Has anyone here eaten the chili from Tim Horton's since going gluten free? Or the potato bacon soup etc?

I know these are gluten free ingredient wise. I understand for some things cross contamination could be a worry but...wouldn't soups be in a closed container and then thrown in that closed pot they keep it in to warm it up? Should their soups and chili be pretty much safe?

I'm going home next week and absolutely want to have my favorite chili lol NOT if i'm gonna get sick though.

I have a wheat allery and had a Timmies coffee and had a severe reaction. I guess the flour is in the air and settles on the cups and every thing else. I would not risk it again.

What about a Shoppers? One of those in the mall? Some have pre-packaged fruit cup thingy's, and all that which are gluten free. However, there is also the option of SOME and not all, but SOME Chinese food take-aways have pure rice noodles, or sauteed vegetables which are gluten-free.

New York Fries does have gluten-free chips, but the seasoning counter does have gluten present, so it depends on where the counter is and where you're getting the chips from.

I THINK it's a Lawton's Drugs in the mall. Like Shoppers but not Shoppers. New York Fries I thought was a good one but then i've heard of people being glutened somehow and figured some part of the buns for the hot dogs got into the oil? i dunno...very nervous. I personally don't even need seasoning on those so I was gonna avoid it but *sighs* There IS a asian place i think tho. Hopefully some plain steamed rice or rice noodles yeah *sighs* So irritating!

A comment from the Peanut Gallery:

There are many posts on this board where somebody insists that they were glutened at such-and-such a place or by such-and-such a product. Many of these posts are by folks newly diagnosed.

Often, these people are in the early stages of healing, and during this phase, the damaged intestine may react to anything. In my early recovery, I had some violent reactions after eating plain boiled white rice. My body was just not always ready for food, gluten-free or not.

So, take these with a grain of salt. Even as a long-term veteran of the diet, when I have an issue (which is very rare), it can be difficult to be certain where the cc came from.

Yeah I wondered about that too...seems i get a tummy ache here and there so maybe i should stay away from it for now...i dunno...maybe i'll wait a while and look at it as...maybe next time i visit i'll try it. I've only been gluten free. Like really putting in the effort to be completely since I found out may 10th. So....i guess i'll bring ziplock baggies of stuff in my bookbag i carry around.

My husband really wants Tim Horton's coffee so i suggested maybe he bring a thermos and get them to fill it to lessen the risk of cups with possible flour particles from the donuts and bagels in them etc. So some things may be more do-able than others.

I was never impressed with Tim's coffee--perhaps I am not really Canadian: my mother was from Minnesota. But I do get Starbucks in my travel mug from the one near my business several times a week. Never had a problem.

Hehehe hey we're all different people with different tastes *shrug* I like both Starbucks and Timmy's. Since living down here all we can get are Starbucks...we miss the fraps though. SO FAR...my husband gets iced coffee during the summer and is fine. We're doing okay without the fraps..hopefully we're not getting glutened by the coffee somehow but I doubt it as ...well..it's just coffee? lol

I eat New York Fries all the time at the mall and have never been glutened. Also Booster Juice (just no Boosters, at least one of them has gluten) and Qoola frozen yogurt.

There's a Lawton's in ours too...are you talking about the Avalon Mall?

The New York Fries at the Avalon Mall is good, because they keep their spices separate. Also you can tell them you have an "allergy to some things in the spices", so they'll be cautious.

Second Cup might have gluten-free baked goods.

    • Your first post stated that it took you 7 days of continuously eating gluten to get symptoms. So maybe it's not related to gluten at the hospital at all? Maybe you picked up an illness from the hospital? if I hadn't read your first post I'd say that the hospital food probably glutened you. Imho they don't do a great job at following dietary restrictions. Which may have still happened, and your symptoms kicked in faster this time. fyi any gluten exposure, even a crumb, kicks in the autoimmune response for celiac.
    • Hospitals and the ER....will normally ignore your dietary requirements with celiac. If they gave you so called gluten-free food...it had gluten. You have to have your own brought in or ask for plain whole foods. I wear medical dog tags with emergency contact info, allergies, blood type, and medical info on them. And my emergency contacts have been told where I keep emergency room stashes...IE Julian Protein Bar, MRM meal shakes to take up there if I get stuck in the hospital.
    • Hello- I was DX Celiac 2 years ago.  Last week I had a terrible accident, broke ankle and had to be taken to emergency. I was pumped full of drugs mostly Versed and Fentanal  via IV. After the usual couple days of constipation following these sort of drugs I began having GLUTENED intestinal issues.  I've had non stop bathroom runs for 2 days now and everything about it feels like I've been seriously glutened.  I've done some research but found no conclusive answers.  Did any of those things stir up my Celiac disease and cause me to have an autoimmune response? Has anyone had any similar experiences they can share with me?  This is my first post.  Thank you
    • All the issues you said came up after going gluten-free. Three points
      1. Are you sure you eating gluten free? If you eat out good chance your getting CCed, and is everything your eating really gluten free? There are many that are iffy on the market now days and CC can get in on some of the oddest aspects like shampoo, make up, lotion, medication, sauces, spices. etc.
      2. Sounds like your have deficiency issues, what are you eating? Your supposed to eat a varied diet when gluten free, most gluten free processed foods are not enriched...most gluten food is essentially sprayed with vitamins. SO you need to eat a varied diet eating leafy greens meats, eggs, etc. I myself have other limitations and have to supplement what I would get from these. ALSO celiac makes it where you do not absorb all the nutrients from your food I have 2 suggestion of stuff you NEED to take. Liquid health Stress & Energy, Liquid Health Nurological Support, and Doctors Best Magnesium.... these will help with stress, muscle aches, and energy issues. NOW you might need some other things like D and a few others.
      3. Sugars can cause all kinds of issues I know the issues with the craving.....I can not avoid them myself. I use some sweeteners like erythrol, stevia, monk fruit, etc to avoid the real sugar and the chemical BS ones. I make grain free, dairy free, gluten free baked goods, nut butters and snacks and even make a living off of selling them......I have a focus on making everything super moist as I know that is a huge craving for those of us with this.  Try moving to a healthier option if you can spiking your insulin and glucose levels is going to raise all kinds of havoc and the excess sugars can lead to candida or sibo in your intestines.

      Oh and yeah if you think death is bad we had a member have to get a emergency colonstomy. They ignored it and ate gluten and kept on doing it.....yeah having to poop in a bag sounds worse then death or cancer to me....and those are your other options.
    • Your daughter is only 7 years old.    I believe with a strict gluten-free diet, and some time, she will grow. My daughter was diagnosed at age 10.   When she was younger, she was always tall for her age.   She was in the 90% percentile as a toddler.   When she was finally diagnosed at age 10, we noticed that she did not grow at all for a little over a year, and she was at 25% percentile, and shorter than all her girl friends.   (She used to be one of the taller kids in the class) She is 14 years old now, still growing, and she is catching up with her friends, (no longer the shortest).   She is 5' 3'' right now.   She does not have her period yet, so we hope she will grow another few inches.   If she can be 5' 6", that would be a very good height for a girl. I think your daughter will be fine.  With a strict gluten-free diet, of course.
