If any one can help in replying my following Querry :-

Does Ethyle Alcohol (Grain Alcohol/ Ethanol) contains gluten, because this alcohol is used in homeopathic mother tincture for delutions & few alopathic medicines ? ?

Actaully, my 10 years daughter has recently been dignosed as a Celiac by blood test (Tissue Transglutemnis IgA) and then Endoscopy Biopsy Test. I have started here Gluten Free dite.

She used to have homeopathy medicines for cold & cought generally and this time also i have given these medicines for 45 days. But this medicines contain ethyle alcohol as a delituion of its mother tincture. And the Ethyle Alcohol is made of the fermentaion process by Yeast of Suger-Cane Juice and this yeast is obtained by Wheat, Rye etc.

So can some one please clarify that this alcohol is containg Gluten or there is any evendence for the same or any refrence...

I will be thankful to you for thi reply...

I can't answer for others but I had a severe reaction to a tincture given me by a naturopath. Many others may be able to use these without a problem. I had been gluten-free for 4 years before I took the stuff and I clearly had a gluten reaction complete with an outbreak of DH within hours of injestion. I also checked myself the stuff he gave me on my next visit, $300 dollars worth of homeopathic remedies that were loaded with soy and milk, they even had allergin warnings on the labels. When I immediately made the over an hour drive back to ask what was up the idiot told me that there wasn't enough of the offending substances to worry about. Yea right. I should note that not all alcohols are derived from gluten grains. If you really like using this type of product call the different makers of each. Some may use a alcohol derived from corn or wood. They would be gluten free and would not cause a gluten reaction even if your DD is very sensitive.

I would love to know if anyone has found more answers to the below.

I have contacted Boiron who produces the pillules homeopathics and pretty much all of them are gluten-free (except oats and another 1-2 meds which are not commonly used)

However I use liquid homeopathics and I would really like to know if those are gluten-free....................

There should be a phone number on the bottle or box that you can call. Please don't just ask if they are gluten-free because no matter what the alcohol is derived from they will say yes because some consider all distilled gluten grains safe. Ask instead what the alcohol they use in the product is derived from. No matter what the item, even juices or sodas, we can't assume that just because one is safe all are. You really need to check each item to be sure.

Aack! I wish someone would put "homeopathic or herbal tinctures" on the list of possibly unsafe foods. I have been taking a tincture every night, never suspecting that it contained gluten. I have been struggling with not feeling well even though I've been gluten free (or thought I was) for nearly six months. The other one that has totally got me is olives (which can apparently contain white vinegar). The learning process with this is unbelievable. Does anyone know of any books or resources that help get you up to speed without having to figure it all out by trial and error?

Unfortunately Boiron's homeopathics are all made from dairy and sugar (two things that my son and I are allergic to). Can't they figure out a base in which to put their homeopathics that isn't a common allergen?
