Soda Gluten Free?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I did a search on here and had some conflicting findings. So here is where I feel confused, do Coke, Dr Pepper, and Pepsi say they are gluten free because they measure under a certain amount (200 ppm) or are they gluten free because there is no possibility of x-contamination?

Recently I have gone 100% gluten-free after discovering that I struggle with wheat but I have been mostly gluten-free for 3 yrs (long story). A month or two ago I dropped soda for a week and figured out that it was making me feel "foggy", this is before decision to go entirely gluten-free. I thought maybe it was because I was drinking diet so over the last week or two I have started to drink regular and realized that not only am I feeling foggy but I feel exhausted after drinking it, not energized. I don't have this problem with coffee though so thank you God I don't need to give up caffeine!!! But soda is definately an addiction for me and I find it hard to stop even with coffee. I guess I'm hoping that it is gluten related and that there is a brand that I won't have this issue with. Advice?

Coke, Pepsi, and Dr. Pepper are gluten-free because they don't have gluten-containing ingredients and aren't processed on any cross-contaminating machinery. They are, of course, terrible for you, whether in diet or regular form (I say this as someone who occasionally caves and has a Diet Coke because they do clear up my headaches). They're essentially chemical water, even the regular kind. I wonder if you feel worn out after drinking the regular kind because of the sugar? As I said elsewhere in a post, if I consume something that chemical-laden, I feel really gross. Maybe you're reacting to that? I know I do.

it could just be that you are sensitive to artificial colors or flavors. i cant handle artificial sweetner... but if the diet isnt the only problem for you it might just be the artifial stuff. does clear soda affect you the same way? like sprite?

I don't have a problem with those sodas, but if you continue to, there's always Sprecher's soda, which are all listed as gluten and caffeine free.

Coke and Pepsi are gluten free as well as Dr Pepper. I personally cannot tolerate Dr Pepper for some reason, something in it makes me feel really funny and bothers my stomach.

I cut out caffeine last year but still have some caffeine free soda once in a while like Sprtie or Squirt.

Good Luck

I have recently begun to have this reaction to Dr. Pepper, too. I don't drink soda much, and a few months ago vowed to cut it out unless I have a REALLY bad headache. A couple bad rounds with Dr. Pepper and I'm completely off it. I wonder what it is about that one? I can do other Pepsi products just fine.
