Silly Question Re: Turkey

I'm still suffering after turkey dinner on Easter.  My in-laws stuffed the turkey (with gluten of course) and I took a risk and ate some that my husband carved off the top with a clean knife.  Bad idea right?  The gluten would be in the juices?  If they basted it, for sure the top would be covered in gluten.  If it wasn't basted, it could still seep through right?

we ate a frozen turkey a few weeks ago. only salt and pepper on it. My husband started feeling weird right away. my daughter- age 10- had brain fog all night and could not add or subtract simple problems. then husband had full blown gluten symptoms. lasted for 3 days!! it was awful. I called the store and the plain frozen turkey had gluten in it.  so...gluten could have been in the actual turkey for you, not the stuffing!

Yes, Yes, Yes and Yes.   Anna you scored 100%!   But...it's a learning process.  We all make mistakes. 

 

One Thanksgiving, I brought my own cooked cornish hen.  Everyone else enjoyed the stuffed Turkey, but I had my own "mini-me".  The kids loved it!

 

We have all been in your shoes, but I hope you feel better soon.  :)

 

Edit:  And there are no silly questions here :rolleyes:

I have NEVER met an unstuffed Turkey that contained gluten.  What brand was it? What store was it?

 

Perhaps you were mistaken as to your husbands source of gluten.

Yep! And Yep!

Never eat a stuffed with gluten turkey and never saw a plain frozen turkey with gluten. A few of them have a gravy packet, I have heard, but it is sealed and you would just throw it out.

I think they sometimes inject a gluten water mix to give you a nice moist product.  Beware.

I have never seen an unstuffed turkey that contained gluten of any form.  Why don't you contact the producers of Perdue or Jenny-O (for example) and get back with us about your theory?

I'm  with Lisa  never in the  US  seen  gluten  in  an unstuffed  turkey. Now  sometimes  a  separate  flavor  pack is  enclosed--- DO  NOT  USE  IT...

Thanks for all the replies.  I've learned my lesson.  No more being polite when the in-laws "forget" that I have Celiac.  They can watch me eat steamed veggies at Christmas!   :rolleyes:

 

On a positive note, the gluten-free carrot cake I made for dessert turned out great!

I wouldn't eat anything they prepared.  They have no understanding of Cc.  They might wash and drain the veggies in the colander they have used for 5 years for gluten pasta.

I thought birds were not safe because they were pumped full of brining solution that contains additives that contain gluten. I need to look up what is safe

Welcome Night Owl!

 

You have been reading some bad press on gluten-free my friend.

 

Here is what I know == and has been tested with the 6 gluten-free members of my family.

 

Fresh meat never contains gluten -- there are a few brands of pork that add some minor preservatives --- none of which contain gluten.

 

So...when in doubt....buy fresh....this doesn't mean expensive....I often buy very expensive cuts of meat at a discount because they need to be eaten or FROZEN within a day or two....I never wait...those go in the freeze.

 

Adjust. Adapt. Learn.

    • No gluten allergy because I don't have classic symptoms of celiac
      after you get yourself squared away, these docs need reporting.  out right lying to you...
    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      Hi CeliacMommaX2, 'Yes, you must treat oats like wheat in a situation where gluten free oats cause the same response. I would also not use pots or pans for your daughter, that you have cooked oats in, as there is always a chance that there are traces left in the pans after washing up.  It's better safe than sorry. 
    • In Dire Need Of Help
      Alex the good news is you have found a great site with useful information and warm support! You need to work with your doctor to get a diagnosis but there are plenty here who have had similar experiences: http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/search/?&q=panic%20attack so it sounds like your on the right lines   Take heart that you have probably found the cause now rather than later.  Follow CyclingLady's excellent advice above and go for celiac screening asap. For tests to work you need to be eating gluten for some time. That is a scary prospect when you've finally experienced some relief but it's for a limited time period, you can get support here along the way and if you choose to you can go gluten-free at the end and get relief whatever the results.  Once you're done testing and off the gluten you will be in a much better position to nail the lifestyle. That may mean some pre-planning, maybe taking a backpack with some gluten-free snacks with you, at least until you find the places you can reliably eat at. There are apps and sites that can help and probably local support groups in NYC as well: https://www.google.co.uk/?ion=1&espv=2#q=new%20york%20gluten%20free%20restaurants With research you'll also get to know what fast food options are viable, what readily available candy bars are ok etc. I can eat Mcdonalds fries for instance, which can come in handy if I'm away from my kitchen or supplies. Most starbucks or equivalents will have at least a gluten-free snack bar. So although a pain in the arse, it's doable and the health payoffs MORE than make up for the hassle.  Good luck! 
    • to biopsy or not?
      I ordered the cookbook the same day you recommended it.  I am SO excited!  I actually cried looking through the book!  I honestly don't believe I am good at all in the kitchen.  I am lucky enough to have a husband who cooks everything when he's home.  The only thing I felt skilled at in the kitchen was baking.  I made all of my kids' birthday cakes for the last 8 years.  I was sad thinking that we wouldn't have anything good for a birthday cake.  I mean, I've tried gluten free cake from a box, but it was just ok.  It wasn't amazing the way a homemade cake can be.  So now I have hope.  Hope that maybe my non-celiac kids will enjoy a birthday cake still.  My daughter (the most-likely-to-be-celiac one) never really ate birthday cake to begin with.   So this summer is her birthday and we will find out if it's good!  Thank you for the recommendation!!!   Janis
    • antibiotic for my 6 year old- could it have gluten?

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
