Anyone ever have a problem after drinking the occasional cup of maxwell house coffee? I know that coffee is gluten-free, but it still pisses off my DH. And yes , it's plain old coffee with 2% milk and 100% organic sugar. And no, I am not lactose intollerent , dairy, or caissein (sp?) intollerent

You may be intolerant to coffee, I am.

I've never noticed that coffee bothered my skin, but it sure does a number on my stomach. I haven't been able to drink it in years.

Oh gawd....

I was on vacation in Florida...at my aunts. I had some Dunkin Donuts...coffee.....

I was in the loo for over 2 hrs on and off...stomach cramps....etc etc.

Yesterday when I went to my big GI appt she said until your intestines have healed....coffee can do a number on celiacs...only because its so rough on your system....and just goes right through.

So....as much as I would looooooove to drink it....I just can't anymore....so I stick with tea with milk...liek Chai.....or green....or Jasmine....

Most coffees don't bother me (drink it black), but everytime I've tried those Folger's flavored coffee grounds in the plastic tub I have something that seems like a mild gluten reaction within a couple of days. Since I'm new at gluten free, I'm not absolutely certain it is the folgers, but it's seemed like it enough I gave my folger's chocolate and French vanilla tubs to someone at work...now I just sit and inhale how good it smells when they are brewing it, and stick with my plain old Maxwellhouse, which never seems to bother me.

Maybe one day in the future I'll try a little of those folgers again. I wonder sometimes what-all is in ground coffee...it might be better to just grind your own beans. But it's true what the others have said: I know lots of people (celiac or not) who just cannnot drink coffee without it tearing up their stomachs.

I've switched to organic coffees, but used to have trouble with certain brands of coffee... some companies actually dust their lines with flour to keep the beans moving along... (was told this after calling one company after being in the bathroom for two days straight after trying their coffee)

Wonder if it would be a good idea to just buy coffee beans, rinse them off and grind them as necessary????

Maybe I sound really paranoid...maybe I just AM, but the longer I go at this, the better I feel, and I'm not into tempting fate with any possible down days...I like feeling GOOD.

Coffee can just be hard on your system...it's quite acidic. It's one of the items doctors recommend cutting out of the diet when someone experiences stomach/GI or bladder ailments.

You could try a milder roast to see if it is any better.

If a company dusted with flour, wouldn't it need to be on the ingredients list? I doubt many coffee companies do that anyway...coffee beans don't have a tendency to clump together anyway, and flour would negatively affect the end product.

Yes, I too tend to stick with one cup of hot tea in the morning. Even people without a gluten problem have coffee issues...if you start to ask around others who can tolerate gluten, you will see that a majority of them cannot handle coffee very well. If my father-in-law (who pretty much has an iron stomach) even smells coffee brewing it send him off to the bathroom...but he drinks it every morning. My friend has to go every morning as soon as she takes her first sip of coffee. My mother always told me that coffee is what keeps her regular evryday, because that's when she uses the bathroom. Coffee is definitely a natural form of a kind of "laxative" if you ask me!

brizzo, since you're having issues with your skin, have you done any allergy testing to see if there are other allergy triggers? What about patch testing for chemical sensitivities/allergies?

One of my major symptoms is skin itchiness & sensitivity...I get hives, eczema and what the dermatologist thinks may be psoriasis (have to go back during a flare up to confirm). I know I'm allergic to a number of things and just confirmed with patch testing that I'm allergic to nickel, chromium and cobalt. Those things are in all sorts of products we use daily, including vitamin supplements and foods. For the nickel allergy I was given info about which foods I need to eliminate if my skin isn't improving from avoiding obvious nickel products...that includes foods stored in metal cans, jars, etc (coffee is on the safe list in terms of natural nickel content, but pre-ground coffee is often stored in metal cans.)

Yea, I've done the whole skin allergy test for contact allergy.....Believe it or not, I had no allergies at all. My coffee reaction isn't GI, it's DH. I will try organic coffee and filters, seems like the next best approach..

Actually, it's a great idea to buy a coffee roaster and roast your own. You'll save tons of money doing it, and it will be the best coffee you ever had. I have no idea about gluten that might be in coffee, though. I had to give it up, but my roaster was about ready to be replaced anyway.

hi. i just wanted to let you know that i also had an allergic reaction to maxwellhouse master blend coffee. i have been a cofee drinker for many years often drinking eight to ten cups a day, although i have never really drank that much maxwellhouse. I recently bought some because it was on sale and we loved the taste of it, so i continued to buy it for the next two weeks. my hands were swelling and turning bright red, itching horribly. i thought i had a blood sugar problem until it occurred to me that the syptoms coincided with the coffee brand switch. i changed back and no more syptoms. i wonder what is in that brand because i have no other known allergies other than mild seasonal and to natural hair lightener products, however i should mention that my 17 month old son is allergic to everything but air.

