Well, you have various approaches to this....

Does white wine bother you when you drink it? The reason that I am asking is that I have heard that there is a high percentage of false positives with allergy testing.

That being said, if you don't react, it would be up to you as to how you want to deal with it.

Was red wine tested? If you tested negative on that, and react to white wine, than maybe red wine would be safe. If it wasn't, I would do some google searches about white wine allergies and see what you come up with...maybe they have the answer about red wines.

What about things like zinfindels

Also, is it the sulfites that is the problem? Or the grapes? Or what? That might help in your thought process.

I unfortunately don't have any real answers, but I understand your pain! I am no longer drinking right now because I am reacting to everything under the sun. If I were you, and got the test results back, that would be the process that goes through my head. Hope this helps...let me know what you find out. xoxo

scratch tests for foods are only 50% accurate.

i cannot drink wine because of the sulphites and casein.

and the alcohol.

but otherwise, the aforementioned ingredients.

Natlay,

Wine inherently does not have casein in it. However, many wineries use casein in the processing. Many also use eggs. (I learned this recently as I am both casein and egg intolerant).

I'm not drinking at all at this point because 1. I haven't had the time to research wines that are safe. 2. I don't know if even "safe" wines are safe for me bc I don't know if I react to sulfites, and other fun things.

Hope this helps.

wow i didnt know about the casien thing iether, fortunatly i have a lactose problem so it wont bother me too much hopefully. i wasnt tested for red wine only white which was odd :blink: i dont think i have a problem when drinking white wine but the more you frink the less you care about if you do or not ( so to speak ). i often wonderd if there was a connection between the vinegers and white wines in the malting or whatever you wanna call it. just a thought :unsure:

If you buy any appellation controlled French wine or DOP Italian then the ingredients are strictly controlled.

An exception is Bordeaux who are pretty lax over the appellations ... then you need to decide if you are buying a quality wine or a cheap one.

Bourgoyne has probably the strictest appellations where several do not allow any yeast to be added and the process has to occur naturally from the fields and winery walls. Aloxe Corton and Clos des Mouches are two examples....

Cote de Rhone wise a hermitage or crozes hermtage are also strictly controlled as is Condrieu

Most if not all good wine (excepting champagnes) are unfiltered and you can pick off whole appellations confident that quality control and following the rules is the livelyhood of the whole appellation.

Try this in the google bar :D

appellation beaune "non filtre"

However the best thing is asking the producers themselves....I really would encourage ANYONE who likes wine to try one of these... they are outstanding value with wines from 4€ a bottle though to €400 ....though you can get exceptional wines starting at 6€ .....November is the BEST time, its the first of the 2005

Steve - you're talking Euro wines here - average consumer in US is drinking wines from California, if they're American-made. Most people walk into a grocery or liquor store and choose by - not kidding here - what the label looks like and by price - most people want a decent everyday wine for under $10. And, unless we are willing to pay much more per bottle - the wines/appellations are not so strictly controlled. I am always looking for a good cheap Burgundian-style California red, or S. American or Australian red....and because I didn't PAY for wine - usually - for four years (worked at a fantastic winery), I really hate paying for it now! :angry: Also remember that people are buying Charles Shaw ("two-buck Chuck") by the case here - $1.99 a bottle and extremely bad - the white is pure skunk pi**! Blech! The reds taste like - lighter fluid. Charles Shaw is cheap juice from bad grapes, sold and created by Franzia wines - - kind of an abomination but that's what most are drinking.

Reds usually don't bother me, but whites will give me a huge headache. Yeast can be a problem in wines also and almost all are fermented wtih yeast here. Very few CA wines are unfiltered - the unfiltered chardonnays we sold were $45 and $65 per bottle....and while we felt we had bottled the golden rays of heaven (I used to tell customers that Cuvee Audrey was in fact what was poured in heaven ;) ), few could afford it. In the winery where I worked, many yeasts were used and all were purchased from France - I never had a headache from our chardonnays.

I would try some lighter reds, Taz - pinot noirs (almost impossible, though, to find a good one for less than $20 and too bad as that's my fave!), red zinfandel (not always so light but not as heavy as cab/merlot) and syrahs. I'm goign to have to break down and go to Whole Foods to get some of my favorite - used to be my every-day wine at the winery - Kali-Hart Pinot Noir - - it's about $12 and was just so yummy - the best cheap pinot I've ever had - - really wonderful black cherry with just the lightest touch of barnyard/earthiness to it....

