I have DD coffee daily and never have any problems. But a word of caution, I did get gluttened once and I think it was from the lid being put on by someone who had just handled the donuts. Now I always remove the lid before drinking and have only had a few spills lol.

My DD16 and I were just saying we would kill for a real donut!

I don't think I could go into a Krispy Kreme or Dunkin Donuts because the smell would just kill me. :(

I MISS DONUTS!!! (and the Kinnikinnicks are nice, but they aren't Krispy Kreme)

I drink DD coffee and it makes me sick. I'm trying to figure out why. Yesterday I tried a local coffee, Community, who makes a half-caffeine version. I was a little sick, but manageable. Today I tried DD for kicks and puked it up about 5 minutes later. If they say their beverages are gluten-free, then why do I get sick every time I drink it?

Cross contamination is the likely answer. Especially if they actually make the doughnuts there. I personally wouldn't risk it.

Haha. We don't even have a DD here. I buy it from the store and make it at home. So no cross contamination.

What else do they process at the plant? Cross contamination can occur in a plant setting if they are making items that are not gluten free. If you can drink other coffee with no issues then just stick to the brand that doesn't make you sick.

i drink DD coffee everyday from their store and don't have problems. i used to drink regular but switched to decaf after going gluten-free which doesn't seem to run through me like the regular coffee did.

my friend (who doesn't have any food issues) said she gets nauseous from their coffee but recently had it black without cream or anything in it and was fine.

I love DD coffee, it doesn't make me sick so much as it makes me 'loose' if you know what I mean. This is not always a bad thing, however, but I was worrying that it may have gluten. I make it at home so it's not cross contaminated. Other coffee doesn't have the same drastic effect but does seem to be sort of a 'stimulant to the system'.

I've started questioning whether DD ground coffee is gluten-free also. I've been having the same issues with some of their coffee as you have. I emailed them earlier this week, and these are the responses I received.

While away for the weekend I got 'glutened' and was afraid it was the flavored DD Iced coffee I 'treated' myself to while driving.

I have since checked their website and you are able to see a list of the ingredients for the flavored syrups at http://www.dunkindonuts.com/content/dunkindonuts/en/menu/nutrition/nutrition_catalog.html.

The good news is the coffee was not to blame :D - the bad news is the calorie count was more than I expected :huh: .

I noticed that the Dunks I used to get at their shops tastes different from the Dunks I make at home. It ALMOST tastes to me like there is a little bit of sugar doughnut taste in the stuff from the actual doughnut shops. I know that a lot of Dunks shops get their doughnuts off a truck and don't make them at the shops themselves, but I would still think the chance of CC is pretty high. The employees are touching doughnuts all day and then they touch the coffe filters.

We have no Dunks here in South Dakota but I buy their coffee in the grocery store and make it at home. It is one of my special treats - especially when I make it in the French press. It has never made me sick. On the contrary, a cup of Dunks in the morning makes me feel so good!

When I lived in Connecticut I worked in a lot of different reataurants. We were always allowed to drink as much free coffee as we wanted. And yet at every place I worked, someone would always make a Dunks run and bring coffee for all of us. Every night. At one place I worked, the CUSTOMERS would bring me Dunkin' Dark Roast (which they no longer make) because they knew I loved it. I remember one night I had FOUR large cups lined up on the shelf because they all brought me some at the same time. I drank it all too. Didn't sleep when I got home, but it was worth it. :D

I am not a coffee drinker, but love iced tea and get it often at DD- because it's on my way to drop kiddo at school, run errands, etc. I have never had problems with it, but have no idea yet quite honestly if I react to CC- I have been gluten-free for 6 months and not had an issue yet. My hubby asked me one day "do you think it is wise to get a drink from a DONUT place that handles donuts all day long??" --- guess I never thought about the people handling them, my tea has a straw which is not open, so I don't really know that I would get anything in the drink itself, since they should only be touching the outside. But, I suppose there is a cause for concern, realistically, given the place I am ordering from!

I personally work at a DD in Baltimore.  I've been there for three weeks, and I am seeing problems with my system.  I don't eat anything there (for obvious reasons,) but I do drink a small sweet tea during my shift.  I don't use a lid with it either.  Is it possible that I am inhaling small amounts of flour that are sufficient to trigger an immune response?  If so, does anyone know if there is any way I can avoid it with out having to find a new job?

I would definitely put a lid on my tea if there is flour being used. You could also have it on your hands and be getting it in your mouth by touching your face.

Hi Melissa, does the cappuccino contain soy? or does any of your flavored coffee contains soy? Please let me know.

    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Yep, get tested for celiac.  You have plenty of digestive symptoms to indicate it.
    • Weird Reaction
      Hi Richie, It definitely sounds like you got glutened.  Over here in the USA they can't label foods gluten-free if they are made from gluten ingredients, period.  So your barley drink would not be labeled gluten-free here.  A while back I read something about the testing for gluten in foods not being as accurate for detecting barley hordein as it is for wheat gliaden.  So the gluten-free testing (if they do any) that your drink maker does may not be reliable. Celiac disease is an autoimmune condition.  So the immune system starts reacting when it detects gluten and damages the gut lining.  An immune reaction is not like a food poisoning event, where most of the damage is only while the food is actually in your system and then ends.  An immune reaction can continue for weeks to months.  The immune system is really quite serious about protecting our bodies.  And since it is designed to detect and attack micro-organisms it reacts to tiny amounts of gluten. Wheat, barley, and rye are the main gluten grains that affect celiacs.  But some celiacs also react to oat gluten.

      Hi Richie,  Glad you are feeling better. I wondered have you been officially diagnosed with coeliac disease? Just wondering as you say you are anaemic, that is one of the symptoms of coeliac disease, along with other general malnutrition. You don't need to eat meat for iron though, you can get it from non-heme foods, like spinach or parsley. Just be careful with the drink with barley, it may be that you only start to have symptoms if you consume a lot of it, but if you have coeliac disease the damage is still been done to your gut regardless of whether you have symptoms or not, which will ultimately lead to malnutrition as well as other things.

      I think, if all this is caused by glutening, it could be that it takes a while to work its way out of your system. I should explain about what I said about organic broccoli.   I don't have a problem with organic food,  in fact, I buy organic milk and carrots all the time, but I don't want to try organic broccoli in case it is the broccoli that is the problem, not the insecticide.    I meant to ask, are you a coeliac or is it non-coeliac gluten intolerance that you have?   I wonder what sort of support you get in Australia for these conditions once diagnosed?   Here in the UK I think the understanding is that if new gastro symptoms have lasted for more than six weeks it needs to be investigated.   I have found this very helpful advice because I do get odd twinges of pain and sometimes changes in bowel movements (sorry if tmi) but they rarely last more than a couple of weeks.   If they do persist I mention it to my gastroenteroligist and he follows it up.  I recently had a sigmoidoscopy for left sided pain and they found nothing.  Turns out it was to do with lactose intolerance, but I always imagine the worse!    
    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Welcome, @iwillmoveamountain! Of course you are not wrong to pursue getting testing for celiac. My advice is to drop that doctor and find a new one, preferably one who is celiac savvy, and who will listen to you and test you for the disease.

      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.
