Starbucks Coffee

5 posts in this topic

Hello there,

I'm Kylie and have been gluten free for a year. Things have been going relatively well, but i am still having a few digestive problems. One was this evening, and so i decided to post and see if anyone knew anything about it. Starbucks coffee, nowhere can i find any hints on ingredients for the instore coffee. I know the bottled beverages (except for mocha flavor) have maltodextrin in them. I drink the peppermint mocha (either hot or frappachino style). And tonight i have been rather ill. Now it's not the normal, you're feeling ok, not feeling good, feeling really really crappy, loose all your food, start to feel a little better celiac sick. It lasted for hours, and is still lingering. So if anyone has any insight i would really appreciate it! Thanks a lot.

Kylie

When I contacted Starbucks recently they said, "All Starbucks beverages are gluten free with the EXCEPTION of Frappucinos that contain Java Chips, Vanilla Powder and/or Malt Powder." I'm not positive about the bottled drinks but I believe the Starbucks brand ones that they sell are gluten free. As far as the peppermint mocha making you sick, perhaps it contains one of the above ingredients? I hope I answered your question.

I contacted Starbucks earlier this week in regards to their double shots, bottled frapps, and their in store freshly made stuff, i got the same answer the other person said....avoid java chips, vanilla bean powder, and the malt powder....everything else is fine.

Maltodextrin is gluten-free, it is not the same as barley malt.

What was said above is what I've heard, too. There's a lifelong celiac at the Starbucks I went to where we used to live and she verified it, and I trust her.

What might have happened is that their coffee, especially their espresso, is very strong. Many people get loose stools after drinking coffee. In fact, I've always found a venti Starbucks coffee to work wonders on constipation ;) . Maybe it's not a gluten problem.

The other thing is, the lattes have a LOT of milk .... that ended up being a problem for me. I would get sick every time I had a latte, but it was the casein, not gluten.

EDIT- if you got it frapp style, perhaps the blender wasn't cleaned out good enough. I always mention I have food allergies and they clean them extra for me ... well, before I knew about my casein problem ...

Hi there, just wanted to add, that this weekend I've tried the bottled frappuccino's from Starbucks, the moccha, vanilla and regular coffee one. But other than a little growling I have not been sick at all. Since I get sick as a dog from anything gluten my guess is, that it's really glutenfree. I've had some very little problems in reacting to milk and caffeine though. Maybe it was one of those ingredients instead.
