Charcoal-for Bbqing

2 posts in this topic

Last summer I had written to the Kingsford Charcoal Company after getting sick several times while grilling. I personally stay away from charcoal after reading this letter, they claim that the wheat in the charcoal would have burned up due to the high heat, however my stomach says different!! I grill with a gas grill now. I hope this saves someone a gluten accident.


Letter from 5-03

Thank you for taking the time to contact us about KINGSFORD Briquets. We

appreciate your interest in our products.

Both corn and wheat starches are used in this product, but we predominantly use

cornstarch. In any case, the briquets burn at such a high temperature that the

starch is burned, it does not transfer to the food.

We do not make any food products that do not contain gluten.

If I can be of further assistance to you, please contact me again.

Again, thank you for contacting us.

You don't have to give up charcoal completely. Find a hardware or kitchen store that sells natural charcoal. This is charred wood with no starch, fillers, or chemicals. It burns and tastes better.
