Gluten Free Meats

Recommended Posts

I read somewhere recently that farm raised fish wasn't gluten free because of added dye or something. I also read that some stores meat section(Wal-mart) inject things in their meats that make them glutenized. If someone could help clear the topic of which type of fish i should buy, and if chicken with added broth and natural ingredients are afe i would really appreciate it

Meat and fish in it's natural state, is obviously free of gluten. In the beginning, it's best to stick with the most natural.

In the US any additives injected into the meat of fish, if it contains wheat, it must by law be listed. Rye, barley or malt are not frequent additives into these products, but do no have to be listed.

Natural Flavors, also would be required to list wheat, but it is always good to contact the company and verify it's gluten status. For instance, Perdue Roasted Chicken, lists Natural Flavors, but no gluten and it can be verified as gluten free by their website.

A few weeks ago I emailed Walmart's ground beef supplier, Cargill Solutions, and asked about the "natural flavor" they add to the ground beef. They said it is a rosemary tincture and it is gluten free.

The USDA requires that any meat additive with nutritional value be clearly listed. This includes ANY grain, so all you have to do is read the label. I definitely prefer wild caught, though.
