Wonder Why You May Be Reacting To Some Wines?

Recommended Posts

I agree, Mike. But as for wine, I have not had much problem with it, even the cheap foreign ones. I am very sensitive to gluten but I just haven't had much problem. I have been trying to stick to American wines since I found out about the wheat paste thing, but honestly how does one find out how the wine is made without taking a tour? E-mailing the companies doesn't seem to produce answers and forget about their websites. So, because I do love wine, I just have to find a brand that looks good and take my chances. So far so good, I think. :) Should we have a section somewhere here where we post all the brands we've tried that seem ok? Or is that too risky since we don't have hard evidence that they're safe? Just an idea, anyway :)

I think one thing we can all agree on is that we all seem to have different reaction levels to gluten. I posted this info because it was so frustrating getting glutened and not knowing why. I want to know why. So I did some serious research on this. I have read over and over that "all wines are safe" and "so are vinegars" for that matter. Well, I am discovering, this is not the case. A lot of the old timer's (celiac's) will not touch vinegars with a ten foot pole. All they knew was they got a reaction. I am pretty sure we now know why.

P.S. Maybe I need to step it down a notch and give up the pricier stuff! After this last glutening, I am not quite ready for another experiment. This one was really rough. I do hope we can all sit at the Celiac/Gluten intolerant table together (this web site) and give one another a little elbow room so to speak. Mike

Of course we can give each other elbow room. And I still totally agree with you. I'm one of those super sensitive gluten-intolerants, too, so I totally hear where you're coming from! I know I have more concerns about CC and packaging than others and I really appreciate it when less sensitive Celiacs understand why I have to be a little extra paranoid about it.

I really appreciate all the wine info you posted here. I love learning more about how food is made so I can make better decisions. I had no idea so much stuff went into wines! It was really interesting reading.

I know for sure not all vinegars are safe, and from my experience, not all wines are either, but of course it's so much harder to figure out which ones and why. I sure do wish it was regulated by the FDA instead of the ATF. Oh well. There's no way I'm giving up my red wine. I just have to be smart about which ones I buy. Giving up scotch was hard enough (yeah I know it's super distilled but it still kinda makes me sick.) :(

Anyway, I decided to start a list of wines I like on my blog. Wines that don't make me sick. That way it's in my own little 'corner' of the internet and just an IMHO kind of thing. I doubt I'll be adding to it very often because I don't usually have the cash to dish out for more than a few kinds of wine, and once I find something good I stick with it. But hopefully it will still help people, if anyone ever reads it. lol :rolleyes:
