Dear holdthe gluten,

I can't drink coffee either. I get sick just like you do. Tea has cafeen in it but not as much. Coke has it too, but tht adds sugar also. I drink tea.

You don't want to be drinking coffee while recovering on the gluten-free diet or if you have inflammation... if ever. Coffee is a strong gut irritant and will slow your progress significantly. Google the words "coffee gut irritant" and you'll find heaps of proof.

This is only true for some, not for all. Coffee has never bothered me, never. Tea has bothered me. I stopped drinking tea for a long time after going gluten free, I never stopped with my coffee. We are all different and no standard other than being completely gluten free is true for "all".

Some gluten intolerant have to give up dairy, but not all, I didn't. Some gluten intolerant can tolerate soy, some of us can't.

Coffee is bad for those who can't tolerate it, but it is fine for those of us who can.

Coffee has always given me the runs, but the real reason I don't drink it is the post-caffeine crash.

There seems to be a link between gluten and bipolar syndrome--and there is a very strong link between coffee/caffeine and bipolar syndrome. Like Deb says, we are all different--but if you have any tendencies toward neuro issues, I would steer clear of both gluten AND caffeine!

That said, because of coffee's acidity, I would agree that it is a likely irritant to a not-yet-recovered leaky gut.

Some little known facts about coffee....

The cheapest coffee has far more caffine in it because it uses robusta beans which naturally have more caffine....

So the first move is go for something 100% arabica.

Second.. the more water you run through coffee the more caffine gets taken out... so even though you'd think that filter coffee would be better than a real strong expresso its actually not....

Honestly I know that one take a bit of believing....

If you take a ristretto its half the water of a expresso and 1/5th of a "long" type coffee ....

Personally i like a good ristretto but if you prefer something "longer" then start with a ristretto and then add water instead of pushing more water through the beans... which at this point is mainly just leaching out more caffine and hardly any flavor...

The worst coffee is greek/turkish or I guess what you americans might call cowboy coffee where you leave the grounds to steep i the water thus leaching out the max amount of caffine...

If you google there are quite a few analyses of different coffee's ... I seem to remember the McDo's was the highest in caffine ...

Anyway....its a different way to look at it I suppose.... its just one of those things that is at first counter intuitive.

Do you mean coffee made in a French Press? The taste depends on the coffee you use. Also, I think the taste is a personal preference.

I had to give up coffee... :(

And boy, did I fight it!!

I drink chai tea now, as it is spiced, so it has a bite to it, which is a little more interesting to me than plain tea. It has made a big difference with my acid reflux - which could be causing your nauseau. Sometimes when we get rid of the gluten, we start noticing all the other things that are sensitive, I think.

Yes - I stopped drinking about a week ago and have noticed a tremendous decrease in the pain in the left side of my gut. I started drinking tea in the morning and haven't missed the coffee a bit.

I still drink coffee, but had to get rid of the sweet and low - had to go to real sugar. I limit my real coffee to one cup every 12 hours. If i am really jonesing for coffee after the first one, I go decaf.

sdr,

May I ask why you had to give up sweet & low (sacchharin) ? I've never used it (it's very bitter to my taste buds), but my wife uses lots of it (not celiac). I have read that of the main three sugar substitutes, it is the least objectionable (health nut wise, and I say that with all due respect as I may be one myownself), with equal (apertame) next and then splenda (sucralose).

Did you have actual reactions to it, or just gave it up on general principals?

best regards, lm

Hi ya'll Donna here

I can drink coffee with my sugar and cream (Coffee Mate Cream) is Gluten Free ya!(International Creamers) are not that i know of. But I can not drink the dark blends they tend to really hurt my tummy. Soft drinks have to be diet (I know aspertame is not good for me as well), regular hurt my tummy. I mistakely on Friday morning (I work nights I drank it at 3AM for everybody else that would be 3 in the afternoon you have to look at it that way) a regular Cherry Pepsi and my stomach burned for a while, and I think that contributed to my Migrane that I had on Sunday that started on Saturday night, My system is slow so my reaction time is about 1 to 2 days, sometime sooner. But I saw somewhere that flavored coffees are a no no for people who suffer from celiac disease or might suffer from celiac disease. So I stopped drinking flavored did not miss it too much. I do go to 7-11 for coffee and sometime choose to put the flavor syrup but i have to put sugar free flavor because the reg has high fructose corn syrup.

