"pure Grain Alcohol?"

Recommended Posts

I have a bottle of elderberry syrup for my celiac kids (supposed to help boost immune system because they're catching EVERYTHING this winter!) and I noticed that it contains "Pure grain alcohol."  I'm so confused about alcohols and what is and is not okay.  Because it is "pure" grain alcohol, does that make it gluten free and safe? I'd love to start giving this to them, but the point is to make them better not worse!
Thank you!

Distilled alcohol should be safe. Not sure what exactly you are talking about? I wouldn't give children grain alcohol or elderberry alcohol?

If you are concerned you could call the maker and ask what grain from which the alcohol is derived. It could be corn based.  I would be very cautious giving this to a child.
