Virtually no distilled vinegar is made from wheat. Even if it is, the distilling makes it gluten-free.

The veined cheese arguments is another one of those "trial and error" things.

Here are the arguments:


YES -- The yes people state that the bacteria used to make bleu cheese comes from moldy bread (which is accurate) -- the issue then becomes does the mnoldy bread infect the cheese? The yes people say it has to -- it is on the cheese and it did contain gluten at some point

NO -- These folks agree with the "yes" group in that the bacteria comes from the bread -- however, the bacteria/mold then feeds/works on the actual cheese and not the bread. Hence, the bread is used to start the process, but not to finish it.

What Science tells us - Scientific testing has shown that after the bacteria/mold has been applied to the cheese, the gluten is not carried through the process. The only gluten to be found was that of the moldy bread that was left on the actual cheese. This amount of gluten was found to be so small, it barely registered...

Furthermore, if the cheese is cleaned before it is shipped, it will have less if any gluten.

In my experience, I have not had any problems with bleu or gorogonzola cheese. I eat them all the time.

The choice is up to you...

Distilled vinegar is gluten free..

Personally, I can't imagine why anyone would purposly eat moldy cheese. That's what makes blue cheese look the way it does. If it was called "Moldy Cheese", nobody would buy it. Interesting how it's expensive too. If we find anything in the back of our refridgerator having mold on it, we toss it out. As I recall, mozzarella gets pinkish when it gets mold on it.

Of course we're still talking about consuming the milk of an animal which isn't anything like humans. If apes are supposed to related to us...well, let's not go there...(sorry, rant over)

A large number of blue or veined cheeses aren't even started on bread any more. They're started on an artificial medium.

I once read as post from somebody who knew a cheesemaker. According to the cheesemaker, even if every molecule of the starting culture were gluten, it would be less than 1 part per million. I have not researched this myself, but am merely repeating what I read at St. John's.

I love those moldy cheeses. Yum, yum.

I would not risk risk it! Have you see how much flour is in the air at a pizza joint?

I don't know about Domino's (although it would be terrific if it's true!) but I'd be careful about blue cheese. This week I almost bought a tub of crumbled blue cheese, and luckily looked at the lable....it specifically said that it contained WHEAT. Yipes! Maybe some blue cheeses add something else that makes them unsafe?

Boar's Head blue cheese is gluten-free.

My husband has been a manager at Domino's for several years. We checked with corporate to be certain the wings were okay. Here is how to do this:

When you call in, ask for a manager. Explain that you want to place an order for the wings but have an allergy to wheat. Ask the manager to request that the person handling your order wash their hands just prior to handling the wings to avoid cross contamination. If possible, order other stuff along with it so that it is worth their while to do the special handling for you. Be sure to tip well so that they remember you next time and have an incentive to go that extra mile. I would question the bleu cheese just because I can't stand the smell of the stuff, but the ranch is definitely ok.

Since my husband did not work at the store which delivers to our home, he contacted the manager there and explained the situation. We order regularly. Our son enjoys the opportunity to get something with gluten in it (even if he does have to eat it in the floor away from us) while the gluten-free folks in the house hold are satisfied as well.

Good luck.

OK, so here's a post over three years old (I see Rice Guy was in rare form :D ). I was craving hot wings because of the Frank's Hot Wing Sauce thread and conducted a search.

I must admit to a rare lapse of judgement, but a while back I ordered some pizza , cheezy bread, and hot wings for a family get-together we were having. I feel it is my duty to feed my guests, and do not limit the selection to gluten-free items. So, I go get the food, get home, everyone's chowing down, yum yum, and I look at the wings. They don't "appear" to have any flour on them (I know, that's a very stupid assumption to make). I eat one. It's pretty damn tasty. I get a little anxious and don't eat any more.

I didn't get sick (thank you GOD!). But now I'm wondering if I could get away with following cdford's advise. I pick up pizza frequently for my guests and can't help but notice the employees are usually covered with flour (why do they always wear black shirts?). Seems to me there's probably nothing more nerve racking to a Celiac than being in a fried chicken place, a pasta place, or a pizza place.

Any thoughts on this?

best regards, lm
