Folgers Coffee - Can This Be Possible ?!?!?!?!?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm on vacation in Az and it has not been good - I had 4 days of wicked nausea & lots of D, esp. first thing in the morning. We went away to Vegas for a few days & I recovered. Well, now we're back @ relatives in Az and I'm sick again. Thing is, I haven't eaten anything yet this morning but I had two cups of coffee (as is my usual routine)...my intestinal tract is now emtpy :rolleyes: and I am fighting nausea. I felt fine when I got up.

So I googled Folgers and gluten and it comes up as gluten-free but my gut says otherwise. However, how can plain ol' coffee have gluten ?

I felt fine last night - absolutely no nausea.

Am I doomed ? We have 5 more days here...I will buy a different coffee for tomorrow, maybe even instant. I dunno. I'm at that point where I just want to cry - I thought I was over this mess but it's back. I'm so tired and had to take some pepto for a couple of those days...helped a little (and lots of tylenol).

Any help is so greatfully appreciated !

Possible cross contamination?

I will have to buy a new coffee maker before I can make coffee again. I'm guessing my coffee maker got contaminated sitting out on a counter top close to flour, bread, etc. Also, the basket for the coffee filter got washed with other dishes so most likely that is cc also. I'm just doing without coffee now.

We drink Folgers coffee, it's gluten free. But, just a thought, does their coffee/breakfast area include a toaster and bread crumbs? Are the coffee cups, creamer, sugar et. kept near the toaster?

While buying fresh coffee maybe little packets of anything you put in it would be a good idea.

I drink mine black, in my own special cup, that no one else is allowed to touch.

Oh yeah, if your mother-in-law has used her coffee maker for a flavored coffee the machine may be glutened.

my thought was also the kitchen counters, etc. I wipe mine down alot as hubby and son are not gluten-free and the toaster and counters are often in use making sandwiches, etc. The flavored coffee idea is a good one also. And if cleaning the coffee pot doesn't include a good hot dishwasher, perhaps things such as wash rags with bread crumbs and such would be involved. So sorry you are so sick!!

:huh: I think I may have figured it out...

Lucerne brand fat free half and half

????

It has natural flavors in it & is not on the Safeway gluten free list (only the regular half & half is). Have you seen the ingredients in this ?

Anyone know ?

You're right, it's not on their gluten-free list, so I wouldn't trust it further than I could throw it, which isn't far. ;)

I would suggest you call the company that makes the product instead of guessing.

I was okay with Folgers for a several months, but then I got a bad can...nausiated right after and dizzy. Same with walmart's brand but newer package, coffee,(the old was fine), Shurfine dark roast really bad reaction right away, most recently Cafe Bustelo. Off my list before I knew I had celiac's was Maxwell house, 8-oclock beans and ground red package, and most green mountain beans...also flavored coffee..I thought with flavored I was having a chemical poisoning!!! I'm pretty sure it is the brand of coffee, not coffee itself--this last time I did a pretty extensive elimination, including coffee. As soon as I had a cup...I got sick all over again.

I get the same kind of reaction as if I had gluten...except not as bad GI. I get stomach growling, brainfog (bad), bone pain, morning stuffiness, morning lethargic, cold limbs, acne break out, intense scalp itch. I just bought plain organic beans...so freaked out over this I actually rinsed them before grinding...no reaction so far...it's been 2 days.

this thread is 2 years old. Might be more recent info. Most coffee doesn't but it can be hard on your stomach.

    • It sounds like your hives resolved.  I had a six month bout with them.  Antihistamines really helped.  My doctors are not sure if Mast Cell or autoimmune is the root cause.  
    • My kid has Raynauds.  It freaks her classmates out.  She wears shoes and wool socks all year round and we live in a warm state.  It is autoimmune.  She manages it by layering, turning up the heat, use lots of blanket throws.   I have Hashimoto’s and celiac disease.  So, having multiple autoimmune issues is common.  
    • Well, you do need to replace some things because they are too porous or damaged to remove gluten.  Things like old wooden spoons, scratched non-stick pans, toaster, colander, sponges, etc.  Honestly, the list is long, so try getting a few celiac books at the library or Amazon.  Consider reading through the Newbie 101 thread under the “Coping section”.    You should see some minor improvement soon.  It does take time to heal.  Most  around here will say it takes a year!  
    •   When I woke up from my Endoscopy and was told I definitely had celiac disease the first thing I asked my doctor was do I need to get all new kitchen stuff? He assured me that I did not, and as long as my pots and pans and everything else was washed after being used to cook gluten I would have no problems. Well, I'm 10 weeks into my gluten-free diet and still feeling crappy as ever.  I have not been eating out unless the restaurant is 100% gluten-free (I'm lucky there are several near me).  I am very careful that everything I use to cook my food is thoroughly cleaned at home, but is this really enough?  Did you guys need to replace most kitchenware in order really avoid being cross contaminated?   I'm curious to get some opinions before I spend a bunch of money on new/separate stuff.  Thanks!  
    • They have all given you good advice. Like Ennis_Tx said this is not medical advice. Just some observations. Ennis_Tx mentioned already a good B-complex. But people who have Perncious Anemia low B-12 have "Pens and Needles' feeling in their extremities. Mine was much more pronounced when sleeping. . . while sleeping my nerve ending would go to sleep. This would wake me from my sleep.  I would shake them awake/loose much like a leg that had fallen asleep while awake.  We have all felt that feeling before except the whole side of body's nerve ending would tingle/fall asleep enough to wake me from my sleep. Once taking a homocysteine tablet (B6,b12 and folic acid) tablet call FABB for the abbreviated ingredients under doctor's supervision this "pens and needles' went away. This also happened in my finger and toe tips while awake as if I had pinched a nerve in my back. These sensations are now in remission. Also if you think it is Rynaud's then try Niacin or Niacinamide.  It is a natural vasodialotor and the 'warm sensation" people take when using Niacin especially in a work out supplement is Niacin they add to enhance athletic performance for body builders.. . . because this opens capillaries approx. 10 % more allowing more air into the muscles thus improving their work out. This flushing goes away after a couple days of using Niacin.  The Niacinamide form does not flush the way the Niacin form does but provides the same benefit. Both Niacinamide and Magnesium each lower blood pressure approx. 10% each this way.  But if BP is a real problem for you  take the Homocysteine tablet mentioned above or just Folic Acid by itself. My BP is now normal after taking Folic Acid because it controls' how/what triggers constriction in our blood vessels thus effectively controlling BP. These are some times that I have used to improve my circulation. *** again this is not medical advice just things that have helped me with similar issues.  I hope this is helpful. 2 Tim 2:7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
