Cantillon Gueuze Gluten Test

A classic gueuze from Cantillon lambic brewery in Brussels made from a blend of 1,2&3 year old lambic. They use a high proportion of wheat in the grist so this was always likely to have a high gluten content. The reason I tested is due to the different varieties of wild yeast and bacteria which ferment the beer, the theory being that they produce protein enzymes which might break down the gluten.

Producer: Brasserie Cantillon
Originating country: Belgium

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: A red line appears on the right of the test stick ( T ). The red line indicates the presence of gluten equal to or above 5 ppm. 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.
