What's The Deal With Ham?

Recommended Posts

What is the problem with ham not being gluten free? I don't think I've heard specifically what the concern is. I have a butcher willing to work with me, and if I can tell him what the scoop is, I can possibly have an Easter ham!

The gluten concern is not usually the ham itself (unless injected with gluten ingredients) rather it's the glazing that may contain gluten.

There was talk last year about "Honey Baked Hams" may NOW be using gluten free glazed. I have seen NO verification about that.

All about the glaze. If you get a ham from the store without glazing and glaze it yourself it is much safer, probably tastier too. Good Luck!

You may also check out Boar's Head, which carries a variety of gluten free ham deli products. It's quite possible that it will sell Easter hams labeled gluten free.

Okay - it's the glaze. I didn't really care for it sweet anyways. The saltier the better! Alright then. I am set - thanks much!

I'm also careful to read the label because some companies will state that the ham is processed in the same plant with wheat, etc, etc. I was going to buy bacon the other day, but noticed this disclaimer, so I didn't buy it. Would this concern anyone else?

I definately react to things made ont he same equipment, but am not entirely sure about things made in the same factory - I plan to do that experiment again in the future when feeling well.

So it concerns me.
