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.

    • Enjoy Life/ Perky's Cereal
      I am super bummed. I just went to order my breakfast staple for the last 10 years from Amazon  - my case of Enjoy Life's Crunchy Rice - over the last number of years it has gone though name and packaging changes but it has always been there for me for breakfast There is no more in stock at  Amazon so I contacted the company and found out that they are no longer going to be making any cereals. No Crunchy Rice or Crunchy Flax .  Super sad.  I need to find a replacement and i am very picky. I am looking for a simple cereal not sweet and not mushy in milk. I am not able to eat corn so it can not contain corn.  Any ideas for me? Michele

    • Starting out
      Hi, as a Noob, I am a little intimidated by what may come to be a major change in my eating habits. My middle has been uncomfortable for a couple of years and I got no help or input from my GP so I went to a GI Dr who checked me throughly and found nothing out of sorts other than some minor irritation in my esophogus and prescribed a medication. My stomach/mid section still is uncomfortable and really disturbingly big. The GP finally suggested that I try being gluten free for 6 weeks to see if it made a difference. I have no other symptoms of gluten intolerance, as far I know. I've had anxiety issues longer than the stomach discomfort but I am having depression and lethargy so I guess I will try to rule this out. My question is, how strict does this have to be in order to ascertain that there is a correlation between my discomfort and possible gluten allergy? How stringent is the cross contamination issue, like using a toaster oven and other daily food prep precautions. Right now, eating like this for 6 weeks feels like 6 years. But if I start to feel better in a few weeks, I guess I'll make the transistion permanently, and I'd really like my gut to be normal looking, or at least not 7 months pregnant.  Female, nearly 70, 5'8", overweight at 170 lbs.  Thanks.

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
