A story that began with a disease and now offers a better life standard for those who suffer this disease. They can now enjoy a cool beer without it affecting their health. Winkler was released last Friday on Argentina.
Engineer Ventura Basutto said that “It all began a year ago when my wife was diagnosed the Celiac disease“.
“The thing is that those who suffer it, are allergic to a protein fraction of cereals: wheat, oats, barley and rye. The problem for them, is that no matter of how little they ingest, a reaction takes place, where in general presents breakdowns including prolonged diarrheas, they don’t absorb nutrients, with which they are generally of small stature, with skin problems, nails, hair, etc. It is almost like undernourishment”.
He stated that “it is hard to follow a strict diet, since many food contain gluten or starches of wheat, like thickers or bonding agents (cooked sausages and cold cuts, ice creams, condiments like mayonnaises, etc)“. Knowing that Ventura added:
“Specifically, I began with the elaboration of corn beer because it does not exist in the market. The process is the same used with barley: the corn is germinated and malted, then grinded, we use water for the mash, then it’s filtered, we add hop, yeast and it goes to fermentation stage. We are bottling in 660cm3 and 355cm3, and it is carbonated while bottling”.
