In the second part, we talked about the SCD legal wine produced by the fermentation process. This guide examines the legal SCD LPC, which are oral liquids that contain ethanol produced by distillation of fruits, cereals or vegetables. If you missed a game, I`ll make sure you go back and reread it to better understand how alcohol affects your digestive system. Now you may be thinking, “Great, I`m free at home as long as I stick to the legal list!” Well, not so fast. I`m inclined to share a few details with you before making your final decision the next time you pick up a bottle. For more information on individual vegetables, see the Legal/Illegal list on the Breaking the Cycle website.

None with an illegal SCD starch coating or that may contain illegal ingredients used in the roasting process (as is the case with most commercial mixed nuts). Most vinegars are legal, with the exception of balsamic vinegar (except homemade; some recipes exist online). Most teas and coffee are allowed. For more information, see the Legal/Illegal list on the Break the Cycle website. All fresh or frozen meats without illegal SCD ingredients. Carefully check the labels for additives in the solutions. Preferably organic. Brandy is considered a spirit and is made from distilled wine, but the problem lies in the fact that most brandy comes with sugar and caramel-colored additives. Cognac is actually a kind of highly regulated brandy.

Originally, I had high hopes, only to discover that it usually ends with sugar and caramel additives (except probably a few extremely expensive brands). Port wines are wines that are stopped prematurely during the fermentation process by adding a natural grape alcohol called Aguardiente. This leaves residual sugar in Port wine and makes it illegal. After all, sherry is a drink that starts as a fully fermented wine, but is then enriched with brandy, making it illegal. Wine and whiskey are legal, brandy and sherry are not.

We explained why liquors and cordials are illegal and yes, American schnapps is a kind of liquor. But what about brandy, cognac, port wine and sherry? Knowing what you can and can`t eat with the SCD diet can seem complicated! In this short guide, we list all legal and illegal foods (according to dietary principles).

Whisky is a distilled liqueur made from cereal puree. Whiskies are strictly regulated worldwide and can be made from different types of cereals, including: barley, malted barley, rye, malted rye, wheat and corn (corn). Whiskies are divided into sub-classifications according to the grain used. However, all whiskies are distilled at 80-90% ABV and then cut with water. Whisky derives most of its aroma from the type of container (usually wood) in which it ripens. Even without understanding the sub-classifications of whiskies, it is useful to know that all whiskies in the SCD diet are legal. Based on the fact that Elaine said she agrees with the occasional use of light rum, I think it`s fair to assume that light, golden rums can be consumed relatively safely on the SCD diet. When evaluating dark and spicy rums, the picture becomes a little cloudier unless you receive written confirmation from the manufacturer that these rums may contain artificial additives, making them illegal.

I also want to warn people that rums are made with yeast, which may or may not be fully consumed during the fermentation process, making rum a riskier alcohol that can be consumed in the diet. Rum and tequila are not mentioned in the legal/illegal list on the pecan bread list. However, I found an old letter from Elaine that said eating light rum was fine, but not dark rum, but I couldn`t find anything in the sickle cell world that talks about tequila.
