Thank you for contacting the Butterball Turkey Talk Line by email.
When there are dietary concerns, we advise purchasing Butterball Fresh Turkey and Butterball Fresh Breast of Turkey, which are all-natural and contain no added ingredients. The breast meat of Butterball Frozen Turkeys, including Butterball Frozen Stuffed Turkey, is deep basted with a patented recipe of ingredients to yield a more uniformly juicy and tender turkey after cooking. Individual ingredients (water, salt, sodium phosphate to retain natural juices, modified food starch [corn or potato source], dextrose and natural flavors -- no allergenic ingredients) are specified on the labels of all Butterball Frozen Turkeys and Butterball frozen line extension products. (Although wheat and rye gluten-free, the recipe does include 0.5 ppm corn protein.)
Because Butterball Frozen Stuffed Turkey (and Butterball Stuffed Frozen Breast of Turkey) is stuffed with a traditional bread stuffing, it does contain gluten. The gravy packets that come with some Butterball Turkey products also contain gluten.
If you have further questions regarding gluten in a Butterball product, please call Consumer Affairs (1-800-325-7424). When calling, please have available the UPC number of the product in question.
Don't hesitate to contact us again for additional information or advice. Enjoy the best of all from Butterball!
gluten free since, and avoiding dairy.

Thank you for contacting Honeysuckle White.
Our fresh and frozen whole turkeys are injected with a basting solution
that contains turkey broth (turkey juice and water), salt, sodium
phosphate, sugar and a natural flavoring that is an allergen free, non-dairy
The product is MSG, gluten, soy and dairy/casien free.
I hope this helps.

I've never found a turkey that has gluten unless it was stuffed.

I believe Jenny-o's are also gluten free, but double check on their website . . . they were gluten-free the last time I checked, but it's been a while.

"Shocking News About Meat'' By Laura Sayre --- find it (for now) at:
Anyway, organic meat is not allowed to have sodium phosphate injected in it. Elsewhere I found that sodium phosphate is used in homeophathy. If you know the theory behind homeophathy then you too would be a little leary of sodium phosphate. The homeophathic theory goes something like this: whatever substance causes a certain disease or pathology you take it in minute amounts to conteract that very pathology. It sor tof works that way with medicinal herbs as well-- the healing amounts are usually merely greater. If you overdose on an herb you are taking to fix a certain condition or pathology, it will make that condition worse.
Here is a list of homeopathic pathologies I found associated with sodicum phosphate:
I think there is too much sodium phosphate in injected turkeys to be healthy especially for someone with celiac disease. But in the end I have to conclude that injected turkeys just taste yucky and wrong to me, and that should be a good enough reason not to buy an injected turkey health reasons or not.
Last year Foster Farms turkeys were still injection free. More and more turkeys are turning up injected and I fear the worst. I haven't found a injection free turkey yet, but I haven't checked out this year's batch of Foster Farms. I am heartened by the fact that at one point the big chain grocery stores started injecting all the fresh pork and consumers rebelled. Now fresh pork is once again readily available with out being injected with weird salts.
Good luck Happy Thanksgiving

I just bought a turkey at Safeway and it doesn't list any gluten or wheat but it also does not say gluten free. : (

Not true. I've been gluten-free more than 7 years and BB has been gluten-free that whole time.
