Diet Coke And Other Coca Cola Products
0

14 posts in this topic

I've read and seen reports saying Diet Coke and other Coca Cola products are gluten-free but anothers are saying it has gluten in it because of the Caramel Color in it. I don't drink pop a lot but I'd like to know for future reference. I was diagnosed with Celiac 2 and 1/2 weeks ago!

The caramal color thing is a myth that won't go away. No need to worry about them.

Most (if not all) caramel color in this country is derived from corn.

My daughter seems to react to colour 150 so I stay away from anything that looks like it might contain it.  Haven't looked at coke because I won't let her have caffeinated drinks yet at 9 so it's still a couple of years away from being explored.  I don't drink it myself so have never felt the need to look more into it, but she can't have Sars.  She's sensitive to a few colours and preservatives.  I can't have anything with MSG because it brings on asthma as well so she hasn't had it because it isn't something that makes an appearance in our home.

EWWWWW MSG!  My mother gets migraines from it... I used to get a lot of headaches when I was younger, so my mother suggested I cut out MSG, been a whole new person (when it comes to headaches) since!

 

As for sodas, I haven't come across one with gluten, and I was very careful at first with sodas, only drank sprite and things like that...(Or sodas with the caramel coloring that clearly stated gluten free... I fell in love with Blue Sky brand drinks) but now I drink diet coke and regular pepsi just fine... And I'm pretty sensitive.  Like someone else said, most color coloring here is corn based.  Actually, our sodas are corn based period... hence the reason why sodas here taste different from the rest of the world that makes their sodas sugar based.

If you can find Mexican Coke, that's sugar-sweetened, no corn syrup.  We have a little produce store that carries odd international things and the Mexican Coke is one of our prime reasons for going there!

We're in Australia so it's probably different here anyway.

    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Sorry  To give you more info I had the endoscopy because I was diagnosed last year with Barretts Esophagus and gastritis. I've been on medication since but still had issues so they went back in to check how everything was going and to make sure the Barretts hadn't turned into anything nasty. I had a celiac blood test in 2014 ( negative) and the endoscopy in 2015 didn't show lymphocytes in the duodenum well that's if he biopsied that. I also had a colonoscopy with this years endo and all of that came back fine - I thought if I was celiac that would be affected also? As far as I know the biopsy only showed lymphocytes (white blood cells?) in the duodenum no damage to the villi but he used many big words that I didn't understand so he could have said more. With the blood test all I know is that I had a blood test for Celiac - I didn't know there were different tests for it. I'm a complete newbie with all this stuff so I just don't get what questions to ask him.  I'm so impatient I just want to know. I have a big family, a husband that is FIFO and I'm a stresser. 
    • Help interpreting biopsy results after gluten-free for 7 months
      Hi there, Just got my follow up biopsy results after being dx with celiac 7 months ago (dx with blood test + biopsy). Could anyone help interpret these new results as the doc wasn't much help... Basically he said good news is it looks like gut has healed up due to gluten-free diet. Bad news is that he has no explanation as to why I still have all of my symptoms.  Any help interpreting the attached results would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Right, usually they do an endoscopy after a positive blood antibody test.  The biopsy confirms the antibody results.  Doing them in the reverse order doesn't hurt anything though.  Sometimes people "fail" the antibody tests but still have gut damage.  Not everybody makes the same antibodies or in the same quantities.  Anyway, you should make sure they are doing the complete celiac antibody panel, not just a ttg test. And don't worry if the celiac tests are positive for gliaden antibodies.  Going gluten-free is an adjustment to your diet. Quite a few people around here have managed to adjust successfully.  It takes some effort, but anything worthwhile does they say.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
