My family has been happy with leftover dinner meat to make sandwiches for quite awhile, but there is a bit of repetitive grumbling in my home about never having deli meat anymore.

So what is your favorite gluten free deli meat?

I'm looking for packaged meats in particular, simply because I don't feel like hitting the deli counter until I can enjoy processed meats again.

BTW - the best way to purchase deli meat sliced at the store is talk to your store manager - most stores wash the slicer at the end of the day - so if requested they can slice your order first thing in the morning and set it aside for you to pick up.

Thanks everyone!

Boar's Head meats and cheeses are all gluten free (prepackaged), as well as many of their condiments....and pretty good too! :)

cya: always read the ingredient listing.

I'd prefer leftovers, too, but don't always have them nor do I want to buy from the deli counter either.

I like Oscar Mayer Deli Fresh and currently have the smoked turkey, which is prepackaged.

If you can get the Boars head pre-packed, those are the best. We also like the hormel Naturals http://www.hormelfoo...hoicemeats.aspx

I like the smoked turkey and the honey or smoked hams. M says the regular turkey is a bit slimy.

I buy all of the above - Boar's Head (ask the deli to clean the slicer), Hormel Naturals and also Trader Joe's ham and turkey.

I am getting to where I don't like the saltiness of deli turkey so i think I'm going to try roasting a breast once in a while. I expect ham to be salty, so I just eat less.

I like the Schneiders Naturals. No nitrites and no gluten. Very short ingredient list.

From a gluten perspective, I can no longer name a deli meat that does have gluten. There probably are a few somewhere, but fewer than even just five years ago.

The other day I was buying ham and found 3 or 4 brands that contained wheat! I do not recall the names but if I think of it I will write them down and add them here. In fact, I had difficulty buying ham without. I think one was a President's Choice but will double check.

ETA: Oops - this was supposed to a separate post. Not sure how this happened! Looked for ham today (Sept. 10) and found only one that did NOT contain gluten. Those that did included Butchery something and Maple Leaf (a few varieties). The store brand contained wheat, too. Thankfully I am able to get Frebeye's here!

Thank you all! Very nice to have a jump start list.

Concern started today - teen son really wanted sliced turkey so ran up to the store (my teens generally don't go to the store without being asked/bribed to do so) and bought Jennie-O because he thought their products were all gluten free. A quick search of their gluten free product list didn't include the sliced turkey he purchased - perhaps I just didn't research it enough - but thought I'd take a break from the product research this evening and ask for a few favorites -- plus it is nice to know things are going to taste good before purchase - my computer hasn't developed this particular skill yet. I'm thankful each day for the internet, but when will the Smell&Tast-O-Vision cards be ready for installation?

I like Applegate. Expensive, but worth it. Organic, antibiotic free. Many are gluten and casein free.

I buy Applegate (first choice) or Boar's Head (only from my local produce market which has a deli...they only sell Boar's Head so no other meats are sliced on their equipment).

Love2travel, you are in Canada and the person who asked the question is in the U.S. So am I. In the U.S., almost no ham has gluten (I can't actually name one that does have it but I can't say that absolutely none do).

True enough. The differences between countries can be quite vast, can't they? I was shocked I was only able to find one kind of ham out of six or seven that did not include wheat. I should have made it clear in my posts I live in Canada. My intent was to mention it for the benefit of fellow Canadians. Thanks for pointing it out.

Hi, I'm new to this forum. I am not Celiac but I do have an issue with gluten since I have had Crohn's Disease for decades. I'm allergic to Soy and Lactose intolerant. I use Applegate and Boars Head; both great products, expensive but worth the money.

I did email Hillshire because I had read somewhere in this forum that Hillshire was gluten free. According to their answer below they currently do not have any gluten-free products but are working on them!

Its Christina from Hillshire Brands, thank you for your question regarding gluten-free products. Hillshire Brands complies with the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act with regard to all labeling. We do not promote or certify that any our products are gluten free.

We do not promote or certify that any our products are gluten free at this time. However, we are in the process of making gluten free products with our deli meats. Once they officially come out onto the market we will contact you directly to let you know!
