OK, someone posted on here (somewhere) that they wondered if the Barq's root beer made them sick. So I decided to contact Coke and find out what is gluten-free, since I'm a soda-aholic. And I got a CYA e-mail that has me all worried now.

Can anyone tell me what, if anything, I can still drink?

Thank you for contacting The Coca-Cola Company, Mrs. XXXXXXX.

We are able to confirm that Coca-Cola classic, caffeine free Coca-Cola

classic, Coca-Cola Blak, Coca-Cola C2, Coca-Cola with Lime, Coca-Cola

Zero, Barq's root beer, caffeine free Barq's root beer, diet Barq's root

beer, diet Barq's Red Creme Soda, Diet Coke Black Cherry Vanilla, Diet

Coke, Diet Coke with Lime, caffeine free Diet Coke, Diet Coke Sweetened

with Splenda, Sprite, Diet Sprite Zero, vanilla Coke, diet Coke

vanilla, cherry Coke, Diet Cherry Coke, Fresca, DASANI Lemon, Minute Maid

Light Lemonade, Simply Lemonade, Simply Limeade, POWERade Mountain Blast,

and our 100% juice products (without added ingredients) are gluten free.

Additionally, we can tell you that all of our other products meet

Codex's definition of gluten-free, which is currently less than 200 ppm

(parts per million) (0.02%) gluten. Codex is in the process of reviewing

this standard and we are monitoring the progress closely. At this time

the U.S. Food and Drug Administration does not have a regulatory

definition of gluten-free.

We can assure you that the exact amount of gluten in these products is

very low - perhaps even zero. Some minor ingredients in these products

are manufactured from plants that gluten-sensitive people could react

to, so we are unable to state categorically that they are totally

gluten-free even though they may have undetectable levels of gluten in them.

The Codex guideline provides a very low threshold for gluten content.

However, extremely gluten-sensitive individuals should discuss

consumption of these products with their health care provider.

We hope that this information is helpful. Should you have additional

questions or comments, please visit our website again.

It's hard for me to determine what their other products are!!! The list of gluten-free is so long, what else do they make?

Edit-- Oh, looking back over it, I guess it's just other flavors of things listed.

Coca Cola sodas are on all the lists I could find - as gluten-free with no caveats or conditions. That legaleeze stuff they put is probably about just about everything processed, mfg'd, packaged, or "made up" and not just raw food - UNFORTUNATELY.

I have never had a problem with any of them (Barq's, all the Cokes, Pepsi, Ginger Ale, most of the sodas, but I am not a big drinker of soda).

OK, so that person who wondered a while ago why Dasani could be making her tummy hurt might be running afoul of this "gluten lite" thing? Since Dasani isn't on the list? Only the lemon type is?

Bizarre. OK, the ones they listed (like my Diet Coke!) are OK, but everything else is off limits. I think I've got it.

I have drank regular Dansani, and I'm very sensitive and did not have a reaction. I think it's just a CYA statement, probably because they outsource some of the ingredients.

From what I understand (and I could be wrong), these products are gluten free:

Coca-Cola classic, caffeine free Coca-Cola classic, Coca-Cola Blak, Coca-Cola C2, Coca-Cola with Lime, Coca-Cola Zero, Barq's root beer, caffeine free Barq's root beer, diet Barq's root beer, diet Barq's Red Creme Soda, Diet Coke Black Cherry Vanilla, Diet Coke, Diet Coke with Lime, caffeine free Diet Coke, Diet Coke Sweetened with Splenda, Sprite, Diet Sprite Zero, vanilla Coke, diet Coke vanilla, cherry Coke, Diet Cherry Coke, Fresca, DASANI Lemon, Minute Maid Light Lemonade, Simply Lemonade, Simply Limeade, POWERade Mountain Blast, and our 100% juice products (without added ingredients).

I'm guessing that there is no guarantee that their other products are gluten-free.

It's pure CYA. They just won't "guarantee" the ones that have ingredients they don't manufacture.

    • What you can do is get follow-up testing.  This might help in determining if you are gluten-free diet compliant.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-often-should-follow-up-testing-occur/
    • It looks insanely good. First time I've wished I was back in London for ages Omg I have to leave the thread I've not eaten yet and now I crave steak  
    • It has always been odd to me that the US, the land of innovation in the world, cannot make great gluten free bread. Of course, no one cares about that except Celiac nation.  I am not saying there isn't good gluten-free bread here because there is.  In the 12 years since my diagnosis, it has come a long way.  However, every time I visit the UK, I am amazed at how much better the bread is.  It more closely matches the flavor and, most importantly, the texture of gluten bread. In fact, there were a few times when I ordered something with bread in a restaurant, and I panicked after taking a bite, thinking they had gotten the wrong bread. No, they didn't...it was just that good!  For those near to London, I implore you to visit here:  http://www.beyondbread.co.uk/  You see those French baguettes?  I had a panini sandwich made from one of those and it was almost a religious experience.    They have won awards for their bread and I can believe it.  I tried to get them to come to the US and open another bakery but I don't think that's going to happen. They have 2 locations......Fitzrovia and Islington.  The Fitzrovia location is very near to the Goodge St. station. Now, hop on the Tube and go there! The meat IS good here, JMG.  We just have so many cows. Cattle country. Now they have created dry aged steaks, which are pricey but they are like the crack of meat. Once you taste how tender they are, you have trouble going back to regular, non-aged meats. They are so tender, they cut like butter. As far as the antibiotics in meat, you can easily buy unadulterated meat here. It's the cheaper, mass produced meats that do that. I know my food and the one thing I love about Europe is the food. In many ways on certain items, the quality is unsurpassed!
    • It is common for school teachers in the United States not to know what student has celiac disease, or allergies of any sort. Most schools don't have formal systems so that the principal, school nurse, teacher, or cafeteria workers know when a child has celiac disease or food allergies. An informal game of roulette is played, where everyone assumes that everything is fine – that is, until a child has a heath reaction. View the full article
