Foster’s is probably the most famous Australian beer and sold worldwide. In Australia the people may prefer other beers but it is quite famous in English pubs and during my recent trip to Detroit I could find it there in mals and stores as well. Fostes brews worldwide under licence so the beer I test here is the US version of Fosters and so gluten test results of Fosters can vary depending on the brewing location.
Beer: Foster’s Lager
Producer: Foster’s Group
Originating country: Australia
Brewing location: USA
Bottle size: 0.75 l = approx. 25 Oz.
Alcohol by volume: 5.0%

I tested with a threshold of 5 ppm. The limit of detection depends on the number of drops taken from the extraction solution, please find some more information here.
Test result: There is no indication of the presence of gluten above 5 ppm. According to the instructions there should appear a clearly visible red test line on the right of the test area ( T ) to indicate the presence of gluten. The blue line on the left test area ( C ) is a control line and indicates that the extract/sample is suitable, the test has been performed correctly and all reagents are active. Please don’t take any of my test results as a medical advice – see my facts page.
