Yellowtail Savignon Blanc Has Gluten?

So conversation in another thread about wine led me to do some poking around the web, and I found that the Yellowtail website lists if a wine is "vegan" or "gluten free". And the savignon blanc is *not* listed as gluten free!ohmy.gif One more thing to worry about.

Is this the same wine?

Under wine/nutrition, they say that their wines ARE gluten free....

I can't get into the faq link. Once you enter the site you can click on each wine and see its nutritional info. They all list "gluten free" except the savignon blanc. So on the glass half full side, that seems to be only one that's a concern. No idea why.

I would think there is no need to worry. Wine is not subject to gluten. :D

While wine is naturally gluten-free, some of the refining additives may contain gluten. (Or who knows what for that matter.) My gent pointed out that isinglass is used in clarifying wine, and it's derived from the bladders of fish (sturgeons.) Other additives are derived from eggs, etc. They don't have to list their ingredients, and additives vary, so I'd stick with the stuff that says it's gluten-free, just in case.

I drink wine like it's going out of style but I've never had a reaction.

Spock, the vast majority of us with celiac who have "experimented" have done so with no reaction whatsoever -- except when we over-experimented.

don't they use wheat paste as a glue when making the wooden wine barrels??

if so, it stands to reason that trace amounts are in wine.

last time i tried a sulfite free white wine, it made me feel terrible. could be that alchohol is'nt for me.?

All of us here have heard that tale many times, but nobody has presented a credible source to say that this actually leads to gluten in the wine. If you have one, please post it.

Two drinks isn't over-experimenting. People should know that some distilled spirits, even in moderation, aren't safe for people with celiac.

I was just laughing at Richard's post, thinking "ain't that the truth!". No one said you, personally, over indulged.

Most, but not all, Celiacs, have no problem with distilled spirits. They may not work for you. It's good you figured it out.

I've yet to see valid evidence that would make me not consume wine. Many people don't react well to it, but it doesn't mean its a celiac reaction.

And spock...depending on who you ask and how much you've eaten...two drinks very well could be over-expirimenting :)

I have no problem with wine or distilled alcohols. I drink single malt scotch, so no chance of contamination through a cheap blend, and all the wines I've tried have been fine (barring that over-indulgence thing). If you, personally, react to something, then by all means remove it from your diet, but don't assume that everyone has the same response.

I agree with Peter, over the years this is one thing I've heard constantly--the gluten-in-wine theory...but then why haven't any ever tested positive for gluten? Tons of celiacs now use the gluten test strips, yet I've never heard of a wine testing positive for gluten. I've spoken to the owners at one of the biggest commercial gluten testing labs about this as well, and he's never seen it either. I also go to wineries regularly, and have seen them heat steaming the inside of new barrels...the water is near boiling, and they use a powerful steam power washer to do this. Do you think they'd want any contamination in their wine? Also, any material in the wine settles for at least a year before they bottle it, and is not used.

I've thought about doing a $500 challenge on Celiac.com for anyone who can find a commercially produced wine that tests positive...what do you think?

I drink a few brands of white wines, and have not had a problem.

According to this article, its not just the flour paste in the barrels that could be a problem. Wheat is used as a clarifying agent in wine. Its not clear whether it can end up in the finished product.

It's never been the least bit of concern to me, nor to any of the national celiac foundations/associations or research organizations.

.....just sayin' :D

And I agree with Lisa and Sylvia. None of the major advocacy groups for celiac disease or gluten intolerance list wine as a concern. Even the notoriously over-cautious Celiac Sprue Association lists wine as safe.

Recently I was at a resort that hosted a vintner weekend of wine tasting. i spoke with the vintner who explained the wheat paste issue to me. He statement was that the higher quality wines do not use the wheat paste as they properly seal their kegs. It is the lesser quality (under $5) wines that "could" be a concern as they are the ones that would be more likely to use wheat paste to seal the cracks. He statement was "could be". He stated that he had not heard of gluten as being an issue but that he would not rule it out. Higher quality wines would not be an issue. Would anyone like to shared a bottle with me? :P :P

    • I've lost 3-4 pounds.   It surprises me, as I would have expected to lose more, considering how limited my diet has been,  how sick I was since early May, and now walking 35 to 45 min. after dinner.   I think it's the increased gluten-free bread and shortbread cookies.  I've eaten more of these as they settle my stomach and are safe when I'm not sure what else will work.   I think I may also be having more sodium, so there may be a bit of water weight. I am actually doing better.   I've been on Famotidine 20 mg., 2x daily for about 9 days, and added Vit D a few days ago.   I've been able to drop one of 4-5 stacked pillows at night, and will try dropping one more tonight.   I am down to Tums (1500 mg.)  around 3-4 a.m. for mild heartburn / upset stomach, and again when I get up.   Not much else, maybe occasional simethicone.     i tried returning to a salad at dinner, just lettuce, tomato, and onions, but seemed to have more trouble overnight, so quit.  I'm mostly eating an egg with toast, well cooked sweet potatoes/mixed veggies, tuna, some salmon, hamburger, chicken, Ian's fish sticks, bone broth, Schar's breadsticks and shortbread, some soy milk or macadamia milk, and the bakery gluten-free bread.  
    • Ebetta posted this 6 years ago ... not sure she/he will respond
    • Welp, according to the lady at the gastro's office, my tests were all "fine" and I don't have cancer or celiac. I asked for a copy of the report so hopefully that will happen. I guess I will follow up with my family practice doctor and see what they think I should do next, but I am not going to go back on gluten again. My eye doctor is concerned about an inflammatory condition in my retinas, that is rapidly advancing over the last year and thinks that anything I can do to decrease inflammation should be done. So to me, that means sticking with gluten free and lots of vegetables, especially the leafy greens. Also need to figure out why my liver enzymes are elevated. This is the third time in the last 9 years according to my old labs. I've gone over all my supplements and my one medication (compounded thyroid) to make sure they are all gluten-free. My plan is to live like I have celiac disease from here on out. My only dilemma is what to give people as a reason why I can't eat the food they make for me. For now, "Gluten makes me deathly ill" is going to have to be good enough. thank you all for the help and advice! I've found a wealth of information here and am currently reading Dr. Fassano's book and a couple of different threads on this forum that are incredibly helpful.
    • Hello ebetta! Can you tell me have you found any other or even better drugs to help you with gastroparesis? 
    • That's interesting, thanks.  I will look into both - and I believe our forefathers' habit of boiling up bones was good for the joints, too.  I wonder if you could tell me, did you lose much weight through all of this? I have lost about 4-5 pounds since this began, and I don't really like losing weight when I'm not trying to. Mind you - some days I just can't eat, after lunch yesterday I couldn't face anything much at all.
