That one is not safe if my memory serves me. Woodchuck has a couple that are safe but check their website I seem to remember that one wasn't. Most ciders are safe but not all.

I was also under the impression that Hornsby's is NOT okay. Strongbow and Woodchuck are.

This is great news!

It's funny, but 11 years ago dating my husband, I had my first Woodchuck and LOVED it! I never, ever, cared for beer, thinking the "carbonation" made me ill. I never got D, but intense bloating, and "rock-gut." Since being dx, I have only had mixed drinks and wine....it will be nice to try a cider again...I have stayed away because I knew not all ciders were gluten free. I'm a little lazy on the research side...I just read these posts every few weeks to stay updated.

Thanks for the info!

Angie

uh-ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

this is not good news as I just took a few swigs whilst finishing up yard work................

I emailed Hornsby's cider company and they confirmed that their hard ciders are gluten free. See the following dated September 14, 2009:

I am super-sensitive and have been drinking Hornsby's cider on occasion for about the last year and a half and have never had any problems. I do like Woodchucks better, but have always been grateful for the Hornsby's when they were all that was available, especially if it's the amber. The Ace cider I had in Florida this February was incredible!

I routinely drank Hornsby's for the last three months with no problem. Maybe for the supersensitive it might be a problem???

This just irks me. Any part gluten is not gluten free. I call this the dog turd thinking by the people who made the this law.

(dog turd thinking-if I put a dog turd on your salad and take it off, will you mind eating that salad?) Love whom ever thought his up.

LMAO!!!! Thank you so much for this analogy, I will have to use it daily! And good to know about Hornsby's as I declined buying it this evening b/c I was unsure of the "caramel coloring" in the ingredients. So thanks everyone! :]

    • DGP can absolutely be false positive. Google will not tell you that but I have found multiple studies in journals showing this and have also been told this by two different celiac clinics. I myself test positive to DGP when the assay is ran one way and negative to it when run another way. It is only a matter of time before the rest of Google University stops claiming it is overwhelmingly accurate. The test is young, toughly 10-12 years.  How many biopsies were taken? Do you have the report? Is there any inflammation at all in the small intestine? Did you have the gene test? If you still feel sick after some time on the gluten-free diet your health issues might not be gluten related. You might want to consider other diagnoses.  As for taking precautions in the interim, I am so sorry. My brother is celiac and they have a gluten-free house. When I was trying to see if cc was keeping me sick, I stopped even cooking at my boyfriend's and asked before even kissing him. Pretty sure he thought it was nuts too but he kept his mouth shut. This life can be extremely restrictive and more frustrating if you are still sick without an official diagnosis. Cycling lady suggested that I try a plastic bin with my own pans, spoons, that I could tuck away from people. That might work for you.  Good luck! I hope you feel better soon and I wish your family was more supportive. 
    • Please have your doctor check this out. It could be splinter hemmorage but it also could be cancer. While chances are it isn't anything dire it is best not to take any chances.
    • I think a lot of us can identify with his symptoms. The pattern you are seeing on his skin is likely something called livedo reticularis. In myself it seems to be related to inflammation. Before diagnosis the only thing that would alleviate this for me was an acupuncture session. it would be gone for a couple hours then reappear. I think it is associated with inflammation.  Mine reappears if I am glutened or very cold. You mention he had routine labs. Did they do a celiac panel?  he may want to ask at his local hospital if they have a fund for folks without insurance. While my local hospital didn't cover doctors visits they did cover any lab tests and if they don't cover in full they may have a sliding fee scale. the other option is to have him go gluten free but it is best to try and get a diagnosis before deleting gluten if possible. It might be helpful for him to come here if he is willing.
    • Celiac is genetic. That is why it is advised that all first degree relatives of folks diagnosed get tested before they go gluten free. If you have other family members who haven't been tested it would be best to have them blood tested before they go gluten free. You may want to consider going back to eating gluten for a bit so you can be tested.
