I know coffee has some occasionally... unsalutary effects on me, but it ain't gluten. Wouldn't all us old-timers have noticed a problem with this by now? Especially since I've reacted to such ridiculous things as sour cream that had corn starch in it that was 'same facility'.

Yes coffee is gluten-free. This is someone saying something outrageous to get noticed, in my opinion. YOu can put anything on the internet and find someone who will "bite".

Sometimes people can't drink coffee, sometimes people can't eat coconut or peanuts....it has nothing to do with gluten.

Besides, how much protein could be in a brewed beverage?

Personally I think that its the grounds that irritate an all ready sensitive stomache lining...I also heard the same thing about peanuts reacting like gluten...personally ...I find its the oil in the nut...small amounts seem fine .the more coffee(grounds)/peanuts(nut oil) consumed the bigger chance of tummy upset...but GLUTEN..REALLY?!

Maybe in INSTANT coffee (as an emoulsifier)! But the coffee its self? HMMMMM!LOL! :rolleyes::D

You can't find any safe tea? Most tea is safe unless it has barley/malt flavoring added. Bigelow and Celestial Seasonings are two major brands that label which of their teas are gluten-free and I've never had a problem with them. Right now I'm drinking a cup of Trader Joe's Earl Grey.

Trader Joes IRISH BREAKFAST....OUR FAVORITE....Yummmmmmmmmm! Mint medly,white pomagranete,and english breakfast are also yummy!!!So is the seasonal one with vanilla cinimon with the lemour on it! LOL! Trader Joes tea is SooooooYUMMY! :lol:

NO. There is no gluten in plain coffee--instant or brewed.

In the June 2010 publication of Gluten Free Living, they state "Plain coffee is gluten free. This includes ground regular and decaffeinated and instant coffee. Flavored coffee has always been considered suspicious in the gluten-free community, but in most cases it, too, is gluten free."

If it is flavored, READ THE LABEL!!!!!

If it is FREEZE-DRIED--READ THE LABEL. I read one article on LIVESTRONG (FWIW) that suggested some company used flour in it? Cannot say if that is true.

It comes down to this: If there is wheat in it, the label will tell you so.

Before I was diagnosed with celiac I took a short course on how to raise your metabolism. At the time I thought my problems was that my metabolism had slowed and it just needed a kick-start. In the class the instructor spoke about the various things that polute the liver and coffee was one. Stress, prescript meds, injected meats and pesticides on fruits and veggies were the others. It was enough for my husband to stop drinking coffee, he drinks tea now.

What does the phrase "pollute the liver" mean? And how did your instructor explain how tea, which is comparably chemically complex plus very high in fluoride and salicylates, is somehow magically better than coffee? And what about other chemically complex antioxidant foods like red wine, chocolate, or blueberries. Do those "pollute the liver"?

Sorry, but I'm getting really frustrated with these coffee threads. Caffeine is fairly anti-inflammatory, which a lot of us could really use. There are also some epidemiological studies suggesting that coffee is mildly neuroprotective against Alzheimer's. It is also rich in the same polyphenols and flavenoids that give red wine and chocolate their antioxidant properties, but without the sugar or alcohol.

I'm trying to figure out why we have so many people suddenly trying to make coffee into a villian. It just doesn't make sense.

Hi IRISH!... The only reason I mentioned that is because my FOLGERS INSTANT BREAKFAST NESCAFE says gluten-free on it, and I was thinking...Is there coffee WITH gluten? There must be if theres a need to Lable it...like I said...maybe as an emulsifier or bonding agent!also I've read that in instant coffee it CAN be used to keep the nice crystal shape in instant coffee...just saying! Like you said...and I tell other people...READ THOSE LABLES!!! :D

Very rarely, flavored coffee has barley malt in the "natural flavorings". If you like the flavored coffees it's best to write the manufacturer and ask. I know Peet's brand is safe. Plain unflavored coffee is naturally gluten-free.

Skylark, I think it is like anything else....there's lots of difference thoughts are various foods as to whether they are good or bad for you. I think a prson has to weigh the info and decide for themselves. This instructor was saying that coffee is loaded with all kinds of chemicals which happens in the processing before it goes to the grocery store shelves. She said the bean itself is not the problem.

Huh? I'm sorry but this instructor doesn't know what s/he is talking about. There are no chemicals used in coffee processing. Go look it up yourself! The bean has the fruit either naturally fermented or scrubbed off, it is dried, the hull mechanically removed, it's sometimes aged, and then it is roasted.

If you are concerned about pesticides or decaf, buy organic. Only CO2 and water processed decaf are allowed to be labeled organic.

