Toasting with water? Bad form! If she's preggers, she toasts with wine and takes only a small sip. She then puts the glass down and discreetly switches to water. Peasant.

Wine in most other countries does not contain sulfites. The chemical is added to wine shipped to the US, because Americans think that the brownish cast a wine take on as it ages is unappetizing.

Also, not drinking alcohol doesn't necessarily mean she's pregnant. She also might be trying to get pregnant. I can only imagine the poutrage manufactured if she got pregnant, someone did the math and found a picture of her drinking when she was 2 weeks pregnant.

Wrong.

Sulfites are used as part of the normal winemaking process everywhere.

The US has sulfite info on the label because the asthma lobby is strong here, and because people drenched salad bars with sulfites in the 1970s and there were lots of asthmatics flopping around like dying fish at the neighborhood Ponderosa.

[citation needed]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sulfite#Wine

"Sulfites occur naturally in all wines to some extent. Sulfites are commonly introduced to arrest fermentation at a desired time, and may also be added to wine as preservatives to prevent spoilage and oxidation at several stages of the winemaking. Sulfur dioxide (SO2, sulfur with two atoms of oxygen) protects wine from not only oxidation, but also bacteria. Without sulfites, grape juice would turn to vinegar."

What you've read is not true. Sulfites have nothing to do with the formation of alcohol. Alcohol is produced during the fermentation process. Unfortified wines can never have more than about 14% alcohol, because at that level, it kills the yeast that makes the alcohol. This is when the vintner know the wine is ready to be strained and barreled.

Sulfites are a preservative that prevents fruits, vegetables and their juices from browning. It is added to the lettuce and other pre-prepared veggies served in many restaurants, too. I often buy French wines that do not have sulfites. Only the mass-produced wines for wide distribution in the US have the chemical added.

Your Wiki post pretty much says the same thing I did, except it is wrong in that sulfites are not introduced to arrest fermentation. Fermentation can be arrested at any time simply by filtering the wine to remove the yeast before they die naturally. A tiny amount of sulfites are produced as a byproduct of fermentation. But the sulfites in wine are produced by the winemaker bubbling sulfur dioxide through the wine after the fermentation is finished. Wine turns into vinegar because it is exposed to oxygen. Sulfites can slow this process. But a properly corked bottle of good wine can keep for centuries without turning to vinegar. Not only do I have a degree in biology, I have also made my own wine. I've never added sulfites.

Sulfur has been used of thousands of years as a preservative. A common practice in Appalachia is to slice apples and pack them in barrels in layers with sulfur in between. This will keep the apples form spoiling for many months.

Well, I know you're right at least. I have a family member who is allergic to sulfites, and her husband makes his own wine. She can't have any of it (or preserved apples, either, I guess.) The moral of the story: Fruit can be deadly in the wrong hands.

Pretty good article, but way too generalized for useful conclusions, especially regarding histamines. There are many different kinds of histamines in wine, even within the red varieties, and some people react more to some of them than to others. The suggestion to eat strawberries as a way to test for histamine sensitivity is simply wrong-headed for that reason. Many people who have headache-inducing histamine reactions to red wines find that they can still drink Merlot with little or no problem. In the white department, Pinot Grigio is frequently well-tolerated by the wine-sensitive. Bottom line is that a particular type of wine most certainly can be the cause of histamine-related headaches.

Maybe she just didn't want wine. I'm sick of people automatically assuming that the first time you don't drink, it means you're pregnant.

I just replied with "Well, I'm glad she learned to control herself, you know after what happened last time ..." and walked off.

Ah yes, it's been a few months since the latest rounds of "Kate is pregnant!"

Time to get back on the speculating so when she eventually does get pregnant, newsource can call "first dibs"

Last year/earlier this year it was claimed she was pregnant because she didn't eat a certain kind of bean/nut paste. Because noone has allergies or taste preferences, or in her case, she's probably trying to keep very slim so they won't get on her case for being fat.
