There was a very clear result on the latest beer poll. Well, it strangly jumped on one day from a very close result to a huge lead and at the end to a clear winner. It seems “somebody” was really interested in getting this beer tested and voted over and over for Tuborg. Anyway – a poll is a poll and even without this “somebody” it was not unlikely that Tuborg wins this poll. 

I tested the German variant of the Tuborg pilsner and I don’t know if this is similar to the “Tuborg Green”. If you know please use the comments to let us know. 

And here is the test result:

Beer: Tuborg Pilsener
Producer: Carlsberg
Originating country: Denmark
Brewing location: Germany
Bottle size: 500 ml
Alcohol by volume: 4.9%
Ingredients: Water, barley malt, hops
Miscellaneous: on the label stated that the beer was brewed in Germany in accordance with the German purity law

Tuborg Pilsener Gluten Test Tuborg Pilsener Gluten Test Tuborg Pilsener Gluten Test

Test Kit: Imutest Gluten-in-Food Kit

Test result: There is a very faint but visbile pink test spot on the left of the test area ( T ) which indicates the presence of gluten. According to the instructions a “very low gluten” level of 20 to 100 ppm should give a test spot which is weaker or similar in intensity to that of the control spot ( C ). As this spot is very faint the gluten level seems to be much below 20 ppm.

On a scale from 1 to 20 I would rate the test spot intensity 2. As Imutest uses the R5 antibody since a while it is difficult to estimate the gluten level in ppm in comparison to Skerritt antibody they used earlier, hence I will mark the test just positive. Please find some more information here. Even though this test is positive please note it is not a medical advice – see my facts page.
