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.

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
