White Wine

16 posts in this topic

Hi,

I've been gluten-free for about a year and would like to try drinking some white wine. I'm not sure whether there are some additives I should know about. Is all wine gluten-free? Can you suggest some gluten-free brands?

Thank you,

Jen

I don't know any brands who add gluten but the best way to find out is call a few companies and ask.

I would think that most wines are gluten free. Since you have not had any wine in some time, I would start out slow. Enjoy, but slowly. :)

Thanks for your replies. I can't imagine that gluten would be added to wine, but you never know. Have you had any reactions to wine?

Thanks,

Jen

Some people have problems with wine, but it is not gluten. I think it is the sufites? You might wan't to try an organic wine. They do not contain sulfites.

Enjoy!

I don't know of any wines that contain gluten but if any did I might guess that it was those that had an added flavor like peach or berry. Gget a good quality bottle and enjoy a glass! Organics are great- we have a winery native to our area that makes great wines!

I thought grapes & wine contained natural sulfites-- remember that from another thread. Anyone know?

I think there are naturally occuring sulfites in wine. The differences is with the organic they do not add any? Is this right?

The only wine I found that has gluten is some Ports so don't drink those without checking them.

in the beginning of my gluten-free life, i stuck with sutter home & gallo wines. i have come to learn from several different sources that all white wine is gluten free. my favorites (for at home are mondavi and vendage). but it's quite nice to go out and order a drink without hundreds of questions and special concessions to be made. i simply ask for a white wine and have had no problems. for crazier nights - i go with bacardi "o" and 7-up. but mostly stick with wine due to having less of a hangover! enjoy!

Wow, I'm shocked about Port. I'm going to have to check on this. My boyfriend and I have had several varieties on various occasions and I haven't had a problem yet. I guess I'll have to be more vigilant in calling first.

I did some research and found out that wines wouldn't "contain" gluten, but might be filtered through grains to eliminate sediment (for white wines). Some are filtered through coal, some through grains, some through screens, but not metal, because that changes the wines aging process. The cheaper ones use grain, but even that is rare now. That might explain why SOME people get sick SOME of the time.

Hi Jen, Some wines do have gluten in them, althought if you get their phone number off the bottle and call they can usually inform you. I have been glutenfree for bout 5 years and have found some really good wine. All Barefoot wines are gluten-free.I know ladybug is gluten-free but have never been able to find it.Bonterra is an excellent gluten-free wine both red and white.These wines are not expensive so if your looking for the pricier ones cant help ya. Good luck.

Hi,

If you look at the labelling forum, you will find a discussion of this. There are two ways allergens can get into wine. There are fining agents that take sediment out. This can be a form of clay, egg, casein, or some part of a fish. This is why some wines are considered vegan and some aren't. Some say they have reacted to fining agents before. I haven't noticed anything myself ... but then, any reaction I might have been blaming on something else :huh:

I haven't heard of grain as a fining system or anything special about port, or white wine versus red wine. I'm not an expert, though. I just read one article.

The way I've read that gluten MIGHT get into wine is if it is kept in barrels using a wheat-based glue. I haven't seen anyone say they reacted to this, though.

The FDA has a proposal out now to require labeling of such allergens. The vintners are opposing it. They say no one has been proven to react to these things or even if the stuff exists in the final product.

    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      Look into The Paleo Approach by Sara Ballentyne, PhD.  Great resource and will probably answer your questions.  I have the same problem. You have to really read labels.  The only coconut milk I can use is an organic canned one.  Others have too many ingredients that are problematic.  For now, stay with meat and vegetables as someone else has recommended.  If rice works for you, great.  If not, winter squash is good.  The diet change is overwhelming at first but then it starts to make sense.  The one good thing about an intolerance versus allergy is the possibility of someday being able to add it back into your diet once your gut has healed.
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      I went gluten free about a month ago, and was finally feeling *great* last week when wham -- my well-meaning Dad cooked me dinner and forgot to check the ingredients on the fish sauce he used. The upside of being glutened for the first time is that, after a couple weeks of feeling good, I feel like I can discern the symptoms a lot better now. I've noticed that the worst part, aside from the nausea, is the "brain fog," but I'm curious if my experience of brain fog is the same as or similar to what other people are feeling. For me, it becomes almost physically painful to concentrate on anything. If I try to read a book, or watch a TV show, it makes me feel dizzy, overwhelmed, and nauseous. For a couple days, I feel like all I can do is try to stay still and do as little as possible while I wait it out. It feels similar to anxiety, but not quite the same, and none of the usual tricks for getting through a panic attack help. Do any of you experience brain fog in a similar way? Where it basically makes you feel sick to try and concentrate on anything, even fun and relaxing things?
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      I've never gone fructose free so can't help much with that.  But any fruit is probably a problem.  If you are serious about avoiding fructose you could do a search and print out a list of foods to avoid. http://www.mayoclinic.org/fructose-intolerance/expert-answers/faq-20058097 Yes, it very possible to have multiple food intolerance issues.  Many people have multiple food intolerances.  It might help to avoid any foods that are sweet for now.  Meat and most veggies are probably the way to go.  You may want to get some jerky to eat for snacks.  Peanuts might be ok but you'll need to verify that.  Boiled eggs are probably ok.  Most soda would be a no-no.

      Hi Courtney, You asked about dairy, and RMJ got it right.  Celiac disease destroys the villi lining of the small intestine.  Those villi make the lactase enzyme we need to digest dairy. Sigmoid colon thickening could be related to diverticulitis.  Which according to Wiki is a fairly common condition but doesn't always cause symptoms.  Diverticulitis can cause a problem if there is an infection though.  The sigmoid colon is part of the large intestine.  Celiac disease affects the small intestine, so celiac isn't likely involved.  I am not sure why the resident suggested celiac, unless there were some other reason to do so.  Possibly the weight loss, which could be explained by celiac disease.  Thickening of the colon may happen with Crohn's disease also.  And I'm not sure about UCD (ulcerative colitis disease) but it might cause that also, not sure https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diverticulosis https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sigmoid_colon http://biology-pages.info/G/GITract.html#pancreas http://www.ccfa.org/what-are-crohns-and-colitis/what-is-ulcerative-colitis/

      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.
