Hormel Pepperoni And Verifying A Gluten-Free Claim
Posted 21 May 2012 - 11:54 AM
My question is this: Is there a company or a U.S. agency that reviews products that claim to be gluten-free to verify whether it is truly gluten-free? If a product such as this clearly labels itself "gluten free" is there a way to find out if there is a certain percentage of gluten that is slipping into it that they are not admitting?
In any case, I just want those of you who may be very sensitive to small amounts of gluten to be careful when chosing Hormel. It may be safe for some, but if it does contain trace amounts of gluten it may not be gluten-free-enough for those of us who cannot tolerate even the smallest amount of cross-contamination.

Maybe you just can't tolerate this product for one reason or another so in that case, it's better to just avoid it. Our bodies can be pretty wonky at times and we can react to most anything and everything.

I notice you are new so welcome. If your having it on pizza what are you cooking the pizza on? An old pizza pan, peal or stone could be CC'd from past gluten use. Even the cutter could possibly be an issue.
