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?

    • Anxiously waiting
      Thanks heaps. I will def be going private if the wait is too long. I have done a little research but i thought a gluten intolerance and coeliac was the same lol. My iron levels are just below average apparently but she said not bad enough for me to be this tired.

    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      DH is celiac disease that appears on the skin (gluten triggered).  It does not appear when you are consuming dairy, which sounds like a separate issue for you.   A DH biopsy requires active lesions (new/fresh) from consuming gluten.  So, if you want to be tested via a skin biopsy you must go back on gluten.  Finding a dermatologist who knows exactly how to biopsy for DH is often difficult.  Be sure your Derm is knowledable and has biopsied for DH before. Why no endoscopy for now?  I bet your GI  knows that your insurance will deny the endoscopy.  After all, you tested negative to the blood panel.  Your GI should not even ordered the blood panel knowing that you had been gluten free for months.  You have to be consuming gluten daily for 8 to 12 weeks for the blood test to be accurate.   Did you ever test positive?  Why did your primary diagnose you?  Having the gene just means you can develop celiac disease.  Some 30% of the population carries the genes.  The gene test should only be used to help rule out celiac disease.  
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      No one can say exactly how long you might be able to get a positive dh biopsy after having been gluten free as long as you have been. The Chicago Celiac Disease Center says this: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/im-scheduled-to-have-a-skin-biopsy-to-screen-for-celiac-disease-should-i-maintain-a-gluten-containing-diet-similar-to-those-who-are-being-screened-via-blood-or-intestinal-biopsy/ http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-a-gluten-challenge/ You said you had a flare of the plaque psoriasis -- that is NOT dh so why do you think the dh biopsy will show positive? Testing positive for the celiac genes does not mean you have celiac disease. 30+% of the population have the celiac genes but only very, very small fraction of those people do or will present with celiac disease. The gene tests are only used to rule OUT celiac NOT to diagnose it. Frankly, I can understand why your GI does not put any stock in your Primary doc's thinking you have celiac disease. A positive celiac gene and the boils in your armpits which the GI never saw and were never biopsied for dh but they resolved on a gluten free diet and so did your plaque psoriasis. That's all the GI has to go on. I don't know why you are pushing an endoscopy. If you've been eating strictly gluten free then an endoscopic biopsy for celiac will be negative.  Your PCP should have done a celiac blood panel on you back when you were still eating gluten rather than dx you based on the celiac gene you tested positive for.
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      I've been gluten free for a year now and my gastro wants to wait for the endocopy until I'm eligible for the colonoscopy when I turn 50 later this year. I don't think she believes I have celiac, even though I tested positive for one of the genes associated with celiac and my primary has diagnosed me as having celiac. The gluten sensitivity blood tests came back negative, of course, since I was gluten free for 9 months at that time. Why is she waiting? At any rate, My digestive system has improved greatly, but when I reintroduced non fat Greek yogurt in my diet, the plaques psoriasis returned on my elbows. My primary believes it is dermatitis herpetiformis (as well as I, since before going gluten free, I used to get boils in my armpits) and I'm scheduled for a skin biopsy in 3 weeks. However, I eliminated dairy from my diet 4 weeks ago and the plaques psoriasis is healing like it did when I eliminated gluten from my diet a year ago. If the scar is reduced to eczema, does that mean there still are IGA deposits in my skin? I don't want to resume dairy since I experienced a cross reaction to the casein in cheese and found lactose was on that same list. So my question is, how long do the granular IGA deposits remain in the skin in order to have a valid skin biopsy test performed for dermatitis herpetiformis? Since it takes 1-2 years for dermatitis herpetiformis to heal on a gluten free diet and I just had a recent flare up, can I continue on my dairy free diet or should I resume eating non fat Greek yogurt for the next 3 weeks just for this skin biopsy?

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
