CALLING ALL CELIAC OR GLUTEN INTOLERANT VEGETARIANS!!!!

I usually buy Gardenbuger Breakfast sausage (patties) by the case, because it is the only gluten free vegetarian sausage made here in the USA.

When my family has spaghetti and vegetarian Italian Sausage I use these for my son and myself.

My Mom went to order a case for me through her PUBLIX and the manager told her that GARDENBURGER was just bought out by MORNINGSTAR FARMS!

This is pretty devastating as MORNINGSTAR FARMS is not at all a Celiac friendly operation...plus they have their own breakfast sausage... links and patties ...so I am thinking they will not be making a 3rd breakfast sausage gluten free for the Celiac Population, when up to now none of their meat analogs are gluten free.

I just called the GARDENBURGER number 1-(800)-459-7079

and they passed the buck by sending me to a MORNINGSTAR FARMS extension. It seems they only acquired them a couple of weeks ago and this was the first call they received regarding this gluten-free Vegetarian product.

They did not even realize this gluten-free Sausage Product was gluten-free!!!!

It is such a shame to see this happen as Gardenburger was the first veggie burger years ago and they seem to be the only meat analog company that is not only gluten-free friendly, but they had a burger for wheat Intolerants (that had oats) and a Vegan veggie burger that was egg free as well.

In this day and age of Gluten Free awareness as well as Autism Awareness (and so many in the Autism Population, now eating gluten-free, and MS Sufferers and many with Down Syndrome) it would be a real shame to lose these products, with the recent advancements in gluten-free Awareness made.

If any of you Vegetarians feel inclined to plead our case the number they sent me to was 1-800-962-0120.

Also even those Non-vegetarians who cannot imagine life without your burgers and meats / those of you with Special Needs Familly Members whose children are gluten-free although not necessarily vegetarians... You cannot imagine how limited meat analogs are amongst celiac Veg's)

PLEASE Please call them and request they not remove gluten-free Sausages from their line of products. The only other gluten-free Meatl analog product I know of in the USA is Tofu Pups by Lightline. They used to have many more gluten-free Products, but they went ahead and "New and Improved" their products by adding wheat or malt flavering to their Chicken free strips and their Italian sausage.

Thank you.

Love & Light

Tee,
I'm so sorry to hear this. I unfortunately had to stop eating most of those meat analogs because they had too much "sugar" in them for my systemic fungus. Also they had other stuff that "fed" the yeast/fungus too like potato starch flour or corn starch flour.

I agree with you that it gets increasingly harder and harder to eat right and be well. It seems like real veggies in their own package eaten raw or steamed is the best food for us. Gluten free oats with blueberries or walnuts for breakfast occasionally or a granny smith apple with cashew butter on it is quite filling. I usually have some sort of green salad and steamed veggies for dinner and maybe rice pasta. Just recently going all gluten free, I've added healthy eggs back into my diet/lifestyle for some variation. :( HOpefully, in the future, I can get off those again.

moldlady :)

P.s. I do have a pretty good recipe for making your own gluten free oat patties. If you are interested JLMK. :)

Hi Moldlady,

Yes I understand often times other things "trigger" ailment and sometimes we cannot be completely sure if it is gluten or other. I am sure you have learned the hard way that it is often the "other".

Oat patties??? Are you using the Bob's Red Mill gluten-free Oats, or the McCann's Irish?


I am one of those people that would get sick from oats, but someone suggested McCann's Irish?
'
I would be interested in the patties. Are they pancake like or denser / breadier?

Love & Light

Hi Pretty,
Yes, use the Bob's Red Mill gluten free oats. But if oats make you sick then you would not like the recipe. They are like a burger and dense. No breading.

ok. I'm in France, but I just filled out their contact us form on their website.. I also posted a message about this on a vegetarian website asking people to do it too! I mentioned the sausage patties and asked for more products to be gluten free.

BTW, when I was a vegitarian, I used to make soysage from scratch, from a recipe in the farm cookbook. It was funny because the main ingredient is the pulp left over from making soy milk, except I never liked soymilk, I only loved the soysage. The recipe does call for whole wheat flour, but I'm sure you could come up w a substitute for that pretty easily. I actually made soysage pigs-in-a-blanket for a big party once, and it was a huge hit.

OF course, go for it and let corporate world know there is a vegan gluten-free market, but there are other options too.

Moldlady,

I LOVE and miss oats so much...I used to weight train and lived on oats (a trigger maybe) it was a breakfast, lucnh sprinkled into yoghurt and dessert too. But Bob's gluten-free was not out then, and I didn't try McCann's.

I would LOVE the recipe anyway, because I would try it with Kasha which I adore (or maybe chance the gluten-free Oats). Is everyone doing oats these days???

Wow! GIG the last time I checked was still saying no to oats.

I don't know that it is a replacement for sausage patties :-) but I'd like to try them anyway. Thank you.

Thank you all others who are willing to help with the vehetarian items.

Oatmeal-pecan burgers 350 F. 25’ turn 20 ‘ more (phase I vegan)
Boil:
4 ½ c. water
1/3 c. + 1T. braggs aminos
2 t. onion powder
l l/2 t. garlic powder
l/2 t. celery salt
l/3c. + 1T. nutritional yeast flakes
l/4 c. sesame seeds
--------------------then add
¾ c. ground pecans or walnuts
2 T. dried minced onions
l t. dried mined garlic
1 t. sage
4 c. gluten free oats
stir and cook again……….then cool
use 1/3 c. size and shape into patties
fry on a non-stick pan or spray pan with oil and bake


This makes quite a few so if you don't eat them all at once, they freeze nice for the next time and saves you all the work. From what I understand, oats have always been gluten free but it is how they are treated at the mill and they get some contamination from the milling of other things like wheat. I've also heard some say that the oats are grown in a field separate from all other wheat fields ...

Hey Moldlady...I forgot I requested this and have not been on in ages...this looks really good! :P Nice ingredients. I have a question do the oats stay "solid" and nutlike...or do they get soft and oatmealish?

I can't wait to try this, you aren't a moldlady, your a gemlady! :D Thank you!!

Love & Light,

thank you for the information. I like being vegetarian but tend to eat too many carbs. I'm needing to find filling alternatives that keep me vegetarian and, of course, gluten free. I was going to go shopping and look at some of these meat alternatives but the more I read posts like yours, the more I think I'll just skip them altogether.
