Celiac Means No Coffee?

Before we all get carried away with this again, :lol: let's reiterate plain coffee does not contain gluten.

Can it be contaminated during the preparation process? sure, why not--- depends on who made the coffee.

If you are having pains, could it be you just cannot tolerate coffee??

I do not doubt you have pain, hon--not at all! :)

Hook me up with an IV...LOL! :lol:

But seriously...The fact that my INSTANT NESCAFE FOLGERS CHOICE felt it nessasery to put gluten free on the lable for my INSTANT coffee, made me wonder if maybe OTHER instant coffees might have glutten as a binder/emulfifier to hold those lovely little crystals together!

Some products do carry "Gluten Free" labels without necessity.

I see it on cheeses, popcorn, meats, etc. --that sort of thing.

I do not know why they put it there, since those foods are inherently gluten-free , except perhaps to appeal to the gluten free consumers.

Remember my post about new celiac pain a couple of days ago, even though I'm entirely glutenfree? With me it IS the coffee. I can not have coffee or I'm getting my old celiac pains.

Nice to see you back Stef!!

I used to get headaches from gluten, always in exactly the same spot. For a long time after I was gluten-free, whenever I'd get a a headache, it was always in that same place. I just figured I did some damage right there, and was more susceptible to inflammation (from anything). Finally, in the last year or so, I'm getting headaches in different areas of my head. Maybe I'm healing the last scraps of damage? :)

If you'd pay closer attention to the article, you'd find that Dr. whatshisface neurologist is only name-dropped. It's clear that he is not the person responsible for the research that Moose is concerned about. Of course, neither is there a link to that research or even the person who conducted it which is a shame. But that doesn't prove it's a sham either. Neither does the fact that the site gets paid to exist mean everything it posts is false. It's not like they're advertising some coffee substitute in lieu of coffee.

I have no idea why I would trust the evening news to say that coffee is bad for you before you'd believe that coffee interacts with our immune system...I've never seen anything on the news about celiac disease itself, much less potential spin-off reactions to gluten from other food sources from tests done in petri dishes.

Comments about coffee not having enough protein to affect you is EXACTLY the same logic that people who think we're all being anal when you eat a bread crumb. How much wheat protein can a tsp of soy sauce have in it?

It makes a lot of sense to me actually. I react to a cup a coffee far stronger than I do to even 3 cups of tea. It makes even more sense with the findings that gluten, through expressing zonluin more, creates larger gaps between the cells lining the intestine. If coffee were to cause a similar reaction, it stands to reason that more caffeine would get into the bloodstream than if you just took the same amount of straight caffeine. And there's people here who have made posts about coffee specifically before, saying they had to quit it.

There's info online that says instant coffee has flour in it. Maybe it was wrong. Maybe a brand of instant coffee did/does that.

Regardless though, there's clearly some sort of processing done to instant coffee, and that puts up alarm bells to anyone trying to be gluten free. If I owned a company, I'd label all my products as gluten free if they were.

Oh well... since I have 2-3 cups of brewed coffee a day and never, ever have gluten symptoms from it I'm going with the thought that there's no gluten in my coffee. ;)

Me, too. If there were gluten in coffee, or if we all "cross-react" to coffee, I'd be dead by now.

PEOPLE!!

Now we have 2 simultaneous equally-misleading threads going declaring "coffee is bad for celiacs" :rolleyes:

....it will die a nice, peaceful death if people would stop bringing it back to life with the paddles!! :D

That would be because there is no research whatsoever. I looked up the so-cailed references and they document occasional allergies to green coffee beans among coffee workers. <_< It gives me even less respect for Dr. whatshisface because it's considered poor practice to pad bibliographies. Most people get over that in high school.

Coffee is considered fairly non-allergenic in the peer-reviewed literature. It's a bit irritant if you have gastritis or are trying to heal ulcers but that's about the only issue. Can we please lay this stupid idea of coffee and gluten cross-reactivity to rest? Please?

Nobody was listening here. I didn't say there was gluten in the coffee, nor did I say gluten caused the pain. THE COFFEE (which was entirely glutenfree) caused the same pain that originally only gluten used to cause in my body. Any coffee for that matter. And no, it's not caffeine, I drink coke and Pepsi and have no problems.

I am sorry coffee makes you sick. Nobody is questioning your coffee intolerance or trying to tell you to drink it!

We are trying to make sure that people don't get paranoid because a crazy blogger posted a putative cross-reaction between gluten and coffee. Rumors on gluten spread like wildfire and then people start avoiding crazy stuff like teabags.

I nearly fell off my chair when I seen the title of this thread, but I'm good now, having read the replies :)

I'm not a coffee person myself, but it's a nice treat, however the reason I think coffee would have gluten is because it could probably in the glue that holds the instant packets together, or the K-Cup kind, but I doubt it :lol:

At first, when I read what you wrote, it sure sounded as if you meant that. Then, I reread it again and decided otherwise.

But it may be confusing, I think because you used the phrase "my old celiac pain" is back and "it IS the coffee".... & that may have been confusing to some readers??

Why would that imply that there is gluten in it? If that's the case, I would have written it like that.

And thanks jestgar for welcoming me back. I guess, most people don't know, that I'm an old bird on here. Therefore, I'm also already healed and have no inflammation anymore either, like somebody mentioned, might be the case.

