Coopers Lager Gluten Test

Test done by Adam:

…this time Coopers Lager.  Obviously another Coopers from my home town/city of Adelaide.

I have been waiting some time now for contact from Coopers about their gluten content of all of their beers, but I guess I couldn’t wait any longer.  So I tested it myself.

It’s an okay beer, I just need to have it in the right style of glass to really judge its true flavour and character.  I often try beers in different glass styles to find the best one.

Beer: Coopers Lager
Producer: Coopers Brewery
Originating country: Australia
Brewing location: Australia
Bottle size: 375 ml = approx. 12 Oz.
Alcohol by volume: 4.8%
Ingredients: not stated on label
Miscellaneous: Thanks for test, Adam!

Test Kit: GlutenTox Home Kit

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.

    Good work Adam

    Thx Mick

    Just letting any Aussies out there wanting to drink this beer. The labeling has been changed by Coopers and now is predominately white, including on the cartons and cardboard six packs.
    It’s the same beer.

    Thanks for the Cooper test Adam. Pre Coeliac days (2010) I loved Coopers Sparkling Ale, Stout and Pale Ale. Best beers in OZ !! Tempted to try the Lager after your test.

    Cheers, Lester.
