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:

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!
