Help Finding gluten-free Turkey Breast To Roast.

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I tried two local supermarkets yesterday and didn't find a turkey breast (to roast, not deli) I felt safe buying. One that is listed in my Cecelia's Gluten-Free book has modified food starch and didn't specify what was in it. Any suggestions? I shop in the Syracuse, NY area and that includes Auburn and Skaneateles.

Thanks.

I would go to a Wegmans in your area. There should be one somewhere close by. Their meat dept is very helpful about checking their items. That's where I usually get my bird.

If you don't want self-basting or "injected" for other reasons that's fine, but I don't know of ANY unstuffed turkeys that have gluten and every time I ask for folks to name ones they've found WITH gluten -- as I'll do again now -- all I get is silence. IOW, turkeys are generally safe. Jenny-O, Butterball, Marval and on and on. Your turkey with MFS would say wheat if it were wheat, and you simply aren't going to find modified barley or rye starch.

Apparently the HoneyBaked Turkeys are now gluten free. Something they were not last year. You actually replied to that post. Your reply is quoted below. Obviously your insistance that all are gluten-free and you have never heard of one that isn't is not accurate.

Honeybaked Ham/turkey Is Now Gluten Free!

"Here's what the HB website FAQ says when you go to look at ingredients:

* You are now free to enjoy any of our signature meats (HoneyBaked Ham, Sliced & Glazed Turkey, HoneyBaked Deli Style Boneless Ham) without wheat gluten.

The ingredients used to clearly list wheat. Now the wheat is gone. "

I think Richard was referring to "raw uncooked turkeys", the kind folks spend hours roasting for TG. :D Raw meat containing gluten should be clearly labeled.

I'd consider the "HoneyBaked" turkey product a "lunch meat" or a type of "prepared meat", and there's lots of posts about prepared meats/lunch meat--many of them contain gluten.

I went to Wegman's yesterday and found a fresh turkey breast that is nothing but turkey and water. It is their brand and I found a small breast for under $12. An employee from the butcher shop was stocking turkeys and I asked him just for further information. He said it was nothing but turkey. I really am fortunate to live in Wegman's country. I did some regular shopping and enjoyed the number of their own labels that are marked gluten free. I have heard that someone in the Wegman family has celiac disease and I guess that is why they are so celiac friendly.

Yea they're a great company. I also heard that they have a celiac in the family. One thing I really like is they don't consider all distilled vinegars gluten-free. I am one of the unfortunate folks that reacts to distilled gluten grains and I was really happy when they started labeling their safe ones. If I ever relocate I'll decide where by doing a search for all their locations. :D

I don't know if you have a Giant in your area or not - I just went shopping with my mom and all of their Giant Quality turkeys were self-basting, etc, but marked Gluten Free and MSG Free. And those were the type you get for free afte 300 shopping points :)

I was indeed speaking of raw uncooked turkeys, not something like the Honeybaked turkeys. As I said, I've yet to find one that has gluten.
