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.

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.
