Grain Alcohol In Herbs/tinctures

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am new here, just found out about my gluten problem.

I take herbal tinctures with grain alcohol in them. Especially the company called Eclectic Herbs. Does anyone know what grain alcohols are in these products??

Thank you all so much for your help.

Most Grain alcohol herbal tinctures use Barley in them. Some Rye. I make my own using a grape based alcohol and organic herbs. I have learned the hard way that even some of the Corn based alcohols use Barley for distilling and filtering. :(

hope this helps :)

Some of us can tolerate distilled gluten grain alcohols, some of us can't. I am one who can't. I was made really ill by some tinctures I was given early on in my diagnosis. If they are something you can stop taking I would stop for a bit. After you have been gluten free for a bit and healed you could then try them one at a time and see if you tolerate. However after you have been gluten-free for a bit and healed you may not need them anymore anyway.
