Coping!

I have heard this tale about wine many times, but have never found any credible evidence that wine contains gluten. I drink wine without any reservations.

I was waiting for your post Peter! Thanks!


Lots of doctors diagnosed me with lots of things including IBS, lactose intolerance, wheat intolerance, and quite a few of them threw up their hands in total confusion.

Had GI symptoms, allergy symptoms and unexplained illness my whole life.

Jan. 2010 Diagnosed celiac at the age of 40.

Ready to get well and get on with my life!

Well, I actually found one that Peter missed. Yeah for me! :blink::lol: It is possible to get wine barrels sealed with wheat paste. Here is a place that sells them to wine makers. That doesn't mean that every wine out there has been stored in a barrel sealed with wheat paste of course. Probably most larger wineries use stainless steel storage tanks for their wine. So, it might not be a bad idea to check with the winemaker on it. I suppose it might be possible for them to change to a rice flour paste if enough people asked them nicely. Or we could ask them for a list of wineries that buy their barrels too.

The quote is near the bottom of the page on making the barrels.

More on the Mighty Oak Barrel

....

"After the toasting level is reached, the coopers are ready to finish assembling the oak barrel. The grooves inside the oak barrel (called crozes) receive an application of wheat flour paste (while the barrel is upright). After this the crozes have heads fitted in. Put into place with a large mallet, the final hooping is then complete."


Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.

Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, celery, strawberries, pistachios, and hard work. Have a good day! 🙂 Paul
