I'm trying to start a gluten free diet and meeting with a lot of success. One thing I'm running into though, is lack of confidence in what I can drink. Is soda off limits? I myself don't have celiac but my beloved does and I'm trying to go gluten-free with her, to avoid future complications, and to make the transition easier for her as well. Also, would juice (the frozen canned kind one gets from a grocery store) be alright?

Soda is almost always gluten-free, although there might be something out there. All variations of Coke and Pepsi are definitely gluten-free. I believe that all the other sodas made by those two companies are gluten-free as well. Caramel color does not contain gluten.

Fruit juices, likewise, are usually safe, but there are some exceptions, so be sure to read the ingredients carefully. If I recall, some Minute Maid products contain gluten.

Thanks for your tips! :)

Me and my beloved are both under legal drinking age so I'm not really worried about alcohol, and we don't plan on drinking at any time in the future, but I have read that in other articles and I appreciate the information provided by everyone ^_^.

Are there any specific ingredients I should look for? I know of a few, but I'm sure there are more than the few that I know of already.

Try these links for useful information:

Unsafe ingredients.

Safe ingredients.

Here's a list of companies that have a clear gluten policy. If you don't see "wheat, rye, barley, barley malt, oats" on the labels, its not there, or hidden in "flavors, starches, etc."

Always read the label.

I like well or spring water best of all. If it is kept in the refrigerator it is deliciously cool. It is low in sugar (unlike fruit juice) high in hydrating qualities. Herbal tea can be warming on the cool days coming our way. I just use loose leaf to avoid tea bags. I have most recently been really enjoying coconut water that hydrates me better than water. It is also high in potassium and magnesium needed by recovering celiac. I enjoy the taste of it, but if you just expect it to taste like water is better than if you compare it to a sweet drink.

Thanks a lot for the helpful links and the list of ingredients! I've already been on the lookout for whole grain and nearly everything else grain and oats and such. I've been reading labels on just about everything ^_^ also, me and my father went to a little grocery store just off-campus and it has a whole wall devoted to gluten-free stuff :). Great to see that my dietary menu really isn't going to shrink at all. If anything, it'll grow!

The only ones I'm aware of are ones we wouldn't buy anyway like the flavoured coffees, vanilla flavoured milk which contains malt from barley, beer is almost always out, except for a few brands which make gluten free beer. I saw Up n Go are in the fridge section now with the flavoured milks, these contain cereals that contain gluten.

    • This is why many of us stick to our own "Trusted Brands" of things we know are safe, and only buy stuff with the offical certification for gluten free. NOTE also in the US they do not HAVE to tell you their facility also processes wheat on the label, just if the actual product contains it in the ingredients. But many will just to avoid legal mumbo jumbo if they somehow have CC issues. Saying the facility also contains/processes wheat is just them covering themselves if people get sick from it.
    • I make my own mini loafs of a simple almond,coconut,apple sauce blend for dense, bland bread gluten free, and have my pastor bless them. I then keep them in the freezer and bring a piece with me for communion.
    • I don't have milk in liquid form any more, so I switched to coconut flavoured milk (rice based) for cereal, really like it. Then I take coffee black which I've also adjusted to. For an occasional treat I'll have a soy latte, tastes a bit nutty but I'm used to it now and it's as much about the visual treat of sitting in a coffee shop with a big milky coffee anyway. The last time I had a real milk latte I got some huge spots a day or so later on my chest and that was the clearest signal that milk and my skin weren't a good mix. What I haven't done is stop eating products that have milk listed as an ingredient. If I do that I lose so many of the nice gluten-free replacements  biscuits ice cream etc. I know I could try and get dairy free, but it's expensive and difficult to find. So maybe I should try doing that and see how I go... It's funny, a few years ago I used to have a 'healthy'  breakfast of porridge, milk, with a big spoon full of wheat bran for fibre which I convinced myself I needed for digestion. I used to feel pleased with myself for having a good start to the day when I subsequently found it was the worst combination of foods I could possibly have devised. I think If I ate that right now I'd explode!
    • I and many others here have been there and sympathise! Keep on keepin' on, it won't be long now before you can start feeling better. In the meantime, if there's a cheesecake, pastry etc that you want to say goodbye to, now's the time...
    • I'm not Catholic but I remember reading an article about gluten-free host wafers. Looks like this church has developed some guidelines you could show to your priest? https://www.dioslc.org/ministries/disabilities/holy-communion-for-people-with-celiac-disease
