I've been asked what I want for a gift and it was suggested that I would enjoy a Keurig. I've never been brave enough to try it when I see them out in public... because I don't know what is gluten free. Are there alot of gluten free k-cups...coffees and teas? Is it worth it?

I just sent them a message on their website asking about gluten content because I was thinking of getting my husband a brewer for Christmas and I might want to sneak something in there for me once in a while. Maybe if enough people ask about availability of gluten-free products, it will influence their offerings.

If I don't hear back positively, I will get a pot that uses regular coffee pods and buy the machine to make your own pods so I know exactly what's in them.

I have a Keurig, and I've not been glutened by any of the K-cups. But then, I rarely drink anything other than really dark roasts - no flavored coffees, no tea, no hot chocolate.

If you also get the "My K-Cup" you can put your own coffee grounds in it and run it through the machine. Like cbear said, that way you know exactly what you're getting.

OK, I really want one now. At the bank they had one and I had a blazin headache, so I googled green mountain coffee. I found out (unley're fibbin, that all the flavors are gluten free...and had my FIRST cup of coffee in 6 months. I didn't use creamer because I didn't know if it was dairy and gluten free...no label. But even black with some sugar, it was wonderful, fabulous, superDEEduper!

I use the Green Mountain brand flavored K-cups at work and have had no problems. I e-mailed them a couple months ago and they replied that all their flavors are gluten free. Enjoy!

Interesting discussion but sorry I am a little late in the game. THought you'd be interested in knowing, from keurig's own website (http://www.keurig-k-cups.com/):

Keurig is a subsidiary of Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc, but has forged partnerships with a number of well-known and gourmet coffee roasters, tea makers and other beverage makers and created K-Cup versions of their products, including Diedrich Coffee, Gloria Jean’s, Van Houtte, Twinings, Tullys, Emeril’s and Bellacinao. All of the coffees offered are gluten and gluten by-product free, and many of these companies also provide fair-trade and organic varieties of their beverages. Van Houtte, Timothy’s, and Emeril’s are among the dozens included in the list.

I don't know what relationship www.keurig-k-cups.com has to Keurig, but that is definitely not the official site. Keurig (www.keurig.com) does answer a gluten question on their FAQ page concerning coffee but does not mention tea at all:

Do any of your K-Cups contain gluten?
Answer
All of the coffees offered in K-Cups are gluten and gluten byproduct-free. The Café Escapes French Vanilla Café-au-Lait Café Escapes contains small amounts of wheat.

For additional nutritional information on a particular K-Cup, we suggest you contact the Roaster directly.

You can get to this page via this link:

Does anybody know if it is safe for a celiac to use a Keurig that might run gluten-containing k-cups as well? It seems to me that the possibility for cross-contamination is definitely there...

I have found on all of the Nestle Coffee Mate non-dairy creamer, the specific phrase gluten free. (I am not informed about dairy so I dont' know if that would be safe or not.)

Hmmm... I have one and had not considered that the tea I make my husband may cross-contaminate me.
The way the machine works, it makes a hole in the k-cup before sending water through it. i guess there is a slight possibility a grain of tea or coffee could be left on the spike? I need to look closer. I do know that some coffee grains escape to the bottom of the area where I place my k-cup....
I considered this an easy to clean machine and no-worries when gluten-free, but now I must look into further. :(
I'm only going into day 6 gluten-free and it's hard to think I might could get cross-contaminated by one more thing! :unsure:

I've had a Keurig machine since last winter and I love it! I know for sure that VanHoutte French Vanilla is gluten-free, that's my favorite and I have it everyday. I emailed the company to ask. If you are unsure you can always email/call the companies that make the coffees. I have done that a few times and they've always sent a reply (and 99% have said they are gluten-free)

I don't think that the website the last poster cited was the correct site. I looked on www.keurig.com which I believe is their official site. In the customer service FAQ's they provide the following response for coffee. There is no information regarding the tea k-cups. I will probably write the company about this and if I get an answer I will post it here as well.

Question
Do any of your K-Cups contain gluten?

Answer
All of the coffees offered in K-Cups are gluten and gluten byproduct-free. The Café Escapes French Vanilla Café-au-Lait Café Escapes contains small amounts of wheat.

yeah, and I'm gussing my dh's tea is probably gluten-free, but I should check to be certain.

So does this mean that it's unnecessary to check with the individual roasters? Every single KCUP made is gluten-free???(with the exception of the one listed)

If you keep reading down it does mention the tea cups under the "allergens" post underneath the gluten one.
