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

I hadn't heard of that before. I just checked it out. Are you O.K. with their flavors?

No, not at all. I can't have any of their flavors. I called and spoke with them before I bought it. You can make your own flavors. You can use juice or lemon/lime sugar. I made strawberry soda out of strawberries and sugar which I made a simple syrup out of. If you do a search online, there are a bunch of recipes that we can have. (you and I have very similar issues as far as everything has to be from scratch made my us)

Except I had problems finding a sugar I could tolerate. Do you use anything special? I have only been able to find one very expensive honey.

I just use C&H white sugar. You could use anything that you want. Anything that is sweet will work. Honey or juice would work.

Maybe you could use stevia instead of sugar? I use stevia in herbal teas and it is just fine for a sweetner IMHO.

I react to sodas but with me I am pretty sure it is the caffeine and not any gluten or corn syrup issue. I can handle caffeine better now that I am off soy, grapes, and alcohol though. I am actually trying caffeine a little lately and not having a problem so far.

My son 7yo and I both are celiac. My older son wanted me to stop at tacobell and get an application for work. So I thought I'd just get us all a drink. (I'm very strict to stay away from gluten but still new at it). Within 15 min cramps and D hit me. And about 5min later it hit my son who was curled up on floor crying with belly aches. My question ...is there gluten in the glues of the cups? Cross contamination? Since it was both of us I'd think it was gluten and not other allergies.

I'm a very newly diagnosed celiac, and as such I'm still not sure what I'm supposed to feel like, or what being glutened feels like, and I myself had never noticed any particular reaction if I ate a lot of bread or pasta etc. before being diagnosed. That said, a few years ago when I started feeling bloated the majority of the time, I thought I noticed that too much sugar and coffee/caffeine (pop included in both of these) made me feel extra bloated. Cutting out sweets and coffee helped quite a lot then, and now, even though I am gluten free, I still notice it if I have coffee or have too much sugar. I hear that being a gluten-eating celiac can really screw up your intestinal flora, (and since I had tried parasite cleanses that didn't make me feel better years ago too even though I did see what could have been parts of parasites my first time around trying them), I'm thinking that that's my reason I have such a noticeable reaction to sugar at least.
And from what I hear, it might be quite awhile before my intestines and what lives in them sorts themselves out.

As to if having a messed up gut flora which causes things like bloating to certain gluten-free foods goes, it's up in the air as to how harmful it might actually be. I mean, there's all types of recent research out there linking what bacteria lives in your intestines to various illnesses, (most striking one I heard of was that certain gut bacteria have been linked to autism in a population subset), but maybe the pop isn't doing anything permanent or harmful beyond the highly unpleasant immediate effects.

In any case, I wouldn't blame gluten being in supposed gluten-free products if you react to that product, and I wouldn't necessarily cut out a food from your diet completely because of bad reactions to it at one point in your life, especially if it's something you really like.

It can be that the person who filled the ice machine may have not washed their hands before doing so. If I get a fast food soda (not that often) I don't put any ice in it and just get a small size.

Uhm, btw, maybe Taco Bell is not going to be an optimum workplace for you.... hope that was for your older son. If he's driving your car there, you'd better keep that steering wheel cleaned off....

I drink no soda. My body was reacting to certain additives in foods and soda is loaded. I actually stopped drinking soda over 4 year ago after 30 years of drinking Dr Pepper daily, 1-3 cans. It was then I had my first signs that something was wrong and I was trying to correct what I wasn't aware of and started eliminated processed foods. I have to be careful with sugar intake as well so this was one that just had to go.

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

Yes. After trying mayny different things, I have come to realize it's the carmel coloring in soda. Yes, it causes me leg cramps and makes me hurt almost all over. I am so senitive now that diet soda is a no go too. Sure do miss a diet Pepsi.

That does not mean there is gluten in the soda. You can certainly react to an ingredient.

People sometime have issues with caramel color, not gluten but other it could be from other sources.

It doesn't look to me like she said that it was gluten. She just said that she reacts to carmel coloring.

That could be the reason for a reaction to carmel color.
