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 :-)

    • In addition to cheese made with yogurt, hard cheeses like cheddar, romano, parmesaen etc are also going to be lactose free. Eggs are also a good source of protein if you eat them. Do bear in mind that celiac can really mess with your head. It can cause depression and anxiety that can get worse for a short time when you first go gluten free. your life is not over by any means. The reason why you see more people on boards and in forums that are having problems is because most when they heal go on with their lives. We don't hear from them with the exception of a few that stick around to help people that are still struggling. Hang in there it will get better.
    • You are sick.  Depression and anxiety are symtoms of celiac disease (and many other illnesses).  It is hard now to look forward and imagine a great life, but it is possible.  I think you are already in the thick of the grieving process right now.  Reaching out to this forum can be very healing emotional (it is not just all common sense advice about gluten-free food!).  I did not say not to exercise, but to do it gently.  This is not the time to train for a marathon or triathlon!   The SCD Lifestyle site....it is all about the money.  Seriously.  They are selling a book. 
    • They are big on selling books -. They try to spam a lot forums and FB groups. why can't you eat nuts, nut flours, quinoa, hummus and beans? I think I missed that. Those are a good source of protein.  If you can't digest lactose look for a lactose free cheese - like one made from yogurt. at first,I thought life was over.  But with a few years of experience, I have found it isn't that big of a deal. It helps to have an attitude of "I am not here for the food.  I am here for the wine ( or the company . ). Also helps to not care what people think - "I don't care if you think it's odd that I brought my own lunch to the funeral luncheon. "( And it helps that my lunch looks better than theirs lol.)
    • Gracey, It am a mother and I am going to give you some  valuable advice.  You need to keep and document everything related to your health.  Every lab test result, notes from your doctor's visits, etc.  Why?  Because only you are your best health advocate (except for your mom).  Doctors come and go, but it is up to you to manage your health.   When I changed insurance and doctors, I had copies of all my medical records in hand.  My new PCP was impressed.  There was no doubt that I had celiac disease, fractures, Hashimoto's and diabetes, anemia, etc.  I had physical proof.  As an result, she was quick to refer me to a new GI  and order tests to measure my progress  (e.g bone scans).  My family health history chart helped not just me, but other family members.   So, find out if biopsies were taken during your endoscopy.  Get the pathologist's report.  See if your doctor checked for other issues besides celiac disease.   Hugs!  
    • I don't do grieving, bad enough for something that's been taken away in the past but to know my future is pretty much gone now just feels too much. The only time I've forgot about the unfolding nightmare was during my hour or so of sport so need to cling onto that at the moment or I fear going to a very dark place indeed. Yup that SCD site is terrifying, still can't make up my mind if they're giving out useful information to genuinely help people or using scare tactics to sell their books etc.
