Hi everybody I was just wondering if any body knows if pepsi or diet pepsi contain gluten , also i read an article that alot of foods or beverages that have caramel color in their ingredients probably contain gluten because the color is made from wheat.

From the CSA book published as of last Fall, and double checked thru the Wheaton-Gluten Free support group's list, all Coca-Cola (USA & Canada) products are gluten free. The same thing goes for Pepsi. You can verify yourself if you like to make sure nothing has changed since;

Coca-Cola (800-438-2653)

Pepsi (800-433-2652)

Somwhere on this board there are links to gluten free food lists, I reccomend the CSA and the Wheaton ones, they are very large.

The Pepsi website states that their caramel coloring is from corn sugar, which I understand is true of caramel coloring that originates in the US.

I agree with calling them. I try and send out emails to companies that don't clearly label their products and I am unsure about an ingredient.

Coca-Cola is gluten-free: regular, caffeine free, diet, diet and caffeine free, etc...I don't know about that C2, but it's probably fine as well. I didn't check into Vanilla or Cherry Coke, but I don't drink those that often....the regular kinds that I listed above are fine.

Pepsi is gluten-free: regular, caffeine free, diet, diet and caffeine free...I didn't check into any variations they might have....like something with vanilla....

Most sodas are gluten-free....just be careful with root beer. A&W Root Beer is fine. Other gluten-free sodas that I'm aware of include Coke, Sprite, 7up, Canada Dry, Sunkist, Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, Schweppes. I drink Sunkist, Coke (and Pepsi), and Sprite somewhat "regularly".

While we are talking about soda, I have not seen my FAVORITE types of soda listed here. Neither one contains any kind of carmel I would think, since the color of the soda isn't dark.

The kinds would be Mountain Dew & Code Red Mountain Dew.

I just installed a 6 flavor restaurant style soda fountain in my basement. I have Pepsi products, the two mentioned above, then Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Pibb Xtra (this is the only Coke Product I have) and Yellow Lemonade.

I want to remain 100% gluten-free, but, it is going to be a learning curve.

Hey to all,

i found that pretty strange, since i tried Pepsi and had really painful stomach ache and head (bone) ache. And i was so sad, because i love Pepsi. I'm pretty sure, i didn't make another mistake in my diet. So it can only be the Pepsi. Or does the vanilla and chocolate icecream from Turkey Hill contain gluten? I thought they don't have gluten actually.

I know that Pepsi doesn't have gluten (unless there was some freak batch of it).......I've never heard Turkey Hill listed as being gluten-free, but it probably is....dunno what caused that reaction

Hey all - just got this from Coke. I am still trying to get them to tell me if DIET CHERRY COKE IS gluten free.

Thank you for contacting The Coca-Cola Company.

We apologize for the delay in our response and appreciate your patience.

However, we have some new information that we think you might find helpful.

We are currently able to confirm that Coca-Cola classic, caffeine free Coca-Cola

classic, Coca-Cola C2, Diet Coke, Diet Coke with Lemon, Diet Coke with Lime,

caffeine free Diet Coke, Sprite, Sprite ReMix Berryclear, diet Sprite, vanilla

Coke, diet vanilla Coke, cherry Coke, Fresca, and our 100% juice products

(without added ingredients) are gluten free.

Additionally, we can tell you that all of our other products meet Codex's

definition of gluten-free, which is less than 200 ppm (0.02%) gluten. Codex has

examined the data and determined that less than 200 ppm gluten is below the

level in which people with celiac disease would experience adverse reactions.

However, at this time the U.S. Food and Drug Administration does not have a

regulatory definition of gluten-free.

We can assure you that the exact amount of gluten in these products is very low

- perhaps even zero. Some minor ingredients in these products are manufactured

from plants that gluten-sensitive people could react to, so we are unable to

state categorically that they are totally gluten-free even though they may have

undetectable levels of gluten in them. The Codex guideline provides a very low

threshold for gluten content and exposures below this level are not expected to

result in damage to the majority of gluten-sensitive individuals. However,

extremely gluten-sensitive individuals should discuss consumption of these

products with their health care provider.

We hope this information is helpful. If you have any additional questions or

comments, please visit our Web site again.

I tried to find out if Fanta (orange) was gluten-free......they're testing it.

