Vale Lager Gluten Test

Test provided by Adam from Adelaide/Australia

Another beer from my home state of South Australia.  The “Vale” is in reference to McLaren Vale, our second most famous wine producing area after the Barossa Valley, of course.  Mind you the beer is made in Willunga which I think isn’t technically McLaren Vale.  Anyway that’s not important.  What is important is that it was another pass, under 20ppm.  And it was quite a nice beer too.

Beer: Vale Lager
Producer: Vale Brewing
Originating country: Australia
Brewing location: Australia
Bottle size: 330 ml = approx. 12 Oz.
Alcohol by volume: 4.5%
Ingredients: not stated on label
Miscellaneous: Thanks for test, Adam!

Adam 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.

Test result: There is no indication of the presence of gluten above 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. Even though this test is negative please note it is not a medical advice – see my facts page.

Which Spanish beer do you want me to test next?

I tested a number of Spanish beers already – Ambar Especial just last year, the Canarian Dorada and the gluten free labelled Estrella Daura Damm which I tested positive, though. This time I give the regular Estrella Damm a chance, beside the famous San Miguel from Madrid and another beer from Barcelona with increasing sales called Moritz and named after the founder Louis Moritz Trautmann.

Kingfisher Gluten Test

I am currently in India and just tested the most famous Indian beer Kingfisher Premium Lager. It contains rice beside barley so I assumed already that it will be low in gluten. But it contains some other ingredients like sugar and syrup which is not really in accordance with German Beer Law. But it’s India so it’s OK like the beer itself. An everyday beer with sweet taste best enjoyed very cold.

Beer: Kingfisher Premium Lager
Producer: United Breweries Group
Originating country: India
Brewing location: India
Bottle size: 330 ml = approx. 12 Oz.
Alcohol by volume: 5.0%
Ingredients: water, malted barley, sugar, rice/maize/millet/corn syrup, ethyl alcohol (generated in the process), hops and yeast

Ambar Especial Gluten Test

Spain is very progressive in regards to gluten free foods and beverages. In almost all restaurants, shops and hotels gluten free products are available. Also Biomedal as the manufacturer of the GlutenTox Home kit is Spanish and Estrella Daura Damm from Barcelona was a pioneer in the gluten free beer business – event though my test showed a controversy result.

Ambar is my latest discovery from Spain. It is labelled gluten free (sin gluten means without gluten) and says on the back label: “La malta de cebada que contiene esta cerveza ha sido tratada para garantizar un consumo apto para celiacos” which means something like ‘The barley used in this beer has been treated to ensure safe consumption by Coelics’. The beer itself is rather averge, a typcial Spanish beer, sweet, fizzy carbonation and should be consumed only cold. And here is the gluten test result for Ambar:

Beer: Ambar Especial
Producer: La Zaragozana
Originating country: Spain
Brewing location: Spain
Bottle size: 330 ml = approx. 12 Oz.
Alcohol by volume: 5.2%
Ingredients: – not stated on label

Foster’s Gluten Test

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.

Producer: Foster’s Group
Originating country: Australia
Brewing location: USA
Bottle size: 0.75 l = approx. 25 Oz.
Alcohol by volume: 5.0%