*sigh* too bad Whole Foods is so far away or I'd go there now.

edit: having written all of the above...it just occurred to me that Taz might be in...England? oops.....makes everything (almost!) kind of irrelevant.....!!

susan,

as a wine lover (and so sad that I might not be able to tolerate alcohol...my body is revolting against me at this point), I REALLY appreciate your post! I'll keep those in mind! Thanks for sharing.

Hope that the vegan wine list helps ...

Hi Laura....you know, I had completely forgotten about egg whites (powdered) being used as a filtering agent in wines! I am not casein/egg intolerant and so don't even think about that - very good about the vegan wine list. Can't even REMEMBER if Robert Talbott wines (where I worked - that's the Kali Hart Pinot, named for their youngest daughter and SO yummy!) uses egg whites in their filtering. You could call the winery itself in Gonzalez, CA...or email - heck maybe I"ll email them myself just to see what's going on. That is a bummer though and I hope you can enjoy wines again soon....I used to be a heavy consumer of wines :ph34r: and loved them so, now, just a glass here or there and that's much better in so many ways.

:)

Serves me right for buying the cheapest sweet white wine at my supermarket yesterday. <_< Luckily I only had less then half a glass but I had unmistakable casein symptoms today....the rest of the wine went down the drain btw...

I haven't bothered with calling producers about wine, most of the time if indeed I stick to not the cheapest ones it seems to be fine. And even when it isn't, the reaction only seems to last a day or so, so I'm thinking that the amount that I'm reacting to must be truly minuscule.

I don't usually like reds, at least in my usual price range :D but someone had given us a bottle of... let me check, I saved the bottle...it says 1999, Mas de l'Ocelle, ok so I know nothing about wine but I really liked that one.

I wonder, I often like verdejo wines, and verdicchio ones, are those the same sort of grape or is it a coincidence that the names are similar? :)

It's funny, I can have a few glasses of a "safe" wine and be fine, and less half a glass of one that apparently contains casein and have a "hangover" the day after... :P

