The "additives" are there to clarify the wine primarily. You don't drink them. They're removed either by filtration or sedimentation prior to bottling. Not a problem in my opinion. Not that they would be problematic even if you drank them.

Mandy, there's only 4 carbs in a 5 ounce pour of red wine. I think it's totally reasonable to fit in 5-10 grams of carbs a week from wine. That's less carbohydrate than is in most fruits. A 3/4 cup serving of strawberries comes in at 8 grams of... (more)

I think the apple cider vinegar is best nutritionally to draw out the minerals but...if you do not like the taste then I would just use ascorbic acid(vitamin C powder) which you can get in a health food store. It has a mild taste.

If wine doesn't impede your goals, I wouldn't worry about it. We all have our own version of what paleo means to us, and wine fits into my version just fine! :)

Nopalea Juice is becoming increasingly important as a stronger connection is made between inflammation and disease, including heart attacks. The natural anti-inflammatory nature of this all-natural juice makes it an obvious substitute for soda pop. (more)

For gum, you could try Falim gum from Turkey (available on Amazon for about $0.10/piece). It has no sugar or other sweeteners, and light or no flavor.

Does it make sense to think that the fermentation process in creating alcoholic drinks (even beer) does a little bit to reduce the negative effects of the grains, etc. that are in there?

In less technical terms, it has an initial depressive effect, but as your system processes the alcohol your body gets 'wake up' signals.
