Been drinking maxwell house hazelnut coffee on and off cause it was in my freezer and I'm pretty sure

its killing my gut. Does anyone know if this stuff has gluten in it?

I tried looking on their website and googling with no luck. the container shows 'natural flavors' as an

ingredient but i guess that could mean anything.

Whats a good gluten free coffee that doesn't cost 10 bucks a pound?

Also, anyone have a good power or protien bar they can recommend?

I tried the Lara bars and I think the nuts tear me up too. they don't seem to agree with me.

The think thin ones are ok, but pricey and sugarless, which i need the sugar.

Thanks

Nate

I drink Maxwell House plain coffee. I avoid all flavored coffees. The coffeemate flavored creamers are gluten free if you want a little flavor to add to it. I just use Lactaid milk and sugar in mine.

Not sure on the bars b/c I don't eat them - i'm sure someone else will chime in.

I had stopped drinking coffee when first DX. I have since been drinking Folgers Simply Smooth with no problems. It is supposed to be gentle on your stomach. I drink one large mug with straight up sugar in the a.m. I would also like to add some flavor, but have yet to check the gluten-free status of any. I know the creamers would add some flavor for you. I not doing much dairy right now and stay clear of the cream. Also, I did drink my coffee really strong and now on the weaker side.

I do not eat any bars as of right now. I cannot do the Lara bars because of allergies to nuts/almonds. I do know that Zone Perfect has some gluten-free bars you may want to look into. The gluten-free list I have is a year old or I would place it here. You can get a list of ingredients on their website. If you would like, I have their number if you want to call. Let me know....

I use Coffee Mate and it says "Gluten Free" under the ingredients.

I had to cut out coffee in the beginning as it ripped up my stomach. After a few months I was slowly able to add it again. Healing time I guess!

yeah it might just be all in my head but when if find something be it coffee or whatever that just says 'natural or artificial flavors' I get spooked. That could mean anything!

The Lara bars do a number on me too and the flavor is not really what I'm looking for.

The Zone perfect ones do not say gluten-free anywhere and all the flavors I saw at Walmart and the grocery store said

'may contain traces of wheat'. I would think they would print on there if it was gluten-free.

Until there is a regulated definition of gluten-free, many companies refuse, for legal liability reasons, to label their products "gluten-free," even though they, in fact, are.

I got a list of gluten-free zone bars from my dietitian who only sees Celiacs. Her daughter has to eat gluten-free.

Can you post that or send it to me? I would greatly appreciate it. The Lara Bars are just not good. I like the Zone ones though.

I actually got one and posted it in the food section. I sent them and email and they replied right away. basically said none of there bars are gluten-free because they are made in a wheat processing facility, but they have a list of bars they do not contain gluten.

Luna Protein Bars are going gluten-free this spring. You might want to read this article for more info: http://celiac-diseas...ng-gluten-free/

For some reason I'm not fond of Larabars either.

I think its the consistency for me, there are mushey and heavy with a strange flavor, probably the dates.

Aren't Luna the ones marketed to women, its says something about the balanced bar for women on the front or something like that.

I don't have a clue. According to the article only the Luna Protein Bars will be gluten-free.
