Gluten & Wheat Free Lager/Beer 500ml - Just 63p From £2.54 **Instore** Tesco

Found 21st Jul 2012
Just seen these beers in my local Tesco Metro in Macclesfield. My other half has coeliac disease so we always wander down the gluten/wheat free section and I saw these.

These are never on sale and are always £2.50 plus in Tesco or Sainsburys.

Here is a link to the brewer's website - hambletonales.co.uk/gfa…htm

This would be a cracking deal even if it wasn't for gluten free beer/lager at £.063 for 500ml. Fantastic price. Plus they actually taste very nice as she has tried them and reckoned they don't taste any different to normal bottled beers. Best before 11/12 for the lager and 03/13 for the bitter.

No idea if this is nationwide just in case anyone asks :-)

They also had a number of other gluten and wheat free stuff on offer like seed bars down from £2 to 40p.

Not true. As a Celiac myself, I have found that a lot of the Wheat and Gluten Free foods are as good as those with wheat and gluten.

For example, Genius Bread is as good as any normal multi-grain sliced bread. The only downside is the price - £2.99 for a loaf!

Fortunately, M&S make a lot of their standard products without Gluten - for example their Pork Sausages, normal range not specially Gluten free, £1.19 for 8. Tesco "Free From" 8 sausages £2.00...

Heat anyway, not that I drink, but might help someone out

I've still got a dozen of the Free From Christmas Puddings that Tesco reduced to 20p in January that were mentioned on HUKD - best before mid-2013!
Any chance of calorie free beer......
These taste pretty horrible compared to the Estrella and Premium Pils lagers, but they cost a fortune. Good price for these though
Do you reckon many starving people in 3rd world countries have coeliac 'disease'?

Yes, they do and unfortunately it often goes undiagnosed. This means they suffer with symptoms similar to irritable bowel syndrome and painful cramps and they spend most of their lives malnourised due to the damage their bodies do to their stomach lining trying to destroy the gluten from their diet. This often leads to early brittle bone disease due to life deficiances in calcium among others.
Please consider that comments like these, while funny to some, poke fun at people with a diagnosed illness that they didn't ask for or do anything to get, much like people with nut allergies, skin conditions, asthma etc.

People don't ask to have this disease. It is not a lifestyle choice.

Rant over.

Ive been on a low fodmap diet for the past month now which includes cutting out gluten the only exception being is I can eat spelt flour.

Its hard to find decent gluten-free alternatives and most of the stuff in supermarkets are tollerable at best I find. Genius bread is bar far the best GF bread Iv'e tasted though im beginning to really missing "normal bread" now. It must have been an absolute nightmare for coeliacs a decade or more ago, at least now you can get stuff as long as you can afford it!

Some probably do but sadly will never be able to anything about it. Its like when they have to drink dirty water and they dont know if its safe or not.... Sorry what was your point, other than to belittle people with coeliacs and people who live in Africa and Asia and then to smile about it?

I guess my point was that complaining about the lack of choice re. gluten-free food is pretty incredible considering the fact that lots of people in the World don't have enough of ANY type of food to stay alive. Maybe we should just be thankful for what we DO have available.

Idiotic comment from an ignorant ass!!!!! This isn't a moral issue like vegetarianism, my OH suffers with coeliac disease and I tell you, they would NOT do it by choice!!!! Next time use google before making yourself look stupid, its like posting on thread for a wheelchair deal that disabled people should stop being lazy and learn to walk!!! (_;)

I think you need to read my follow-up comment. Re. the wheelchair analogy - that's just ridiculous. However, if a disabled person complained about the choice of wheelchairs, it wouldn't be desperately unreasonable to suggest that they be thankful for having ANY wheelchair at all, as one assumes that there are plenty of disabled people who haven't got access to one.

yeah its pretty incredible how people with coeliacs cant tell their body to stop attacking itself when they eat gluten.

