It cannot be unequivocally stated that coke is gluten free. The excerpt below cites a reply from Coke Customer Service to an inquiry...

The FDA has no definition of what is "Gluten-free" and everyone has different sensitivities. Medical testing has stated that anything over 20ppm can trigger sensitivities in some Celiacs and I can say that Coke bothers me.


Additionally, we can tell you that all of our other products meet Codex's definition of gluten-free, which is currently less than 200 ppm (parts per million) (0.02%) gluten. Codex is in the process of reviewing this standard and we are monitoring the progress closely. At this time the U.S. Food and Drug Administration does not have a regulatory
definition of gluten-free.

We can assure you that the exact amount of gluten in all these other products is very low - perhaps even zero. Some minor ingredients in these products are manufactured from plants that gluten-sensitive people could react to, so we are unable to state categorically that they are totally gluten-free even though they may have undetectable levels of gluten in them. The Codex guideline provides a very low threshold for gluten content. However, extremely gluten-sensitive individuals should discuss consumption of these products with their health care provider.

We hope this information is helpful. If you have additional questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.

Just wanted to say I have problems with Coke also but not with the clear stuff like 7up. It does seem to be a clear gluten reaction so I steer clear but many do not have an issue. The best way for someone to tell if they do have a problem is the same as with any suspect food. Don't consume any for a couple of weeks then add in one or two a day for a week and look to see if you react. Of course you need to consume only for sure safe food when you do this to avoid confusion.

I've been gluten free for 4 months now, after being diagnosed with celiac disease. This weekend I drank sprite for the first time in several months. I had a horrible reaction to it - rash, gas, bloating, sick stomach. I will be avoiding sprite. My doctor did say I am very sensitive to gluten - because of the rashes and hives that show up minutes after ingesting gluten. If you are very sensitive, be very careful. Anyone who has ever been glutened will know it is not a fun way to spend a holiday weekend. :lol:
