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.

    • I've given up on all those processed gluten free foods out there and have stuck to eating a whole foods diet. I have noticed such a huge, massive, difference in my energy, mood, sleep, and well being. Needless to say I've been doing a lot of cooking but have been leaving sugar out because I don't know the safe brands. I tried using Stevia in the raw but keep getting horrible headaches when I use it. I saw that the first ingredient is Dextrose so it's not "raw". Anyway, what are the safe brands out there as far as white and brown sugars go? I made saurkraut and pork chops last night and would've loved potato salad. Also while I'm on here, what about Mayo? What's safe? I saw Sir Kennsington was gluten-free Certified.
    • My Celiac disease presented as yours did: anemia, unexplained weight loss, aches and pains (due to vitamin and mineral deficiencies from malabsorption), the abdominal burning (whether I ate or not), decreased appetite, itching, the works. Plus I had a mood like a gorgon, which wasn't helped by my friends telling me "how slender!" I looked. My bones were basically all that was holding me up. I've had the blood panel too, which has proven very informative. I had a follow-up celiac panel after I'd been on the diet for over a year and it showed the diet was working. I also went through an anger phase because my (now former) doc (who is also my dad's doc and knows he has celiac AND knows we're related...) just wrote me a prescription for antidepressants, whereas I might have been spared years of feeling crappy (my late 30s!) if he'd just ordered a CBC and found the anemia. I'm a woman and I feel like sometimes whatever you say to a doc (even female docs!), all they hear is "psych symptoms". It really made me mad. But I've always pooped like a champ so I didn't exactly have typical symptoms either. Then I thought about how long it took my poor dad to get diagnosed (decades), which was before there was all this awareness, and I feel grateful for the fact that it took comparatively far less time for me to get my diagnosis and start feeling better. Don't worry about not finding stuff you like to eat: since gluten-free has become "the new thing" there are so many choices and the price has come down considerably since my dad got diagnosed (over 12 years ago). If your doc confirms celiac, then you'll be back on the (albeit gluten-free!) mac and cheese in no time, this time actually absorbing some of the mac and cheesy goodness! Feel better and take care.
    • If you are worried about your glycemic levels, then you should test with a glucose meter.  I have diabetes (insulin resistance/TD2) and rice and potatoes spike me like crazy!  I might as well consume ice cream!  But if you do not have diabetes, no worries!  
    • Thanks to both of you for your replies. I wasn't so much concerned about the arsenic (although that is an additional consideration) as I was about the glycemic level. I don't bake enough to make blending my own flour blends worthwhile, so I will definitely check out the links you provided, Ennis_TX. So far I'm tolerating oats and my gastro doc says I can keep eating them as long as they're certified GT. I just looked at some crackers I have for hummus and noticed their main ingredient is rice. I should probably just eat the hummus with veggies!
    • I agree with Ennis.  It sounds like she is getting access to gluten way too often to expect healing.   I had some pretty severe patches of intestinal damage when I was diagnosed.  Anemia was my symptom and I had no gut issues then.  So, just because she injests gluten and does not have some major symptoms right away, does not mean she is not building up antibodies.  Have those antibodies been re-tested to see if they are in the normal ranges now?  Missing patches of damage in the small intestine is possible.  Heck, the small intestine is the size of a tennis court (goggle it).  So easy to miss.  Also, your GI should have taken more than four samples?  How many were taken? (Forgive me, if I have forgotten.) Cross contamination in your house is real, especially if you have kids in the house.  Member Jebby, a preemie doctor who has celiac disease, was not getting well.  Turns out her four small and adorable children were glutening her.  She made her house gluten free.  Just something to consider.   You mentioned she had access to gluten at a party.  So, does that mean she caves in and eats it?  She needs to become a stakeholder in this diet.
