Can we have hornsby's hard cider does anyone know?

That one is not safe if my memory serves me. Woodchuck has a couple that are safe but check their website I seem to remember that one wasn't. Most ciders are safe but not all.

I was also under the impression that Hornsby's is NOT okay. Strongbow and Woodchuck are.

This is great news!

It's funny, but 11 years ago dating my husband, I had my first Woodchuck and LOVED it! I never, ever, cared for beer, thinking the "carbonation" made me ill. I never got D, but intense bloating, and "rock-gut." Since being dx, I have only had mixed drinks and wine....it will be nice to try a cider again...I have stayed away because I knew not all ciders were gluten free. I'm a little lazy on the research side...I just read these posts every few weeks to stay updated.

Thanks for the info!

I believe that the real answer is no, Hornsby's Cider is not safe...

:o

uh-ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

this is not good news as I just took a few swigs whilst finishing up yard work................

:huh:

so - we'll know for sure tomorrow. But - in any case - Trader Joe's cider is MUCH better than this one, FYI.

I emailed Hornsby's cider company and they confirmed that their hard ciders are gluten free. See the following dated September 14, 2009:

I am super-sensitive and have been drinking Hornsby's cider on occasion for about the last year and a half and have never had any problems. I do like Woodchucks better, but have always been grateful for the Hornsby's when they were all that was available, especially if it's the amber. The Ace cider I had in Florida this February was incredible!

I routinely drank Hornsby's for the last three months with no problem. Maybe for the supersensitive it might be a problem???

1960s-had symptoms-could have been before but don't remember

1970s-told had colitis or nervous stomach-was given phenobarbital, felt great but still had symptoms

Me, dd and ds diagnosed with Lactose Intolerance

2000-osteopenia

2001-had stroke because of medications I was given

June 2003-saw Chiropractor who specialized in nutrition: Celiac Disease not Lactose Intolerance, went gluten free with once in awhile cheating, off soy and dairy for about 6 months

June 2003-found excellent doctor for fibromyalgia (who has found out she has Celiac Disease)

This just irks me. Any part gluten is not gluten free. I call this the dog turd thinking by the people who made the this law.

(dog turd thinking-if I put a dog turd on your salad and take it off, will you mind eating that salad?) Love whom ever thought his up.

LMAO!!!! Thank you so much for this analogy, I will have to use it daily! And good to know about Hornsby's as I declined buying it this evening b/c I was unsure of the "caramel coloring" in the ingredients. So thanks everyone! :]
