Are Trader Joe's Brined Organic Whole Chickens Gluten Free?

Recommended Posts

I am trying to post the following question and cannot figure out how to doe it. Please help:

Are Trader Joe's Brined Organic Whole Chickens gluten free? I got sick after eating some but am not sure it was due to gluten. The store was not sure and customer service has not gotten back to me.

You just posted a question! You should have put it in the product section... But it works the same way. I'll move it over there.

When you are new, your first few posts have to wait for a mod to read and approve them.

I'll try to get Admin to change the title to reflect your question.

Now, I'm going to answer your question. :)

I don't know about TJ's chicken but I am betting, if they are uncooked, they will be gluten-free or have no gluten ingredients.... Just from past experience.

I changed the title, but have no information on TJ's birds. As Karen said, they are unlikely to be a problem.

Thank-you. I wonder why it made me sick...hmmmm. Maybe msg in the natural flavor. I tested a bit of it again today to see if that was it and I got sick again. Frustrating....Oh well, I will do a plain one next time! Thanks again.

Do you have Crockpot? You can cook a turkey breast in it and it's delicious! Also, Costco has rotisserie type turkey breasts that's are gluten-free and delicious ( I have been told). I have some family members with sodium issues so I usually start as fresh and unprocessed as possible.

I  can't  answer  your  question  about TJ"s  chicken  but  the  word "Brined"" stuck out  to me... Again  I  don't  know  their  brining solution  but  I do  know  when some  people  "brine" meats  they  add  in  beer, &  such...  I  would  doubt  that  would  be a factor  a  Trader Joe's  but  the brining  solution  could  contain a gluten product.....

I don't  know  if  their  rotisserie chickens are  even  safe.. Costco's  is  &  Sam's  is  ... Costco   is  our  favorite....

YesI  I got sick from that chicken too!  I made bone broth with it and got sick when I ate it for lunch (I drink bone broth just about everyday but usually get my chicken from Whole Foods) and I never suspected it to be the broth (had pieces of the chicken with the broth) so I ate it again with dinner and got even sicker.  I was absolutely fine before eating it and it since then it has triggered my colitis and I have been in a full blown flare for three weeks.  It only takes a slight trigger and the whole system goes crazy.  I also asked about it at Trader Joe's after the fact and they said "we don't know - better not buy it if you are worried", I wish I would have asked before hand.
