It doesn't really work that way, if one has a gluten problem, one needs to avoid it all together.

However, I have just found a great gluten-free beer company. Have you tried New Planet? It really tastes like real beer. They are award wining and have three flavors.

I like New Planet, too. They are only in a few states right now - the ones around Colorado where it is made. They are working on the permits needed to sell in more states.

There is really no difference between low gluten & lots of gluten... If you're going to poison yourself it really doesn't matter how much poison you take! BevMo has some great gluten free beers, I think my favorite so far is Red Sail.

Gotta vote against the New Planet. I wanted to like it, really I did. Unfortunately it's costs more than Spaten, and it's about on the same level as gluten free "bread".

Learn to like wine.

Have you tried New Planets Pale Ale? Hubby thinks that one taste the best out of their flavors. Close to real thing. We do agree about price though :(

I do have to admit that when someone said on the board a long time ago that Bud Light was low enough to not effect us I did try one. Boy did it taste good as I was a big fan of beer prediagnosis and the sorghum beers to me taste nasty. Result was not pretty. I might as well have had a piece of cake or some phyllo. Just not worth it.

You have to keep in mind that celiac is autoimmune and it takes very, very little gluten to start the autoimmune action.

As someone else mentioned I now do wine mixed with soda when I want something refreshing on a hot day.

You're in the right place. Should have just explained better. We have people who have doctors, dieticians & mother-in-laws tell them "a little won't hurt them". :o

You should probably stay gluten-full until you get your blood tested. Celiac is genetic.

With a kid with Celiac, you will probably be eating gluten light or gluten free at home. Just makes it easier.

I had one of the tests(not sure what one I am getting a physical in a month and will find out which one) and it was negative for any gluten issue. once I figure out how to use this website I will setup a signature. I can not find the CP.......I have about 20,000 posts on the "Auto forums" so I am sure I will figure this one out......thx again for the help

You have found one of the best sites there is for info. Before you go gluten light please do get at least a celiac panel done. All first degree relatives of someone diagnosed is advised to do so even if they don't seem to have the typical celiac symptoms. Celiac is genetic and it is common for there to be more than one in a family and with the different presentations that are found with celiac even if you don't have tummy troubles it needs to be ruled out.

Yep AB makes Red Bridge. Its actually really good. Gluten Free made from sorghum.

I live in STL (home of AB) and can get it and almost in grocery store.

There is another called New Grist that is really good also, but harder to find for me.

Its only in a handfull of upscale eating places that I know of around me.

Also, Mike's Hard Lemonade is claiming gluten-free now. Not sure but I drank one the other day when they changed the label

and didn't feel sick at all.

And Woodchuck cider is gluten-free.

Just some other options.

I agree about Redbridge! I drink it all the time, and they have it at our new Twins Stadium here in Minnesota! I was so excited, I ordered two as they are only at a few locations around the stadium. I had been drinking them out of the bottle the whole time, and at the game they poured them into a cup. They tasted like real beer!! I actually had three of the people I was with taste it as I was positive I got real beer. Lol...maybe for people who don't like it, they should pour it into a glass!...or maybe after two years of gluten-free my taste buds are playing tricks on me.

Woodchuck is always yummy :)

As for regular beers that are lower gluten (if that's what you end wanting because you don't have celiac), I don't think most of us know what they are. But definitely stay away from any beer that uses wheat.

I have a friend who eats reduced gluten. She's more sensitive to lectins than traces of gluten. She tolerates light colored beers like Heineken or Corona. I imagine she could drink Bud or Miller but why? LOL! She does not drink stout beers or nut brown ales. They seem to disagree with her.

