On the front page of this site there is a listing of this.

As far as vodka goes it depends on your friend's tolerence level of gluten. There is an opinion that all vodka is gluten-free as long as it is distilled as this process removes the gluten. Some celiacs that are very sensitive do not agree with this opinion and will not have it.

Your best bet would be to get Chopin potato vodka as it is not made from any grains.

I don't think I have ever came across a fruit juice that has gluten in it so orange juice and cranberry should be fine. I usually just have vodka and 7UP / Sprite.

Not sure where you are located but if you go to the website Redbrigebeer.com there is a way to look up liquor stores that carry it if you wanted to get a gluten-free beer. It is an Anheneur Busch product so it is pretty availble in liquor stores.

gluten-free beers that are less available are Bards and New Grist.

Other gluten-free Beers available in some areas:

St Peter's (not all are gluten-free so check)

Greene's

New Planet

Hard Ciders are gluten-free

A lot of the websites for liquor companies have a Facts area that will say "gluten free". Might check before heading to the store.

Do read the ingredients on the Bloody Mary Mix. Zing-Zang (a really tasty one) IS NOT SAFE.

I have no problem with any distilled liqour except sour mash bourbons, but I don't think that is caused by gluten.

Blue Ice is a highly rated vodka made in the USA from Idaho taters.

Luksusowa is a triple distilled Polish pototo vodka.

I'm sipping on a potato vodka/watermelon slush with a fresh basil leaf and a drizzle of cranberry juice. At the moment, I can't think of anything I'd rather be drinking.

Holy Moly, that sounds good. How do you make it? I have watermelons and fresh basil. Vodka is a staple in my house!

I have never had any problems with distilled spirits, and I'm fairly sensitive. I drink rye whiskey and Absolut vodka pretty regularly and do not get any of my usual gut reactions to gluten. Articles right here on Celiac.com say that distilled liquors do not contain gluten, as well as pretty much any book I've ever read on the subject.

I have however had a reaction to ingredients in flavoured mixers, particularly a margarita mix. I read the ingredients and it did not specifically say any of the usual suspects, but after drinking said margarita, I was doubled over in pain for the remainder of the evening! I can't remember what brand it was, but it was something that can typically be found in the drinks aisle of any grocery store. I stay clear of any of those now, and buy Baja Bob's mixes. All gluten free and sugar free, and very very tasty! Everything from margarita to whiskey sour mix! :D

There are quite a few gluten free beers on the market too thankfully. I like New Grist, it is the most available where I live (Whitby ON),but other brands will be available in other areas. Cidars are nice too, I like Strongbow, but it tends to give me hiccups. :blink:

I would stay away from Grey Goose - From Them:

Thank you for your recent inquiry regarding GREY GOOSE super-premium vodka. Please be advised that the alcohol used in processing the vodka contains 100% wheat grain. Therefore, GREY GOOSE vodka may contain trace amounts of gluten, because some of these ingredients are outsourced. The exact quantity is unknown.

If you still have questions, we suggest you contact your doctor as to whether or not you should consume such beverage products before consumption.

Sincerely,

Barbara Krupnick

Kettle 1's response:

Thank you for taking time to contact Ketel One. Your feedback is important to us.

In regard to your inquiry, please be advised that all pure (non-flavored) vodkas are considered to be gluten free due to their distillation process. However, we encourage you to contact your health care provider prior to the consumption of our products. We hope we were able to assist you with your inquiry.

Once again, thank you for contacting Ketel One.

Sincerely,

Meghann D.

The Ketel and Grey Goose answers sound like legalese "cover your a**" answers. I have used both with no reaction.

    • Ouch I am sorry . I know how painful bone,  joint, muscle pain can last weeks for me . Hopefully you'll be able to clear it quickly if otherwise you have been healthy this season. As others suggested some TLC , vitamins, mineral to assist may help. I find accupuncture helpful too or massage. As for a gluten-free pizza I can no longer have them due to additional intolerances to milk. I in past days found sabatassos gluten free pizza carried at my local Costco pretty yummy if you can find it.
    • Maybe it was not the chili.  Maybe you are sick with the flu?  Sometimes, we jump to the conclusion that celiac disease is the cause of our current symptoms.  I know I have done this.   Hormel is NOT considered good, but it is gluten free and safe.  I give it to my kid on top of gluten-free pasta or corn chips in her thermos.   Add plenty of cheese and it is pretty good.  Though I admit, I used to think the burritos and strips I purchased at the beach shack as a kid were SO good!  😆 Even bad cooks can make a simple chili.  Follow any recipe, but sub out the spices for Carroll Shelby’s Chili mix which is even certified gluten-free.   My recipe is 2 or 3 pounds of cooked ground beef, 32 oz can of beans (I usually make my own beans), a can of diced tomatoes, and Hatch’s green chili’s.  I suppose you could add some cocoa to change it up.  Do not hold me to this recipe regarding the ratios of ingredients as I do not follow one as my batch size changes, etc.  I cut back on the spices when I see my family sweat!  😆    
    • This is really a general post about alkalinity and being in the news these days. Alkalinity is totally trendy, but I encourage people to educate themselves about this and not rely on trends. I don’t mean to suggest that I know everything there is to know about this, but, for example this site (http://www.foodenzymeinstitute.com/articles/digestion-in-the-stomach.aspx?list=bydate) states: [Certain enzymes are] only active within the pH range of 3.0 to 5.0 and require the acid to maintain that pH. Pepsin is very specific in its action and is simply incapable of digesting food enzymes, which are very large molecules and are more than just protein. This sites (https://www.livestrong.com/article/459954-the-acid-base-balance-in-the-digestive-system/) states Antacids increase the pH in the stomach, which might make the enzymes in the stomach less effective. I think the focus on alkalinity and acidity in our foods currently en vogue is a huge distraction and a big waste of time. To me, it represents the two steps backwards in the notion of progress. I’ll end with Dr Andrew Weil — https://www.drweil.com/health-wellness/balanced-living/healthy-living/why-alkaline-water/ “Don’t waste your money. Alkaline water is being aggressively marketed for its purported health benefits. It is touted as the solution for everything from helping the body better absorb nutrients to reducing the risk of high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and heart disease, as well as boosting energy, helping you lose weight and slowing the aging process. It is also said to be “more hydrating” than any other type of water. Alkaline water is supposed to achieve all this by correcting the body’s pH, its acid-base balance. In fact, the human body needs absolutely no help in keeping its pH constant. “ /rant
    • After my hiatus hernia was diagnosed they advised me to eat small meals spread out across the day, maybe that may help?
    • Ah I've googled it, as you guessed I was thinking of chilli con carne, this is something different!  Sorry I can't be of help.                      ps, no offence, am sure it's lovely but I did find this hilarious: https://deadspin.com/the-great-american-menu-foods-of-the-states-ranked-an-1349137024