    • Certainly seems likely if those levels dropped due to gluten removal. I am just curious, when you had the scope eventually, were you eating it?  Are you feeling any better? 
    • 1. Double checked your antibodies? 2. Those of us with celiac have issues with some nutrients for various reasons, being either we can not absorb enough of them from our foods due to damage to intestines or the new gluten-free foods you changed to are non fortified and do not contain the nutrients you which is especially true if you eat a bunch of processed gluten-free foods. A combination of both of these can lead to extreme fatigues. I found taking Magnesium, and B-Vtitamin supplementation helps (Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with Neurological support same company, Liquid version is easy to absorb and no pills). Look into KAL Nutritional Yeast also, I use it to make condiment cheese sauces, toppings, blend it with egg whites. it contains many nutrients we are lacking and is a great supplement/food to have in your diet. 3, Look into what cycling lady mentioned, this could also be a issues. 4. Had your blood sugar checked?
    • I'm going to play Captain NCGS to Posterboy's Professor Pellagra (No doubt the Marvel and DC Cinematic Universes will soon be bidding for our services) and say that regardless of the blood test results, this: is exhibit one. You have a reaction to the gluten free diet. That doesn't necessarily eliminate fodmaps or issues with other components of wheat, but it's at least suggestive and the main reason I think you need to get back on it and give it a longer go. In fact, as I hinted at in the previous post, I'd be doing my 'goodbye gluten' top 10 croissant and bagel bucket list because I don't think you should go back to it simply based on exhibit one. It's messing with you in a way that it shouldn't. I had sciatic back pain for 20 years which I attributed to a disk injury. It was left sided and when bad travelled down my left leg following the sciatic nerve. I had all the scans, treatments, exercises etc. Nothing really worked and it was at times intensely debilitating.  Drum roll... Gluten free diet cured it. My new theory is that gluten related inflammation was localised in that area and it caused the pressure on the nerve. Now why there and not elsewhere? No idea, but it could be inflammation causing your pain? I went for several diabetes tests because I would suddenly become very weak, hungry and I would feel unwell. Weak, hot, light headed, on the verge of passing out. The tests were normal but I knew that I seemingly had a blood sugar issue. Another win for the gluten-free diet.  It sorted the tremors in my hand (begone thoughts of early onset parkinsons or ms) and the nerve twitching under my eye and etc etc. well you get the point. I've said above I sometimes wonder if I'm undiagnosed celiac but there are certain aspects of NCGS which seem to fit me and maybe you too. My digestion stomach etc is much better now but I wouldn't have said before all this that it was particularly bad. I read this http://www.bmj.com/content/345/bmj.e7982 and I have a similar experience that neuro symptoms were more apparent than digestive in the 'classic celiac' model. (more of that sort of thing here though I already sent you the Umberto Volta I think. I would be fascinated if you, your brother and myself were to do the gluten challenge and then take this test: http://www.medicaldaily.com/non-celiac-gluten-insensitivity-blood-test-392850 what the result would be. But you know what, unless the scientists put out a call for more volunteers I won't be doing it. In the search for answers, validation, certainty, it's easy to forget the real goal, feeling better. After several years on the gluten-free diet I feel better. I'm no longer thinking that the next bout of chest pain will be my last minutes on earth. I no longer worry about going blind because half my vision has gone grey, I'm not trembling, I don't have cardiac arrythmia, I don't have rheumatic pain, I don't have crippling back ache like I'm 40 years older, I don't get  faint, dizzy and heart pounding when I stand up,  I don't have brain fog, anxiety, depression (well sometimes!), painful stomach cramps, weird white tongue, rashes on my torso, horrible greasy skin on face, horrible dry peeling scalp, sores on my scalp and neck, white spots on my fingernails, I'm not sweating so much I have to douse myself in antiperspirant, I don't have all this and more and I don't have a letter from a doctor saying I have celiac and I don't give a **** about it. I don't have gluten and as the Godfather of soul would say...  I feel good  Feel good IT. You've done as much as anyone could to find an answer. Maybe there's one around the corner or maybe there'll be one in 5 or 10 years when the likes of Marios Hadjivassiliou, Umberto Volta or Alessio Fassano have completed their research. Or maybe not or never. It's in the 'nice to have' than the essential's for me now. Do the diet, note your symptoms, stay connected with your doctor so that if there is anything that sticks around suggestive of other things you're on top of it, but feel good and focus on that and enjoying life.  All the best!    
    • I think he's right. It's a hard burden at times at any age but there will be particular challenges for your daughter as kids don't want to stick out or have to be continually monitoring things like their food. Check out this advert from a UK retailer. Beware it's so sugary it could probably give a diabetic person a sugar crash! Maybe you could do similar? Just get or make a selection of kid friendly foods but don't say anything about it to your daughter, just everyone go in and start filling their plates.  If she asks you if you've done anything for her you just tell her that she can eat everything on the table. At least this would show both that choice is still available to her and that because everyone is eating the same thing that she won't feel like she's being singled out?
