Gluten Free Hams

Hi Everyone!

I couldn't find any information on here that gives a list of gluten free hams. I did see one for turkeys (very helpful!!!). Does anyone know of any hams that are gluten free? My aunt is bringing the ham this year and I want to make it as easy on her as possible and would like to provide her a long list to choose from. Here is what I have so far:

Hillshire Farms - Turkey and Ham both gluten free

Honeybaked Ham - NOT GLUTEN FREE

Hormel Cure 81 - Boneless and Spiral Cut hams are gluten free

Thank you in advance!!

I always get Publix Spiral ham. It's listed as gluten-free on some lists and I can attest to the fact that it does not make me sick. BUT, I usually just have the ham by itself. Combining too many different food items when I'm eating something like ham (that I am not used to eating) wreaks havoc on my system. I have some ham and a little mashed potatoes - or some ham and a little bit of a vegetable.

I like Cooks. I've bought their ham slices as well as their larger hams.

Hams are almost without exception gluten-free as long as they aren't pre-glazed, like the Honeybaked. If there is wheat in the glaze, both the FDA and USDA REQUIRE that it be listed. Just like with turkey, all you need to do is look at the ingredients.

my mom gets the spiral cut hams from Sam's club and throws away the glaze packet and makes her own glaze. I've never gotten sick from it.

Would you mind sharing your mom's recipe?

I think she just uses brown sugar and honey... I'll try to remember to ask her later.

We don't eat ham very often because I can never figure out what to serve with it. Ideas?

"We don't eat ham very often because I can never figure out what to serve with it. Ideas?"

Potato salad is great. Green beans. Cole slaw. Sweet potatos. Salad. Anything that's gluten-free really.

One of the things I've learned about being gluten-free is to eat whatever whenever, as long as it's gluten-free. Got some leftover chicken or tuna salad and no real breakfast in mind? Hey, lots of good protein there. Same with nuts. Spread some hummus or peanut butter on a rice cake.

I know that doesn't have much to do with ham, but once you have diet restrictions, you need to look at everything. A friend of mine who has traveled to the far east for business talks about how they eat ANYTHING for any meal. Noodles, fish, any dinner leftover. This is MY favorite breakfast and lunch.

Chop up leftover ham and add to any egg dish, any bean dish or soup, make ham salad, make casseroles with rice and spinach and swiss cheese, make halushka: finely ribboned cabbage fried with caraway seeds, onions, and paprika and served with ham, bacon, or sausage and noodles (gluten-free of course), grind up the ham and use like ground beef for ham loaf. Cook the bone and any leftover meat on it for soup stock, especially good with beans, carrots, potatoes, and tiny dumplings (beat one egg, add a little salt and gluten-free flour mix until it hold together like a soft dough, then crumble into boiling soup - the Pennsylvania Dutch call these rivvels). I just baked a 12-pound ham (shank half) and I now have a dozen or so little meal-sized packets in the fridge along with a meaty bone for future soup. And at $0.99 a pound it beat the heck out of any of the ham slices at the store.

    • Hi Jennifer, This thread might have some information that would help you.   Your doctors are pretty lame IMHO.  Perhaps you can find a celiac group in your area that has local meetings for support.  They might also suggest a different doctor who knows how to treat celiac patients.  
    • All the above posts are full of good advice. What I'd like to add is, if you have coeliac disease and continue to eat gluten, you run the risk of other autoimmune diseases in the future as well as osteoporosis, malnutrition and even cancer, so even if you had no symptoms at the beginning, and may also not have any symptoms if you eat gluten (not all coeliacs do), the damage is still being done to your gut and the rest of your body, so please be aware of this.
    • You could possibly try calling the places in Texas and Chicago to see if they can refer you somewhere that does accept your insurance. Oh good luck to you!
    • Hi Jennifer and welcome CyclingLady has given you some good advice above. You want certainty and that's entirely understandable. Go back to your doctors and explain that you need to know a little more and hopefully they will engage positively with you. If they don't, then do pursue a second opinion.  I just wanted to address your last paragraph quoted above. The problem with celiac, or in my case non celiac gluten sensitivity, is that it presents or doesn't present in so many different ways. It can do hidden damage which may take many years to become apparent. It can impact in ways which are incredibly difficult to recognise or isolate.  I am 'lucky' in that the way that gluten impacts on me is far worse than any mental or social isolation brought upon by the diet, so motivation is easy for me, even without the certainty of a celiac diagnosis, there really is no alternative, I don't think I'd last long on a gluten diet now. But I can well understand how difficult it may be to stay honest on the diet if you don't have any symptoms to deal with. The diet can be isolating, there does become a distance between you and 'normal' people. Who would want to deal with all that if they didn't have to? If you aren't satisfied with your doctors  responses and choose to go back onto gluten I suggest you find another doctor and go back into the diagnostic process and properly exclude celiac, including a scope. Otherwise you could be taking a big risk with yr long term health. You may find that this process supplies you with an answer as if your diagnosis was correct your response to the reintroduction of gluten may surprise you, or not of course! best of luck!     
    • There is currently not any enzymes you take that will get rid of gluten, they are working on a promising one to reduce symptoms but all others out there right now are a bust and will not help you much if it all with gluten exposure, Celiac is a auto immune disease, your reacting to the proteins of gluten and it is attacking them and your own body.  I do suggest a digestive enzyme if you have food issues in general to help break them down. But this will not fix gluten exposure, reduce damage from gluten, or make gluten eating safe by any means. These current ones on the market are FAD ones target at healthy people and helping them with general digesting of gluten proteins but will not help you if you have celiacs to eliminate gluten reaction symptoms.
