Personally, I've always had digestive issues when I consume coffee - every time. I know coffee acts as a stimulant which makes you need to go, but is it still considered a no go for gluten free diet?

Good!   coffee-machine.gif

 

 

 

Seriously, There is no reason not to have coffee on a gluten free diet.  It has never been on the forbidden foods list as it does not contain gluten.

 

Now coffee does bother some people, Celiac or not.  The acid in it can be hard on the stomach or the caffeine bothers people.  If that is the case, don't drink it.

I have heard about some CC issues with coffee, so that might be something to double check :)

Plain coffee is good.

Flavored coffees and creamers need to be checked for safe ingredients - every time.

As Karen mentioned there are other reasons folks cant drink plain coffee, gluten is not one of them.

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

Unless you order your coffee at a donut shop, there really are no cc issues with coffee.

If coffee was a problem from a gluten standpoint half the people here would be dead by now. Not an issue. Also Bailey's (I think?) makes a killer red velvet creamer. I use it for hot chocolate but I'll bet it's amazing in coffee.

I find coffee to be very acidic and I cannot drink it on an empty stomach.  Some people need that first cup of joe to get moving in the morning, but I've found that I need to have food in my stomach first.  Otherwise it tends to make me a little nausious.  For what it's worth... orange juice does the same thing to me.  Too acidic and high in sugar - I can't stomach orange juice even with food, unless I really, really dilute it (and at that point, what's the point?).

 

Coffee also freaks out my bladder - but my bladder is retarded for other reasons.

My mom is gluten intolerant just like me and she cannot have coffee. She's intolerant to it. She has been gluten free for a while and every time she tries to add coffee back, she gets sick. So I think it's possible that you might be intolerant to it. I hope not!

I read that the protein in coffee is similar in structure to the protein of gluten. Sometimes the body gets tricked and thus you get sick.

That whole idea of coffee cross reacting is junk science.......it has no validity at all.  Coffee can be an irritant for all the reasons stated above.  It has nothing to do with gluten.  :)

I wonder how these internet pseudo-doctors came up with this nonsense? 

 

What’s with all the talk about certain types of food causing “cross-reactivity?”

There is not yet reliable data about cross-reactivity. As for the alleged possibility that many gluten-free foods or drinks (such as coffee, milk, orange juice, etc.) would trigger symptoms in celiac individuals due to hidden antigens mimicking gluten or cross-reacting with anti-gluten antibodies, it must be clearly stated that this is all false information, devoid of any scientific basis, and must be rejected as untrue

My mistake. I had heard about cross-reactive foods a few times, so I thought I'd post something. Thanks for clearing that up! :)

Maybe there should be a sticky, or at least something on the newbie thread about this. It seems that lately a LOT of people are reading about this on those quack sites. If we nip it in the bud, it'll save a lot of new folks from giving up foods they don't need to.

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!
