Beaners (biggby) Coffee

Hello all! This is only my second post or so - so hello to all you fellow GFers! A little background at the end of this emaid so you don't think I am totally a newbie.

I fell inlove with Beaners (now Biggby) Coffee years ago. So when I become gluten intolerant I was devistated to say the least. I had done TONS of research about coffee. It took me weeks to get up enough nerve to try the coffee again. I know one of the managers pretty well and he told me that Paramount Coffee Company in Lansing, Michigan, supplies all of their coffee. So I called the company and talked to the head brew/flavor master (that's what I call him) and he said he has worked with his flavor guy and all of the flavored coffee's are gluten-free, i.e. Creme Brulee, Traverse City Cherry, Hazelnut, etc... I have tried just about every kind, even the Carmel Marvel and I have not had a problem. They make their own carmel sauce (ask to read the ingredients, they will let you) and it seems to be fine. I have not really ventured out much more than that but they have Torani syrup and if you visit their site, most of them are gluten-free too. Just wanted to let you all know since they are growing by leaps and bounds. But he did say be careful, they are working on a new "engery-type" drink and that will not be gluten-free.

Happy sipping!

Mom and Uncle (Mom's brother) have Celiac. I was sick for about 6-9 months or so about a year ago. (We all have different symptoms so I wasn't sure what was wrong). Had blood test and colonoscopy and endoscopy - both negative but with "some stomach irritation." Doc said go gluten-free and see how you feel. After colon/end I felt better; 4 days later felt like a champ and have felt great ever since. I did just do the genetic testing (Prometheus) and here are the results: DQ2 Homozygous DQB1*0201 (DQA1*05-DQB1*0201 and DQA1*05-DQB1*0201). I am pretty sure I just wasn't sick long enough to really damage my villi, the symptoms came on somewhat suddenly and I got right to the issue since I had seen my mom becomve very ill for over 20 years. I am still dealing with the gluten inolerance v. Celiac issue and pretty much have convinced myself that I don't need any validation from the medical community, I just need my health!

Hi - I love Biggby as well and recently got an email back from them stating the following:

Thank you for contacting us regarding the gluten content of our drinks. Actually all of our drinks, at this point in time, are gluten free. Also, while I suspect that our teas do not contain any gluten, I have not been able to receive confirmation from Harney and Sons to that effect. Thomas C.

    • I like Bakery on Mains granolas, the ones that are oat free. They have a fair amount of protein as they have nuts in them.  I also have Cream of Buckwheat if I want a hot cereal or if my tummy is off. It's has a good amount of protein and is really easy to digest.  I definately don't eat the cereals like Cheerios etc that have regular oats that are mechanically sorted. They may be fine but my reactions to even small amounts of CC is too severe to risk it.
    • Leg pain can be a symptoms of celiac or NCGS. Cause can also be from a deficiency brought on from different causes including celiac. How are her magnesium levels? And B-Vitamin Levels? Bit of a joke, doctors call their occupation a "Practice" seems they need more practice.
    • I keep my eggy flat bread in the freezer for quick fixes of eggs normally. But I do sometimes make a porridge out of almond and coconut meal, Konjac flour can be used to thicken stuff into a nice porridge wand works great with almond butter. and I sometimes make a oatmeal knock off using Miracle rice, almond milk, and a bit of coconut flour. I can not eat carbs/grains so my cereals are nut based lol. When out of the house I find MRM meal replacement powder turns into a goopy chocolatey slop of indulgence with a very acquired texture by pouring in hot coffee and topping with a sugar substitute (Flax Meal in it thickens up alot)  >.>
    • It's so frustrating how they don't order all or the right tests and then if something comes back not right--just ignore it.  With my daughter I knew something was off for some time but her blood tests -of course it was only a ttg iga and immunoglobulin a that were run-came back negative.  But in looking at previous blood tests-she had a cbc run about a year ago that showed that her MCV was high and there was no mention of it.  Makes me wonder if that along with a deficiency in her vitamin D levels can be attributed to celiac.    On a side note--she has been experiencing lots of leg pain-to the point where she is sometimes in tears because they hurt so much!  She had her endocrinologist appointment yesterday and mentioned that and he didn't think that this could be attributed to the celiac.  Is that true?  As I stated before she is having the biopsy this Tuesday but I think she is hoping that this is a symptom of the celiac so that it will resolve going gluten-free.  Any thoughts?
    • I eat oatmeal and granola made with certified gluten free oats. I have to be careful of those that are labeled just gluten free or organic oats on the label as I have had adverse reactions. I also eat Rice and Corn Chex.  If I am traveling, I can usually find them in grocery stores even in small towns. Took Chex cereal with me when I had to evacuate for hurricane.