What? When did I say they should tell their body this? You're side-stepping the 'don't complain' point because you know it's valid. You're making out I'm suggesting that the disease doesn't actually exist when I'm not.

Personally I just drink cider as I very rarely see gluten free beer.

I read a couple of weeks ago that a lot of people drink budweiser. Apparently the way it is brewed removes the protein that causes the problems.

I would also like to recommend m&s, their burgers and sausages are lovely and they use a gluten free crumb. I have tried a lot of gluten free sausages before and generally I find they taste like cardboard and don't even cook properly.

I'd love to see if you had the same attitude if you, or someone you love had a condition and some sanctimonious ass came up to them and told them to be grateful for what they had!!
Nice find OP, I don't drink beer, but always good to see the Gluten Free stuff at a decent price. I am currently going through tests to see if I have a gluten intollerance. Seems like it is a big problem these days, which they are saying may be down to the GM crops and the pesticides used, as it wasnt that much of an issue 30 years ago.
I think a lot goes down to the fact that awareness and testing is better nowadays. I think in the past, doctors shared Tarquins view that people were being fussy, luckily, things have moved on!!!

Suggest you try making your own, you can get the mix on prescription along with quite a few other staples. At the end of the day, gluten is what binds the bread and makes it moist and "bread-like". Until they come up with an alternative you're stuck, suggest you keep eating it, OH used to hate it but now finds it OK (its a bit like dropping sugar in tea I was told, horrible at first but gets better over time!)

What a ridiculous comment to make. I have a 1 year old nephew who has been diagnosed with severe coeliacs after months of tests to find out why he is in constant pain and showing signs of malnutrition even though he was getting regular feeds. It is not a made-up 'disease' as you seem to think.

Please think about how your smart-**** comments will affect others before opening your mouth in future!
I wasnt sure about the Budweiser so I never tried it. I'm happy enough with my fruit drinks!!

I find it quite hard to find information at times. I have discovered on numerous occasions that a food or drink discussed on American forums an deemed to be gluten free is not for us in the uk market because the company has slightly altered their ingredients.

It can be a painful mistake to make

America is woefully bad with coeliacs despite their developed status. I asked in numerous restaurants if stuff was gluten free and they looked at me like I'd just taken a dump on the salad bar!! Even the Customer Services at Disney suggested we asked them a burger without the bun?!?! Luckily we found an English girl working at one of the food outlets who understood and was excellent, oh and Discovery cove were absolutely fantastic even offering to let the OH observe him (head chef) cook her meal!!

Its no different in the uk, recently i was lucky enough to be treated to a meal at a Michelin star restaurant and they were vague to say the least

@Tarquin8484
Despite the amendment in your later post you must surely see the flaws in your first post, even i who has suffered this attitude for some forty years now was taken back at the level of ignorance it implies.

As for the deal, well i feel its probably more of a marketing exercise as the processes in large scale commercial beer manufacture rarely leave gluten in beer
this is because gluten is a, not water soluble and b, coagulates very easily so is easily filtered out.
#Obviously this does not apply to "real ales" which can be seen from their cloudy appearance often contain gluten.

The European guides set a limit of 20ppm (parts per million) for something to qualify as gluten free, something which unfortunately my body disputes but i have never had a reaction to any commercial produced beer.
I was under the impression that Sapporo beer from Japan is gluten-free, please correct me if i'm wrong and although it contains barley it is brewed using rice as the grain whereby the brewing process makes any barley content harmless as it no longer contains gluten.
I think you'd have to try it to see if you 'react' to it.

Its really nice and you can get it in Tesco's tesco.com/gro…483

Pesticides & residues on crops were also not used in bygone years.Due to the advent of medical research we are, today, able to diagnose more conditions & symptoms (not necessarily linked to food, but also mental & physical impairments, for example).The intolerances, hypersensitivity, or allergies may well have been as widespread years ago, but we either were not taking the substances or the average life expectancy was less than the typical age at which most symptoms manifest themselves.
