Johnsonville Brats
0

9 posts in this topic

I know I've read on several occassions that Johnsonville brats are all gluten-free - except, of course, for the beer brats. We just got a new, fancy, shiny grill :D and I had a brat today for lunch. The kind that has cheddar infused into the deliciousness of the bratwurst :wub: ...ooooooooh, but it did NOT sit well.

I don't know if I feel like I was glutened, but it definately sits in the right time frame and symptoms. First I got unbearable pains/cramps and then the D started.

All has calmed down now, which is excellent and speedy, but I'm just wondering if anyone has had a reaction to these. I even went to the fridge between trips to the bathroom (I totally washed my hands, though!!) and double checked the ingredients. Didn't see anything suspect - thoughts? Anyone else been glutened by Johnsonville?

Thanks

Courtney

I buy them all the time. But recently, I've tried to stay dairy light. To my knowledge, they are still gluten free but perhaps it's the cheese that you reacted to. Glad you feel better.

You could always trie Boars Head as all meats and cheeses are gluten free.

I am extremely sensitive, and react to minute amounts of cross contamination that don't seem to bother most others.

I contacted Johnsonville a few weeks ago because I was reacting to their product. Initially they advised that the products that I purchased were not made on dedicated lines and that they could tell this by the package UPC, but advised that many of their products were gluten free and could not have cross contamination. After my pushing to try to find out what I need to look for (which products, which UPCs), they admitted that all of their products have potential cross contamination, that they do not have any dedicated gluten free plants, but said that they were planning on producing two products sometime in the future on dedicated lines, but could not give me a time frame.

A case of caveat emptor if you're very sensitive to cross contamination.

Do they have any products that do contain wheat ingredients? Ie, where would the cross contamination come from?

best regards, lm

They make a beer brat. They recently had a new commercial come out for it that has the most annoying jingle I have heard in a long time. That might be where the CC issue would come in.

OK, so let's discuss that. Beer would be a small volume ingredient. And Johnsonville makes many sausage products. I'm thinking that's a low percentage cross contamination threat. As with any food product, cross contamination (if it exist) is a hit or miss thing. Ie, it's not a constant. If it's there at all, it will sometimes be there, sometimes not. And if it's there, it will be in always changing amounts.

What will always be there, and in the same amounts, are the other ingredients. I'm guessing some people are intolerant of these ingredients.

best regards, lm

They boil that particular brat in the beer to cook it (if I am even thinking of the same brand). I know I wouldn't be able to consume it. Whether it would CC other varieties I don't know. Different folks have different levels of sensitivity and whether or not to risk CC is up to them and the strength of their reaction. Of course there is also the possibility of folks reacting to something else in it, especially early in the diet when we are not yet clear on what our reactions to gluten are. Of course IMHO folks early in the diet shouldn't be eating something as heavily processed as these are anyway.

I had these for TG and had a reaction to them. Not sure it was gluten but something in them didn't sit right. Could just be I am not used to eating this kind of thing now, been a long time since I did.

      Hi Richie By the sounds of it you could have gluten sneaking in somewhere, or maybe blood sugar issues,  or just plain anxiety, but it would be good to know for sure so you know what to do next. I think maybe the best course of action would be to see your GP and  tell him/her all your symptoms.  Book a double appointment as we say in the UK (but that isn't always possible!)  I dread seeing my own GP because as lovely as she is she is very fond of sending me for blood tests (which always seem to include liver function, thyroid and full blood count) which for someone with health anxiety isn't the recipe for a peaceful night's sleep!  But she is right, those particular blood tests, and others, can hold important clues when one has a lot of vague symptoms.   Celiac testing is of course another set of tests, which Flowerqueen has described well above.    If you do have all these tests and anxiety continues to be a problem, whether caused by by celiac disease, another medical condition or just being a stand alone problem, one book that I would recommend that really helped me understand the condition is 'At Last a Life' by  Paul David. I found it an immensely helpful tool in my recovery.   There is also a website. http://anxietynomore.co.uk/   Keep us posted Cristiana      
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Unfortunately I feel this may be common.  For 6 years I was told I was fine.  Lungs fine, chest fine, just anxiety.  It was not until I pressed the anemia issue that I got a blood test.  Now I am a bit of a squeaky wheel to my doctor.  She referred me to Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN which has a celiac center.  I will meet with Dr. Murray (who is a leader in celiac research) next Friday.  If nothing else, you could always come to Mayo Clinic.
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I read a summary report a doctor wrote about me. I thought doctors were more knowledgeable about celiac disease these days, but I guess not. The doctor diagnosed me with psychosomatic disorder when I told her the symptoms (including anxiety since the intestines regulate this) I had from years of undiagnosed celiac disease that affected my ablity to function. Please let me know if you had any disabling symptoms. I have heard stories of how others felt like they were dying. I felt the same way. I didn't mention that I felt like I was dying to my doctor, though. I just can't believe she thought my symptoms from celiac disease were all in my head like celiac disease isn't a real disease.
    • How long before you know you were glutened?
      Just was curious to know what other people experience. It seems that when I get glutened symptoms don't hit me till about 40 hours later. I had a tiny piece of cookie (not gluten free) on Friday around 6pm. Saturday I felt totally fine so I was thinking wow maybe I'm not so intolerant anymore then this morning (Sunday) holy moly!! Headache stomach ache and anxiety. So whats everyones time frame? How soon before you feel glutened?

      the shakes and nausea and feeling of doom, makes me think low blood sugar.  keep a good food diary. and assess for protein intake.

      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!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
