I had a Nathans Hotdog the other night & I had a bad reaction to it, it made me very sick! it says its Gluten Free on the label I haven't had a Hot Dog in a few years so I though I'd try one now I'm sorry I did could it have been an ingredient I reacted to? the ingredients are

water
beef

natural flavorings, sodium phosphate, hydrolyzed corn protein,paprika, sodium diacetate, sodium erythorbate, sodium nitrite, :blink: :unsure:

Did you eat anything else with the hot dog? Ketchup, mustard, baked beans, etc? Could it possibly be something other than the hot dog?

I don't see anything that would make you sick in the hot dogs, but some people are extra sensitive to preservatives and/or nitrites.

If I remember correctly, sorbitol is a sweetener and also happens to be a laxative when taken in larger amounts. It draws water into the large intestine, stimulating bowel movement. I know I react strongly to even minute amounts of sorbitol. It gives me intestinal cramps :( I can't even chew sugar-free gum or use Flouride rinse or I get very sick. Perhaps you are sensitive to that?

It could be a number of things...I hope you figure it out and look forward to what other have to say :)

Edited to Add: I found this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sorbitol

It says, "Sorbitol also may aggravate irritable bowel syndrome,[8] and similar gastrointestinal conditions, resulting in severe abdominal pain for those affected, even from small amounts ingested."

I doubt this is helpful but this is what happened to me:

I was eating a gluten-free brand of beef franks and feeling like they were bothering me. Well, got allergy tested, went back through labels and low and behold, the franks that I thought were all beef had soy protein in them, well, my allergy test was positive for soy, beef and mustard(which I had been dipping them in! I also tested positive to some spices, which I didn't check to see if they are in the franks yet, but one, if not some, are likely to be. No wonder I felt like they were not quite agreeing with me!

In addition they are the greasiest hot dogs I have ever eaten. I love the way they taste but all the grease doesn't like me much. I hadn't noticed the sorbitol in them, I don't tolerate it either so that may factor in for me also. Too bad cause they taste so good, oh well back to Oscar.

your definitely right about the sorbitol. breath mints, gum, cereal would all give me a stomach ache. have you tried the boar's head brand of hot dogs? they have skinless and aren't greasy. they do of course have the nitrates/ nitrites but great flavor (which is why we always bought the nathan's). :)

Thanks so much for the info on Boar's Head. I'll have to pick those up next time I shop. I love hot dog's baked in saurkraut on a summer day.

Do any of you guys like Hebrew National Kosher Hot Dogs? I hate that most hot dogs contain random body parts of animals (gross out!) and that Hebrew National are high quality. But...I've never tried them. Anybody have any reviews? I did check, they are gluten free :)

:lol: Hebrew National are the ones I was talking about in my previous post. I'm not a conisseur of Hot Dogs/Franks but I liked them-esp. the low carb and sugar content. Those and Boar's Head were my staples. However, as I noted, my body didn't like the HN:( Just my bad luck. Nothing wrong with them.
