I know this is a test many visitors waited long for. Stella Artois is probably the most famous Belgian beer and available almost worldwide. Almost – in Germany for example Stella is almost not to get. Belgium is close to Germany but actually there is no reason to import Belgian beers as there are hundreds of breweries in Germany and beer quality is generally high.
When I used to live in the UK Stella was always my favourite beer in the pubs. I don’t know how often I said “Two pints of Stella’s please” for me and my mate. I bought this bottle of Stella during my recent trip to Greece and here is the gluten test result.
Beer: Stella Artois
Producer: Anheuser-Busch InBev
Originating country: Belgium
Brewing location: Belgium
Bottle size: 0.33 l
Alcohol by volume: 5.0%
Ingredients: brewing water, malted barley
Miscellaneous: bought in Greece
Test Kit: Imutest Gluten-in-Food Kit
Test result: The test result is negative. According to the instructions there should appear a clearly visible pink test spot on the left of the test area ( T ) to indicate the presence of gluten. The pink spot on the right test area ( C ) is a control spot and indicates that the extract/sample is suitable, the test has been performed correctly and all reagents are active. Even though the detection limit in this kit is very low (1-2 ppm) and the test is negative please note this is not a medical advice – please see also my facts page.
