Is Starbucks Packaged Coffee Gluten-Free?

glutenfreechart7 Gluten-Free Confidence Score: 7/10

It seems as though regular, unflavored Starbucks coffee should be gluten-free, but there is actually some debate about this (see this excellent article from Gluten Free Gigi). Coffee itself is naturally gluten-free but there is the chance for gluten cross-contamination during the production process. We do not have any solid evidence that regular, unflavored packaged Starbucks coffees contain gluten, but based on Gluten Free Gigi’s article is seems as though there are still some unanswered questions.

    Thanks for sharing the article! I think you make a sound rating here as far as the regular, unflavored roasted coffees from Starbucks goes. I do; however, caution readers to steer clear of *most* flavored coffees; however, there are some brands producing flavored beans that are gluten-free. This is one case where the consumer must be diligent in contacting the manufacturer to know for certain. 🙂 Gigi
