V8 Juice Illegal It has tomato paste listed as an ingredient. Elaine has listed tomato paste as being illegal. It is also made from concentrate and has added sugar.
Vanillin But not in concentrated form see Vanillin
Vegetable stearate I believe that stearate is always a fat (stearic acid) so vegetable stearate would be a fat from some vegetable like coconut, etc. -- Elaine
Vegetables (canned) Illegal Canned vegetables are not permitted; they must either be fresh or frozen.
Vinegar Red and white wine vinegar also white and cider vinegars are allowed but check the label for added illegals. Balsamic vinegar is not allowed as it has added sugar. However you can make your own legal balsamic vinegar substitute see scdrecipe
Vodka Only have it occasionally.

I was shocked at the amount of glowing reviews the Specific Carbohydrate Diet had received but was still in disbelief that this could actually work. I am four weeks in and have gone from symptoms that were quite debilitating to now being at the point where I at times forget I have a chronic disease. Those with Crohn's know how great a feeling that is or would be for those that haven't experienced it.
