My Mother buys pepperoni sticks or sometimes already sliced pepperoni in a bag to use in a spaghetti dish along with broccoli. I'm afraid to eat it even with gluten-free noodles because I don't know if pepperoni is gluten-free. Anyone know this? Also does anyone know of a gluten-free grated parmesan cheese?

Given that most pepperoni packages include "spices" as an ingredient, I think you really just have to call the company to confirm.

As for the cheese... The easiest option is to just get a block of fresh parmesean, and grate some as you need it. (The small pointy bits on a box grater are perfect for it.) This also gets you much better tasting parmesean! ;-) Not to mention you can try mixing it up with percornio or asagio as well.

I have had sliced pepperoni, HORMEL brand and did not have a problem with it. Matter of fact I think I read somewhere that it is gluten-free. Also my daughter eats KRAFT grated parmesan cheese and never had a problem with it either.

Hope this helps :D

I grate my own parmesean (much better taste) but Kraft and Kroger are definitely gluten-free.

I live in New Albany /Columbus Ohio and have just found a store call Whole Foods. Unreal!!! There are isle and isle of gluten free products. Maybe I can live with this disease after all. Anyway Hormel is gluten free and there are other pepperoni products out there. Turkey peperoni however is your best bet. Also does anyone have a good recipe for pizza crust? I herd of one but it has hemp seed and hemp oil in a buckwheat batter. Sounds a little strange but if it works it works, Also does anyone know of a gluten free italian sausage?

Thanks I h8 this!! Y-me?

This thread is ancient news. Products change in 8 years.

Look in the recipe section, use the google function ( in the top right corner) to find many pizza crust recipes.

I was actually told by someone selling gluten free pizza that while pepperoni itself is gluten free, certain companies add gluten during the curing process. I think your best bet would be to look up info on the company, or contact that company yourself. Hormel does state that it is safe.

Aria, 

This is a pretty old thread, so I don't expect any of the old members to respond.  But, it is nice to remind others to do their homework by contacting the manufacturer -- especially if you have doubts about their products containing gluten.

Gluten in pepperoni is possible, but in my experience, quite rare. I have heard this, but have never found a confirmed case (no pun intended, but if  there is gluten it is likely in the casing, not the sausage itself). Hormel (available in he US) and Piller's (in Canada) are definitely gluten-free. Both are so labeled on the package.

    • If you are lucky enough to travel in the Spanish-speaking world, just about anywhere you go, you will very likely run into a some version of chicken and rice, or ‘Arroz con Pollo’ as it appears on countless menus. This Cuban-style version relies on annatto oil to give it a red color. You can make your own annatto oil by putting achiote chili seeds in vegetable oil and heating it up for a few minutes over the stove. Cool and store. This version of chicken and rice is tasty, gluten-free and keeps well in the freezer. View the full article
    • I was diagnosed with celiac at the end of October. My DGP IgA was tested September 12th and was 127. I just got it retested and it was 135. I have been eating gluten free since I was diagnosed. I thought the numbers should be going down. How long does it usually take for the numbers to start dropping? Right now I feel like I must be getting cross contamination somewhere.

    • Lex_, Again I am afraid Ennis_Tx is right here. Ennis_tx eats right and is eating all the right things and still has to take/supplement with Magnesium. The magnesium is a clue?  We need magnesium to make energy. I like to say as chlorophyll is to photosynthesis for the plant so is Magnesium for/to the Animal(s). Meaning we will run down without it. It is said "we waste away without enough Magnesium" Dr. Carolyn Dean wrote the book "The Magnesium Miracle" because people genuinely feel terrific when they take it. they are able to make energy again and function properly but the question remains  why? are we low in it the first place if we need it so much. Iron plays the same role in the blood/respiration but people still get IDA. It turns out low stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and Iron. see this link about the role of gastric acid in Iron absorption. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7286584/ How do we know this.  . . well it is has been studied and proven. look no further than the FDA box warning on PPI's entitled "FDA Drug Safety Communication: Low magnesium levels can be associated with long-term use of Proton Pump Inhibitor drugs (PPIs)" https://www.fda.gov/drugs/drugsafety/ucm245011.htm now this takes about 6 months of use to become low in magnesium but being low in stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and why many people have to take it at 2x to 3x the RDA to get the desired effect. In fact the FDA says only stopping PPI's will reverses this condition.  Obviously  taking higher amount of Magnesium can help alleviate some of these symptom's but only raising the stomach acid will completely alleviate the condition. quoting "Although both patients' hypomagnesemia partially resolved with intravenous replacement, in both cases discontinuation of PPI treatment was necessary to stop ongoing symptoms and to stop magnesium loss." Hypomagnesimia is critically low Magnesiums akin to IDA. here is a thread about IDA and why this is so . . .  low stomach acid leads to low Iron levels. I think it will help explain why Celiac's often have to take Magnesium to help with their chronic fatigue symptom's. I hope this is helpful but when I helped my stomach acid levels my Magnesium begin to be better absorbed from the food I was eating. Nuts are good Magnesium sources especially Cashews and Almonds. So is chocolate hence Ennix_tx cocoa nibs etc. . . ***** this is not medical advice but I know taking Magnesium Citrate helped my energy levels. posterboy by the grace of God, 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things”
