Kroger Deli gluten-free Sign

11 posts in this topic

I can't say this is universal at Kroger because I almost never get meat or cheese from the deli, but my dad saw a sign at a Kroger deli in Roanoke, Va., recently that said EVERYTHING they slice, deli meats and cheese, is gluten-free. No need to worry about CC on the slicer.

Wow! Our grocery has a big sign about Boars Head being gluten free. When you ask, they admit they cut other products that aren't gluten-free.

I was just thinking that about kroger. I really want some deli meat but I am not sure if they cut all their stuff on one slicer or if they have a dedicated slicer. It would be great if they did! Next week I will ask

A clarification. I checked the Kroger my father went to and all of the deli meats and cheeses that they slice are Private Selection and the sign he saw and that I have now seen confirms that ALL Private Selection meats and cheeses are now gluten-free. So the slicer they use for those will be gluten-free. Other Krogers also have Boars Head meats and cheeses, but Boars Head is ALSO completely gluten free. Some Krogers used to also have Sara Lee but don't know if that's true now.

Bottom line -- if your Kroger has nothing but Private Selection and/or Boar's Head and they have a slicer they use for nothing else, there's no need to worry. You're home free.

Just be careful of beef. The convenience store I work in sells roast beef in the deli, and it is seasoned with gluten-containing soy sauce. Otherwise, all of the meats and cheeses we sell is glutenfree.

This is not the case with Private Selection and Boar's Head beef.

In another update, a second Kroger I checked slices JUST Private Selection and Boar's Head. They have Sara Lee but it's presliced and packaged elsewhere.

I would be honest, I don't think I would trust anything at a Kroger deli, sadly. Even if the slicer only comes into contact with gluten free foods, there is still so much surrounding the meat and cheese that is not gluten free - like some of the dishes served at the deli - that the risk of CC from sources OTHER than the slicer seem too great.

And I don't know if you've ever taken a look at Kroger's gluten-free list, but even they don't consider it safe. They have a warning on their gluten-free list, under their section on cross contamination.

"...We recommend that individuals attempting to eliminate gluten from their diets not consume any items made in the store bakery or the deli due to the likelihood of cross contamination. This includes meat sliced in the deli."

I'm sure some individual stores might make more of an effort, so perhaps one that is more aware would be safe, but I wouldn't think it's common.

The Krogers I go to keeps meats and cheeses in their own case away from the prepared foods. Every meat and cheese they slice on that slicer is gluten-free now.

Kroger also has this on its website:

"However, speak with your Deli Manager to make arrangements to have your deli meats and cheeses sliced either first thing in the morning or after the slicers have been cleaned, due to the risk of cross contamination."

      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it.

      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

      I have this same issue! I got gardasil in 2009 and have never been the same since. Celiac disease, thyroid problems. I used to be healthy and active and since I got that shot I have never been the same.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
