Well, the amount of gluten is a lot less than if you had eaten some regular bread or a slice of ordinary pizza. If you only swallowed a little, things may not be too bad. When I was adapting to celiac, after being pretty much gluten-free for three months, I drank a beer. What harm can one do? I spent the next couple of days making regular and urgent runs to the throne room. Now, only three months into the diet, I am sure the original damage was still healing anyway. I did not touch another beer until last fall, when I was finally able to obtain some gluten-free beer (la Messagere) at my local government store.
We all make mistakes, or forget to check ingredients. I hope that the small amount of gluten you got does not cause too much trouble for you. As beers go, I understand that Becks is lower in gluten than most.
Oh my...I've had nightmares about doing stuff like that! When I first saw the post I figured you had drank the whole thing. Since you only drank a little you probably wont have as sever a reaction. If you are a beer lover, you might try Bard's Tale beer. They get a little over-zelous with the carbonation sometimes, but it's a lot better for you than Becks!! Even my husband, who is not gluten-free and loves beer thinks it tastes pretty darn good! He said he'd drink it if it wasn't $15 for a 6-pack!
Also my worst nightmare! I actually had a dream that I ate a bowl of fruit loops last night and had a mid-dream panic attack!
Hopefully cgilsing is right and it won't be so bad since you spit most of it out
I'm glad that I don't like beer, and that a good margarita is gluten free
I am so glad to learn that I am not the only one that has nightmares about this!
