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.

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
