Folgers Coffee - Can This Be Possible ?!?!?!?!?

Recommended Posts

I'm on vacation in Az and it has not been good - I had 4 days of wicked nausea & lots of D, esp. first thing in the morning. We went away to Vegas for a few days & I recovered. Well, now we're back @ relatives in Az and I'm sick again. Thing is, I haven't eaten anything yet this morning but I had two cups of coffee (as is my usual routine)...my intestinal tract is now emtpy :rolleyes: and I am fighting nausea. I felt fine when I got up.

So I googled Folgers and gluten and it comes up as gluten-free but my gut says otherwise. However, how can plain ol' coffee have gluten ?

I felt fine last night - absolutely no nausea.

Am I doomed ? We have 5 more days here...I will buy a different coffee for tomorrow, maybe even instant. I dunno. I'm at that point where I just want to cry - I thought I was over this mess but it's back. I'm so tired and had to take some pepto for a couple of those days...helped a little (and lots of tylenol).

Any help is so greatfully appreciated !

Possible cross contamination?

I will have to buy a new coffee maker before I can make coffee again. I'm guessing my coffee maker got contaminated sitting out on a counter top close to flour, bread, etc. Also, the basket for the coffee filter got washed with other dishes so most likely that is cc also. I'm just doing without coffee now.

We drink Folgers coffee, it's gluten free. But, just a thought, does their coffee/breakfast area include a toaster and bread crumbs? Are the coffee cups, creamer, sugar et. kept near the toaster?

While buying fresh coffee maybe little packets of anything you put in it would be a good idea.

I drink mine black, in my own special cup, that no one else is allowed to touch.

Oh yeah, if your mother-in-law has used her coffee maker for a flavored coffee the machine may be glutened.

my thought was also the kitchen counters, etc. I wipe mine down alot as hubby and son are not gluten-free and the toaster and counters are often in use making sandwiches, etc. The flavored coffee idea is a good one also. And if cleaning the coffee pot doesn't include a good hot dishwasher, perhaps things such as wash rags with bread crumbs and such would be involved. So sorry you are so sick!!

I was okay with Folgers for a several months, but then I got a bad can...nausiated right after and dizzy. Same with walmart's brand but newer package, coffee,(the old was fine), Shurfine dark roast really bad reaction right away, most recently Cafe Bustelo. Off my list before I knew I had celiac's was Maxwell house, 8-oclock beans and ground red package, and most green mountain beans...also flavored coffee..I thought with flavored I was having a chemical poisoning!!! I'm pretty sure it is the brand of coffee, not coffee itself--this last time I did a pretty extensive elimination, including coffee. As soon as I had a cup...I got sick all over again.

I get the same kind of reaction as if I had gluten...except not as bad GI. I get stomach growling, brainfog (bad), bone pain, morning stuffiness, morning lethargic, cold limbs, acne break out, intense scalp itch. I just bought plain organic beans...so freaked out over this I actually rinsed them before grinding...no reaction so far...it's been 2 days.
