Gluten-free Vegetarian "meats"
0

18 posts in this topic

I've been a vegetarian for 11 years and gluten-free for a few weeks. I used to eat fake bacon, "chik" patties, and fake sausgaes all the time. I've search my local health food store and only see my usual brands which have wheat in them. I'd be willing to order meat substitues off the internet if I could just find a brand that doesn't contain gluten. Anyone have expereince with this? Are there gluten-free fake meats? Thanks for your help.

I think Tofu Pups "hot dogs" are gluten free...if you find them in a health food store, read the label to be sure. I haven't bought them in a long time, but I think at least they used to be gluten free, and hopefully still are.

Gardenburger's Black Bean burgers and (Soy) Flame Grilled Burgers are marked gluten-free right on the box, as are Franklin Farm burgers, and I find both in regular grocery stores. Whole Foods, etc. also have gluten-free burgers.

Quorn is also really good - the "turkey" roast and "chicken" tenders (not breaded) are both gluten-free.

I also love tofu pups.

Sol burgers are terrific and they are wheat/gluten-free and come in everything from Tex Mex to about three other varieties.

I have looked everywhere for a hotdog. The pups that someone mentioned are still produced in a facility that contains gluten and unforunately I'm that sensitive that I stay away from that stuff. I'm not really a vegetarian anymore although I only eat meat a few times a month, if that. I have thought long and hard about eating a real hotdog because I really want one (pregnancy craving) but I just can't do it.

Thanks everyone for the tips. I went shopping last night and found several "meats." I was assuming that since all of the fake meats I had looked at previously had gluten in them, that all fake meats would have gluten. But I was wrong and can finally have a "burger" again (on my gluten-free bread)!

I've been following a low fat vegan diet for six years and a gluten-free one for almost 2 weeks. So I'm in the same boat. I haven't gone searching for any fake meats. I've cut back since I read the following about isolated soy protein, which many of these products have:

If you prefer, here is a video of Dr. McDougall speaking on the same subject:

http://www.vegsource.com/articles2/mcdougall_igf1.htm

You have to listen to his discussion of IGF-1 and how dairy influences it before he addresses isolated soy protein.

Here is his list of burger mixes and meat substitutes that don't contain this ingredient:

I don't know which of these do not contain gluten at this point ...

You can also make falafels for burgers (some prepackaged mixes have wheat, but some are traditional and just use beans).

Thanks for the links, I've read one and thought it was very good and I agree totally. I decided to include soy milk and tofu in my diet this year and not eat red meat from cows anymore. I eat buffalo if I want to come close in making a few of my favorite recipes. I never digested the fake of isolated soy proteins anyway so I guess that won't be a problems for me. I had my share of luna bars though :P

Thanks and welcome to gluten free living,

I had a Sol Burger for supper. It was delicious and very much like how I remember a meat burger.

Is soy protein concentrate bad too? Or just soy isolate? Thank!

This is totally an old thread, but I wanted to share a link for a wonderful gluten free veggie meat that I found. We tried their chicken free strips and they were excellent! :)

    • I have 2 copies of DQ9. One from each parent.
    • Obviously from the outside it's difficult to comment, but if I were you I'd leave allergies for now and pursue definitive celiac testing via your doctor and preferably a gastroenterologist. They're the first port of call for digestion issues. If you do wind up being celiac it's possible that other allergies or intolerances would resolve or improve in any case once you've been on the diet for awhile. That's been my experience.   Ps note that wheat allergy is completely different and unrelated to celiac or non celiac gluten sensitivity. 
    • Thank you ps, it may be better if the thread title was changed as we now have two 'overwhelmed' topics. If it were 'Bile ducts and celiac?' then it may attract more users with direct experience?
    • Hello and welcome Maybe? From reading others accounts there's a big variation in how quickly gluten antibodies respond to the gluten diet. I did similar to you and my doctor said that 1 week back on should be enough to show up in a test, but he didn't know what he was talking about sadly... The 2 week figure refers to the endoscopy, for blood testing 8-12 weeks on gluten is more normal.  Basically if it comes back positive fine you have your answer. If its negative it may be a false negative due to your going gluten free beforehand. If you want to pursue a diagnosis then yes. Don't go off gluten again until you confirm that all testing is complete.  Keep a journal noting any symptoms, that may be useful to you later. More info here: There's some good info in the site faq: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/ I know how you feel! Partway through my gluten challenge I knew that too results notwithstanding. Fwiw I think you've found your answer. Good luck!
    • Learn more about testing for celiac disease here: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You do have to be on a gluten diet for ANY of the celiac tests (blood and biopsy) to work.  While the endoscopy (with biopsies) can reveal villi damage, many other things besides celiac disease can cause villi damage too: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-else-can-cause-damage-to-the-small-intestine-other-than-celiac-disease/ So, both the blood test and endoscopy are usually ordered.  There are some exceptions, but those are not common.
