  • The Truth about Gluten Free Oats - The Gluten Free Voice with Jules

    in Food

    For years, oats were considered unsafe for those with celiac disease and gluten sensitivity. Over time, we learned that oats in fact do not contain gluten, but they are so heavily contaminated during growth, cultivation, processing and packaging, that they almost always contain too much gluten to be considered gluten free under the FDA's new less than 20 parts per million of gluten standard. 

    Thankfully, some growers embraced the idea of a "purity protocol" whereby they would only grow oats on certain fields and they would harvest, process and package these oats apart from any gluten containing grain like wheat, barley and rye. These dedicated gluten free oats have offered a safe, high fiber, nutrient dense food to add into the gluten free diet.  

    Recently, some mainstream food manufacturers in the US have begun to offer oat-based products to GF consumers, sold as "mechanically separated" oats, not using the purity protocol. These products are said to test to less than 20ppm gluten and are being labeled as gluten free. Find out what this process entails, the current results of testing these products and the various opinions on its safety during this special episode on oats. Tune in to learn the difference between oats to decide what's safe for your diet and for your family.

    Coors' Launches New Gluten Free Beer - the Gluten Free Voice with Jules

    in Food

    Gluten-free expert, author, coach and advocate Jules Shepard hosts the Gluten Free Voice Radio show offering GF news, interviews with intriguing guests, gluten-free baking tips and otherwise lively conversation.

    Gluten free is more than a lifestyle choice - it's a lifestyle necessity for so many of us. Transitioning well to living gluten free is in large part dependent on finding suitable replacements for the gluten-filled food and drink you enjoyed before -- whether they be everyday staples or occasional indulgences. Beer is one of the things folks lament foregoing the most (along with pizza and a great sandwich bread). As an author, baker and manufacturer of gluten-free flour and baking mixes, I can solve the problem of finding a great gluten-free pizza and sandwich bread, but making a great gluten-free beer I know nothing about! So my special guest is here to talk about how and why MillerCoors has introduced Coors Peak, a beer made for those of us who love beer but who cannot tolerate what traditional beers are made of.

    Ryan Marek is a senior marketing manager of branded innovation at MillerCoors. He will join me to discuss how Coors Peak came to be, why MillerCoors decided to stick to using gluten-free grains in the production of this beer (rather than using controversial "de-glutenizing" enzymes in barley beers), and what the marketing strategy ahead will be for this newest offering.

    Tune in to learn more about gluten in beer, how to make a beer without it, and what choices lie ahead for gluten-free beer loving consumers.
