Hot Dogs That Are Gluten Free
0

24 posts in this topic

I was told by the company that our old favorite local hot dogs were gluten free when I called. They lied :angry: I was severely ill from it. It was koegel's beef frankfurters for anyone here in case they arent aware. The person I talked was acting like a jerk but I dismissed it for hopefully some helpful information but I had a horrible reaction from it.

What kind of hot dogs do you use? Im hoping there are some. I did a search and couldnt find a thing. We are a hot dog loving family, I know not healthy but my dh and daughter love them.

Thanks

Boar's Head Hot dogs are gluten-free and they label them as such!

Applegate Farms hot dogs are also gluten-free (I get these at either Whole Foods or my local Health Food Store)

Hebrew National -- all the way!

They just taste better than the other hot dogs (and no fillers) --

I think the Applegate Farms Hot Dogs taste weird and they cost like $7 a pack!

Thanks everyone :)

The bbq went great. Also I was looking at the store and bought the oscar mayer kind because of dh's request. They have no fillers also listed on the package. They were good also.

I realize this is a 4 year old thread, but it is the only one that I find under the name "Koegel".

I was looking for information on Koegel's Viennas, which used to be an essential summer food for my boys. Here are the emails I've sent and received from the company.

Mr. Koegel,

Thank you for the quick response.

I'm aware that gluten can be in some flavorings and spices, and also

that a product can be contaminated with gluten if the same machinery is

used to make a different product that contains gluten, even if the

machinery is cleaned.

It is very important that my son and I never eat anything with even a

trace of gluten because it makes us very ill. Koegel's Viennas are my

son's favorite food and I would like to continue buying them for him.

Dear Ms. P:

You're welcome and I understand. There should be no problem eating our

Viennas. There is no gluten in the flavorings or spices and they are

produced on clean equipment.

Again, thank you for wanting to continue to eat our product.

Sincerely,

John C. Koegel

I really think that it's too risky to eat these for us, since this company is not huge I suspect they make things that contain gluten in the same lines that make the frankfurters and Viennas. I was going to email him back and say that there is a difference between "clean" and no possible contamination issues, but decided to just go try to find Hebrew National hot dogs. I hope my boys like them as much as they like Viennas!

Unless anyone here has any updated information, that is! I still have not broken the news about Viennas not being safe and am just dreading it.

I just (like five minutes ago) ate Boars Head Natural Casing Beef Franks with Boars Head Vidalia Onions and French's Yellow Mustard on Udi's Bread. The bread fell apart when I bent it into a Hot Dog bun shape BUT just the taste of the franks, onions and mustard was enough to make me VERY Happy. Boar's Head Sauerkraut is also gluten-free (I believe - I'm new to this) so you could do that too.

By the way does anyone know WHEN exactly Udi's Hot Dog buns are coming out and also on the Udi's bread. It was defrosted when I got it, can I re-freeze it now? Thanks!!

I believe Viennas are what is served at Target. They are in fact gluten-free. Actually any and all hot dogs I have seen these days are gluten-free. The one I know of that did used to contain wheat no longer does. Can't remember the name of it now.

I rarely buy them but when I do they are usually uncured beef. Can't remember the brand.

Why don't they get rid of these old, unusable threads? There's a lot of information on these boards that is totally out of date and just plain incorrect regarding the gluten status of some foods.

Oh, I hope hope hope the Viennas you're talking about are Koegel! I believe the brand is only in the Michigan area. Is this the brand you're talking about? Koegel's Viennas are indeed safe? This would be SUCH good news to a gal who desperately NEEDS good news this week. I've already had three bread baking failures, but that's a whole 'nuther discussion. B)

I think the "older" threads here are invaluable. It is a treasure trove for those of us just starting out. I was able to see that date and knew the thread was old.

Originally, I saw that someone had eaten Koegel's beef franks and got sick. So the seed of doubt was sewn in my mind as to the safety of Viennas - since it's a small company and they probably make everything in the same pot, so to speak. Since no one here in my house gets falling-down-on-the-floor sick from eating gluten foods, there is no way for me to know for sure if they are safe or not by just eating them. So, when the company guy says they are safe but doesn't seem to display a good knowledge of what constitutes safe, I would rather just avoid the food rather than risk going backwards with this. That was why I posted here on this thread, to see if anyone had any updated information.

