Cold Cuts/lunch Meat

Hey Everyone! Perviously the dietician at my college told me that most of the lunch meat they serve is gluten free however, I was talking to my aunt who eats gluten free and she told me that only a few brands have gluten free cold cuts. Is this true? Does anyone know of safe brands of lunch meat?

All of Boar's Head meats and cheeses are gluten free and the best that I have had, as well as Hillshire Farms. I believe Oscar Meyer is, but I don't buy it.

Thanks for responding. I thought Boar's Head was gluten free but I wasn't sure. Has anyone heard about the brand Berk's or the Perdue Turkey? Those are the brands my college has and the dietician said that I can eat the smoked and roasted turkey, the ham, and the swiss and provelone cheese. Sometimes I don't think she knows what shes talking about though.

I would suggest that you e-mail www.Perdue.com and they will most likely have a "contact us" that you can click and request a list of their gluten free products. Most large companies will get back to you fairly quickly. I am assuming that you are in the US and most likely on Christmas break. That may be a good time to write some companies to get a portforlio of their safe products.

But please remember, often companies change their ingredience to "improve" <_< their products. So their list will be only good for a period of time before you need to re-check.

Good luck at school and if we can help further, always feel free to ask.

Don't forget that when you order your cold cuts, ask that they clean the slicers to avoid cross contamination.

Hormel has an "all natural" line and right on the package it says gluten free.

I eat a lot of cold cuts. I believe about 99% of Boar's Head are gluten-free (they have info on their website), but I don't eat deli counter stuff because of CC concerns. Oscar Meyer makes a pretty good "deli-style" variety that will label any allergens - so far I have yet to find any. Also Sara Lee and Hillshire Farms will label, and the Hormel Naturals are a good option too. Carl Budding is also gluten-free, but kind of nasty in my opinion. Basically, most packaged meats are gluten-free, you just need to check each particular companies policy and carefully read ingredients. In my mind, the slight improvement in quality by getting fresh-sliced at the deli counter is not worth the contamination risk.

Has anyone tried the pre-packaged cold cuts? They seem to be packaged by the manufacturer (Hillshire Farms, Oscar Mayer etc) and are in re-usable plastic containers and are kept near the hot dogs in the store I go to. They are good to keep in the house because the "Use by" date is normally a few months out. Anyway, since I always get such a hard time from the store about cleaning the slicer, I have been buying these. I am assuming that they are sliced at the manufacturer with all the same meats and maybe won't have CC issues. Does anyone else use them successfully??

I never buy cold cuts from the Deli. I always buy the pre-packaged stuff.

If the deli people are busy, they don't always clean the slicer to my satisfaction, so I just never order food there.

I purchase Hormel, Hillshire Farms, Hebrew National, Kroger, Oscar Meyer Bolgna and Carl Buddig deli meats.

Im sorry, I only had time to scan the posts on here, im not sure if someone already answered this question...but are there any ORGANIC turkey lunchmeats that are gluten free out there? I had been eating Diesel turkey lunch meat and reacting horribly to it, even though it didn't have gluten on the ingredients list. So F.Y.I. everyone- watch out for that one!

I believe Applegate Farms is organic.

Also-peace-if you are recently gluten free, your body is probably still healing. You may be reacting to "safe" foods because your body is still damaged by Celiac and it just isn't working right yet. For many people it takes months. So, just because you are potentially reacting to something now doesn't mean that it is necessarily gluten. Just wanted to throw that out there.

