Regular Budweiser-anyone Drink It?
0

17 posts in this topic

After searching for gluten-free beers (redbridge and new grist did not appeal to my palate) I have noticed there is no set consensus on whether or not regular Budweiser contains gluten.

My question is does anyone here drink it or have experiences with drinking it after being gluten free? I am really interested in if anyone has experienced a positive or negative biopsy after regularly consuming Budweiser.

Edit:

This article explains the confusion on whether or not rice based beer that contains barley is gluten-free.

This is from Wikipedia

Budweiser is brewed using rice, barley malt, water, hops and yeast.

Regular Budweiser is not gluten-free.

The only people that drink it are the ones who want to get sick, are misinformed or do not understand the fermentation process of beer.

Don't drink it...

Yes, but vodka is usually made from grain yet is gluten free since it is distilled; they are saying the brewing process breaks down the barley and gluten in to peptides which may or may not be gluten free.

This is from http://www.celiac.com/st_prod.html?p_prodid=413

"It is not proved beyond any doubt that the peptides in beer are actually toxic to celiac patients, but it is quite possible that the peptides remaining in any barley-based or wheat-based beer, Sapporo included, are harmful to celiac patients. "

Yup, sure wouldn't drink it! Even if you don't have noticable symptoms after drinking it you could still be doing villi damage! I wouldn't chance my health on a beer!

Vodka is made with wheat or barley gluten? I thought vodka was either rice based or potato based.

Some are made from potatoes; not sure about rice but I am sure there are. Alot are made from wheat, Absolute says so right on the bottle. I believe Grey Goose is wheat too.

Yes, some vodka's are ok! just check the bottle...if you go to a bar, as long as they are not packed most bartenders will let you check the bottle.

Prior to going gluten free...i drank Bud Light and I had symptoms the whole next day!!! Not fun!

The issue is not just GI symptoms. If you are determined to drink this stuff you may want to try an experiment. Note please I am not reccommending that any confirmed celiac do this Get yourself a six pack of gluten-free beer and a six pack of Bud. One night drink the Bud and note how many drinks it takes to put you out of it, once you recover from your 'hangover' do the same thing with the gluten-free beer. Chances are you will find that you get much 'drunker' much faster and have a worse hangover with the Bud. What you will be seeing is the neurological effects and the toxicity that this has on your body. While your GI systems may not yell at you I can guarentee that your brain, pancreas, your liver, your gall bladder and other systems are going to be telling you not to do it again.

It is not safe to drink.

Why would companies make gluten free beers if 'normal' beers were safe ;)

I have one word for regular Bud or any other regular beer...POISON.

Re: vodka... vodka's made from many different sources. Potatoes, corn, wheat. I know that the distilling process is supposed to get rid of the gluten, but to be on the safe side I'm sticking with either potato or corn based vodkas from now on. Usually the vodka labels will say what it's made from. As for flavored vodkas, that's another story. Just like anything else, you either have to check the label or contact the manufacturer to find out if the flavoring is gluten-free.

My former life. Not realizing that normal people didn't get drunk/out of their mind off three beers nor did normal poeple get 48 hour hangovers/severe gi sympotoms from three beers. Aaah, then came life after going gluten-free, where a couple/few gluten-free beers or other gluten-free drinks don't cause severe debilitating hangovers. LOL

Yea me too. Then I couldn't figure out why I would get drunk and a hangover from nonalcoholic beer. Duhhh.

    • Lanolin to my knowledge is used in skin based applications only, if your needing D3 the best way is to get a sublingual in a dropper you can use there are many available. I personally use Liquid Health and just add it to a drink once or twice a week. https://www.luckyvitamin.com/p-95099-liquid-health-vitamin-d3-drops-1000-iu-2-03-oz BTW while your looking Liquid Health also makes a Stress & Energy Supplement, and a Neurological one I swear by. They have many other liquid based formulas if you wish to avoid pills (I already take a bunch anyway for other health issues)
    • Which D3 supplements aren't made from lanolin?   I had skin inflammation in the past from topical lanolin. I'm not sure if processed ingested lanolin in D3 should concern me, but thought I'd consider a  non lanolin version.
    • Is your concern the social aspects of eating on the job, or not always feeling well enough to get out the door? I'm in health care, and just happened to be in home care when I was diagnosed.  It actually works well, as I make my own hours, and can reschedule visits as need be. I would think you could complete your MBA easily, maybe part time if necessary.  It's not clear what your career path might be ....counseling?   Industrial psych? Research? Once you are established (and you can do that part time if need be, to start), you will have more options for flexed or reduced hours.  If the social aspects of eating are an issue, you can always excuse yourself at meals, drive to a pleasant location, and eat in your car. Or go for a walk and find a place to eat. For work luncheons,  I just have a beverage or pick up a piece of fruit, so I give the appearance of participating. 
    • Can you tolerate nut milks? I find macadamia milk the gentlest on my stomach. The only brand I've seen here in the US is Milkadamia, and it comes sweetened or not, and fortified with some vitamins. I think this brand is from Australia. Or you could make your own. As for time, it can take awhile, and that seems to be more the norm. A recent new dairy intolerance that peaked May 3 has made me sicker than celiac ever did. Almost 3 months later and I am just starting to get better and my fatigue is improving. I had the usual ups and downs, inadvertent exposures, and trial and error.  I had only mild symptoms (comparitively speaking) at my celiac diagnosis 4 years ago, yet it took 6 months to a year for them to fully resolve after going gluten-free. It's hard to be patient when your GI tract is off, as it makes you feel ill all over.  Just keep doing the right things, introduce new foods one at a time. I would also suggest more protein for weight issues ... can you tolerate tuna? Tuna and some version of mayo? Salmon, vitamin D supplements, and bone broth seemed to have helped me recently with gut healing. Wishing you well...  
    • Thank you for your response! Again I am pretty sure my doctor did all these checks however I will definitely check to make sure and take the necessary actions if not. It just feels like a never ending run of doctor appointments and blood tests at the moment and the whole thing really did come as a surprise to me. I think I have really tried to eat healthy as I believe its so important especially being diagnosed with this disease. I feel as though its not just about eliminating gluten but also having a really healthy and balanced lifestyle. Also, I find that at the moment it is not just gluten that upsets my stomach, fruit for some reason also does. Unfortunately, people do not realize this and dismiss it which can also be annoying on top of the diagnosis. I will definitely be avoiding processed foods and have been for the last few months. Thank you for your response and I will listen to my body as you have said, it is without doubt very important.
