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

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.

    • could be from your neck, or it is, literally, in your head. perhaps a scan is needed.
    • The anxiety thing is there I take teas, and supplements along with CBD oil to help with it, and long walks and exercise when I get antsy. As for the human interaction it is a mix of other mental issues, and the way I feel about people who can eat gluten. If they are not eating I have no issue talking with people. I mentioned I have issues accepting them as the same species when I see them eating. My reaction to gluten is so ingrained in me that it is not a food but a poison, that watching others eat it causes a subconscious reaction where I find myself avoiding them and looking down on them like something from another planet. I end up disgusted with them and walking away, I will go out of my way to avoid people and places where foods like this are present. This is my TRAUMA part of the gluten exposure, and one of the big things I am trying to address in my life right now. I know it is irrational to do so but I end up doing it, I have never cared about others race, religion, or looks, but if I see them eating a gluten/poison, it somehow changes how I perceive them and interact with them and I hate this part about me. It is taking a lot of mental effort to try to smile and treat them as a human, and not something to be looked down upon in disgust. I just recall that mental state that gluten puts me in with my mind and body turning against me and not doing what I will it and the fear comes back. This diet is pretty much like mine, I take Doctors best Magnesium powder in a tea that is actually brewed with st johns wort (never thought much of it) , I use Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with the Neurologic Support they have, twice-three times a day for B vitamins(along with a bunch of other supplements) . I can not digest meats or carbs well, meats it is a issue with breaking them down same with egg yolks, I literally just burp up the undigested meats hours later. I have found the only way to eat them is to boil/slow cook them til they melt then blend them into a broth and have it with digestive enzymes so only do it with turkey bacon, longhorn, and salmon in small amounts in soups or for flavoring stock for stir frys.  As for Carbs like rice and potatoes I end up getting really gassy and bloated, same with sugars in any amount greater then like the size of my thumb give or take. Oats I only have gluten-free Harvest in about a tbsp amount when tasting recipes of stuff I sell at farmers markets. So I eat mostly fats and protein from egg whites, nuts, seeds, veggies, and vegan protein powders blends balanced for complete proteins. I have at least 1-2 dried fig, dates, handful of banana chips, or a 1/4 of a small fruit with meals for fruits.  My meals are mostly egg white and veggie omelettes, stir frys, and soups, Always with lots of fats and proteins in each meal. I have found having nutritional yeast to help with my mood and energy levels also and find someway of having it in meals often. I keep my foods on rotation and keep getting updated feed back on ratios with my dietician. I also have a rather odd list of foods I can not eat due to allergies/intolerance.
    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure.

    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.
