Lattes And Cappuccino

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I had a cappuccino yesterday after dinner and within an hour I was having extreme stomach pains. It felt much like a glutening, curled up in a ball in pain.

Anyone have problems with espresso? I don't usually drink them and I'm fine with my daily cup of coffee but lately my hubby and I go and get an afternoon latte or cappuccino. I've noticed my stomach hurting a little bit when I drink them, but yesterday was horrible, bloating too. I even had chills with it and this morning I woke up with a migraine. These are glutening symptoms for me but espresso doesn't contain gluten and it was not flavored. Regardless I'm giving them up but wondering what the heck got me, why was my reaction so much worse :-/

Lattes have a lot of milk. Maybe that is the issue?

If you're getting them while out, they could have somehow cc'd the milk (heated, frothed milk).

Try one at home.

Ok, the "neck pain thing" is the bane of my existence, and my best advice is...get a massage!

 

It's muscle weakness and it will spark up for no reason.

 

But if I have it all week...and it is WORSE, something is going on.

 

Check everything you are eating for CC.

 

IMHO, the cappuccino is not the culprit.

The chills sounds more like you are fighting an impending infection.  I have on a few occasions ordered a pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks without event.  However, its a CC gamble so as a general rule, I don't really order frothy drinks "out".  I do have a Keurig Vue that I will use to make cappuccino/latte.

 

As mentioned before, you could be reacting to the dairy…  There are technically no issue with the coffee element but for some people it does ramp up your gut and intestines…  I have a friends that drinks coffee to stay regular!  

 

Good luck.

Cross contamination!!!! At Starbucks they use the same mini vacuum for the pastry display as they use for the coffee grinder! It deposits crumbs into the coffee grinder and then into your coffee!

This can happen anywhere.

I think its either cc or the milk. I use lactose free milk in my cereal but lately I've been drinking the holiday drinks at Starbucks. Peppermint mochas and the lattes. Now today I have the "D" so something is going on :-(

I probably got too lax during the Holidays and wasn't paying enough attention to what I'm eating.

 

edited to add: I don't think it's cc from Starbucks, I often have a starbucks and we get coffee there a lot as well. I think I got cc'd during Christmas dinner or something

GretaJane, Please provide a credible source for this statement.  

 

Otherwise the reply should not be given any credibility as being true or factual.

 

Thank you,

If you usually drink lactose free milk - then it was probably an issue with all the milk in the lattes. They are mostly milk.

Yes, thank you for that. I would like to know the source of this idea as well. GretaJane, do you have a history of working at Starbucks, maybe? I've spent many years working in coffee shops, and never would have used a vacuum cleaner of any kind to get coffee grounds out of a pot.

However, I DO know that we often interchanged pumps for syrups, using the caramel one that had been washed and switching it to the chocolate one, for example. Washing gets most of the syrup out of the pump, but not all. That could be a source of cross contamination, but it's a risk that I typically take when I go out. Ain't nobody taking my Starbucks away from me! It's the one treat I am allowed to have when I go out anywhere!

    Celiac.com 06/22/2018 - The rise of food allergies means that many people are avoiding gluten in recent times. In fact, the number of Americans who have stopped eating gluten has tripled in eight years between 2009 and 2017.
    Whatever your rationale for avoiding gluten, whether its celiac disease, a sensitivity to the protein, or any other reason, it can be really hard to find suitable places to eat out. When you’re on holiday in a new and unknown environment, this can be near impossible. As awareness of celiac disease grows around the world, however, more and more cities are opening their doors to gluten-free lifestyles, none more so than the 10 locations on the list below.
    Perhaps unsurprisingly, the U.S is a hotbed of gluten-free options, with four cities making the top 10, as well as the Hawaiian island of Maui. Chicago, in particular, is a real haven of gluten-free fare, with 240 coeliac-safe eateries throughout this huge city. The super hip city of Portland also ranks highly on this list, with the capital of counterculture rich in gluten-free cuisine, with San Francisco and Denver also included. Outside of the states, several prominent European capitals also rank very highly on the list, including Prague, the picturesque and historic capital of the Czech Republic, which boasts the best-reviewed restaurants on this list.
    The Irish capital of Dublin, meanwhile, has the most gluten-free establishments, with a huge 330 to choose from, while Amsterdam and Barcelona also feature prominently thanks to their variety of top-notch gluten-free fodder.
    Finally, a special mention must go to Auckland, the sole representative of Australasia in this list, with the largest city in New Zealand rounding out the top 10 thanks to its 180 coeliacsafe eateries.
    The full top ten gluten-free cities are shown in the graphic below:

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.

    Celiac.com 06/19/2018 - Could baking soda help reduce the inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease? Scientists at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University say that a daily dose of baking soda may in fact help reduce inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease.
    Those scientists recently gathered some of the first evidence to show that cheap, over-the-counter antacids can prompt the spleen to promote an anti-inflammatory environment that could be helpful in combating inflammatory disease.
    A type of cell called mesothelial cells line our body cavities, like the digestive tract. They have little fingers, called microvilli, that sense the environment, and warn the organs they cover that there is an invader and an immune response is needed.
    The team’s data shows that when rats or healthy people drink a solution of baking soda, the stomach makes more acid, which causes mesothelial cells on the outside of the spleen to tell the spleen to go easy on the immune response.  "It's most likely a hamburger not a bacterial infection," is basically the message, says Dr. Paul O'Connor, renal physiologist in the MCG Department of Physiology at Augusta University and the study's corresponding author.
    That message, which is transmitted with help from a chemical messenger called acetylcholine, seems to encourage the gut to shift against inflammation, say the scientists.
    In patients who drank water with baking soda for two weeks, immune cells called macrophages, shifted from primarily those that promote inflammation, called M1, to those that reduce it, called M2. "The shift from inflammatory to an anti-inflammatory profile is happening everywhere," O'Connor says. "We saw it in the kidneys, we saw it in the spleen, now we see it in the peripheral blood."
    O'Connor hopes drinking baking soda can one day produce similar results for people with autoimmune disease. "You are not really turning anything off or on, you are just pushing it toward one side by giving an anti-inflammatory stimulus," he says, in this case, away from harmful inflammation. "It's potentially a really safe way to treat inflammatory disease."
    The research was funded by the National Institutes of Health.
