    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

I have recently been experiencing bloating and gas after drinking tea. Could there be a very tiny microscopic amount of gluten in tea that causes this???

I think you would have to let us know what kind of tea you're drinking. Some tea probably does contain gluten and others do not. Did you look into this before drinking it? Also, it may not be gluten related at all. Maybe the tea just doesnt agree with you right now.

Some flavored or herbal teas do contain gluten--another thing to consider is that caffeine is very irritating to our systems as we are healing. I have found that I don't do well with tea anymore--I'll probably try it again but not for at least 6 months.

In this cold weather it is just too tempting for me not to drink something hot. So, I make my tea (green, pau d'arco, etc.) extra weak. Like 1 teabag for every 4 - 6 cups of water. This way I can at least still enjoy the flavor and keep my hands warm. I can only have 1 or two cups like this too. But for me, moderation is better than abstaning. Marcia

Some companies seal their tea bags with wheat paste. Celestial Seasonings has a gluten free disclaimer on their boxes- some of them say 'may contain gluten', but most of them say 'gluten free'.
