Smirnoff Vodka
0

18 posts in this topic

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-

Nadia

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

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

My family owns a vineyard in tuscany and I've never heard of flour being used at any point of any process. if that helps.

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)

Which one? O'Briens?? There is another but I forget the name, not being a great beer drinker (and Yes!, I am a Kiwi can you believe?) but I believe it is better than O'Briens.

By the way, welcome to the forum. You will find lots of helpful stuff here, even Down Under stuff :blink:

I know it has been quite some time since you posted this, but just wanted to say, I just bought Hornsby's for the first time last saturday and it now says on the box "gluten free".  And....it was pretty good.  I really like the Bold Rock, but the Hornsby's was sweeter, so if you like wine go for that one.

Hon, the person you are replying to posted back in 2004. I sincerely doubt she will see it. Just so you know.

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
