Absolut Vodka

To all:

Here is an official response Absolute and its good news:

Dear Kevin,

Thanks for your email and your interest in ABSOLUT VODKA.

The ingredients for the production of ABSOLUT VODKA are grain (winter wheat),

sweetening enzymes (in the mashing process), yeast and water from our own well.

It does not contain any gluten as it is removed in the production process. For

the production of flavored vodka, only natural ingredients from berries, fruits

and spices are used.

Best regards,

Åsa Edlind

Assistant

Thank-you so much for posting this! I have been trying to figure this out for a long time and never got a response. I am so excited to see that I can still have my beloved vodka. :D

Enjoy!!!

Absolut Vanilla & Diet Coke is a great drink.

Hmm... I've got a three day weekend coming up. And if my old van doesn't cost me too much on Fri - I may have to experiment. Seeing as smirnoff twists are out.

I wish I could say that I could safely drink this. I and my son have DH in addition to the celiac and no matter how hard I try to tell my body it won't react to distilled grains it continues to do so. I might as well have some italian bread. Don't go overboard when you first try, you may not react but until you know for sure be cautious.

Sorry you body will not let you indulge.

In a previous post I had listed the "no gluten in distilled alcohol" as a theory but I was quickly corrected by other poster's that it is a fact.

I guess everyone's body is different so as the previous poster stated be cautious.

Is this true for ALL distilled grains, like corn. If so, it's not a gluten problem.

We can't have smirnoff twists? :(

Where did you find this out?

I've been drinking them without a reaction but I certainly don't want to be having them if they are off-limits.

Please let me know

thanks!

I react to distilled grain products too. The processing is still debated, and my body's reaction tells me its not for me. You aren't alone.

It's a malt beverage and as far as I can tell it's off the list. I will try to find out definitly this weekend. I have had them with no telltale reaction, but for now better safe than sorry. My problem is that my body doesn't react right away like lots of people here, so if I do have D and fatigue I can't really pin point the source.

I have been recently diagnosed so i'm still a little new at this...

so even though absolut has wheat in it, there's no gluten because it was removed in the process and we won't get sick? i'm a little bit skeptical only because i was just told WHEAT was to be avoided at all costs!

Yes , the basic idea is that the distilling proccess removes the gluten. Some ppl still react thogh, so need to be careful.

I have not studies, or tests to link to, just basing that on the calims off ppl here.

    • I havent used it, not much of a baker tbh, but this one looks good: http://alittleinsanity.com/gluten-free-pie-crust-recipe/
    • As you say, there's no test, it's diagnosed by exclusion, so there's no metrics to check to assess compliance other than anecdotal response to symptoms. Conversely, I've not seen anything that says that NCGI can resolved or be cured either.  This paper gives a good summation.  Basically, there's not much research period! That is changing though, I think there's research underway which could help give answers.
    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
