i'm new to this forum so i'm not sure if this topic has been reviewed before or not, but i'm really confused on the issue of vinegar. i've heard from some people that it's ok as long as it's distilled, but then others say it's ok whether it's distilled or not. it's a pretty big deal since it's in alot of things, i was just wondering if anyone knew for sure. thanks!

I have encounted the same problems. I read one place that it must be distilled, and other places it's ok as long as it is not MALT vinegar. I know for a fact MALT vinegar is BAD. But..could someone shed some light on the subject? I would say it's always safe to have regular distilled vinegar, and I read that Heinz white vinegar is safe.

from what i know, anything that says "vinegar" means distilled vinegar and it is safe.

I use heinz vinegar and have never had any probs.

So if you see just "vinegar" on a label it is safe, according to the FDA.

You are correct-malt vinegar is not safe.

*however, i do believe there are some people who still have problems with vinegar.

I'm not sure, but I think that most vinegars are distilled and therefore they are gluten-free. However, I can't tolerate white vinegar. For some reason it makes me feel "glutened". I stick to products that are made from apple cider vinegar and seem to be OK. Everyone is different though.

Heinz vinager is made distilled from corn, I have never had a problem with it. Many don't react to distilled wheat vinager but some do. My family reacts to distilled grains in vinager and in alcohol. Many will not have any problems but for some reason we get a gluten reaction. I don't know if this is because we were all so very, very sick before diagnosis or because we have DH also.

Even though distilled white vinegar is gluten-free, I've found that I don't tolerate it well. Not sure why. For this reason, I avoid products that have "vinegar" or "distilled vinegar" as an ingredient. I have no problems with balsamic vinegar and apple cider vinegar.
