Is there any gluten-free bacon that is lean? I am trying to get more protien in my diet and am looking for something quick to add in the morning. I have always had trouble with grease and dont know how greasy regular bacon is because I havent had bacon in a long time-

thanks

Check out the bacons made by Kraft Foods. They will clearly list gluten on the label if it contains any.

I like Hormel's "Thick Cut" Bacon -- it costs more, but it is very good bacon.

I buy mine from Market Day - which is kind of like a Gordon Food Service or Shwans, but also is a fundraisor too. Check it out at marketday.com One of the things I love about Market Day is each item has a little no wheat symbol right on it!!!

The bacon is very good, and is pre-cooked... it literally takes seconds in the microwave and is not as greasy as pan-fried.

I like Applegate Farms. It's organic and nitrite-free and gluten-free too! It might be too much grease though...

So everything by Oscar Meyer that does not say specifically on the label made with wheat or gluten; then it is safe? A lot of their lunchmeat I thought contained gluten but I never saw it on the package.

That's right, since Oscar Mayer is a Kraft Company. Kraft's policy is that they will clearly list any gluten ingredients. I love their stuff--Oscar Mayer Center Cut Bacon is my favorite. I cook it in the microwave between paper towels and there is virtually no grease left!

Oh no! I read somewhere that bacon was OK to eat - wheat free. That might explain why I've been having some trouble.

I don't know what brand the bacon is at my cafeteria at work. So...there really is a chance of finding gluten in bacon??

The noly bacons I've ever seen that have gluten are Farmer John's (??) and the bacon at McDonalds, which isn't a real bacon anyway.

Cheaper bacons have been known t use soy sauce as a sodium additive.

However, having said that, the only one I have definitively seen as having gluten are Farmer Johns, some Turkey Bacon and McDonalds Bacon

Boar's Head bacon actually says gluten-free on the package! Tasty, too. I stock up when it's on sale. If you gotta have protein, might as well make it taste good. A Chinese co-worker once told me that when she first came to the US she asked her father (who had come earlier) what she should eat, and he said, "Bacon! It's delicious!" I wholeheartedly agree. :P

What about Basic Red bacon (Canada)? Anyone know? My hubby bought it without reading the label and it says *may contain spices and I can't find a website!

In her book, Shelley Case states that spices are safe in Canada and the US. I don't worry about them. Seasonings are a whole nuther ball game, though.

Be careful of the information in this thread, since it is over three years old, and some things may have changed. Kraft's labeling policy hasn't.
