It's been a bad week, I keep glutening myself and i'm about to have a crying spell. I have felt awful this week and it seems to keep getting worse.
Ok, i bought this hormel natural deli meats, turkey specifically. It states nitrate free, gluten free, no msg added, no artificial ingredients, now in the ingredients list it says water, salt, natural flavor, lactid acid, starter culture (not from milk) and something called turbinado sugar.
I have noticed after eating this I get a major migraine and I feel icky. No stomach problems or pain just an overwhelming feeling of the blahs.
I have a sugar sensitivity so I'm wondering about the turbinado sugar. Never have heard about that one. I went to their website but I haven't found what the natural flavor is.
I am definetly not eating this again. But I was just wondering if anyone might have a clue?

I have noticed that the smoked ham doesn't sit well in my stomach. The "cooked" one is much better. I don't believe it's a gluten issue, my symptoms are different, I suspect one of the other ingredients but haven't taken the time to research it. I feel better when I eat an even more natural turkey too. Generally I feel better when everything is more natural. Our sensitive systems!

My daughter eats the turkey, chicken and ham with no problems. But if you have a sugar issue, that could be it.

Just an update, really strange. I don't think I was glutened unless that natural ingredient has something in it I can't find out about.
I get the feeling this might have been a "left over" symptom that hit from yesterday's gluten episode. Ughhh. or another 1 of my sensitivities from the sugar. That was the smoked turkey I had, this evening I got the nerve up to try the ham and so far ok.
So, i'm thinking delayed reaction from yesterday. Maybe, possibly?

A delayed reaction to a food intolerance can take up to 72 hours to show up so I think you are correct that it could be something you ate from the day before. Delayed reactions can drive ya crazy when your trying to figure them out!

I have eaten all of the Hormel Naturals and have never had a problem - I think you might be on to something with the delayed reaction.

I know I find that having to figure out what bothered me each time I feel "glutened" can be very frustrating and often makes me go back and investigate what I had the day before.

Good Luck and feel better!

I was glutened from eating their "All Natural chicken product" a month ago. I think is has "hidden MSG" because it tastes too processed. The sugar could have also caused it.

Another update. I have to say the smoked turkey is what did it. I have been ok for the last few days and I decided to try the smoked turkey again so I would know for sure. I got the migraine within 2 hours. Got the blahs again. Nothing major just feeling kinda tired and lethargic. Very strange because the ham dosen't bother me. So, no more smoked turkey.
Thanks everyone for the responses.

I had what I believe to be a gluten reaction after eating two pieces of the honey ham. I believe that it can be very slightly cross contaminated. I believe that I am sensitive to very small amounts of gluten.

I eat the ham every day and tolerate it fine. I've had the other flavors with no problem, just like the ham best.

It's interesting that we both had problems with the smoked products.

Turbinado sugar is sugar in it's natural form before it is processed to granulated sugar. I prefer it to granulated sugar.

Hi there!

I hope you are feeling better. I checked the Hormel website and one of the ingredients listed on the Oven Roasted turkey deli product is Carrageenan (from seaweed). Carrageenan is a NATURALLY occuring MSG product and many people (especially gluten sensitive and celiacs) can be sensitive to it (including me). Maybe you should try to steer clear of all MSG derivatives (and many are hidden in disguise on product labels) and see if you feel better. The words "Natural Flavoring is also a "red flag" I would ask a knowledgable supervisor at Hormel what the natural flavoring consists of? I hope this helps you!
