"Pickled" usually means a brine consisting of some combination of water, salt and vinegar. Unless the vinegar is malt vinegar, no worries. If malt vinegar is used in an FDA product it must be labeled as such. ANY grain derived ingredient in a USDA product must be disclosed. Read the label, but I would be very surprised if you found a corned beef that contained gluten.

There are still a lot of outdated lists in circulation from the days before the current labeling laws (in effect for more than five years), and before we understood (due to better scientific knowledge) that such ingredients as vinegar, maltodextrin, and others were safe.

I think Wegmans may be in your area. If they are their corned beef is safe. Even if they are a short drive away shopping there is worth it as they do label all their name brand products that are gluten free.

I also wondered why there might be gluten in deli meat. I was buying some Dietz and Weston meats and they have little tags that indicate any allergens. Very surprised to see all the varieties that had soy and milk ingredients. My fave flavor - brown sugar ham has milk ingredients!

Virtually no deli meats that I know of have gluten.

Be sure to check Deli meats. Cheaper brands could have gluten as fillers. I buy Boars Head because they label all their meats and cheese gluten free.

    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
    • Thanks cyclinglady! I will!
    • You could ask the allergist to give you a starting point for an elimination diet. You would start out with 5 or so foods and then add in one new food a week to see if you react. If you react you of course drop that food. It is a bit of a pain as everything has to be basically single ingredient to start.  My allergist felt that was the best way to go and more accurate than blood testing.
