Diet Coke

Recommended Posts

I've been gluten free less than two weeks and things seems to be going okay. However, I have given up Diet Coke due to the fact that I don't know whether or not I can have it. So far it seems to be the only item I've missed. Being so new to this, I am doing research but haven't found an exact answer to whether or not I can have Diet Coke. Does anyone know whether or not it is allowed on a gluten-free diet?

Side note: I visited Chili's restaurant this week and my server actually knew what gluten-free was and brought me an appropriate menu--I was completely surprised by this. (We live in a relatively small town and I was afraid that eating out would be a nightmare) I was able to enjoy my meal and didn't have any side affects!

Diet coke is gluten-free, but some people who are sensitive may react to the artificial flavors and sweeteners.

Re: eating out - it can be difficult and emotionally trying. I usually bring along my own condiments (gluten-free soy sauce, cocktail sauce, sald dressing, etc.). It does seem like more and more restaraunts are getting on the gluten-free bandwagon - I don't know if you have a Chipoltle's nearby, but nearly everything they have (including the chips and maragritas!) minus the tortillas is gluten free. I LOVE that place.

Good luck,

zax

Completely off topic from diet coke, but, was the Chiles gluten-free menu kid friendly? I know the Outback has a gluten-free menu also so I have been checking out safe places to go with a 5 year old.

You are correct. It's bad for you. Moderation is key.

Diet Coke along with most soft drinks are gluten free. All soft drinks by Pepsi and Coke are gluten free. I have heard that it interferes with the absorption of calcium so I try to limit my intake. I have heard it takes 30 glasses of water to neutralize the acid in one can of soda!

Most people have coffee with their breakfast. I drink Diet Coke with mine. I like my caffeine cold :D . I figure I could be addicted to worse things. B)

Yes, there were two entrees for children, one was the burger without a bun and I can't remember the other one-sorry. The shake that they make for kids was also on the menu--if a dedicated blender was used. Good luck!

Enjoy your diet Coke, it is gluten-free.

Awesome! Thank you--I will limit my Diet Coke dosage, but I am so glad to know that I can have one every once in a while!

Me too! I've been drinking OJ instead, it's nice to know I can substitute a Diet Coke!

    • Just opened in Cincinnati, Oh: Ma and Pa's Gluten Free Cafe. Dedicated gluten-free restaurant. I had the pizza hoagie and onion rings last night. I forgot just how oily onion rings were. They sat in my stomach like concrete all night long but tasted great. Next time I'm getting the pizza or pulled pork with slaw and fries.  
    • Nope, had the flu and this has happened before when I ate the chili. JMG, I read the deadspin article. It's pretty funny. First, at least we're not bull testicles(Montana), and second, Skyline is the only one claiming to be gluten-free besides Hormel(sucks) and Amy's(sucks) that is Cincinnati style. There are many other local chili's but none are gluten-free. Gold Star is good but they say they're shredded cheese isn't even gluten-free. Like I said, Cincinnati style is the best. It's supposed to have roots from the Mediterranean area. Gold Star is ran by Syrian family, there is one or two others that are ran by Greeks. I kinda agree with the article when it comes to Skyline but I can walk in a store and buy it in a can. I started to thaw so meat yesterday to give it a go but am out of Cumin. No chili today
    • ....post is 12 years old, please check the dates, On a side note to this topic, I had no gluten issues with tide but it caused itching for other reasons I went with Rockin Green and Mollys Suds for a natural detergent years ago. You get like 70-90loads from a bag try, Amazon, Luckyvitamin, or Thrive for them.
    • Really interesting point Kareng.  In fact, my ttg went up this autumn (November), depressingly, and I saw a nutritionalist earlier this month and she doesn't want to retest til March.  She felt it was too soon for those figures, too.  
    • There was a study where they checked 2 weeks on a gluten-free diet , and antibodies were still going up .  The study wasn't about that, so I think that is why they didn't go any further.   So... looks like 2 months gluten free?  If we think that antibodies are still being made at least two weeks gluten free.... account for the fact that most people need a few weeks to actually figure out and eat gluten-free...I would say it was a bit soon to re- test antibodies.     Edit it to add- if you were tested sept 12 and ate gluten for 6 more weeks before going gluten-free - who knows how high it got.  Shame on your doctor for doing the re- test so soon and discouraging you!
