Gluten/sulfite Free Alcohol
0

12 posts in this topic

:P Hi everyone!

Well, tonight I have 2 work Christmas parites! :D

And I'm just wondering..........I read that rum and tequilla are okay for Celiacs because they contain no gluten grains at all. I'm also very intolerant to the sulfites in wine. So, do you guys know if this is true about rum and tequilla? Could it possibly be safe for me?

I'm kind of scared because I know that last time I went out I had vodka (absolute) with cranberry and woke up at night with THE WORSE BACK PAINS (like in my kidney area) and sometimes when I drink, that happens, but sometimes, I'm completely fine. I also, of course, KNOW, beer bothers me. If I have one sip I'm in tears for hours, but that's obviously the barley in it. Anyway, I guess I'm just asking if anyone has had any good experiences with certain alcohol. Not that I'm going to go nuts, but I would like to have one drink to celebrate the holidays! :P

But of course, if I can't, I can't and it's not worth killing myself over it and being sick for another week! But the thing is, I never ever have tequilla or rum when I go out, it's usually vodka or wine (well not anymore of course, I'm done with that like I'm done with gluten!) So maybe those won't bother me? But I'm just wondering what your opinions are. Thanks!!! :D

I don't know of a tequila or rum that has gluten. Bacardi is definitely gluten-free. Smirnoff vodka is corn-based. I won't get into the whole distilling thing.

Okay, good, thanks!

Also, would anyone know if any other alcohol besides wine has sulfite in it? :huh:

Thanks!

Hmmm,

That's a tough one...I have never heard of Vodkas containing sulfites. I thought the sulfites were placed in the wine as perservatives for the naturally acidic/sugary grape base....

Here is an article on wine sulfites..

http://waterhouse.ucdavis.edu/winecomp/so2.htm

I do know that Rain vodka is organic and made without pesticides or chemical perservatives...

Hope this helps..

Okay, I just didn't know for sure. Hopefully though it's just the gluten or sulfite in these drinks that bothers me. Could it be anything else? I hope not!

And is that Rain vodka gluten free as well?

Alcohol and caffeine are two very strong irritants to the gut. I would definately avoid alcohol with all the problems you've been having....its not going to help with healing whether its got gluten in it or not. Thats just my 2 cents. :)

If you have leaky gut the alcohol will make you feel worse so if you do end up drinking and feel bad because of it...it doesnt necessarily mean you were glutened.

Without getting into an in-depth scientific discussion, all distilled alcohols are gluten-free -- some people react to the grain based ones, but it has been proven that the gluten protein is not able to make it through the distillation process (due to its size)...

Having said that, I drink Ketel One all the time. I like Rain as well...

This is another one of those trial and error things for folks...

BTW, others I have known with sulfite problems report that they can drink organic wine without any trouble. This may be a "your mileage may vary" bit of advice, however.

I mainly drink Ketel One with 7 Up (Sprite) and lemon now. I used to drink Stoli & 7 or beer but I'm not sure if Stoli is safe for us and obviously beer is not.

I don't know of vodka that contains sulfites, but I know that it is the mixers that you have to watch out for. I have a sulfite allergy too, this has been helpful:

    • puffiness in face
      The puffiness in my face went down a lot after I went gluten free. Old photos shock me sometimes now! Your doctor should be able to test you for food intolerance? Here in UK I did tests for wheat, nut, mustard etc. You can do a blood test and there's also skin prick tests I think, am sure others here would know more.  Good luck    
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      Here in the UK I can't eat Lay's owned Walkers crisps as even the ones without gluten ingredients can cause a reaction. I read it was something to do with their production processes. Looks like others have same problems too:  
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Don't apologise! Not needed here at least where people know exactly what you're going through. As Cyclinglady says, you're now in a grieving process for the former, carefree attitude to food you've now lost. You may find this helpful in understanding the psychological journey you're on: http://psychcentral.com/lib/the-5-stages-of-loss-and-grief/ It WILL get better. Eating cleanly is very good advice as you heal but you can then find the replacement snacks and treats that are safe to eat.  I now know which chocolate bars are ok, which brands of crisps (chips) are safe etc.  I don't drink now, but I did find there were some fantastic ciders that I could tolerate and you've always got wine! In fact one of the weirder discoveries post gluten was that my past (vicious) hangovers were far more about gluten reactions than the alcohol itself. A cider hangover is a breeze in comparison All the best!  
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      I ate some baked lays last night and felt very sick all night and haven't been feeling great all day today. Other than that I didn't eat anything different from what I normally eat and there was no risk of cross contamination with anything.. These were the only thing I had that was different. They're labeled gluten free so I figured it would be okay, but I started feeling sick pretty soon after eating them. I'm not sure if it's another ingredient in them or what (and i know it's not the soy).. Has anyone else had a reaction to lays potato chips?
    • Symptoms In Toddlers?
      Welcome Ashley! Here are the current tests.  The DGP versions seem to work a bit better than the TTG in small children.  So, ask for the complete panel (and get it all in one stick....my 15 year still hates to get blood drawn ! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your doctors are wrong!  They must be reading old medical text books.  Not all kids or people have failure to thrive!  You can even be symptom free!. I was anemic and had no intestinal issues when I was diagnosed.  celiac disease affects everyone differently and that's probably why so many folks are not diagnosed. Your kids (parents, siblings too) should be tested every few years (sooner if symptoms develop) per all the leading celiac researchers/doctors if a first-degree relative has celiac disease (like you!)  celiac disease can develop at any age! Hope this helps!

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
