Diet Coke
0

11 posts in this topic

I've been gluten free less than two weeks and things seems to be going okay. However, I have given up Diet Coke due to the fact that I don't know whether or not I can have it. So far it seems to be the only item I've missed. Being so new to this, I am doing research but haven't found an exact answer to whether or not I can have Diet Coke. Does anyone know whether or not it is allowed on a gluten-free diet?

Side note: I visited Chili's restaurant this week and my server actually knew what gluten-free was and brought me an appropriate menu--I was completely surprised by this. (We live in a relatively small town and I was afraid that eating out would be a nightmare) I was able to enjoy my meal and didn't have any side affects!

Diet coke is gluten-free, but some people who are sensitive may react to the artificial flavors and sweeteners.

Re: eating out - it can be difficult and emotionally trying. I usually bring along my own condiments (gluten-free soy sauce, cocktail sauce, sald dressing, etc.). It does seem like more and more restaraunts are getting on the gluten-free bandwagon - I don't know if you have a Chipoltle's nearby, but nearly everything they have (including the chips and maragritas!) minus the tortillas is gluten free. I LOVE that place.

Good luck,

zax

Completely off topic from diet coke, but, was the Chiles gluten-free menu kid friendly? I know the Outback has a gluten-free menu also so I have been checking out safe places to go with a 5 year old.

You are correct. It's bad for you. Moderation is key.

Diet Coke along with most soft drinks are gluten free. All soft drinks by Pepsi and Coke are gluten free. I have heard that it interferes with the absorption of calcium so I try to limit my intake. I have heard it takes 30 glasses of water to neutralize the acid in one can of soda!

Most people have coffee with their breakfast. I drink Diet Coke with mine. I like my caffeine cold :D . I figure I could be addicted to worse things. B)

Yes, there were two entrees for children, one was the burger without a bun and I can't remember the other one-sorry. The shake that they make for kids was also on the menu--if a dedicated blender was used. Good luck!

Enjoy your diet Coke, it is gluten-free.

Awesome! Thank you--I will limit my Diet Coke dosage, but I am so glad to know that I can have one every once in a while!

Me too! I've been drinking OJ instead, it's nice to know I can substitute a Diet Coke!