    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Hi!  I know I'll never forget the day I was told after an endo- and colonoscopy that I indeed had celiac disease.  I immediately went to a Trader Joe's grocery store and bought some gluten-free things to eat. about a month later I had a Total meltdown in my car outside a grocery store---feeling So Sorry for myself!   I cried and said I'll Never to able to eat what I want to again! that was 10 years ago and gluten-free foods have come a long way.... I love having a gluten-free everything bagel and delicious gluten-free 'Oreo cookies'----neither of which there were 10years ago. Everyone who has responded so far have Great Tips!  The best news is that your Diet will cure you!  I do not know of any other condition where this is true!! BTW---some of your friends and family Will understand and will make sure you aren't hung out to dry foodwise........and others just won't/can't understand and will think that just avoiding bread is enough..... Be kind, but don't risk your health to be nice to someone who forgot or doesn't understand. keep reading!  Keep trying different gluten-free foods to find what you like!   Best wishes!!  
    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      It has never even been turned on. As I recall, it is capable of milling oats as well as popcorn. I don't know about coconut or other nuts but I can find out.
    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      The very first question is.... Was that Retsel grain mill used for gluten before your diagnosis? If the answer is yes then the 2nd question is can it be COMPLETELY DISASSEMBLED and cleaned in every single nook & cranny? If the answer to that is no, then you can't use that grain mill because you will be continually cross contaminating yourself.  3rd question: Will that mill do things like coconut? The grains that are oily. Some mills won't. Better check that out. I got a NutriMill & it can not do oily grains or things like coconut. No oats as they're oily, same for nuts. Rice flour it does a great job on & gets it as fine as I can buy it.
    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      Boy, you've sure had a rough time of it! My heart goes out to you! I love your positive attitude about coping until your villi heal more. THAT is your greatest ally in this journey. Okay, now to your problems...... Your gut is still damaged. You aren't healed yet - you know that as you've stated it. It can be really wonky for the first 6 months to a year. It's like being on a roller coaster ride & you can have good days & sucko days & good weeks & weeks that are the absolute pits. My advice would be to ditch all the processed gluten free foods. You'll heal faster & have less problems eating "whole foods" --- fresh or frozen fruits & veggies, meats & dairy as long as you can tolerate it. Forget the corn flakes & rice krispies. They may be gluten free but it's still processed food & therefore full of all kinds of chemicals & preservatives & stuff you don't need. We always tell people to spend at least the 1st 6 months avoiding the processed foods. Time enough to get into those after you heal right? How about for breakfast you have a couple eggs, either fried or pan scrambled. Some fruit -- bananas, pears, whatever floats your boat, a glass of milk, some yogurt. You may need to have well cooked foods for a while & that means mushy veggies as well as fruit. From the sound of the extent of damage you had I would say that's where you ought to be at this point. You don't want to make things any harder on your gut than necessary for the time being. You do have one great big thing in your favor & that's your age. You're young & will by all rights heal up much faster than us old geezers who weren't diagnosed until our 50's, 60's & 70's after a lifetime of damage. Please read our Newbie 101 & follow the links contained within the threads. This will give you a ton of valuable information. Just click on it:  
    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Okay, this makes more sense now. Was the celiac test in 2014 part of the checking to find out what was wrong with you which resulted in the Barrets dx?  NO, a colonoscopy will not diagnose celiac disease at all. The biopsies for celiac disease are taken in the small intestine not the colon. You need to get your records, both past & present. If you could post them here then we'd have a much better idea of what's going on and be more able to tell you what you might be looking at. When we say you might not have been given the right celiac blood panel, we mean the FULL, CURRENT panel and not just a primary screening. The screening is good but it does miss celiacs. We have members who tested negative on all but the DgP portions so when one has a situation like yours, you need to cover all the bases & have the complete panel done. Here it is: Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA   
      Also can be termed this way: Endomysial Antibody IgA
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
      GLIADIN IgG
      GLIADIN IgA
      Total Serum IgA 
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG   If you post your results on the blood work make sure to post the reference ranges listed because different labs have different ranges. It would be imperative to know if the doc took biopsies for celiac when he was doing the endoscopy. How many & where exactly from? Some docs just rely on visual & that's not good enough to dx celiac disease. Biopsies are the only way.

      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.
