Original Hormel Bacon Glutenfree?
0

5 posts in this topic

Hi to all,

is the original bacon of Hormel Bacon glutenfree? I was trying to find out, but sometimes i miss things, because my english isn't that good all the time. So i thought i could go on their homepage and maybe find something that tells me it's glutenfree. And there is something else i don't understand, found also on their homepage. It's: www.hormel.com .

You go there and then you move with your mouse on the kitchen button. Then click on food knowledge and scroll down and then you will find Food Allergies among the food safety topics.

They write in the first break: "Among adults, the most common allergens are peanuts, tree nuts (e.g., walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds), fish, and shellfish. Among children, allergy to milk, eggs, peanuts, soy, and wheat are more common."

Then they write in the "Fast Facts": "There is no cure for food allergies". This is right, there is no cure for food allergies. Other than not eating the thing which caused the allergy. But, if there's no cure, then... All the children, who are allergic to milk, eggs, peanuts, soy and wheat grow up one day. And then they are adults, right? So the children add up to the adults, who already have that allergy. So how can the allergy be more common among children? Did i miss something? Somehow I don't get it...

And i still didn't find out if their original bacon (not the canadian one) is glutenfree. Maybe someone else can help me here.

Thanks, Stef

The bacon is gluten-free. Hormel has a whole gluten-free list here:

This was under their FAQs, which is where some companies put these things.

I think maybe what happens is that people develop allergies as they grow older even if they didnt have them before so in older populations more people have developed allergies that outnumber those that children have

Another theory is that you cycle through allergies every 7 years or so. I have found this to be the case only in the milder allergies. I have ALWAYS been allergic to cats, but many of my other allergies have come and gone.

When it comes to peanut allergies, the number of children with peanut allergies has doubled in the last five years. The researchers seem to suggest that it is because children are getting peanuts at younger ages now than decades ago. My daughter has a peanut allergy since age 1 1/2. There is a very low chance that she will outgrow this allergy. And even if she does outgrow it, many children who outgrow a peanut allergy have the allergy come back again later in life. So ater my experinece with this allergy, if you have young kids, don't give them peanut containing foods until at least age five.

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
