Diet Coke And Other Coca Cola Products

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.

    • Could this possibly be related to celiac or a gluten intolerance?
      I too have more neuro than gastro symptoms...its so weird. I hope we both find answers soon!
    • Silent Celiac or Non-digestive symptoms
      My celiac diagnosis started with me seeking medical attention for an ongoing migraine problem. This lead to MRI's that showed white spots on my brain which lead to blood work that showed a positive ANA (1:640) and a trip to the rheumatologist. The rheumatologist suggested the biopsy and a referral to a GI specialist after he felt confident that I didn't have lupus. The funny thing is that I don't have severe tummy troubles. I have some bloating occasionally and gas along with differing bowel patterns but that's about it. The most annoying and troublesome symptoms for me are migraines, fatigue and sometimes I get a little achy. My results for the prometheus test were high, blood anti-bodies were present and my biopsy revealed Grade B2 villi damage (the worst classification according to Corazza, Roberts, Ensari). Anyway I guess what I am wondering is how long after being "glutened" will I have a migraine, vitamin deficiency or other neurological symptom so that I will know that I am in trouble? I feel like if I had the tummy trouble to go with this I would know when I have eaten something that has been cross-contaminated. I just want to heal soon and not risk further intestinal damage or lymphoma. Thanks for your reply!
    • ANA and Celiac
      Does anyone know if the positive ANA(1:640) I had back in January could be connected to my celiac diagnosis two weeks ago? Does ANA change with celiac or just other AI issues? Thanks!
    • Confused
      Hello,  I'm new to the forum and new to gluten/celiac. I had some abdominal discomfort a couple weeks ago and my doctor (Kaiser) at the last second said he'd also test my blood for gluten issues. Bottom line, last Sunday night i get the results which I didn't quite understand. TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 1.06 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.91 Index <=0.90 Index Then i get an email from him saying you tested celiac positive, I'm referring you to a dietitian for a gluten free lifestyle (head exploded). After scouring the internet for days, I've read my fair share of good and bad celiac articles. Right now it seems like kaiser just wants me to go gluten-free which is fine if I have celiac disease, but I'm not sure what the numbers indicate or how bad they are, or how much potential damage has been done. Has anyone gone through a similar process? Do I need to ask for further tests?  I'm still in shock a bit I guess but really feel like I'm in the dark and reading everying on WebMD and other celiac sites gives me hope and crushes my dreams at the same time. By the way I'm 35 and male, if that matters.   Thanks
    • Teff Intolerance?
      Udi's brand also uses sodium carboxymethyl cellulose in many products, a food additive emulsifier that may cause intestinal symptoms. Emulsifiers help stabilize the bread and give it a great texture but the additive may also possibly be emulsifing the intestinal lining. Our intestinal cell walls are lined with electrically active proteins that are shaped somewhat like bottle brushes with a stiff backbone protein handle topped by electrically active bristles that act like magnets that repel each other and help keep the tube shape of the intestine open. So food additive emulsifiers may be disrupting the ability of the intestinal walls to stay open. Xanthum gum is also an emulsifier.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
