Is Wild Game Meat Gluten Free

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I know this probably sounds really stupid, but I have been recently diagnosed with celiac disease. I am a very big hunter and I was curious. After I have harvested an animal, the meat should be safe for me to eat correct, or not? ie: deer, turkey, ducks etc

Sorry hope this question doesn't offend any non-hunters or animal activist

I believe you should be fine. All fresh meat is generally ok. Sometimes companies do add things to their products (chicken injected with____), but since your hunting and eating it....it would be ok. B)

It should be fine. My husband hunts deer in and around my uncle's wheat farm. Once he accidentally cut the stomach of the deer while cleaning it, and out came wheat meal!! Even so, unless some of it had spilled onto the meat, it should be safe to eat. I don't hesitate to eat any of the wild game my husband brings home from my uncle's ranch, nor the beef my uncle raises which he sometimes feeds wheat to.

And... most wild game isn't even primarily wheat fed. So you should be fine.

My husband and I own a fine dining restaurant that features wild game. My chef always makes sure for me if the supplier is gluten free and it always is....enjoy your game!

You wild game is much less likely to be eating grains than commercial meats. Most wild game eat grasses, berries and so forth because that is in abundance in nature.

Personally, I think if more people ate wild game we'd have a lot fewer health issues than we currently do.

So true, buffalo burgers for instance has half the fat and more iron than cow burgers. Too bad its so expensive tho.

Check around and see if you can find someone locally who raises "buffalo" (bison). A bison yields so much meat, few farmers who raise it for personal use can use it all. Last year, we traded a breeding flock of sheep with another farm for a bunch of buffalo meat. You might find someone willing to sell you buffalo at a reasonable price, or willing to let you buy a share in an animal.
