Gluten-Free Salmon
0

6 posts in this topic

Does anyone know where I can get gluten-free, plain salmon? I read about the salmon in the grocery stores having some food coloring added to the meat to make it pink. Does the pink coloring have any dubious ingredients in it?

I'd like to get gluten-free salmon from from Publix, Whole Foods, Walmart, or Fresh Market. Does anyone buy salmon from either of these places?

If it has wheat in it, it must be listed. It should say if it includes it. Just like any other meat. Obviously, breaded items are out. I believe whole foods has organic salmon if that is of any help.

I think the coloring is added to the fish's food (if farm raised), not the meat. Wild-caught salmon is naturally pink.

Fresh meats, chicken and fish do not contain gluten. Some processed poultry may contain a solution which is injected into the bird to plump it and keep it fresher but that is not so much the norm these days. I buy all my meat and poultry/fish from Whole Foods and have never come across any fresh protein that contains injected anything. You should always read labels but buying meats or other proteins from the butcher there or from the fish section are safe so go ahead and buy some salmon.....Whole Foods has incredible fish! I always buy the wild caught but that is personal preference.

It's the processed proteins that may be a problem but most are OK......always read the label on the package.

You don't have to worry about gluten in salmon, but if you want to worry about salmon anyway you can worry that the FDA is close to approving genetically modified farmed salmon so that it will grow to size in half the time :unsure: in fish farms in Panama!!! And here, silly old me thought that salmon was a cold water fish. This must be a fish of a different kettle :P

The GMO "Aqua-Bounty" :blink: frankenfish "salmon" is a one type of salmon with the genes of an eel and another type of salmon inserted in it.

So of course they want to let some company bio-manufacture this crap in a foreign country, and export it to be sold here. THIS is why we need GMO labeling in at least one state in the U.S. to set standards and force these companies to label this crap, because the FDA is moving to a privatized, "voluntary" self inspection and reporting system. Otherwise, we all turn into yet just another set of lab rats for their eel-frankenfish consumption field trials.

The good news is that some Senators in the wild salmon harvesting states are not too thrilled with the GMO eel-frankenfish, because they fear the risk of this (or something like it) getting loose in the wild, but it is unknown if they have enough clout to stop it.

Since these would be "farmed" GMO eel-frankenfish, one also wonders if they would then be fed other GMO products, like soy, or even wheat, after all, if they grow so much faster in so short a period of time, they must need to eat a great deal of food, and it's grain that is used to fatten livestock on feedlots ...... :ph34r::blink: I suspect that in addition to changing the growth rate, the GMO bio- manufacturers are also contemplating tinkering with creating flesh-bearing creatures that can eat anything .... one could end up with a pinkish- fleshed, mock "salmon" that was, for all intents and purposes, more like a catfish.

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back.
