This can be a tricky question to answer. In short, not all coffees out there are gluten free. But all Barnie’s coffees are gluten free. Here’s why.
According to the Celiac Support Association, fresh brewed coffee is a good beverage option for individuals on a gluten-free plan.
However, many coffees are produced in facilities where cross-contamination with gluten foods is a possibility. Also, many instant coffees on the market contain soy products and other additives that are not allergen-free. To complicate matters even more, many of those with Celiac disease are very skeptical when it comes to flavored coffees because the flavoring could come from wheat, barely, dairy, soy or other allergens.
These are the concerns we hear from our Kitchenistas with dietary needs. And we want to inform you that all Barnie’s CoffeeKitchen coffees are gluten and allergen free!
Barnie’s coffees are packaged in allergen-free facilities, where the threat of cross-contamination is virtually nonexistent. Barnie’s new liquid instant coffee, BREWSTICKS, contains no soy or additives. It’s 100% Arabica coffee.
This weekend, I represented Barnie’s CoffeeKitchen at the Food Allergy & Celiac Convention at the always-magical Walt Disney World. Here I had the opportunity to talk with several attendees with Celiac disease or other dietary concerns. I was surprised to learn that there were several coffees out there that are not gluten and allergen free. I can understand how hard it must be to question everything you eat and drink. It made me feel great to be able to share our coffee with them, which is both safe and delicious!
Participating in the FACC over the weekend highlighted the importance of making coffees that are good our customers. We were thrilled to receive wonderful feedback and appreciation for providing coffees that are free of gluten and allergens. This serves as inspiration to always think about the health and wellness of coffee lovers everywhere. I hope we added more Kitchenistas to our family!
Here are some candids from the convention, where I shared samples of Santa’s White Christmas flavored iced coffee made with BREWSTICKS:
