I cannot tell you how many times I have been out with others and when they want to stop at Subway to get a sandwich. During the most recent event, I gave up and ordered a salad. Fortunately, my sensitivity is not that great where I have to watch for cross-contamination, but others most definitely do.
Well, per Celiac.com, Subway is testing out a gluten-free menu including gluten-free rolls and brownies. They are pre-wrapped to avoid cross-contamination and the single preparer uses a pre-wrapped knife to cut your sandwich.
The gluten-free menu is being tested in Dallas and Tyler Texas and started on January 10, 2011.
Because those with gluten a intolerance or sensitivity often have other food intolerances I thought you may be interested in reviewing Subway’s U.S. Allergy Information or Subway’s Canada Allergy Information.
Gluten-free menus are popping up everywhere, making our life easier and our health safer. I applaud all who are participating. With Subway having 33,911 restaurants in 95 countries, this could be a huge win for the gluten-free community!
Keep asking for gluten-free menus because they are listening!

UPDATE January 13, 2011: Per CNN’s article, “Subway Bites Into Gluten-free Market“, the buns are made up of egg whites, cornstarch and tapioca starch. The brownies are made up of potato starch, cocoa and sugar. There are 700 Subways in the Dallas and East Texas areas participating in this new endeavor.