Oh well poop. Just burst my bubble why don't you? I buy the really good stuff and drink only espresso. So that dark dark brew actually contains LESS caffine? Uggggg. Well, I still prefer the taste, particularly since 2/3 of what I drink it decaf. Only way I've ever found to make decaf drinkable.

heya

i must say for myself my tummy has never been able to handle much caffine. i have been a 3 cup a day coffee drinker for 5+ years now and recently gave it up about 1 month ago (also briefly gave up 1 year ago but only for 1 month) I like the 'high' caffine gives me' but most ppl i know think i am depressed whenever coming down from the high. i tell them my brain is just having a rest! lol i am very sensative to all sorts be it caffine, alcohol or drugs (over the counter/prescibed ones. havent done any illegal ones apart from trying pot twice when i was 18, just didnt interest me)

but since i gave up coffee i have noticed a 'calm' within myself when i was always tense on coffee and of course it added to my tummy probs i think. and now whenever i have a high caffine cola drink or just too much cola, i get Horrible pains (last time i had some unknowingly. wasnt till my BF checked the label as he thought it Smelled like coffee, turned out to be coffee flavoured cola and higher caffine content in it)

and on the other hand, caffineated tea tends to Help me go to the toilet often, if i am a bit 'stuck' (thought some of u may like that info lol)

Trouble with coffee: YES. I am newly diagnosed and of course am still sorting it out like the rest of us, so here I am, sitting with the biggest bloated sore belly ever. I can't ever remember coffee not doing a number on me, but isn't it strange what we will put up with for a buzz? I think that coffee is really rough on the entire digestive system, and possibly there could be some gluten traces in it. Why not? Everything else seems to have gluten in it!

Pure coffee is highly unlikely to have gluten in it. Coffee beans live in the company of other coffee beans when they're harvested roasted and ground. The roasting equipment and processes are unique to coffee beans so they would not be sharing equipment with anything else. The exception would be some flavored coffees. Added flavorings can have gluten in them. The flavoring is not in the bean but added to the coffee as or after it's ground. I personally carefully check for those few companies that think chicory belongs in coffee. I'm allergic to chicory. But pure ground coffee beans are going to be gluten free unless someone deliberatly adds gluten to them, cross contaminates them in the process of brewing your cup of coffee, or perhaps uses the coffee grinder for grinding something other than coffee beans.

There is also the matter of what creamers and sweetners are used. I'm highly allergic to that Stevia crap. My reaction to Stevia is horrendous, much worse than to gluten. Others have allergic reactions to other sweetners. Some people, particually those newly diagnosed have issues with concentrated amounts of sugar and or milk products. Not all non dairy creamers are gluten free.