    • What Are Your Brands & Flavors Of Gluten Free Ice Cream ?
      I don't worry about the same facility, but I check if it is on the same lines. I think it is usually a good idea to find out if things are made on shared lines. And if they are made on the same line as gluten-containing products how good is the cleaning in between? Chocolate is a good example of this. For example, I contacted a company whose chocolate I used to eat before being diagnosed and they outright told me they are not good about cleaning on shared lines and it is not safe for allergies or celiac. I have had this response from other companies as well (especially when it comes to chocolate sadly). I think this is why Godiva is not safe. Its just a good idea to check.
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      Wow you all have more balls than I do. I've been gluten free since 2007 and I'm still afraid of offending people. It gives me lots of troubles, really. I'm more like rockstarkate I guess...the "people pleasing" aspect.  I love how you all just have the flat out rule I Will Not Eat It Unless I or a Celiac Made it. (Or a trusted family member).  I still simper and grovel and cringe and apologetically turn things away.  People still put dishes in my face and say "This should be gluten free..."  and I have to awkwardly not eat it and then seem rude.  I've done the whole...checking the bottles thing too.  I do try to dart out of things more though now. I volunteered in other countries in recent years and I felt as vulnerable as all heck, having to rely on them to make food, as well as definitely feeling like I offended people who didn't get it at all. I was feeling brave when I signed up for those but after the second time I was like okay, the fear/anxiety/stress about the food is too much. I managed to dodge out of getting sick, and for the most part people humored me...but it was pretty difficult because I don't like offending people, especially other cultures, with them trying to be nice and make food for me...pretty sure I did offend people as well as annoy many others.  Anyway...no OP, you are not alone. For sure I have trust issues eating other people's food. They say they know but I do truly doubt they are as strict as I would be.   A few times I will still brave eating something...like some little mozzarella balls with vinegar...though, I did still look at the labels.  Someone had to give me a persuasive speech and show me all ingredients (just salt and pepper) after making me chicken wings once. I do tell people, basically, NOT to make me stuff. But they still do.  Another time a friend had worked really hard and was having a terrible time and offered me a burger patty when I arrived, assuring me it was gluten free. I knew I hadn't been there to watch whether she used the "bun spatula" on it or not...but I just didn't feel like giving her a fight about it since she was having a rough time and hosts like to feel they are feeding guests, blah blah. So I ate it. And got glutened. And wailed and gnashed my teeth haha. Lesson learned.  I need to stick to my guns more. I just always feel like I'm being too "difficult" as it is. But...sigh.  It is refreshing for me to read these empowered no BS responses though. You all remind me of where I'm coming from, and not that I'm just being some kind of high maintenance, rude, crazy person. You'd think after, what, nine years now, I wouldn't still be bothered by it...
    • Mashed potato soup during healing
      I was on pretty much a liquid diet for 8 months waiting for my nausea to go away completely. I mostly had mashed potato soup, 1/2 fat ice cream (mostly whey, not milk), chocolate drink (no added milk) and gummy vitamins. The soup tasted yummy and I'm still alive so I figured I'd share it for people not feeling well in the beginning. I've been noticing people with alot of trouble keeping food down in recent posts. I couldn't have milk or eggs, but the cheese in the recipe didn't bother me at all. Notice the lack of spices. Makes it easy on the stomach.   Mashed potato soup: Boiled yukon gold potatoes (5lb bag) 1 package cauliflower, steamed 4-6 slices of Land O'Lakes white American cheese 4 tablespoons butter salt 16 cups homemade chicken broth, salted   Chop steamed cauliflower into teensy bits (pureed is better). Put in mixer with butter, cheese and a potato or two. Blend while slowly adding potatoes. Keep whipping for a few minutes to insure the cauliflower and potatoes are not lumpy at all. Salt to taste.   Combine 1/2 cup mashed potatoes to 1 cup salted chicken broth. Mix with spoon until mashed potatoes have completely dissolved. Enjoy. Individual servings can be frozen.   Homemade chicken broth: makes 8 - 10 cups of broth   1 organic chicken (regular chickens are too big) 1 stalk celery 1 carrot 1 large bay leaf 1/2 package fresh thyme from the  herb section of the vegetables area   Put all ingredients in pressure cooker along with 1.5 liters water. Bring to pressure. Cook for 35 minutes. Separate broth from solids. Separate broth from fat. Add ridiculous quantities of salt until it tastes like soup. Sorry I use a salt grinder so I don't have precise salt quantities.    
    • I have kidney stones...spent last night at the ER
      Hey ArtG, I saw the urologist today...unfortunately for me they can still see my stones on an xray.  Sigh.  The largest is 3x6 in my right kidney.  He does not believe I can pass this one on my own.   All of my bloodwork came back fine.  Nothing alarming in the urinalysis either. His recommendations...keep drinking tons of water.  I had 4.2 liters of urine output when I tested.  Add in a fish oil supplement.  Decrease sodium intake.  Limit meat to 10 ounces per day.  Increase dietary calcium.   Work at lowering oxalate consumption...my urinary oxalate was 45.  They want it between 20 and 40.  But he gets people that are over 100 so mine is not all that high. 3 options...1. watch and wait.  Recheck in a few months to see if there is stone growth.  2. Shock wave lithotripsy.  3. Let it come out when it decides to and see what happens. I just don't know.  I hate the idea of being put under as they would do for the shock wave thing.  I've had too many surgeries already.  It scares me to be honest.  I also don't want to deal with another episode.   I don't know what I'll do.  We've got a vacation planned at the end of the month and I just want to go and enjoy that.  Not worry about kidney stones. I'm sorry to hear about your upcoming surgery...it really is always something!
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I know what food products are. Probiotics was a recent example I saw on the news about things labeled gluten free that were not gluten free. So, supplement labels in addition to food labels.

      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!
