Root Beer Softdrinks

3 posts in this topic

I have been warned that many rootbeers contain wheatgluten gliadens ?

How may this be so? The ingredients listed for rootbeers appear to be all the same.

Never have I seen a listing of wheatflour as an additive or ingredient of rootbeer softdrinks.

By what ingredient may some rootbeers, if any, be harmful to someone with gliaden intolerance?

Which brands of rootbeer do you know to contain wheat product or byproducts?

How do you know this to be true?

Has a rootbeer manufacturer or bottler or formulator disclosed the offending ingredient ?

Has a wheat gluten intolerant person suffered by ingesting a rootbeer?

What ingredients are the contaminants or are antagonistic to a gluten-free diet?

Thank you,

Jim Culp

Hi Jim,

I can't answer all of your questions but I can help you with a few. First off, the offending ingredients can be found in several forms, artifical flavors, natural flavors, caramel color, barley malt or extract, and also in modified food starch, one or all of these can be found in some rootbeers. I have found more diet rootbeers that are safe than regulars, but I know that there are a few regulars that are ok too.

My son did suffer a mild reaction after ingesting some regular rootbeer (I think it was IBC) but he seems to have no problems with the diet version.

(Where is that list of other gluten-free rootbeers? <_< )

This page, especially the footnotes at the bottom, may help answer a part of your questions. It really helped me see how some of the ingredients are made, and why they may not be gluten-free.

    • People with fibromyalgia often experience symptoms similar to those seen in patients with gluten-related disorders. Could these patients have some kind of hidden gluten sensitivity? Could a gluten-free diet offer improvement in their condition? Is a gluten-free diet better than hypocaloric diet for these patients? A team of researchers recently set out to evaluate the effects of a gluten-free diet (GFD) compared with a hypocaloric diet (HCD) in a group of fibromyalgia patients. View the full article
    • I have been dealing with pain for thirty some years.  I have been diagnosed with RA (sed rate high) due to joint inflammation and nodules, OA due to xray, mri results, fibromyalgia at one point because they didn't want to tell me it was all in my head and, I have nodules on my thyroid.  Other than my sed rate being high, my blood work comes back "normal" so, other than the Methotrexate for RA, I am on no meds for pain.  I take Ibuprofen when needed.  I do not take "pain meds" because I have a low tolerance to medication and I just cant function even if I take 800mg of Ibuprofen.  Example . .. I get a cold and take children's cold medicine.  I take 1/2 the dose of a six year old and it knocks me out.  Some days the pain is so bad, I can barely walk.  My husband bought me a hot tub a few years back for my birthday and it is my go to on bad days.   I was tested for Celiac's and came back okay.  The only other blood work that comes back out of whack are MCHC, low . . . MCH, low . . . RDW, high, . . . ESR, anywhere from 20 to 85 but normally around 40ish . . . TSH, 2.0 or below.  But, the doctors say the first three are not so far out of range that we should worry about it, the ESR just means there is inflammation and the TSH is within normal range.  I have recently gone gluten, dairy, and sugar free in an effort to combat symptoms, pain and weight.  I have noticed a difference in the inflammation and in my general overall wellbeing.  I seem to be more attentive, have more energy, and not is no much pain.  My questions are:  Does anyone else have similar issues while all blood work is coming back normal?  And, any suggestions on how to introduce items back into my diet to test for reactions?  Should I start with gluten or dairy?  The sugar I can live without.  Any info would be helpful.  I look things up on the internet but end up with a bunch of pop up ads for things that are going to cure me.  Thanks in advance.  
    • There is nothing you can really do about the high antibodies.  If it is any consolation, mine have been as high.    Your TSH is too high.  The acceptable range now is around 1 to 3.  You might benefit by increasing your thyroid replacement (or starting) if you are not taking it now.  I feel best when my TSH is closer to a 1.  
    • Do you have a dental school anywhere close?  Even a couple of hour drive might be worth looking into.  See if you can talk to one of the clinical supervisors/dentists.  This would be a case they would like. Or just show up to an Emergency room at a big hospital - if its serious, they can't turn you away.  Because that is what will happen eventually.   Edit - Call up Texas A & M school of dentistry and get your butt up to Dallas!
