MILFORD, CT -- Subway Restaurants announced that it began testing a gluten-free roll and brownie in the Dallas-Fort Worth and Tyler Longview, TX, markets last month to accommodate the diets of the growing number of consumers with gluten sensitivities and Celiac Disease.

The sandwich chain said the gluten-free products used for the test come prepackaged and individually wrapped. Staff is instructed to cut the roll with a pre-wrapped knife used only once. The same employee reportedly prepares the order from beginning to end, so only one set of hands touch the sandwich, eliminating cross contamination. Additional measures are taken to ensure gluten does not contaminate other foodstuff such as meat, cheese and vegetables, according to Subway officials.

If the test is deemed a success, Milford, CT-based Subway plans to offer gluten-free products nationwide.
