Kahlua & Godiva Chocolate Liqueur
0

9 posts in this topic

After having a Father's Day BBQ and thinking I had done all the right things to ensure I had a gluten-free meal, today I am miserable with hives and terrible itching, not to mention the stomach issues...I did drink a chocolate martini with Godiva and Kahlua in it. I just assumed they were gluten-free and safe. Does anyone know their status? Thanks so much!

I know the kahlua is, don't know about the Godiva.

I get an upset stomach these days from martinis, even if they're made with potato vodka. On the other hand, rum and tequila doesn't upset my stomach at all. So, for me, it's not even a gluten thing with the vodka. Maybe it's the same for you. I used to handle it fine, and expect I will again in the future once I'm doing better.

Did you use bbq sauce? What kind? Are you sure the grill was clean of gluten? What about salad dressing?

I don't know whether or not the Godiva is gluten-free, but I know some of their candies are not, so you may want to check with them on that.

Thanks for the info....I'm much better today. The BBQ sauce I used was Sweet Baby Ray's and I made the salad dressing. The grill may have been the culprit. Also, a friend brought ribs. I inquired as to what he had marinated them in and he assured me nothing had gluten in it. I probably should have stuck with what I had prepared myself. I'll know better next time!

Hi, I'm not a big drinker but I do love a chocolate martini! :P I have never had any reaction to stoli vokka and godiva chocolate liquer so I assume they are fine. I had one recently that they also added a mint liquer and cream. It was wonderful...tasted like mint chocolate ice cream. yummm!!! :lol:

Most people don't realize soy and teriyaki have gluten, so the ribs could have been it. Hope you're feeling better.

When I wrote to Godiva in the beginning of my diagnosis I was told to consider all their stuff to have gluten in it. They wouldnt guarantee any of their candies gluten free. Are they? Does someone know anything different? I miss some of my truffles..... :(

I also remember hearing that Godiva liquer has gluten in it. My friend makes an egg nog version with the white chocolate variety, and I've always avoided it even though it sounds soooo good!

Godiva Chocolates are not gluten free. :( They are not able to verify or confirm, so therefore, do not eat it.

Gluten free chocolates are: Cadbury (always check ingredients), Green and Black's organic is made in a gluten free facility and wheat free facility. All versions should be ok, and also Nestle. Those are confirmed. i am still doing research ....

    • Anxiously waiting
      Hi all. Ive just had my blood test results which showed a high level for coeliacs,originally i went to doctor coz my bowel movements had changed and haven't been normal for over a month and i am very tired,the tiredness i assumed was low iron and my tummy/bowel issues well i thought IBS Maybe or a bug as ive not really had issues before,anyway she has put me on a wait list to have a endoscopy done. Im so so confused as i didn't expect i may be coeliac,my symptoms come and go so on a day im good i think sweet my issues are resolved but then they come back so they are not consistent which makes me wonder if it is coeliac or not,but my tiredness,headaches,shortness of breath,tummy gurgling,different bowel movements,feeling nauseous are all symptoms that come at different times. The test i had was for gliadin IgG which was 20 but should be 7 or lower, i guess im just anxious to wait who knows how long for the endoscopy coz i would like to try and cut out gluten but the dr said not to till the procedure is done. P.s im in australia so not sure if things are different here.
    • Celiac Night Vision
      Scotomas returned for the 7th year on the 24th February despite liver pâté and have varied since with 3 brief gaps. I have always had migraine, latterly occurring more than once a month, usually of basilar or retinal type with aura (but no headache) lasting less than 5 minutes. A recent bout looked like a TIA and led to a CT scan which revealed clear major vessels but old cerebellar infarcts, so maybe migraine accounts for poor memory too. The scotomas are very different from migraine eye symptoms - stationary, irregular in shape and lasting hours. I think food is excluded as the cause but seasonality, gaps, variation with wind direction and rain mean that pollen is still a possibility. Scott Adams did a marvellous thing founding this site so celiacs could enlighten each other. Please post if you have anything like these scotomas!
    • healthy bread recipe?
      Eat what you eat at lunch or dinner.  I am happy with a fried hamburger patty, fish, or chicken (I know it needs to be fresh or frozen for the histamine diet).  Yes, I eat veggies for breakfast!   Wanted to add that I was glutened in July (GI ordered follow-up antibodies testing and it was high)  and it took me 3 months to recover.  Picked up a histamine intolerance and became lactose intolerant again.  Luckily, when I healed, the histamine thing went away (or  Diminished ) and the lactose intolerance resolved.    I was getting hives, rashes and itching (not DH), vomiting, etc.  So, her intolerances may be just temorary!  
    • Could this be celiac or is it really just IBS?
      Are you sure you had the complete celiac panel?  Here are the tests:   -Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG -Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG -EMA IgA  -total serum IgA and IgG (control test)     -endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken   VERY IMPORTANT:  Keep eating gluten daily until ALL testing is complete or the tests can be inaccurate.     (Source: NVSMOM -- 😊)   Here is more information from a reputable site (and not just info from a crazy cyclist on the Internet!):   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/   IBS, in my opinion, means "I Be Stumped!"  It is just a cop out!  So is the "stressed" thing.     I also had my GB out too.   It was a non-functioning (0% per HIDA scan), no stones, and rotting.     You seem to have many celiac disease symptoms.  Verify (obtain copies of your lab tests) to see if you got the complete panel. You might just have had the TTG IGA and TTG IGG tests.  Good for screening but it does not catch all celiacs.  My TTG tests are always negative even on follow-up testing.  The DGP test catches a positive for me.  My biopsies revealed moderate to severe damage.  If my celiac-savvy GI did not order the complete panel, my celiac disease diagnosis would never have been caught.   if celiac disease is really ruled out, research mast cell disorders.  The flushing and GI upset sound familiar!  You can have more than one thing going on!  But I would put my money on celiac disease!            
    • tightness in throat after eating gluten?
      I've noticed that if I accidentally eat gluten, for the next few days I have this tightness in my throat. It feels like my throat is closing. It's not constant, but comes and goes throughout the next 1-3 days. My hands have also been itchy. Is this a normal symptom for celiac or gluten intolerance, or could it possibly be an allergy? I haven't been tested or diagnosed with celiac or anything yet, so I'm still not entirely sure. All I know is that gluten makes me very sick.. But especially with the itchiness and tight throat.. I'm allergic to acetaminophen and my reaction is similar, so it just makes me wonder. What do you think?

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
