Although I have seen some lists that mention root beer, I have yet to discover a root beer that actually does contain gluten.

I just contacted them yesterday after reading this thread and was notified that NO slurpee flavours contain any gluten. Not surprising. But all that sugar??!! :P

No problem. It makes sense they do not contain gluten but I am a stickler for checking things...

I have heard back that the slurpees from Coca-cola are gluten, dairy and soy free. Here is what they sent me:

Coca-Cola:

Because our flavour formulations are considered a very valuable trade secret, we are unable to discuss the source of the flavours. The caramel colour in our products is derived from corn or cane sugar.

It may be helpful for the guest to know that Coca-Cola is gluten free. Also this product does not contain soy or dairy allergens as ingredients, and is produced on lines that do not process these allergens.

It is. The syrups come from different companies though and Slurpee Canada is finding out for me!

I had a slurpee the other day and it was so nice on a hot day. I felt crappy half way through because it's been years since I dumped that much sugar in my bloodstream at one time but I didn't get glutened.

Slurpees are just one of those things that are EXTREMELY unlikely to have gluten. And, as we've seen, in the U.S they don't.

After reading that ingredient list I'm not sure I want a Slurpee. :ph34r:

However...they sure do taste good on a really hot day. Which is the only kind of day we've been having lately. B)

I don't buy slurpees but love to make granitas and fruit ices which are so refreshing and far healthier because you use actual fruit and none of that extra stuff. :)

    • Weeks in and feeling no better
      Following my official diagnosis of celiac disease I went gluten free many weeks ago, but I have noticed absolutely no improvement in my health since.  I still get a plethora of muscle aches and pains almost constantly, I still feel tired, I still get lots of headaches and I still feel very foggy.  Is this normal? I see health sites suggesting some symptoms go within a few days of the diet while others take a bit longer but I have had no improvement whatsoever.  Thanks
    • Villous atrophy with negative tTG IgG/IgA, high Gliadin IgA!
      According to endoscopy report, i'm parasites free. but i have high IgG to candida albican, which may indicate recent or current infection with it. i spoke with my doctor, his reply was like forget about candida or SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth, they only appear in immunocompromised patients! 
    • Italian pasta
      Hi! You will have no problems to eat safe in Italy! Food labeling is much better in Europe  (you can fully rely on labels, they list everything). The only wheat celiacs can have is gluten free wheat starch, used in Schär products and many swedish ones. As italian cuisine is based on pasta and bread, there are a lot of gluten free options, most restaurants are aware of celiacs. All kids age 6 in Italy are screened for celiac. You will find lots of options on glutenfreeroads.com   Enjoy your trip!!
    • Continued Symptoms
      Since she is back on the charts her doctor is generally pleased with her condition. I don't know that I've made it clear enough how persistent and ongoing some of this is for her. She improved so dramatically when we made her gluten free, but there are these couple of nagging issues. I'm beginning to wonder if she has some other food sensitivity... Regarding the speech - we homeschool, will the public schools evaluate her anyway?
    • Italian pasta
      My wife and I are traveling to Italy in October and will be eating authentic food over there obviously. I'm extremely sensitive to gluten and extremely celiac. I have heard rumors that people that are celiac don't have the reaction to the wheat pasta in Italy due to the processing of the wheat is different than that of the states. I am curious how much truth to this there is and if anyone has had any experience with this issue or recommendations as to what to avoid. I've never been outside the states and am fearful that I won't be able to eat over there haha

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
