There are two different production methods that qualify a product as ‘Gluten Free’. Either no gluten is used at all during the production process or the gluten can be removed to a value <20ppm.
SkinnyBrands Premium Lager is gluten removed to a value of <10ppm (lower than the 20ppm threshold). We do this by exposing the beer to filtering enzymes during fermentation which remove the gluten at the end of the brewing process.
By being gluten removed, we can still use traditional brewing methods and this includes using malted barley (a gluten) and by doing so we ensure that we are a great tasting and full flavour premium lager.
SkinnyBrands Premium Lager is Coeliac Society certified Gluten Free. This means that we meet the strict range of criteria as set out and closely monitored by the Coeliac Society to ensure that we are gluten free, both in terms of our ingredients and our production process.
This criteria includes testing for gluten using a UKAS accredited laboratory and our production facilities must meet the requirements of the AOECS Standard for Gluten Free Foods.
Our certificate licences are Europe GB 093 001 & Global CUK G 134.
In 2020 we were shortlisted for the Best Gluten Free Beer at the UK Free From Awards.
