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

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.

    • Weird Reaction
      Hi Richie I've put the above in quotes as you have described in the first and second sentence how I felt six months prior to my DX.   In my own case, in the end I concluded it was anxiety after consulting Dr Google!  It was such an alien feeling to me, I couldn't even think what it was, particularly as life was pretty good at the time.  Anxiety is a problem for a lot of celiacs prior to diagnosis, and often after glutening after going gluten-free. You mention breathlessness, this of course can be for reasons such as anaemia (again a common celiac problem, I had this prior to DX) but of course also can arise if you are anxious.   Re 'gluten free' - Flowerqueen is right, from what I have read on this forum some people really do seem to react with less than 20ppm.    But perhaps some other things to consider...  could there be something wrong with the batch you have consumed?  Might it be worth contacting the manufacturers?   That said, you could , as Flowerqueen suggests, have a problem with another ingredient, in the product or something else you consumed. In the past I have had a terrible reaction - fever, trembling, diarrhea, stomach cramps that lasted up to three hours the last three times I ate..... broccoli, of all things.    Who would have thought that possible?  I have often thought I should try it again, just to be sure it was the broccoli, as it is a 'super food' that I ought to have in my diet, that I like very much, but the thought of having such a reaction again has put me off. I do hope you will find some answers soon.

      Hi Richie,  I've not heard of this drink before, as I live in the UK, but any drink made from barley is something you should avoid.  There's a brand in the UK that makes lemon and barley water and orange and barley water and Coeliac UK say it is not safe for people with Coeliac disease.  (Our labelling laws in the UK changed a couple of years ago).  You say the drink you had was under 20 ppm, which is acceptable (usually) for coeliacs, but a lot of people are super-sensitive to gluten even in very small amounts.  I recently had a similar problem with something which was supposed to be okay for coeliacs, but when I checked the website of the product, for all it said there were no gluten containing ingredients, it was produced in an area where gluten was present, which was enough to put me off and must admit, the symptoms you describe sound very much like I experienced at the time.  (Personally I'd be avoiding that particular drink like the plague from now on). One other thing though,  have you checked the ingredients to see if there could be anything else in it which you may be intolerant to?

      I have not. I'll talk to my doctor about it
    • High Positive Test Results - Your thoughts please...
      With blood results like these, your husband most definitely has Celiac Disease.  The biopsy is just to check to see how much damage.  Keep in mind that even with high, high test scores like these, damage can still be patchy. Although I would be very surprised if they didn't find enough with numbers like these!  Thank goodness he was able to have a definitive diagnosis and reason for his symptoms!  Good luck!

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
