You can *never* assume that an entire category of food is gluten free. ALWAYS read the labels. Each time, every time.

Some teas have barley or flavors added to them that make them not gluten free. I think we've come across a soda, once, on the board that wasn't - it was an unsual one, and I don't know that I ever saw it personally, but it can potentially hide in the caramel coloring. And flavored coffee can also hide flavoring that is derived from gluten.

Never assume a *type* of food is safe (outside of whole, naturally gluten-free foods that don't *have* ingredients like fruits and vegetables), and *always* read ingredient labels.

Coke and Pepsi products are OK. I have never heard of a ground coffee that has gluten. Be careful of specialty coffee houses as some of thier mixed coffees have gluten added. Most Starbucks drinks are gluten-free.

The same goes for tea. The lipton tea bags are fine as most are. Be careful of exotic teas.

It does get easier with time to figure out this gluten-free stuff. I hope you are feeling better soon.

Thank you for the advise. I will have to check all labels before enjoying myself. Better safe than sorry. :)

Have you checked all your hygeine products? You must check all your lip gloss/stick. Have you been kissing anyone? Believe it or not, you can be cross-contaminated very easy from your loved ones.

When I first went gluten free I was sensitive to annatto, vinegar, and vanilla. Keep a food diary, because you may have sensitivity to other foods. I am now able to have annatto, distilled vinegar, and I still buy vanilla that is labeled gluten free.

Well, just as an example, here's the Publix brand soda gluten-free list from Publix grocery stores -

Regular sodas:

Black Cherry

Cherry

Citrus Hit

Club Soda

Cola

Cream

Ginger Ale

Grape

Lemon Lime

Orange

Raspberry Seltzer

Root Beer

Diet Sodas

Diet/Caffeine free Cola

Diet Cola

Reg/Diet Tonic water

Now you know I'd pick the diet lemon lime soda and drink it right down before double checking the list! I thought for sure it'd be gluten-free. :o Nope.

I remember hearing that one of the drinks at Starbucks wasn't gluten-free. Maybe Mochachino or something? Java chips or something like that? And Rice Dream rice milk isn't gluten-free. It has barley in it.

3) The problem with caramel color is it may or may not contain gluten depending on how it is manufactured. In the USA caramel color must conform with the FDA standard of identity from 21CFR CH.1. This statute says: the color additive caramel is the dark-brown liquid or solid material resulting from the carefully controlled heat treatment of the following food-grade carbohydrates: Dextrose (corn sugar), invert sugar, lactose (milk sugar), malt syrup (usually from barley malt), molasses (from cane), starch hydrolysates and fractions thereof (can include wheat), sucrose (cane or beet). Also, acids, alkalis and salts are listed as additives which may be employed to assist the caramelization process.

Soda gives me problems.

I drink http://www.reedsinc.com/virgils/ Virgil's soda, which is gluten free and doesn't give me problems.

Here's another that doesn't bother me http://www.oogave.com/

This thread is six years old and may no longer be accurate.

Carmel color is not a concern for people with Celiac Disease.

      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it.

      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

      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.
