Frank's Red Hot - Is The Distilled Vinegar From Corn Or Wheat?
0

17 posts in this topic

hi everyone, this is my first post!  :rolleyes:

 

so I love frank's red hot, and also happen to be very congested, so I figured it'd be a good idea to cook dinner with that tonight! BUT - distilled vinegar is one of the ingredients and unfortunately I am one of those that is extra sensitive and will react if the vinegar is distilled from wheat, as opposed to corn. 

 

I called the company but they're already closed for the day so I figured I'd post on here to see if anyone already knew. 

 

Thanks!

It is scientifically impossible for gluten to be in distilled anything. Enjoy!

Addy is giving you the plain truth..  :)

 

"The number one frequently asked question concerns vinegar.  All vinegars except for malt vinegar are gluten-free. Distilled vinegar can be derived from a variety of ingredients including apples and rice, and from grains such as corn or wheat. Although distilled vinegar can be made from wheat, the distillation process removes the gluten protein, and the final product does not contain any residual gluten. However, malt vinegar is made from fermented barley and is not distilled; therefore, malt vinegar contains a small amount of gluten and must be avoided by those following the gluten-free diet."

in response to the comments so far - I appreciate the feed back, but regardless of whether or not there truly is no gluten post distillation process I still react. That is to anything originally from a gluten containing grain, whether it be distilled white vinegar or whiskey.. if it came from wheat/barley/rye/etc.,  I WILL react! 

 

 

So again, if anyone simply knows what grain(s) the vinegar in frank's red hot comes from, the info would be much appreciated! :)

Then I guess your option is to get ahold of the company tomorrow.

 

Good Luck

and PS

 

I used Frank's to make wings for super bowl. No problem whatsoever and I am pretty sensitive to gluten.

 

and their website says this:

 

: Yes, Frank's RedHot Original, XTRA Hot, Buffalo Wings Sauce, Chile 'n Lime™, Hot Buffalo Wings Sauce, Kickin' BBQ Sauce, Sweet Chili Sauce and Ketchup Style Sauce are gluten free. None of the ingredients used to make Frank's RedHot wing sauce contain any gluten.

I know the super sensitives on this forum probably won't eat it, no matter what grain the vinegar is made from. They eat almost no processed foods at all because of their sensitivities.

we use Frank's  as well with no problems.. so  maybe you are super  sensitive or  it  could be  another ingredient  that you are  reacting to  but  of  course if it bothers  you avoid it....there  are lots of foods  I react to  that have nothing to do with gluten... I  someties  can eat them on their own  but add another food  & I'm sick...

Welcome to the forum, Meowndy.  A fellow crazy cat lady?  When you get a chance take a look at some of the discussions in the Super sensitive category.  There are some things there that you may find helpful since the regular Celiac rules sometimes aren't enough for that group of people.

While it may be impossible for gluten to get distilled, it is not impossible for gluten in the facility to contaminated the distillate.  The fact that many producers list allergens in a facility on the label would indicate that it can be a problem.  It is very hard to be certain where a reaction originates.

That may be true (all things seem possible, I suppose) but the fact remains.

 

No gluten in the product.

 

People who are very sensitive to gluten are saying "I have used it and it's not a problem"

 

We could argue "possibilities" all day long", I suppose.

 

But I'm not willing to do that. I gave up arguing. It's great for reducing stress. ^_^

Franks Red Hot Mixed with Ranch makes a great buffalo dipping sauce for pretty much anything :)  Especially chicken.

My daughter is in the same boat with ketchup, and was told Heinz ketchup was completely gluten free. Distilled vinegar regardless of gluten or not bothers her. I did an experiment and made my own Heinz ketchup at home (YouTube), same ingredients and spices, but used apple cider vinegar. No reaction. So then I made pasta sauce that she normally reacts too with apple cider vinegar, and no reaction again. I'll bet there's a recipe out there for your same hot sauce you could make yourself using apple cider vinegar instead.

yes, this is exactly what I'm going through. Great idea, making your own. Maybe i'll make my own and bottle it up so I don't have to worry about it!

Thanks a lot!

I grew hot peppers (habanero), roasted them in olive oil, added some more olive oil, put the whole thing in a blender and I have enough hot sauce in the freezer to last a long time.

If you guys are new to celiac it just might be that your stomachs can't handle it right now, not that you are sensitive to it.  Give your stomach a chance to heal.
