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

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! :]

    • Neutrogenia  on my face and whatever is on sale everywhere else
    • Hello Jules, Her tTg/Iga is very, very high and that will not occur from just the diabetes alone.  Since Type 1 and Celiac share the same genetics and can occur together, it would be great if she could have the complete Celiac panel run and not a partial. I do not understand the test for Immunoglobulin so cannot comment on that but her tTg is concerning for Celiac. With her symptoms, she should be fully screened for it, along with your other daughter who has Hashi's.  I also have Hashi's and that's another one that likes to pair with Celiac Disease. Tests in the full panel include: tTg/IgA and tTg/IgG- Since your daughter's tTg was sky high, the IgG version of testing usually done may not be needed. DGP/IgA- This tests for reaction to gluten in her diet. This is usually repeated with the tTg annually for dietary compliance, if she is diagnosed with Celiac. EMA- This test is usually not done unless the tTg is positive because it has to be done by a technician and not a machine and it is expensive. However, it is VERY important in a panel because if it is positive, then coupled with a positive tTg, pretty much is diagnostic for Celiac.  The GI will want to do a biopsy, which is usually indicated for kids or young adults. NO OTHER DISEASE WILL CAUSE A POSITIVE EMA BUT CELIAC DISEASE. Total IgA:  This is done to make sure a patient produces enough IgA antibody for testing purposes to be relevant but it will not be needed for your daughter.  Her tTg number proves she makes enough antibody. Good luck with testing and make sure she keeps eating gluten until all testing is completed!
    • I use Neutrogena and the Equate Walmart kind.  No gluten ingredients.  Celiacs don't need to worry about things they don't eat having gluten.
    • New here- would love some help. My daughter has type 1 diabetes. For the last 1-2 years she has been very irritable- major mood swings that can be activated over the smallest things. She has tested vitamin d deficient in the past- on a supplement now-has been recently complaining of pain in her legs nightly and having a hard time sleeping. Her hair which used to be very thick is now much thinner. She also has a very bloated belly with some diarrhea from time to time.    Her blood work was transglutaminase ttg iga >100 and immunoglobulin a 78 (range is 80 up)   she just tested positive for mono in the beginning of May  She also has an older sister with Hashimoto's    could this be anything other than celiac? thanks!         .
