Pepperoni
1 1

12 posts in this topic

My Mother buys pepperoni sticks or sometimes already sliced pepperoni in a bag to use in a spaghetti dish along with broccoli. I'm afraid to eat it even with gluten-free noodles because I don't know if pepperoni is gluten-free. Anyone know this? Also does anyone know of a gluten-free grated parmesan cheese?

Given that most pepperoni packages include "spices" as an ingredient, I think you really just have to call the company to confirm.

As for the cheese... The easiest option is to just get a block of fresh parmesean, and grate some as you need it. (The small pointy bits on a box grater are perfect for it.) This also gets you much better tasting parmesean! ;-) Not to mention you can try mixing it up with percornio or asagio as well.

I have had sliced pepperoni, HORMEL brand and did not have a problem with it. Matter of fact I think I read somewhere that it is gluten-free. Also my daughter eats KRAFT grated parmesan cheese and never had a problem with it either.

Hope this helps :D

Hormel Pepperoni even states "Gluten Free" right on the package!

I grate my own parmesean (much better taste) but Kraft and Kroger are definitely gluten-free.

I live in New Albany /Columbus Ohio and have just found a store call Whole Foods. Unreal!!! There are isle and isle of gluten free products. Maybe I can live with this disease after all. Anyway Hormel is gluten free and there are other pepperoni products out there. Turkey peperoni however is your best bet. Also does anyone have a good recipe for pizza crust? I herd of one but it has hemp seed and hemp oil in a buckwheat batter. Sounds a little strange but if it works it works, Also does anyone know of a gluten free italian sausage?

Thanks I h8 this!! Y-me?

This thread is ancient news. Products change in 8 years.

Look in the recipe section, use the google function ( in the top right corner) to find many pizza crust recipes.

I was actually told by someone selling gluten free pizza that while pepperoni itself is gluten free, certain companies add gluten during the curing process. I think your best bet would be to look up info on the company, or contact that company yourself. Hormel does state that it is safe.

Aria, 

This is a pretty old thread, so I don't expect any of the old members to respond.  But, it is nice to remind others to do their homework by contacting the manufacturer -- especially if you have doubts about their products containing gluten.

Gluten in pepperoni is possible, but in my experience, quite rare. I have heard this, but have never found a confirmed case (no pun intended, but if  there is gluten it is likely in the casing, not the sausage itself). Hormel (available in he US) and Piller's (in Canada) are definitely gluten-free. Both are so labeled on the package.

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
