Have You Heard Of The Problem With Coffee For Us?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have noticed for the past few weeks that I am having trouble with coffee…has anyone else ever heard that celiacs often have trouble with coffee - it has properties that bring on the same response we might have to gluten. Has anyone else experienced this?

Hi Missy, and Welcome to the Forum  :)

 

There is no gluten in coffee, however you need to check flavoring or creams as they may.  For some coffee can be a natural laxative.  There are always a very small minority that coffee doesn't sit well with but If you have had no problem in the past then you should be fine with it.  If you are newly diagnosed then your gut may be healing and coffee may aggravate it for a little bit.

 

Good Luck to you,

 

Colleen

Coffee is hard on the stomach (gastritis, etc) for many people - Celiac or not.  I do bet if I have a little milk with mine - seems to cut the acidity of the coffee.

 

I went to the International Celiac Disease Symposium in Sept - all the food served was gluten free.  We went through gallons of coffee every day!  :D

I drink coffee and I have problems with all sorts of other things.  Coffee has been found to be contaminated with gluten containing materials on occasion.  http://www.foodfraud.org/search/site?search_api_views_fulltext=coffee

 

I buy whole beans to avoid that possibility.

 

Hi Steph, Thanks for that information.  It was you who I was thinking about when I said "a small minority", I just couldn't remember the specifics.

I have a problem with caffeine in general, but it started before I was diagnosed.  I think it was just upsetting my damaged gut.  I can drink tea now, but coffee…not so much, yet.  I read somewhere that instant coffee labels should be read, especially flavored instant coffees.  Try drinking very weak decaf for a bit.

I drink Folger's and I drink Dunkin' Donuts. Every day. Lots of it. I start my morning with it on an empty stomach. No problems whatsoever.

Chicago is beautiful in the fall.
