Corona Light Beer

Ok... so I just drank a Corona light because I have another celiac friend who also drinks it... and now that Im researching I cant find out if its actually brewed with barley or just corn as some people have told me. I usually get a tension headache when I drink non gluten-free beer, and I have a touch of tension building now, not as bad as usual though. Someone please tell me its gluten-free!

We shall see... hopefully it doesnt get me too bad... Ive gotten myself once this week already!

It is NOT gluten-free. Hope your reaction isn't too bad!

The only beers that I know of that are safe for celiacs are Red Bridge, Bard's tale and La Messiere (french- I think our Canadian friends can get it).

I've never heard of beer brewed from corn- vodka yes (Smirnoff is corn-based) but not beer. Bard's Tale is a sorghum lager and very tasty!

The OP, haleym, has gluten intolerance, not Celiac.

I do know people diagnosed with Celiac that drink light beer, not gluten free, with no reaction. I wouldn't do it, myself.

"Greens" beers are really good but pricey..Glutino pretzels and other treats by that brand are really good too.. i work in the natural food world so if you need help feel free to shout out!

I haven't been diagnosed with Celiac or gluten intolerant but have been gluten free for 16 months. I can usually tell if I've been glutenized pretty quickly. I had no reaction after a couple of Coronas in the USA. Everything I've found says Corona is made with barley.

Barley is not safe for celiacs, as it is a source of gluten. You might not be having an external reaction but I assure you that you're causing damage internally. Corona is NOT gluten free.

New Grist beer is another gluten free one. No "regular" beers are safe; they need to be labelled "gluten free" and made from sorghum, or sorghum and rice. Learned that the hard way after a fellow celiac told me Heineken was safe. It isn't.

Dear Haleym,

Did you find the ppm of gluten for corona light??

Corona extra is listed as less than 10ppm.

    • So I have one pesky symptom that in the last few years has cropped up and never gone away. Lack of motivation to do some very basic things. So basic it's embarrassing to talk about. I barely manage to do a lot of adult tasks these days. It's a real stretch. It's like something is blocking me. Anyways, so I'm talking to my psych and she suggests adderal for it as we've tried lots of different avenues for this issue and none have helped. My bipolar is totally under control, for an entire year so far. My anxiety is ok with a script. It'll be even better once I get one major thing that I won't get into here taken care of. But I'm not the super motivated, extremely hard working person I used to be. It really changed basically when I got sick about 9 years ago. So, does anyone else take adderal? I've got the pills next to me but worried to take them. Not sure why. Any help, advice, reassurance is welcome.
    • Yeah I need someone to attend with me, I had someone else but they canceled on me. The hotel room is booked from the 16th-20th of August. I can pick up from the airport, greyhound, or train station and drop off if need be, room is booked from the 16th technically a day before the convention so you have time for sightseeing. Room is a double queen and you get your own bed. It is a anime convention with many Japanese guest this year, I will provide snacks, meals, etc with the room fee and I will accept paypal, credit card, or cash. Meals will be made decided on after talking with whoever is rooming with a diet build around what you can eat. The room will be gluten, corn, dairy, and peanut free. I do bring a chef kit with me including griddle, steamer, rice cooker, etc.
    • No anti-sm(lupus)? Yes, anti dsDNA is for SLE(lupus). No ENA panel,anti-RNP, anti-SS-A, anti-SS-B, anti histone, scl-70, etc? I'd ask for a referral, if you feel that there is something going on. I think that would be a logical step because of the positive ANA and lack of investigation. 1:640 is definitely positive. 
    • My MCH is always high too. Have some other oddities but doc always say labs are great as well. I dont think they ever really bother with the MCH. I'm also in testing and showed negative on the same ones you did. My IGA is fine though. As far as the other tests, maybe your girls GI can order or you could try your primary. 
    • Hi there!   I follow a low histamine diet that Cycling Lady brought to my attention a long time ago.  Citrus fruits and their juices are histamine releasing foods.  High histamine levels can cause hives just like in an allergic reaction.  Here's a helpful site:   https://www.histamineintolerance.org.uk/about/the-food-diary/the-food-list/ I don't drink orange juice because because of the hives and stomach upset I get from it, and also because I'm type two diabetic and my system can't handle all the sugars in it.  High glucose contributes to inflammation. I also avoid things with added flavors and scents because they often contain sulfur components like sulfites or sulfates.  Corn products are often processed with sulfuric acid.  Some Celiacs, like me, develop a sulfite sensitivity.  Here's a helpful site:  http://www.thepatientceliac.com/tag/celiac-disease-and-sulfite-intolerance/ Garlic and onions are high in sulfites.  People who can't tolerate foods high in sulfites are often deficient in a trace mineral, molybdenum.  Molybdenum is also involved in blood production.  Here's another site:  http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=nutrient&dbid=128 So, there's not always a simple answer.  I'm leary of processed foods because you don't really know how they're processed and what really goes into them.  I'd rather stick to fresh foods.  Hope this helps.
