Asahi = Not Gluten Free

I went to a local Sushi restaurant that may be the best Sushi in all of North America.  Anyway,  three servers, a manager, and a bartender assured me that Asahi Super Dry was in fact gluten free and safe for celiacs.  This morning I woke up with terrible brain fog! I went to the ASAHI website and in their description they tout the quality of their barley!

 

"The malted barley we use for SUPER DRY is selected strictly in compliance with more than a hundred criteria we have set for this ingredient..."

I'm new to Celiac, I even used my iphone to search the beer.  I was getting different answers online so I trusted the waitstaff, manager, and bartender.  One waitstaff even told me she had Celiac a "would know."  

 

I hope this forum gets to the top of Google search for "Asahi Gluten Free," so others don't make the same mistake.

 

I know many Celiacs consider this a safe beer...   nevertheless, IT IS NOT GLUTEN FREE!!!!!!!!

If it makes you feel any better, I had a waitress in a sports themed bar/restaurant try to give me another brand of beer that I knew darned well was not gluten free  to go with my gluten free pizza, saying "and oh, we have brand xxx, gluten free beer."  This particular beer brand isn't even marketed as gluten free.  I said, that's not a gluten free beer, and she says, oh yes it is, it's processed that way.   :blink::ph34r:  :angry:  <_<   I really wonder if they don't have their heads up their bums sometimes.  Fortunately I don't drink beer anyway.  I ordered plain water in a bottle just to get the point across.   I've done good with their actual meal there repeatedly, so I don't want to slam the entire establishment, but don't automatically trust waitstaff in busy chain restaurants selling name brand profit makers.

 

Last time I was in a bar they let me read all the labels on the diet sodas, and we gave them a nice tip.  I found out that one brand of diet root beer has starch in it.   :wacko:  Now, it is said that starch in North America is typically made from corn, but who knows.  Was this highly processed barley starch ?  I got a different flavor.   Cue theme music from "Jaws."  "dunt dunt duh dunt... "  it lurks, everywhere  :P .

Just a note here, I've never found an Asian rice-based beer that is gluten-free. Doesnt mean they arent out there, but I've never found one in the US.

The only beers I've found that are gluten-free are marketed as "gluten-free"...and some of those aren't if they contain barley. I think they call those "low gluten" now??

Apple/pear cider is another story. Lots of brands out there are naturally gluten-free.

If Sapporo was gluten-free I'd be so dang happy.

And I had a waitress tell me this, regarding a ketchup I was unfamiliar with: "Our bartender is diabetic and he eats gluten-free and he eats it."

Well, yippidy doo dah! Is he Celiac???? I guess I should thank the bartender - he's probably the reason gluten-free was offered at all. I think it was ok, first time I ever had a gluten-free burger with a bun. I was a little worried....almost asked to see the package of gluten-free buns.

    • I bought Spicely Organics Chili powder from Whole Foods in Bellevue, WA.  I got very sick after eating it, so I tested it with three separate gluten tests.  They all came up positive for >10ppm, which is what their "certification" says they test below.   I just wanted to warn everyone away from them.  They clearly have quality control problems and are not safe for celiacs.
    • It's no secret that nearly all traditionally brewed beers contain barley. The flavor and body barley imparts on traditional beers is partly responsible for their rich, full taste. Finding alternatives to barley that are suitable for brewing gluten-free beer has been a challenge. One solution has been to brew beers with traditional barley ingredients, and then use a combination of enzyme action and filtration to render a final product that test below 20ppm gluten required for gluten-free products.

    • First have you been tested for celiac disease? Any doctor can do the blood test but you have to be eating gluten on a daily basis for the test to work, nut much just a half slice of bread a day. You should get this tested, the high constipation, coughing stuff up was very common for me before diagnosis. The coughing stuff up for me was from a allergy that developed I did not know of, the mucus was draining down my throat and choking me at times, and was constantly running a fever and night sweats. I was constipated for 4-10 days average back then and drinking plenty of liquids did not help in the least. Your gut rumbling could be many things, celiac is one, SIBO is another especially with the bad breath. in your case it could be related to constipation causing rotting, fermenting, and bacterial overgrowth of the waste in your system. Now to deal with the immediate symptoms, your constipation is also a sign of magnesium deficiency, I imagine you might have noticed some other symptoms from these. Now normally I would suggest either the Natural Vitality Calm or Doctors Best which is easier on the stomach. In your case I straight up suggest the Natural Vitality Calm it is a Magnesium Citrate and works a bit like a laxative. Start with 1/4 tsp twice a day in a beverage, I like the orange or the cherry in a hot green tea or you can try it in a juice. Up the dose slowly over a periods of a week to the full dose or perhaps a little more til you get a bit looser stool.     You mentioned the mucus in the stool 2 things cause this normally. Undigested fats, and inflammation/irritation causing the body to produce the mucus to help defend itself and purge the irritants. A doctor can probably tell you more but I might suggest a digestive enzyme in the mean time. I like to use a super papaya enzyme before and after a meal, find them on amazon. Jarrow also makes full enzyme complex that can help. Other thoughts if your on dairy, stop, with the constipation, and other issues this is a equation for trouble and you can reintroduce it in a few months when you clear up and see if it bothers you then. The bad breath can be a sign of lactose intolerance/digestive issues with dairy also. If it comes you you have celiac then you would have your explanation here as the villi which produce the enzymes to break down lactose are damaged/destroyed first causing most to develop a temporary lactose intolerance which for some goes away after a few months of healing. B-vitamin folic acid, and niacin will be a huge help also with some things. but will we get into that a bit later feel free to look up Liquid Health Stress & Energy if you thing it might be relevant at this point it is what I use 3 times a day with another blend they have.
    • Some of your symptoms sound like my ulcers.  I take carafate before every meal now and they are much better.  I have 3 ulcers possibly caused by taking iron supplements.  They are worse when I eat spicy food and dairy. I might be wrong but for your sake I hope it's just ulcers.  They were found by endoscopy.
    • The yellow is probably fat you are not absorbing.  The pain could be from your intestines being inflamed.  Go see the gastroenterologist.  The ER did not help me with any of those symptoms.  Good thing it's clear so you know it's not your appendix or any other vital organ.  It takes time but probiotics, bone broth and  vitamin D and b 12 help. My pain was mainly my muscles giving out from the malabsorption.
