Test Kit: GlutenTox Home Kit

Barrett 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: A red line appears on the right of the test stick ( T ). The red line indicates the presence of gluten equal to or above 20 ppm. 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 positive please note it is not a medical advice – see my facts page.

    Thanks for the test Barrett.

    This beer is unfiltered. I experienced very often already that unfiltered beer contains higher gluten amounts than filtered beers.

    Cheers Steffen

    Thanks! I’ll learn to look for that. Next beer I’d like to test would be Weistephaner at 20ppm, unless that’s already been done.

      The Weihenstephaner Helles (which is their Lager-style beer) was tested positive on the 5 ppm threshold. I tested it two years ago and it was brewed in Germany:

      If they brew under licence in other countries this already can return a different test result as the breweries often have slightly different processes.

      Which Weihenstephaner beer are you aiming to test, also the Helles or a different one?
