I use Heinz Apple Cider Vinegar. The problem with salad dressings generally is the thickeners used may be wheat based. I know that Vlassic Pickles are safe. A lot of vinegars are safe, but not all--same with pickles. The safest thing to do is to call the companies in question.

I too have questions about vinegars. It seems to be in every thing that I want to buy........As in Kraft products. I would like to know that when I see just "vinegar" that the are gluten free. Isn't most vinegar gluten free?...unless it says malt vinegar?

To my understanding, Paul Newman dressings are safe as well as most Annies Dressing are safe, but please read the lables.

I will contact Newman's, that is the dressing I like anyway.

Is apple cider vinegar ok to use in any recipe calling for vinegar??? Is it too sweet??? I cook and bake a lot and am just starting to experiment with the gluten free stuff.

I know I can do this, It really isn't that different than the diet I have had for the last few years, unknowingly I've been cutting back on gluten all over and never put 2 & 2 together...DUH!!! The hardest thing is finding which mixes will bake with my recipes. Anyway, thanks a lot!!! Jen

Most vinegars are safe except for malt vinegar.

A lot of Kraft dressings are gluten free. Read the label, they are very good at listing the ingredients.

Most pickles are safe, but you have to read labels. Pickles like mustard pickles that are thickened are likely not safe.

Sure you can do it! It just takes time and a little patience ... well, sometimes more than a little patience when you get voice mail while your trying to check on things :lol: But you can do it and feel much healthier in the process :D

Pure vinegars that don't have anything added to them are gluten free, even if derived from wheat, because of the distillation process. Heinz white vinegar is derived from corn anyway, and rice vinegar is derived from rice. Champagne vinegar, wine vinegar, and balsamic vinegar are all derived from grapes (but check labeling for added ingredients).
