Errr... I know this is a really dumb question, but my work has a Subway. And I love Subway. But I was wondering, has anyone attempted a salad? I don't think it would be a good idea, because I know they don't change gloves or anything, and I have been poisoned by tuna appearing in my sandwiches before, so I am already wary of cc there anyway...

Input?

I would think that it's not a good idea to eat there. They touch bread and then touch all of the toppings. These are the same toppings that would be in your salad.

Could you bring a salad from home in a container? I like to bring lettuce and tomato in a container and bring some leftover taco meat and eat it with corn chips. That makes for a great lunch.

Back in the day I worked at Subway (pre gluten-free) and nothing than was considered safe in eating gluten free. Maybe things have changed, but nothing was kept seperate, and CC was an issue. I would not try it. The workers wear gloves, but they handle all the bread and toppings and meat / cheese all with the same gloves.

Last time I got a salad at Subway there were breadcrumbs mixed in with the shredded cheese. Never again.

Even if they change gloves, they drag the bread in front of all the veggies/toppings. Any crumbs can fall into the veggies your salad is made from. I watched how they made my kids subs and I made a note to never eat at Subway.

I worked at Subway back in High School and I know that there were always bread crumbs in the veggies, meat and cheese. It's not really something we could control, it just happens when you're dealing with a lot of bread, having to bake and cut it. I would never eat at Subway, knowing this, but gosh, do I sure crave it all the time :(

I eat a salad at Subway at least once a week, and I never had any problems. I guess I was lucky! Now that I think about it though, CC could really be a problem.

SO. MUCH. BREAD. The appeal of a quick Subway salad is great, however, all of the bread there is too scary for me.

NEW G.FREE MENU incl. BREAD at SUBWAY

I am so happy! Heard about subway's in DFW area having new gluten free bread so ran into our local Subway and asked and she said yes and started changing her gloves. I said, Thanks I'll be back. Came back and ordered some gluten-free sanwiches and some not gluten-free. Both people working there changed their gloves and got new knives in between. Used special pre-packaged bread, put on special butcher block paper, double checked things I asked for were on the G.Free menu, they even looked at each other like....New Gloves....Check....New Knife...Check....as if they were saying this is what we practiced for now lets put it into play...they even wrapped them up and put the G.Free and the non G.Free in seperate bags to go. I made special attention to see if any bread crumbs had fallen into the bins...and no evidence of any...I was really impressed with their commitment to eliminate cross contamination.....they even had G.Free Packaged brownies. Both gluten-free Bread and Brownies were DELICIOUS! I think they may be just testing it....and so hopefully all you gluten-free people will go try it out so that they will keep the G.Free menu and bread. Best gluten-free bread and brownie I ever had. One negative...gluten-free bread is in shape of Kaizer roll so don't wast your time figuring out what size you want. :-)

I'm dying to try a sandwich there, but am reluctant to go at lunch when there's a line and it's usually crowded. I'm very comfortable being a Celiac for over 4 years, but still think I might feel a little too much on display doing that.

I have tried the $2 gluten-free brownies though. Very tasty. Crispy on the outside and fudgy on the inside. They are individually wrapped of course, in a display box by the cashier.

best regards, lm

even with them changing gloves I would still worry about the gluten gloves that touched the food items - lettuce, meat, tomatoes - first. Seems that they could leave crumbs behind.

I've eaten the salads twice with no issues. I asked them to change gloves, and they did with no problems. I did look on-line to check out which dressings were gluten-free. May be I was just lucky?

I got hubby a salad from Subway and had them add meat to it. They put on new gloves and put down foil to make up the salad for me. Hubby did not react.

I do have to say that he is not very sensitive. He accidentally ate the regular bread at Biaggi's, and nothing happened.

    • So Dr called. Labs normal. See ya I. 3 years. 
    • I had horrific leg pains when celiac first reared its ugly head in my childhood. My Mom used to try warm compresses but I don''t remember them helping. Don't know if they were from vitamin deficiencies or not but I had them off and on throughout childhood. I would get cramps in adulthood almost anywhere. My back was the worst. The cramping did resolve gluten free. Don't know if that will be the case for your daughter though. One last thought I know many places are having a very warm summer. Dehydration can also cause muscle cramps so if your dealing with a lot of heat make sure she is well hydrated. I hope she is feeling much better soon. Do get a full panel done on yourself and all first degree relatives. Testing is advised even if folks don't seem to have symptoms.
    • I like Bakery on Mains granolas, the ones that are oat free. They have a fair amount of protein as they have nuts in them.  I also have Cream of Buckwheat if I want a hot cereal or if my tummy is off. It's has a good amount of protein and is really easy to digest.  I definately don't eat the cereals like Cheerios etc that have regular oats that are mechanically sorted. They may be fine but my reactions to even small amounts of CC is too severe to risk it.
    • Leg pain can be a symptoms of celiac or NCGS. Cause can also be from a deficiency brought on from different causes including celiac. How are her magnesium levels? And B-Vitamin Levels? Bit of a joke, doctors call their occupation a "Practice" seems they need more practice.
    • I keep my eggy flat bread in the freezer for quick fixes of eggs normally. But I do sometimes make a porridge out of almond and coconut meal, Konjac flour can be used to thicken stuff into a nice porridge wand works great with almond butter. and I sometimes make a oatmeal knock off using Miracle rice, almond milk, and a bit of coconut flour. I can not eat carbs/grains so my cereals are nut based lol. When out of the house I find MRM meal replacement powder turns into a goopy chocolatey slop of indulgence with a very acquired texture by pouring in hot coffee and topping with a sugar substitute (Flax Meal in it thickens up alot)  >.>
