I can't seem to find what exactly SKYY Vodka is made from. The company website says it's distilled from grain, but WHAT grain? Wheat or corn?

I don't know the answer to you question, but this might help:

Thanks, Momma Goose! :)

I've actually read through that before, and it's VERY interesting, in fact, it's sort of the reason I am curious. I went out last night, and today my insides feel absolutely horrible (aching, cramping, diarrhea.) I did not get horribly drunk, and this is not a hangover. I drank vodka, which is of course is gluten-free, but in that thread, I remember reading about people who had a reaction to alcohol distilled from grain, regardless of gluten content.

I'm just trying to figure out what would have caused such a bad reaction. It could be mixing brands of vodka. (We went to 4 places, and all 4 carried different brands of vodka, oy vey.) I drank Tito's, Smirnoff (which are both made from corn), Skyy, and Absolut. I don't think it was the Skyy, since I had that first and felt fine. I drank the Absolut last, and for some reason, I took a sip of it, and didn't want to drink it anymore.

Anyway, I'm just trying to find the culprit...

Has anyone had similar experiences?

Yes, there are some sensitive people here that do react to grain based distilled alcohol. Raven, where are you???

Don't know about Skyy, but Chopin Vodka is distilled from potatoes.

I'm not able to buy Chopin here (I live in a very small town right now) but was able to find Luksusowa, which is made from potatoes as well.

I checked the Skyy website, and while it was very glitzy, I couldn't find any real information. :(

did you have any flavored vodkas? sometimes flavorings added have gluten in them. and i remember reading somewhere that flavored absolut is bad for celiacs. but don't quote me, i'm not sure if that is 100% true, just an idea.

Nope, no flavorings. My only thought is the cranberry juice, though I don't know why it would contain gluten. (HFCS yes, yuckkkkkkk.)

Ugh- considering I have been glutened by OJ, nothing would surprise me but I know I stick with corn or potatoe vodkas (Smirnoff, Chopin). But another thought occurred to me- CC either in a glass that wasn't clean or a beverage nozzle. You figure with many different alcohols in a bar, it's a possibility?

Hope you feel better!

Skky Vodka is advertised as being gluten free, it's derived from Corn. It says so on their website..you just have to search a bit for it

Thanks modiddly 16!

I could find that it was distilled from Midwestern grain, but couldn't find if it was corn or wheat. Thanks for the info!

This is the 3rd day of me being sick from whatever I had on Friday, this is crazy.

Hello Momma Goose. Long time no speak. The potato Vodka is the best Vodka, but be careful they don't add anything back in. The industry has come up with so many flavors for hard liquer that you can't tell what they use to flavor it with. Distilling should kill the gluten protein, but if they add a glutenous substance back in then it defeats the purpose.

Raven's computer crashed big time, I am back now with my old comp but a virgin system.

I do react to the gluten grain distilled vodkas and also the grain distilled vinagers. It is not the norm though as most do tolerate. For me it is obviously a gluten reaction because it will cause a DH outbreak followed by the usual I got glutened symptoms.

What I do with any alcohol I question, or anything else for that matter is to challenge. I have some everyday for a week and watch for a reaction. Then if I have no reaction to the item it is added into my diet.

It would be hard to say if the reaction the OP is talking about is from the vodka or from CC issues. There is nothing wrong with being a loyal ______ drinker. Find one or two brands that you tolerate and then when you go out drink only those brands.

    • Ditto. However, this is what I can never understand about gluten free food.  (see the bold bits which I've taken from the article) "We wanted to determine if gluten consumption will affect health in people with no apparent medical reasons to avoid gluten. Gluten-free foods often have less dietary fiber and other micronutrients, making them less nutritious and they also tend to cost more,” I wonder why  what so much of what I eat  that's gluten free doesn't have added vitamins - we of all people need fortification in our cereals and bread, surely?       
    • Yeah we learned that the hard way.  I am inclined to think (as I did initially) that it was JUST the Cheerios but as time is passing and she is not bouncing back I am worried that we need to strip away dairy again for a while.
    • Oh I have no issue with being dairy free personally but tell that to a 13 year old.  We both went gluten-free at the same time and it has been mindlessly easy for me.  But I am easy about food and no real food issues.  I am far more adaptable.  She comes to the table with her own unique set of issues that complicate just easily transitioning to dairy free versions of much loved favorites.  To most they are jst that "substitutes" to her they are completely different foods and ones that she has no interest in eating.  They don't satisfy her need for XYZ.  It is like craving an apple and someone handing you a fish.  For her anyway! LOL!
    • I believe the talk around this forum is that cheerios are not gluten free enough for people with celiac at this time. I don't know if anything has changed on that and when their lawyer calls me I'll quickly delete this. haha  
    • Could be we generally say get off of dairy for a few months when going gluten free. The part of the intestines that produce the enzymes, and help break down dairy are associated with the tips of the villi, which are the most damaged if not gone in celiacs. THIS is why most of us end up with a lactose intolerance early on. And most can introduce it later after healing. As to her symptoms with it there was a bunch of research about dairy permeated the gut and causing neurological issues in a autism study I was looking at years ago. And there have been other studies about damaged intestines and how the hormones in milk can easier effect ones body.   Personally I also have a huge grudge against dairy on a personal level as it is not natural to suck on a cows tits and drink the stuff, nor your dogs, nor a rabbits......I mean come on even Human Breast milk you would find odd to drink as an adult right? Back in the past dairy was a great way to get calories and fats when there was famine, etc around I mean it is meant to make a calf grow into a 500+lb cow. But on a genetic and hormonal level it is not really for human consumption and now days the whole corporate BS propaganda push and dairy farms shove that oh its healthy stuff down your throat. There are plenty of dairy free options for everything feel free to message me if you need help finding anything I have been dairy free for over a decade.
