I thought this posted before, but apparently not...unless I didn't look hard enough.

Thank you for your inquiry concerning potential allergic reaction to

gluten in our cordial products.

Our cordials are made with distilled spirits that are primarily made

from a corn base. They may also from time to time, contain small

amounts of small grains such as wheat or rye. It is known that Gluten

can be found in the small grains such as rye, barley, oats, etc.

However, it is generally accepted that the process of distillation

excludes gluten in the finished product.

People with celiac disease may have a permanent intolerance to gluten.

Jim Beam Brands does not advise legal age adults whether or not to drink

this is a decision you may want to discuss with your physician if you

have questions. Your physician may be able to provide personalized

advice about this issue based on the ingredients and processes that go

into making our cordials.

Thank you for your inquiry about our products.

Sincerely,

Beth LaCaeyse

Customer Service Department

What do you think? Worth the risk?

This is the same thing as the question about whether distilling makes vinegar started from wheat gluten-free. Every thing I've seen said it does. I don't worry any more about vinegar (except malt vinegar) or distilled spirits.

I know the view on vinegar/alcohol is that the distilling process makes it "gluten free".  However, I react to it if it's not distilled from corn, rice or potatoes.  I know I'm in the minority but there those of us out there that the distillation process doesn't make it safe.

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      ...and CoQ10 deficiencies can occur in those taking statin drugs.  Really important to monitor that if you are on statins.

      I guess you must have to be a member then. I don't know because I am a member. It doesn't cost anything & I've never gotten any junk mail from them or anything unpleasant.  Gee, I didn't even think about that when I posted the link. OOPS! Let me know if you need me to copy & paste it because I will if you want.

      Hey, do you have to be a member of Medscape to see the article?  I could not get in pass the sign-in page.  
    • Starting out
      Ugh!  Run from that doctor.  Are you located on Mars?  Kidding aside, here's the deal.  If you go gluten free just to test it out and you feel good, then you might think you have a gluten issue.   A few months or a year go by and you realize that this is HARD.  REALLY HARD.  So, you start to cheat.  You get sloppy.  You start sharing a toaster.  Your symptoms come back, but you don't worry about it or maybe you start to get violently ill.  Symptoms so different from your old symptoms that you think you must have something else.  (You could be the type of person who makes a decision and sticks with it.  But those are rare folks.)   I could go on with more stories, but type in lymphoma in our forum's search box.  Look at member's who were misdirected by their physicians and who have had celiac disease all along.  Now they are dealing with cancer.   It is not my intent to scare you into thinking you have cancer.  The odds of you having it are slim and none.  I am trying to scare you into finding another doctor who really CARES about you and follows a normal standard level of care (like reading currant medical journals or checking Dr. Google, like my ER neighbor doctor does because he can not know everything!) It's just a simple blood test.  So easy.  If negative, then give the diet a try!
    • "Celiac disease prevents absorption of iron"
      Well, you are no longer anemic, so that's great!  As long as you are healed, you should be able to absorb iron easily.   Of course, there could be other issues that would prevent you from absorbing iron as villi damage can occur from many things other than celiac disease.   Want to know for sure where you stand?  Ask your doctor to check your iron and iron store levels the next time you have a physical.

      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!
