So, I had my first cup of Gevalia traditional blend coffee this morning. Just one cup. It tasted great.

I called Gevalia this morning just to check and they told me ALL of their coffees have a TRACE of gluten in them.

Wow.

Hope I don't vomit. :rolleyes:

OK, What on earth could they possibly do to coffee that would leave a trace of gluten????

Seriously, Jestgar, I have no idea. BUT I am PISSED. Could they run the beans on lines with wheat. How flipping stupid.

Doesn't that just make you mad!!! I am moving to the wheat free planet!!!

I hope you don't get sick, but maybe they don't know what they are talking about. I could understand flavored coffee, but not plain.

Maybe they are one of the few companies who use wheat flour to move the beans along the lines.

Who knows???? Erg. I'm not sick so far.

I swear I read in one of the lists lurking around that Gevalia unflavored reg and decaf are fine. Whatever. I threw it out!

I think this is probably the case.

But doesn't it half make you wonder whether it has gluten or not, and a statement like that tends to put me right off a product alltogher.

Really? You drink it...

I did not get sick AT ALL. I'm fine today and I always have a reaction about 24 hours after I ingest a gluteny- thing.

What's really odd is - on Thursday morning I called and checked and the woman said yes, traditional and signature should be fine. I didn't drink it yet. I called on Friday just to double-check and the woman and guy I talked to read me a statement that said "All our coffees contain trace amounts of gluten."

Don't worry guys, I'm going to write to them and let you know. Because frankly, it was the best coffee I've had in a while.

I looked up gevalia in the CSA guide it is a company of Kraft, according to CSA they will list all wheat barley and oats on their lables. I really do drink it regularly. :unsure:
