Coffee Processed Without Gluten

Recommended Posts

Well, I assume that you are saying deb, that that anyone who is sensitive to gluten beyond 5ppm (pounds per million) or 20 ppm should not eat any farm grown, processed or marketed foods from any where, because companies are not trust worthy.

What do you eat in the course of a day?

Great inroad have been traveled over the past couple of years to work with large companies to disclose what is considered a safe level for Celiac and gluten sensitive to consume. Was life easier five years ago? The progress that has been made in recent years has been enormous!

The topic is, "coffee beans dusted with gluten". I have yet so see a substantiated claim that it does.

Momma Goose, try staying on topic, like you insist we do. What I eat has nothing to do with this discussion. I never stated that coffee is dusted with flour. I simply stated that flavored coffee's can contain gluten in the flavorings. Flat out telling people they do not have to worry is irresponsible, they should always be checking products. Many celiac/gluten intolerant websites state flavored coffee's can contain gluten.

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

I believe that the topic was coffee beans dusted with flour to keep from sticking. This was my reply:

"Coffee in itself is gluten free and it is not dusted with flour to keep the beans from sticking. Flour would be considered one of the eight main allergens and full disclosure would be required.

Enjoy your coffee."

I fail to see how that would be considered an "irresponsible" statement. Others requested documentation from the original poster. None was posted, or none with substance.

The problem with Wikipedia is ANY one can make a definition on that site. That is why some famous people's wiki pages have been locked. People claim they are dead etc. when they are not. So to trust the wiki page saying some coffee beans are dusted is unreliable information. (staying on topic.. :P)

Agreed. All of my son's teachers make it clear that citing Wikipedia for anything is NOT allowed. It's simply not trustworthy.

If you like sugar in your coffee you can take a vanilla bean crack it up a it then put it into a jar of sugar, seal and leave it a couple of days and it will give a great vanilla scent and flavor to the sugar you add to the coffee.

I keep a jar of vanilla sugar all the time. If I don't use it, I occasionally just open the jar and smell it. God, it smells good!
