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!

    • Gaerty,  thank you for sharing this with me! You want to know something crazy? The night before you sent this I was googling "vitamin deficiencies linked to splinter hemorrhages" and an article came up about vitamin C deficiency. I can't remember the last time I took vitamin C or drank orange juice or consumed anything that has vitamin C on a regular basis. It's crazy that you responded to this post when you did. My splinter hemorrhage is razor thin and looks like it could be shrinking but it's hard to tell. Also it's not growing out of the nail bed. It stated more in the middle of my right thumb nail. I don't take a multivitamin mainly because I can't find one that doesn't trigger my anxiety. Trying to find a good one that doesn't have energy boosters in it like green tea and extra B vitamins (all my B vitamin levels are great). I haven't been tested for low C vitamin levels but I might have to now. I was tested for some of the base ones that most celiacs have issues with, folate, magnesium, B's, E's, and a couple others and all of them came back good with the exception of my vitamin D3 which in November 2016 was 16 and we tested it again in February, it moved up to 26. Still low but moving up. My liver numbers in October 2016 were bad but by February 2017 they were perfect. I had skin rashes, most of those have cleared up over the past 5 to 6 months, by about 85%, since I was diagnosed. This splinter hemorrhage came up about 7 to 8 weeks ago. Like I said it appears to be growing out but I'm still going to get it looked at.  Let me know what your doc says about the vitamin C levels. Also what multivitamin do you take?  Ps: I bought some clementines yesterday.  Thanks for responding!  Spencer 
    • Maybe try a rice based milk, I find the coconut flavoured ones really good with cereal.  
    • I guess they've never felt the political pressure the mainstream cereal producers were under in the age of rickets and pellagra? Plus there's not such a competitive market and its a cost manufacturers would sooner do without if they can, although if Udi's or Genius did start perhaps they'd get more business. I think I'll start eating flax seed again, that was good for fibre I think. I take a vitamin supplement also of course. 
    • Good for you! One suggestion, if you run into another reaction like your Endo, try and ask a question which puts the burden of proof on them, ie: 'Given the positive blood test, on what clinical basis are you excluding celiac?' At least it forces them to be more precise and perhaps exposes any flaws in their reasoning. Although if you reach that stage with a doctor it's probably worth looking for another... If I were a cynic I'd say your Endo had already metaphorically left the building when they were analysing your tests.Your primary seems more on the ball though Best of luck! If and when you go gluten free come back here and there will be plenty of support for you.
    • Great Image JMG.   Thanks for the feedback. I think I feel that the decision to push for further tests, and not shrug it off is the direction I want to go. And I think I may try the diet post-endoscopy, and see if I respond (particularly if my thyroid responds to the diet).  Thank you All!
