Gluten Free Hams
0

11 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone!

I couldn't find any information on here that gives a list of gluten free hams. I did see one for turkeys (very helpful!!!). Does anyone know of any hams that are gluten free? My aunt is bringing the ham this year and I want to make it as easy on her as possible and would like to provide her a long list to choose from. Here is what I have so far:

Hillshire Farms - Turkey and Ham both gluten free

Honeybaked Ham - NOT GLUTEN FREE

Hormel Cure 81 - Boneless and Spiral Cut hams are gluten free

Thank you in advance!!

I always get Publix Spiral ham. It's listed as gluten-free on some lists and I can attest to the fact that it does not make me sick. BUT, I usually just have the ham by itself. Combining too many different food items when I'm eating something like ham (that I am not used to eating) wreaks havoc on my system. I have some ham and a little mashed potatoes - or some ham and a little bit of a vegetable.

I like Cooks. I've bought their ham slices as well as their larger hams.

Hams are almost without exception gluten-free as long as they aren't pre-glazed, like the Honeybaked. If there is wheat in the glaze, both the FDA and USDA REQUIRE that it be listed. Just like with turkey, all you need to do is look at the ingredients.

my mom gets the spiral cut hams from Sam's club and throws away the glaze packet and makes her own glaze. I've never gotten sick from it.

Would you mind sharing your mom's recipe?

I think she just uses brown sugar and honey... I'll try to remember to ask her later.

We don't eat ham very often because I can never figure out what to serve with it. Ideas?

"We don't eat ham very often because I can never figure out what to serve with it. Ideas?"

Potato salad is great. Green beans. Cole slaw. Sweet potatos. Salad. Anything that's gluten-free really.

One of the things I've learned about being gluten-free is to eat whatever whenever, as long as it's gluten-free. Got some leftover chicken or tuna salad and no real breakfast in mind? Hey, lots of good protein there. Same with nuts. Spread some hummus or peanut butter on a rice cake.

I know that doesn't have much to do with ham, but once you have diet restrictions, you need to look at everything. A friend of mine who has traveled to the far east for business talks about how they eat ANYTHING for any meal. Noodles, fish, any dinner leftover. This is MY favorite breakfast and lunch.

Chop up leftover ham and add to any egg dish, any bean dish or soup, make ham salad, make casseroles with rice and spinach and swiss cheese, make halushka: finely ribboned cabbage fried with caraway seeds, onions, and paprika and served with ham, bacon, or sausage and noodles (gluten-free of course), grind up the ham and use like ground beef for ham loaf. Cook the bone and any leftover meat on it for soup stock, especially good with beans, carrots, potatoes, and tiny dumplings (beat one egg, add a little salt and gluten-free flour mix until it hold together like a soft dough, then crumble into boiling soup - the Pennsylvania Dutch call these rivvels). I just baked a 12-pound ham (shank half) and I now have a dozen or so little meal-sized packets in the fridge along with a meaty bone for future soup. And at $0.99 a pound it beat the heck out of any of the ham slices at the store.

    • Welcome!   You were smart to think about cross contamination.  Although it is great that there are so many gluten-free options out there, in the beginning it is best to try a whole foods diet, until your son feels a bit better.  The learning curve for the gluten-free diet is steep.  It is better for you to get everything down before letting others feed him.   When I was diagnosed, my hubby had been gluten free for 12 years.  I thought I knew the drill and converted right over to those gluten-free goodies I baked him.  Turned out, like many of us, I had some food inolerances not related to gluten but as a result of gut damage.  So, additives like Xantham gum made me think I was getting glutened, but I was not.  So, again, try to stick to naturally gluten free foods that are less processed for a while.  When you do venture out, I use "find me gluten free" and read the reviews from celiacs (not a person who thinks gluten-free is a way to lose weight! )   Here are some great tips from out Newbie 101 thread:  
    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks
