WHAT IS GLUTEN REDUCTION?

MOST PEOPLE CAN CONSUME FOODS CONTAINING GLUTEN WITHOUT ANY ISSUES, BUT FOR THOSE WHO CANNOT, OUR BEERS MARKED AS “GLUTEN REDUCED” ARE SAFE TO DRINK (AND DELICIOUS!) CHEERS!


THE GLUTEN REDUCTION PROCESS HAPPENS DURING FERMENTATION WITH THE USE OF A SPECIAL ENZYME KNOWN AS CLARITY FERM. PEPTIDE BONDS THAT LINK THE AMINO ACIDS PROLINE AND GLUTAMINE (THE TWO MOST PREVALENT AMINO ACIDS IN GLUTEN) ARE TARGETED AND CLEAVED APART BY THE ENZYME IN CLARITY FERM, BREAKING UP THE GLUTEN MOLECULE. THE PIECES OF GLUTEN CAN THEN PASS THROUGH THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM OF GLUTEN-INTOLERANT PEOPLE AND THOSE WHO SUFFER FROM CELIAC’S DISEASE WITHOUT NEGATIVELY AFFECTING THE BODY!
