I doubt that any Slurpee's contain gluten.

I doubt all are. ESP root beer.

Although I have seen some lists that mention root beer, I have yet to discover a root beer that actually does contain gluten.

I just contacted them yesterday after reading this thread and was notified that NO slurpee flavours contain any gluten. Not surprising. But all that sugar??!! :P

No problem. It makes sense they do not contain gluten but I am a stickler for checking things...

I have heard back that the slurpees from Coca-cola are gluten, dairy and soy free. Here is what they sent me:

Coca-Cola:

Because our flavour formulations are considered a very valuable trade secret, we are unable to discuss the source of the flavours. The caramel colour in our products is derived from corn or cane sugar.

It may be helpful for the guest to know that Coca-Cola is gluten free. Also this product does not contain soy or dairy allergens as ingredients, and is produced on lines that do not process these allergens.

I had a slurpee the other day and it was so nice on a hot day. I felt crappy half way through because it's been years since I dumped that much sugar in my bloodstream at one time but I didn't get glutened.

Slurpees are just one of those things that are EXTREMELY unlikely to have gluten. And, as we've seen, in the U.S they don't.

After reading that ingredient list I'm not sure I want a Slurpee. :ph34r:

However...they sure do taste good on a really hot day. Which is the only kind of day we've been having lately. B)

I don't buy slurpees but love to make granitas and fruit ices which are so refreshing and far healthier because you use actual fruit and none of that extra stuff. :)

    • Why?  Some 35% of the population carries the genes that could develop into celiac disease.  But only a few actually develop it.  It is used to exclude celiac disease and not to diagnose it.  There are some outlier genes too that have been discovered recently, so the gene test is not perfect.   My daughter has tested negative on the antibodies test.  She will have to get retested in the future. But we will not get the gene test.  It may impact her ability to get life insurance or maybe even health!  Just something to consider.  
    • It will turn around, but it probably is going to take more time.  Yes, adhering to the gluten-free diet is critical,  but what doctors fail to tell you is that is can take time for antibodies to decrease.  For some it is a few weeks and for others months to years.   It sounds like you are doing everything right.  Remember, her gut is damaged and eating anything can hurt to digest.  You might consider taking her off dairy for a few weeks until you see improvement.  Then add back in starting with products with the least amount of lactose (e.g. yogurt). Many celiacs are temporarily lactose intolerant.  It might help with the nausea.   When I accidentally get exposed to gluten, I stick with soups and stews, even cooked fruit, like applesauce because it hurts to eat!   Are you sure the medication she is taking is gluten free?  Did you call and confirm with the manufacturer?  Did she have nausea befor she was diagnised?  The side effect of this medication is nausea.  Did the GI prescribe?   Hang in there!  
    • My 10 year old daughter has been on the gluten-free diet for 6 weeks, and she's feeling worse than before the diagnosis. She has very little appetite, has frequent nausea in the evening, and has lost a pound or two that she really can't afford to lose. Our whole household is gluten free except for a few prepackaged items kept in a different room, so I think there's very little chance of cross-contact. She has been put on cyproheptadine to increase appetite and is trying valiantly to eat more, but she's just not hungry and it's very stressful for her, and all of us. She's eating peanut butter, pediasure, avocado, cheese, meat, and all the other calorie-dense foods we can think of.  No oats, not too much processed food. Can anyone give us suggestions or hope that this will turn around? 
    • Yes, the beers which I'm referring to had barley listed in the ingredients panel. For example, this was one I was looking at made from malted barley. Here in Europe things are slightly different. As long as the 20ppm test is passed beers can call themselves gluten free, including ones which you would see called gluten removed. So they share the shelves in the Free From section with the naturally gluten free beers you refer to.  To clarify, I'd be relaxed drinking a beer which never had gluten in it, such as the sorghum based beers which share the shelves with the gluten removed ones over here. I'm nervous about those where the gluten has been removed during the brewing process. This is in part due to a strange reaction I had to another gluten removed beer marketed as gluten free  back when I still drank.  
    • Is this something that you can get done at th GI? Who administers this test? I definitely would like to get this done. I think I’m going to get my son tested too.
