Teeccino and Gluten
Although Teeccino contains barley, an independent lab at UNL specialising in gluten testing found NO detectable levels of gluten in brewed Teeccino. Although gluten is present in barley, it most likely does not extract out of the barley using conventional coffee brewing techniques. Gluten is not extracted by boiling water although it can be extracted using ethanol alcohol, which of course is not present in Teeccino.
For gluten-sensitive customers, we recommend using a paper filter in a drip coffee maker to brew Teeccino so that no particles of Teeccino can leak into the liquid. Teeccino tea bags are also perfect for gluten-sensitive customers because the Teeccino grounds are enclosed completely. Since ingesting small particles of Teeccino grounds could cause a reaction to gluten, we don’t recommend reusable filters since they are not as reliable as paper filters in preventing particles from going through the filter.
ALL of Teeccino’s DANDELION Herbal Coffees are made without barley and are designed expressly for those gluten-sensitive people who are concerned that they may still be sensitive to the barley in Teeccino’s original flavours. Teeccino Dandelion Herbal Coffees are the best option for ensuring there is no gluten reaction.
