There's some great news to share for the gluten-free world. The Subway restaurant chain is in the process of testing two gluten-free menu items, gluten-free sub rolls and brownies.
Subway is testing the products in the Dallas and Tyler, Texas markets. According to the company press release , to prevent cross-contamination, the gluten-free rolls and brownies will come in pre-packaged and individually wrapped packaging and sandwich artists will be trained on how to cut the rolls with a pre-wrapped knife that is only used for that particular sandwich and then discarded. Additionally, only one sandwich artist will touch gluten-free orders in order to ensure a totally safe gluten-free meal.
The adoption of gluten-free options at Subway highlights the company's long-standing tradition of providing information and options for allergy-sensitive diners. The company maintains a routinely updated website with a comprehensive chart that outlines options for people with specific food allergies and celiac disease.
