Prairie Path Beer Is Not Gluten Free :(
0

3 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

As a person with celiac disease, I was super excited after trying Two Brothers Prairie Path beer, after claiming they are gluten free (with less than 5ppm of gluten). I had gotten sick off this beer 3x. So I decided to do my own test. I used the EZ gluten strips which detect any trace amount of gluten. This kit tells you if a product is Negative for gluten, Positive, High Positive, or Very High Positive for gluten.

 

Results: "very high positive for gluten"

I was so sad! For a company to claim they are gluten free, they are not!!!

 

This kit is great and I highly recommend it. It does cost a lot, but I think it's worth testing products you have in your diet a lot. For me: I gotta check my booze :)

 

I tested Red Box wine, Jack Daniels whiskey, and Jamesons whiskey: they all came back clear: Negative for gluten!!! This kit is very accurate as I have tested crackers and leftovers from a restaurant I got sick off of and they as well tested positive for gluten.

 

Just thought I'd let ya know.

 

So do NOT buy Prairie Path unless you want to go diarrhea and destroy your intestines.

I think it is a great tool to have a few of those home test kits for when you just can't figure out what has the gluten in it.  Worth the price in my opinion.  

 

I checked out their website http://www.twobrothersbrewing.com/prairie-path-faqs/ and it looks like it is one of the gluten removed beers.  There is another one called omission that causes a lot of commotion about whether or not it is safe- I won't drink it.  Of course I was never a beer lover anyways.  But anyways, if you haven't written them to let them know, I think that would be a good idea.

Agree!! Emailing them is a great thing to do. Just let them know. I'm scared of anything these days!

    • egs1707. Are you in Canada?  It's NOT a good idea to go gluten free between now & the GI appt. and here's why.... MOST of us have MUCH stronger reactions to gluten when we go back on it for the endoscopy. A lot of people have had such strong reactions that they have been entirely unable to complete the challenge and have to call it quits. This means they never get an official dx. It's your call, you make the choice. However, I will say that you don't have to eat a lot of gluten, a couple saltines or a slice of bread per day. 
    • You mentioned the tight head. Yes, both my celiac sibling and I had head pressure. Mine was horrible last glutening with eye pain as well. Like someone put a vice around my temples. I swore it felt like a parasite infected my gut, thyroid and brain. It is going away mostly, still have it on and off a bit.  My brother said his naturopath informed him some celiacs get a bit of inflammation in the brain.   
    • Hi All this is my blood test result 1.immunogloblulin serum 203 ( 87-350) 2.Deamidated Gliadin IGA  4 ( 0-19 negative) 3.Deamidated Gliadin IGG 3(0-19 negative) 4.Transglutainase IGA <2 ( 0-3 negative) 5.Transglutainase IGG <2 ( 0-3 negative) does it mean most likely no celiac ? thanks.  
    • At the moment it's microwave rice packets as it needs to be something easy for lunch at work. What do you choose for breakfast? At the moment I have gluten-free porridge oats with fruits but also seeing oats are a bit of a gamble in the early days. Trying to figure out how long a reaction takes to show up i.e. if I feel ropey later in the day is it really lunch as I'm blaming at present or actually is it something from the morning or even night before? The food is the toughest bit for me right now; wasn't that great with it before so will need plenty ideas from you good people... seems I'm in the right place though   
    • I know what you're going through - it's that grieving process and it's tough.  I was diagnosed in 2013, and aside from an occasional pity party, I don't look back. I have my restaurants where I feel safe, I have the food I know I can eat, and I get on with my life.  I'm lucky that I live in a big city with lots of options, but you can make this work, and you will feel better and once you do, you'll stop grieving.  The people on this site helped enormously. It is tough in the beginning to know if you've been 'glutened' vs. just going through withdrawal.  For that reason alone, it's best to avoid restaurants for a little while and be careful at home - just to be sure what's happening.  Eventually you'll be able to get back to your version of 'normal'.  Oh, I also have hypothyroid/hashimoto's.  No big deal, I take synthroid. Quinoa, eggs, nuts and beans for protein.  You don't have to go crazy on the cooking.  Just eat a lot of whole foods.  There are a lot of complicated recipes out there, but now may not be the time.  Rice noodles in veggie bouillon - easy and cheap.  gluten-free pasta with olive oil, parmesan and garlic - easy.  I eat a lot of rice and have never had a problem - you're not getting it out of one of those bulk bins, are you?  That could be contaminated.  Go with packaged.  Do you have access to the Macro Vegetarian brand of prepared rice dishes (in the refrigerated section).  They have several that are gluten free, they're delicious heated and with a little gluten-free soy sauce.  They're my go to on days I don't want to cook. Good luck!
