Tyson Bacon ~ No Ingredient List?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I mean I know that it is pork. It says "Hickory Smoked", but both DH and I looked and saw no ingredient list. I wanted to makes sure it was gluten-free before eating it. I did email Tyson, but they said it could take 5-7 business days to respond. Anyone have any info on that?

Sargento shredded cheese lists these ingredients....cheddar cheese (pasteurized milk, cheese, culture, salt, enzymes, annato (vegetable color)), potato starch, and powdered cellulose, natamycin. Reason I am curious here is that I ate this yesterday and had some tummy issues.......I thought it was gluten-free, but wanted to double check. I could be having some issues with dairy too, so I may just eliminate it for a month or 2 to see if that helps. I have been able to do cheese up until now though (been gluten-free for 2.5 weeks and saw a huge improvement almost immediately).

Thanks in advance for any advice, I really appreciate it! I learn so much from these boards!

I think the rule is that if it is 100% something, then you don't need an ingredient list (i.e., sugar is 100% sugar, so there is no list). I don't know if this is applicable to this product? It was the only idea I had.

I believe that Sargento cheese is fine-I use it all the time. There are many people who have trouble with dairy until they are fully healed (and some have trouble after they have been accidentally glutened) --- myself included. Its so mean-I can't eat lots of dairy after I've been glutened. Its one of my favorite foods! If you have only been gluten-free 2.5 weeks (I'm sure it seems like an eternity though), your body is almost def still healing!

Good luck.

Thank you very much! I think I remember reading something like that a long time ago too, now that you mention it. I think the Hickory Smoked threw me off...figuring that they must have added some flavor.

I think I am going to go DF for a while and see if that doesn't help. That is going to kill me, as I put cheese on everything, but I am willing to give it a try to see if it may be part of the issue.
