Deli Meat
0

16 posts in this topic

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.hormelfoods.com/brands/hormel/HormelNaturalChoicemeats.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!

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water....

    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
