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.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
