Landshark Lager?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I can drink Corona all right, and I was wondering if I might be able to drink Landshark too?

Don't these beer have barley malt in them like most beers? They might not be "wheat" beers. Where did you find out that these are gluten free?

Corona has a facebook page with questions and answers. This is what they list the ingredients are:

-Corona Extra is made with all natural ingredients, water, barley, hops and yeast.

Barley or malt listed for beer contain gluten.

Looking at some previous posts, I noticed you mentioned Corona and were reminded that it is not gluten free. You also ignored people who mentioned it so I suppose this will be ignored too. You have been on these forums long enough to know that you are damaging yourself even if you don't have an immediate reaction.

I am not a celiac, I just have a gluten allergy. My doctor told me that if I could tolerate it I could drink it. Remember, it IS possible to just have an allergy and not be full blown celiac!

Funny thing is, I got that Redbridge gluten free beer and it tastes like Bud Wheat beer! It's dark and delicious!

OOOH Redbridge! Yes I would MUCH rather drink a good gluten-free beer but I really don't like Bards ( I tried. I failed). I am going to order some Redbridge today, thanks for the tip!!

I am in the same boat as you, not diagnosed as celiac, but with a very pronounced gluten intolerance.

Notice that I wrote gluten and not wheat. Thankfully I hate beer and ales.

Wheat does horrible things to me.

Barley and rye give me massive exhaustion and give me those heavy limbs and neuropathic chills.

I don't have any damage to my intestines but I wonder, even without that, if the barley isn't hurting you somehow in which you are not aware yet??

That is just my two sous K8ling!

Just don't do any harm to yourself,

Some beers that aren't wheat based have an almost immeasurable amount of gluten because the barley malt has so little. I still don't drink them, but i can see how somebody with an allergy might be fine. Some people with a wheat allergy are able to eat spelt.

"Gluten allergy" is a misnomer for gluten intolerance, and no amount of gluten is safe for someone with a gluten intolerance.

With your family history of Celiac's and bowel cancers, I would do all that I could to avoid any grain of wheat, rye, or barley in my diet to avoid taking the path that others in the family took.

You are right: a wheat allergy is different from Celiac's.

The doctor was wrong telling you that if you can tolerate it, you can eat it. That's horrible advice and I would never go to him again if it was my choice.

Funny thing about allergies: often time, the more you expose yourself to the allergen, the more of a reaction you will have to it.

Good luck with your future diet.

Sake and hard ciders are pretty widely available and taste great.

If it is an allergy instead of celiac the "only" harms to the body are the actual symptoms experienced. With that in mind, I say enjoy a beer for all of us who can't :)

I've read a lot of posts from you saying that you're always feeling sick and you're husband doesn't respect your need for a clean kitchen and that you've constantly struggled with getting glutened. If I were you, which I recognize that I'm not, I'd cut out all of that stuff, including beer, just so I could feel better again. I understand that you just have an "allergy" but just because you don't notice a reaction, doesn't mean there isn't one.

There are gluten intolerances and there are wheat allergies and much rarer tested for gluten allergy, a "gluten allergy" is a normally term used by someone who doesn't know what the word allergy means.

The symptoms you've mentioned are not allergy symptoms they are intolerance symptoms. Corona is most likely not safe for you to consume. What test was done specifically to determine your gluten allergy?

I'm guessing Landshark Lager has gluten in it since lagers usully contain water, hops, malt (from barley), and yeast. I think the only gluten-free product produced by Anheuser-Busch, which makes Landshark, is Redbridge.

In any case, it you're interested in gluten-free beers, here's a list of products by country: http://206.126.230.197/eatingout/gfbeer.html. I'm not sure how widely available all of the products are, but it may be a starting point.

I also highly suggest Woodchuck Ciders (http://www.woodchuck.com/). They defintely have a different taste than beers, but they are gluten-free and delicious. Hope this helps.

What WheatChef said is correct. You describe symptoms of intolerance, not allergy. You find some people on here who started with intolerance and were eventually diagnosed with celiac.

Beer is something I miss for sure, but I think you are playing with fire if you keep drinking it.

I tried Redbridge this weekend (thanks to my wonderful hubby for hunting it down) and it was yummy. Rich and hoppy. It's even better ice cold. For gluten-free beer, it's winner!

Simply out of principle, you shouldn't drink Landshark because it is lousy beer. Friends don't let friends drink Landshark.

Those posts were mostly early on, and he has finally come around. He's gotten MUCH better and now our kitchen is totally free from stuff that makes me sick, aside from the beer and an emergency can of raviolis for the toddler. It took me getting VERY sick and him not being able to deny that it was something that we all ate. But now he understands a LOT better and he is much more cognizant. You do raise a good point though, just because there isn't a reaction, it doesn't mean there isn't one that I am not aware of. We just ordered some Redbridge to try so hopefully that quells my love of beer.

Greens is a gluten-free Belgian beer. A bit pricey but good stuff if you like the heavy beers. I think Whole Foods carries Greens. It is sold by the bottle, not in a 6 pack.

There is also a gluten-free beer called Bard's Tale, but I haven't tried that or seen it sold anywhere.

I drink the redbridge, by buweiser. It is good but full of calories. Anything else I should try?

All gluten-free beers have the calories.
