I am just wondering if any other super sensitives react to sodas. At first I thought it was the high fructose corn syrup so I bought Pepsi Throwback with sugar. Whenever I drink either one, I get cramps and diarrhea. I'm NOT in any way trying to start a caramel color debate but could this bother a super sensitive?

Thanks

I'm not so sure I would be someone to hear from because I am not sure how sensitive I actually am since I basically avoid all processed foods, but I do have a big problem with soda.

Do you only react to dark sodas or do you have problems with sodas like Sprite too?

Can you handle sugar in other things?

The reason I'm asking is that I used to be able to drink soda all the time, Pepsi was my favorite, but then I started getting bad cramps and it got progressively worse so I stopped with the HFCS, then I tried the one with sugar and still couldn't tolerate it, then I tried Sprite and that hurt too. I finally gave up trying after I spent time very sick from muffins that I made with white sugar, personally I can't tolerate the sugar so perhaps that is a problem with the soda for you...

I hope that you figure out what the problem is though.

Thanks. I can't tolerate any of them either. Clear soda and dark sodas both make me feel badly. I was recently glutened by some bacon and the D just will not stop. The only other 2 new things that I have added in months is Pepsi and Simply Apple Juice. I guess I am off sodas now...Another thing bites the dust. I guess i'll dig out my Mr. Coffee Iced Tea maker tomorrow.

Gosh...sometimes I just wish that our bodies came with a do not eat list! This trial and error and it should be safe stuff is so tiring. I really hope you get to feeling better soon!

Thanks! I know and I agree, it is so tiring especially when a full blown glutening comes on and you have no idea what is was from.

You might try Oogave soda if you can find it. It's sweetened with agave syrup and tasted pretty good. I don't drink it anymore because it has corn (citric acid) but it should be safe for super sensitives. I would call the company just to make sure.

I have had issues with sweetened drinks for 20 years. I could never figure it out. I thought it was HFCs acid etc. diet sodas are fine for me. Fruit juice and sweet wine hurts. Mixed drinks with sweet mixers hurt. I do not know what the issue is either. Now that I am gluten free, I still have the same problem. I guess it is better to avoid such drinks, but it sure is frustrating. I thought I was the only one with this issue.

I thought I was fine with Mexican coke since it doesn't have HFCS (I react to corn). Sadly, I'm not, and I don't know exactly what it is that I react to in it. :angry:

You could make your own sodas:

This is a SUPER SCARY thought :ph34r:
For as much of a trial that this has been, I think I am glad than when I started I did not know the WHOLE list . It would have completely FREAKED ME OUT !!!!!.
Even now it freaks me out some days ,some days not so much :)

It could be benzoates.
Benzoates are a preservative often used in sodas and bottled drinks and bottled condiments. I can't handle it at all. My DH reacts to Benzoates, which, according to experimentation and research is very common for those who are sensitive to salicylates. Even fruit juices often have sodium benzoate added to them. I won't buy anything with it in the ingredients list. I wonder how many are reacting to that? It would be interesting to know.

That's very true and I think I finally am getting to where I'm not completely terrified of getting sick from food, but if I would have known at the beginning I would have been very overwhelmed.

I'm coming to this late. I didn't see this before. As a super sensitive, I do react to sodas. I thought it was the corn syrup. While I don't react to corn on the cob, I do tend to react to processed corn products. I don't react to my store brand soda water so I mix that up with juice to make my own "soda", kind of like what Jestgar recommended.

I bought a Sodastream maker and have made my own strawberry soda. Thanks everyone. No corn and it tastes great.
