Can Pork Have Gluten?
0

3 posts in this topic

Well I'm really on the wall and having a hard time finding anything to help me answer my question so here's the story.

I made a very yummy stuffed pork tenderloin and not long after I became very very sick (all my usual gluten symptoms) and ruling out bad food in general the rest of my family ate it with no problems. It was a very simple recipe so I can only wonder if the pork tenderloin it's self was to blame. But I can't find anything about pork tenderloins having gluten. It was in the fresh meat section but it was plastic wrapped with liquid the way you find whole turkeys, chickens, and baked hams. Could the juices (no ingrediant list) be to blame? I heard that sometimes happens with poultry that is prepackaged. Is there same pork terderloins? I also live in the united states, and there are many wonderful gluten free pork tenderloin recipes I would love to try but I don't want to get sick again. Here is the complete ingredient list if anyone has any insight please let me know.

pork terderloin

fresh parsley

green onions

Bacon (kraft brand with no gluten listed)

spicy mustard (frenchs no gluten according to their site)

Seems possible to me that the juices could be suspect.

I know I have found that any meat that isn't just plain may (or may not) have an ingredient list hiding on the packaging some place, and my favorite culprit is "natural flavors". Even ground beef from some stores/brands...

Couple of ideas if you want to play Sherlock Holmes - go back to the store where you bought it, see if the same product is still there. Ask the butcher (if there is one) what all is in the juices and where it was packaged - at the store, at a distributor, where? You may not solve the source, but who knows you might get closer to figuring it out!

Then, the next time you want to make a pork tenderloin, buy one that is plain and 'dry' instead of packed in liquid/pre-marinated. Might mean going to a different store, or just making prior arrangements with the butcher.

(Also, any cc chance? is your oven self-cleaning & have you cleaned it since going gluten-free? Any pre-gluten-free wooden utensils involved in your prep?)

Good luck, hope you feel better soon!

Pork in itself is gluten free. Preseasoned pork may contain gluten.

Early into healing it's pretty hard to pin-point a glutening because everything we eat will be an irritant until some healing can take place, gluten or not.

You also might be aware that a shared mustard jar my be contaminated by spreading on gluten bread and double dipping.

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
