Boars Head? Gluten Free?
0

5 posts in this topic

oh i'm getting mixed internet search results.. boars head: what's gluten free? i also need to eat dairy free as well.. some packages say gluten free some do not. Some say dairy free some do not. I've read that almost all of them are both gluten and dairy free, i've read only a few are. Their website doesn't seem to be too helpful. Maybe someone here can shed some light?

We have a celiac and a dairy/casein allergy in the family. We eat Boar's Head. I buy the Mesquite Turkey and the Tavern Ham. As I have learned dairy free does not mean casein free. I have not figured out the labeling issues with the dairy allergy yet, but I have found dairy free items that contain Lactic acid , lactose, whey so I don't understand.

Basically, call Boars Head and ask for a ingredients list to be e-mailed to you (800-352-6277). Target certain meats that you are likely to eat. We really only eat turkey, ham, and roast beef. The other option is ask to read the labels at the grocery store - during off hours.

Another brand to look into is Thurmans deli meat. They are gluten-free too. I do not know about the dairy issue.

Hope that helps.

All Boars Head meats and cheeses are gluten-free. They used to have two meats that had wheat, but no longer.

From their website:

All Boar's Head Brand

Are people finding this stuff pre-packaged, or are you getting it at the deli? My Publix only has the deli stuff and I've been thinking the only way I could buy it was to go in first thing in the morning when the slicers might still be clean.

<<<boars head: what's gluten free?>>>

I'm afraid I don't know anything about 'dairy free' - guess I'm one of the lucky ones with that. But I do know that ALL Boar's Head products are gluten-free. I've even heard it advertised on TV! I nearly jumped for joy when I heard their ad say 'contains no glutens'. I've never heard the words spoken out loud, in public, like that before!! lolol

Over in Europe - the same manufacturers that we have here...clearly label everything!! I just don't understand why it's so hard to get the same thing done here.

    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      I hope you do well on your new diet cristiana, whatever it turns out to be.  Another site with lots of paleo diet info is Marks Daily Apple.  He also lists cooking oils that are good for you vs bad for you to eat.  Try searching his site for topics of interest.  I am not too interested in the paleo diet backstory as such.  But it seems like a good diet for many people to try at least. The diabetes forum has good info also, from people with diabetes vs doctors.  They used to have a chat for people to ask questions, but I don't know i that is still active.  From memory, some of the people there limited themselves to 1 cracker a day's worth of carbs.  And they were off their medication completely.   Mostly against doctors advice about diet, but some doctors give bad advice about diabetes to people.  Like telling people they have to eat carbs to be healthy, which is not true. http://www.diabetesforum.com/forum.php
    • My doctor suspects Coeliac Disease ?
      Welcome!   I am not a doctor, but with your test results you should continue to go forward in the diagnostic process.   My main symptom was anemia and I didn't even have gut issues at all!  People with celiac disease can present in many ways.  My blood test was mildly positive yet my biopsy (via endoscopy) revealed moderate to severe intestinal damage. I would spent time learning about celiac disease and make sure you do not start the gluten free diet before all testing is complete.  This is critical in getting an accurate diagnosis.   Learn more: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/

    • My doctor suspects Coeliac Disease ?
      My doctor thinks i might have coeliac disease, but i hope not, the thought of not being allowed to eat all the things i love to eat for the rest of my days is daunting! Changes to social life, eating out, bbq's and the all the other joys of life would be immense! I have had two blood tests done for celiac disease, the first one came back as 7.2 u/ml    (normal range 0.0 - 6.9 u/ml) The second one which was taken about a month later came back as 22.0 u/ml What do these results generally suggest?   I am a 47 year old UK male. 13 stone. 6ft tall. I'm booked into see the gut specialist next month and to get a biopsy done. My symptoms which have been going on for about 8 months now include bouts of diarrhea, slight upper stomach aches, fatigue/weak feeling joints in lower body like legs, knees, hips and feet, tingling/burning/stinging feeling in buttock area and backs of legs. slight pins and needles in fingers and toes, slight bloating, small patchy rashes/dry skin that come and go. All of my symptoms are never really that bad, but they all just come and go and are a bit uncomfortable, sometimes they do get worse, but it doesn't stop me getting on with my daily life. Just want to get to the bottom of what could be wrong. When i eat breads, cakes & cereals (which i do a lot) i don't really notice that it makes my symptoms any worse, so can this be down to gluten? Any advice much appreciated. Regards J.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
