Much to my suprise I found out that all coffee is not gluten free, if you want to be sure your coffee is gluten free, grind your own coffee beans with your own grinder.

Please explain what coffee you are talking about as most all regular coffee is gluten free.

No need to scare new people.

Are you talking about instant coffee? I know I read recently that some of that was not gluten free.

Please detail the coffees you've found that aren't gluten-free. We know that virtually all ARE gluten-free, but if some aren't it would be helpful to let people know which ones.

Every source that I am aware of lists coffee, including instant coffee, as being gluten-free. Please provide the specifics to support your statement.

I have never found a coffee that contains gluten though I have only been looking recently and at standard supermarkets and coffee places. I'd love to know where/from whom you got the info.

Here's a thread with a response from Millstone about their flavored coffee's possibly having gluten:
http://www.celiac.co...lavored-coffee/

This thread talks about CC and coffee: http://www.celiac.co...-coffee-issues/

And I know that I stopped drinking coffee and switched to tea after about 2 months of gluten-free, as I was having gluten type reactions, but not drinking flavored coffee. I think it's too easy for the flavored and non-flavored to 'co-mingle'. I read multiple threads on here about coffee, and couldn't be sure (unless I perhaps switched to organic and always ground it myself -- not in the budget!), so I decided to drink it rarely instead of daily.

Flavored coffee could possibly (although not likely) have gluten in the flavor. The principal source of gluten in flavoring is barley malt, as a sweetener. It is an expensive ingredient, so it is very rarely hidden.

Coffee is just simply not a major concern for CC.

I want other Celiacs to know that Gevalia Coffee is NOT gluten free. I have been getting sick after drinking Gevalia's Traditional Roast coffee, but I thought it had to be my imagination. I contacted the company just in case. Here is their reply:

We apologize for your inconvenience. Please be advised that ALL of our products have a trace of gluten.

That's enough to scare me just a little bit.

I thought this was strange, so I emailed Gevalia. I got the same response. I'm going to email to ask if they are listing it in the ingredients

Hmm...maybe this explains it. I think this is from 2009.

I guess the question should be the source of the gluten??

They answered my first email within a few minutes. But haven't answered the one asking what it is and if its clearly labelled.

I'm wondering if "Our coffees contain a trace of Gluten" is Swedish for CYA. :)

Maybe so. I could see it coming from the flavored stuff...perhaps the plain gets cc'd. Or maybe it's corn. Who knows. But I'd like to know since coffee is the one thing I don't screen when out (aside from not ordering froofy drinks or flavored).
