Is Vodka Gluten Free??? I've heard it is grain derived and I just wanted to know if there are certain brands that are gluten free.

Thanks!

I am one of the ones who reacts strongly to any grain alcohol, (I black out after 1 drink and get very sick from grain alcohol). I drink Luksusowa Polish Potato Vodka and have NO problems. I can have 2 or 3 in an evening with no ill effects at all, not even a mild hangover. There are other potato vodkas around but this brand is the least costly.

It is gluten free. I drink ketel one- it is distilled in wheat but the distillation process leaves no gluten in the end product. Other vodkas are made from corn (i think smirnoff is one) or potatoes (like Chopin) and those are definitely safe too. But i have never had a problem w/ the wheat-distilled vodkas and i drink them frequently ( i mean when i drink).

I have, however, felt sick after drinking some of the well vodka drinks in bars...i am not sure if the distillation process is not as good in cheap vodka or if it is b/c instead of drinking vodka on the rocks, i mix cheaper vodkas w/ club soda. i have heard that fountain sodas in bars can be contaminated?

The fountain sodas are very suspect, also some states require bars to use a soak with a sani-tab in the final rinse, it is not washed off afterwards. I never read the label so I have no idea what is in it. I always make them rinse my glass with plain hot water before they mix my drink and if they don't have soda in a can I drink wine.

I never thought about the soda being contaiminated but if its from the same spout...I guess it has a very likely ability to be!!

The soda spout never occured to me, either. I thought I was being careful when I'd just have a soda when out to "eat" with others. Jeesh :angry:

I also react to all grain alchol. I can find Chopin (potato vodka) in my town so that is what I drink with little to no problems. I even use it to make my own vanilla and Kaluha.

I cannot have anything from a bar tap...just enough stuff in there for contamination and I get sick every time.

Hi, could you please tell me how to make the Kaluha? I would love to try this, I seem to react to the real thing. I would love a White Russian.

I used to work in a bar and most places soak their bar guns in soap and water or bleach. The questionable things that come out of the bar gun are the juices, cranberry and orange, that is usually where i ran into the problem..However, if the bar or restaurant are "clean" then usually their soda gun is as well,

      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it.

      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

    • Gardasil And Celiac
      I have this same issue! I got gardasil in 2009 and have never been the same since. Celiac disease, thyroid problems. I used to be healthy and active and since I got that shot I have never been the same.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
