smirnof vodka is on a lot of the gluten free lists i have looked at, but when i went to buy it today the bottle said it was from grain alchohol. i ended up getting monopolowa, but it was a bit pricier then smirnof. I also love that smirnoff makes different flavors!

ALL Smirnoff vodka (except the malt drink Smirnoff Ice) is gluten-free. The grain it's made from is corn.

In reality, ALL distilling alcohol is gluten-free unless gluten is added after the distilling. Distliing takes out the harmful proteins. I know several extremely sensitive people who drink wheat- or rye-based liquors.

I emailed Smirnoff and they said their Vodkas are gluten-free (but they did not tell me what grains). Smirnoff Ice is not gluten-free. I thought I kept the email but I can not find it.

I just had two mixed drinks this week using Smirnoff and OJ. I got really sick the next morning. I was in and out of the bathroom probably 20 times. I'm going to stay away from hard alcohol;my stomach can't take it. Has anyone else gotten really sick after drinking a small quanity of alcohol? Just wandering if I'm the only one this has happened to.

Thanks

I used to drink all my buddies under the table pre-diagnosis days (all 100 lbs. of me back then). Now, 30 lbs. later and with a healed gut, I'll have two drinks and feel drunk as a skunk. I've had lots of problems with wine lately (perhaps the sulfites?) but I'm also EXTREMELY sensitive-I haven't found a juice yet that I can tolerate-but I did have Smirnoff Triple Distilled 2 days ago-straight-and had no problems with it. Smirnoff is distilled from corn-I saw the grain thing on the back of the bottle and freaked after I bought it-but my boyfriend checked their website.
As for getting drunk easier, I've read that we absorb lots more alcohol now that we're healed (hence the getting drunk quicker thing).
Also-Ramapo Valley gluten-free beer is GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Good luck-

could someone suggest a good red wine that they haven't had any problems with? I bought one bottle recently, and the company told me they use regular flour in the processing of their wine, which turned me off to trying it. any suggestions?

Flour in the processing of wine? Somebody there doesn't know what they're talking about. I've never, ever heard of a wine that wasn't gluten-free.

The lady I spoke to said they use flour to "hold together the barrels that they then pour the wine into, and some of the flour could have seeped into the wine in the barrel." I know it probably isn't a big deal anyway, but I'm so sensitive to even traces of gluten I got freaked out by her answer. Everything I've been reading says wines are ok, though, so I guess I should relax! Now if only I could get a straight answer on whether cigarettes are, in fact, gluten-free! :)

Falesco Vitiano
Umbria (Italy) 2000 - about $10-$15 a bottle

(I think the last post was recommending Rosemount Estate Shiraz - also very good for the $$, but the other is my favorite!)

Gillian, Which winery said they use flour? Husband is very gluten senstitive and we would have to avoid them.

Thanks, Debbie

Husband has Celiac Disease and
Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -
The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis
Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,
most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as
being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."
Serious Depressive state ensued
Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003
Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.
Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle
Developed neuropathy in 2005
Now has lymphadema 2006
It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

The wine I'd stay away from is Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi, since they told me about the flour used in the barrels.

I stumbled upon your site by accident, as I was trying to find out about Smirnoff.
Good to know that it is G,F.
If anyone is coming to New Zealand on vacation, there is G,F beer here too (only found 1 so far)
