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
Marketing

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

Your welcome - it took over a week for them to reply. Guess it takes time for emails to come from Sweden.

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.
