So glad you survived. :) I've used them and never had any problems. If you have some left over which I always do, they freeze nicely. I freeze them in an ice cube tray and the amount is usually just right for most recipes.

This brand of Chipotles is NOT gluten free.  I contacted the manufacturer and they confirmed that they are not gluten free.  She suspicious ingredients are spices AND vinegar.  Vinegar is often made from grain, so it cannot be assumed that vinegar is safe.  You must have gotten lucky if this didn't make you sick.  I wouldn't chance it again.  ;)

I use them all the time - well... As much as I can.

Spices cannot, legally, hide a grain. Vinegar, except " malt vinegar" , is not a concern. Obviously they don't know what is gluten or they are being advised to make a CYA statement because they don't test for gluten. I don't have a link to the US rule about spices but you could google it. I know it's been linked to on c.com many times.

Is vinegar safe for those with celiac disease?

Vinegar is a solution made of acetic acid and flavoring materials such as apples, grapes, grain and molasses. For example, cider vinegar is made from apple juice; malt vinegar is made from barley malt, Balsamic vinegar is made from grapes.

Distilled vinegars (including vinegars in foods and condiments) are gluten-free because the distillation process filters out the large gluten proteins so they do not pass through to the end product making the finished liquid gluten free.

Patients with celiac disease should not be concerned about distilled white vinegar or foods such as pickles, which may contain it. The exception to this rule is malt vinegar, which is not distilled, and therefore is not safe to consume.

Vinegar as defined by the US Food & Drug Administration:

Vinegar, Cider Vinegar, Apple Vinegar: made from juice of apples

Wine Vinegar, Grape Vinegar: made from juice of grapes

Malt Vinegar: infusion of barley malt or cereals that have been converted to malt

Spirit Vinegar, Distilled Vinegar, Grain Vinegar: dilute distilled alcohol

    • I am sorry that you are sick!   Unfortunately, all celiac testing requires you to be on gluten.  😔.   Testing is usually not over until you get an actual diagnosis, but it appears that you may very well have celiac disease.    Here is more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://theceliacmd.com/2015/06/six-reasons-to-test-for-celiac-disease-before-starting-a-gluten-free-diet-3/ in the meantime, you can eliminate dairy products temporarily.  It may provide some relief.  
    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!
