HI Ali,

When I was diagnosed, back in the dark ages, I was given information to never drink beverages that come out of a machine. You know the ones, where the cup comes down and then the liquid follows. I was taught what comes out of a bottle is safe if the ingredients are gluten-free.

I don't know if the machine blends aren't gluten-free or just contaminated.

neesee

I drink fountain cokes all the time and do not have a problem. However, I think it is very possible to end up with a dirty glass or a dirty nosel (sp?).

It's hard to give them up....I used to drink 8 cans/bottles of Mt. Dew a day. I now limit myself to 1. I drink crystal light and tea instead!

I feel a ton better and the caffine was really messing with my insides!!! Everything regulated again once I stopped!

While not zero, the chance of cross-contamination in a soda machine is minimal. I have never found an soda that has a gluten-containing ingredient, so the risk of getting a bit of another flavor does not worry me. If the cup drops from the machine and then is filled, the risk is about zero. If the fountain is manually operated, there is a chance that the cup will be held close enough to the spout to cause some backward feed. But, again, I have not found a soda with gluten. It may be different outside North America, but I don't worry about it here.

Your reaction could be to mold, as companies are neglectful when it comes to cleaning the lines that feed the machines. I can't drink fountain drinks at all.
