I was talking to someone over the weekend who's husband has celiac disease. She told me a few odd things. She said that he drinks coors light and eats quaker oats, safely.

Has anyone else heard of or done this???

I was a little confused, but just let her talk! :blink:

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.

    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Hi everyone.  There is a lot in the press here in the UK about prediabetes and diabetes.  I am an apple shape, as opposed to a pear, which I gather puts me more at risk.  I have a lot of relatives with types 1 and 2 diabetes.  I was diagnosed with celiac disease three years ago and the diet has been going so well that I am now putting on weight - I realise I have been eating far too many nice goodies from the Gluten Free Cake Aisle at Marks & Spencers, etc.   I had a bit of a shock this week as I have been very thirsty and as per usual started panicking so instead of doing that my neighbour encouraged me to see my doctor.  Good plan. The preliminary tests show no sugar in my urine; my blood glucose was high normal but I had just eaten.  She is sending me off for one of those HbaIC tests I think it is called just to be sure but she says she thinks I will be fine.  But to cut a long story short, I realise I have got to sort out this sweet tooth of mine. Wake up time! But I am confused. I have been searching a lot on line and there seems to be such contradictory information.  Only this week there was a news item on the BBC about the argument for fewer carbs/full fat - and then Public Health England disputing it.  Then, to go back to the original argument, the BBC filmed a chap at the doctors who had cut his carbs and ate full fat (as well as healthy fruit & veg) and he had lost weight and come off his diabetes meds. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-36345768 I'm thinking prevention is better than cure so I wanted to know, can anyone recommend a website or book that sets out a sensible eating plan, tried and tested, that they have discovered.    Or just any tips?  And I should say - I do get hungry between meals and for many years have suffered from the shakes when I don't eat enough - what is good food to eat for snacking?
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      I am in same boat, yesterday my stomach was churning and bloated and I don't know what the cause was.  How about keeping a food diary? Just note what you ate and how you feel. A few days may be sufficient to discern a pattern, either some rogue product or a previously unknown intolerance. I have read that after gluten is removed further intolerances which were hidden can become apparent.  I don't know whether you could cut yourself some slack from a full vegan approach whilst your body heals? If not, maybe you could substitute say milk with coconut milk or similar to give your body a break whilst keeping calcium levels high? If you join coeliac uk you can check your sauces etc on their gluten-free database, they'll also send you a book which became my bible until I got a hang of which brands I could eat safely. Finally, have you excluded cross contamination from pots and pans, toasters, shared condiments etc?  Good luck!
    • Blood results - odd
      My results were similar – Low ferritin but normal B12. Although my ferritin levels were low, my Iron serum levels were normal. So might be worth getting your iron levels checked out to see if you have any deficiency in Iron. Also I was deficient in Vitamin D, which is perhaps more of a problem in England rather than the US - Our milk isn’t supplemented with vit D and we obviously have less sunshine.
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam, If you are going to continue the celiac testing with an endoscopy, you need to keep eating gluten until it's done. It can be hard for vegetarians to keep their vitamin D levels up.   This Vitamin D  Council link has some good info on ways to boost your levels. https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/
    • Blood results - odd
      Your ferritin was very low!  My result was a 2 when I was diagnosed.    I hard a hard time breathing and the fatigue was awful due to low hemoglobin levels.  But after going gluten free and taking iron for a few months, I quickly recovered from iron-deficiency anemia.  I still have hemologobin levels that are slightly below range due to Thalassemia which is genetic and my body has adjusted for it.   My B12 and folate levels are  super high.  My B12 is over 2000!  Yeah, I googled and ruled out cancers, etc.  Looks like some of us do not process man-made B12 often included in supplements.  I opted for natural sources of B-12 and folate and my levels have come down a bit.   Let us know your results.  Read the Newbie 101 section under "Coping" within this forum for tips.   Be patient.  It can take months, to years to feel good.  But it will happen!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
