Back to the bacon subject - I once saw bacon that included gluten in their ingredient list but it was a specialty seasoned bacon that is very uncommon. Aside from that I have never seen gluten in bacon. You must carefully scrutinize labels of things like chorizo, prosciutto and pancetta. Of course I scrutinize every single label of everything I buy but you know what I mean. :)


I worry about smoke flavour. If it says smoke, we're good to go but smoke flavour... I skip it... partially because I'm too lazy to call and ask. I just buy another brand. LOL

I have had one brand of bacon - not sure of the brand anymore but I recognise the packaging and avoid it like the plague. It was smoked but instead of actually smoking their baco they added smoked seasoning to it and every time I ate that brand I got the worst stomach aches. Just read the lables on any smoked bacon to make sure it is actually smoked and you should be fine.

Thanks for the reply. I have a million questions. Can you please tell me if you have to be careful with plain rice? Is it often contaminated with gluten? Also for my little guy are there any fries that are safe. We tried the Ian's but he didn't like them. I called Mccain today and they have some that don't contain gluten but are cooked in the same areas where they process fries with gluten.....so if anyone can tell me any other types of fries that are safe would be much appreciated. Thank-you, Mya

Hi Mya,

My way to avoid gluten in fries is to cook them by myself, actually I bought a special machine which is cooking your fries with less fat...they are delicious and very healthy...my daughters love them...and me too. check the link  for this machine:

 http://www.amazon.co...h fries machine

you can cook them in a deep fryer...my french tip is to cook it in 2 steps. First you dip them in the medium hot oil for 3 minutes. Than you put your thermostat on high temperature, wait untill the oil is warm again, and you cook it for the second time until it is getting a nice goldish color. Bon appetit!!!

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

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

Hey! I know that this is an old post but beware of bacon! It is coated in flour as a thickener. I even get sick when someone is cooking it, it gives me the worst migrane! They do have gluten free bacon just make sure it is labeled, don't assume. Best of luck!

Could you tell us what country that is? In the US, that isn't true. Many countries, the US & Canada included, have laws in place that wheat must be listed as an ingredient.

Also, not sure why you would need a thickener on bacon? Why would you thicken the grease? I guess, if you were making gravy....but you would do that after the bacon is cooked?
