Hi Guys, does anyone know if the low fat ones are gluten-free? I know the full fat are fine, but I ate 2 low fat ones today at a BBQ and did ot know they were low fat ones till later :unsure: , have a belly ache since 1 hour after eating them, it could be just a belly ache but I really want to know if they are safe because I'm having a big Birthday BBQ for my mom next weekend

reduced fat:

INGREDIENTS: Beef, water, salt, hydrolyzed soy protein, flavorings, paprika, potassium chloride, potassium phosphates, garlic powder, sodium erythorbate, sodium nitrite.

97% fat free

INGREDIENTS: Beef, water, modified food starch*, salt, hydrolyzed soy protein, spice, paprika, potassium chloride, natural flavorings, sodium erythorbate, sodium nitrite.

*Ingredient in excess of amount permitted in regular beef franks.

I hope they're ok????

I have head that they are gluten free. With the holiday weekend, I am not sure that you can call the ww.number. They would be required to list wheat.

Have a good holiday weekend.

Modified food starch is almost always corn. If it is wheat, the presence of wheat must be disclosed under FALCPA, either as "modified food starch (wheat)" or "Contains: Wheat" on the label by US law. If it is not corn, and is not wheat either, then I suppose it could be another gluten source, but I have never found MFS that was from rye, barley or even oats.

There are some who do not trust this, but personally I don't believe any large, or publicly traded, company would deliberately violate the law. If they were caught, the damage to their reputation, and as a result to the share price, would be too high. It just does not make sense that they would do it.

My two cents.

This may be a dumb question but they weren't grilled near the buns, were they?

I've run into that problem before.

Keeping in mind that they are kosher and "answer to a higher authority" makes it less likely they would be hiding anything in the ingredient list too. I've had much better success at identifying gluten in kosher food ingredients. Now, I admit my knowledge about keeping kosher is limited, but I know people that do worry about it and they check out ingredients like a Celiac would.

Sometimes hot dogs are just harder for you body to digest, I had a hebrew national the other week and wound up with a pretty bad stomach ache myself..sometimes it has something to do with the natural flavorings...usually Kosher means they're pretty legit and they were cooked on their own hot dog cooker thing away from all bread...could've just been a spice that set your stomach off...I don't eat many hot dogs these days!!

I don't eat hot dogs much either due to the fact I can have no buns. (haha!) But after reading this thread today, I had to go get some. The Kosher seemed right and safe, but I somehow was scared of what you just wrote Mahee34. The spices! And I was also really tempted to have a bun!! And I can't!! I looked up the recipes for the buns to cook myself and was going to go for it. Even without a bun pan. Then the chores took my time and... I was hungry!! This is so weird, but with no buns, I took a Joan's gluten-free Great Bakes english muffin and put the hot dog on top, covered it with all the good stuff, including chedder cheese and German curry ketsup, and ate it open faced with a fork.... it was excellent!! Pretty wild I must say (haha!), but really good. I didn't know I could have hot dogs without the stereotypical bun. I am glad to have found a good way to eat these. I'd do it again.

But now I am scared of the stomach problems. Although everything should be safe.... It was good though!! Hopefully no update to follow this and all will end A-OK!

For the record,

I ONLY eat Hebrew National Hot Dogs. I have a friend that works in their food science department. He told me all of their hot dogs are gluten free.

I also buy the gluten free hot dog buns at Whole Foods made by Kinninkinnick - they are serviceable but not great...

I will say I've never had a problem with the regular franks, the dinner franks or the reduced fat franks but spices don't bother me. I don't eat them as often as I would like because they are loaded with fat and salt. Even the reduced fat franks are not what I'd call "health food" :-)

But they sure are good!

    • Hmm... my massage therapists use aromatherapy and specifically ask you to inhale several times while they hold it very close to your face and I do have them rub my face (although some people don't like that and don't have it done.) Lotion also ends up on your hands which you could transfer to food you eat afterwards if you haven't washed your hands well (obviously hand washing is key!) But I don't think that is too far of a stretch to think it *could* be injested and to double check to be sure the products used are gluten-free.  And at a salon I realize that they'd wash my hair tilted back but what about product(s) being spritzed on your hair when styled? Rare yes, but I do know I've "tasted" those products before! Ick.  
    • I was noticeably gray at 18. Both of my parents went gray young as well. I have no thyroid problems and I'm pretty sure my celiac issues didn't start until 20 years later....   I started dying it when I was 28. I wanted to look more professional!
    • Celiac disease is not diagnosed by symptoms alone. Why?  There are over 300 of them and many, if not all, overlap with other autoimmune issues or other illnesses.  Learn more about proper testing: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I am formally diagnosed.  My hubby is not.  His mis-informed doctors told him 16 years  ago to give up gluten.  It worked, but now we do not really know if he has celiac disease or not.  He will be the first to say that I get WAY more support from family, friends and medical.   I am sorry at your doctor gave you the wrong advice.  Now, you must decide if testing is worth pursuing.  I wish you well.  
    • I am considering having my brother - who inherited Daddy's power woodworking tools - plane down my cutting boards and sand the edges enough so I can keep them. The spoons and soup stirring things though will have to be decorative. Breaks my heart. I've had good luck with Merle Norman cosmetics. They have a listing of things that are gluten-free that has helped me. My local store owner was able to get the list and knows what I can use and what I can't.
    • While you could very well be vitamin/mineral deficient, you could also have issues with your thyroid.  Autoimmune thyroid is common with .......autoimmune celiac disease.  Your doctor should order a full thyroid panel, including thyroid antibodies.   Your blood sugar should also be checked (autoimmune diabetes).  I am not saying you have these issues, but these AI issues are common with celiac disease.  In fact, you can develop or have more than one AI issue.   If I feel a very strong need to nap, I know my thyroid is off and my doctor should be notified.  A simple blood test usually verifies that an adjustment to my thyroid replacement is needed.   That said, you are in the healing stages of celiac disease.   Eat healthy and include plenty of fats to keep you satiated.  Try to avoid processed foods.  Make sure that gluten-free diet is varied and full of veggies.  Get plenty of rest.  Just listen to your body.  Soon you will feel much better.
