Virtually no distilled vinegar is made from wheat. Even if it is, the distilling makes it gluten-free.

The veined cheese arguments is another one of those "trial and error" things.

Here are the arguments:

YES -- The yes people state that the bacteria used to make bleu cheese comes from moldy bread (which is accurate) -- the issue then becomes does the mnoldy bread infect the cheese? The yes people say it has to -- it is on the cheese and it did contain gluten at some point

NO -- These folks agree with the "yes" group in that the bacteria comes from the bread -- however, the bacteria/mold then feeds/works on the actual cheese and not the bread. Hence, the bread is used to start the process, but not to finish it.

What Science tells us - Scientific testing has shown that after the bacteria/mold has been applied to the cheese, the gluten is not carried through the process. The only gluten to be found was that of the moldy bread that was left on the actual cheese. This amount of gluten was found to be so small, it barely registered...

Furthermore, if the cheese is cleaned before it is shipped, it will have less if any gluten.

In my experience, I have not had any problems with bleu or gorogonzola cheese. I eat them all the time.

The choice is up to you...

Distilled vinegar is gluten free..

Personally, I can't imagine why anyone would purposly eat moldy cheese. That's what makes blue cheese look the way it does. If it was called "Moldy Cheese", nobody would buy it. Interesting how it's expensive too. If we find anything in the back of our refridgerator having mold on it, we toss it out. As I recall, mozzarella gets pinkish when it gets mold on it.

Of course we're still talking about consuming the milk of an animal which isn't anything like humans. If apes are supposed to related to us...well, let's not go there...(sorry, rant over)

A large number of blue or veined cheeses aren't even started on bread any more. They're started on an artificial medium.

I once read as post from somebody who knew a cheesemaker. According to the cheesemaker, even if every molecule of the starting culture were gluten, it would be less than 1 part per million. I have not researched this myself, but am merely repeating what I read at St. John's.

I love those moldy cheeses. Yum, yum.

I would not risk risk it! Have you see how much flour is in the air at a pizza joint?

I don't know about Domino's (although it would be terrific if it's true!) but I'd be careful about blue cheese. This week I almost bought a tub of crumbled blue cheese, and luckily looked at the lable....it specifically said that it contained WHEAT. Yipes! Maybe some blue cheeses add something else that makes them unsafe?

Boar's Head blue cheese is gluten-free.

My husband has been a manager at Domino's for several years. We checked with corporate to be certain the wings were okay. Here is how to do this:

When you call in, ask for a manager. Explain that you want to place an order for the wings but have an allergy to wheat. Ask the manager to request that the person handling your order wash their hands just prior to handling the wings to avoid cross contamination. If possible, order other stuff along with it so that it is worth their while to do the special handling for you. Be sure to tip well so that they remember you next time and have an incentive to go that extra mile. I would question the bleu cheese just because I can't stand the smell of the stuff, but the ranch is definitely ok.

Since my husband did not work at the store which delivers to our home, he contacted the manager there and explained the situation. We order regularly. Our son enjoys the opportunity to get something with gluten in it (even if he does have to eat it in the floor away from us) while the gluten-free folks in the house hold are satisfied as well.

Good luck.

OK, so here's a post over three years old (I see Rice Guy was in rare form :D ). I was craving hot wings because of the Frank's Hot Wing Sauce thread and conducted a search.

I must admit to a rare lapse of judgement, but a while back I ordered some pizza , cheezy bread, and hot wings for a family get-together we were having. I feel it is my duty to feed my guests, and do not limit the selection to gluten-free items. So, I go get the food, get home, everyone's chowing down, yum yum, and I look at the wings. They don't "appear" to have any flour on them (I know, that's a very stupid assumption to make). I eat one. It's pretty damn tasty. I get a little anxious and don't eat any more.

I didn't get sick (thank you GOD!). But now I'm wondering if I could get away with following cdford's advise. I pick up pizza frequently for my guests and can't help but notice the employees are usually covered with flour (why do they always wear black shirts?). Seems to me there's probably nothing more nerve racking to a Celiac than being in a fried chicken place, a pasta place, or a pizza place.

Any thoughts on this?

best regards, lm

Here is a link to Dominos' Allergy Information. I was surprised to see that their white sauce (not alfredo) is gluten free.

https://order.dominos.com/en/pages/content/nutritional/allergen-info.jsp

This is a 3 year old thread. In the last year, Dominos has offered a gluten-free crust. However, because of cc issues, they do say that the " gluten-free" pizzas are not for Celiacs.

Here is one of the many discussions:

I can tell you having worked in both Dominos and other pizza places that unless it is an unopened, unused container of sauce, it is not gluten free. The sauce is put on the pizza by using a ladle to dip it out, then using that same ladle to smear it around the crust, then the ladle goes back in the sauce container. As soon as the first non-gluten free pizza is made, the sauce is no longer gluten free. This, and the same double dipping issue with toppings and hands is why pizza is one of the most elusive safe products for us to get out.

This makes sense. I got horribly glutened twice with Domino's gluten free pizza crust. Good to know why.

 

Also the pizza was annoyingly tiny.

Dominos is really gross anyway. It was so disappointing when they tried to capitalize on a gluten free crust and it turned out to be  unsafe for celiacs. It's unfortunate that these large corporations won't go the extra mile to do these things correctly. They are just trying to make a quick buck off of the uninformed (thereby contributing to the idea that "gluten free" is a fad or a fleeting marketing trend.) I would rather just make my own pizza or grab some frozen gluten-free pizza dough from Wegman's instead of supporting that kind of exploitative enterprise.

I was disappointed myself that their pizza was deemed unsafe for celiacs. Mostly because when they first announced it, before I saw that, I was familiar with Dominos because of having worked in one. I thought that since they don't work with any flour in the stores at all, if they simply had a small amount of toppings set aside as gluten free and a small prep area. Special pans and ran the pizzas on the top of the oven that they would be minimally at risk. It is unfortunate that they couldn't do it right for all of us. On the other hand, while it isn't safe for us, I've moved on from my original pissy attitude to be grateful for the people that can enjoy it. There are a lot of people who are gluten free for health reasons other than celiac who can enjoy it, not the least of which is autism. If can make even a handful of lives of families struggling with that easier, I'm for it.

    • Yes you are correct. Interestingly my genes in the US are thought to be more associated with RA. Which is something they thought I had prediagnosis. In the Middle and far East they are more likely to be associated with celiac and they are rare genes in Caucasians which I am according to my parents known heritage. I always caution folks not to take the gene tests as absolute proof they can't have celiac because I had one child who had positive blood and biopsy, did well on the diet, then got genes tested in young adulthood and was told they could never be celiac. Of course that resulted in her abandoning the diet. I worry but hope someday doctors will realise we still have a lot to learn about the genetics of this disease. PS While I still have some deformity in my hands my joint pain resolved after a few months on the diet.
    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
