What's The Deal With Soft Drinks?
0

6 posts in this topic

I am kind of skeptical of dark-colored soft drinks because I've been doing a lot of reading on "caramel coloring" and I'm finding people are questioning whether or not Coke's caramel coloring is consistently gluten free. I might be mistaken because I recently found out I have problems with soy, but I think Pibb, Dr. Pepper, Coke, and other soft drinks make me not feel so good. I don't know if it would be the caramel coloring or the carbonation messing up my digestive system. What do you guys think?

Coke and Dr. Pepper are gluten-free, not sure about Pibb. On occasion we have had coke, pepsi, mtn dew, dr. pepper, etc -- I also checked the generic brand from Albertson's "chill" to save some money on root beer for my kids...they responded quickly that all their sodas are gluten-free.

And in Canada, too. The Canadian Celiac Association considers caramel color to be safe regardless of the source to the starch from which it was made.

The bottom line really is that if it bothers you avoid it. I know it is nice to really know why something doesn't sit well but sometimes we just don't know. I really like pepsi but I end up sick if I drink more than one so I usually stick with 7up unless I have a real need for the caffiene. All sodas especially the ones made with high fructose corn syrup have a great deal of sugar, most have a daily allowance in one 16 oz bottle. I find mixing a fruit juice with a bit of plain soda water 1/4 to 3/4 to be very refreshing and the fruit juice gives at least a small amount of vitamin C.

    • Thanks.  This is very helpful.  Our first post diagnosis grocery store trip took several hours, just trying to read labels to make sure everything is safe.   Our son loves bread and this going to be the hardest part. 
    • i would agree with most of your assessment but overall the popular chefs are very aware. Ed Kenny at Town did have  gluten-free options on the menu.  Mavro's will fix something special given advance notice but its expensive.  excellent but very expensive.  Alan Wong is very aware and will have his staff prepare something as well.  We did find many options at both Oahu  whole foods -- mostly  with tofu. the only thing  there is to be aware of cross contamination with things  next to it.  they make a great gluten-free southwestern tofo dish which is great but not if its sitting next to anything with gluten. Its not whole foods but people use the smae  spoons and tongs i found more at   down to earth in peal city than by  University ave  
    • Hi,  I'm in KOna but my kaiser doctor just retired  who was pretty good about it. I dont know of a specialist here  but most of hte kaiser docs wil test you if thats when you need to talk to them about. good luck  
    • Yes.  And wouldn't it have been nice if your doctor had tested you for Celiac disease before you went gluten free? Then you would know if your issues are Celiac or not.  That would help you know how careful you need to be, what other illnesses and problems to look for, whether you might be passing a genetic disease on to your children, if you should look for another cause of your symptoms, etc  
    • I would be very careful in giving this kind of advice, she is in an advanced stage. I was there and one additional symptom that I was getting was a strong urge to commit suicide so eating gluten for three months might not be the way to go for some people. If a gluten free diet stop the problems them gluten is the problem or a least part of it. I eliminated MSG from my diet because I notice that the common denominator for some products that affected my well being was MSG. I eliminated oats because I notice that I would get canker sores every time I ate it. Wheat is what affect my brain the most, irritability gets uncontrollable, my mental capacity greatly diminish, rash in my arms appear, can't sleep,etc. Barley makes my stomach groan, and constipated. Will try testing how Rye affect me some later time.
