Hot Dogs Or Marshmallows?

Recommended Posts

I cannot find a hot dog that does not cause problems. WEllshire gluten free all beef are the latest attempt--now i'm dealing with the usual gluten meltdown. It's either that or the Kraft jet-puffed marshmallows, with blue #1. But they have never caused this reaction before.

anyone else experience problems with either one?

thanks,

Liz

I found that we have been getting glutened from Kraft shredded cheese. It is the only thing that my daughter ate regularly to cause her numbers to stay elevated. Anyway the reason I am telling you this is that when I talked to Kraft they stated as always that the clearly marked gluten on their packages but when I pushed further about cc they would not garuntee that anything they make is gluten-free. They just said that the mark the packages. Although I have talked to them a few different times and the answer is always just a little different. However this last time they wouldn't committ to anything, when I took her off of Kraft cheese, her numbers, which we have been struggling with for awhile now, drop 30 points in one month. Good luck and I hope you find some answers.

There is some chemical in some processed foods that I have a horrible reaction to. Maybe all the hot dogs you've tried have one thing in common?

Make sure it doesn't say "modified food starch" on the ingredients list. ALmost all brands do. I can't remember what kind I normally buy - but I do know we have never had a problem when we avoid the "not sure" ingredients like "food starch, spices, flavorings.etc..." pretty much anything that is not listed outright. WE have never had a problem with any kind of marshmallow.

In more than 7 years I've found just one hot dog that wasn't gluten-free, and that was Nathan's. The wheat in it is clearly marked.

I've never found a regular marshmallow that isn't gluten-free.

That's not a guarantee that there couldn't be CC. Few facilities are completely gluten-free, although a number of lines within the facility might be. In addition, manufacturers obviously don't have complete control over any ingredient they don't make themselves.

In the U.S. modified food starch from wheat would have to list wheat. I guess that technically it could be made from barley or rye, but I've never seen it or heard of it. MFS is almost always corn or perhaps tapioca.

We've tried 3 different kinds of hot dogs (Hebrew National, Ball Park, and I think the first was Boar's Head - all gluten free) and my son has had diarrhea the next day. As we've only been gluten-free since Dec. and still learning every day, I wasn't sure if it was really the hotdogs or if it was something else. After the last try I have decided there's a pretty good chance there is something in hotdogs that doesn't agree with him (I don't believe any of the hotdogs had gluten from CC or otherwise, but something else he doesn't like). He's never been a huge hotdog fan and still isn't, so it's no big deal for us. I just thought I'd pass along our experience.

Thanks for everyone's thoughts. I don't think it's a gluten thing with the hot dogs...most hot dogs list "spice" or "natural flavorings" and this is where i'm guessing it's an MSG issue with my daughter. I've looked at the ingedients for Hebrew National and I can't remember what it was but I know there is something in them that I wouldn't buy...

My daughter reacts alot to food colorings...usually red and yellow, and I think there's only a little blue#1 in marshmallows...but I'm guessing that's it, combined perhaps with the "spice " in the hot dogs she had that day.

We also both had gluten-free brownies from whole foods last week that were delicious, but gave us both irritability...they use soy flour so that was probably the culprit there.

It gets tiring always trying to figure out which little ingredient is causing the problems besides gluten!
