#820803 Wine Barrels Sealed With Flour Paste

Posted by Bella001 on 31 August 2012 - 05:53 PM

my brother recently told me that a gal he dated is celiac and cannot drink red wine because the wine barrels are sealed with flour paste -

I inquired of a friend who manages a winery - this is her response, after questioning her wine maker:

Apparently it's common practice to seal the barrel heads with flour paste. It's a mixture of unbleached flour and distilled water used to assure a leak-proof seal. Here's the web site with more info

Does anyone have additional information on this topic ??????

Thank you.


I drink fish eye cab often and never had any gluten reactions. I've emailed them and they confirmed there is no gluten. I'm sensitive also!

#727778 Constipation!

Posted by Bella001 on 04 September 2011 - 03:54 PM

I know a lot of you here have the big D, but I have and have always had quite the opposite. I can go days, even weeks without going. I have had every test known to man and nothing is "physically" wrong. They say it is just the way I am wired and should improve now that I have been diagnosed. That some celiacs are constipated. I have only been gluten-free for 10 days. The nausea has improved as has the bloating but the constipation seems to have gotten worse. I eat plenty of fiber and drink plenty of fluids. HMMMM... any tips of the trade would be appreciated. Thanks



I had the same issues you are dealing with...I'm sorry : ( Fresh orange juice (I juice them myself) every morning does the trick for me. I also cut back BIG time on dairy...since doing that I've noticed a HUGE difference! Sometimes prunes would work also.

Good luck!

#683707 Facial

Posted by Bella001 on 15 March 2011 - 09:26 AM

Do you need to worry about what's in the products?



Yes. Last time I had a facial I told the person I'm allergic to wheat...figured she'd get that better than gluten. She checked every lable of every product she used and adjusted as needed. I also asked to her to make sure to keep all products a good way from my mouth.
