In Topic: Gluten In Lunchmeats

I'm sorry, but this is just untrue in the U.S. Virtually no processed meat has gluten. Oscar Meyer, Hillshire Farm, Boar's Head, Kroger, Buddig. All either safe or will clearly list gluten. I can't name a hot dog or a salami or pepperoni that has gluten.

If you know otherwise, please provide a list of the processed meats that absolutely have gluten.


Richard, I am not trying to argue with you. Gluten and Milk products are in most procssed deli meats. Especially milk. Dietz and Watson is only meat in my Shaws or Hannafords that actually states GLUTEN Free(sure their are many more). If all meats were gluten free or dairy free why does one mfg make claim this and no one else seems to. Also I looked at about ten packages of Nathans Polish Kelbasa(sp) and all contained wheat as did two other MFG's. Milk is huge part of processed meat I had no idea gluten had any business in MEat lol but it does. My mother has had this disease for 30 years and went through all these issues as well. I am sure things have changed with some mfg's but saying it is untrue is only misleading people on this site. I suggest we look at as questions as you mentioned but just beware it is in SOME meats

Also, in the U.S. if ANY food contains milk, including pepperoni sticks, it has to be clearly listed. Just read the ingredients.

Most pepperoni contains stater culture which is milk product and does not state contains milke product.

In Topic: How Long Before Improvement?

Hello everyone!

How long were you gluten free before you saw improvement? We received confirmation of Celiac for my son (age 4.5) on March 25. We have been doing our best to be strictly gluten free since then. His main symptom is diarrhea and we have seen no improvement in this department whatsoever! One day he did have a somewhat 'normal' stool, only to be followed by some of the worst diarrhea that we have ever experienced!!

We are switching is multivitamin since the ever-so-not helpful company will not give me an answer whether or not it is gluten free. Other than that, I can't imagine where he would be getting gluten. I was hoping we would see some improvement over Spring break so I would have a bit of an idea if he was getting gluten at school.

Am I being too impatient or do you think we are getting cross contamination from somewhere?

Thanks for your help!


gluten-free for three weeks now and stools are on and off and far as substance. I mainly go once a day. I am confirmed celiac through blood and Endo. My issue is belly being constantly bloated and gurgling. That has yet to subside. Working on new strategies for that though like lowering lactose intake.

Why did you think your kids can't have these? I know of almost no lunchmeats that have gluten.


Beward most processed meats contain gluten. it is a processing agent. Ask Deli counter person for Gluten free meats. They are out there. Like Boars head. Stuff is everywhere. Look at most peperoni sticks that actually contain milk products and no one would ever know

From Website

Q. How much gluten does this contain?
A. We do not add any gluten to our products. However, we cannot guarantee that all raw materials are 100% gluten-free.

I have heard this alot with products and the cross contamination can still mess with people.

CEntrum seems to be good, although they are expensive

2. Is Centrum gluten-free and is it safe for people with celiac disease to take?
Yes, Centrum is gluten-free and suitable for individuals with celiac disease.
