Can you handle coffee? Once I start, it kicks start my repeated runs to the bathroom too. Maybe I'm crazy, but is it just the caffiene or is there hidden gluten in here too?!

What kind of coffee are you drinking? According to my list, the following coffee's are gluten-free:

Folgers

Maxwell House

Sanka

Taster's choice

It could be the warmth of the coffee that makes you go or it could be the creamer (dairy). Just a thought.

What coffees are NOT gluten-free? :blink: I had thought that we only had to stay away from flavored coffees (which I'm doing.) Have I been accidentally zapping myself every morning? :o

I personally have not been able to handle coffee, even the gluten-free ones with 100% dairy free creamer. I don't know what it is in coffee that doesn't agree with me. I am able to take headache pills with added caffeine, so I doubt that the caffeine is the problem...

If you can't handle coffee it's something other than gluten. In three years, the only coffee I've EVER found not gluten-free are a couple of ones at Starbucks where they actually add brownies or something as they mix it. Plain unflavored coffee is absolutely unquestionably gluten-free.

;) i agree with richard--i had diarrhea for years and years and now that i am gluten-free, i am still very much a coffee drinker--as i have posted before--the one coffee that made me sick was a hazelnut coffee that i got at a gas station/convience store--i use half & half creamer at work cause our coffee is so bitter, but i have read the ingreds on the box and there is nothing in them that can hurt us--so i agree--your problem with coffee may be something other then celiacs---please dont take my coffee away :P deb

Actually, I know alot of people that will drink coffee to "kick start" there bowels. In fact a joke is that its a natural laxative. So there has been times prior to recently that it would give me the urge to go.

However, I don't really know what brand it is I drink here at the office. In fact its something cheap and generic because that's all they'll buy. Out of desperation for a pick me up I was drinking it and it'll cause me to run to the restroom.

At home, we always have Folgers, and I never suffer from that.

Strange.. but thanks for everyone's input. I think I'll stick to water! :blink:

Does anyone know if Gevalia flavored coffees are gluten-free?? They are the only ones I drink, and only once a week or so.

Hello all,

i can't drink coffee either. But with me my old belly pain and the pain (at the same time) in the left of my foreheadbone starts again. Like i had it in the last days of my glutenlife. It can't be the warmth of the liquid either, because i add cold milk. In fact there is mostly milk in it, because i don't like the pure coffee taste. It's like 1/4 coffee and 3/4 milk or sometimes even less coffee.

It can't be the milk either, because I drink it together with the Nestle cocoa powder (which also is on the glutenfree list) and i don't have problems with that. Next i check the sugar and i didn't have problems with the sugar either. So i think it's the coffee. We always drink the Folgers coffee, which is supposed to be glutenfree. Last time my pain was so bad, i had to stay in bed all day. I don't know what it is in the coffee that bothers me, but i won't drink any coffee anymore. Whatever it is, it must be in pepsi, too. Cause i just drank a glass as i'm writing this here and i have my old foreheadbonepain again. Is coffein also in pepsi?

Lots of greetings, Stef

Gluten is added to some coffee. It is used to counter act some of the bitterness of the beans. Some people use a piece of bread to clean the grinders, takes the oil residue off the blades. I would avoid the coffees that say "special blended for a smooth rich flavor"

I can only drink a small amount of coffee - I am down to 1 1/2 cups of half-caf in the morning only. Otherwise, I get a "sour" stomach, bathroom problems, etc. I always assumed it was the acid. It got worse after GERD. I also must eat with my coffee or it is just as bad as if I had drank a full pot, which I used to do a LOT.

Stef,

Too much caffeine (which is in sodas unless otherwise noted such a Pepsi) can cause headaches. Hav eyou tried elminating all caffeine from your diet? That might be the source! Worth a shot!

    • Washing Dishes
      Gluten is a very sticky protein that cannot be removed easily. Non porous items can be washed safely and effectively, being very careful to throughly rinse, use a dedicated sponge/washcloth to wash. If washed by hand wash and rinse under hot running water not in a sink of water if you don't have a dedicated gluten free kitchen. My kitchen is totally gluten free and I still rinse under running water. I attempted to use the dishwasher for the first time yesterday and I feel like I've been glutened so I'm not sure if it's safe or not. There was no gluten containing dishes in it, but it's a rental house so God knows how the previous tenants used it and whether there may be any lingering gluten in it. I also have other issues that cause a lot of the same problems so I'm going to keep trying to use it for a few days and see if I continue to feel glutened or not. As far as counter tops, sinks etc, any non porous surfaces can be wiped clean, but it takes multiple wipe downs with multiple sponges. Thoroughly wipe down and rinse out the sink to rid it off any lose gluten particles. The same thing I did when first going gluten free. Only the kitchen I had then had laminated counter tops that were all scratched up. There is no getting gluten out of those kind of counter tops or cracks around the sink, etc. The ONLY way to possibly destroy/remove gluten from surfaces it's stuck in is to heat it above temperatures most things cannot tolerate and not all ovens can reach. You're looking at like 600°-700° F for a minimum of 30 min. So some stuff can be effectively cleaned in the self cleaning mode of an oven if it has one. Most cookware and utensils cannot tolerate those temperatures though and it's impossible to heat counters and other items to that temperature. Therefore being in a blended house is very risky if not done right. When I went gluten free everyone in my house went gluten free. Except the fish, you can't find gluten free fish food. My husband who shouldn't eat gluten anyway is gluten free and all our animals are on a grain free diet. Even my snake is gluten free since I breed my own feeder mice and feed them a gluten free organic diet. 
    • to biopsy or not?
      A small suggestion........for banana bread, try the King Arthur gluten free banana bread mix.  Yeah, I know......it's a mix but sometimes, time is short and a mix works well.  My husband and I were shocked at how good this is!  it rose up high and beautiful in the oven and has a really good banana flavor to it.  Really....give it a try.  It is so easy to make also! http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/gluten-free-banana-bread   The ATK cookbook is a keeper for every Celiac!
    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      Yup.....what she said!  In non-porous materials such as stainless steel or aluminum pans, a good washing is all you need to make the pan safe to use.
    • Hawaiian-style BBQ Shrimp (Gluten-Free)
      Mayonnaise is the key to this recipe, which delivers tasty, tangy, golden grilled shrimp. View the full article
    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      I wouldn't be afraid to use a stainless steel pot that other things had been cooked in AS LONG AS YOU WASH THEM VERY WELL before making her food.

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
