Red wine vs white wine

Hi,

Do you see any reason why white wine throws me off quite a bit ( a glass of it and causes loose motion next day, not long lasting but obvious impact every time), while red wine is just fine ( a glass consistently every day without any harm).

Again, the underlying reason can be cancer related rather than gluten damaged gut or food sensitivities but still so weird.

Anyone who has had the same experience?

Does it happen to be french white wine? The traditional method in france to clarify wine is to mix in a flour mix that captures the cloudiness and settles it to the bottom. Side effect is that some gluten is left behind.

Modern french methods don’t do this.

It’s a produce of new zealand. Contains milk products such as the red wine. I’m not that sensitive to milk products either. Perhaps i need to look somewhere else for the culprit and try it again (There was one more suspect actually, so i’ll write another topic for it)

Thank you

For me, the casein protein in milk, which is similar to the gluten protein, causes lots of smelly wind and loose stools about 6 hours later. Then brain fog 24 hours later and it is like my gut gets paralyzed as I then get constipated.

That’s what used to happen to me before i cut off gluten. I’ve never heard these symptoms from anyone else before. It made me think i might actually not be cancer but just going through some food tolerances.

Red wine i’ve consumed days in a row and didn’t do any harm has that milk solids and all too. It can only be that white wine has more and as much as i can’t tolerate perhaps. Small amounts are ok for me, i know that for a fact because i eat cheese(tasty cheese in small amounts)

Thank you

I don’t understand why you say that wine has milk solids in it. Is it some sort of mixed drink?

I need to correct that, sorry. What it says is ‘Produced with milk products. Traces may remain’.

White wine contains a lot more sulphites a damaged gut can be susceptible to them.

If you drink too much of any sort of wine you run the chance of damaging your stomach lining. Some people also react badly to the sulphides in wine.

I feel more odd effects with red wine. I assume because it has more sulfates? White wine is fine with me though.

Me too. Red wine goes straight through, but white is fine. Anything with anthocyanin sets me off.

Could you be intolerant to yeast? I think white wine is much more laden with it than red. I have to watch out for wines, especially Australian ones, since they often contain milk or egg proteins (both of which I’m intolerant to, along with wheat and gluten)!

Maybe. I kept drinking reds regularly and they’re just fine. Surprising to see there are others for whom red or white makes a difference. Even if the other way around.
