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.

BTW Gevalia hasn't ever called back. Or if they did, no message.

They never emailed me back after the stupid response about the amount of gluten being suitable for diabetics. Any company that doesn't known the difference between gluten and glucose is scary for anyone consuming these products.

Alarm bells there for sure!

The coffee bean is gluten-free without any doubt. While it is possible that the flavor contains hidden gluten as malted barley, it is not likely. Barley malt is expensive, so rather than hide it, manufacturers will usually highlight it.

I don't like flavor in my coffee, so this is not so much of a concern for me. But I do drink plain coffee all the time, and have never had an issue with it.

If a company says "may contain traces of gluten" AND someone is reporting a reaction, that's enough for me to choose another brand.

Thanks for the information!

Have to say I have noticed less of a trend for reaction (and it is always so mild anyway with me) with my own coffee made in a cafetiere. I use Starbucks Verona blend from Asda with a little milk. I am more likely to get a reaction when buying a coffee out and particularly with ones with a higher milk content such as lattes and cappucinos (lactose issue rather than direct gluten issue?), being mindful not to add any 'sprinkles'. Haven't braved the flavoured coffees from such chains such as mochas - unsure as whether this may be a step too far with gluten in the flavouring. A dietician I saw earlier today recommended decaf for a few months (was diagnosed 6 weeks ago).

Dunkin Donuts French Vanilla ground coffee isnt gluten free. The label just says "Natural and Artificial flavors" but I reacted to it several times. I couldnt figure out what was making me ill so I emailed and got a CYA explination that their flavored coffee can have gluten.

Is Gevala really coffee? Wait, I'm thinking of Postum. That has grain, but I don't know what kind. I know I'm safe with my Community with Chicory.

Postum is made from wheat and wheat bran, among other ingredients. It is a Kraft brand, so any gluten will be clearly listed, but in this case the wheat is front and center.

Can you post the reply, Please? I am not denying your illness, but often times, we react to different things. It does not always mean that a product or a drink contains gluten.

But it would make sense that there would be a CYA statement, when you buy a cup of coffee in a Donut Shop. :blink:

I would like to see their response. :)

Sorry this is only really applicable for UK readers but here goes and just for info really:

1. Tried two Costa Mochas over the last two days and did not get a reaction and felt fine (their 'Flat White' coffees have given me a mild lactose-like reaction). See here for details:

2. For the Cafe Nero chain see here for gluten details for their drinks (note: mocha here has wheat) unlike Costa: http://www.caffenero.../hotdrinks.aspx

I have stopped drinking coffee as it made me sick to my stomach for days after. I also read some where that the roasting of coffee changes it some how and people who are gluten sensitive like me react to it.

    • Congratulations!  😊
    • KALE! It really is a super food. Lots of Vit C as well as other vitamins & minerals. Now I know you wanted something to drink but I'm just saying kale is hard to beat for nutrition. You can add it to liquids but yes, it does tend to have a strong flavor. As far as OJ goes, I rarely ever drink it & that includes pre-diagnosis. Every time I have tried bought OJ, it just turns me off, doesn't taste good. Actually it tastes fake to me. I did grow up where citrus grows & we were always eating oranges right off the tree or squeezing them for fresh OJ. It's hard to appreciate the store bought stuff when your palate knows the real thing.
    • Optimistic! (Insert jumping up & down with joy emoji here) You are doing GREAT!!!    Kudos!
    • 9 years ago I was over 200lbs, health started going down hill in college and dropped to under 125 3 years ago. Gaining weight again and now it is muscle. I found I had to add in KAL nutritional yeast to my meals at least 2-6tbsp a meal for the stuff I was not getting due to food intolerance and removing processed foods. Stuff really does help quite a bit. I also take liquid health supplements like the Stress & Energy. The binge eats  I STILL get years later, find myself just fixing a extra glass of protein shake and a nut flour and egg white bread when I am still hungry or mindlessly munching on almonds and seeds. Heck today was 7 egg white spinach omelette with nutritional yeast in it, 4 cups of homemade almond butter/almond milk sugar free icrecream with 3 scoops of protein powder, and then I had 3 pieces of coconut toast, a few hand fulls of pumpkin seeds, and then kept munching on a snack mix I made of hemp seeds and cocoa nibs. >.< I am gaining weight slowly again and up to 130lbs for a 5'11" male >.> I think my hunger might stem from working out alot recently. Bit of a list here from stuff I take and others https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/116482-supplement-and-foods-you-take/ PS if you new to this diet check out the 101 thread will help you out alot avoiding CC https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ I would help you out with foods but the EU/UK area I am not that familar with and sourcing I am sure some of our other members can help you out.
    • Once your tTg is in the normal range, and it's only 1 point away from that, that would be considered excellent results.  tTg just has to be in the normal range to be called a success.  The number you want to be as low as possible within the normal range is the DGP or AGA testing, as that tests for dietary compliance.  This is why it is a good idea to run both tests because it gives a more complete picture.  But with these results I would say you are doing an excellent job with the diet!
