Pork Tenderloin & Pot Roast - Are Meats Gluten-Free?
0

13 posts in this topic

I bought both of these at a health food store for dishes I'm making tomorrow & Tuesday. They both say, "Minimally Processed. No Artificial Ingredients. No Added Enhancers or Solutions".

Are these safe to eat? I'm a newbie and am eight days out from being glutened and cannot afford to be ill right now!!

Please help.

Yes, I would think you could safely eat these. They have not been injected with any gluten-containing broth and have not been rubbed with any gluten-containing spice mixtures, i.e., nothing has been added to them is what they are saying. So unless they were cc'd by the abbatoir where they were slaughtered (not likely for gluten at least) they should be safe for you. All fresh meat that has been properly handled and not 'enhanced' is safe.

Thank you. The pork tenderloin packaging left off the words " No Added Enhancers or Solutions" so I may have to give it to my neighbors!

Normally they inject a salt solution to keep the meat looking fresh :blink: no gluten in it, but my stomach doesn't like it.

If you are in the US, USDA regulations require any grain product in meat be disclosed.

Im glad u brought up the usda info which leads me to ask this question. Grain fed beef or grass fed beef? obviously I always try and buy grass fed...no artifical anything...etc etc.....we recently got a xmas gift from an oregon beef farm that they claim to be gluten-free but there livestock is raised on a all natural grain diet....what im wondering is if the livestock is eating grain does that mean or at least could it mean that when I eat that livestock am i eating grain?

No. The animals food is digested and becomes muscle , fat, hair, etc. if food wasn't digested and changed into the animal, my son would ooze peanut butter and chocolate milk when he has a cut!

Thanks for your replies folks. I've learned so much in the past week. Cooked a gluten-free meal for the holidays and it was incredibly nice to eat with loved ones in my safe little abode. It's certainly a motivator for being the one who entertains. I'm currently at the in-laws for New Years and it has been impossible to stay gluten-free because of the meats, marinades and whathaveyou. Ugh. What I look forward to the most is not being a meek newbie anymore and finding my own system. What a process!

Let 2013 be the year of rediscovering good health. Happy New Year everyone!

You're not meek, Sparrow. You're searching and discovering.

If you survived the in-laws visit, you can survive anything with aplumb!

My guess is that the next thing you need to learn is to say "No."

As in, "No thank you, I'd really like staying home for the holidays."

Haven't you really always wanted to do that anyway?

You can practice in front of the mirror and substitute "we" for "i". It gets easier,,,

Wish you well,

M

I ate 1/2 a beef steak seasoned only with salt & pepper, within an hour I was having bad muscle & joint pain. I have no allergy or sensitivity to beef, or pepper (per recent (Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned) and skin tests)

I am wondering if maybe gluten or a by-product of gluten was present. Anyone else have problems with grain fed animal meats?

Trying to be gluten-free since December 22, 2012... but finding it hidden everywhere. Suffering & learning as I go.

Meats are inherently gluten free, including those fed gluten-containing grain. Some meat, most especially poultry, is occasionally injected with a gluten-containing broth, in which case it must be labeled in the U.S. as containing wheat. I am sorry you ended up suffering, perhaps from something else you ate?? Sometimes reactions can be delayed.

I will add that many of us prefer to eat organic beef because of all the hormones and antibiotics added to feedlot beef which can have other effects on us, but glutening from the animals being fed gluten is not one of those effects.

Welcome to the board and let us know how else we can help you.

How/where did you cook it?

And was it literally the only thing you ate? And do you always/normally react that quickly?

    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
    • You should see a GI specialist before you go gluten free.  They should do a upper endoscopy to check for celiac damage.  Colonoscopy won't show anything related to celiac.  Also no you should not feel worse on gluten free, you should feel better.
    • So ok, I get the pain/bloating thing, but it still feels so crazy. But my god, I look 6 months preggers after dinner and 4 months the rest of the time. How long will this last?! I have not gained any weight but have to hide me belly now. I can hardly breath! Omg, that does take me back to pregnancy.  I had "acute marked focal duodenditis" a few weeks ago and an elevated DGP. the pain sometimes makes me seriously think I must be bleeding somewhere. It is actually worse then 3 weeks ago. Although many of the other glutening symptoms are finally vanishing. Even my mid and lower back is tender to touch. Sometimes it burns, aches or like someone is stabbing me in my side. My ribs hurt and everything is tender.  I am on protonix and fish oil. I have a prn for xanax which helps the pain (off market use for muscle relaxant).    I am fair skinned and notice a red under-the-skin discolored rash that comes and goes on my upper stomach. Sometimes it travels down one side. Not itchy. Almost like I can actually see the inflammation under my skin.  1) when will I stop looking knocked up?  2) Any other fair-skinned folks notice a purpleish-red rash on your bellies? It mostly goes away and comes back, which I tske to be a good sign.
