Miracle Whip And Other Vinegar-based Condiments

Recommended Posts

Hey all-- I need a little help here. Once again, the vinegar debate... Depending on what I read, some say items like A1 and miracle whip are okay b/c they are made with distilled vinegar. But I have found other sources that say do not eat either period-distilled or not b/c of gluten. What do you think?? :unsure:

miracle whip is fine--but dont use the miracle whip light--the last i knew it contained gluten--miracle whip mayo is fine too--and most vinegar is ok too--its a rough decision to take--sometimes i think and think and put it back--deb

I agree with celiac3270 I think it is safe when distilled. I have never had a problem with distilled vinegar either.

I think the only vinigar that can't be considered gluten free is malt vinigar.

Sorry celiac3270! I knew I was taking a gamble there but wasn't sure. I thought perhaps Peterson could be a maiden name and King a married name. Thought I'd go for it and assume away...but was wrong. Gotta give the male celiacs their respect :)

Lol :lol: ...it's fine. Peterson is my mom's maiden name, which became my nickname...I'm too young to be married, though, anyway :D . And it's a good gamble to take--there aren't many males who post here freqently....me, Richard...?

celiac3270,

Also a serious shortage of males at my support group - about 1 man for every 10 women. Are there fewer celiac males or are they just afraid of support groups!

Somewhere I heard that women are more prone to getting autoimmune disorders. I don't know the ratios for celiac. I think women tend to find support groups though.

I wonder if this would have anything to do with all of the hormones that rage through us, and especially in regards to having babies! I'm thinking of how pregnancy throws some autoimmune disorders into remission.

I've heard the same thing about women being more prone to autoimmune disorders. I think it's also that a lot of males don't care that much about their condition, so they'll just deal with it, but not care to try to learn more about it or help others who have it.......or like you said, avoid situations where you share feelings :) . I'm an exception to that, but my mom influences me more than my dad :lol:

My daughter just bought some Miracle Whip, made by Kraft. The label states it is made with modified food starch?

Let me know what you think.

So does that mean if Kraft states modified food starch it's ok to eat?

Thanks

yes. Modified food starch in the US is almost always corn starch, however to be safe I stick with companies such as Kraft and ConAgra that declare any wheat source on the label.

I don't have any problems with distilled vinegar, and I am an extremely sensitive celiac! LOL!!!! :D I just mean that I react to just about everything. Just last night I got accidentally "glutened" by cooking on a stove that hadn't been thoroughly cleaned after hubby made his pizza the other night and sliced it on the stove. I set my cooking spoon down in the crumbs and then continued to stir my food with it. What a dummy. I got so sick, I burst a blood vessel in my eye while I was puking and now have a lovely rash all over my face :rolleyes:

yeah anything by Kraft that doesn't have wheat,rye,barley,oats on the label is safe...they dont hide any gluten under any ingredients at all :D

Why thank you Sally! I'm actually feeling ok right now. Just this rash on my face to remind me, and a dull ache in my belly.
