Panama Balboa Soberana Gluten Test

Here come three test results from Panama beers in one post. Joe was so kind to provide me with the results from his recent Panama trip.

Panama Lager. Slight red line, barely visible at 20ppm.

Cerveza Soberana, similar result at 20ppm. Ever so slight red line.

Balboa Premium Classic Lager. Absolutely no sign of redline whatsoever at 20ppm. Will test this one again at 5ppm on next trip.

Joe tested with a threshold of 20 ppm. The limit of detection depends on the number of drops taken from the extraction solution, please find some more information here.

Panama Gluten Test Soberana Gluten Test Balboa Gluten Test

Test result: There are three different test results. Panama is clearly positive, Soberano is positive but the test line is weaker than in the Panama test. Balboa is negative on 20 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. As always please don’t take any of the test results as a medical advice – see my facts page.

Grolsch Gluten Test

Back in 2015 I started a poll about Dutch beer you want me to test and the winner was Heineken. On 2nd place was Grolsch – another famous Dutch beer and in my eyes the better tasting one. Adam was so kind to test Grolsch now. And here is the result.
