12 Yr Old Daughter Just Diagnosed
Posted 08 May 2004 - 04:52 AM
My daughter is 12 and has just been diagnoed w/Celiac. She has small stature and no other symptoms. Her nutritionist suggested we start replacing what she eats now with gluten-free products. Can I trust commercial salad dressings?? I guess I'm not clear on the vinegar part. Can anyone help or suggest a good creamy dressing?
Is there any list anywhere that lists gluten free items by brand name and category?? Thanks

You might also have some luck if you go right to the manufacturer's website and see if they list their gluten-free products there.
Clan Thompson, I think, also distributes a printed list. They have a great site, so go poke around there and good luck!

All vinegars, EXCEPT malt vinegar, are okay on the gluten-free diet. You can use distilled vinegar, cider vinegar, balsamic vinegar, wine vinegar. The only one you cannot use on the gluten-free diet is malt vinegar.
There was some "discussion" for many years that distilled vinegar is not okay, however, this is not correct. Distilled vinegar is fine, and is recognized as such by all leading authorities. In fact, Volume 8 #3 of "Gluten Free Living" magazine did an entire article about this.
Hope this helps.

Was the statement "all leading experts" in the article you mentioned in your post? When I see the word all and leading in statements like that it raises a red flag for me. There is still disagreement about distilled vinegar. It brings to mind the discussion for years about hormone replacement therapy when millions of women took it and then came "the study" that ended it for many. During those years there were many experts who cautioned more judious use of HRT.
Using products with distilled vinegar or not is a decision each person with celiac disease needs to make on their own with as many of the facts available to them as possible.

In addition, the FDA requires that where a label simply states "vinegar" it is apple cider vinegar, which even those who doubt, cannot question that it is gluten free.