With all my intolerance's, coffee has never been a problem and I am so thankful for that. It and my peanut butter, they are like the 2 comfort foods that have not been taken away. Maxwell House though, I must say, is the least favorite of all, I just found that out. It was on sale a few weeks ago and I bought it just for that reason. I have been drinking Folgers and I like the Folgers so much better. I love 7/11 coffee and do stop for Dunkin Donuts (coffee) sometimes and never have problems. Flavored coffee's can be a problem, they sometimes do contain gluten, just as flavored teas do. I was glutened by hazelnut coffee at a Hess station about 5 yrs ago and I will never try a flavored coffee again, I don't like flavored coffee anyways, the hazelnut I got was made in the wrong pot and I got it by accident. Within 20 minutes of drinking it, I had terrible cramps.

I love my coffee!!! :D

    • My MRI has been clear. They did a spinal tap back in May which was also good.  MS ruled out many times. All my symptoms match Gluten Ataxia, but I don't know for sure since I don't have a dx. However, I DO have Hashimotos so at least going Gluten Free is necessary for that. I go to my Rheumatologist on Jan. 30th, 2018. Can a Rheumatologist determine Gluten Ataxia? If so how long should I be back on Gluten for testing?  Thanks for the heads up on Free and Clear products. I will look into that.
    • tTG-IgA Tissue Transglutaminase Immunoglobulin A Self The enzyme TTG deamidates gliadin (a broken-down component of gluten). In reaction to the presence of TTG, the antibody immunoglobulin A (IgA) is produced. Raised IgA antibodies indicate short-term immune response, indicating ingestion of gluten 2-4 weeks preceding the test.   Not 100% specific: there are other causes of a positive test, including diabetes, heart failure, Crohn’s and others. Also, people who have celiac disease can get a negative result with this test. Machine-read. tTG-IgG Tissue Transglutaminase Immunoglobulin G Self In reaction to TTG, IgG is produced. Raised IgG antibodies demonstrate long-term immune response, indicating ingestion of gluten from 3-6 months, sometimes up to a year, preceding test.   Valuable in diagnosing Celiac in patients with selective IgA deficiency. DGP-IgG   Deamidated Gliadin Peptide Immunoglobulin G   Newer, excellent test that detects an immune response to a very specific fragment of the gluten molecule (gliadin peptide).   If both DGP are high, celiac disease almost certain. Accurate for detecting gut damage of celiac disease, so good it is likely to make endoscopy redundant. Does not replace the IgG-gliadin test. DGP-IgA Deamidated Gliadin Peptide Immunoglobulin A   (ELISA) measures antibodies directed against deamidated Gliadin peptides (DGP) in human serum or plasma. AGA-IgG Anti-Gliadin Antibody Immunoglobulin G Anti-self (Older gliadin test.) The antibody immunoglobulin G (IgG) is produced in response to gliadin. Raised IgG antibodies demonstrate long-term immune response, indicating ingestion of gluten from three to six months, sometimes up to a year, preceding the test.   Not specific & sensitive for Celiac, but accurate as an inexpensive test for evidence of a gluten reaction AGA-IgA Antigliadin Antibody Immunoglobulin A Anti-self The antibody immunoglobulin A (IgA) is produced in response to gliadin. Raised IgA antibodies indicate short-term immune response, indicating ingestion of gluten 2-4 weeks preceding the test.   Not specific & sensitive for Celiac, but accurate as an inexpensive test for evidence of a gluten reaction Total IgA Immunoglobulin A Self The celiac blood test panel includes the total serum IgA test because some people (3%) are IgA-deficient. If you have a very low total serum IgA, that can invalidate the three blood tests that rely on your IgA levels. People with celiac disease suffer from low total IgA levels about 10 to 15 times more frequently than people in the general population. EMA IgA Anti-endomysial antibody IgA Self EMA stands for antiendomysial antibodies, which are antibodies produced by the body that attack the body's own tissue. When the EMA-IgA is positive, the patient almost certainly has celiac disease. However, the test also can produce false negative results in patients with celiac disease but only partial villous atrophy.   Highly specific (>95%), and >90% sensitive. The EMA antibodies correlate to degree of villous atrophy. Observer-dependent.
    • Thanks  so much for your response ravenwoodglass - I do have a slip to get bloods done before my visit but I'm guessing he is not testing for celiac diease.  He has requested FBC and diff, electrolytes, LFT's, LDH, ESR - Erythrocyte Sedimentation rte, C-Reactive Protein.  What would be the test for Celiac Diesase?
