Subway Tests Gluten-Free Sandwich Buns

Subway Goes Gluten-Free

Subway Gluten Free SandwichesNationwide restaurants are finally starting to notice that more and more people are paying attention to gluten in products. Case in point: Subway, which is currently testing out gluten-free options, including a sandwich bun and a dessert brownie, in about 700 of its Texas locations.

The bun, which arrives to stores premade, is a combination of corn starch, tapioca, and egg whites. Employees are even instructed to use disposable knives to prevent cross-contamination with products that contain wheat. With the change, Subway is hoping to increase its draw with the one in 133 people who have celiac disease.

The chain is also testing a diabetes-friendly menu in the Midwest, kosher menus in select US locations, and a halal foods menu in Europe. Is it a good move for large restaurant chains like Subway to be more sensitive to medical, cultural, and religious food restrictions?

I had a gluten free sandwich in Dallas. The sandwich maker was careful about cross contamination. The sandwich was wonderful! PLEASE bring these to Oklahoma soon!!

Yes!! My husband has celiac and he can only eat Subway salads - no dressing. Kind of a bummer. I hope this catches on nationwide - and fast!

Still trying to figure out how they are going to combat the cross contamination of their veggies/meat/cheese, etc. Doesn't really matter if the bread is GF when everything else is contaminated.
