Gluten Free Cola

3 Comments 11 June 2007

6/11/07  I was recently asked a question about the gluten free status of Coca Cola and Pepsi Cola. That’s a great question; all beverages with artificial coloring is suspect.

I e-mailed Coca Cola and got a detailed response. Short answer: all products are gluten free. Click here if you wish to read the whole e-mail; you may be surprised at the large number of products produced by Coca Cola.

I found Pepsi’s answer in the Frequently Asked Questions section of their site. "There is no gluten in any Pepsi product."

    Look likes it’s not true. I just found an article that explains everything : http://www.glutenfreeclub.com/articles/caramel.html

    If we believe this page, US and canadian’s Coke contains more than 20ppm gluten which might be a problem for some people. And I’m pretty sure the composition change depending on the country, due to legislation’s restriction.

    agreed with nakolah. coke says they conform to codex standards of less than 200 ppm being gluten-free. for myself and a few other celiacs i know, that is way too much gluten, and we have horrible reactions to coke products.

    I have even gotten unmistakably gluten-sick (as evidenced by the distinct oily bowel secretions)from products carried by Costco and other places that are labeled at 20ppm or lower. I think it depends on your level of sensitivity. In my case, I have zero tolerance. I keep wondering why it is that we must put all this crap in our foods in the first place. It certainly makes eating incredibly difficult for me and others like me! Thanks for the link…well written, though I still caution people about even the smallest amounts, regardless of what the FDA deems “safe”.
