Processed Meat That's Produced In A Gluten Free Facility?
0

13 posts in this topic

I believe I may be getting cross contamination from the processed meat I buy (Hormel and Jennie O) but it seems like all the brands, even if they say they have gluten free products, also produce them in facilities with products that contain gluten. Are there some brands that are completely gluten free? Should I start buying meat only from a butcher or the grocery deli, but who knows how gluten free they are. It seems like I won't be able to eat meat anymore for fear of gluten contamination. Any help would be appreciated.

I can't eat processed meat due to the preservatives.

Are you sure it's gluten?

I get sick from both. Gluten is way worse, but preservatives make me feel lousy too and cause D and stomach pain.

Hormel has preservative free lunch meat. That is what I eat...but not very often. I haven't gotten sick from it....yet.

Are you buying pre packaged or getting it sliced at the deli? I only buy prepackaged now because there is to much risk of cross contamination from the deli.

At our deli there is a big sign that says Klements products are Gluten free. And they are made right here in WI! I dont eat that type of meat but thought it interesting. Terri O

Anyone else? Everyone who is as sensitive to gluten as I am, what do you do about meat?

wow, i just posted a very similar question before I read this post. I swear I am getting glutened off of Kroger brand ground beef. I feel much like you do, I am so sensitive I can't seem to win no matter what I do. I have, however, had good luck with Jennie-O turkey sausages and the Hormel no preservative bacon, which contradicts your reaction. this is way too hard, boy has our food supply been severely screwed up. but if it helps i eat a lot of Boar's Head and never had a reaction, and like i said, i am HIGHLY sensitive. I get it sliced at Sunshine Market where the slicers are used exclusively for Boar's Head meat, otherwise I would be worried about CC.

I am highly sensitive. I stopped eating processed meats. I buy meat packaged at the meat processing plant only. They do all their cutting up in a dedicated area. That works.

i just realized that Hormel bacon (the natural kind that says gluten free in the cardboard box) has been glutening me after all, it was just so small at first it took me eating it for several weeks to finally realize that was the problem. So no more processed meat for me, either.... I know this post is a little dated now but I had to come back and say this!

Are you sure it's gluten and not something else in the ingredients?

That is precisely what I was thinking.

Maybe it is too much grease for your system? I eat that bacon all the time and never had any issues with it and I am pretty sensitive to even trace amounts of gluten.

You can buy chicken breasts and cook them yourself. If you are worried about contamination get the ones with the skin on and rip it off. They are cheaper anyway. Hormel has some meats marked gluten free and so does Boar's Head. I think there is a brand called Applegate Farms that has gluten-free also.

Applegate Farms has a great selection of meats that is gluten free. I really like their breakfast sausages in addition to their sliced meat. My King Sooper (Kroger) carries them but they are pricy. They are also at some of the local natural grocery stores so if you have that type of store look there. They don't have a long ingredients list and list gluten free on the packaging. Both of which I like. Another option is Costco. They have a gluten free pre cooked shredded chicken by Del Real. In addition they have gluten free sliced turkey that we buy.

    • I had a negative biopsy and was still diagnosed with Celiac. My GI ran a bunch of tests looking for the cause of my 15+ years of diarrhea and the only thing that came back positive was the entire Celiac panel. All very high. So he performed an endoscopy with biopsy. The biopsy was negative. So he ordered a genetic test. When that came back as "high risk" he decided a trial gluten free diet was in order. After 8 weeks my symptoms resolved and my antibodies were back to normal. Since then, follow up testing had shown I have osteoporosis. I am a 40 year old male.  So yes, you can definitely still have it and have significant damage with a negative biopsy. 
    • Annual celiac antibody testing is, in my opinion (and based on what celiac researchers have published), is critical, especially for a 12 year old.  Life is going to get harder for her.  Peer pressure is huge (I have a 15 year old daughter), and remaining diet compliant can be tough.   In Dr. Fasano's, Gluten Freedom, he discusses a young patient who became ill in high school after being gluten free for years.  His parents were perplexed.  Dr. Fasano took the young man aside and he confessed that while on a date, he didn't want to bring up his celiac disease.  So, he ate pizza.  He was too embarrassed to tell his parents.   My daughter does not have celiac disease.  She was first tested two years ago.  Since she is symptom free, is not anemic and her other lab work is fine, we'll wait to test her in another year.  It all depends on the patient, but every few years, testing is recommended for all undiagnosed first-degree relatives.   It certainly sounds like your younger children should be screened.   I wish you both well!      
    • Perhaps you should consider asking for a GI referral.  You might just skip the blood tests and go directly to an endoscopy/biopsies while you are still consuming gluten.  It is the "gold" standard for a celiac diagnosis anyway!   Here's the deal with going gluten free.  You can do it.  It costs nothing, but you must give it six months or longer.  You'd need to think like a celiac, but it can be done!  I'll tell you my tale.  My hubby went gluten-free 15 years ago per the very poor advice of his GP/PCP and my allergist.  After a year of mistakes and learning, he got well.  It worked!  Thirteen years later, I was formally diagnosed.  (It was a shock as I was only anemic at the time.)  Hubby would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical.  I must say, it's nice to see those lab results.  It really helped me adhere to the diet in the beginning too.   So, you know your medical situation.  You must do what's best for you!   I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I'm sure going to have a long talk with my doctor.  Then I'll find a new one that will support me and make sure that my daughter and I both have the proper testing done yearly.  
    • also:  glutendude - i don't get it.  shouldn't it be glutenfreedude?  lolz i eat out few and far between.  most of the times i've been glutened it's been eating out.  this weekend i'm getting my bacon cheeseburger on at red robin  i always get my 'good' waitress - lucky, i guess, paula takes good care of me   and i will eat at bonefish but they have a limited 'safe' menu.  look for places that have the 'GiG'  training they know their stuff.  mellow mushroom, melting pot, california pizza kitchen, pf changs are all supposed to be trained that way.  they know to avoid cc and change their gloves, etc.
