True? Maxwell House Instant Coffee Gf?

I just got a list of gluten-free foods from Kraft Foods


and they say that their Maxwell House instant coffee is gluten-free. I had heard that all instant coffee cannot be gluten-free because of something they add on the production line to prevent clumping.

Is this really gluten-free? Are any other brands of instant coffee gluten-free?

In four years I've never found an instant coffee that wasn't gluten-free in the U.S.

Read the ingredients--if it says 100% coffee and nothing else, then it is fine. Be very leary of flavored coffees, they do many times contain gluten as do flavored teas. Always read the ingreds, never take anything for granted. I just found this info on an MSNBC website, by Phil Limbert:

Hidden sources of gluten:

Many vitamins and medications can contain gluten in their additives. Always check with your doctor or pharmacist before taking any medication.

Be careful of cross-contaminating foods. This can happen in the toaster, deep fryer, griddle, etc.

Imitation seafood and instant or flavored coffees and teas

Glue on envelopes and postage stamps

Chewing gum

Some lotions, creams, and cosmetics
