Ingredient statement leads me to believe it's gluten-free.

Does anyone eat this and it's OK (gluten-free)?

(I limit post to NJ, PA & NY as it's a regional item, but if you're in another state & you can purchase it there - I was under impression that it's not obtainable outside of this area -- and you know about this being gluten-free and use it, please feel free to add to the thread).

Hi, I grew up in NJ and remember eating Taylor Pork Roll all the time as a kid and in the high school cafeteria! I live in Virginia now, and can't get it, but miss it! I went to their website and they have nothing about ingredients, but be aware they are regulated only by USDA and not FDA so apparently don't have the same labeling laws apply to them (I found that out the hard way with turkey and chicken - products that are predominantly meat are regulated by USDA and not FDA). I've emailed their customer service POC and asked the question. If/when I get a reply I will post it here! I may even order some online if it is gluten-free.

I wrote to them 2 years ago and did not get a response. Thanks for telling me about FDA vs. USDA because I was thinking that it was definitely gluten-free. Let's cross our fingers that it is gluten-free! That'd be wonderful!! YUM!

A hint at maybe good news coming!

I checked the Clan Thompson Smart Food List and all "Taylor Ham" made by the Taylor Provisions Co, in Trenton (I checked, it's the same company) is Gluten Free, per the company's reports to Clan Thompson (actually Lani Thompson) in May of 2007.

SO, if all their "ham" is gluten-free we may find out that the pork roll is also Gluten Free!!

I can't wait!

Franceen: I think it's the only product which Taylor makes (Taylor Pork Roll). I also checked my Clann Thompson and didn't find anything on it.....I'll check again.

Search on "Taylor" in Clan Thompson (I have the newest update) and it's the only thing that comes up.

The website : http://www.jerseyporkroll.com/contact.htm

also talks about them as being "Taylor Ham" (the title of the page of the link is "Contact Jersey Port Roll or Taylor Ham".

So, I believe it is the same company - especially since the phone number in Clan Thompson reverse lookups to them - in Piscataway on Stelton Road!! (I once lived in an apt just off of Stelton Rd - I'm from Plainfield!)

But we'll see what they reply if they do.

This link to their home page clearly shows all the products including Taylor Ham.....

I guess they USED to be in Trenton? And are now in Piscataway?

Anyway, I'm HOPING it's ALL gluten-free!!!!!

Yummy

The package I have in fridge says "Trenton" however I wouldn't be surprised if they have their executive offices in Piscataway. I think the plant is in Trenton. It has to be the same company because no other company can use the TAYLOR PORK ROLL name due to trademark infringement....

When I have a moment this week, I'll call the Piscataway Chamber of Commerce & ask them if Taylor is a commercial inhabitant and if it's the same as the Taylor Pork Roll of Trenton....they'll probably know.

Taylor Pork Roll is made by Taylor Provisions in Trenton, NJ. I just spoke with Eric at Taylor Provisions (609-392-1113), which confirmed that they don't add any wheat, barley, rye, or oats when making their pork roll. He said they tell customers that the only potential wheat is from what the animal was fed, which I understand is not an issue, correct?

Correct....maybe he was trying to make a joke....

I note that Clann Thompson states it's gluten-free .....too bad it wasn't healthy for you too!! :rolleyes: I thought it was.....