I was at Costco this week and noticed a case of Sparkling Ice which is sparkling spring water with flavors and a full days worth of vitamin C. It is sweetened by Splenda and has only 3 calories. So I called the company right then and there and they said all their products are gluten free. So, jumping up and down and squealing in Costco, I bought a case and they're great. Their website is www.talkingrain.com and they have the gluten free comment on their FAQ page. So, I've had the grapefruit and can't wait to try the Mango and Black Raspberry. I also bought some Philly Swirl Italian Ice and that's gluten-free as well. Their website tells you that except for their new sanwiches their other products are gluten-free. It's www.phillyswirl.com.

Sorry if I'm rambling but it's now 4:00 a.m. I can't sleep so I figured I'd hang out here!

Hey Stef,

I don't know if you were drinking regular Pepsi or Diet Pepsi. Some Diet drinks have a chemical sweetener called Aspartame. Which, in case studies, mixes with our stomach acids and creates formaldahyde. Also, in all of the monkeys that were fed aspartame, All of them developed Granmal seizures. My husbands aunt also developed these seizures from drinking Diet sodas. When she quit drinking them, the seizures stopped. I recommend Diet Rite, or any other Diet drink sweetened with Splenda which is a safe alternative for sugar and has not been known to cause health risks as far as I know.

Wait..the above post says that those certain coke products are under 200 PPM? did you mean to say 20 ppm? I know most coke products are gluten-free but if the others are only able to guarantee 200 ppm, I wouldn't touch it.

Yay! :D I checked with Pepsi on the internet; they have some feature called "ask lisa".....it's like a search engine. I typed in "gluten free" and one of the results: are pepsi products gluten free? They say that ALL Pepsi products are gluten-free and none contain gluten! That encompasses everything such as their other soft drinks and non-carbonated beverages.

By the way, Glen4Cindy, this means that Mountain Dew and Mountain Dew Code Red are gluten-free....

    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam, If you are going to continue the celiac testing with an endoscopy, you need to keep eating gluten until it's done. It can be hard for vegetarians to keep their vitamin D levels up.   This Vitamin D  Council link has some good info on ways to boost your levels. https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/
    • Blood results - odd
      Your ferritin was very low!  My result was a 2 when I was diagnosed.    I hard a hard time breathing and the fatigue was awful due to low hemoglobin levels.  But after going gluten free and taking iron for a few months, I quickly recovered from iron-deficiency anemia.  I still have hemologobin levels that are slightly below range due to Thalassemia which is genetic and my body has adjusted for it.   My B12 and folate levels are  super high.  My B12 is over 2000!  Yeah, I googled and ruled out cancers, etc.  Looks like some of us do not process man-made B12 often included in supplements.  I opted for natural sources of B-12 and folate and my levels have come down a bit.   Let us know your results.  Read the Newbie 101 section under "Coping" within this forum for tips.   Be patient.  It can take months, to years to feel good.  But it will happen!    
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Welcome to the forum!   Well.....in theory you should be able to heal within a few months (grow new villi, etc.).  The reality is that it takes so much longer -- like a year or two (I kid you not!)  Why?  celiac disease can damage more than just the gut.  Depending on what was damaged (nerves, bones, etc) can impact healing time.  The gluten-free diet has a very steep learning curve.  It's not just giving up gluten.  It's avoiding cross contamination.  Becoming an expert in reading labels.  Learning to avoid foods processed on shared lines in a facility.  Then there are intolerances that most celiacs develop.  The most common ones is lactose.  Why?  The villi tips release the enzymes to digest lactose.  No villi tips?  Then you can not digest lactose.  Often this is temporary, but if you are one of the many adults in this world, you might already be lactose intolerant or might become so as you age.   Other intolerances that members often report include corn or soy.   Some celiacs react to oats, even gluten free.  So avoid oats for six months.  So, try cutting out dairy for a few days and see how you feel.  Then add in those items that have the least lactose:  hard cheese, butter, yogurt and see how you feel.   Avoid eating out for six months until you have seen some improvement.   Read our Newbie 101 thread under coping for more ideas!  Hope you feel better soon.   
    • Recovery diet, nutrition, leaky gut?
      I am having my endoscopy on Tuesday. I want to begin to heal my gut asap. I spent this morning in the ER with stabbing pain in my right shoulder blade, pain to the left of my belly button and vomiting. It's referred pain from my small intestine. I couldn't move or breathe hardly it hurt so bad. I NEED to get everything together to heal my gut asap. I don't want to ever go through this again. What are your recommendations? I've been reading a bit on leaky gut - anyone have good experience/links Or would the autoimmune diet be better? Are they one in the same? I know I am also reacting to casein and possibly potatoes.

      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,
