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 :-)

    • Hello I'm happy to join, any help is greatly appreciated as it can be difficult by times for sure. Unfortunately, I have been told my doctor has definitely not been doing anything correctly and very backwards about Alot of things. I live in canada, and there are celiac support groups I have found but I am about 2 hours away from any. I live in a pretty rural area. Although,  I have still received some help from them , they prefer a diagnosis before helping out to much. My doctor has me on a waiting list to see a gastrointestinal specialist but whenever I called her office to inquire about an appointment time I was told there was a very long wait and that I was considered to be a non emergency. So I am waiting to get an appointment. I have seen a dermatoligist for some of my rashes and she said it was dermatitis and gave me different creams for them.  It is frustrating because I don't know how to go about getting a actual diagnosis besides this biopsy. I was told to request a different specialist, but supposedly there is a waiting period for most in our area. 
    • Thanks for all of the replies. I've just found out I'm not getting to see a dietician because of not having a definite diagnosis which is another blow. I've had loads of bloods done but they just say they're all normal. I did have low vitamin D and high parathyroid but it's sorted itself out after a course of high dose vitamin D and they're not checking it again for a year. No chance of getting referred to endocrinology, gastro won't do it and neither will my gp. I've tried giving up coffee and all fizzy juice and it hasn't made a difference. I'm exhausted and scared and still have no clue what to do next. My gp has zero experience dealing with this type of thing - last time I was there she said it could be because I've restricted my diet too much and I should eat more gluten-free replacement products - everything I've read online says this is the worst thing to do! I'm asking for a copy of the last blood results this week so I can go through them myself but other than that I'm pretty stuck. 
    • I really am iffy on talking about this side of my gluten issues, I think I am about to ruin my reputation on this forum coming about as some extreme crazy guy saying this but I wanted to get this off my chest and perhaps see if anyone else might share a similar trauma. I get emotional recalling it, this side of my reactions, as it is most ingrained and very traumatizing experience, and I am not proud of it as the mentality I have now disgust me but I am going to come out about it. One of the scariest things in this world is when your own mind turns against you, when you can not think about what you want to think about, when you can not do what you know you should be able to do. When I got glutened really bad these where things I felt with my own mind would start looping, and thoughts would not come together. I would loose comprehension, feel like I know I should be able to think about something but my mind was not working. The same thing looped over and over and over like a broken record, This led to anger, anxiety, depression, panic, top it off with loss of feeling in my hands and feet, and the pains in the gut......it was a nightmare. I would go as far as beating my head against walls and punching them out of frustration as to why my own body and mind where not working, I just wanted it to end the pain to stop. I still have scars on my fist from punching into a nail in a stud once and kept going.....I scared everyone and myself distanced my self from loved ones. And started running a bucket list accepting that I was going to die soon. Hell to this day parts of the brain damage seem to be permanent as I can no longer do computer programing or some forms of math, they just no longer make any sense or connect. Then we learned what was causing it, and once the symptoms started to fade, I would get very angry if someone in the shared house did something stupid and got me sick again. The fear of going back to that caused violent and drastic actions to get away from what was making me sick. The sheer fear of my own mind turning on me led me to drastic actions to prevent it, throwing everything away I thought could make me sick, making sure no one else used that kitchen, used freezer paper and gloves when fixing my foods and working in there. I really destroyed and burned all bridges I had then and alienated myself from others. In the end it motivated me to learn how to cook, to get and renovate my own apartment in a building downtown, and start a business to pay for my new diet, by selling safe food to others with this issues locally at farmer markets. But it changed me on a very deep level, that traumatic experience to this day I have a issue looking at others and dealing with other humans who eat that stuff.......the stuff that breaks my mind and body so horrifically. If I have to compare it to something its like watching aliens drinking antifreeze and eating poison.....it causes a subconscious level of disgust and slight envy. I really can not even look at the stuff without recall what it does and feeling a twitch. I know I am the alien here, but it feels vise versa, and I look down on the normal people as odd creatures.  I go to the store and find myself overly avoiding contamination, keeping stuff in my own bags, asking the cashier to scan and bag it as I pass it not letting it touch that flour I see on the belt. I am hyper sensitive to the stuff I know and that fear semi dominates my mind as crazy as it sounds.  I am recovering and am forcing myself to try to mingle with other humans overlooking that one thing, but that deep rooted trauma still flares up as a protective measure especially around foods.  I could talk on and on about the other side effects but this one is the hardest to talk about it, and I feel others might be able to relate to it.    
    • Time.  You need time to heal.  Yeah, I am like a broken record!  😄 So...Lycra is your best friend for now (that and old baggy sweats!).  Hang in there!  Hugs!     
    • So far dairy seems to be OK, as are eggs. I like canned chickpeas so will carry on with those. Beans I had ruled out at one point with the doctor's recommendation to go with the low FODMAPs diet but will reintroduce those now I know it probably wasn't that causing the problems.
