After the positive feedback I received from the Pepsi Gluten Free post earlier in the month I decided it would make sense to write a Coca Cola one too. Today I emailed Coca Cola for a list of their gluten free products.
I should have remembered that the company Coca Cola makes a lot more than just coke, fanta and sprite. They sent me a huge list including all the various juices, teas, flavoured water and sports drinks which they produce but it was so long that for the purposes of this post I wil focus on Coke soft drinks/soda. If you’re looking for the gluten free status of a different drink manufactured by Cola Cola you can check out their full gluten free list here.
This information relates to Coca Cola soft drinks in the US. They confirm that the following products are gluten free.
Caffeine free Barq’s Root Beer, Diet Barq’s French Vanilla Crème Soda, Diet Barq’s Red Creme Soda, Diet Barq’s Root Beet, Barq’s French Vanilla Crème Soda, Barq’s Red Crème Soda, Barq’s Root Beet
Caffeine free Coca-Cola, Caffeine free Diet Coke, Cherry Coke, Cherry Coke Zero, Coca-Cola, Coca-Cola with Lime, Coca-Cola Zero, Diet Cherry Coke, Diet Coke, Diet Coke with Lime, Diet Coke Sweetened with Splenda, Diet Vanilla Coke, Vanilla Coke, Vanilla Coke Zero
Fanta Apple, Fanta Grape, Fanta Grapefruit, Fanta Orange, Fanta Peach, Fanta Pineapple, Fanta Strawberry, Fanta Orange Zero
Sprite, Sprite Green, Sprite Zero

For those of you in the UK or Ireland, the ingredient FAQ section of the UK Coca Cola website answers questions on ingredients in Coca Cola products and whether they are suitable for those of us with dietary requirements.
One of their FAQs is ‘Are your drinks suitable for those with a gluten intolerance or coeliac disease? The answer is “Yes. None of the Coca‑Cola or Schweppes brands contain gluten, milk, egg or soya” I also emailed Coca Cola UK and got the same response from customer service that none of the Coca Cola or Schweppes products contain any gluten at all. This includes Dr. Pepper, Lilt, Oasis and all variants of Schweppes. Great.
