Modelo Especial Mexican gluten free beer low gluten test results celiac intolerance





















Test result
Negative at 20 parts per million (ppm), meaning it is less than 20 ppm gluten. Though standards vary from country to country, according to the FDA, "in order to use the term 'gluten free' on its label a food must meet all the requirements of the definition, including that the food must contain less than 20 ppm gluten". It is said that products with a gluten content below 20 ppm are suitable for people with celiac disease.

My experience drinking Modelo Especial
I am not sure where I fall in the gluten tolerance spectrum. I definitely know what it feels like to be "glutened" i.e. gluten exposure, but I have not deliberately pushed my gluten consumption limits with any food or beer. This is the first time I have ever had Modelo Especial and had no reaction drinking this 24 oz can in around one hour.

  1. I had three bottles of this beer and I can tell you that it very much includes gluten, I had the worse night in my life running between the bathroom and the bedroom.

    1. Historically beer has resulted generalized GI distress, i.e. gas, bloat, loose stool, etc. I switched to Corona as it was listed as <20 PPM and technically could be marketed as "gluten free" per FDA criteria. I have tolerated Corona much better than any other beer in the past. I have now tried Modelo especial with similar findings. I have never been tested for celiac, but if i'm a bit "gluten intolerant" (if there is such a condition), I have not had the problems with Modelo especial that I had with many, many other beers.

  2. Thanks for the reply, I will sure try coronoa but I have to tell you that modelo especial gave me all the symptoms of a gluten intolerance ( I am diagnosed with celiac) , I did have it with food (gluten free food, so no mix up here) which means that the effect of intolerance was magnified, however if I consume beer on a nearly empty stomach I don't get as much symptoms. However bottom line modelo is not safe for celiacs based on experience

    1. they don't use gluten in the brewing process at all. the ingredients do not include any wheat, barley, rue or even oats. My guess is that your gastro system is sensitive to more than just gluten. it's hard to distinguish sometimes when you have multiple things contributing. However I am far more effected by simply eating oats contaminated with wheat than with drinking modelo.

  3. Ok, last night I tested the Mexican Corona Extra, so I bought a six pack and to my amazement it did not give me any gluten after effects, so stomach pain, no feeling nausea, no diarrhea, no gas, nothing, and just to be sure I had a full bag of Doritos and sliced turkey cuts, again nothing. Thanks to all for finding us a readily available solution for having a beer every once and a while

    1. The night went very well, no gluten effects, slept like a baby, woke up refreshed no issues whatsoever, Corona is officially gluten symptom free however might contain gluten :)

    2. That's from mixing and too much alcohol honey.

  5. I am a diagnosed Celiac. I normally drink Gluten Free beer that has been labelled as such.

    In Western Canada, (in my opinion) the best available gluten free beers are:

    1) Mongozo Pilsner (Belgium)- light and crisp. Try and drink just one.
    2) Glutengurg (Quebec, Canada)- these guys make 5 great Gluten free beers. The IPA and Red are top shelf.
    3) Daura Damm (Spain) - Smooth and Easy to drink. This is a great session beer and (as far as I can remember from my pre-celiac days) a great all around beer.

    I have had Modello since being diagnosed as a Celiac numerous times. I haven't had any form of gluten reaction from this beer.

    The Swedish government sponsored a study on Gluten content in beer. Less that 10 ppm of Gluten was identified in Modello. Here are the other resultz: http://liveatthewitchtrials.blogspot.ca/2012/12/gluten-levels-of-73-beers.html?m=1

    3. Really! I'm a celiac too and I miss so much regular beer,so is safe?

    4. "Safe" would not be what I would call it, maybe decent bet. Gluten is not something breweries monitor and slight changes can make a difference. The gluten is coming from the grain and the composition of that grain changes harvest to harvest. Any beer labeled as "gluten reduced" or "gluten free" would be a much "safer" bet since you know they are monitoring the gluten. As I mentioned later home brewers can use an additive that will reduce the gluten to below 5ppm. If I didn't brew I would go make friends with a home brewer. For one thing they love a challenge. The reduced gluten method came out of home brewers trying to make gluten free beer for friends and family who couldn't handle gluten.

  6. Wrong ingredients listed. The Modelo Especial website says there is no rice in it.
    "Modelo Especial is made with filtered water, malted barley, hops, corn and yeast."

  7. There is some misinformation in the above. The last I saw <10ppm could be labeled "gluten free" if you are a food, but beer is not considered "food" and for beer to be labeled "gluten free" it has to actually have 0 ppm.

    If I had celiac I would not touch anything that wasn't actually labeled gluten free.

    As a brewer I can say that there are a number of "gluten reduced" beers out there. They use compound that neutralizes the gluten. This will get the beer someplace between 0 - 5ppm. That should be safe for all but the most reactive people.

    All beer brewed with barley or wheat that is not treated will have a good dose of gluten, it's in the grain. There are some beers brewed with grains that don't have gluten in the first place. They are getting better, the early tries were not very good. Also if you know a home brewer the additive that neutralizes gluten is available at most home brew stores and is not expensive.

  8. I'm a celiac/dermatosis herpediformis (wiki it, its loads of fun) and I've had no problems with this beer. Drank it for 2 weeks in Mexico without symptoms of any kind.

  9. I just checked their website and it says they use barely not rice. I'm confused now. I still don't get a gluten reaction but used to get a corn one from it. I do get a reaction from Corona for sure.

I am so scared what my mates are going to says if there should fined out i have herpes on my genital area and due to the virus my girlfriend broke up with me. I have been to the Doctors 9 times to get it treated. They all come back. I have been using Tee Tree Oil and Wartner (You freeze them at home) and they seem to be keeping the smaller herpes small but they can't seem to treat the larger ones. They don't get any bigger, but then they can't shrink as much. They get smaller a little part at a time. At least they are getting smaller! As soon as I see a new herpes appearing, then I treat it. At the moment I have been using Tee Tree twice a week and then using Wartner every 2 weeks. I was wondering if there was any other information about how to get rid of it. I am only a teenager and I hate it most when it get pi-chins me to scratch it, it get sweets when scratching it most times! I want to get rid of it so bad! DR. Oyagu website has been a huge help and has helped me realize a lot more about me and my family of genital herpes! so that was when I switch for natural remedy to see if there could be any help by herbal remedy, I search and I saw a great posts by Sarah devise Martha, Mignon Wright and shanttel Merritt on about the great herbal doctor that get them rid of there disease infection. and this great herbal doctor was called DR. Oyagu so that was when I contacted him for my own treatment and he prepared me some herbs which I takes for some couples of days, and I take it as he says before I am to no me and my family was perfectly cure for it and never experience it again. please friends if you have herpes virus and you really wants to get rid of it, please contact this great DR. Oyagu for herbal treatment and you will get rid of it. EMAIL. oyaguherbalhome@gmail.com reach him via his website;https://oyaguspellcaster.wixsite.com/oyaguherbalhome thank you'll

  13. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC (www.ultimatelifeclinic.com) in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.

  15. I was diagnosed with Celiac long ago and as my age advanced the side effects got amplified, I consume gluten free beer, however I did consume both Coronoa and Modelo on various occasions and have experienced NO to FULL gluten effects on both brands which pushes me to think that it depends on the batch rather than the brand, some batches will have more gluten than others that's why they are not branded as gluten free.
    Gluten free beers on the other hand are consistent on all batches.
