Hillshire Farms

20 posts in this topic

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.

Annette

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.

I contacted Hillshire Farms and today got this response to whether their products are gluten free:

 

Thank you for your question regarding gluten-free products. Hillshire Brands complies with the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act with regard to all labeling.

At this time we only have limited products certified and stamped on the label as gluten free: some of our Sara Lee Deli meats, Jimmy Dean sausages, and our Aidells sausage products. We do not promote or certify that any of our other products are gluten free currently, as we do not test for gluten.

However, due to the demand, we are in the process of making gluten free products, once they officially come out onto the market we will contact you directly to let you know. I hope this helps!

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Hi Elle......do you think you would have better luck obtaining a full Celiac panel from your GP or a gastro doc?  You really need to be tested for Celiac because of all your symptoms.  Many other people probably thought they were dying of some horrible disease because they had so many symptoms that docs ignored.  Very common problem for us.  Plus, your Mom has had "IBS" all her life.  I should add that IBS is not a diagnosis.  No one needs to be told their bowel is irritated......they already know that.  This is where the medical establishment, no matter where you live in this world, fail us.  They need to find the root cause and there always is one.  You also do not need to have any gastro issues to be a Celiac but you do have some, along with all your symptoms mentioned.  Anxiety is a huge problem with Celiac Disease and for many, it goes away just fine on the gluten-free diet, without need of meds...which should always be a last resort measure.  I have never had an anxiety problem in my entire life until after I was diagnosed with Celiac.  I may have had it but with all the other numerous symptoms I had, the anxiety may have gotten buried somewhere.  But guess what? On the extremely rare occasion when I am glutened or cc'd, I get major anxiety for about 4 days and then its gone. B12 is a water soluble vitamin so whatever you don't use, it exits the body in your urine.  It is pretty damn hard to overdose on the stuff.  I take a B vitamin everyday, very high quality ones and my B12 is usually in the high 600 range.  Optimally, it should be between 650-800 so yours was abysmal pre-supplementation.  Absorption can also be affected by PPI's.  You did notice improvement with the tingling sensation and fatigue once your levels were way up so take notice of that. My biggest advice is to get your mother and you tested for celiac, with a FULL PANEL. Then you'll have to wait and see what that shows. You could always trial a gluten-free diet if all testing is complete and the results were either negative or inconclusive. That sometimes happens with people, especially if they have Celiac's other cousin......non-celiac gluten intolerance.  This would be the best route to go with regards to your anxiety, unless it becomes disabling and you need meds, short term. Make sure you tell them that anxiety is a HUGE symptom of Celiac and it is not normal for younger people to have extreme anxiety like that, for no reason. Good luck to you and please call and make the appointment. I understand your fear....I hate doctors and it's pure mistrust. But sometimes you have to address a problem head on.    
    • newbie diagnosed mom - testing 8 yr old now
      good to know. I am not going for a biopsy. I do not have health insurance, i know i know please no political comments. My children do. My husband and I don't right now. If we lived in another state, we would have coverage. I just made an appt to do a full blood panel for my daughter this week. I would rather find some confirmation for her through a blood test, i feel a scope is too invasive for a child.

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Well, if I were you, I would go see your doctor and talk to him/her about all this.  Tell your doctor about your anxiety. When I finally did, my doctor prescribed a low dose of an anti-anxiety med and it has made a world of difference in my life.   About the whole thing with the B12 and the weird symptoms . Keep taking the B12 in the meantime to see if that helps again. But talk about it anyway.  If you want a celiac test, ask for the panel to be done. Your doctor may or may not want to send you to a GI for that. Remind him your mom is being tested. You do not have to wait for her results.  Work with your doctor if possible and if not, maybe find a doctor you can work with. If all you end up needing is b12, that's a good thing. If you end up needing more help, starting with your doctor and a heart to heart Talk will have you going in the right direction.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
