Estrella Damma Daura

14 posts in this topic

I saw a thread about Estrella Damm Daura, but still had a question... Has anyone on here actually reacted to it? I'm trying the different gluten free beers to see what I like best, which is difficult because they're hard to find. So far I like Bard's the best, closely followed by Redbridge. I wanna try Estrella if I can find it, but I wanna make sure no one is reacting to it, because I know there's still a bit of gluten in there, but WAY under the threshold where we should react to it. Also read on their site, http://www.estrelladamm.com/en/daura_gluten_free_beer/, that they use dedicated lines to produce the beer. If anyone here has tried it, can you let me know your impressions, and most of all, did you react at all?

It is hard to find but well worth the search! I'm not a big beer drinker mainly I fry gluten-free foods in beer batter but I always taste some first... This in my opinion is very good. I also think Greeen's also is one of the better brands...I have or know some real beer drinkers & it passed thier test!So did Green's but others they did not like!

I'm trying Bard's tonight with sausage, sauerkraut, apples, potatoes, and onions! Yum!

I'll look for Estrella. Have you tried a BevMo or Total Wine?

Nope, I haven't tried either... There's no Total Wine locations near me, and their website sucks ass. There is one local store that has a ton of foreign beer and wine though, so I'm gonna go look this weekend. Everyone is saying Estrella is expensive, but according to BevMo it's $7.99 for a 6 pack... That's not too bad.

I've tried it once or twice and didn't have any issues. I think they test it to less than 20ppm. If I had to rank what I've had:

Bards

Estrella

Redbridge

New Grist

Bards I quite like, and I used to always drink darker beers. Redbridge is drinkable, but it's about on par with a generic light beer. I would get wine or cider over New Grist.

I hated New Grist... The after taste was terrible.

No offense but I absolutely detest beer. So, why am I posting, you ask? Wondering if there is such a thing as good gluten-free Guiness in Canada for British Steak and Ale Pie. I can handle it in that but definitely not to drink.

Well, I found the beer, and tried it. Sadly, I felt it was only ok. Bard's is still the king of gluten free's in my mind. PLUS Estrella gave me very minor gluten symptoms 2 days or so after I drank it.

Can you get Greens Dubble Dark? I think that's the name. I think it would be good to cook with.

Thanks, Karen. I will check to see whether it is available here. My husband has a fierce hankering for some Steak and Ale Pie! Well, um, so do I... :D

Have you looked at New Planet Beer?

I'm another non-beer drinker posting, LOL, but my father and brother claim this is the best gluten-free beer they've had. I know they've had Bard's and Redbridge, so that's probably what they were comparing to.

It looks like the company is small but expanding, and so not available in every state. They do have a website, however.

My wife, who has celiac, really loves the taste of Daura, but it has been giving her symptoms, so last week we tested it using the EZ Gluten test kit from ELISA Technologies. We came up with a reading that did not match any of the results described in the test kit booklet, so we called ELISA Tech directly. According to their representative, the reading we got was a positive for a high level of glutenin (as opposed to gliadin). The rep explained that the most commonly used tests for gluten measure only gliadin, while EZ Gluten measures both glutenin and gliadin levels (both of which are components of gluten). So if the brewery, Estrella Damm, is only measuring the gliadin levels, it's possible that they could come up with a reading of less than 6 ppm. But a low reading for gliadin is not the same as a low reading for gluten. Daura may still have very high glutenin levels, thereby causing celiac reactions.

I've written to Estrella Damm for more information about their testing process, but they have not responded. It's interesting that Daura has not been certified gluten-free. (Unless perhaps there's some kind of rule that entering a beer into a gluten-free beer contest is a substitute for gluten-free certification.)

I'm so glad you shared this! DAURA BEER MADE ME SO SICK. Definitely, definitely glutened. Maybe this is why.

    • Pre Biopsy gluten intake
      Here is a link that will tell you what each of the major celiac disease centers recommend. I reference this site because the woman writing it is a doctor herself who has celiac disease and is also a member of this site. She's done the research for us & put it all together in one post: http://www.thepatientceliac.com/2014/07/06/hope-for-a-less-challenging-gluten-challenge/
    • Sjogren's, Celiac, or both?
      Thanks for the input! cyclinglady - I've been trying not to be mad at my GP for ruling out Celiac at a time when I didn't know any better, but now I'm PO'd! Going back on gluten is going to suck. I was accidentally exposed last week, and I didn't go to the bathroom for two days, had my first headache in months, and wanted to sleep all day. Eight to 12 weeks sounds awful! I wish she would have done that test when she was taking blood by the pint for all sorts of stuff I didn't have. Blerg. ravenu5 - Thanks for sharing about your constipation. I didn't know how normal it was to not have diarrhea. But my constipation was also basically untreatable by normal means. I used to laugh when people suggested prunes. I could have probably eaten them by the bucket (though the most I ever tried at once was a dozen or so). I was so shocked when I started going to the bathroom regularly after eliminating gluten. The last time going to the bathroom wasn't an issue for me was when I was a kid! Gemini - It's nice to hear from someone else with Sjogren's! I haven't met anyone else in real life with Sjogren's, and I've never posted on a forum before. And thank you for being sorry about my miscarriage. It super-duper sucked. The miscarriage drove me to a third rheumatologist because I felt like I needed to know what was wrong with me. With two healthy, full-term pregnancies in the last five years and no history of problems, my risk of miscarriage was low, and I felt like the timing (all these new symptoms and the miscarriage) probably wasn't a coincidence. (But my kids have been a huge comfort. My youngest turned a year old the day after the miscarriage, and I feel so terrible for anyone who has to go through a miscarriage without a baby to cuddle. I don't know how it's done!) The first two rheumatologists I went to after my positive ANA and SSA said I didn't have Sjogren's! (Is there a space on this forum for doctor rants?) Anyway, Thank you so much for sharing with me. It's really nice to hear other voices on these things.  
    • blistex etc
      I use Blistex and I can tell you it's gluten free. I happen to use this one because I'm sensitive to sunscreen plus I just like a simple product without a lot of crud in it. http://www.blistex.com/products/simple-and-sensitive/ BTW, here's a reference from Jan. 2014 where Blistex responded: Blistex:  This company got back to me on January 31st, 2014.  They said “…all of our Blistex lip care products are gluten-free; meaning that they are free from wheat, rye, barley, and oats.” Here's a link to the site which reported this. They list numerous other lip products as well. http://www.thesavvyceliac.com/2014/01/30/gluten-free-lip-balm-mission-impossible/
    • Pre Biopsy gluten intake
      I was recommended to take at least 10g of gluten daily prior to the endoscopy.
    • Pre Biopsy gluten intake
      Hello,   So I've got a endoscopy schedueled on May 20th and my question is how much gluten do I need to be eating to maintain sensitivity levels? I found out 10 days ago that I potentially could have celiac. I had been on a pretty full gluten diet up until that night and then tried to cut it out for a few days until I found out more information. During my 10 days I have introduced gluten a couple times already. GI said to continue eating gluten up until the procedure. If I haven't really been on a gluten free diet, only a couple days here and there so far, how much gluten do I need to maintain for a proper biopsy that is two weeks away? Any info is appreciated.   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!
