I have never heard coors light was gluten free, if it was tho, i would be so happy. That is what i have been drinking for years. Even tho i am happy with the redbridge, just wish it was cheaper lol

Coors Lite beer and eating commonly found oat meal is VERY unsafe for celiacs.

The beer contains malt and the oatmeal is most likely cross contaminated.

Dairy queen,

I second what MG noted. Both are very unsafe for Celiacs. Not having an overt reaction does not mean that the autoimmune reaction is not occuring.

Something to think about: If normal beers were gluten free, why would Anheuiser Busch, a company that makes many normal beers, feel the need to make a separate gluten free beer? :) If they know regular beer isn't gluten free, then it really means it isn't safe for us!

dq,

The oats only has the potential (or likelyhood) of cross-contamination. The beer is a gluten product, big difference.

This is from the Quaker Oats website.

Because oats are grown, stored, transported in bulk, they may contain trace amounts of wheat, rye and barley. USDA grain standards allow a certain percentage of other grains to be present in the oats. Therefore, gluten may be found in oats, even if very small amounts of these other grains are present.

So, Quaker even admits there can be a percentage of other grains present. This is more contamination than an allergen statement that says it was produced in a facility that also processes wheat!

Hi, Just wanted to inform this post that Coors Light NOW has their own Gluten Free beer.  They just launched their first GL beer which is called "Coors Peak".  It was released in Jan. 2015 in the Seattle and Portland OR area only to test the market with it.  It is being manufactured at it's own plant here in Oregon to assure against cross contamination.   Im pretty excited about it myself and am looking forward to trying it out.

Coors light is still not gluten free. They have a new beer that is coming out that is gluten free.

Yes that is what I was saying.  I edited my post to clarify that better.  :)

I have heard that the fermentation process breaks down the gluten in some types of beer. Some common beers test out at less that 5 parts per million. I only drink gluten removed beers right now but I am considering trying a few others. You can google the gluten content of different beers. I am not sure how safe or unsafe these beers are for people with Celiac disease.

Welcome to the board!  :)   Do note that the original post here is 8 years old and product info can change over time.  

 

While the fermentation may partially modify some things in the beer, they still contain gluten.  I recommend not drinking any beer that does not at least go through a gluten removal process, and it is my opinion that gluten-removed beers are not okay to market to Celiacs because the gluten content cannot be accurately measured. Do a search on the main page of the forum for "omission" for lots of great discussions on this.  While I respect your decision on drinking gluten removed beers, I highly recommend against drinking anything that does not go through that process, because having a beer is not as important as having good health.  Cheers :)

Thanks. Yeah I noticed the original post was old but there are some new ones. 

 

I know with omission beer some people have a strong reaction. Other people seem to tolerate it without any noticeable problems. I react strongly to gluten but can drink gluten removed beer without any problems. It took me a while to get comfortable with the idea but I am fine with it now. I can see why some people would want to play it safe and not consume anything made from wheat or barley.

 

The 'removal' process merely breaks the gluten proteins down in to smaller pieces. These smaller pieces are technically not gluten.  Some other regular beers have a lower gluten content than gluten removed beer. I think it depends on the individuals choice and on what they react to. Certainly not all people with Celiac disease are the same.

Widmer brewery in Portland makes a VERY good IPA that is certified at less than 20/ million . I had no reaction to it.

Industrial Quaker's oat production...? I have eaten regular old oats and had no problem, in restaurants, for example. But then I did.

Seems a gamble for me.

Funny I live in Golden, CO...home of Coors and literally live down the street from the main facility and have never heard of their Gluten free beer. Toured their facility too and they have never mentioned it.  Personally I'm scared of "gluten removed" beers...don't want to risk it. New Planet here in Colorado makes a great line of ales, dark, and light beers. I'm a fan, the Rasberry is my personal fav although they just released a dark ale that I'm excited to try.

 

On a side note about the oats...I can't do any oats even Redmill etc that aren't cross contaminated. The oat protein is very similar to wheat and I hear it's not uncommon.

New planet taste really good. There are also a few other types of gluten free beers that I like. I never knew that Coors made a gluten free beer either. I'll have to ask around to see if I can find it here.

 

I changed my mind about oats. I read that some oat brands were tested and had over 2000 ppm gluten due to contamination which is quite a bit. I might be getting a bit of a reaction from them I am not sure. I am going to avoid gluten removed beers for a while to make sure.

    • Enjoy Life/ Perky's Cereal
      I am super bummed. I just went to order my breakfast staple for the last 10 years from Amazon  - my case of Enjoy Life's Crunchy Rice - over the last number of years it has gone though name and packaging changes but it has always been there for me for breakfast There is no more in stock at  Amazon so I contacted the company and found out that they are no longer going to be making any cereals. No Crunchy Rice or Crunchy Flax .  Super sad.  I need to find a replacement and i am very picky. I am looking for a simple cereal not sweet and not mushy in milk. I am not able to eat corn so it can not contain corn.  Any ideas for me? Michele

    • Starting out
      Hi, as a Noob, I am a little intimidated by what may come to be a major change in my eating habits. My middle has been uncomfortable for a couple of years and I got no help or input from my GP so I went to a GI Dr who checked me throughly and found nothing out of sorts other than some minor irritation in my esophogus and prescribed a medication. My stomach/mid section still is uncomfortable and really disturbingly big. The GP finally suggested that I try being gluten free for 6 weeks to see if it made a difference. I have no other symptoms of gluten intolerance, as far I know. I've had anxiety issues longer than the stomach discomfort but I am having depression and lethargy so I guess I will try to rule this out. My question is, how strict does this have to be in order to ascertain that there is a correlation between my discomfort and possible gluten allergy? How stringent is the cross contamination issue, like using a toaster oven and other daily food prep precautions. Right now, eating like this for 6 weeks feels like 6 years. But if I start to feel better in a few weeks, I guess I'll make the transistion permanently, and I'd really like my gut to be normal looking, or at least not 7 months pregnant.  Female, nearly 70, 5'8", overweight at 170 lbs.  Thanks.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
