Has anyone ever used or researched Coleman meat products? I am always so careful about everything I eat. I had some Coleman polish kilbasa in the freezer that I bought at Earth Fare. Hubby made it for breakfast. I happily ate two pieces from then remembered looking at Coleman hot dogs at the store yesterday and not seeing a gluten free label. So I dug the package out of the trash and realized there was no gluten free marking on the package anywhere. While there are no gluten ingredients called out in the ingredients, there  is powdered vinegar and powdered celery. Their website doesn't seem to have any info on it. Paranoid I'm going to have a reaction ?.

Sounds gluten-free to me.

If you did not see any gluten listed, I would relax.

^Them? They say gluten-free and even make gluten-free nuggets, looks safe even by my extreme standards. >.> Thinking that sasuage from them might make a good broth, I might not be able to digest meats, but I sure as hell can make a good broth with it. 

Thanks for bringing up this company pain to find a company that does not use corn starch or syrup in meats. I found a new meat to perhaps work into cooking for others, and making broths with.

Thanks for the research and thoughts everyone! I did notice they had the gluten feee symbol on their website but when I went to the specific product it wasn't on there with the others (free of nitrates etc) and it made me nervous. They also didn't have any gluten info in their FAQ section of their website. I'm pretty strict about what I eat and buy, but apparently I didn't look at the package close enough when I bought it. Maybe the tag said gluten free at the store and I went with it. I'm just going to believe it is safe and hopefully I will be ok! I may email them for future reference. I hope that you can use this meat to make your broth! I'm not sure where they would have it in your specific area but I think I bought it at Earth Fare. Giant Eagle sells their hot dogs.

Yep I already called my local HEB to ask about having them stock the Polish Kielbasa, Ennis where I live is a Czech town. >.< yet none of the kielbasa in this town is safe for me to even use for flavoring. I am so looking forward to making a nice broth out of it, going to then use it for seasoning stir fries, making sauces, and just for soups.
