Billygoat

Hidden Gluten In Drinks?

Recommended Posts

hi all... i was offically diagnosed monday... andi am bummed... and overwhelmed.. my doc told me to see a nutritionst... which i will.. but in the mean time... this is a lot to take in.. i didn print the lists you suggested to billygoat.. and i am even more overwhelmed.. where do i start??? help..lol... i'm trying to suck it up .. but this sux!...

:unsure:

Don't be suprised if the nutritionist is a little lost. Lots of doctors are also lost when it come to celiac disease diet. You'll find as much info on the boards as anywhere but don't always trust that either. Check yourself when in doubt of an ingriedient. Just my experience.

That is interesting so, I can go back to drinking my herbal teas. Like apple and cinnamon. It is nice that we have our own urban legends.

hehe :-) yep. do check the ingredients, of course, particularly on herbals, as toasted barley appears in some teas. (it's flavorful - like toasted rice in asian tea.) but many are gluten free. (celestial seasonings will list "gluten free" on the bottom of the box, even!)

It is DEFINITELY possible to get glutened by drinks. My biggest beef is Tropicana. I got sick as a dog from drinking their lemonade and then did some research and found out that they use gluten (hidden under "natural flavors") in all but 2 of their US plants. That's when I crossed them off my shopping list FOREVER.

Celestial Seasonings will clearly label any gluten ingredients. I've had no problem with Tetley or Lipton. Sick as a dog from Yogi tea though.

Also, I now refrain from mixed drinks in bars because many of the frozen drink mixes use "natural flavors" and I got very sick from a margarita once. Sad... but if I want one I make it myself with fresh fruit and ice and know that I'm safe (and it tastes better anyway).

tea bags, tropicana?????? that is BAD. I didn't even think to look there. I have an entire shelf devoted to tea bags. And it does make sense re: tropicana, I always get sick from drinking it, thought it was the acid. And yet I am able to suck on lemons and limes iwthout a problem. duh!! This is crazy.

I got mad the other day and ate a store bought cookie, it wasn't even good as I like home baked much better, but I was mad and obviously not rational. I am soooo paying for it now.

The wining from the family is going to increase x10 if I cut out their Tropicana, any good brands that are ok???

Their OJ makes me a little sick too, ive never been an OJ drinker b/c of it, and like you i thought it was the acid! But it seems like most of their OJs are gluten-free b/c most dont have natural flavors-- is it the cross-contamination problem?

I'm not sure what the exact problem is BUT this is what i found from the Delphi list after I got sick from their lemonade:

Tropicana (800.237.7799) (http://www.tropicana.com/index.asp?ID=1) (vp=7/23/04).

Only “Pure Premium” from certain facilities can be guaranteed gluten-free. The facility number is listed after the expiration date.

Tropicana (PepsiCo) (800.237.7799) (vp=07/24/02) (www.tropicana.com)

The following Tropicana Juices are gluten-free: Ruby Red Orange; Orange Banana; Orange Pineapple; Orange Tangerine; Orange Strawberry; and all 100% juices are gluten-free (as long as Natural Flavors is not listed). For those with natural flavors you should call the company. Some are gluten-free and some aren't. Some of those listed above might contain natural flavors but these have been verified as gluten-free.

I say call 'em and give em an earful! Minute Maid and Newman's own are gluten-free. You can access the Delphi list (invaluable resource) by going to:

and downloading the files. i have found their lists to be very reliable. Best, Beverly

Oh boy--I drink Trop. Pure Premium EVERY morning. Its my favorite. Now I wonder if when my stomach dosen't feel right during the day for no apparent reason, if thats it. What if I get a carton from the wrong facility? This never ends :( . Anyway, thanks Bev for bringing that to my attention. I did check with them early on and was told that packages with 48 as the first numbers in the code were gluten-free. That was before I learned about the dreaded cross contamination. Oy.

Yeah- I know. It's a BIG beef with me. I wouldn't trust them but that's just my opinion. I buy Newman's. I trust Paul :D
