The topic title pretty much says it all. I am a huge fan of sandwiches and despite having not been diagnosed for sure yet am on a gluten-free diet. If I don't get to eat sandwiches soon I will cry!! How do I know what deli meats are okay and what aren't? are they all processed? are the slicers contaminated? Where does everyone else buy their meat or is most meat okay? Also cheese, now that I think of it. Is it always gluten-free?

:rolleyes: I'm desperate for my sandwiches!! (= Thanks for any help anyone can give!

Hillshire Farm Lunchmeats are gluten free. They are good. I make a roll-up with them. Lay out the meat, put some cheese inside and roll up. You can also put a layer of lettuce on the outside which is tasty. I absolutely can't stand gluten-free bread so I just avoid it! ha

I use kraft cheese slices in my roll-ups. Also velveeta is gluten-free.

Enjoy!

I live on the Boar's Head Tavern Ham deli meat. You'll have to check which other ones are gluten-free.

Frebey brand deli meats are gluten-free, lactose free and MSG free. It states this on the label. They are sold in most grocery stores in British Columbia. I don't know about anywhere else.

Diestel's lunch meats are gluten-free as well. (To the best of my knowledge, you may consider double checking with the company.)

Thanks everyone for the replies!! I think that the Boars Head and Hillshire Farm brands are available here in Nebraska. Do most of you purchase chicken breast and roasts and such at health food chains? I never realized until the other day that meat even had any gluten in it, but thanks to reading all of your disscussions I've been able to find several sources of gluten in my diet that I didn't realize were there. This board is my most valuable assett and I don't think I would be coping nearly as well without it. Thanks for the advice and if anyone has any more on meat please feel free to add!!

Hormel meat is either gluten free or the gluten is clearly labeled. That includes Oscar Meyer deli meats that are prepackaged.

Yes the slicer gets contaminated from some of the meats and also the scale and the gloves that the workers are wearing. I ask them to change their gloves and put a clean sheet of wax paper on the scale and hope that the person ahead of me got a gluten-free meat. ;)

I try to eliminate any hidden gluten but at some point I think we have to just be realistic. I read soewhere unless we pick the grains ourselves or butcher the animals ourselves, we have to to acknowledge that we will never be able to eliminate gluten entirely but we can make ourselves crazy if we worry about it too much.

I guess what I am saying is I try to do my best and trust God for the rest cause we just never really know where most of our food has been before we get it home.

    • Can treatment for Giardia reverse active Celiac
      So interesting!  Please keep us posted!  
    • Pre Biopsy gluten intake
      Here is a link that will tell you what each of the major celiac disease centers recommend. I reference this site because the woman writing it is a doctor herself who has celiac disease and is also a member of this site. She's done the research for us & put it all together in one post: http://www.thepatientceliac.com/2014/07/06/hope-for-a-less-challenging-gluten-challenge/
    • Sjogren's, Celiac, or both?
      Thanks for the input! cyclinglady - I've been trying not to be mad at my GP for ruling out Celiac at a time when I didn't know any better, but now I'm PO'd! Going back on gluten is going to suck. I was accidentally exposed last week, and I didn't go to the bathroom for two days, had my first headache in months, and wanted to sleep all day. Eight to 12 weeks sounds awful! I wish she would have done that test when she was taking blood by the pint for all sorts of stuff I didn't have. Blerg. ravenu5 - Thanks for sharing about your constipation. I didn't know how normal it was to not have diarrhea. But my constipation was also basically untreatable by normal means. I used to laugh when people suggested prunes. I could have probably eaten them by the bucket (though the most I ever tried at once was a dozen or so). I was so shocked when I started going to the bathroom regularly after eliminating gluten. The last time going to the bathroom wasn't an issue for me was when I was a kid! Gemini - It's nice to hear from someone else with Sjogren's! I haven't met anyone else in real life with Sjogren's, and I've never posted on a forum before. And thank you for being sorry about my miscarriage. It super-duper sucked. The miscarriage drove me to a third rheumatologist because I felt like I needed to know what was wrong with me. With two healthy, full-term pregnancies in the last five years and no history of problems, my risk of miscarriage was low, and I felt like the timing (all these new symptoms and the miscarriage) probably wasn't a coincidence. (But my kids have been a huge comfort. My youngest turned a year old the day after the miscarriage, and I feel so terrible for anyone who has to go through a miscarriage without a baby to cuddle. I don't know how it's done!) The first two rheumatologists I went to after my positive ANA and SSA said I didn't have Sjogren's! (Is there a space on this forum for doctor rants?) Anyway, Thank you so much for sharing with me. It's really nice to hear other voices on these things.  
    • blistex etc
      I use Blistex and I can tell you it's gluten free. I happen to use this one because I'm sensitive to sunscreen plus I just like a simple product without a lot of crud in it. http://www.blistex.com/products/simple-and-sensitive/ BTW, here's a reference from Jan. 2014 where Blistex responded: Blistex:  This company got back to me on January 31st, 2014.  They said “…all of our Blistex lip care products are gluten-free; meaning that they are free from wheat, rye, barley, and oats.” Here's a link to the site which reported this. They list numerous other lip products as well. http://www.thesavvyceliac.com/2014/01/30/gluten-free-lip-balm-mission-impossible/
    • Pre Biopsy gluten intake
      I was recommended to take at least 10g of gluten daily prior to the endoscopy.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,

      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!
