Coffee?

19 posts in this topic

Anyone ever have a problem after drinking the occasional cup of maxwell house coffee? I know that coffee is gluten-free, but it still pisses off my DH. And yes , it's plain old coffee with 2% milk and 100% organic sugar. And no, I am not lactose intollerent , dairy, or caissein (sp?) intollerent

You may be intolerant to coffee, I am.

I've never noticed that coffee bothered my skin, but it sure does a number on my stomach. I haven't been able to drink it in years.

Oh gawd....

I was on vacation in Florida...at my aunts. I had some Dunkin Donuts...coffee.....

I was in the loo for over 2 hrs on and off...stomach cramps....etc etc.

Yesterday when I went to my big GI appt she said until your intestines have healed....coffee can do a number on celiacs...only because its so rough on your system....and just goes right through.

So....as much as I would looooooove to drink it....I just can't anymore....so I stick with tea with milk...liek Chai.....or green....or Jasmine....

Most coffees don't bother me (drink it black), but everytime I've tried those Folger's flavored coffee grounds in the plastic tub I have something that seems like a mild gluten reaction within a couple of days. Since I'm new at gluten free, I'm not absolutely certain it is the folgers, but it's seemed like it enough I gave my folger's chocolate and French vanilla tubs to someone at work...now I just sit and inhale how good it smells when they are brewing it, and stick with my plain old Maxwellhouse, which never seems to bother me.

Maybe one day in the future I'll try a little of those folgers again. I wonder sometimes what-all is in ground coffee...it might be better to just grind your own beans. But it's true what the others have said: I know lots of people (celiac or not) who just cannnot drink coffee without it tearing up their stomachs.

I've switched to organic coffees, but used to have trouble with certain brands of coffee... some companies actually dust their lines with flour to keep the beans moving along... (was told this after calling one company after being in the bathroom for two days straight after trying their coffee)

Wonder if it would be a good idea to just buy coffee beans, rinse them off and grind them as necessary????

Maybe I sound really paranoid...maybe I just AM, but the longer I go at this, the better I feel, and I'm not into tempting fate with any possible down days...I like feeling GOOD.

Coffee can just be hard on your system...it's quite acidic. It's one of the items doctors recommend cutting out of the diet when someone experiences stomach/GI or bladder ailments.

You could try a milder roast to see if it is any better.

If a company dusted with flour, wouldn't it need to be on the ingredients list? I doubt many coffee companies do that anyway...coffee beans don't have a tendency to clump together anyway, and flour would negatively affect the end product.

Yes, I too tend to stick with one cup of hot tea in the morning. Even people without a gluten problem have coffee issues...if you start to ask around others who can tolerate gluten, you will see that a majority of them cannot handle coffee very well. If my father-in-law (who pretty much has an iron stomach) even smells coffee brewing it send him off to the bathroom...but he drinks it every morning. My friend has to go every morning as soon as she takes her first sip of coffee. My mother always told me that coffee is what keeps her regular evryday, because that's when she uses the bathroom. Coffee is definitely a natural form of a kind of "laxative" if you ask me!

brizzo, since you're having issues with your skin, have you done any allergy testing to see if there are other allergy triggers? What about patch testing for chemical sensitivities/allergies?

One of my major symptoms is skin itchiness & sensitivity...I get hives, eczema and what the dermatologist thinks may be psoriasis (have to go back during a flare up to confirm). I know I'm allergic to a number of things and just confirmed with patch testing that I'm allergic to nickel, chromium and cobalt. Those things are in all sorts of products we use daily, including vitamin supplements and foods. For the nickel allergy I was given info about which foods I need to eliminate if my skin isn't improving from avoiding obvious nickel products...that includes foods stored in metal cans, jars, etc (coffee is on the safe list in terms of natural nickel content, but pre-ground coffee is often stored in metal cans.)

Yea, I've done the whole skin allergy test for contact allergy.....Believe it or not, I had no allergies at all. My coffee reaction isn't GI, it's DH. I will try organic coffee and filters, seems like the next best approach..

Actually, it's a great idea to buy a coffee roaster and roast your own. You'll save tons of money doing it, and it will be the best coffee you ever had. I have no idea about gluten that might be in coffee, though. I had to give it up, but my roaster was about ready to be replaced anyway.

hi. i just wanted to let you know that i also had an allergic reaction to maxwellhouse master blend coffee. i have been a cofee drinker for many years often drinking eight to ten cups a day, although i have never really drank that much maxwellhouse. I recently bought some because it was on sale and we loved the taste of it, so i continued to buy it for the next two weeks. my hands were swelling and turning bright red, itching horribly. i thought i had a blood sugar problem until it occurred to me that the syptoms coincided with the coffee brand switch. i changed back and no more syptoms. i wonder what is in that brand because i have no other known allergies other than mild seasonal and to natural hair lightener products, however i should mention that my 17 month old son is allergic to everything but air.

