I have been having a lot of D since I added coffeemate to my diet last week. I know it is a gluten free product but I am wondering if anyone else has a problem with it. I guess i'll go back to adding my lactaid milk to my coffee..I will sure miss the french vanilla flavor though!

I have trouble with it but I can't do soy. Don't know if that is the case for you.

The two times I got creamer by accident (both before GAPS, of course) I was SO sick!!! It was awful and lasted days. Vomiting, D, dizziness, up all night with cramps. Just thinking of it brings back a bad, chemical taste in my mouth and makes me feel ill!

For flavor, add real vanilla! It's better for you and better tasting, too :)

I had 3 tiny sips of Coffeemate in a coffee someone else made for me. (I always drink mine black.) I had D that evening. I normally have C, so I was shocked! I put it down to some hamburger meat I ate the night before that had had a buttery smell to it. BUT I had cooked it for the kids, and they didn't get sick. Their meal was cooked for 20 minutes and in tomato sauce and vinegar while mine was plain meat cooked for a shorter period of time. I assumed the different meal preparation combined with my already sensitive stomach was why I got sick and they didn't. Now I'm wondering if maybe it was the Coffeemate!

Maybe I should test the Coffeemate some day when my C is really bad! LOL!

sreese68, all it took was a few sips and I was a total mess. I think testing when the c is bad is a good idea. Or better yet, just avoid the stuff. It's synthetic "food" no one should be eating anyway, imo!

Last week i was grocery shopping and in my usual label checking routine i was shocked to see the refill bag of coffeemate now says "may contain soy and wheat". I checked the web page and it said coffeemate is gluten-free but after seeing this post and that the FDA has yet to set standards, now I'm not convinced coffeemate is gluten-free anymore.

LOL! I'm not a fan of synthetic food either, I must admit! (And I thought it tasted terrible!) Thanks for letting me know it only took a few sips. I've never had D as a food reaction, so I'm kind of curious if I would happen again and what ingredients I could possibly be reacting to. I'm going to the place where I drank it next week, so I'll have to look at the container. If I try it again, it'd be more like a Mythbusters experiment - "Does Coffeemate cause D in our test subject, or was it the meat?"

While we now always go for better safe than sorry where gluten is concerned, I just want to put it out there that I reacted to the coffeemate before going completely gluten and soy free. It's likely there is something else in there that is a problem for people, too.

Have you ever looked at annatto as a problem for you? Coffeemate has the food dye annatto, and it has been known to cause D and other gut issues.

There's a good website on what products contain it, as it doesn't have to be labeled specifically and can just go by 'dye.'

Not that it might not have been gluten, if course, but if you're getting a bit of D here and there from unknown sources, figured I'd put it out there. :)

I agree! I am convinced that it made me sick. I now have a migraine and aches and pains. This is my typical reaction to gluten after D. Bye bye coffeemate!

Thanks everyone for the help. I appreciate it.

    • I am curious which gene you have?  DQ6?
    • Tapioca is also a common source for "modified food starch."
    • Thanks for all your help. I got my new test results in. I'm surprised by how fast they came back. It is a different lab (different insurance) and fortunately, it is easier to read, but unfortunately, the results still seem a bit off from a clear cut answer.  Gliadin DP Igg was elevated,  along with my EMA.  The tTG IgA was not elevated on this test, although it was equivocal last time but on a completely different scale since it was from a different lab.     It seems odd that the tTG IgA is lower. Does anyone know anything about that?  At the same time, EMA and Gliadin DP IgG are higher.   I appreciate everyone's input. Until now, I have only been seeing an endocrinologist and my primary care.  They both seem to be aware of celiac but not incredibly confident in navigating the diagnosis.  My endo shrugged off the first test results as not that high.  Obviously, I don't want to have celiac, but I wanted a second opinion.  I was glad that my primary care wanted to at least look at tests again. I'm not sure yet what the next steps will be.   Celiac Serology Profile with Reflex to Endomysial Antibody (EMA), IgA Titer by IFA   NAME VALUE REFERENCE RANGE F Endomys. IgA Screen Positive  A Neg. at 1:5 ("") F Endomys.

    • In the rare instance that "modified food starch" is made from wheat, it will say so in the ingredients or Contains statement.  If you wonder what it is made from, email or call and ask.  I think its usually corn or potato Progresso is part of a large company.  they would not label something gluten-free unless they know it is.  Its a law in the US and Canada.    
    • Progresso soup check the label on their gluten free products, modified food starch is not gluten free.
