Help! Glaze For Ham

Recommended Posts

This is my first holiday being gluten-free and i'm baking a ham and it hit me, THE GLAZE????? here is a list of the ingredients:

sugar, Fructose, Gelatin, Spices including papkrika, dextrose, Honey Powder (Honey, MALTODEXTRIN)

Natural and artficial flavor, Lecithin, with not more than 20% Silicon dioxide and soybean oil added as processing agents.

the maltodextrin catches my eye, for some reason i thought that was on a NO NO list. Any help is appreciated, Thanks, Lori

Can you call the company and ask? I would question the natural flavoring. Be sure to ask about barley derived ingredients and gluten. Wheat is required to be listed. There are many recipies for ham glaze on recipezaar.com as well as other places. They are very easy to make and use.

In the US, maltodextrin is generally not a concern. It is almost always derived from corn. In the rare instances where it is derived from wheat, it must be clearly stated....Maltodextrin (wheat).

What is the name of the company? Certain companies have policies of not hiding any gluten.

I've never had a problem with Maltodextrin (in USA). Neither with "natural flavorings" - Clan Thompson Food Smartlist says that it is generally Gluten Free but may not be if in a meat item. Since this is the glaze, it is probably ok. Calling company would be good.

What is the brand? Also, I've had to make my own glaze a few times and it wasn't very hard. Brown Sugar/Molasses, honey, orange juice, and any number of spices of your choosing (ginger, etc).
