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.
