Otherwise, it is best to just use the vinegars you listed that are gluten-free.

Heinz is one brand that labels gluted so you can use Heinz vinegar and any of their products that contain vinegar (ketchup for example) without worry.
The safety of vinegar used to be a pretty heated debate but scientists and nutritionists agree that the distilling process makes it gluten-free.
(FYI, I am a fairly new Celiac so I have been spending a great deal of time researching the diet and two suggestions I have for anyone who is searching for definate answers concerning types of food is to stick with hospital and edu sites for your information. They are usually well researched and carefully thought out answers. Also - be sure to check the date of the information. One of the not so great things about searching on the internet is that you can still find info that was posted 5 years ago and it comes up on your screen as though it were hot off the presses. )

Unfortunately, there is this persisting belief that vinegars are a problem. Other than malt vinegar, they are fine. The distilling process ensures they are gluten free.

I know that apple cider and wine vinegar is fine. I didn't know that about Balsamic. I suspect that once, when I was newly diagnosed that I had Balsamic vinegar and developed a mild wheeze. However, I can't say with certainty that it was the vinegar. I avoid it now. So when shopping for sauces do I need to look for distilled vinegar in the ingredients? I know Heinz Ketchup and Hellmann's Mayonnaise do not say distilled vinegar in the ingredients but the vinegar is distilled.
By the way, according to French's website their mustard is gluten-free.
Also, Seeds of Change makes a gluten-free rice and beans that is tasty!

Also, some inexpensive brands of balsamic vinegar may contain caramel color, which MIGHT make them non-gluten-free. I have had no trouble with "pure" balsamic vinegar.
gluten-free since November 1, 2003
