Recommended Posts

huh.gifOk so I ordered the new Gluten-Free Product listing Guide 14th edt. Just came today WOOO HOO!! However in there it says that "Smirnoff Ice flavors Vodka All EXCEPT ice Light" are gluten-free. Now my ????? is this I have seen here and elsewhere that this they were not do to the fact that they were a Malt Beverage??? So I am confused. Just someinsight would be great. Because now Iam CONFUSED to say the least. It doesnt list some other alchols or Beer/Beer altenatives that I found and know are gluten free as well. WHAT should i do??? Any & All suggestions would be appreciated

Your right if they are malt liquor, as in the States, they would not be safe. Where is the guide published? In Canada I think those are safe as they are a vodka drink rather than a malt liquor. I could be wrong though.

I don't know about the Smirnoff Ice, but as to the other products not being listed, no list will cover everything. If you know they are safe, don't worry about a list. Drink up!

Last I remember Ice is gluten-free in Canada because it's made with liquor. In the U.S., it's not.

Malt is NOT safe - here in the U.S. Ice is sold as a "beer" and is not made with liquor. It is a malt beverage. Anheiser Busch brought a mainstream gluten-free beer to market recently called Redbridge - it's good if you like a sweeter beer. I prefer to cook with it because it just doesn't have the bite that a good 'ole gluten-free laden beer has.

Personally, I stick with distilled spirits, because I know I won't have to worry or suffer later. Besides, it gave me an excuse to keep a stocked liquor cabinet!

Thanks everyone!! The book is printed here! I did read more of the disclaimers and like love & rave stated it does say that alcohol that is unsafe here may be in Canada, It just didnt list it that way!!