With all my intolerance's, coffee has never been a problem and I am so thankful for that. It and my peanut butter, they are like the 2 comfort foods that have not been taken away. Maxwell House though, I must say, is the least favorite of all, I just found that out. It was on sale a few weeks ago and I bought it just for that reason. I have been drinking Folgers and I like the Folgers so much better. I love 7/11 coffee and do stop for Dunkin Donuts (coffee) sometimes and never have problems. Flavored coffee's can be a problem, they sometimes do contain gluten, just as flavored teas do. I was glutened by hazelnut coffee at a Hess station about 5 yrs ago and I will never try a flavored coffee again, I don't like flavored coffee anyways, the hazelnut I got was made in the wrong pot and I got it by accident. Within 20 minutes of drinking it, I had terrible cramps.

I love my coffee!!! :D

    • Mexican?
      Chipotle is one of my favorite places to eat, but it is a 50/50 chance of having a reaction due to cross-contamination.  Yes, they graciously make an effort to be gluten-free and will change gloves.  BUT, before that they used gloves and handled flour tortillas and then used same gloves to reach into the lettuce and cheese--voila--cross-contaminated food.  Changing gloves for you does not avoid this cross-contamination problem.  I started having reactions and my daughter advised me to avoid all the corn products there because of what she read on their website about allergens--so no more chips, or crispy taco shells, or corn.  I also avoid the green salsa and the pico de gallo--not that I am aware of cross contamination but she never eats that there and she has been successful at not having reactions, so that is what I do now and have had much success. Here is what I get:   burrito bowl with either white or brown cilantro lime rice, grilled veggies, black beans, barbacoa, red salsa, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, and lettuce on top.  So GOOD! and so far, safe for me.
    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Hi Elle.   To be honest, to this day I am not sure if I actually had zoster sine herpete.  It was one of several suggestions by bewildered doctors.  What I can tell you is that I had to have MRIs  because one doctor thought I might have trapped nerve in my spine and I thought it would reveal something dreadful being the sort of person who gets weird nerve sensations - and it didn't reveal a thing.   It was unsettling to have symptoms like that for so long but what made me think my brother in law might have been right was because the worst of the symptoms lasted a year which I gather is pretty typical (but don't panic, because they can go a lot faster!)   My nutritionalist told me that if we get run down we are more prone to shingles so that is something to watch. Easy to say (and I'm speaking to myself here!) try not to spend too much time by yourself worrying about these things because anxiety never helps with these sort of nerve issues. I found that rest was very beneficial so I would recommend you try to get as much of that as you can.  Also, someone suggested a warm bath for 20 minutes with some Epsom salts.  That helped too. As I say, just one reason you might be getting this pain but I would continue with the investigations and perhaps mention the pain to your doctor and ask if it could be shingles.      
    • Rudy's Not Gluten Free
      Rudy's is one of my favorite places to eat, but you do have to be VERY careful due to cross-contamination.  I always get the cutter's choice brisket, some form of potatoes (new potatoes or baked potato), pinto beans, 3-bean salad and use generous slathering of their regular BBQ sauce, not the Sissy Sauce.   My daughter has gotten sick a couple of times dining with us at Rudy's, but we have narrowed down the culprit to cross contamination.  She usually orders the stuffed baked potato, gets brisket (chopped up)--not the chopped BBQ, and asks them to use a new plastic knife to  cut open the potato.  They use tissue to pick up the chopped meat and put it on the potato which also comes with sour cream, butter/margarine, and grated cheddar cheese.  They have always been very courteous about accommodating us.  This has eliminated my daughter from having reactions.  (The regular metal knife had been used on bread.)  I also reach over the tray as it is being filled and place one of their paper tissues over my meat or potato so that when they place my husband's bread slices or sandwich (made with regular bread), crumbs won't get on my food.  I am so thankful for Rudy's--it is so good--and with taking these precautions, I believe it is relatively safe.  
    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Thank you, squirmingitch. I'll pass that on to Mom, too. Cristiana, did they ever determine what caused your nerve pain or do you now think it was related to Celiac? That form of shingles sounds awful (well, any form sounds awful - my mom's had it 3 times!) and fortunately I do not think that's what's ailing me.

      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.
