2 2

15 posts in this topic

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!

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.

    • Eeek confused! Positive biopsy, negative blood test???
      Thank you! My PA said that she still thinks it's celiac....but I don't feel like she's fully explained why. Some people are hard to get a solid answer out of! I think I'm gonna get a second opinion somewhere else.....appreciate the feedback. Makes me feel a little less crazy

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Hello Elle Among this online community you are not alone in either your symptoms or how you feel about visiting the doctor.  I for one understand the anxiety that you are going through, my own weird nerve stuff and other puzzling symptoms have had me really scared at times.   So much you are going through could very well be gluten related, it really could.   But if it isn't, in the end it is worth trying to find out what it is going on so you can get the treatment you deserve. After all, it could have a really simple, treatable explanation, once the doctors know what it is. I remember reading on another website something that has helped me with my own health anxiety - if one can summon up the courage to go and see the doctor, one should pat oneself on the back and be proud of oneself for doing the right thing.  I'm not terribly keen on the idea of being a proud person - but I think it was meant in the best sense, and it is always good to do the right thing, even if one does it afraid!  It always makes me feel that bit stronger when I'm in the waiting room at the doctors! There is lots of great advice above.  Do take it and make sure you come back if you need further support. There are some fantastic people here to help.

      Hi Elle......do you think you would have better luck obtaining a full Celiac panel from your GP or a gastro doc?  You really need to be tested for Celiac because of all your symptoms.  Many other people probably thought they were dying of some horrible disease because they had so many symptoms that docs ignored.  Very common problem for us.  Plus, your Mom has had "IBS" all her life.  I should add that IBS is not a diagnosis.  No one needs to be told their bowel is irritated......they already know that.  This is where the medical establishment, no matter where you live in this world, fail us.  They need to find the root cause and there always is one.  You also do not need to have any gastro issues to be a Celiac but you do have some, along with all your symptoms mentioned.  Anxiety is a huge problem with Celiac Disease and for many, it goes away just fine on the gluten-free diet, without need of meds...which should always be a last resort measure.  I have never had an anxiety problem in my entire life until after I was diagnosed with Celiac.  I may have had it but with all the other numerous symptoms I had, the anxiety may have gotten buried somewhere.  But guess what? On the extremely rare occasion when I am glutened or cc'd, I get major anxiety for about 4 days and then its gone. B12 is a water soluble vitamin so whatever you don't use, it exits the body in your urine.  It is pretty damn hard to overdose on the stuff.  I take a B vitamin everyday, very high quality ones and my B12 is usually in the high 600 range.  Optimally, it should be between 650-800 so yours was abysmal pre-supplementation.  Absorption can also be affected by PPI's.  You did notice improvement with the tingling sensation and fatigue once your levels were way up so take notice of that. My biggest advice is to get your mother and you tested for celiac, with a FULL PANEL. Then you'll have to wait and see what that shows. You could always trial a gluten-free diet if all testing is complete and the results were either negative or inconclusive. That sometimes happens with people, especially if they have Celiac's other cousin......non-celiac gluten intolerance.  This would be the best route to go with regards to your anxiety, unless it becomes disabling and you need meds, short term. Make sure you tell them that anxiety is a HUGE symptom of Celiac and it is not normal for younger people to have extreme anxiety like that, for no reason. Good luck to you and please call and make the appointment. I understand your fear....I hate doctors and it's pure mistrust. But sometimes you have to address a problem head on.    
    • newbie diagnosed mom - testing 8 yr old now
      good to know. I am not going for a biopsy. I do not have health insurance, i know i know please no political comments. My children do. My husband and I don't right now. If we lived in another state, we would have coverage. I just made an appt to do a full blood panel for my daughter this week. I would rather find some confirmation for her through a blood test, i feel a scope is too invasive for a child.

      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.
