Safe Lunch Meat?
0

9 posts in this topic

Hello,

We'd like to make a deli platter for the holidays but I'm having trouble pinning down a brand of lunch meat that is gluten free. We'd like ham, turkey and possibly chicken but I find that when I try them randomly (from the deli case at my local Albertson's) that half the time I get sick. Does anyone know which brands of lunch meat are gluten free? I live in a very small town without access to any kind of health food store and it's a little late to order something online so it has to be something we can get from the regular grocery store. I really appreciate the help. Happy Holiday's all. Good luck and blessings, Prana

All Boars head is gluten-free (Checked with them in November and as of Nov. 20th their entire line went gluten-free)...also Black Bear Virginia Ham, Turkey, Smoked Ham and Bologna is gluten-free (Just make sure you get the pre packaged meat from the manufacturer because the deli slicer will contaminate the meat)....my deli guy won't even use a clean slicer because there is still too much risk of possable contamination for me)

Theres way to much risk of CC in a deli, unless they are CC awere/senstive. I just stick with Oscar Myer. All thier products will be clearly noted in thier ingredinets if there is any gluten in them.

I also stopped going to the deli because of cross contamination. I use Oscar Meyer, Hillshire Farm and Kroger brands. I make sure to always read the label (it always grosses me out)!

Diestel and Applegate farms have prepacked deli meats that are safe.

Call me kookie, but I didn't know there were deli meats that had gluten in them. I always get my deli from the counter at my market (Whole Foods). I am asymtptomatic, so I don't know if I am ingesting gluten. Are you all telling me that I should only by prepackaged deli meat?

Black Bear there was no risk...Deli Manager at Shopr rite got the pre sliced/ Pre Packaged ones from Black Bear...guarenteed gluten-free. My deli guy won't even use his slicer (no matter how clean) because he doesn't want the chance of making me sick. As long as it is sliced and packaged from manufacturer and guarenteed by them gluten-free...ther is no risk.

I'm not an expert on this, having just converted from vegetarianism, but my understanding is that in the deli section are glazed hams and other meats with coatings and flavorings, and these can contain gluten. So, one, you'd want to check on the one you're buying, and two, the slicing machine slices all meats and doesn't get cleaned between meats/customers, so you run the risk of contamination.

Now, if you were at an old fashioned butcher, who only sliced 100% pure meats with no added nuthin's, then I would think it'd be safe. ??

    • I havent used it, not much of a baker tbh, but this one looks good: http://alittleinsanity.com/gluten-free-pie-crust-recipe/
    • As you say, there's no test, it's diagnosed by exclusion, so there's no metrics to check to assess compliance other than anecdotal response to symptoms. Conversely, I've not seen anything that says that NCGI can resolved or be cured either.  This paper gives a good summation.  Basically, there's not much research period! That is changing though, I think there's research underway which could help give answers.
    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
