Does anyone know what specific brands of meat sold in the deli (not processed; fresh meats sliced to order) to avoid or which ones are gluten-free? I usually just get whatever turkey is on sale, but I think there is something in my diet causing problems. The turkey is one of the last questionables on my list.
Thanks!

Devon-
Hmmm, I can not speak for sure on brands of fresh-sliced meat. However, I always buy hillshire farms deli selects in the package--very good. Maybe some of these links below will help you out. (One is Jennie O' Turkey's gluten-free list) I would say the thing for you to watch is contamination from the meat slicer in the deli. Even if the meat was gluten-free, you wouldn't be able to account for what was on the slicer, unless they totally cleaned it for you...

Also, personally--I can not tolerate turkey at all--gluten free or not. For whatever reason it has always given me horrendous abdominal pain. It is the hardest meat to digest, so your issue may not necessarily be a gluten-free one ... Good luck!

Very good point. Are there any other pre-packaged meats that people would recommend? Also, if turkey is the most difficult meat to digest, what is considered the easiest? I'm going to forego the turkey for now and see if that's causing the problem.
Thanks so much!

hey there-

i believe boars head are mostly gluten free, except for a particular olive or pickled loaf..check out their site.
also, brands like applegate farms and wellshire farms, which can be found at whole foods, have specific a gluten free labeling key-most if not all of their meats are gluten free. check out their sites as well.

I don't trust them to properly clean the slicer, so I buy Sara Lee PRE packaged swiss cheese and turkey. It's WONDERFUL and it's all prepackaged and gluten-free. I've had no problems with it whatsoever.
I stay away from the deli b/c of the slicer issues. I've worked in delis before; it's almost impossible to get it totally clean unless the employee is just absolutely meticulous.

I have been desparately trying to find deli meats for my son's wedding. Seems that even though some of the meats themselves are gluten-free, most places do not recommend you use the deli because of cross contamination. Kroger's Private Selections have several that are gluten-free and are also available in small packages pre-cut and packaged in the meat department. This works well for everyday use, but I need 60 lbs for the wedding! We are trying to work out something so that they clean the machines and cut it special for me overnight or something. I'll try to remember to let you know how it works out.
