Are all wines and spirits gluten free? Even Vodka and Whiskey - considering what they are made of? I have been adhereing to a gf diet for 2 years now, had a reaction to vodka and, more recently, wine - the same symptoms as when I have gluten. - Regards - Marnie

Gluten free chocolate: from karen on 2010-04-06

Does any on know of a gluten/wheat free plain chocolate that is all 100\% free from including cross contamination of dairy and soy?

Also, the same for Cornflakes or Rice Krispies type cereals and cocoa?

I'm aware of the PPM issues and thats theres no chance of these products being a reality but if you don't ask!!


epilepsy, seizures and gluten: from Terry on 2010-04-14


My son was recently diagnosed with absence seizures, age 6.

No other significant medical history.

Father is celiac as well as brother.

Is there a neurologist in New York or the surrounding area who is open to a gluten/casein free diet as treatment?

Thank you


What you can eat on a gluten-free diet: from lydia on 2010-04-22

hi, recently diagnosed with CD, I understand what to do, but find it hard to shop for normal products - not gluten free section. how do I find out if the usual products contain gluten? not all the products give information, i.e. gherkins or herrings in spirit vinegar - is this gluten free?; why I cannot eat soya sauce or mustard, even some mixed seasoning? not sure about cooked meats; there's no mention of wheat or gluten in chocolates or sweets and lots of other products - does this mean it's safe to eat? what about a different types of cheese and spreads? or what if produced in a factory/on line where wheat containing products were also manufactured? should I avoid products advising 'may contain traces of wheat' ? is there any gluten allowance for coeliacs at all?

I even read the crazy stuff about not kissing a person who was eating food containing gluten or had a beer and girls wearing lipstick -need to brush teeth with a gluten free toothpaste - it this for real?

I do not want to be limited to shop in a gluten free section. I can give up bread and pasta easily, but rice cakes don't fill me up and I feel hungry all the time, at the same time I do not want to put on weight and I am not keen on cooking..

Not an easy one, I know, but please help if you can. many thanks

Re Gluten Intolerance and Ulcerative Colitis: from on 2010-05-06

I suffered from Ulcerative Colitis in my twenties and went through all of the treatments ( prednisone, hydrocortisone enemas, asulizine, etc.) I then read a few books like the Sugar Blues and The Yeast Connection by Dr. William Crook- and discovered that I had a gluten and wheat intolerance. I followed a strict gluten free diet for many years and stayed in remission! Healtthy. I am now 45 and have been eating out a lot and have run into some wheat tortillas that I thought were corn. I have had terrible bleeding, pain, etc for the last month. I am convinced that there is a connection- despite medical research and doctors advice to the contrary. I would highly recommend that anyone with an Ulcerative Colitis diagnosis try some empiracle testing- striclty remove all wheat and gluten products-including spelt and oats- and take some acidophilous. twenty something years in remission is proof enough for men, good luck
