According to Clan Thompson's Celiac Food SmartList, the following root beer brands are gluten free:

A&W, regular and diet (10/06/2009)
Barq's, caffeine free, regular, and diet (3/23/2009)
Mug Root Beer, regular and diet (12/3/2009)

There are a lot more listed, but these were the brands I saw mentioned on this thread.

I'm very new to a gluten-free diet and I've discovered I had a reaction to Mugs diet root beer. Very upseting since I love it so much. I didn't realize it at first, but I had major fogginess and then an intense headache. Can anyone explain the ingredient that I should look out for in other sodas? I've read the Mugs diet RB ingredients and I can't figure it out. Thanks!!

I am not aware of any brand of root beer that contains gluten. There are other things in sodas that can cause a reaction in some people.

I have been getting glutenized and it might be the A&W I've been sipping from my husbands can. Which would also explain why he has that rash again... (he is also gluten-free).

I didn't think of the coloring. I thought it might be the vanilla. The more I think about the corn factor though the more I realize it is just not worth trying to drink. Yuck. Maybe now I can finally ditch this headache I've been brewing before it gets to full blown migraine levels.

Thanks, this thread was very helpful!

Mug says clearly at its website that it's gluten-free, and several of you have confirmed that. But what about DIET Mug root beer? I'm not finding anything specific. I had what I call a "celiac attack" 2 nights ago and trying to figure out the source. Diet Mug root beer could be the culprit. Thanks for any info.

Not likely to have gluten. Barley malt as a sweetener would add calories, forgone thing. And it pull be listed in the ingredients. I have Celiac type symptoms from some of the artificial sweeteners.

I was glutened by root bear once. I beleive it was Barks Rootbeer and one of the ingredients in it was modified food starch.

If there is anything like food starch, or starch without stating what the source of the starch is, just assume it is wheat.

I only drank about an inch from the bottle and I was sick for three days.

In the US, it is illegal to not label the wheat. If it were wheat, it would say starch ( wheat) or something like that. I'm sorry that the soda made you feel bad, but it was not gluten.

I think you have it the other way around. If you see 'modified food starch' you can assume that it has NO wheat. Wheat by law, in the US, must be listed as 'modified food startch (wheat)'.

This was not in the US. And I got very ill after drinking it so I assume that it was wheat. On lables in Canada if there is any starch - modified or not - it must be labled as to the source of the starch. Most of the ones with modified food starch are either wheat or corn here. But this was a few years ago and the source was not identified. From the reaction I had, it was gluten.

Barq's Root Beer is a US manufactured product and in 2012 it was purchased by Coke. It is listed as gluten free, currently. :)
