Is All Brown Sugar Gf?
0

8 posts in this topic

Hi,

I have a last minute problem figuring out if I can eat this spiral-cut Carando Ham. Can't call on the weekend. I know I can't have the glaze, but, the ham itself contains brown sugar. Is brown sugar always gluten-free?

Thanks,

-donna

Donna-

I called about the Carando Ham's Thursday. I was told that they have not been tested and they will not confirm that Carando Ham's are gluten free. I brought the ham back to the store and bought a Hillshire Farm Spiral with brown sugar glaze. Hope this helps.

Brown sugar is gluten-free. Can't say about the ham but the company's statement is standard CYA. MOST commercial products have never been tested. I doubt the Hillshire Farm ham has been "tested."

Well, the brown sugar was the only ingredient I was not sure about. Other than that, I guess the only problem is possible contamination? Why else would I need to worry, if the ingredients are gluten-free? But it's not like ham goes through a lot of processing the way a bag of chips would go through a production line, so, perhaps there would be less chance of it containing any significant amount (?)

Well, I dont have much choice, so, I'll let you know how I turn out ;)

Have a great Easter!

Maybe this wasn't very safe of me, but I ran into this with a spaghetti sauce the other day. All the ingredients were gluten-free but the company wouldn't promise it was gluten-free. I had a bite with no problems. Honestly, if you can't rely on ingredients, then you can't trust anything, b/c I'll bet most companies don't test for gluten. Kraft labels well, but do they test?

"Kraft labels well, but do they test?"

I'm sure they don't. If all you're going to buy is "tested" product, you'll be fairly limited.

Yeah, that's pretty much what I figured. I'm going to go enjoy my ham now. :D

Have a good one!

FYI, Carando Ham lovers,

I ate the spiral cut ham today and I feel just fine. I DID NOT have the glaze on it (it has wheat in it). I'm ultra sensitive, so.... if I'm okay, it must be safe :D

Thanks!
