Butterball Turkey Has Modified Food Starch!

ConAgra foods will list the top 8 allergens in which wheat is included.

From the looks of their policy on MFS I say you are safe :)

I don't like them saying that they don't have a source that lists the gluten content content of their products...if they don't know what's in it how do they expect us to eat it?

I haven't had a problem with ConAgra foods so far though.

Hi, I called Butterball a couple of weeks ago and asked about gluten in their turkeys. A rep. told me that their plain, frozen, unstuffed turkeys do not contain gluten. He said that they were injected with a "salt solution". I ended up ordering a fresh Butterball that will not be injected with anything. I'm sure, though, from a gluten standpoint that the frozen one will be fine.

I have a source that says their fresh turkey's are gluten-free but their gravy is not. I am annoyed at butterball, I e-mailed them to see if their turkey hotdogs are gluten free and they never e-mailed me back <_<

I'm not sure if this is helpful to you or not, but in the Clan Thompson books it says that Butterball fresh and frozen turkeys are gluten-free. Don't use the gravy packet that comes with the frozen turkeys. It was verified on 1/18/04. I know that's a bit outdated. I ate a Butterball turkey 3 weeks ago and did not have a reaction.

Carriefaith: I had the same experience with Butterball. I am not the turkey purchaser for Thanksgiving but if I were there's another brand in our A & P that actually says on label "GLUTEN FREE." I don't remember brand right now, but know it when I see it.

Butterball turkeys -- fresh or frozen -- are gluten-free. They always have been. The gravy is not.

I'm techno challenged so I don't know how to post Butterball's e-mail to me. They said they can't divulge the 'secret ingredients' for their frozen turkey products. They suggested I don't eat their frozen turkey or frozen turkey breast if I have a problem with gluten. Only their fresh products are guaranteed gluten free (that's them talking not me). They also did say not to eat their gravy regardless of what it comes in.

I think once you think you have gotten gluten from a product , it is hard to change your mind on that produce. Twice my husband had a problem with turkey & now he will probably never touch it again for fear of getting that sick again. He eats a lot of ham instead. It works for him.
