Much to my suprise I found out that all coffee is not gluten free, if you want to be sure your coffee is gluten free, grind your own coffee beans with your own grinder.

Please explain what coffee you are talking about as most all regular coffee is gluten free.

No need to scare new people.

Are you talking about instant coffee? I know I read recently that some of that was not gluten free.

Please detail the coffees you've found that aren't gluten-free. We know that virtually all ARE gluten-free, but if some aren't it would be helpful to let people know which ones.

Every source that I am aware of lists coffee, including instant coffee, as being gluten-free. Please provide the specifics to support your statement.

I have never found a coffee that contains gluten though I have only been looking recently and at standard supermarkets and coffee places. I'd love to know where/from whom you got the info.

Here's a thread with a response from Millstone about their flavored coffee's possibly having gluten:

This thread talks about CC and coffee:

And I know that I stopped drinking coffee and switched to tea after about 2 months of gluten-free, as I was having gluten type reactions, but not drinking flavored coffee. I think it's too easy for the flavored and non-flavored to 'co-mingle'. I read multiple threads on here about coffee, and couldn't be sure (unless I perhaps switched to organic and always ground it myself -- not in the budget!), so I decided to drink it rarely instead of daily.

Flavored coffee could possibly (although not likely) have gluten in the flavor. The principal source of gluten in flavoring is barley malt, as a sweetener. It is an expensive ingredient, so it is very rarely hidden.

Coffee is just simply not a major concern for CC.

I want other Celiacs to know that Gevalia Coffee is NOT gluten free. I have been getting sick after drinking Gevalia's Traditional Roast coffee, but I thought it had to be my imagination. I contacted the company just in case. Here is their reply:

We apologize for your inconvenience. Please be advised that ALL of our products have a trace of gluten.

Hmm...maybe this explains it. I think this is from 2009.

http://www.glutenfreeliving.com/Browse/file/GFLwinter09plate.pdf

I guess the question should be the source of the gluten??

They answered my first email within a few minutes. But haven't answered the one asking what it is and if its clearly labelled.

I'm wondering if "Our coffees contain a trace of Gluten" is Swedish for CYA. :)

Maybe so. I could see it coming from the flavored stuff...perhaps the plain gets cc'd. Or maybe it's corn. Who knows. But I'd like to know since coffee is the one thing I don't screen when out (aside from not ordering froofy drinks or flavored).

Why don't you email or call and see what they tell you. we can see if they are consistant or maybe tell one of us something else. They may be wondering why all the interest in gluten.

Once again, it might be different from country to country, but some of the flavoured coffees have gluten in them, but they are clearly labelled as containing gluten, or being produced in the same place as other products containing gluten. The regular coffees are fine, and it's those mixes that are not suitable where you just add water and they already have the milk in them and are sweetened. Not sure if you get them over there, or know what I'm talking about. Being vegan I wouldn't use them anyway, but have taken notice of pretty much everything just to keep it in mind what's safe and what isn't.

It was thier US website. It had products for sale in the US. There was no way, that I could find, to see the ingredients of the plain or flavored coffees before you ordered them.

All of the corn allergy forums warn that there is corn in coffee. I don't know WHY there should be corn in coffee, but I think they are talking about something in the roasting process.

I think if you grind your coffee in the grinders at the grocery store there might be a chance of CC. But grinding it at home would solve that problem and it'll taste better too. (Helps to wake you up in the morning when that noisy grinder starts humming too.)

Did any of you know that you can roast your own coffee in a popcorn popper? It has to be one that "spins" as it pops. It'll make your whole house smell good too. You can order beans online, and if you love coffee as much as I do (It is my favorite ingestible thing in the world.) I reccommend you start with Costa Rican beans. They aren't nearly as expensive as some of the other types like Jamaican Blue Mountain or Kona, but oh my, they are SO good!

We're getting a pop corn maker for Christmas (in the shape of a dinosaur, it's adorable) so that's really good to know.

Okay, I called Gevalia. If anyone else calls just press 1.

Talked with a nice lady that answered "no" to my question "Do Gevalia coffees contain wheat, barley, or rye gluten"?

I then explained that a friend had sent a request through the website asking if their coffees were gluten-free and received a response they contain trace gluten. I then explained the article from 2009 about corn gluten.

She then checked somewhere else (including reading a box of coffee to see what it said) and came back with the response that the FLAVORED coffees contain gluten, but she didn't know what type of gluten.

She is having the question bumped up and someone is supposed to call me tomorrow.

Asked if the gluten is listed and how to see the ingredients before we bought them as I didn't see any on the website. Looking at this response, I'm guessing that the trace of gluten won't hurt our diabetes? they appear really clueless. It does worry me if the coffee does contain gluten, how would you know when you ordered that it wasn't like all other coffee? At this rate, we will have to report them to the FDA for undeclared gluten.

This is the first I've heard of any black coffee containing gluten, but some instant flavored coffees do contain wheat, for example some flavors in the Maxwell House International tins. Whenever I buy anything flavored, I just make sure to read the label like I do with any other food.

    • Yes you are correct. Interestingly my genes in the US are thought to be more associated with RA. Which is something they thought I had prediagnosis. In the Middle and far East they are more likely to be associated with celiac and they are rare genes in Caucasians which I am according to my parents known heritage. I always caution folks not to take the gene tests as absolute proof they can't have celiac because I had one child who had positive blood and biopsy, did well on the diet, then got genes tested in young adulthood and was told they could never be celiac. Of course that resulted in her abandoning the diet. I worry but hope someday doctors will realise we still have a lot to learn about the genetics of this disease. PS While I still have some deformity in my hands my joint pain resolved after a few months on the diet.
    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
