Hey everybody, I have been craving something from the pre-celiac days, (diagnosed two months ago) so I decided it wouldn't hurt to have a few glasses of Pepsi this week. I know it doesn't contain gluten but boy does it ever bother my stomoch. i don't remember it being bothersome before going gluten-free. Any ideas...I thought the gut would become less sensive after being gluten-free for a while.

If you haven't been drinking cola for awhile, It will upset your stomach. I think that is true with anybody. I hear it that cola can be used to remove paint... so you can only imagine what it's doing to your stomach.

If I don't drink it for awhile, and then have some..... I'm sick for a few days.

carbonated beverages really bother my stomach too. I don't know if it's all the sugars, or what... but I wasn't able to even tolerate soda's for the first year being gluten-free I think.

Coca-Cola will e-mail you their gluten-free list, which does include regular Coca-Cola, diet, diet and caffeine-free coke, caffeine-free coke, sprite, etc. EVERYTHING SOFTDRINK MADE BY PEPSI CO. IS gluten-free. It could be a problem with the carbonation

I used to be a Pepsi drinker but got off the cola's because basically they are empty calories. If I have one now I feel the caffeine rush and the carbonation effects the gastritis in my stomach.

Could you possibly have slight gastritis too?

I only drink diet. Now since I am gluten-free I also get sick when I drink pop, so I just don't drink it.

I usually only experience problems with dark pop. I have has sprite and orange and I haven't had problems. Maybe try a light pop.

Hey Sidore:
I thought I had read somewhere that the coloring in orange soda was not ok? Let me know if that's not right.

Ha - your topic subject made me think of a song - "all I wanted was a Pepsi!"

Anyway, colas have a lot of acid in them (as mentioned before) and carbonation which upsets my stomach, too, now that I haven't been drinking diet Cokes for the past 3 years. I did have my first cola in years last week - Blue Sky Organic Cola - and thought it was great. Doesn't have the added acid, caffeine, high fructose corn syrup. Of course they were expensive and you won't find them if you're at a party or whatever, but if you really want a good cola taste, this has it.

I did have a minor upset stomach after the first one I had (on an empty stomach) but I've had two others with meals and was fine. I think it was the carbonation on an empty stomach.

Thanks everyone for your replies. I never thought of the carbonation being the culprit! I guess I'll only have a glass of Pepsi when I really, really, want it!

Ha-ha Nini! I always laugh when I see your avitar - my best friend has total Cornholio fits from time to time and is the funniest thing to see ever.

I knew *someone* would know that reference... :)

I'm so glad I could make y'all laugh!!!!

I'm just one of those kids that was a misfit punk and now I'm a gr'up (grownup) with a husband and a kid... I try to maintain my "attitude" though, it keeps me young! (considering that I'll be 36 in a few weeks ;)