Hi Steph! Hope you are still kicking butts! :D

You did put it on a thread about a blogger who says that coffee acts like gluten or some such nonsense. That might have made it look like you were maybe agreeing with the nonsense. I think we have established that it disagrees with you but has nothing to do with gluten, or fooling the intestines to think it's. gluten or a space alien take -over of earth.

I find the acid in coffee can be hard on my stomach. If I add a bit of milk, it seems to cut that.

Now someone will be upset I called it nonsense & brought space aliens into it. :o

You know space aliens don't have Celiac because they make crop circles in wheat fields.

I'm gonna give the previous posts some serious reinforcements. I've never gotten any information off this forum that was harmful. Without the experience of the people here I would have still been lost and itching my skin into oblivion.

How did you get rid of the itch?

    • You're welcome ritamichelle. Yes, if you are biopsy confirmed then it will be much easier to get your daughter tested. 
    • I agree that In people that have celiac there usually is a trigger. It can be physical or emotional stress as the article states. I wonder though if the people they say 'don't have the genes' are folks that simply have rarer ones. There is research on more genes. I discovered it when I was writing a paper for a class. It was a very long time ago in 'computer age' and my bookmarks died along with the computer I was useing. But it is out there on peer reviewed sites like Lancet, NIH etc. Since celiac was rarely tested for even a couple decades ago there are many folks that may have celiac in their family but it was never known. That was the case in my family. I am confident about that.  I always wondered why my Mom seldom left the house, spent a lot of time in the bathroom, was tired all the time and was always holding her hands the way she did.  Then I became her.  We have so much to learn about celiac. Personally I dislike the term 'NCGS' because it makes folks think at times they don't need to be as strict and it isn't as serious. Too many are told that their biopsies are negative and they then get the NCGS label if they had positive bloods.  I consider celiac to be a spectrum disorder. Not all celiacs have gut impact or at least haven't developed it yet. I had the neuro impact and DH from shortly after I was impaled as a young child. It was many years before any severe GI issues arose.  
    •     http://www.takepart.com/article/2014/08/11/coffee-adulterated https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/how-was-your-morning-coffee-did-it-taste-like-mud-v6rfdmrrr92 http://grist.org/food/coffee-taste-like-dirt-thats-because-it-might-be/ " Using liquid chromatography, which identifies the individual chemical components of a mixture, the Brazilian scientists found wheat, soy bean, brown sugar, barley, corn, and rice commonly interspersed with the grounded coffee they tested. Large amounts of wood and dirt were also prevalent, an issue not only for purists who prefer to drink their coffee black, but for those with potential allergies to the unknown additives. As TIME reports, the scientists are identifying the rogue coffee with increasing accuracy:" http://www.bodyandsoul.com.au/health/health-news/is-there-wheat-hidden-in-your-coffee/news-story/a3d53a7c36b76156f08d89eab6a396b3   -----   I have also read other references to coffee upsetting those with celiac.   Personally I have a family history of officially diagnosed celiac even though I have never been diagnosed myself..then again Ive never been properly tested. My drs just keep saying the following symptoms are anxiety and wont refer me to a gastroenterologist for:   Loss of bowel control, pale coloured stools, severe bloating, passing undigested food, ataxia, vertigo, migraine headaches, feeling feverish, repeated ulcers on my tongue and in my mouth, feeling generally ill and sleep issues (mostly falling asleep when I dont want to but rarely insomnia).   Because they insist its anxiety as routine blood tests are normal they wont refer me to a gut dr. They did do a blood test for celiac once on my request but it came back negative. This does not phase me when it comes to my suspicians that gluten is an issue for me because:   1 I was on a gluten free diet at the time, hence why i was well enough to crawl to the gps office. 2 I have a family history of celiac 3 MY symptoms are alleviated by a gluten free, dairy free, oat free, corn free diet..and lately, coffee free it seems. Coffee has indeed become a problem for me recently. 4 I could not tolerate gluten based baby foods as an infant. I was admitted to hospital as a baby for being underweight because I was vomitting all my food up. They put me on gluten free formula and i was fine, stopped being sick and gained weight. I could have grown out of it but considering the symtpoms i get on a gluten based diet, i really doubt it.   -----   When it comes to the coffee, food manufacturers will do most anything to make profits if they think they can get away with it. We live in a world where money is most important and if they do get caught...they can always claim they have no idea how the barley got in there!    
    • If you have had a sleep study and been diagnosed, you have sleep apnea. It's definitely different than waking up to go to the bathroom. Are you using your cpap every night for The entire night. Naps too? SA can actually cause death so it's very Important for you to use it every time you sleep. Do you follow up with your doctor yearly? Sorry to sound like the SA police, but I know someone who died from it. He wasn't using his cpap anymore, thought it was uncomfortable.     What Is Sleep Apnea?   Sleep apnea (AP-ne-ah) is a common disorder in which you have one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep. Breathing pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes. They may occur 30 times or more an hour. Typically, normal breathing then starts again, sometimes with a loud snort or choking sound. Sleep apnea usually is a chronic (ongoing) condition that disrupts your sleep. When your breathing pauses or becomes shallow, you’ll often move out of deep sleep and into light sleep.
