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.

    • Yes like a protein powder. I visit a local store there is so many brands and on every brand have write gluten free.that's way I confused which one is best any suggestions ! 
    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.

    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
