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.

thank you..do you ever get the soup? what do you normally get, if you don't mind me asking?

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.

    • Celiac disease is not diagnosed by symptoms alone. Why?  There are over 300 of them and many, if not all, overlap with other autoimmune issues or other illnesses.  Learn more about proper testing: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I am formally diagnosed.  My hubby is not.  His mis-informed doctors told him 16 years  ago to give up gluten.  It worked, but now we do not really know if he has celiac disease or not.  He will be the first to say that I get WAY more support from family, friends and medical.   I am sorry at your doctor gave you the wrong advice.  Now, you must decide if testing is worth pursuing.  I wish you well.  
    • I am considering having my brother - who inherited Daddy's power woodworking tools - plane down my cutting boards and sand the edges enough so I can keep them. The spoons and soup stirring things though will have to be decorative. Breaks my heart. I've had good luck with Merle Norman cosmetics. They have a listing of things that are gluten-free that has helped me. My local store owner was able to get the list and knows what I can use and what I can't.
    • While you could very well be vitamin/mineral deficient, you could also have issues with your thyroid.  Autoimmune thyroid is common with .......autoimmune celiac disease.  Your doctor should order a full thyroid panel, including thyroid antibodies.   Your blood sugar should also be checked (autoimmune diabetes).  I am not saying you have these issues, but these AI issues are common with celiac disease.  In fact, you can develop or have more than one AI issue.   If I feel a very strong need to nap, I know my thyroid is off and my doctor should be notified.  A simple blood test usually verifies that an adjustment to my thyroid replacement is needed.   That said, you are in the healing stages of celiac disease.   Eat healthy and include plenty of fats to keep you satiated.  Try to avoid processed foods.  Make sure that gluten-free diet is varied and full of veggies.  Get plenty of rest.  Just listen to your body.  Soon you will feel much better.  
    • Hi and welcome Can you tell us a little about your diet? What are you eating on a typical day? You may find that some simple switches in food choices can deliver more energy and fewer spikes and crashes. This is something that receives too little attention, particularly from the medical community. It can come as a huge shock to the system and as the implications become apparent its easy to feel overwhelmed. This certainly happened to me and many others here so first do know that you're not alone. You are currently grieving believe it or not and you will be going through the stages of grief.  Second, although it may not feel it now, it WILL get better and you will adjust and adapt as you get used to the diet and start focusing on what you can still do rather than what you can't.  In the meantime, this is a good place to vent and share those feelings as they are perfectly natural and understandable and whilst not always helpful,  they are a part of you and a part of the healing process. Go easy on yourself, this is very early days. You are young, which is good news, it means you will heal sooner and you will adapt quicker and there's lots of good things on the way for you as your body gets a rest from the gluten that's been holding you back.  All the best! Matt