    • Gluten And Vertigo
      Christiana, I just felt to look at the site. I thought I had clicked to get email alerts. But, actually my email has been 'fritzing' sort of.  Thank you for your note. It is important for my diagnosis. I was diagnosed with chondritis of the collar bone a few months before the fall that resulted in the immobile right arm. The osteo surgeon gave me a cortosol shot that helped a lot. That MRI showed a rotator cuff tear nearly 2/3 thru the strip of tissue that connects the muscle tissue to the bone and makes the shoulder 'rotate' in place.  That was almost a year ago now. I have been learning to be very very mindful about how I use that arm, when I reach, carefully, how I rest it and sleep position. Interesting that I did see a search answer that said ' they are saying now that there could be a connection btn rotator cuff tear and inflammed collar bone. My primary doctor also said I could have an inflammed chest wall that resulted in the chondritis. I remembered that word from a child's diagnosis years ago. That was in his knees and was treated by this same osteo surgeon, by casting the legs over summer holiday, which ended in healed x-rays. That was osteo chondritis desicans. He said then, 'if it is horses, we would have to shoot them.'  I tried to get a blood test three weeks ago for the same antibody we were treating that child with thru his then pediatritian, for rheumatoid antibodies/ recurring strep throat. I had gotten a 'sort of' diagnosis, or agreement from that primary care doctor, allowing me to get the recommended antibiotics (one of the few treatments that it is allowed, because of the need to keep the hearing). But, his new nurse did not relay the request properly. I hate doctor office politics. I hope this newbie is not going to mess with this doctor's little family as well. Last month when researching Meniere's one of the things listed about it was that autoimmune disease is connected to it also. I was hurt before the falls and the inflammation and the collar bone chondritis and the rotator cuff tear. I was very very concerned about it setting off some kind of autoimmune inflammation reaction or worse that can happen when tissue cells are being repaired rapidly and it felt like lots of toxins were being cleansed and processed over a period of many months. The only similar feeling I have ever experienced was when I had a 'deep tissue massage' to release and cleanse a cortisol 'hump' I had after a prolonged period of high family stress situation. Right now, my primary (an O.D. , or osteopath) is working with me. There are two ENTs in this area he offered for Meniere's and has given me Physical Therapy at his complex for Balance Therapy. It is great that that therapist has a MIL that is also dealing with Meniere's and getting exercises from a major hospital complex in the city. I was able to give her some celiac's diagnosis information. Sounded like her MIL and her son were likely to be candidates.  I did not know what the definition was of the term 'vestibular' as in vestibular migraine, another connection to Meniere's. I just typed www.bing.com and then typed 'definition of vestibular.' That had information about the connections btn hearing and sitting positions. I will look up costochondritis. Thank you, again. Best wishes, Anne
    • What Are Your Brands & Flavors Of Gluten Free Ice Cream ?
      I don't worry about the same facility, but I check if it is on the same lines. I think it is usually a good idea to find out if things are made on shared lines. And if they are made on the same line as gluten-containing products how good is the cleaning in between? Chocolate is a good example of this. For example, I contacted a company whose chocolate I used to eat before being diagnosed and they outright told me they are not good about cleaning on shared lines and it is not safe for allergies or celiac. I have had this response from other companies as well (especially when it comes to chocolate sadly). I think this is why Godiva is not safe. Its just a good idea to check.
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      Wow you all have more balls than I do. I've been gluten free since 2007 and I'm still afraid of offending people. It gives me lots of troubles, really. I'm more like rockstarkate I guess...the "people pleasing" aspect.  I love how you all just have the flat out rule I Will Not Eat It Unless I or a Celiac Made it. (Or a trusted family member).  I still simper and grovel and cringe and apologetically turn things away.  People still put dishes in my face and say "This should be gluten free..."  and I have to awkwardly not eat it and then seem rude.  I've done the whole...checking the bottles thing too.  I do try to dart out of things more though now. I volunteered in other countries in recent years and I felt as vulnerable as all heck, having to rely on them to make food, as well as definitely feeling like I offended people who didn't get it at all. I was feeling brave when I signed up for those but after the second time I was like okay, the fear/anxiety/stress about the food is too much. I managed to dodge out of getting sick, and for the most part people humored me...but it was pretty difficult because I don't like offending people, especially other cultures, with them trying to be nice and make food for me...pretty sure I did offend people as well as annoy many others.  Anyway...no OP, you are not alone. For sure I have trust issues eating other people's food. They say they know but I do truly doubt they are as strict as I would be.   A few times I will still brave eating something...like some little mozzarella balls with vinegar...though, I did still look at the labels.  Someone had to give me a persuasive speech and show me all ingredients (just salt and pepper) after making me chicken wings once. I do tell people, basically, NOT to make me stuff. But they still do.  Another time a friend had worked really hard and was having a terrible time and offered me a burger patty when I arrived, assuring me it was gluten free. I knew I hadn't been there to watch whether she used the "bun spatula" on it or not...but I just didn't feel like giving her a fight about it since she was having a rough time and hosts like to feel they are feeding guests, blah blah. So I ate it. And got glutened. And wailed and gnashed my teeth haha. Lesson learned.  I need to stick to my guns more. I just always feel like I'm being too "difficult" as it is. But...sigh.  It is refreshing for me to read these empowered no BS responses though. You all remind me of where I'm coming from, and not that I'm just being some kind of high maintenance, rude, crazy person. You'd think after, what, nine years now, I wouldn't still be bothered by it...
    • Mashed potato soup during healing
      I was on pretty much a liquid diet for 8 months waiting for my nausea to go away completely. I mostly had mashed potato soup, 1/2 fat ice cream (mostly whey, not milk), chocolate drink (no added milk) and gummy vitamins. The soup tasted yummy and I'm still alive so I figured I'd share it for people not feeling well in the beginning. I've been noticing people with alot of trouble keeping food down in recent posts. I couldn't have milk or eggs, but the cheese in the recipe didn't bother me at all. Notice the lack of spices. Makes it easy on the stomach.   Mashed potato soup: Boiled yukon gold potatoes (5lb bag) 1 package cauliflower, steamed 4-6 slices of Land O'Lakes white American cheese 4 tablespoons butter salt 16 cups homemade chicken broth, salted   Chop steamed cauliflower into teensy bits (pureed is better). Put in mixer with butter, cheese and a potato or two. Blend while slowly adding potatoes. Keep whipping for a few minutes to insure the cauliflower and potatoes are not lumpy at all. Salt to taste.   Combine 1/2 cup mashed potatoes to 1 cup salted chicken broth. Mix with spoon until mashed potatoes have completely dissolved. Enjoy. Individual servings can be frozen.   Homemade chicken broth: makes 8 - 10 cups of broth   1 organic chicken (regular chickens are too big) 1 stalk celery 1 carrot 1 large bay leaf 1/2 package fresh thyme from the  herb section of the vegetables area   Put all ingredients in pressure cooker along with 1.5 liters water. Bring to pressure. Cook for 35 minutes. Separate broth from solids. Separate broth from fat. Add ridiculous quantities of salt until it tastes like soup. Sorry I use a salt grinder so I don't have precise salt quantities.

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
