have wheat listed in parenthesis next to it. So anything listed as just modified food starch without that addenedum should be derived from corn.

My understanding of the new labeling law is that it does NOT apply to resturants or their suppliers.

I get Boston Market take out all the time. We get the Chicken, mashed potatoes, mixed veggies, and other stuff for the rest of the family. I am the only one with Celiac disease. It has not bothered me when I have eaten it. Of course I stay away from the cornbread. It used to be my favorite.

Before I ever went gluten free, I ate at Boston Market once. The chicken made my lips start to swell, so I quit eating it. I know it is injected with who knows what. I'd be real careful there if you have any other allergies.

AMEN!!! Or let the first sentence and every third one after that be "AND NO CORNBREAD"

Even then, I trust their chicken (only if I'm watching) but I don't trust their sides. After they slapped the cornbread on my plate, in spite of telling them I couldn't have it, I told them I now needed a new plate with new sides. So they scrapped the sides off of the plate back into the steam table container and started preparing a new one. I realize they don't typically hire geniuses at fast food places but the typical server I've encountered really doesn't get it. And they swap spoons amoung the sides.

    • I am very interested in this too. My daughter tested negative for celiac, but has terrible primarily neurological symptoms. Because she tested positive for SIBO at the time and was having some GI symptoms, I was told it was just a Fodmap issue.  I knew better and we have been gluten free for 2 years.  Fast forward to this February. She had a SIBO recurrence that I treated at home with diet and herbal antibiotics because I couldn't get the insurance referral. She was doing great. Then stupid me brought in gluten containing chick feed for the new baby chicks we got.   Feed dust everywhere. Total mess.  Really, no GI symptoms (she was SIBO free by then)...but the neurological symptoms! my daughter couldn't walk for three days. Burning down one leg, nerve pain in the foot. Also heaviness of limbs, headache and fatigue. Better after three days. But unfortunately she had a TINY gluten exposure at that three day mark and had another severe reaction: loss of balance, loss of feeling in her back and arms, couldn't see for a few seconds, and three days of hand numbness, fatigue, concentration problems.  Well, I actually contacted Dr. Hadjivassilou by email and he confirmed that the symptoms are consistent with gluten ataxia but any testing would require a gluten challenge. Even with these exposures, antibodies would not be high enough.  His suggestion was maintain vigilance gluten free.  I just saw my daughter's GI at U of C and she really only recognizes celiac disease and neurological complications of that. But my impression is that gluten ataxia is another branch in the autoimmune side of things (with celiac and DH being the other two).   At this point, I know a diagnosis is important. But I don't know how to get there. We homeschool right now so I can give her time to heal when she is accidentally glutened, I can keep my home safe for her (ugh, that I didn't think of the chicken feed!)  But at some point, she is going to be in college, needing to take exams, and totally incapacitated because of an exposure.  And doctors state side that are worth seeing?  Who is looking at gluten ataxia in the US?
    • Caro..............monitoring only the TSH to gauge thyroid function is what endo's do who don' t do a good job of managing thyroid disease.  They should do the full panel and check the actual thyroid hormone numbers.........T3 and T4. The importance of the TSH comes second to hormone levels. In order to track how severely the thyroid is under attack, you need to track antibody levels.......not the TSH. I did not stay with endocrinologists because I found they did not do a very good job and found much greater help and results with a functional medicine MD.  You should not have a goiter if your thyroid is functioning well and your TSH is "normal".  Maybe they should do a full panel? Going gluten free can have a profound affect for the better on thyroid function and that is something that is becoming more and more accepted today.  Ask most people with Celiac and thyroid disease and they will tell you that. My thyroid never functioned well or was under control under after I discovered I had Celiac and went gluten free.  It was the only way I got my antibody numbers back down close to normal and they were around 1200 when it was diagnosed with Celiac.  I was diagnosed with Hashi's long before the Celiac diagnosis.  I am not sure Vitamin D has anything to do with thyroid antibodies but who knows?  Maybe it does have an affect for the better. It is really hard to get Vitmain D levels up, depending on where you live. Mine are going up, slowly, even after 12 years gluten-free but I live in the Northeast in the US and we don't have sun levels like they do in the South.  I take 5,000 IU daily and that is a safe level to take, believe it or not.  I get no sun on my job so the large dose it is! Having Celiac Disease should not stop you from being able to travel, especially S. America. I travel, although I do agree that some countries might be very difficult to be gluten free in. You can be a foodie and travel with Celiac so no worries on that front. You may not be able to sample from someone else's plate, unless they are eating gluten-free too but I have had awesome experiences with food when traveling so you can too!
    • I don't know what you drank or where.... so here are a few thoughts. - sure, a dive bar might have dirty glasses and serve a cocktail in a beer glass?  But a nice reminder place, with a dishwasher, should be fine.  If it's a sketchy place, Stick to wine, then it's served in wine glasses that aren't used for beer or bottled ciders in the bottle.   - ciders on tap might, just a slight chance, have an issue.  Because of beer on tap, mixed up lines, etc. - you may have a problem with alcohol - you may have issues with The  high sugar content of the drink.  I know I have similar issues if I drink serveral ciders of extra sugary brands - are you positive it was a gluten-free drink?  Not this " redds Apple" pretending to be a cider - it's beer with apple flavor.  Or one of those " gluten removed " beers?  
    • Hi Stephanie, I'm also from the UK, I've found this site more helpful than anything we have!  As already mentioned above, in my experience it could depend on what and where you were drinking. Gluten free food and drink isn't always (not usually) 100% gluten free as you may know, maybe you have become more sensitive to even a trace of gluten that is probably in gluten free food/drink. Is it possible you have a problem with corn, particularly high fructose corn syrup that is in a lot of alcoholic drinks? This was a big problem for me and the only alcoholic drinks I can tolerate are William Chase vodka and gin. I contacted the company last year and all their drinks are 100% gluten and corn free, made the old fashioned way with no additives, so maybe try their products if you like the occasional drink and see how you get on. If you drink out, not many pubs sell their products but I know Wetherspoons do and smaller wine bars may too. l was never a spirit drinker but I must say their products are absolutely lovely! Very easy on a compromised gut too considering it's alcohol. I second the suggestion on seeing a natural health practitioner. I've recently started seeing a medical herbalist, as I've got nowhere with my now many food intolerances since going gluten free last year and I've noticed a difference in my health already. 
    • Sorry for the very late reply and thanks for the replies, I didn't get a notification of any. In case anyone else comes across this and has been wondering the same as I was, I did try a vegetable broth and I did react to it in the same way as if I'd eaten the vegetables.  As for the candida, I've been using coconut oil and am seeing a medical herbalist for this and leaky gut. It's only been a few weeks but I've noticed an improvement all round.
