Hi there can anyone tell me if bacon has gluten and if so what brands do not. Thanks


In Calgary and Edmonton (Farmer's Market) there is a vendor called SUN WORKS they are a celiac family that farms grass fed animals...all their meat is gluten free (not grain fed) and that includes their bacon also eggs.
They also have various breakfast susages,chicken weinners, chicken meatloaf luch meat, rst.beef lunch meat, lamb, etc... a really great selection! Tasty! And a busy vendor!!
I believe on their website they can accomodate people that can't get to the market...they are a really great family

Hope this helps! Also ORGANIC!

This will be good news for those seeking organic foods.

Meat is gluten-free regardless of what the animal from which it came was fed.

As Peter said, it makes no difference at all what the animal is fed. The meat is gluten-free even if the animal eats wheat or barley.

SunWorks Farms rocks! I've been buying their products for years. Their products are also nitrate- and MSG-free.

"Plain rice would be gluten-free. Most items with only one ingredient are safe, unless the ingredient is obviously a gluten source such as flour."

I unfortunately had a bad experience with rice. I had Unico long grain rice and OH boy I was in pain for days. I added other ingredients such as eggplants and lentils I had those both by themselves and was fine so rice had to be the culprit. It's such a pain because it's not listed anywhere on the packaging "may contain wheat, soy etc." I'm going to shoot them an e-mail about this see if there was some cross contamination.

I live in Alberta and HAVE seen bacon containing soy sauce derived from wheat! Cannot recall which brand, though. So, carefully read the labels.

In Safeway, there is back bacon slabs that you slice yourself. These are labelled gluten free. Also, their old fashioned peanut butter (needs to be stirred) has only "peanuts" on their ingredient list. I use it, never had any problems with it.

Know is thread is old, but it's still the first hit in google for 'is bacon gluten free' and I do have some input.

BF recently bought the Maple Leaf Naturals bacon, which has Naturals gluten-free weiners, so he thought the bacon was also gluten free. Unfortunately the ingredient list was unclear, go 'spices'!
I emailed Maple Leaf and they said that the ONLY products they guarantee that are gluten-free are ones with Gluten Free right on the package. So their Natural bacon is NOT gluten free, for whatever reason. Being a large manufacturer of many other pork products that involve wheat, they probably don't have the gluten-free production line or whatever or maybe their 'spices' aren't gluten-free.

Furthermore, many bacons have natural and artificial flavors and colors listed in their ingredients, which may not be safe. And Maple Leaf probably isn't the only bacon brand that is likely to have cross contamination, since lots of companies make ham and weiners and bologna etc, as well as bacon. Bacon is a processed meat, not a cut of fresh pork.

I was largely only buying local bacon from my local farmer's market prior my dx (because their pigs actually have a semblance of a life, short though it probably is, not merely a tortured existence), which happens to also be gluten-free. It's tastier anyways.

No grain can legally be listed as "spices." Spices as an ingredient are always gluten-free. Do not confuse "spices" with "seasoning"--the terms are quite different.

I have never found a bacon that had gluten in twelve years gluten-free.

I went to the Farmer John web site and I don't see gluten anywhere. Please help me find where the gluten is in the ingredients. I can't see it.

It's in the seasonings, when scanned the product comes right up as including gluten and wheat.

What do you mean " scanned"? If it has wheat, legally they must disclose that in the US and Canada on the package, in English writing, that anyone can read.

Do you people not have iPhones? Lol there are apps that will scan the package and break down exactly what is in each of the ingredients. It's a great thing, any questions and it will pick it right up. If there any possibility of gluten it automatically high lights it.
