Q&A: what beers can a person with celiac disease drink?

Question by Shaw: what beers can a person with celiac disease drink?
i know of magners and strongbow the cyders but what about guinesses or carling because its not made from wheat?

thanks.

Best answer:

Answer by R.

Beers made from 100% Sorghum. These are generally brewed specifically for those with a hypersensitivity to gluten.

Guinness, while not made from wheat, is made from malted barley (as are most beer), which people with celiac disorder should avoid primarily due to a high probability of cross contamination with other gluten containing grains.

Sorghum is a cereal grain very popular throughout the world, mainly cultivated in Africa and parts of Asia. It contains no gluten.

Commercial Sorghum brews include:

Redbridge – by Anheuser-Busch)
New Grist Beer – by Lakefront Brewery of Milwaukee
Dragon’s Gold. – by Bard’s Tale Beer Co. in Kansas City

Though not a Sorghum, Ramapo Valley Brewing of Hillburn, N.Y has a Passover Honey Beer made from hops, honey and molasses.

But always check the label to verify that it is indeed gluten free, celiac safe

Q&A: I have just been diagnosed with Celiac disease and also just found out I am pregnant.

Question by : I have just been diagnosed with Celiac disease and also just found out I am pregnant.
This is my third pregnancy after two miscarriages. I am terrified at the idea of another miscarriage, especially that I have not yet started the gluten free diet. Is it too late to save this pregnancy?

Best answer:

Answer by tiggsy

Gluten intolerance (and celiac is just the best well known type of this) has been found to cause miscarriage in some women. So you have a great incentive to go 100% gluten free – because it won’t just impact your own life expectancy but the life expectancy of your child.

Why haven’t you started the gluten free diet? It’s vital you start immediately. Gluten is poison, not just for you, but potentially for your child, as well.

A study has shown that celiacs that cheat or don’t follow a gluten free diet have a correspondingly shorter lifespan. They did this by taking blood tests, so they knew who cheated, even when they did not admit it.

Gluten-Free Diet Program

Gluten-free diet program is a certain type of diet wherein one basically has to eat gluten-free food. Gluten refers to the protein seen in rye, wheat, barley, and other related grains. You can find that gluten gluten has several types, among those are gliadin found in wheat, secalin through rye, and hordein which is seen in barley.

It has been proven that gluten can bring about certain health issues to people who happen to be intolerant of it and those who are diagnosed with Celiac disease. These people are not allowed to consume food items that contain gluten as it can be detrimental to their small intestines. Also, such people lack the capacity to digest gluten which causes health problems to surface. If you are one of these unfortunate souls, it’s not the end of the world for you yet as there’s always a solution to every problem. Case in point: gluten-free alternatives.

A gluten-free diet plan is not intended solely for those who are diagnosed with Celiac, but it also a wise means to shed unwanted pounds. Research has it that gluten-free products generally contain high levels of dietary fiber which is known to make one feel full easily, forcing you to eat less.

You may opt for gluten-free pastries at breakfast such as gluten-free bread and muffins which can be no more than 200 calories per serving. Perhaps, you want to have gluten-free pasta for dinner or lunch. These days, it is so easy to avail of such kinds of food. You may even prepare them all by yourself! There is an array to choose from in the groceries and even online. However, they can be a bit pricier as compared to the ordinary counterparts.

Nevertheless, don’t let the price hinder you from eating healthily. Besides, if you go for regular food items, you know you’ll be suffering harder from all the damages gluten brings, just so you know.
