Diet Pepsi?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have been drinking diet pepsi since going gluten free as they say it is gluten free. I have been gluten-free since april 2011. as of lately I notice that I get very bloated as soon as a I drink it and now it is starting to give me wicked stomach pains a few hrs after drinking it and then next day comes the D. What is in it that would be causing me to have the same symptoms as being glutened any ideas? I only have maybe one a day some days don't have one at all.

Thank You

Melissa

This happened to me; my chiropractor told me to eliminate anything containing aspartame (mostly for my chronic back pain). Perhaps aspartame bugs you? Don't forget that the longer we are gluten free the more sensitive our guts can become to other things. :(

You might also be sensitive to preservative benzoates. Benzoates are in all soda pop except regular coke...which is full of sugar.

Some juices and other foods are preserved with sodium benzoates too. I have to avoid preservatives ever since I went gluten free. The chemical sweeteners bother me too. Just a thought.

I was going to say it could be the aspartame too. The diet pepsi itself is gluten free so it must be something else within in that's bugging your stomach.

You may also be allergic to corn. Corn lurks in practically everything, but comes in very high quantities in pop. In addition to my gluten allergy, I also found out after the fact that I was allergic to corn and artificial sweeteners (i.e., aspartame). It was symptoms such as you're describing that ended up pushing me to go to a "west coast medicine" type specialist whom helped me identify the other allergins. Changed my life!!
