Coors Light Gluten Test

Coors beer was totally unknown to me until I have seen statistics about America’s best selling beers. In the recent poll Coors Light could even beat Miller Lite which I consider more famous. Coors beer is named after its German inventor Adolph Coors but tastes like a typical American light beer rather than a German beer. It was OK to drink but not something special, very average watery beer. And here is the Gluten test result:

Beer: Coors Light
Producer: Coors Brewing Company
Originating country: USA
Brewing location: USA
Bottle size: 16 oz (approx. 470 ml)
Alcohol by volume: 4.2%
Ingredients: water, barley malt, hops, yeast
Miscellaneous: Ingredients listed in German as product sold in Germany

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: The test is negative. In this test there is no indication that Coors Light has more than 5 ppm gluten. However, it is not a medical advice – please see my facts page.

    I drink Michelob ultra and Heineken light. Are they low in gluten? Use to drink Miller Light before celiac. Would love to drink again! Is it high or low in gluten! Thanks Mary

      Hi Mary, so far I haven’t tested them. I plan to test Miller Lite soon as I received many enquiries over the contact form and via email already. Michelob Ultra is also on my list (but later this year), not so sure about Heineken Light. Cheers Steffen

        Hi Steffen,
        Have you been able to test scrimshaw? It’s popular Pilsner in the us.

        also, what are your general thoughts when it comes to IPA’s and gluten levels.

        Thanks for the awesome content!

    I am Celiac and find Modelo especial is a great beer with no issues for me, nice change from the OVER PRICED 4 pack gluten free take advantage of the public beers providers.
    The sooner the word gets out to the main stream Celiac forums the better…. sorghum sucks. Thanks for your efforts.

    Steffen, thank you for all the hard work and investment. I re-found this website recently and appreciate the new findings. My wife and I (she is Celiac and I am very sensitive/probably Celiac) have no issue with Coors light and it is our go-to, easy and cheap beer.
