Any gluten-free Hot Dogs In Canada?
0

11 posts in this topic

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.

There are two types at Costco. Piller's European Weiners and Ballpark. Thanks Costco :)

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

Harvest hotdogs, and harvest bison hotdogs. Made here in Saskatchewan.

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
