ok so i desided to go out and do some grocery shopping so i could cook my own food instead of buying prepackaged stuff, i was walking in the deli and i spoted all the hillshire farm sausages, now they list right on there if has soy so i figured if it has wheat they would probably list it so i got it, then i got home and did a search for sausage and read that the skin(package tube) that they fill the meat into can contain gluten
so my question is has anyone had hillshire farms smoked beef sausage and if so any problems or for that matter is hillshire a safe company. i want it and it only takes 5 minutes to heat up was gonna dice it up onto my salad

Hillshire Farms will list their ingrediences.......... Soy, is not Soy Sauce that does contain wheat, other than LaChoy soy sauce.

Soy is ok unless you have a problem with soy. I don't , some do.

Pig Out..... It is also good breakfast food as well. Just don't buy the beer with brats that they have.

Then you need to know how to read lables, check with the manufacturers, and know what is safe for you to eat. You already have the abilities at your hands to know what is good and what is not safe. Granted, there are new products every day. But, we all need to depend on ourselves and the knowledge that we have aquired through this infliction. Every day is a learning experience, at least for me.

PS: If it is on the Delfi List, you can consider it safe. They did the hard work for us. I am grateful for that.

Lister,
I have the Delphi list. The hillshire farms products are all safe except the Beer Bratwurst. The Chicken Apple Sausage is produced on a line with gluten ingredients so CC is possoble with that one.

I would just like to add that if you eat the sausages and get all tripped out and symptomatic it is most likely from all the MSG in the sausages....not gluten. I never got better from just being gluten-free and I had alot of the same scary symptoms you're getting. It was from that one ingredient Monosodium Glutamate. The other ingredients (Dextrose, Natural spices, natural flavors, corn syrup and isolated soy protien) are all other sources of MSG so basically the sausages are loaded with the stuff. If you react....this is why.

I use the hillshire farm brand quite often with no problems. And about that dream you had - believe it or not, it's normal. It's your subconcious coming to grips with the diet change and life style change. I've had some doozies in the past. It's usually of eating something, then realizing that I shouldn't have and getting the food out of my mouth. That's when I usually wake up. I've been totally gluten-free now for several months and the dreams have almost completely stopped. I don't know if it's because my health is so much better or having this place to help deal with the disease. Either way, don't worry about your dreams - it's part of the process. Glad to see you're better and on the right track now with your health.

Yes, you can develop allergies to foods. It's hard to say that's what was happening to you though.

Do you have a health food store nearby? You might want to find a way to purchase more basic food items for a while, such as clean organic meats, fruits, veggies, rice...single ingredient items like that. That way you can be more confident about what you're eating, and it will help you narrow things down and figure out what exactly you are reacting to. When you eat all of that packaged processed food, it's hard to know what's making you sick (since there's so many ingredients involved as well as potentially harmful addatives). You obviously have a lot of anxiety while eating that stuff too.

You should only eat things that you are 100% comfortable eating. If you have some sort of doubt or you think something might make you sick, don't eat it. The anxiety will just make you sick anyway, and you often mention being nervous after eating something.

The best way to find safe foods while you're starting out on the gluten-free diet is to stick to the basics (single ingredient whole foods). It doesn't even have to be that much more expensive to shop that way either...and it's healthier and will help you heal faster.

I don't have the delphi list either ... I have been known to call one of my teenagers when I'm at the grocery store and have them go to a manufacturer's website to see if a product is gluten free. :lol: Will one of you please send it to me? Thank you!

I eat lots of eggs, cottage cheese, kifir, canned red salmon (it's Alaskan and not farmed), cheese, etc. I don't always have a "meat dish" for dinner.

Last time I cooked for the family it was rice penne, cream sauce (butter, half and half, thickened with cornstarch), Johnsonville italian sausage, asparagus, summer squash, and mushrooms. Another dinner was gluten-free salmon patties on gluten-free buns with lettuce, tomato, and cucumber. One that's a hit with the kids are enchiladas with ground beef and refried beans with gluten-free enchilada sauce I get from the Mexican section of Kroger (it's not marked gluten-free, I read the ingredients). I've also made the enchiladas with eggs instead of beef. For us, the variety comes in the preparation rather than in having different types of meat.
