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:

This thread talks about CC and coffee:

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.

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

http://www.glutenfreeliving.com/Browse/file/GFLwinter09plate.pdf

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).

Why don't you email or call and see what they tell you. we can see if they are consistant or maybe tell one of us something else. They may be wondering why all the interest in gluten.

Once again, it might be different from country to country, but some of the flavoured coffees have gluten in them, but they are clearly labelled as containing gluten, or being produced in the same place as other products containing gluten. The regular coffees are fine, and it's those mixes that are not suitable where you just add water and they already have the milk in them and are sweetened. Not sure if you get them over there, or know what I'm talking about. Being vegan I wouldn't use them anyway, but have taken notice of pretty much everything just to keep it in mind what's safe and what isn't.

It was thier US website. It had products for sale in the US. There was no way, that I could find, to see the ingredients of the plain or flavored coffees before you ordered them.

All of the corn allergy forums warn that there is corn in coffee. I don't know WHY there should be corn in coffee, but I think they are talking about something in the roasting process.

I think if you grind your coffee in the grinders at the grocery store there might be a chance of CC. But grinding it at home would solve that problem and it'll taste better too. (Helps to wake you up in the morning when that noisy grinder starts humming too.)

Did any of you know that you can roast your own coffee in a popcorn popper? It has to be one that "spins" as it pops. It'll make your whole house smell good too. You can order beans online, and if you love coffee as much as I do (It is my favorite ingestible thing in the world.) I reccommend you start with Costa Rican beans. They aren't nearly as expensive as some of the other types like Jamaican Blue Mountain or Kona, but oh my, they are SO good!

We're getting a pop corn maker for Christmas (in the shape of a dinosaur, it's adorable) so that's really good to know.

Okay, I called Gevalia. If anyone else calls just press 1.

Talked with a nice lady that answered "no" to my question "Do Gevalia coffees contain wheat, barley, or rye gluten"?

I then explained that a friend had sent a request through the website asking if their coffees were gluten-free and received a response they contain trace gluten. I then explained the article from 2009 about corn gluten.

She then checked somewhere else (including reading a box of coffee to see what it said) and came back with the response that the FLAVORED coffees contain gluten, but she didn't know what type of gluten.

She is having the question bumped up and someone is supposed to call me tomorrow.

Asked if the gluten is listed and how to see the ingredients before we bought them as I didn't see any on the website. Looking at this response, I'm guessing that the trace of gluten won't hurt our diabetes? they appear really clueless. It does worry me if the coffee does contain gluten, how would you know when you ordered that it wasn't like all other coffee? At this rate, we will have to report them to the FDA for undeclared gluten.

This is the first I've heard of any black coffee containing gluten, but some instant flavored coffees do contain wheat, for example some flavors in the Maxwell House International tins. Whenever I buy anything flavored, I just make sure to read the label like I do with any other food.

      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it.

Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination.

Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
