the stuff your store's butcher grinds should absolutely be gluten-free - verify it with them. if it's not, ask them to grind it in the store. (they certainly won't put bread through the grinder (feel free to check with them if you're worried, of course), as it would affect the grinder.)

I have yet to find a store ground beef that is anything except 100 percent beef.

You are lucky richard, stores around here add colorings, and preservatives and fillers!!! Always ask your butcher!!

Wal-Mart meats have 8-15% of a "solution" added to "preserve freshness." I shop for meat at my local small store, where they don't add anything.

I knew there was a reason not to shop at Walmart. Are you sure this 8-15 percent was in ground beef? I expect to pay for ground beef. And fillers in ground beef? That doesn't surpise me at a restaurant to help hold the patty together or in meatloaf, but not in store beef. The beef I usually buy at Kroger says 100 percent beef. Nothing else. Man I'm glad I don't have the groceries you have.

Hmm, I'll have to go to my Kroger store (Dillon's) and check out the meat there. The label on the meat at Wal Mart says right on it that it is "enhanced" with a solution. When I asked the meat department people about it, none of them knew what it is. I do not like "mystery" food! Thanks for the tip-off on the Kroger store, I have a preferred shopper discount card for that store!

I know that all processed meats have gluten in them but what about ground beef?

Is there a difference between regular or extra lean? Do either of them have gluten fillers in them?

Thanks!

What processed meats are you talking about? Deli meat? If so, virtually every deli meat is gluten-free. You have to question the company, but at least in the U.S. very, very few have gluten. For instance in the U.S., every prepackaged meat by Hillshire Farm, Carl Buddig and Sara Lee is gluten-free (some Sara Lee meats that you have sliced at the counter DO have gluten). Every meat by Boar's Head except two are gluten-free. I imagine that vitually every Oscar Meyer meat is gluten-free, but to find out all you have to do is read the ingredients. Kraft clearly lists gluten.

Some here say they have found ground meat with fillers or gluten but I never have. If it says 100 percent beef and there are no other ingredients, it should be fine.

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      ...and CoQ10 deficiencies can occur in those taking statin drugs.  Really important to monitor that if you are on statins.

      I guess you must have to be a member then. I don't know because I am a member. It doesn't cost anything & I've never gotten any junk mail from them or anything unpleasant.  Gee, I didn't even think about that when I posted the link. OOPS! Let me know if you need me to copy & paste it because I will if you want.

      Hey, do you have to be a member of Medscape to see the article?  I could not get in pass the sign-in page.  
    • Starting out
      Ugh!  Run from that doctor.  Are you located on Mars?  Kidding aside, here's the deal.  If you go gluten free just to test it out and you feel good, then you might think you have a gluten issue.   A few months or a year go by and you realize that this is HARD.  REALLY HARD.  So, you start to cheat.  You get sloppy.  You start sharing a toaster.  Your symptoms come back, but you don't worry about it or maybe you start to get violently ill.  Symptoms so different from your old symptoms that you think you must have something else.  (You could be the type of person who makes a decision and sticks with it.  But those are rare folks.)   I could go on with more stories, but type in lymphoma in our forum's search box.  Look at member's who were misdirected by their physicians and who have had celiac disease all along.  Now they are dealing with cancer.   It is not my intent to scare you into thinking you have cancer.  The odds of you having it are slim and none.  I am trying to scare you into finding another doctor who really CARES about you and follows a normal standard level of care (like reading currant medical journals or checking Dr. Google, like my ER neighbor doctor does because he can not know everything!) It's just a simple blood test.  So easy.  If negative, then give the diet a try!
    • "Celiac disease prevents absorption of iron"
      Well, you are no longer anemic, so that's great!  As long as you are healed, you should be able to absorb iron easily.   Of course, there could be other issues that would prevent you from absorbing iron as villi damage can occur from many things other than celiac disease.   Want to know for sure where you stand?  Ask your doctor to check your iron and iron store levels the next time you have a physical.

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
