Is Corona Gluten-Free?

glutenfreechart0 Gluten-Free Confidence Score: 0/10


Note: Gluten-Free Options Are Available For This Product

There’s a lot of controversy with Corona and its gluten-free status, but here are the facts. 1) Corona contains barley, which is a gluten-containing grain. 2) Due to various processes the company has in place, the gluten count goes down, and Corona tests below the 20ppm. Does this make Corona gluten-free?

We here at the GFB personally believe that if it contains a gluten ingredient in its inception, this makes Corona not gluten-free. You can read a more detailed report on Corona in this great post by GF blogger Gluten Dude. There are so many great gluten-free beers and ciders out there to choose from, we recommend you buy something else. Please read the ingredient and nutrition label carefully. Need help in understanding what to look for on those labels? We have a guide - check it out!

    I actually drink this all the time, while I can’t have pasta bud light or croutons this product does not make me sick. I suggest you research again. I’ve seen sites and things that prove otherwise.

    I thought I’d be fine drinking corona after reading about celiacs who can. Nope. First sip lit my head up like I just had 3 shots of vodka. Cool 🙂 by the third sip my ear started ringing. But it stopped. A few more sips my ear started ringing again and my behind was on fire. No point in messing with it when there are other “safe” alcohols and medi marijuana to enjoy.

    I have what is called Selective IGA deficiency which takes away the ability of my intestines to process gluten and lactose. Knowing this is different from celiacs, I know my tolerance is at a different level than many others. I have had Corona numerous times and have had no problem. It does not mean this is fine for all, but it might help some.
