Gluten Free Hotdogs?
0

18 posts in this topic

BBQ season is here and I've been very busy at work lately (we own a garden centre) so sometimes it is nice just to come home and put some hotdogs/hamburgers on the BBQ but which brands are Gluten Free? It would really save me some time if anyone in Ontario knows already which brand(s) I can buy in my local grocery store...Maple leaf, Snyders, Jumbo juicy's? any of these or others that you know of? Thanks in advance :)

Hebrew National are safe here in the U.S. Not sure if they sell them in Ontario.

Butterball turkey franks are safe. I eat them all the time and haven't had any problems. The butterball site says they are gluten free.

Any uncured hot dogs or bacon for that matter. Been eating Trader Joes hot dogs. They are great.

For those of us in the U.S., hot dogs are universally gluten-free. Not a single one that I know of has gluten. I'd bet it's the same or nearly so in Canada.

The only gluten-free hot dog I've found in Canada that's readily available at all grocery stores is Top Dog Angus Beef. Please check ingredients though, as the other Maple Leaf brands all contain wheat. I discovered the Top Dog Angus Beef last summer and haven't looked at the ingredients yet this year.

Oscar Mayer are gluten-free. Some of the kosher dogs might not be, I seem to recall, but Canadian ones might be different.

Thanks I'll look for them, a lot of the hot dogs here have wheat and the rest say "may contain wheat" or spices or modified cornstarch so I'm a little unsure. I will have to do some more research on some other brands and contact them to find out more.

Thanks everyone else, unfortunetely I havent' heard of any of those brands here in ont.

LOL :D Gotta love this forum! I just did a google search to come up with more info on gluten free hotdogs and immediately got directed to this website. Just read an old post from last year and I hope to find some of those gluten-free hot dogs at costco, lets hope they sell them this year :) Thanks again everyone

Finding the hotdogs is pretty easy. It's getting good buns that's the hard part. (IMHO)

lol Well my son never ate the bun before we found out he had celiac so he doesn't care too much. We actually slice 1/2 the weiner three times up the length and roast them over the firepit...as they cook they shrink up and they look like a squid. We call them Squidward hotdogs and the kids love them. lol

That is so interesting. Here in the US, I have never seen wheat in a hot dog. I don't eat them except once in a blue moon, but I have a harder time finding hot dogs that are soy free and pork free. I guess I will probably never eat one in Canada. :lol:

ETA: I am pretty sure "spices" and "modified cornstarch" are gluten-free in US and Canada.

They are indeed gluten-free.

Really? we have been avoiding anything that says "spices" and "modified cornstarch" because I thought those potentially could have gluten. This is so confusing. lol Trying to remember everything and learn all I need. On any ingredients list do they now have to list any "hidden" glutens?

O.k just dug out my Pocket dictionary and yes it does say modified cornstarch is fine but check modified starch. lol My boy will be happy with this...silly me, it is hard remembering everything. lol

Thanks once again everyone.

Really.

Modified cornstarch is made from corn and is not a concern. Modified food starch could be wheat, but under current rules in both Canada and the US it must be clearly disclosed if wheat is the source. It is most commonly from tapioca or corn.

"Spices" includes a number of possible ingredients, but none of them are derived from grain. Grains cannot be labeled as "spices" in Canada, nor in the US.

My mistake for saying earlier that I would think most hot dogs in Canada would be gluten-free. Didn't realize they put wheat is some of their dogs. Of course, they also put wheat in their Lea & Perrins worcester sauce (or did, at least).

I hear ya on that one!! I rarely eat hotdogs anymore cause it was always about the roll for me! My daughter actually sent me a photo yesterday of the two hotdogs she was having for lunch... on Udi's hotdog rolls! There are no Udi's hotdog rolls in west-by-go-nowhere Arkansas!

    • Welcome!   You were smart to think about cross contamination.  Although it is great that there are so many gluten-free options out there, in the beginning it is best to try a whole foods diet, until your son feels a bit better.  The learning curve for the gluten-free diet is steep.  It is better for you to get everything down before letting others feed him.   When I was diagnosed, my hubby had been gluten free for 12 years.  I thought I knew the drill and converted right over to those gluten-free goodies I baked him.  Turned out, like many of us, I had some food inolerances not related to gluten but as a result of gut damage.  So, additives like Xantham gum made me think I was getting glutened, but I was not.  So, again, try to stick to naturally gluten free foods that are less processed for a while.  When you do venture out, I use "find me gluten free" and read the reviews from celiacs (not a person who thinks gluten-free is a way to lose weight! )   Here are some great tips from out Newbie 101 thread:  
    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks
