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!!

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

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.

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.
