That one is not safe if my memory serves me. Woodchuck has a couple that are safe but check their website I seem to remember that one wasn't. Most ciders are safe but not all.

I was also under the impression that Hornsby's is NOT okay. Strongbow and Woodchuck are.

This is great news!

It's funny, but 11 years ago dating my husband, I had my first Woodchuck and LOVED it! I never, ever, cared for beer, thinking the "carbonation" made me ill. I never got D, but intense bloating, and "rock-gut." Since being dx, I have only had mixed drinks and wine....it will be nice to try a cider again...I have stayed away because I knew not all ciders were gluten free. I'm a little lazy on the research side...I just read these posts every few weeks to stay updated.

Thanks for the info!

uh-ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

this is not good news as I just took a few swigs whilst finishing up yard work................

:huh:

so - we'll know for sure tomorrow. But - in any case - Trader Joe's cider is MUCH better than this one, FYI.

I am super-sensitive and have been drinking Hornsby's cider on occasion for about the last year and a half and have never had any problems. I do like Woodchucks better, but have always been grateful for the Hornsby's when they were all that was available, especially if it's the amber. The Ace cider I had in Florida this February was incredible!

I routinely drank Hornsby's for the last three months with no problem. Maybe for the supersensitive it might be a problem???

This just irks me. Any part gluten is not gluten free. I call this the dog turd thinking by the people who made the this law.

(dog turd thinking-if I put a dog turd on your salad and take it off, will you mind eating that salad?) Love whom ever thought his up.

LMAO!!!! Thank you so much for this analogy, I will have to use it daily! And good to know about Hornsby's as I declined buying it this evening b/c I was unsure of the "caramel coloring" in the ingredients. So thanks everyone! :]

    • Yes like a protein powder. I visit a local store there is so many brands and on every brand have write gluten free.that's way I confused which one is best any suggestions ! 
    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.

    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
