Hot Dogs That Are Gluten Free
0

24 posts in this topic

I was told by the company that our old favorite local hot dogs were gluten free when I called. They lied :angry: I was severely ill from it. It was koegel's beef frankfurters for anyone here in case they arent aware. The person I talked was acting like a jerk but I dismissed it for hopefully some helpful information but I had a horrible reaction from it.

What kind of hot dogs do you use? Im hoping there are some. I did a search and couldnt find a thing. We are a hot dog loving family, I know not healthy but my dh and daughter love them.

Thanks

Boar's Head Hot dogs are gluten-free and they label them as such!

Applegate Farms hot dogs are also gluten-free (I get these at either Whole Foods or my local Health Food Store)

Hebrew National -- all the way!

They just taste better than the other hot dogs (and no fillers) --

I think the Applegate Farms Hot Dogs taste weird and they cost like $7 a pack!

Thanks everyone :)

The bbq went great. Also I was looking at the store and bought the oscar mayer kind because of dh's request. They have no fillers also listed on the package. They were good also.

I realize this is a 4 year old thread, but it is the only one that I find under the name "Koegel".

I was looking for information on Koegel's Viennas, which used to be an essential summer food for my boys. Here are the emails I've sent and received from the company.

Mr. Koegel,

Thank you for the quick response.

I'm aware that gluten can be in some flavorings and spices, and also

that a product can be contaminated with gluten if the same machinery is

used to make a different product that contains gluten, even if the

machinery is cleaned.

It is very important that my son and I never eat anything with even a

trace of gluten because it makes us very ill. Koegel's Viennas are my

son's favorite food and I would like to continue buying them for him.

Dear Ms. P:

You're welcome and I understand. There should be no problem eating our

Viennas. There is no gluten in the flavorings or spices and they are

produced on clean equipment.

Again, thank you for wanting to continue to eat our product.

Sincerely,

John C. Koegel

I really think that it's too risky to eat these for us, since this company is not huge I suspect they make things that contain gluten in the same lines that make the frankfurters and Viennas. I was going to email him back and say that there is a difference between "clean" and no possible contamination issues, but decided to just go try to find Hebrew National hot dogs. I hope my boys like them as much as they like Viennas!

Unless anyone here has any updated information, that is! I still have not broken the news about Viennas not being safe and am just dreading it.

I just (like five minutes ago) ate Boars Head Natural Casing Beef Franks with Boars Head Vidalia Onions and French's Yellow Mustard on Udi's Bread. The bread fell apart when I bent it into a Hot Dog bun shape BUT just the taste of the franks, onions and mustard was enough to make me VERY Happy. Boar's Head Sauerkraut is also gluten-free (I believe - I'm new to this) so you could do that too.

By the way does anyone know WHEN exactly Udi's Hot Dog buns are coming out and also on the Udi's bread. It was defrosted when I got it, can I re-freeze it now? Thanks!!

I believe Viennas are what is served at Target. They are in fact gluten-free. Actually any and all hot dogs I have seen these days are gluten-free. The one I know of that did used to contain wheat no longer does. Can't remember the name of it now.

I rarely buy them but when I do they are usually uncured beef. Can't remember the brand.

Nathan's. They used to have gluten, but are now gluten-free.

Why don't they get rid of these old, unusable threads? There's a lot of information on these boards that is totally out of date and just plain incorrect regarding the gluten status of some foods.

Oh, I hope hope hope the Viennas you're talking about are Koegel! I believe the brand is only in the Michigan area. Is this the brand you're talking about? Koegel's Viennas are indeed safe? This would be SUCH good news to a gal who desperately NEEDS good news this week. I've already had three bread baking failures, but that's a whole 'nuther discussion. B)

I think the "older" threads here are invaluable. It is a treasure trove for those of us just starting out. I was able to see that date and knew the thread was old.

