Just trying to scrounge up info here....does anyone know of any hot dogs sold anywhere in Canada that positively, 100%, are gluten-free? Not "may contain wheat" or anything vague like that? I've had a look at various brands sold in stores here in Nova Scotia, and I'm yet to find something that's 100% safe.

It's so frustrating, because so many hot dogs in the USA are safe, but not sold here.

No, I don't believe that there are any that are "positively, 100%" gluten-free, because I don't know of any manufacturer in Canada that actually tests ingredients or the finished product for gluten content.

I haven't bought hot dogs in quite a while, but IIRC, Maple Leaf had some that were free of gluten ingredients and made on dedicated lines.

I get some from Nature's Fair market, a health food store. They have chicken, turkey, beef and buffalo, and they are marked gluten free.

Safeway carries European weinders (Freybe I think) that are labelled gluten-free, think I found them at Sobey's as well.

Costco also carries hot dogs in the big coolers next to the Freybe gluten-free sliced ham...labelled gluten-free but not sure if they are Freybe or not.

There is a brand that we can get at Wal Mart, Harvest they have no wheat. Also I use Lilydale turkey dogs, they are just like reg hotdogs. Freybe and Grimms have lots of gluten and lactose free products.
Good luck.

I was checking out the Maple Leaf Top Dogs recently and noticed the low sodium Top Dogs did not have Wheat listed like all the others did. I know another lady with Celiac in town who eats them all the time and doesn't react.

All the Maple Leaf labels I've read say "may contain wheat"

Butterball Turkey Franks are gluten free. According to their website:

Specifically, gluten is not present naturally in turkey. Only two of our retail products currently contain gluten: Butterball® Frozen Italian Style Meatballs and Butterbll® Frozen Stuffed Turkey.


I've eaten them several times and been fine.

Gluten free since April 6, 2011 ~ Also sensitive to coconut, coffee and food dyes

Joint pain, mouth sores, back and neck pain, migraines, stomach pain, chronic fatigue, ADD and depression are all gone.
Wishing I had been diagnosed before celiac robbed me of the cartilage in my toes and the 3 babies we lost to miscarriages.
