Whoa! I guess I read too much into the name Omission!

I'm sure my mistake is common & I don't want to wantonly assign nefarious motives. (Only said I didn't want to, not that I wouldn't wonder)

Omission? They didn't omit any more gluteney beer ingredients than budweiser does. It's another barley malt beer claiming to be deglutened by process.

Doesn't the main gluten ppm test do poorly w/ hordein, the barley gluten analog to gliaden? Or maybe there's a newer test.

I was psyched that there was another oregon gluten-free beer, but w/ forum members comments on the spanish "deglutened" barley malt beer, I think I'll wait.

I agree with Tom, I think,.  I am a little cautious about it.  But it's been a while now.  So, has anyone tried the Omission beer?  Does anyone think it is ok or anyone have any issues with it?   I don't remember seeing it anywhere in my area.  I am not sure I'd try it if I found it tho.

I don't drink beer, but I have super, super annoyed by waitstaff (who are trying to be helpful)  in restaurants offering me one of these fake "gluten free" beers, which are still made from gluten bearing ingredients, because they are ASSUMING that anyone with a gluten free diet requirement, who just asked for the gluten free menu and repeated that they need the entire order to be gluten free, can then just STILL have something made from gluten, aka malted barley, as long as it doesn't have too much of it, and has been processed.  It is the beer equivalent of picking the croutons off the salads...... :angry:  and it's not helpful to the overall quest to get safe food when eating out.  It is just something ELSE I have to memorize to avoid.

    • I havent used it, not much of a baker tbh, but this one looks good:
    • As you say, there's no test, it's diagnosed by exclusion, so there's no metrics to check to assess compliance other than anecdotal response to symptoms. Conversely, I've not seen anything that says that NCGI can resolved or be cured either.  This paper gives a good summation.  Basically, there's not much research period! That is changing though, I think there's research underway which could help give answers.
    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
