Quilmes Gluten Test

During my recent trip to Spain I had the chance to purchase Quilmes, the most famous beer from Argentina. Quilmes is a decent beer, fresh with good aftertaste. And here is the result of the gluten test.

Beer: Quilmes
Producer: Cerveceria y malteria Quilmes
Originating country: Argentina
Brewing location: Argentina
Bottle size: 340 ml = approx. 12 Oz.
Alcohol by volume: 4.9%
Ingredients: water, barley malt, corn, hops, E224
Miscellaneous: 

Quilmes Gluten Test Quilmes Gluten Test

Test Kit: GlutenTox Home Kit

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. Again please don’t take any of my test results as a medical advice – please see my facts page.

    Has anyone tried Quilmes Clasica?

    I have no reaction to the above beer, but just noticed a change in packaging..

    Not sure if it’s just a rebrand or a new beer altogether.

    Same alcohol content.

    • Hi Sam, thanks for letting the people know that you had no reaction. It’s always useful to get the personal experience from people who actually drink the beer. Maybe it’s just a redesign if everything else (abv, ingredients) remain the same. But here in Germany it’s difficult to get this beer so I cannot compare.
      Cheers Steffen
