Kiki....wine is unequivocably gluten free.  This has been discussed many times previously on this forum and I can assure you....wine is gluten-free.  Some people may disagree but all the celiac organizations out there....the reputable ones, do not list wine on the forbidden lists and state wine is safe so go ahead and enjoy your Zinfandel.  It will not affect your blood work.  :)

Wine is gluten free, but that does not mean that your body can process it successfully. Some can, some can't.

Kiki, there have definitely been a number of discussions regarding this on this forum.

I would recommend doing a search of the forum to read them and draw your own conclusions.

I drink wine and my repeat antibody tests are fine.  I would think that the major Celiac Centers and organizations would warn us if wine was not safe for Celiacs.

Tricia Thompson's study showing negative tests with detection limits of 5 and 10 ppm of wine aged in oak barrels sealed with wheat paste: https://www.glutenfr...g/blog.php?id=8

 

My experience is that it isn't a problem unless you are extremely sensitive.  As stated by others, I can't know for sure that any reaction I have is to gluten, just like anyone else here.  All I can know is that all those symptoms that went away when I got diagnosed and went gluten-free come back when I eat or drink certain things.

I drink wine -- it is really my only indulgence -- I cannot drink white and some reds -- but it has nothing to do with gluten -- rather sulphites and histamine.

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

Same here.  And I must admit, I drink a glass of wine every night with my dinner.  I love my red wine.  My antibody tests were pegged when I was diagnosed and my last one came in at a 1...which is as low as humanly possible to achieve. If there were any amount of gluten in wine, this would not be possible.

 

I answered your other post, Kiki, regarding your high levels.  It may not be your diet so make sure the doctor did the correct testing and go from there!

Thank you all for your help and I do a lot of research on this site but it is helpful when you really get to talk to people who are going through what you are so thanks!

And Gemini I will check out the testing part also!

I used to always drink arbor mist strawberry wine. After cutting out gluten I found I felt like I was hit by a truck the morning following arbor mist, my stomach hurt and I was in the bathroom often. I switched to "real" wine at the advice of the owner of the liquor store and I have felt much better. That being said some of the white wines still made me feel  really foggy the next day, others don't. I don't know if this lend credence to the how they are stored theory? but i would stick with pure wines (beware "wine drinks" coolers etc), and keep track of any brand that caused you to feel glutened. I'm not an expert on liquor I barely know what half the things are in the store but the owner seemed to have a lot of gluten-free customers and said many report getting sick with certain wines or "wine like drinks" (he said anything made in a day and not aged isn't wine haha referring to my arbor mist question) and he saw some consistency in the complaints of real wines making him wonder if some have contamination issues.

Some think many wines have gluten; if so, please note each batch of wine may vary in ppm. You can contact the manufacturer, or run your own elisa test. http://www.drvino.co...uten-free-wine/

This standard of 20 ppm of gluten as not showing symptoms of damage: is there really a safe limit, now that we know of the extent of neurologic and other "hidden" or "slowly accreting" health problems? Has anyone actually experimented with a product certified 20 ppm, and if so, what happened? 100 ppm?

Hmmm...you know, if you folks who drink wine got together, you could do your own label of gluten free wine, called "celiac.com's finest".
