Can substitutions be made to the Breakfast Sandwich? How do the substitutions affect the nutritional value of the sandwich?

I am on a low fat diet. What are some food items that I can choose at your restaurants?

Here are some "Helpful Hints" on how to lower the fat content of some of the products sold at Tim Hortons:

  • Hold the dressing on your "Tim's Own" sandwich
  • Choose broth-based soups versus cream-based soups
  • Use 2% milk in your coffee instead of cream
  • Use 2% White Milk or 1% Chocolate Milk in place of the Cream in your Iced Cappuccino
  • Some Bagels are a low fat alternative and cream cheese is available in light varieties
  • Greek Yogurt with Mixed Berries and Almond Granola is made with fat-free Greek yogurt
  • Tim Hortons Real Fruit Smoothie with Greek Yogurt is low fat (or fat-free without the addition of yogurt)
I have Diabetes. Are there any sugar free or low sugar products at Tim Hortons that I can eat?

At this time we do not have a sugar free baked good on our menu.

We do offer sweetener for your coffee and you may also wish to consider adding a flavor shot. These flavors include: Creamy Caramel, Vanilla Bean, Mint Chocolate, Hazelnut, Raspberry, and other feature flavors - each taste great when added to coffee and are also sugar free.

The diabetic diet is not just about sugar. The Canadian Diabetes Association recommends limiting total carbohydrate, fat and sodium while increasing nutrients such as fiber, vitamins and minerals. Please feel free to view our online Nutrition Guide for a nutrition breakdown of our products.
