Has anyone had symptoms similar to this after consuming vinegar? My eyelids and skin below my eyebrows puffed up and turned bright pink, I felt fairly dazed and had a hard time moving my arms, got nauseous and was ill, and then for the next 3 days felt completely lethargic and listless. I'm pretty freaked out by the reaction but I never went to the doctor because I wasn't really sure what happened. My other question is has anyone with vinegar issues been able to eat other types of vinegar (such as apple cider vinegar)? Thanks

I'm unsure what the context is.

If you are referring to "vinegar" as a single-word ingredient, it is apple cider vinegar and is gluten-free. Other types of vinegar will have an adjective coupled with them. The only one we need to be concerned with is "malt vinegar," which is derived from barley and is definitely not gluten-free.

Could be a corn issue. Just recently connected some gluten yoe reactions I was getting to corn, which a lot of vinegar is made from. Apple cider doesn't bother me.

I felt nauseated, weak, and fatigued after just catching a whiff of vinegar. I am not certain what kind it was. I also swelled, I noticed the swelling in my abdomen and thighs. I didn't know to check my face at the time. It took a few days for my reaction to be done.

Vinegar is fermented, if I am correct. I react to fermentation. That might be a possibility for you too. Do you eat cheese, yougurt. Those are a couple of examples of other things fermented. I am not sure if this is connected with Celiac or not.

I have heard that people with a yeast infection also have trouble with vinegar. You might want to consider that.

Stay away from salad dressings, vinegar, catsup with vinegar, and tomato sauce with vinegar. There is catsup and tomato sauce made with lime or lemon juice.

I avoid vinegar, white vinegar, or distilled vinegar as they are most often made from corn. I was initially diagnosed by digestive disease doctor as having an allergy to wheat and corn because of an extremely high IGE and further blood tests indicated wheat and corn as the problems.

Initially I did not know all the things made from corn and reacted to vinegar. I have noticed my stomach reacts immediately to corn-derived things and I become nauseaous and get stomach spasms. I do tolerate other vinegars not derived from corn such as balsamic, apple cider or wine vinegar and use them.

If vinegar bothers but you can tolerate balsamic, cider or wine vinegar then you need to carefully check condiments and sauces labels. If it doesn't specify apple cider, balsamic or wine vinegar then it most probably is a vinegar made from corn.

And so I if says vinegar, white vinegar or distilled vinegar then it is most probably made from corn and you shouldn't use it.

I guess I wasn't clear enough earlier. If you see the single word "vinegar" as an ingredient it is NOT made from corn--it is made from apple cider.

In the U.S. when the terms Vinegar, Cider Vinegar, and Apple Vinegar are on a food label they must be made from apples. (Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] Title 21, Sec. 525.825, revised March 1995.)

SensitiveMe, I don't doubt that you have a problem with "vinegar," but it is not because of corn.

Oops...I forgot to tell you about another vinegar which has never caused me the least bit of problems. Actually my favorite but difficult to find. It is Coconut Vinegar made by Coconut Secret. It's GlutenFree made from organic coconut sap which is aged and fermented for up to a year.

I get it at my local natural market when they have it. But you can check about it if you want at www.coconutsecret.com

According to cornfree and corn allergy sites vinegar can be made from any sugar but the most common method is to use corn that has been converted from starch into sugar.

Vinegar can indeed be made from corn. Such vinegar is listed as "distilled vinegar," or less commonly "grain vinegar," or "spirit vinegar."

Rice vinegar has a nice, milder flavor. Great for salad dressing. In the Asian isle at most stores.

I LOVE rice vinnegar! It comes in different strengths, from 4.5% acidity all the way down to 2%. The 2% is so good and so mild you could literally drink it, and it tastes so good you might want to. And I can buy it at one of the grocery stores here which is a good thing because the closest Asian market is 60 miles away. Even before celiac I used to use it alone as a salad dressing - no oil necessary. Absolutely YUM!

Thanks karen, and bartfull. :)

I will check out rice vinegars and look for the lower acid ones. One of the reasons I especially like the coconut vinegar is because it has a nearly neutral pH. I am starting to make my own mustards, mayonaisse and marinades and such so this is helpful for me.

I didn't know that ! That explains why the salad dressing I made with this new bottle of rice vinegar didn't taste quite right. This new one is the 4.2%. I bet my last one was the 2% because it tasted good right out of the bottle.

Thanks karen, and bartfull. :)

I had never heard of coconut ones. That's good info for future readers. I might get some for fun.

Is this a reaction to various vinegars, or to a specific kind? Is it the same reaction as your gluten reaction? I'm assuming not, since you asked the question in the Other Intolerances area, yeah?

