I do okay with apple cider vinegar as long as I stick with Heinz. I am okay with Heinz Ketchup, pickles, relish etc. If I eat any other brand of vinegar such as in a bbq sauce or other pickle brands, I will get sick.

I had problems with all vinegars. Even apple cider vinegar was a problem. I make my own vinegar now. It's very easy. I just take Woodchuck cider and leave it out with a wire screen over the top for a couple months. It gets naturally fermented. Regular vinegar has fermenting agents added to it and their source might be a bit cc'ed, only enough for us super sensitives to worry about.

Have you ever tried rice vinegar?

I think I'm having a problem with distilled white and maybe corn. I ate some salsa the other day and it really bothered me. When I called the company they said corn vinegar...

I still have to try apple cider vinegar yet...

That was about 3 years ago, but I think I tried wine, rice, coconut, apple cider, and some other vinegars. They all got me, but I fine with homemade wine, pear, raspberry or apple cider vinegar.

I ate some pickled herring recently and didn't feel well afterward. Thought it might be the vinegar. Has anyone else tried that?

I read that hydrolyzed wheat protein is used to "clarify" some wine, (and therefore, probably vinegar).

I can eat organic Paul Neuman vinegars, both red and balsamic.

Does the US require the labelling of the type of vinegar contained in a product (I can't remember :P ) I get so disgusted here when the ingredients list just says "vinegar" because so much of our vinegar is malt vinegar - in fact I don't think my mom used any other kind. I had no idea that vinegar could be made from corn :o What a horrifying thought. :unsure:

Would you kindly post that source? :)

Re: wine. Here's just a couple studies on the feasibility of fining with plant proteins, but they mention it:

It sounds like hydrolyzed wheat might be in wine making now, since the mad cow disease scare, considering these studies are almost a decade old and were looking at the possibility.

EDIT: this vinyard mentions OTHERS using wheat as a fining agent, claiming that they don't do this themselves.

I've bombed out with all vinegars I've tried, too: coconut, grain-based, apple cider, rice - got sick on 'em all.

But on researching, I did find out that they all had yeast added. And I also found out that most yeast companies add corn starch, or other starches, to the yeast just before drying. Makes it easier to form it into yeast cakes and such. And that goes right into the vinegar, after distillation. <_< I suspect that may be where my problem lies, but I'm not certain.

There's a lot of different versions out there, but it's not too hard. Just take apple cider and put it in a well-washed glass or plastic (not metal) container, keep it out of the light for the most part, let it have an open top (with something on to keep the bugs out, like cheesecloth or mesh). It needs to be between 65-80 F, as I recall - I kept mine about 70-75 F. Mix it with your hand the first few days. It needs natural yeast and bacteria to help it ferment, and your hand is full of 'em. :-)

Then leave it there for a month or two. It should smell yeasty at first, and then start to smell sour. A 'mother' of vinegar forms on top, which is what should happen, so no worries.

At the end, just take out the mother of vinegar and store the vinegar in the fridge. You can pasteurize it and keep it in sterilized jars in the cupboard, but I didn't bother with that, myself. I wanted the probiotic properties preserved. Plus, I'm lazy, LOL.

You can do this from just juiced apples, too. It first turns to apple cider, then the vinegar, if you do the exact same procedure.

It doesn't always work every single time, but we had good luck our first try. Now I'm trying grapefruit vinegar.

I just recently realized I'm extremely sensitive to wheat and am possibly celiac, but..

I've noticed a lot of times when I have ketchup, I develop one or two small blisters or sores in the back (sides) of my mouth.

This does not happen with tomato sauce, though.

Also, I get blisters with at least a couple different kinds of medical tape. (they're bad ones, too) And my skin turns different colors from that.

(just thought the blister thing was related)

Sorry I missed this!

Actually, I made it from a 'food scraps vinegar' recipe on-line. Usually, you use the grapefruit peels and add a little juice and sugar and water. I can't do the sugar, so I added more of the juice - we'll see if it works. The sugar is an important part of the vinegar, for a food source. For the apple cider vinegar, I even understand that winter/fall apple varieties make better vinegar, because they are higher in natural sugars. I'm not sure if my fruit scrap vinegar actually turned out - it was faltering the last I looked, so I'm thinking I'll have to find a sugar source somehow, if I want it to work. :-(

Hi there,

Just thought i'd share my info. This may be a no duh but not all ketchup is gluten free, gotta be careful with some of the lesser brands, I seem to be okay with heinz. Also I'm a big fan of pickles, I found a brand at wholefoods "Bubbies" they are pretty delicious and they do not use vinegar they use citric acid. I do not know if citric acid could be used as a replacement for vinegar in general?

hope this was helpful :-)

    • Well....one common symptom that most celiacs have when they are diagnosed (or undiagnosed) is anxiety.  So, there is a risk of cancers, but science has demonstrated that that risk goes down on a gluten free diet (if you have celiac disease).  In goes down to the same risk as those without celiac disease.   I kind of was a basket case.  I drive my family a bit crazy because I was anxious.  I felt a bit stupid too.  I guess I had a little brain fog going on too.  All that resolved after I healed. Welcome to the fourum.  Read our Newbie 101 thread under "Coping" (pinned at the top of the page) and learn about hidden sources of gluten and cross contamination.  I think most of us do not worry about cancer. We mourn the freedom to eat anything anywhere!   I did not have swollen lymph nodes, but I am sure others have and they did not have cancer.  Hopefully, they will chime in and set your mind at ease.  If not, you can search for "lymph nodes" at the top of the page (little magnifying glass).  There are lots of members with the same issue!  
    • I was recently diagnosed as having celiac and to be honest the part I'm having the most trouble with isn't the change in food or lifestyle. I'm really upset about what I've read about the risk of cancer increasing with celiac disease. I think this is playing into my fears because I currently have lymph nodes all over my body-my Doctor says they are not considered swollen or concerning, but I don't usually feel nodes. The lymph nodes and horrible diarrhea for the last 3 weeks were what got me into the the doctor for lab work. My blood work came great so I'm wondering if anyone else experienced lymph nodes reacting when they found out they were celiac? Also how do you deal with anxiety surrounding the increased risk of cancer? Thanks!
    • Wow I'm gonna be a skinny Minnie in no time rather than a bloated and confused Thankyou I'll try look at these images 4 days gluten free
    • Hi Natalie, The dairy should be eliminated completely for a few weeks at least.  It can be hard to tell what food is causing symptoms at first.  Dairy is a known problem for many people, even those who don't have celiac disease.  Carbs are bad if you are having digestive upset and bloating.  The carbs feed the bacteria that make gas in your gut and that can cause symptoms.  Everybody is an individual though so you may not have bad symptoms.  But when you are trying to heal fast and aren't sure what's causing the problems, eliminating some common problem foods makes sense.  There is no reason to reduce the dairy and carbs slowly though.  They can be cut out completely right away.  You should be able to tell if it's helping within a week or so.  Eliminating them is no problem as long as you don't blow away!    
    • I think it won't hurt a bit to eliminate dairy for a while. As far as carbs, that's kind of an individual thing. Some do better without them or with limiting them and some, like myself, have to have carbs. I am skinny, have a high metabolism & would dry up & blow away without my carbs & I eat lots of carbs. They don't bother me. Keeping a food & symptom log can be a great help especially in the beginning.
