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....

      Hi Cristiana, You are quite right, there could be something wrong with the batch. I have often wondered this myself when I've had symptoms. A lot of manufacturers recall products when they find contamination issues, I often wonder though, how many products 'sneak' under the radar and no-one knows for sure; it could be the reason why so many of us wonder what we did to get 'glutened'.

      Thank you everyone. I have scheduled a second opinion. He last biopsie came back and he is lactose intolerant.     
    • Gluten ataxia...?
      I was explaining that some people have other trouble that is immune related and caused by eating gluten, but doesn't effect the gut in a noticeable way. According to the paper that I quoted there are some people which have different types of brain problems but don't have inflammation when tested by a biopsy.  The author used the term "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" to refer to anyone who has any brain trouble that can be traced to gluten but without obvious gut inflammation.  There are a lot of different possible ways gluten can effect the brain some may not be related to the gut.  It could still be an immune system problem.  Normally "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" refers to just a food intolerance.  Withdrawal symptoms are not normal and could be indicative of an immune system response of some sort, but I don't know for sure.

      Hi Richie I've put the above in quotes as you have described in the first and second sentence how I felt six months prior to my DX.   In my own case, in the end I concluded it was anxiety after consulting Dr Google!  It was such an alien feeling to me, I couldn't even think what it was, particularly as life was pretty good at the time.  Anxiety is a problem for a lot of celiacs prior to diagnosis, and often after glutening after going gluten-free. You mention breathlessness, this of course can be for reasons such as anaemia (again a common celiac problem, I had this prior to DX) but of course also can arise if you are anxious.   Re 'gluten free' - Flowerqueen is right, from what I have read on this forum some people really do seem to react with less than 20ppm.    But perhaps some other things to consider...  could there be something wrong with the batch you have consumed?  Might it be worth contacting the manufacturers?   That said, you could , as Flowerqueen suggests, have a problem with another ingredient, in the product or something else you consumed. In the past I have had a terrible reaction - fever, trembling, diarrhea, stomach cramps that lasted up to three hours the last three times I ate..... broccoli, of all things.    Who would have thought that possible?  I have often thought I should try it again, just to be sure it was the broccoli, as it is a 'super food' that I ought to have in my diet, that I like very much, but the thought of having such a reaction again has put me off. I do hope you will find some answers soon.

      Hi Richie,  I've not heard of this drink before, as I live in the UK, but any drink made from barley is something you should avoid.  There's a brand in the UK that makes lemon and barley water and orange and barley water and Coeliac UK say it is not safe for people with Coeliac disease.  (Our labelling laws in the UK changed a couple of years ago).  You say the drink you had was under 20 ppm, which is acceptable (usually) for coeliacs, but a lot of people are super-sensitive to gluten even in very small amounts.  I recently had a similar problem with something which was supposed to be okay for coeliacs, but when I checked the website of the product, for all it said there were no gluten containing ingredients, it was produced in an area where gluten was present, which was enough to put me off and must admit, the symptoms you describe sound very much like I experienced at the time.  (Personally I'd be avoiding that particular drink like the plague from now on). One other thing though,  have you checked the ingredients to see if there could be anything else in it which you may be intolerant to?

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
