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!

:o

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 emailed Hornsby's cider company and they confirmed that their hard ciders are gluten free. See the following dated September 14, 2009:

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! :]

    • Hi Beachgrl, It won't hurt anything to go gluten-free now, except the possibility of getting a diagnosis of celiac disease.  When i went gluten-free, it seemed like the initial changes were spread over about 6 weeks.  I had gut spasms for that time.  And other changes, all for the better.  Initial recovery from celiac damage can take up to 18 months, so it can be a slow thing.  Some people get better much faster of course, because we are all individuals and not identical. Going gluten-free for celiac disease is a lifetime commitment though, and some people have a hard time doing that without a diagnosis.  Even minor amounts of gluten can cause us to react, so it is best to eat a very simple diet of whole foods at first.  Avoid dairy and processed foods.  I hope it works out for you.  I know some people with Crohns disease eat gluten-free and find it helps them.  Gluten is a tough thing to digest for all people, but most don't have an immune reaction to it like celiacs do.  
    • Honestly, I would not trust the school to provide a gluten-free meal except for fruit, salads, veggies, etc. I sub in a school cafeteria and I swear everything is breaded or on bread. Utensils are shared. They're very clean but unless you have a very knowledgeable person in there, I just wouldn't chance it. I found a slim Jim type snack that says gluten-free on it. If you want to give me your email or FB account, I can send you some very valuable info on 504's though. They carry the student right through college. I kept a copy of what a friend wrote about her daughter being in a sorority and just how the 504 helped immensely. But, I would definitely get one and still be prepared to pack a lunch. All our meals are delivered frozen and we just hear them up. If your school actually fixes food, that's different. 
    • Oh, I would suggest providing gluten-free goodies (e.g. Candy) or even a frozen cupcake (kept in the teacher's freezer) in the event of a party.  My daughter's classmate is severely allergic to peanuts.  Her mom did that and Abby was never left out!  😊
    • Hi Nobody, Welcome to the forum!  I noticed you said you have been avoiding wheat products.  That's good, but are you avoiding rye and barley also?  Wheat, rye, and barley are the 3 grains that cause reactions in celiac patients.  About 10% also react to oats. If you haven't had the full celiac antibodies test panel, it might be worthwhile getting that done now.  The ttg is just a basic test and is generally followed up by an endoscopy or the full celiac panel. I wouldn't worry a lot about getting cancer.  That doesn't happen often. It is possible some of the other grains you might be eating are contaminated.  A group did a test on several off the shelf products a few years ago that would not normally be thought of as having gluten and found some actually did have low levels of gluten.  Things like corn meal for example.
