I have been craving a hot dog, but when I say hot dog, I mean a veggie dog. All the smart dogs have gluten and I have looked at every package I have seen in every health food store and I can't find one that is gluten-free. Does anyone know if a gluten-free veggie dog?

I just want to smother something non-meat in cheese and spicy mustard. If there are no gluten-free veggie dogs, anyone have an alternative?

Tofu Pups are gluten free. I believe there are some other people here that eat these. My son eats them, but I don't care so much for them. They aren't bad, but not what I was used to.

I looked these up and they are made by lightlife that makes all the smart dogs which aren't gluten-free. Do you know if these are produced in a gluten-free facility? I emailed the company but I don't know how long it will take them to get back to me.

Thanks!

I did try and get a hold of them, but didn't ever get an answer back. It says that there is Soy in them under the allergen list. All other products they make list Wheat too. At least that I have noticed. Actually now I remember reading on their website what products someone could eat that were gluten free and this one was listed. I agree though, that there could be a very good chance of CC, if they are made on the same line or near the other products with wheat in them.

They actually wrote back to me very quickly. Here is what they said:

We have complete wash-downs between batches, however, due to fact that
cross contamination however unlikely, may occur either at our facility,
or at one of our suppliers, we cannot absolutely guarantee the absence
of minute traces of gluten containing ingredients in any of our
products. Although no gluten is used in the Tofu Pups, we do use
gluten-containing ingredients extensively in our facility.


So, even though I really want a hot dog, I think I'm going to have to pass. Getting glutened on top of morning sickness would send me over the edge! Thanks for your info.