Thumann's hot dogs are my absolute favorite and they are certified gluten free by the GFCO (check for the logo). It is rare that I eat something like a hot dog, but now that summer is upon us and there are bbq's popping up all over the place... well, sometimes it's ok to treat yourself :)

      I am glad you are feeling so much better!  Your posting will encourage others.  Thank you!
    • Last posted 2013 - Improving health
      When I first started this journey, roughly 11 yrs ago with symptoms, I had no clue. Eventually, having no luck with doctors (hypochondriac or psychosomatic), I googled my symptoms over and over looking for something... ANYTHING... that would give me a clue. Among other issues, my insides would not move, I was turning gray, felt like death, and had a persistent cough. I can't remember who but someone had posted on the forum and I found some of my symptoms. Eureka, I immediately began a gluten-free diet to see if it made any difference. Of course that was a journey, not realizing what products contained gluten. Long story shorter – first I went gluten-free, symptoms began to reappear, then it was soy (first organic was okay, then not), symptoms reappeared, took out corn, symptoms reappeared, then it was all grains. So the last couple of years I have been grain-free plus no sulphates. Actually, truth be told, my Celiac pharmacist gave me the recipe for health. I asked her if she liked a certain product. She answered, “I don't know, I have never tried it.” I asked her what she did use. She replied, “Nothing out of a box, a bag, or a bottle.” And that has pretty much been my life for the last couple of years. There is the odd product I try but it always has an after effect and I have to way the consequences against the enjoyment of it. I am one of those who react to 1 crumb in the butter, flour dust in the air, sulphates in anything, sometimes things that don't even seem like they would be a problem, like avocados and blueberries when I am contaminated. January 2016 I began this recitation. It is now May 5th, 2016 - Here I am 4 months later and I feel like screaming to anyone who will listen, “Things are improving!! My gut is healing!!” So what happened?? Someone suggested digestive enzymes. My insides were so compromised that I couldn't eat much besides fruit, veggies, and meat; all plain, all without being touched by people other than me. I could barely stand salt at times when I was compromised. Haven't been to a restaurant in years since I am not in a city that would have one to cater or understand this much of a problem. I started digestive enzymes but I read the label wrong and started with 5 first thing in the morning. Whatever... I began to notice improvements in what I could eat. Not anything different but just that I could eat without feeling ill or having my gut shut down. I stayed on those for a month and a half.. then I picked up a parasite from someone living in a very unclean apartment and visiting there and helping to clean. Well, that was a huge battle. I had to eat to discourage parasites. But in the process my insides began to heal dramatically. I was eating blackberries, drinking garlic keefir (which I couldn't have done 5 mths ago and gave me the first clue my insides had improved substantially), drinking oil of oregano or peppermint oil drops in a glasses of water, eating cabbage and green roughage. Drinking water with apple cider vinegar in it and Aloe Vera juice. After a couple of weeks my insides were a whole different story. I had a feeling of wellness that I hadn't had for years! I FELT like trying to eat something different. So I decided to try Gluten-free Rice Chex. Haven't had them in years.... and I am so happy! I can eat them!! (Not to say they are healthy, cause they are processed crap) but I didn't get sick and that was the amazing part. So now I am beginning to try a few things that would have set me back previously, I have made my own crème brulee because I have always been able to eat eggs. But the sugar was causing problems, but now it's okay. The issue I have now is that I want to try things too fast so I am having to exercise restraint. So here is it – parasites are very common, everyone has them however whether they cause problems depends on your immune system. Does it not makes sense that they would cause leaky gut? An over abundance in the gut would destroy gut tissue and take nutrients from a person and possibly put holes in the gut leading to food reactions? Digestive enzymes help to destroy the protective coating around parasites. Foods that discourage them or kill them are blackberries, garlic, cabbage, oil of oregano, peppermint oil, aloe vera juice, Braggs apple cider vinegar and more (google to find). I found medication didn't do anything so I turned to all the other. So this is how it is today. I don't suggest it is the answer to anyone else's problems but when I found this site, hidden in the posts was the beginning of the answers for me.  I may still be gluten, soy, corn intolerant but I am feeling so good now and I just thought I would tell someone.  I just wanted to share. Thanks for reading.
    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      Not to mention my hips and knees are killing me and I have really bad calf pains and horrible bloating after just 3 days of glutening. I don't think I could live like this for a whole week.
    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      I saw my gi today and he said to not worry about eating gluten. I have abdominal pain in the small intestine area and referred pain in my back, indicating pretty bad damage. So I'll just go without the gluten and do the genetic testing if needed.
    • Vagus Nerve Attack
      Hello All: I came across this series of posts from as Google search on "Wheat Vagus Nerve". I find all of your replies very interesting and would like to add mine for those searching for information but with differing symptoms. I have struggled with the vagus nerve impact to breathing as Maria mentioned in the original post, but only an impact to breathing and nothing else.  But my symptoms were brought on not only by wheat, but also by other ingredients such as dark chocolate, probiotics, caprylic acid, mustard, fluoride in toothpaste/mouthwash just to name a few.  I found when I sat down my breathing would return to normal, but as soon I got up, the impact would return. The impact to breathing would come 4-6 hours after ingestion and last for about the same amount of time.  At times I could not even take ten steps without having to stop, not being able to breath even moderately.  The symptoms now are decreasing in severity but not in duration. My doctor checked my blood for celiac and results were negative. A number of chest x-rays to rule out COPD.  I am waiting on an appoint with an allergy specialist in a few weeks to see what they have to say.  Needless to say, it is difficult to maintain a healthy weight. Thanks for your posts, and I hope my contribution is of benefit to others also.

      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.
