#310859 Rum And Sugar Cane Allergy

Posted by Gwendolene on 03 June 2007 - 01:19 PM

Ok, so this isn't directly related to gluten, but I wasn't sure where else to ask (turned up empty on google and at my allergists).

After going gluten-free, I was still feeling sick so I got tested for other allergies and came up positive for a non-life threatening allergy to sugar cane.

Rum is made from sugar cane, so I've been avoiding it, but then I got to thinking...

Wiskey is made from barley, but is distilled so is therefore safe for us to drink.
Beer is not distilled, so it is not safe to drink.

Since rum is distilled shouldn't it be safe for me to put in my rum cake?? :blink:


Yoho Ho and a bottle of rum :P
