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.

    • I haven't seen my gastroenterologist for a few years.  I was diagnosed celiac and have been gluten free for more than 5 years.  I've been having trouble again for the past 6 months or so.  I've done a full elimination diet and have come up with the culprit - eggs!   I did a search of the forum here and have found it's not uncommon for people with celiac to develop a sensitivity to eggs.     I can forego eating eating eggs but It's getting to be flu season.  I was planning on getting my flu shot today, as usual, at work.  The pre-shot questionnaire asks if I have an allergy to eggs.  As, I have never been tested, I don't know if this is really an "allergy".   I asked the nurse about it.  She said that if I do have an allergy to eggs,  it could be dangerous to get the vaccine.   So, I didn't ended up not getting the vaccine.  Anyone else in this boat.   Has anyone actually been tested for egg allergy?   Any advice as it pertains to the flu vaccine?  
    • Thanks for replying. You've been very helpful and given me some ideas of trying a few foods in small amounts. I wish I had rotated food months ago then it might not have got so bad. Thanks again and I wish you well.
    • Until my recent blood test results I've been having cinnamon and mint tea in the mornings, which seemed to have a positive effect calming the digestive system (and tastes good too!)  After the first step of diagnosis with high Iga TTg I took at look at the cinnamon sticks I make the tea with and it says "packed in a factory that may contain wheat, corn etc. etc." so that I guess would sound alarm bells for many I reckon. That said I'd imagine the way most of these herbs and spices are harvested isn't exactly gluten-free friendly yet I've seen quite a few recipes using it. How are people getting around this as I can't see any specific gluten-free certified cinnamon products out there? Really could do with my tea back P.S. I also have chamomile tea using the raw flowers which may have a similar background but seem to be less of a risk somehow?
    • If I do have to go back on gluten for a bit it'll at least be a temporary relief from the withdrawal symptoms (or at least what I hope are just withdrawal symptoms). Today's returning malady is acid reflux, something I'd thought I'd seen the back of recently. Really need that to calm down as PPIs the doctor gave before were evil medication and caused 10x more problems, possibly the worst I've ever felt whilst on those so won't be going back there! Although the scales seem to have stabilised in terms of weight loss in myself I feel like I'm wasting away at present, what with the random pulling sensations in muscles and tender head area I'm just scared for what other illnesses may be laying in wait related to the celiac genes  Think I'll head back for the ESR and CRP blood tests next week as the shoulder and temple pains are really worrying me right now, could just be the gluten intolerance but the other options are terrifying if not caught early. So much uncertainty, apart from the fact that none of this ever gets fully better (if at all)...
    • You're welcome! Good luck! And if you get nowhere there, remember, the higher you go, the nicer they get. Skip straight up to the top brass.
