Frank's Hot Sauces

21 posts in this topic

Has anyone had any reactions from Frank's Hot Sauces? Their website says which products are gluten-free:

Q: Are FRANK'S® RedHot® sauce products gluten free?

A: Yes, FRANK'S® RedHot® Original, XTRA Hot, Buffalo Wing Sauce and Chile 'n Lime™ are gluten free.

However, I have reacted to products that are gluten-free in the past because of cross contamination.

Hi Carrie,

I also have reacted to "gluten-free" things, and have never had an issue with Frank's Hot Sauce. I've only had the original and Chile/Lime varieties.

Thanks :) Do you know if they are a ConAgra product?

Hi (again),

I know that President's Choice makes one that my dad likes. I think it's just "Hot Sauce". It comes in a little bottle.

They are the same company as French's mustard, which I don't think is ConAgra. That's all I know!

Dan T's sauces and Mr. Spice are also fine.

Frank's seems to be perfectly safe. Great for buffalo wings. I'm not telling you to pick up a hot sauce and use it without checking, but most hot sauces are safe.

Thanks. Actually, I was hoping to use Franks (or another hot sauce) for buffalo wings. I have been craving them lately. Probably doesn't help that people keep eating wings around me though ;)

I think Franks is owned by French's now, it was owned by Durkee for awhile too. Its been owned by itself a few times too.

I've called and Franks is gluten-free. This was a big concern to me originally, as I generally bought Franks by the gallon. I still do, but a gallon now lasts me more than a month. I used to throw big hot wing party's. Not big really, but, about 10 of us would "very heathily" eat 20 lbs of wings, with Franks, plus added hotter sauce to make it hotter, as Franks has great flavor, but could use a boost to heat. Its a perfect base sauce for mixes. Ah.. I miss those days, "butter + Franks + A$$ in Space + Dave's Total Insanity Sauce" == tasty....

It does kind of hurt the next morning...

I did not remember reading how the wings you are referring to are prepared. If they are being fried, have you checked to make sure there is no cross-contamination with other products being fried in the oil? Or the oil itself? Another issue could be using frozen chicken wings as some have gluten containing broths injected into them.

Just thought you may have overlooked this so I thought it might be worth looking into. I have never heard of Frank's having gluten in it, that's why.

If your making your own wings, I recommend grilling them. I think they generally turn out better, and less messy. I buy frozen ones I know don't have any gluten based broths. Or pick them up from my local butcher who knows me.

Throw them raw onto the grill and cook them to almost done. Throw them in a pot with melted butter and franks. Let them soak for a few minutes. Put them on the grill until the sauce is about dry. Low long heat.

Just make sure your grill is clean too. I remeber I used to toast big loaves of french bread on the grill.

If its at a restaraunt, I'd skip it altogether. Other, than of course a completely gluten free restarunt.

Grilling is probably healthier too :) Do you use a BBQ or a grill inside?

You definitely do not want to use a charcoal or gas grill inside. Carbon monoxide and you might burn the place down. You can grill them inside the over, which is what I often do. It takes longer but it's healthier.

"If its at a restaraunt, I'd skip it altogether. Other, than of course a completely gluten free restarunt."

For me it depends. Buffalo Wild Wings fries its "naked" wings in their own fryer and puts the sauce on after. Last time I checked all but two sauces were gluten-free (both of those had Asian type names, which as you might guess, meant soy sauce was an ingredient).

When I make wings I spread them out on a jelly roll type cookie sheet and bake them in the oven. It can get a little smokey if you're not vigilant, but it's definately less messy than frying them and having to clean the whole kitchen when you're done! I want some now!

I'll have to try that! How long do they take in the oven?

I put my wings in at around 400 for 40-45 minutes, but I also keep an eye on them.

If they 're frozen about 40-45 mins, "fresh" 30-40 mins at 400F, but keep an eye on them!

I've always just grilled mine, i.e. outside on a B.B.Q.(or grill depending on where you are in the US)

I'm for it even if its cold(very). In college, a friend of mine took a picture of me standing outside grilling the wings, with a beer in hand(not gluten-free...), and next to me was a thermometer that read something liek - 28 F (that negative)

That batch was my typical base mix I like to start with.

1 16 oz bottel Franks Hot Sauce

1 12 oz bottle Crystal Hot Sauce (getting hard to find, I but it when out in California bay area now)

1 7 oz bottle of Pico-Pica (usually with taco sauces)

1/4 pound stick of un-salted butter.

1. Put wings on grill start grilling.

2. Put butter in man, melt till all melted.

3. Add all sauces.

You can double the qunatity. The above makes for a good 4 lbs of wings double dunked.

Wait ti the wings are about 80 percent cooked. Depending on your pan size, rotate the par-cooked wings through the sauce. Let them all sit in the sauce for at least 30 seconds.

take them all out, put on grill, low heat, close cover.

Low heat is key at this point, we just want to dry the sauce into the wings. But not burn the wings. Careful watch as the wings like to cause flair ups. Burned wings are no good.

Then I like to double dunk, i.e repeat the exact above procedure, where you take them out and let them soak for 60 seconds.

By this time, most of the sauce is gone. All on the wings, cooked in a bit.

I used to do the above for parties, but have massive amounts of more everything. The base sauce pan would be the same(added those 3 main sauces as I went). But, each consecutive batch, I'd mix in some of the stronger habenaro sauces. People get used to the initial heat, and then don't notice its getting a lot hotter.

Good fun

Thank you. Those sound tasty :) And you really seem to know how to cook them. I probably would have burned them, but now I will be more careful. I may cook mine in the oven (since I don't have a BBQ).

I've never heard of Pico-Pica. Is it a salsa?

    • What Are Your Brands & Flavors Of Gluten Free Ice Cream ?
      I don't worry about the same facility, but I check if it is on the same lines. I think it is usually a good idea to find out if things are made on shared lines. And if they are made on the same line as gluten-containing products how good is the cleaning in between? Chocolate is a good example of this. For example, I contacted a company whose chocolate I used to eat before being diagnosed and they outright told me they are not good about cleaning on shared lines and it is not safe for allergies or celiac. I have had this response from other companies as well (especially when it comes to chocolate sadly). I think this is why Godiva is not safe. Its just a good idea to check.
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      Wow you all have more balls than I do. I've been gluten free since 2007 and I'm still afraid of offending people. It gives me lots of troubles, really. I'm more like rockstarkate I guess...the "people pleasing" aspect.  I love how you all just have the flat out rule I Will Not Eat It Unless I or a Celiac Made it. (Or a trusted family member).  I still simper and grovel and cringe and apologetically turn things away.  People still put dishes in my face and say "This should be gluten free..."  and I have to awkwardly not eat it and then seem rude.  I've done the whole...checking the bottles thing too.  I do try to dart out of things more though now. I volunteered in other countries in recent years and I felt as vulnerable as all heck, having to rely on them to make food, as well as definitely feeling like I offended people who didn't get it at all. I was feeling brave when I signed up for those but after the second time I was like okay, the fear/anxiety/stress about the food is too much. I managed to dodge out of getting sick, and for the most part people humored me...but it was pretty difficult because I don't like offending people, especially other cultures, with them trying to be nice and make food for me...pretty sure I did offend people as well as annoy many others.  Anyway...no OP, you are not alone. For sure I have trust issues eating other people's food. They say they know but I do truly doubt they are as strict as I would be.   A few times I will still brave eating something...like some little mozzarella balls with vinegar...though, I did still look at the labels.  Someone had to give me a persuasive speech and show me all ingredients (just salt and pepper) after making me chicken wings once. I do tell people, basically, NOT to make me stuff. But they still do.  Another time a friend had worked really hard and was having a terrible time and offered me a burger patty when I arrived, assuring me it was gluten free. I knew I hadn't been there to watch whether she used the "bun spatula" on it or not...but I just didn't feel like giving her a fight about it since she was having a rough time and hosts like to feel they are feeding guests, blah blah. So I ate it. And got glutened. And wailed and gnashed my teeth haha. Lesson learned.  I need to stick to my guns more. I just always feel like I'm being too "difficult" as it is. But...sigh.  It is refreshing for me to read these empowered no BS responses though. You all remind me of where I'm coming from, and not that I'm just being some kind of high maintenance, rude, crazy person. You'd think after, what, nine years now, I wouldn't still be bothered by it...
    • Mashed potato soup during healing
      I was on pretty much a liquid diet for 8 months waiting for my nausea to go away completely. I mostly had mashed potato soup, 1/2 fat ice cream (mostly whey, not milk), chocolate drink (no added milk) and gummy vitamins. The soup tasted yummy and I'm still alive so I figured I'd share it for people not feeling well in the beginning. I've been noticing people with alot of trouble keeping food down in recent posts. I couldn't have milk or eggs, but the cheese in the recipe didn't bother me at all. Notice the lack of spices. Makes it easy on the stomach.   Mashed potato soup: Boiled yukon gold potatoes (5lb bag) 1 package cauliflower, steamed 4-6 slices of Land O'Lakes white American cheese 4 tablespoons butter salt 16 cups homemade chicken broth, salted   Chop steamed cauliflower into teensy bits (pureed is better). Put in mixer with butter, cheese and a potato or two. Blend while slowly adding potatoes. Keep whipping for a few minutes to insure the cauliflower and potatoes are not lumpy at all. Salt to taste.   Combine 1/2 cup mashed potatoes to 1 cup salted chicken broth. Mix with spoon until mashed potatoes have completely dissolved. Enjoy. Individual servings can be frozen.   Homemade chicken broth: makes 8 - 10 cups of broth   1 organic chicken (regular chickens are too big) 1 stalk celery 1 carrot 1 large bay leaf 1/2 package fresh thyme from the  herb section of the vegetables area   Put all ingredients in pressure cooker along with 1.5 liters water. Bring to pressure. Cook for 35 minutes. Separate broth from solids. Separate broth from fat. Add ridiculous quantities of salt until it tastes like soup. Sorry I use a salt grinder so I don't have precise salt quantities.    
    • I have kidney stones...spent last night at the ER
      Hey ArtG, I saw the urologist today...unfortunately for me they can still see my stones on an xray.  Sigh.  The largest is 3x6 in my right kidney.  He does not believe I can pass this one on my own.   All of my bloodwork came back fine.  Nothing alarming in the urinalysis either. His recommendations...keep drinking tons of water.  I had 4.2 liters of urine output when I tested.  Add in a fish oil supplement.  Decrease sodium intake.  Limit meat to 10 ounces per day.  Increase dietary calcium.   Work at lowering oxalate consumption...my urinary oxalate was 45.  They want it between 20 and 40.  But he gets people that are over 100 so mine is not all that high. 3 options...1. watch and wait.  Recheck in a few months to see if there is stone growth.  2. Shock wave lithotripsy.  3. Let it come out when it decides to and see what happens. I just don't know.  I hate the idea of being put under as they would do for the shock wave thing.  I've had too many surgeries already.  It scares me to be honest.  I also don't want to deal with another episode.   I don't know what I'll do.  We've got a vacation planned at the end of the month and I just want to go and enjoy that.  Not worry about kidney stones. I'm sorry to hear about your upcoming surgery...it really is always something!
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I know what food products are. Probiotics was a recent example I saw on the news about things labeled gluten free that were not gluten free. So, supplement labels in addition to food labels.

      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!
