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?

    • Update: for most accurate results, I am eating one piece of white wheat bread a day and am hating the symptoms. Less than two weeks until the endoscopy so I'm hanging in there.
    • Gaerty, I am glad to hear that you've ruled out the worst stuff. That at least helps clear any anxiety or worry you might have. I know that would clear up mine. I have good news! About three days ago my splinter hemorrhages cleared up 100%! The one that was on my right thumb was long and was there for about 2 to 3 months. I started taking this Vitamin C supplement 1000 mg once a day about 3 weeks ago. Whats crazy is that on the day I started the Vitamin C I noticed a small hemorrhage cropping up on my left thumb. It was very small. By day 7 of taking the vitamin C the one on the left thumb started growing out. By the second week I noticed the one on the right thumb shrunk drastically and by the end of week 3 they were all gone. By day 10 I also started taking 25mg of iron because all my muscles keep twitching. My B's and Magnesium came back good 5 months ago. I heard low iron can cause that symptom as well. So thought I'd give it a try.  I am not sure if it was a combo of the C and Iron or just the C that helped clear the splinter hemorrhages but for sure it was one of those things because they are the only things I have changed recently with supplements in the past 30 days.  
    • The nasal spray is safe, per the 2017 gluten-free drug list, but check the list as there are a few different manufacturers.   http://www.glutenfreedrugs.com/newlist.htm Claritin is fine.   Get a Nedi pot.  Helps tremendously.  It is safe.....100% gluten free.  Just use pre-boiled and the cooled water.  
    • Thanks Ravenswood. I need the strength and encouragement to keep going. The last sessions fall out was 4 days of my body revolting on a nervous system level.  I'll look into your acupressure book suggestion. I have done sinus acupressure for myself and my daughter for years but did not explore more.  In the past when gluten-free my fibromyalgia symptoms improved but since they come back the concern is it might be actual fibromyalgia.  After 2016 I found out I have Barrett s esophagus, fibromyalgia, additional food intolerance plus the gluten. I had in my head I was ncgs and it was all related to  that and leaky gut that occurred after my challenge., So I wasn't prepared to digest all the above. Pun intended. Thanks for the encouragement Awol
    • So I'll try to keep this short and sweet.  I'm a 25yo male and have had GI issues for about 7 years. Through many years and many doctors visits, I've gotten potential diagnoses of IBS, post-infectious IBS (d/t a Giardia infection in 2014), small intestine bacterial overgrowth, GERD, and even a strong suspicion of inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's/Ulcerative Colitis). I've had two colonoscopies (no biopsies taken) and one EGD (biopsies only taken of STOMACH which showed chronic gastritis, not small intestine). Pretty much all of my tests have come back "normal."  I'll start by saying that back in 2014ish my blood results for Celiac were negative. My GI symptoms vary and fluctuate greatly... When I'm really struggling, I'll have chronic diarrhea, debilitating reflux, hours of burping after eating anything, epigastric and lower right quadrant abdominal pain, severe fatigue (nearly passing out), migraines, awful brain fog / depression, unilateral eye pain and photophobia, mouth ulcers, glossitis (tongue inflammation), and occasional bloody mucus in my stool if I'm extremely flared.   So my GP recommended I try a gluten-free diet after my IBD panel came back as negative. I reluctantly gave it a shot. I was gluten-free for about 2 months - slowly but surely, my chronic diarrhea relented, fatigue lifted, and my reflux nearly disappeared (to the point of considering stopping my omeprazole). Since eating gluten-free is so difficult, I decided to try a 3-day gluten challenge to see if gluten truly was the culprit. I ate gluten products 2-3 times/day for 3 days. It made my reflux a bit worse and gave me some pain, but nothing severe. My tongue however started progressively burning/stinging that week.  The BAD symptoms came about 2 weeks after my first gluten exposure... My acid reflux became MUCH MUCH worse, despite medication. I lost about 7 pounds over 3 weeks from not wanting to eat. I had much more abdominal pain. My tongue became very inflamed and sensitive to eating/drinking. I got mouth ulcers. I became very depressed, irritable, and brain-fogged out of NOWHERE. I was nauseous and having headaches. It was NOT fun. That's when I thought, "Ok, I am definitely more sensitive to gluten than I thought." That was about 6 weeks ago and my stomach is still feeling the effects of those 3 days. So, my questions: Has anyone experienced a similar story? Has anyone had lower GI bleeding with celiac? For those who have Celiac, are your symptoms typically delayed like that (2-3 weeks)? I know NCGS is supposed to have much more immediate symptom-onset. Has anyone tested negative to blood work, but positive on small intestine biopsies?
