In the US, it is illegal to not label the wheat. If it were wheat, it would say starch ( wheat) or something like that. I'm sorry that the soda made you feel bad, but it was not gluten.

I was glutened by root bear once. I beleive it was Barks Rootbeer and one of the ingredients in it was modified food starch.

If there is anything like food starch, or starch without stating what the source of the starch is, just assume it is wheat.

I only drank about an inch from the bottle and I was sick for three days.

I think you have it the other way around. If you see 'modified food starch' you can assume that it has NO wheat. Wheat by law, in the US, must be listed as 'modified food startch (wheat)'.

This was not in the US. And I got very ill after drinking it so I assume that it was wheat. On lables in Canada if there is any starch - modified or not - it must be labled as to the source of the starch. Most of the ones with modified food starch are either wheat or corn here. But this was a few years ago and the source was not identified. From the reaction I had, it was gluten.

Barq's Root Beer is a US manufactured product and in 2012 it was purchased by Coke. It is listed as gluten free, currently. :)

Barley is definitely not on the allergy list of items that must be revealed as ingredients in the US. Even wheat is often in items in small amounts without being listed, as in cross contamination or distilled alcohol often used in flavorings. Some people react to both.

Did you read the ingredients?  There is no gluten in the main stream brands.  Maybe you can't handle the high fructose corn syrup?

I have read that root beer often has gluten. Seriously? I have read the ingredient list on a couple of different brands, and I'm just not seeing it. Does anyone know what ingredient I should be looking for? Thanks!

Sadly, Best Damn Root Beer is brewed with barley malt. So it has just as much gluten in it as regular malt beer and/or malt beverage.

That is not really root beer!  That is an alcoholic malt beverage,  This thread is about the soda pop

    • Hi! My daughter is 19 was diagnosed at age 16. It took about 12-18 month s for her to fully heal from the damage and feel "normal" again. Also because of the damage done she had reactions to dairy, so you may want to try no or minimum dairy until youre fully healed. Just a suggestion. Hope you start feeling well soon!
    • Hi yall! New to this blog, but really glad it exists because I have lots of questions. First off, I'm Allie! I'm 17 and newly diagnosed Celiac after about 3 years of searching for answers. I initially went gluten-free on the recommendation of a friend, I felt better in about a month and then my pediatric gastroenterologist had me do the gluten challenge, and my symptoms were the worst they have ever been, and ones I barely noticed before became very present. I did the biopsy and was diagnosed, it's been about 2 weeks and my symptoms are still pretty bad, although my diet has no known sources of gluten or cross contamination. Wondering if anyone has any input on healing post gluten challenge, any tips or how long it took for you would be quite helpful! Thanks 
    •   Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.  
    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some. 
    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there.
