What is gluten-free at Starbucks in Singapore?
Look around and you’ll likely spot a Starbucks coffee shop near you. There are so many choices on the menu. But do you know which beverage is safe? Well essentially coffee is gluten-free but when it comes flavours and blends what is safe?
What is safe
- ALL their COFFEE, ESPRESSO and TEA beverages are GLUTEN-FREE
- Syrups are gluten-free but beware of additional toppings
- Pumpkin Spice Latte is gluten-free
- Hojicha Tea Latte is gluten-free
- Bottled drinks found in the refrigerator are gluten-free
- Non-blended iced coffees
What is off limits
The following have ingredients CONTAINING GLUTEN.
- Coconut Strawberry Bliss Frappuccino
- Chocolate Chip Frappuccino
- Java Chip Frappuccino
- Dark Mocha Frappuccino
- Vampire Frappuccinos (seasonal)
We tested the Pumpkin Spice Latte and the Hojicha Latter with the Nima Sensor. All okay!
It is too hot for coffee, I really want an ice blended drink!
If you’re seriously craving a simple blended drink, use your charm and ask very very nicely they may wash out the blender to make you a drink, It is best to request this when the store is slow and they are not pressed for time. Celiacs take note, this is not a recommended option for you.
What about the other drinks on the menu?
There are a few other drinks on the that we will be researching and updating this post when we get some solid answers that they are also gluten-free. As always, ask to see ingredients if you are unsure.
Can I get something to eat?
Pretty much all of the sandwiches, croissants and cakes in the display case are strictly off limits. Even if there was a flourless cake available, the risk of cross contact is too high to make eating it worthwhile. But there is good news, many Starbucks locations in Singapore are now carrying gluten-free chips and treats in sealed bags. Look for display baskets near the checkout line.
Now drink up!
