Caramel Coloring?

BUT! There are several supersensitives here on this forum and not one of them has ever claimed to have a gluten reaction to Coke or Pepsi. That indicates that whatever you are reacting to gives you a reaction that is SIMILAR to a glutening, but it is not a true glutening.


gluten-free since June, 2011

It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!

Life is good!

Hello I know this is an old topic, but I felt inclined to post about my experience; I don't have a problem with caramel color although I don't consume it anymore due to the fact that the process that companies use uses chemicals rather than a natural process and now I eat whole foods only. Anyways a little while back at work I had bought several bags of candy that were on sale one of the chocolate in it were Mounds, for some strange reason in certain bags the Mounds had caramel color as an ingredient and in other bags they did not. I had researched caramel color and found out that in America they use corn instead of wheat as a source so thought it was safe, but found out I reacted to the Mounds with the caramel color. I am very sensitive and the one symptom I get every time without fail is extreme twisting stabbing pain on right side below my rib. To further prove my gluten suspicion the candy said gluten free on the wrapper that didn't have the caramel color, but it didn't on the ones that included the caramel color and these were sold right here in America. Therefore it may be very well be possible to find out there something made with caramel color that may be contaminated with wheat. Either way it's best to stay away from this nasty ingredient since companies use sulfites and/or ammonia compounds to prepare it.
