Yellowtail Savignon Blanc Has Gluten?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

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.

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

    • When you're looking for answers the negative endoscopy may seem like bad news in a funny way, it did for me when the doctor told me, but really as CL said it's good.  Keep working with your doctors.  From what you've said before gluten could still be the problem.  Now you've eliminated celiac you can try removing it from your diet, but it's important that you do it safely. You don't want to cause a problem while trying to fix one. Most people get a lot of B vitamins in particular from gluten foods. So if you make a change to your diet do it with your mom, ideally involve your doctor or a dietician and keep a diary of your symptoms too, sometimes called a food journal. You may still have found your answer, don't panic and don't lose heart. Best of luck Matt 
    • BoliviaB, DH rash can occur in Celiac's who reindtroduce wheat/gluten after a break from gluten. However I want to go/see that the parasite route has also been exhausted. The fever's (for most Celiac's anyway) are not typically but low grade inflammation is. I had annual bronchitis issues and ear aches that went away after stopping gluten. You did not say if your were a native Bolivian or not but if you are you  probably know about Chagas disease carried by the Kissing Bug. A blood test will confirm that the Chagas parasite's were killed with your AB's round. Though many AB's rounds can be as long as 2 months . . . not just two weeks for complete control. I wonder if you have Chagas (possibly) and it is causing you colon problems.  GI problems can be a sign of advanced Chagas complications. If you are having your blood drawn again it should be (re)checked. In the US (since it is not endemic) as it is in Bolivia people typically find out if they have it (Chagas) by giving blood. Chagas is considered a Neglected Tropical Disease (NTD) in the US but in Bolivia it should be ruled out as a possible cause of your fever(s) and GI problems. https://www.cdc.gov/parasites/chagas/disease.html quoting "a dilated esophagus or colon, leading to difficulties with eating or passing stool" can be a sign of chagas. if you hadn't mentioned parasites in your regimen I might not of mentioned it.  And in the UK if they didn't know your country of origin or your home country they might not of think to ask about it since it is a Neglected Tropical Disease and therefore had no reason to suspect Chagas to test your blood for it. I was only aware of it because it has begun to show up in Texas and CNN run an article about it a couple of years ago. http://www.cnn.com/2015/11/24/health/kissing-bugs-chagas-disease/index.html  If you have an outdoor dog --- dog's can also contract Chagase disease from the bite of the Kissing Bug much like in the US dog's can get heart worm from a mosquito bite. The CDC (the US health agency) says most people are assymptomatic but GI problems can be a severe sign of undiagnosed Chagas in about 30% of the population. quoting again "In people who have suppressed immune systems (for example, due to AIDS or chemotherapy), Chagas disease can reactivate with parasites found in the circulating blood. This occurrence can potentially cause severe disease." . . (NCGS and/or undiagnosed Celiac Disease (my words) could certaintly complicate someone's response to the Chagas parasite). This might be higher in Bolivia. . . and probably is since Chagas is endemic to Bolivia. The good news a blood test can help you find out if undidangosed Celiac or undiagnosed Chagas is causing your problems or if it is a complicated mix of the two. **** this is not medical advice but it explains your fevers' better than Celiac (usuallY) but the rash defiantly could be a DH reaction to gluten. I hope this is helpful. 2 Timothy 2:7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God, ETA: Here is the FAQ link from the CDC on Blood Screening for Chagas disease in the US.  https://www.cdc.gov/parasites/chagas/gen_info/screening.html Again I hope this helpful.    
    • Thank you for posting. Your honesty and openness is refreshing. My son is five years old and experiences the same as you, to include hallucinations, insomnia and stereotypies to name a few. His symptoms are all neuro psychological. Have you looked into trying a mild blood pressure med to control the accidental glutening? We were prescribed clonodine. It's not something to take all the time, just if you need to take the anxiety and insomnia levels down. I have only given it to my son during one episode and the first time I gave it to him he said, "finally!" and then fell asleep. He had been suffering from insomnia, anxiety, intrusive and dark thoughts for days. He needed the sleep. (Side note:  a lot of meds are made with lactose so you should always ask for dairy free and of course gluten free when filling a prescription). So my son responds very negatively to the following foods which are considered by some to be cross reactive to gluten.  Rye Barley Spelt Wheat Oats  Buckwheat Sorghum Millet Amaranth Quinoa Corn Rice Potato Hemp Teff Soy Milk (Alpha-Casein, Beta-Casein, Casomorphin, Butyrophilin, Whey Protein and whole milk) Chocolate Yeast Coffee (instant, latte, espresso, imported) Sesame Tapioca (a.k.a. cassava or yucca) Eggs   Our best bet has been to only eat fresh fruits, vegetables, grass fed meat and gluten free nuts. I highly recommend trying an AIP diet.  After a glutening I may give him one or two methylated B12 supplements. Have read studies involving the use of B9 in psychiatric disorders, but haven't tried it. Let me know if you want to chat or have any questions. I've been dealing with this for about two years now. We can probably learn from each other.    P.s. Just discovered recently that he reacts the same way to coconut as he would to gluten. Eliminated and now we're normal again. If you start feeling like you can't climb out of it then look very closely at your diet. Food logs are easier to make if you're eating very limited whole foods. You can slowly add things back. 
    • I am 33 and just diagnosed with celiac in July 2017. I am gluten free but still suffering from costocondritis and stomach acid issues. I am also dealing with some neurological things like pins and needles in my left shoulder blade that come and go. No deficiancies right now that we know of othwr than vitamin D which I have a prescription for. My symptoms were not bothersome until right after my first child and then everything fell apart. 
    • That is good news!  No celiac disease!   I would follow your doctor’s advice.  Consider adding in more veggies and fruit into your diet.  You can trial a gluten-free diet now that testing is over.  That might help.   Did they rule anything else out?  I would encourage you to obtain all your lab results and medical records.  It is a very good thing to maintain!
