Coffee Ugh!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

After eliminating dairy, soy and most processed gluten free items, I am still feeling very gassy and uncomfortable. This morning I felt pretty good when I got up, that is until I had my cup of coffee. I am not tolerating coffee anymore. It leaves me feeling very similar to how I feel when I have been glutened. I don't get D with it but I get very bad gas pains and a trapped gas feeling. It's apparent that I need to go off coffee and switch to decaf tea now. I was just wondering if anyone else has similar issues with coffee.

Thanks!

Coffee is one of those things your body may "see" as gluten. Some people have the same issue with tea, or decaf tea. Try it and see.

I almost freaked giving up coffee (I was in the try anything stage). I dont think coffee is a problem, but strangely enough I lost my taste for it. But oh wow do I have a chai habit now!!

I just read a few articles about how coffee can be cross reactive for celiacs. I think that means that the body will have a reaction because it is recognizing coffee (or soy, casein,) whatever it may be as gluten even though it's gluten free. Interesting.

I have never been able to tolerate coffee. Even when I sneaked it when I was little it made me sick to my stomach. Now I feel terrible all over when I drink it.

Do you have any issues with corn? I just found out the other day that coffee is often polished with cornstarch - wacky crazy stuff.

Pricklypear, I could have written your post!

When I have coffee now I feel glutened for a few hours. Brain fog, nausea, major fatigue and headaches. I was heartbroken to give up coffee, I love coffee.

I've replaced with with Chai. I drink a lot of it. I find it more satisfying than other teas because it has such a complex flavour. I have at least 6 varieties of chai in my cupboard.

Yes! I'd been off coffee for a bit, then started drinking it again recently. Can't tolerate it anymore. Am also a chai junkie now. What are your favorite kinds?

I've tried Oregon Chai less sweet and Tazo. I prefer Tazo.

I like brewing by the bag, but it's only "tea" - not strong or spicy enough for milk. I'd love to maker own but have hesitated to commit with all the food weirdness.

Has anyone seen any research that supports the idea of coffee crossreacting with gluten. I've seen this idea, but not any research.

Cyrex Labs is who I see referenced regarding this. I can't find the research, but there are articles EVERYWHERE. too many to sift through to find the research. I haven't worried much about it since I figured out it doesn't bother me, and developed the chai habit.

Here's a kink to the test:

That gluten cross reactivity stuff seems to be unsubstantiated. I spent a lot of time checking references and none of them seemed to substantiate it.

I have problems with a lot of coffee, but do fine with Wegmans organic, washed whole beans.

Coffee is one of my treats.

We always buy organic, too. Perhaps that helps. I've heard of people having coffee issues. - not gluten related, usually caffeine or chemical.

I have tried coffee from a variety of sources, caffienated, decaf, organic, regular, locally roasted, factory roasted... it all makes me feel like I've been glutened. I know that anectodes are not data but my experience is definitely that my body sees coffee, thinks gluten and takes a few hours to sort out the mistake.

Wait, what? Ugh, this is not good. Do you have a link or any more info? Would it rinse off?
