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.

"Thank you for your e-mail.

There's more on Gevalia coffee here. Other brands are mentioned that are gluten-free.

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.

BTW Gevalia hasn't ever called back. Or if they did, no message.

They never emailed me back after the stupid response about the amount of gluten being suitable for diabetics. Any company that doesn't known the difference between gluten and glucose is scary for anyone consuming these products.

The coffee bean is gluten-free without any doubt. While it is possible that the flavor contains hidden gluten as malted barley, it is not likely. Barley malt is expensive, so rather than hide it, manufacturers will usually highlight it.

I don't like flavor in my coffee, so this is not so much of a concern for me. But I do drink plain coffee all the time, and have never had an issue with it.

If a company says "may contain traces of gluten" AND someone is reporting a reaction, that's enough for me to choose another brand.

Thanks for the information!
