Beverages- Gluten And Soy Free
0

5 posts in this topic

I am hoping someone here could help me out with finding Soy and Gluten free alcoholic beverages. Is it just wine I can have or are there some cocktails I can have mixed up for me at the bar? I'd like to see some cans not cannots. I know beer, whiskey, rye, vodka and things mixed into coke are out. I know wine is just fine but I'm bored of wine and want something girly and fancy- any suggestions?

I am fairly new to Celiac Disease and have been learning to deal with it for about 10 months now. I too am sensitive to soy and dairy so I feel your pain, but from what I have researched not all wines are infact gluten free. Some corks may have CC and the wines themselves get CC from where they are stored. I only stick to Agave Tequilas... But if anyone knows of any other liquors that are 100% gluten-free let me know... Vegas trip in July (=

Titos vodka is distilled 6 times and the label says "gluten free" it is reasonably priced and a really good taste to it, very very smooth.....I love this vodka!

I have never had a problem with mixed drinks-- but I usually mix my own and don't use mixes. My husband and I killed the bottle of bourbon a couple of days ago. :ph34r: I only use agave tequila, but that's just cause I'm a purist with just about anything that I consume. When I get a drink out, it's usually a margarita. They're my fave. :rolleyes:

There is gluten-free beer available, but not always when you're out and about. I'd say be more careful of the mixers.

Wines are different. I've never thought I've been glutened by wine, but there are some wines that make my skin crawl after one sip. I'm pretty sure that's the sulfites or tannins. So we kind of stick to the same brands.

And I am pretty darn sensitive to both gluten and soy.

There are some gluten-free beers out there including redbridge which is made by budweiser and seems to be the most popular. Most whiskey, vodkas and brandys are fine, I personally have never had a reaction to any of them. Google gluten-free beverages to get a complete list.

    • Just wanted to add, that when my friends or family want to eat at a restaurant that I am not sure about, I bring some snacks and then order a drink.  It is all about the company, not the food.  
    • Based on the information you have posted today, the most likely probable reason for your being ill is that you are getting glutened!  Here is a biggie....does your hubby brush his teeth prior to kissing you?  Seriously, it can happen, but going out to eat a lot.....that can be just as bad!  We eat at restaurants that have been approved by celiacs (websites).  Just because that offer a gluten free menu does not mean that they understand about cross contamination.  
    • I got glutened last summer.  Heck, I do not even know what glutened me, but I suspect two products that my gluten-free hubby never consumed (he is my canary).  My symptoms were so different from when I was diagnosed (just had anemia then).  My GI thought I had SIBO or something else, but I asked for a celiac panel.  Yep, I had been Glutened!  Took me three months to recover and another three to regain lost weight.  Yeah, I picked up another health issue on the way (hives, rashes, swelling, itching, ab pain, vomiting, and fainting.)   I did not eat out for one year!  Only this summer, I did.  Was it worth the risk?  You bet!  Three weeks in Europe.  Fortunately,  7 days was on a cruise and Celebrity did a great job.  Italy was so celiac-savvy and I did my research and found places recommended by other celiacs in Spain, France and Poland.  If not, we bought cold food at the market and had a picnic.   I am home.  Will I eat out?  Probably not.  I have a busy Fall ahead of me (High School....football, marching band, volunteer positions, house projects, and work).  I can not afford to be sick.   Ah, I will eat out this Thanksgiving break.  My favorite restaurant is 100% gluten free in Tucson, AZ.   Maybe I will discover another gluten-free restaurant closer to home! 
    • I do est out occasionally - but not indiscriminately.  I am careful to choose places that under stand gluten free.  And places that the food is naturally gluten-free, helps, too.  Celiacs can't just eat something that should be gluten-free and hope it is.  We have to use some common sense and ask questions.  
    • You are right that the next step is an endoscopy, which still is the "gold standard" in diagnosing celiac disease.   However, for various reasons the endoscopy is not done because financial contraints  or long wait times (up to a year!), or too ill to proceed.   You have two positives.  You only need one positive to move forward.    The TTg tests  do not need to be positive for a diagnosis (which requires a positive on an antibodies test which you had and an endoscopy).  My TTg tests were negative and I only had a positive on the DGP IGA, yet biopsies revealed a Marsh Stage IIIB (moderate to severe damage. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Unless your PCP is a celiac expert (unlikely), I would insist on a GI consult.   Please find one who is celiac-savvy.   keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete (biopsies done).  You never know if lab results are going to get lost.  Besides any celiac testing requires the patient to be on a gluten diet.  In the meantime, keep on researching.  Only YOU can be your best health advocate!