Do you do all right with wine? If wine makes you ill, there's a possibility that it could be a sulfite issue. Many sulfite sensitive folks have problems with fermented products as the yeast can produce sulfites as a natural by-product. If you don't have any issues with wine, however, you wouldn't have problems with vinegar which has lower levels of sulfites than wine does.

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.

    Celiac.com 06/19/2018 - Could baking soda help reduce the inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease? Scientists at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University say that a daily dose of baking soda may in fact help reduce inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease.
    Those scientists recently gathered some of the first evidence to show that cheap, over-the-counter antacids can prompt the spleen to promote an anti-inflammatory environment that could be helpful in combating inflammatory disease.
    A type of cell called mesothelial cells line our body cavities, like the digestive tract. They have little fingers, called microvilli, that sense the environment, and warn the organs they cover that there is an invader and an immune response is needed.
    The team’s data shows that when rats or healthy people drink a solution of baking soda, the stomach makes more acid, which causes mesothelial cells on the outside of the spleen to tell the spleen to go easy on the immune response.  "It's most likely a hamburger not a bacterial infection," is basically the message, says Dr. Paul O'Connor, renal physiologist in the MCG Department of Physiology at Augusta University and the study's corresponding author.
    That message, which is transmitted with help from a chemical messenger called acetylcholine, seems to encourage the gut to shift against inflammation, say the scientists.
    In patients who drank water with baking soda for two weeks, immune cells called macrophages, shifted from primarily those that promote inflammation, called M1, to those that reduce it, called M2. "The shift from inflammatory to an anti-inflammatory profile is happening everywhere," O'Connor says. "We saw it in the kidneys, we saw it in the spleen, now we see it in the peripheral blood."
    O'Connor hopes drinking baking soda can one day produce similar results for people with autoimmune disease. "You are not really turning anything off or on, you are just pushing it toward one side by giving an anti-inflammatory stimulus," he says, in this case, away from harmful inflammation. "It's potentially a really safe way to treat inflammatory disease."
    The research was funded by the National Institutes of Health.

    Celiac.com 06/18/2018 - Celiac disease has been mainly associated with Caucasian populations in Northern Europe, and their descendants in other countries, but new scientific evidence is beginning to challenge that view. Still, the exact global prevalence of celiac disease remains unknown.  To get better data on that issue, a team of researchers recently conducted a comprehensive review and meta-analysis to get a reasonably accurate estimate the global prevalence of celiac disease. 
    The research team included P Singh, A Arora, TA Strand, DA Leffler, C Catassi, PH Green, CP Kelly, V Ahuja, and GK Makharia. They are variously affiliated with the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Lady Hardinge Medical College, New Delhi, India; Innlandet Hospital Trust, Lillehammer, Norway; Centre for International Health, University of Bergen, Bergen, Norway; Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Gastroenterology Research and Development, Takeda Pharmaceuticals Inc, Cambridge, MA; Department of Pediatrics, Università Politecnica delle Marche, Ancona, Italy; Department of Medicine, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; USA Celiac Disease Center, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; and the Department of Gastroenterology and Human Nutrition, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.
    For their review, the team searched Medline, PubMed, and EMBASE for the keywords ‘celiac disease,’ ‘celiac,’ ‘tissue transglutaminase antibody,’ ‘anti-endomysium antibody,’ ‘endomysial antibody,’ and ‘prevalence’ for studies published from January 1991 through March 2016. 
    The team cross-referenced each article with the words ‘Asia,’ ‘Europe,’ ‘Africa,’ ‘South America,’ ‘North America,’ and ‘Australia.’ They defined celiac diagnosis based on European Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition guidelines. The team used 96 articles of 3,843 articles in their final analysis.
    Overall global prevalence of celiac disease was 1.4% in 275,818 individuals, based on positive blood tests for anti-tissue transglutaminase and/or anti-endomysial antibodies. The pooled global prevalence of biopsy-confirmed celiac disease was 0.7% in 138,792 individuals. That means that numerous people with celiac disease potentially remain undiagnosed.
    Rates of celiac disease were 0.4% in South America, 0.5% in Africa and North America, 0.6% in Asia, and 0.8% in Europe and Oceania; the prevalence was 0.6% in female vs 0.4% males. Celiac disease was significantly more common in children than adults.
    This systematic review and meta-analysis showed celiac disease to be reported worldwide. Blood test data shows celiac disease rate of 1.4%, while biopsy data shows 0.7%. The prevalence of celiac disease varies with sex, age, and location. 
    This review demonstrates a need for more comprehensive population-based studies of celiac disease in numerous countries.  The 1.4% rate indicates that there are 91.2 million people worldwide with celiac disease, and 3.9 million are in the U.S.A.
