  • Coffee and gluten/grains?

    Someone sent me this:
    Gluten Issues or Celiac? Don’t Drink Coffee!

    Discuss. Personally she isn't quoting any research and I have never found coffee to exacerbate (or improve) my IBD nor have I ever heard anyone say it has.

    Ohhhh goddammit!

    Coffee was the one thing I had left...
    Gave up chocolate and gave up tea because I'm a walking time bomb for kidney stones... gave up all the other bad** habits... except for one or two lovely cups of coffee 4-5 days a week because it's freaking delicious.


    And now that's gonna cause autoimmune problems too!
    I want more information.

    **bad- chocolate, tea, and coffee are not really "bad"... they have wonderful properties when consumed in moderation... by people who can process them properly and who don't have medical issues evidently. Goddammit!

      Don't believe everything you read. Coffee is my line in the sand.

        I've given up everything else... and had great positive results with my autoimmune issues.

        I will likely be drinking my coffee while I do further research on this one though...
        I will only give up this last comfort very begrudgingly.

            I'm less complex. I just need coffee, chocolate, and tequila.

                I dunno if it is because I am gluten sensitive or plain coffee-sensitive, but I feel the best when I don't drink coffee. I don't like the idea of giving up tea, but maybe I should do that too. Tea prompts me to snack anyway (I love 'tea with something' in the evening).

                    For years, I played the 'let's find the least damaging snack to have with tea after supper', and maybe the way to go is to give up tea & just drink water and broth. I am trying to stop playing the games with food, and it looks like one of the good venues to pursue.

                    To clarify, coffee impacts my mood & energy swings and sleep. I think it also contributes a lot to bladder problems.

                    Now with teas, I drink green and herbals, and what I am wondering is if I am getting some odd chemicals along with the leaves and for the bagged teas, hell knows what goes into them at all. And tea would be one thing I have never tried to drop. Sounds like a good experiment to me.

                      I get bloated when I drink coffee. It might just be the quality of coffee that I normally get outside of home or the small amount of casein in the cream (although I sometimes drink it black), but I think I have a cross-reaction with them as gluten.

                        Honestly, research has shown that coffee can have a positive impact on those who are prone to colon cancer. My gluten and dairy intolerance seem to have come along with other issues that tell me (and my dr.) I am at increased risk of colon cancer so I drink coffee for medicinal purposes (That's my excuse and I am sticking to it Truly, I have never noticed any connection between coffee and my gluten intolerance. I do get bloating if I have cream in my coffee but not if I have coconut milk or almond milk.

                          for me replace the scotch with bourbon and barbells with walks in the woods and add chocolate

                              Coffee for me is like chocolate for some people.

                              Coffee good. No coffee bad. Bad coffee is worse than no coffee.