      I am glad you are feeling so much better!  Your posting will encourage others.  Thank you!
    • Last posted 2013 - Improving health
      When I first started this journey, roughly 11 yrs ago with symptoms, I had no clue. Eventually, having no luck with doctors (hypochondriac or psychosomatic), I googled my symptoms over and over looking for something... ANYTHING... that would give me a clue. Among other issues, my insides would not move, I was turning gray, felt like death, and had a persistent cough. I can't remember who but someone had posted on the forum and I found some of my symptoms. Eureka, I immediately began a gluten-free diet to see if it made any difference. Of course that was a journey, not realizing what products contained gluten. Long story shorter – first I went gluten-free, symptoms began to reappear, then it was soy (first organic was okay, then not), symptoms reappeared, took out corn, symptoms reappeared, then it was all grains. So the last couple of years I have been grain-free plus no sulphates. Actually, truth be told, my Celiac pharmacist gave me the recipe for health. I asked her if she liked a certain product. She answered, “I don't know, I have never tried it.” I asked her what she did use. She replied, “Nothing out of a box, a bag, or a bottle.” And that has pretty much been my life for the last couple of years. There is the odd product I try but it always has an after effect and I have to way the consequences against the enjoyment of it. I am one of those who react to 1 crumb in the butter, flour dust in the air, sulphates in anything, sometimes things that don't even seem like they would be a problem, like avocados and blueberries when I am contaminated. January 2016 I began this recitation. It is now May 5th, 2016 - Here I am 4 months later and I feel like screaming to anyone who will listen, “Things are improving!! My gut is healing!!” So what happened?? Someone suggested digestive enzymes. My insides were so compromised that I couldn't eat much besides fruit, veggies, and meat; all plain, all without being touched by people other than me. I could barely stand salt at times when I was compromised. Haven't been to a restaurant in years since I am not in a city that would have one to cater or understand this much of a problem. I started digestive enzymes but I read the label wrong and started with 5 first thing in the morning. Whatever... I began to notice improvements in what I could eat. Not anything different but just that I could eat without feeling ill or having my gut shut down. I stayed on those for a month and a half.. then I picked up a parasite from someone living in a very unclean apartment and visiting there and helping to clean. Well, that was a huge battle. I had to eat to discourage parasites. But in the process my insides began to heal dramatically. I was eating blackberries, drinking garlic keefir (which I couldn't have done 5 mths ago and gave me the first clue my insides had improved substantially), drinking oil of oregano or peppermint oil drops in a glasses of water, eating cabbage and green roughage. Drinking water with apple cider vinegar in it and Aloe Vera juice. After a couple of weeks my insides were a whole different story. I had a feeling of wellness that I hadn't had for years! I FELT like trying to eat something different. So I decided to try Gluten-free Rice Chex. Haven't had them in years.... and I am so happy! I can eat them!! (Not to say they are healthy, cause they are processed crap) but I didn't get sick and that was the amazing part. So now I am beginning to try a few things that would have set me back previously, I have made my own crème brulee because I have always been able to eat eggs. But the sugar was causing problems, but now it's okay. The issue I have now is that I want to try things too fast so I am having to exercise restraint. So here is it – parasites are very common, everyone has them however whether they cause problems depends on your immune system. Does it not makes sense that they would cause leaky gut? An over abundance in the gut would destroy gut tissue and take nutrients from a person and possibly put holes in the gut leading to food reactions? Digestive enzymes help to destroy the protective coating around parasites. Foods that discourage them or kill them are blackberries, garlic, cabbage, oil of oregano, peppermint oil, aloe vera juice, Braggs apple cider vinegar and more (google to find). I found medication didn't do anything so I turned to all the other. So this is how it is today. I don't suggest it is the answer to anyone else's problems but when I found this site, hidden in the posts was the beginning of the answers for me.  I may still be gluten, soy, corn intolerant but I am feeling so good now and I just thought I would tell someone.  I just wanted to share. Thanks for reading.
    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      Not to mention my hips and knees are killing me and I have really bad calf pains and horrible bloating after just 3 days of glutening. I don't think I could live like this for a whole week.
    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      I saw my gi today and he said to not worry about eating gluten. I have abdominal pain in the small intestine area and referred pain in my back, indicating pretty bad damage. So I'll just go without the gluten and do the genetic testing if needed.
    • Vagus Nerve Attack
      Hello All: I came across this series of posts from as Google search on "Wheat Vagus Nerve". I find all of your replies very interesting and would like to add mine for those searching for information but with differing symptoms. I have struggled with the vagus nerve impact to breathing as Maria mentioned in the original post, but only an impact to breathing and nothing else.  But my symptoms were brought on not only by wheat, but also by other ingredients such as dark chocolate, probiotics, caprylic acid, mustard, fluoride in toothpaste/mouthwash just to name a few.  I found when I sat down my breathing would return to normal, but as soon I got up, the impact would return. The impact to breathing would come 4-6 hours after ingestion and last for about the same amount of time.  At times I could not even take ten steps without having to stop, not being able to breath even moderately.  The symptoms now are decreasing in severity but not in duration. My doctor checked my blood for celiac and results were negative. A number of chest x-rays to rule out COPD.  I am waiting on an appoint with an allergy specialist in a few weeks to see what they have to say.  Needless to say, it is difficult to maintain a healthy weight. Thanks for your posts, and I hope my contribution is of benefit to others also.

      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.