Originally, I saw that someone had eaten Koegel's beef franks and got sick. So the seed of doubt was sewn in my mind as to the safety of Viennas - since it's a small company and they probably make everything in the same pot, so to speak. Since no one here in my house gets falling-down-on-the-floor sick from eating gluten foods, there is no way for me to know for sure if they are safe or not by just eating them. So, when the company guy says they are safe but doesn't seem to display a good knowledge of what constitutes safe, I would rather just avoid the food rather than risk going backwards with this. That was why I posted here on this thread, to see if anyone had any updated information.

Thumann's hot dogs are my absolute favorite and they are certified gluten free by the GFCO (check for the logo). It is rare that I eat something like a hot dog, but now that summer is upon us and there are bbq's popping up all over the place... well, sometimes it's ok to treat yourself :)

    • If you hear an ice cream truck playing morbid music, grab your money and run!  They sell roasted sweet potatoes from a truck.  Live on those.   They are delicious. Eat them as you would eat a candy bar.  It's just sweet potato.  Maybe 300-500 yen for a big one.  They are sold by weight.  served hot and ready.  I have purchased enough for a few days at a time and eaten them cold after refrigeration and loved them as well.  300 Yen per potato so plan accordingly incase  you hear that truck.
    • I have been to amusement parks & stadiums that don't really have gluten-free except ice cream, chips, that sort of stuff.  And, when called or emailed in advance, I am given a note to bring my own food.& eat outside with my family.  But that is different than a restaurant that is not allowed to have outside food in. From what I have seen, this family didn't handle the whole situation well.  If they had brought a small discrete lunch in, waited until the others had their food, then pull it out and not made a big fuss, they probably would have been fine.  I have also been told that this tavern does do a safe gluten-free meal.... 
    • So sorry it is difficult.  There is soy sauce (made with wheat) and fish flavoring in everything!   I too have neurological damage from 40 years of gluten.  I can feel your pain.  Do you want me to look for a base contact for you?   I still have a connection at my Okinawa church which is near Camp Foster.
    • I find it amusing I brought this up to point out that discrimination is not something that should happen to those of us with this disease and if handled well we can compromise by bringing our own food where allowed and calling and contacting places prior to going explaining and setting things up. In this way we do not end up feeling out of place and can try to live a more normal life with social interactions and gatherings if all is handled well. I am unsure if this goal was met or blown out of the water . One point I think this applies also and has for me so far it seems, is theme parks. Places like Six Flags where your stuck in their grounds, and they can not guarantee food safety. I found that with my celiac diagnoses I can talk to them and be allowed to bring my own food into the park. This not only allows me to head out and eat but also saves me a ton of money >.< as expensive as gluten-free food is theme park food is like another 3x that. They just put a medical sticker on my cooler and I store it in a locker in the park and go back to it for snacks and food. Odd thing from years past.....I have a life time member ship to Six Flags, But I can not go unless someone else is with me for when I get anemic, or sick so I go once a year if even that (not gone this year or last year). My other option is to book a hotel near by or sleep in my car. (I get deathly tired at night and pass out around 9pm). There is also the lines I have to buy a flash pass to skip the lines, or I have panic attacks being unable to move for hours waiting for a ride.  
    • I lived in Okinawa for 4 years prior to diagnosis.  My son however tried to go gluten free during that time.  His school had no idea what I was trying to say and could do nothing for him.  Everyone eats school lunch. Period.  It was difficult.  If I went back I would eat the percooked hard boiled eggs from Lawson's or your nearest convenient store.  You may feel more comfortable rinsing them before eating them.  I would also eat the plain rice onigri.  If you know the contents of the mayo you could eat mayo/fish onigri. Stay away from the ones that use soy sauce.  Maybe look at tins of fish while you are there to see if they contain soy sauce. The other idea is to connect you with someone on a base.  They have great American grocery stores with lots of options and American doctors and hospital.  They deal with American insurance companies.  I looked into that for my father in law who came to visit while terminal.  He had postal insurance and was 100% covered in Okinawa on base.  Do you have military connections there?   Camp Foster or Kadena grocery stores are the big ones with the best selection.  The others may be too small for your needs.
