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:

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! :)

    • Update: I have been taking Chanca Piedra (specifically, Royal Break-Stone, by Whole World Botanicals) on an empty stomach in the morning for the liver-gall bladder and surprisingly my lips are almost normal. I know the peeling lips may be caused by different issues but I hope this info helps someone.
    • Hi Cristiana, I'm so sorry that you are still not feeling well.  When do you go back to your Dr? I wish I could help more, but it's so hard to know what was what when I was on the PPI.  I was diagnosed with celiac and h. Pylori on the same day so I was already feeling awful.  Then I was put on 2 antibiotics with the  PPI.  I do remember feeling terribly nauseous, but just assumed it was the antibiotics.  When I started tapering, I still wasn't feeling well.  It really took months before I started to feel decent.  But I assume that it was the celiac. I really hope you start to see some improvement...((((hugs))))
    • @scorpio it has now been almost 2 years and I am curious if you ever found something that worked for you. My boyfriend suffers from EC as well and I am desperate to find a resolution for his sake. He's been dealing with it for over a year now and it is taking a toll on his work and social life.   Any updates would be helpful
    • I am going through the diagnosis stage as well. My family has strong history for celiac disease, and while I always had discomfort and other symptoms ( some of which i didnt know about) I wasn't tested until recently because I was DEATHLY afraid of needles. The results are highly positive but I am still getting a biopsy in early August. From what I have learned about it is that the endoscopy is beneficial to looking for not only signs of celiac but also other diseases that have similar symptoms to celiac. Because of your mixed result it wouldn't hurt to get a biopsy but it really is personal preference. I understand what you are going through and didn't like the idea much either but I really think it is something that can help you in the long run. P.S. There are lots of testing being done for new medications or other ways to "cure" celiac other than a gluten-free diet. It is my understanding that this can only be covered by insurance with a confirmed diagnosis (biopsy) but I don't need to get into that. The bottom line is that a biopsy is confirmatory especially since the doctors could see in the intestine, so to me, I feel better knowing that there's no chance of going gluten-free for nothing.
    • Hi Everyone!  Thank you for all your responses!  This site is so helpful and I appreciate everyone who replied to my post.   I was able to get an earlier appt with Maureen Leonard who was absolutely wonderful like you all said and after more testing and even a genetics test, my son now has a diagnosis of celiac disease.  He's been gluten free now for a few weeks.  He is doing very well on the diet so far.  He does seem to be sleeping better which was always a problem since he was an infant, so that is a good sign!  We test in 3 months and I hope that his iron levels go up.
