If you’re interested in ordering off the Subway allergen menu and wondering what options are available, this article is for you.
It’s amazing to know that the biggest brands and businesses can care about their customers enough to make some changes in the way their foods are made.
After all, this is an allergy-filled world we live in, so every little bit of change helps. Interestingly, Subway has updated its menu lately to highlight food with one or more allergens in them.
So, the purpose of this article is to give you the complete list of all the items with allergens or glutens on the Subway allergen menu.
Ready? Let’s get to it.
Subway is a fast-food sandwich chain, founded by Fred DeLuca and Peter Buck in 1965. It is owned and operated by Doctor’s Associates Inc., (DAI), headquartered in Milford Connecticut, United States.
You can visit Subway for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and everything in between. With over 37,000 locations across the world, Subway is one of the most popular submarine sandwich chains.
The restaurant menu includes varieties of dishes freshly prepared with quality ingredients. Menu items such as salads, sandwiches, baked goods, and cookies are made fresh on a daily.
In addition, if you have food allergies, Subway makes its menu list easy for you to see food that contains one or more allergens. With that, you will know what to order and what not to.
What time does Subway open for business?
Subway opens for business at 8 am every day of the week. However, this may not be the case for all Subway locations.
Since the restaurant has outlets at different locations, the opening time might vary slightly by location. Even though Subway stops taking orders at 9 pm, some locations stay open until late at night.
Due to this variation in the operation hours across Subway locations, I strongly advise you to check in with your local restaurant.
The allergen menu at Subway carries food prepared with one or more allergens. So with that, you can easily spot menu items that are not safe for you.
Without much ado, below are the items on the Subway allergen menu according to the restaurant food categories.

Note: This list is for Subway restaurants in the United States. Therefore, the allergen menu at Subway in the UK or other countries might be different from the one above.
Does Subway serve breakfast in the morning?
Subway serves breakfast all day, every day. In other words, it doesn’t matter which day or time you visit as much Subway is open, you can always grab a breakfast meal.
However, the Subway breakfast menu only contains a few items. Therefore, you might not find your favorites on the menu.
Items on the Subway breakfast menu include:
- Bacon, Egg & Cheese (wrap)
- Black Forest Ham, Egg & Cheese (wrap)
- Egg & Cheese (wrap)
- Steak, Egg & Cheese (wrap)
Unlike Arby’s which has an allergen breakfast menu, you will have to ask your server to confirm your breakfast meal does not contain allergens.
Does Subway bread have eggs?
Yes, eggs are one of the major ingredients used in baking Subway bread. Therefore, if you’re allergic to eggs, you may want to stay away from bread when you visit Subway.
Subway cookies are not vegetarian because they contain dairy. Even their brownies and many of the soups available have dairy in them.
Does Subway have gluten-free sauces?
Yes, all sauces at Subway are made from gluten-containing ingredients. Nevertheless, there’s an exception which is the Sweet Onion Teriyaki Sauce. That’s the only Subway sauce that contains gluten.
Is Subway’s allergen menu in the UK the same as the one in the US?
The subway allergen menu in the UK is slightly different from the one in the US because there are some local/regional items on the individual menu.
I think Subway has taken significant steps in the right direction toward proving to consumers that they are committed to limiting the number of allergens they bring into contact with their food.
With the creation of its allergen menu, Subway is taking a step towards creating a healthier dining environment for those who suffer from allergies.
At least, with the list of food items in this article, now you know what is safe and what is not at Subway.
I must say, some of the items on Subway are not gluten-free due to cross-contact contamination during preparation. Such items are not included in this article.
Therefore, I urge you to confirm the nutrition information of every food you choose to order at Subway restaurant.
Thank you for reading.
