How Do I Find A Gluten-free Turkey?

7 posts in this topic

I heard that some turkeys have injected gluten. How do I find a good one to buy?

I have a QFC, PCC, Whole Foods and Fred Meyer to choose from. Ideas?

Thanksgiving Products You Can Use

Turkey

Note: Most fresh and frozen turkey's are gluten free. Be VERY cautious with "self-basting" turkeys and do not use the included gravy packet that may come with a turkey.

Assuming you are in the U.S. you don't have to worry. Any turkey, including self-basting ones, MUST by USDA law list any grain. All you have to do is read the ingredients.

I have yet to find a turkey that has gluten, unless it's stuffed.

Honeysuckle White is gluten-free. You can go to their website and it will list the gluten-free status of any of their products.

Yes, Richard is right--any turkey would have to list if there were any grains added.

I get a Butterball fresh turkey. Nothing added, and juicier than frozen. I order one about 2-3 weeks in advance from my grocery store, and pick it up the day before Thanksgiving. Nothing to thaw or store, either :)
