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.

    • Thankyou squirmingitch that is useful info, i have decided to go ahead with the endo and biopsy but i know what you mean there are still alot of people out there who still think celiac is not serious and thinks it is a choice. I have a 11 year old daughter and i think it would be foolish not to go the whole hog with this has it would help her in later life if i have the gold standard confirmation as im sure some docs still dismiss it because they do not specialise in this subject.
    • Furthermore, getting a positive on the endoscopy will leave no doubt either in your mind nor in the minds of the rest of your family or friends. All first degree relatives of celiacs need to be tested every 2 or 3 years in the absence of symptoms & immediately if symptoms present since celiac can present at ANY age. So your parents, siblings & your children will need to be tested. Believe me, there is oftentimes a TON of pushback by family members simply because they don't want to have celiac so they stick their heads in the sand & say you're off your rocker, refuse to get tested because they say they don't have it and you don't have a concrete diagnosis so how can you be sure they need to be tested? Friends can be even more doubtful. People are really, really doubtful of people who don't have an ironclad diagnosis. I think it's stupid of them to be so negative & questioning what you know to be true but they are. I mean, when you say you are diabetic, no one doubts that you are, no one questions your diagnosis and everyone respects the implications of diabetes but that is not the case with celiacs. I think it must be that people can not conceive of never eating wheat flour again for life. They can easily accept a diabetics diet but not a celiacs. Yet they will grill you as if they are experts in celiac disease unless you can tell them you've had the full nine yards of testing & ARE, no doubt about it, celiac.
    • Hi ch88, You could try going nightshade free to see if it helps your arthritis.  It might help.  The common food nightshades are potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, turmeric and paprika.  If you try nightshade free for one month that should be enough time to know if it helps IMHO. Sweet potatoes/yams are ok, as they are not nightshades.
    • Thankyou both of you for your advice, i will have the endoscopy will just have to wait, my blood tests were not hitting the roof with reading but a low to medium result, dont want to be one of them people who have gone gluten free with no need, however i do show typical symptons of celiac but no overwhelming symptons apart from feeling nauseous and crampy at times, and extreme tiredness. There is soooo much to learn
    • You are normal!  All the things you are going through are normal for someone with celiac disease....probably with any life changing illness.  What you need is patience.  Most here take a year to heal or longer due to setbacks on the diet or healing from systemic damage.  The nervous system seems to take the longest.  Ask your doctor to check you for any deficiencies.  No sense guessing what you might need.  It is a common and recommended practice to check for vitamin and mineral deficiencies.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-common-nutrient-deficiencies-might-an-adult-experience-prior-to-diagnosis/ Once healed, you might not need any supplements, if you eat a wide and varied healthy diet.
