Gluten/sulfite Free Alcohol

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..

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:

    • I havent used it, not much of a baker tbh, but this one looks good: http://alittleinsanity.com/gluten-free-pie-crust-recipe/
    • As you say, there's no test, it's diagnosed by exclusion, so there's no metrics to check to assess compliance other than anecdotal response to symptoms. Conversely, I've not seen anything that says that NCGI can resolved or be cured either.  This paper gives a good summation.  Basically, there's not much research period! That is changing though, I think there's research underway which could help give answers.
    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
