Alcoholic Beverages,brands, And Mixes

Recommended Posts

In the midst of all my other stress with trying to gain control of this new lifestyle, I've just realized that I must find out about alcohol. Anyone know a good site or have a good list about brands, types of liquor, and mixes that are safe?

Any distilled alcohol is now considered safe for celiac to consume. There is a small portion of people who will react to grain based distilled alcohol and vinegars.

What you need to be careful with is when flavor is added to alcohol.

Seven up, Pepsi, Coke, Sprites and the Diets are glutuen free. Tonic and Soda water is of course.

If you are in the beginning of healing , it would be wise to minimize your exposure. Alcohol acts as a cleaner through your body.

The Celiac Sprue Association site also has some good info and I like it because they divide things into foundation (begining) and expanding (after you have healed) stages:

Use caution with distilled grain alcohols, as mentioned some of us are very sensitive to them. You may want to wait until you are healed before you try them so you will know for sure whether you can safely imbibe.

thanks for that info... i figured! Does anyone know if Brugal Rum from Dominican Republic is made from wheat? i believe it is made from molasses/sugar cane which should be safe.

While I don't know that particular brand, I have never, ever encountered a rum that was grain based. I just don't worry about rum, period. :)
