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.

I have had succes with Great Value brand bacon (Walmart) and Costco sells Canadian back bacon that is gluten-free (Freybe) - that's leaner & more like ham.

I think I was glutened! And the only thing new I ate was Basic Red bacon. The ingredients say it MAY contain sugar, golden yellow sugar, potassium chloride, spices, dextrose and DOES contain pork, water, salt, sodium erythorbate.... it seems to be a bargain brand (darn hubby being cheap lol)... perhaps cc @ manufacturers?

I am sick... again :( Yesterday while my dh was frying up bacon, I was loading the dishwasher. After that I laid down for an hour for a nap. When I woke up I had a lump in my throat that got worse after I ate an omelette with bacon in it. I had total 3 strips of bacon, two in the omelette and one on the side. This afternoon d hit hard, and now I'm sore and nauseous.

The last two times I've eaten bacon I have paid for it. Won't be doing that again, but I would like to figure out what is causing it. I've only had bacon twice in the 4 months I've been gluten-free, but in that time I've also had hot dogs a couple of times (Hebrew National) and sausage and pepperoni on pizza a couple of times without issue. I know there are things in bacon (nitrates? nitrites?) that are also in all of those, but what is in bacon that is not in those that could make me sick??

My bacon is billed as side meat. I'm not quite sure what the difference between the two is, but my butcher has always had high quality meats so I don't *think* it's cheap bacon...

Any ideas?

---------------------------------

OK that's it!! I've been dosed. I though I had been but couldn't figure what did it. And dosed for about 5 days straight with Farmer John's bacon.

I'm going for my colonoscopy finally a week from tomorrow, my driver gets all my bacon. I gave her a big box of food yesterday because I went through my spice shelf. Even the instant mashed potatoes????? had gluten. Hey potatoes--no gluten in them.

On the brighter side, I get my chest freezer tomorrow 14.8 cu feet, energy star. So I can make my own frozen mashed potatoes and just warm them up. So there!

I will go through my fridge freezer and locate all the food with gluten and she gets those too, bags of flour etc.

And I'm getting a/c installed within two weeks so I can cook during the summer on hot days.

Life is good and bad. :unsure:

better now on the diet.

Sure glad these old posts get saved a long time.

You are responding to a 5 year old posting. Looking at Farmer Johns bacon website, it doesn't list malt, Maltodetrin, dextrin, or wheat.

Please note that maltodextrin is not made from barley. In the US & Canada it is usually made from corn. This is a list of safe ingredients:

This is indeed one of the dangers of having so many old posts out there. You have to look at the dates.

It does appear from the Farmer John website that their bacon no longer has gluten. As I remember, it used to contain soy sauce with wheat. In fact, it also appears that the McDonald's bacon no longer contains wheat. So my post from five years ago is wrong.

I now know of NO bacon that has gluten.

And kareng is right, no wheat in maltodextrin unless it is marked as such. A few items from Europe MIGHT have maltodextrin from wheat, but it will be marked.

Richard, that must be a very recent change. I looked at a package in the last 6 months or so and it still had soy sauce.

And I haven't looked at a package since you can't get that brand here, but online it doesn't list soy sauce now.

    • Hawaiian-style BBQ Shrimp (Gluten-Free)
      Mayonnaise is the key to this recipe, which delivers tasty, tangy, golden grilled shrimp. View the full article
    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      I wouldn't be afraid to use a stainless steel pot that other things had been cooked in AS LONG AS YOU WASH THEM VERY WELL before making her food.
    • to biopsy or not?
      You are MOST welcome! No problem with making these recipes. If you just follow the directions they lay out, you will be absolutely fine! BTW, I chose to make everything using the flour blend they give you the recipe for. It really is better than the pre-made flours you can buy. To make things easier, I make a double batch of the flour blend and put it in a BIG tupperware (plastic) container & keep in the fridge. That way when I go to make anything I just scoop out the amount I need. Secondly, get yourself a cheap little kitchen scale. I got this one & it works great. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007TCFE0I?psc=1 Mine doesn't have the removable glass or the kitchen timer but otherwise is just like this one. This one is more like the one I got http://www.amazon.com/Ozeri-Digital-Kitchen-Capacity-Elegant/dp/B002IR6OP8 Weighing out your ingredients makes a huge difference & really it's so much easier than measuring everything in measuring cups. As far as the coffee cake recipe..... I changed it a little bit so it would be like a gluten coffee cake I used to make & we loved. It turns out a little more healthy as well with dried fruit I put in it. I didn't make the topping that they do. These are the changes I made. In the batter, instead of the 1 Tblsp. of cinnamon I used 1 teaspoon. In the batter, I added dried apricots & raisins --- I do it by feel so I will say about 1/2 cup of each maybe a tad more.  My Topping: Then in a separate bowl I put about 1.5 teaspoons of cinnamon, about 3/4 cup of dark brown sugar, and some melted butter. Mix the dry ingredients & pour the butter in mixing the mixture with your fingers. You want the mixture crumbly yet moist. Put the batter in the oven for 5 min. & then take out & crumble the topping on top, then it all goes back in the oven & bake according to directions in the recipe. You could add nuts, dried dates, any dried fruits or nuts you like!   Finally, you owe it to yourself to get some really good pans. This for loaves of bread as gluten free bread requires the extra height & support these pans give. You won't have to use parchment paper or make the tin foil collar which is a pita. http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/bread-loaf-pan-9-x-4-x-4 These are great for making the dinner roll recipe into burger buns: http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/individual-pie-and-burger-bun-pan
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Actually, there is a place I could complain to about how my request to amend my record was handled. zthey really messed up onthis one. I think this doctor was too careless to set a HIPPA policy in place or doesn't pay attention to generic forms included to fill out with new patient forms. I'm debating whether or not to file a complaint. If the doctor adds derogatory remarks to my report, I will definitely file a complaint. I really should file a complaint for all the patients who are mistreated, but I don't need more stress in my life. I have found doctors like her create stress or sometimes it's best to say goodbye without further contact. Can I Appeal if a Covered Entity Refuses to Make an Amendment? Maybe. An institution must accept complaints about its health privacy policies and practices. Filing a complaint with an institution may not be the equivalent of filing an appeal of a denial of a request for amendment, but it may help if it forces someone new at the covered entity to review your request. However, some institutions may accept formal appeals. Consult the institution’s notice of privacy practices to see if there is an appeal method for a denial of a request for amendment. Talk to the privacy officer at the covered entity to see if you can obtain help. You can also complain to the Secretary of the federal Department of Health and Human Services about how your request was handled. The Department’s Office of Civil Rights processes complaints. You can find information about the process at http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/privacy/hipaa/complaints/index.html. You have another alternative. When a covered entity denies your request for amendment, it must tell you that you can request the covered entity to provide a copy of your request for amendment with any subsequent disclosure of the disputed information. In some instances, it may be important to make the request. Remember that the covered entity is not required to tell others about the dispute unless you ask.

      According to Johnny Carino's' gluten free menu, the potato soup is safe to eat. However, their allergen guide says the soup has wheat. Anybody know which is right? I contacted my local restaurant and sent an email to the email address listed on their website. However, my local place did not know, and no one has responded to my emails yet. I would love to try this restaurant, but now I am worried if it is safe.  allergen guide http://pmgdata.s3.amazonaws.com/menu/75327/pdf/allergy_info_guide_7-21-13_8731.pdf   gluten free menu http://glutenfreeguidehq.com/johnny-carinos-gluten-free-menu/

      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.
