Is canned sauerkraut gluten free?

The brand that I usually bought is Silver Floss.

I wonder also about canned sauerkraut. I used Safeway Canned sauerkraut and added caraway seeds when cooking it. I had it twice in the last week, and had diarrhea the next day after each.

Has anyone else had the same problem with canned sauerkraut?

Silver Floss is made very near to where I live and is the brand I always buy. I have never had any issues with it. An added benifit is that is has probiotic properties that can be really helpful to those that do not tolerate dairy products.

I haven't had sauerkraut in more years than I can remember. :P I can't eat cruciferous veggies, or I would have it again. I can't even remember the last time I had it, probably over 10 yrs ago!!

Does cooked sauerkraut have probiotics? Or only raw sauerkraut? Raw sauerkraut is easy to make, so maybe you should just make your own to be totally safe. If you look it up on the Internet, it sounds easy. I have not yet tried it, but plan to very soon.

I, too, eat Silver Floss and have had no problems.

The last time I had canned saurkraut was about 10 years ago and I had severe gut pain all night. It was terrible. I was afraid it was the saurkraut and haven't been brave enough to try it again. Don't remember what brand. :(

My grandfather used to make his own saurkraut and it was way better than anything you can get in a can! I did put some canned stuff in a crockpot with a small pork loin a couple weekends ago though and I did not have a problem... I believe it was the silver floss brand.

Thanks for all the responses. I used to make wonderful sauerkraut with beer, pork, caraway and any brand of canned or jars of sauerkraut. Now that I am "gluten sensitive", that leaves out the beer. I am also finding that now when I eat any gluten containing foods, the reaction is far worse than before I went gluten free. I have been gluten free since the early spring. As a result, I am able to decrease my beta blocker medication (for atrial fibs and a pacemaker) due to no longer losing minerals through diarrhea.

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
