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

10 posts in this topic

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.

    • The reason they set the limit at 20ppms is that through scientific study, they have proven that the vast majority of people with Celiac Disease do not have an autoimmune reaction to amounts below that......it is a safe limit for most.  Also, just because that limit is set at 20ppms, does not mean that gluten-free products contain that amount of gluten.  Testing for lower levels becomes more expensive with each increment down closer to 0-5ppms, which translates into higher priced products. Unless you eat a lot of processed gluten-free food, which can have a cumulative affect for some, most people do well with the 20ppm limit.   
    • I'm in the Houston area so I'm assuming there are plenty of specialists around, though finding one that accepts my insurance might be hard. This might sound dumb, but do I search for a celiac specialist?? I'm so new to this and want to feel confident in what is/isn't wrong with my daughter. I'm with you on trusting the specialist to know the current research.
    • Hi VB Thats sounds like a good plan. Would it help to know that a frustrating experience in seeking diagnosis isn't unusual With your IGG result I'm sure a part of you is still wondering if they are right to exclude celiac. I know just how you feel as I too had a negative biopsy, but by then a gluten challenge had already established how severely it affected me. So I was convinced I would be found to be celiac and in a funny way disappointed not to get the 'official' stamp of approval.  Testing isnt perfect, you've already learned of the incomplete celiac tests offered by some organisations and the biopsy itself can only see so much. If you react positively to the gluten free diet it may mean you're celiac but not yet showing damage in a place they've checked, or it may be that you're non celiac gluten sensitive, which is a label that for a different but perhaps related condition which has only recently been recognised and for which research is still very much underway. We may not be able to say which but the good news is all of your symptoms: were also mine and they all resolved with the gluten free diet. So don't despair, you may still have found your answer, it just may be a bit wordier than celiac! Keep a journal when you're on the diet, it may help you track down your own answers.  Best of luck!
    • Run to the nearest celiac disease specialty center if you can. Especially with conflicting doc opinions. Where do you live? Honestly, I test positive to only the DGP and the newest research on its specificity is a mixed bag. My recent scope did not show "active" celiac disease but only a slight increase in IELs.   I am waiting for my post biopsy appointment with the Celiac specialist next month. But I've been through a couple of GI'S locally and honestly I  feel it was definitely worth going to a specialist. Especially when you have some positive blood work but a normal biopsy the doctors really go back and Forth on diagnosis and never really know for certain.  Unfortunately given the above I just said I probably still do not know for certain. Sigh. But I trust the specialist to be at the top of his game on the research  and at least I can feel confident and comfortable in what his opinion may be next month.
