Hillshire Farms Oven Rosted Turkey Deli Meat?
0

19 posts in this topic

Ok so I understand they don't hide anything in their labeling but I bought a vareity pack from Costco and my only question is on the Oven roasted turkey it says modified food starch. I called the company and they said well modified food starch comes from either wheat or corn but my package doesn't say from which source.....the company is supposed to get back to me but so far no one has. Does anyone else know?

My understanding is that if it is made/packaged and processed in the borders of the US that the MFS is supposed to be made from corn or another non-wheat grain. BUT...I have been burned on that before. Because items can be processed outside the US and packaged here - that gives them a loophole in the law and they can claim ignorance.

I would wait until you know for sure from the company before eating. It SHOULDN'T be a problem BUT is it worth the risk?

I agree it isn't worth the risk,,,modified food starch could be wheat. I wouldn' even for sure trust any response I got from a customer service representative. There are brands of deli meats that are okay. Just read the labels every time.

Per 2006 food labeling laws, if the product has one of the common allergens, it must be listed. I am 99% certain it is corn starch (from an email I got from them a couple of years ago)

Also, I eat Hillshire Deli meats all the time - no worries!

Customer service reps are worthlesshalf the time. Rest assured, Hillshire is a huge company and they wouldn't knowingly violate the labeling law (they have tons of lawyers that work for them that would not let that happen).

Agree with Chris.

If it were derived from wheat, it is required by law to be listed. If its not-its safe from wheat. :)

Unless they are running out a lot of labels that were made from before the law changed. Companies are allowed to do that. I would avoid eating this with the ambiguous answer.

ALL Hillshire Farm sandwich meats are gluten-free. In addition, it's my understanding that it doesn't matter how many labels you run, it's whether the product was packaged and labeled before Jan. 1, 2006, which sandwich meat would be, of course. AND, even if I'm wrong about the labels, I simply cannot imagine Hillshire Farm printed and then stored 16 months of labels. It wouldn't be cost-effective.

I've eaten the oven roasted turkey for years.

Hi there-I have a couple questions...Hillshire Farms Kielbasa seems to have no "bad" ingredients EXCEPT "soy Protein"...I'm always afraid when it says soy. I thought soy was off limits...but I think I'm confused. Any soy products...derived from soybeans (how do I know?) should be good, right? Is it only the soy that is "soy sauce" used in Asian cooking/restaurants that isn't good?? The lists all say "no soy" but the 2 things I've eaten recently that had "hydrolyzed soy protein" didn't bother me. I was scared to death after I ate them...but nothing happened. Could someone please clear this soy thing up for me? Thanks so much! KarenDianne (I'm rarely on this site lately so if you could answer some time today...it'd be great!)

Why would corn chips not be safe? The ingredients are corn, oil, and salt, and they are not processed on lines that process wheat ingredients. Plus, nowheatnomilk said that (s)he has had them before without a problem. Why would you suspect corn chips before the turkey?

Soy sauce usually contains wheat. That's why you can't have it. There is one brand (maybe more) that doesn't contain wheat. I can't give the particulars because daughter has a soy allergy so we don't eat it.

Soy is safe for those with Celiac. It does not contain gluten.

Nothing happened because its safe. :)

Soy sauce is an entirely different story. Most soy sauces have wheat in them, including soy sauces that are used in frozen foods, in marinades, etc.

For your own cooking at home, there are a few brands of gluten-free soy sauce, though.

Unless they're made on dedicated lines, items like chips etc. are generally much susceptible to CC. I would suspect CC in chips before the meat.

Soy is OK. Soy sauce is a problem because many are also made with wheat. It has nothing at all to do with the soy.

I have also found out the hard way that if it does not say wheat free or gluten free, there is a good chance it has wheat/gluten. I found out the same misery with Dennison's chili, gotta love that "modified" corn starch......I have found that any modified anything starch has traces of wheat/gluten in it. The symptoms are milder because it is not a main ingredient, but it still sucks.

I know this is an old link, but I guess we are still going back to it....

My question to this is - Is there MSG in hillshire farms? I am remembering that, if it does, sometimes celiacs/and others have difficulty with that as much as they do gluten. I know that I have a major problem with it.

    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet
