I heard that some turkeys have injected gluten. How do I find a good one to buy?

I have a QFC, PCC, Whole Foods and Fred Meyer to choose from. Ideas?

Thanksgiving Products You Can Use

By Rachel Kay

Turkey

Note: Most fresh and frozen turkey's are gluten free. Be VERY cautious with "self-basting" turkeys and do not use the included gravy packet that may come with a turkey.

Butterball

Assuming you are in the U.S. you don't have to worry. Any turkey, including self-basting ones, MUST by USDA law list any grain. All you have to do is read the ingredients.

I have yet to find a turkey that has gluten, unless it's stuffed.

Honeysuckle White is gluten-free. You can go to their website and it will list the gluten-free status of any of their products.

Yes, Richard is right--any turkey would have to list if there were any grains added.

I get a Butterball fresh turkey. Nothing added, and juicier than frozen. I order one about 2-3 weeks in advance from my grocery store, and pick it up the day before Thanksgiving. Nothing to thaw or store, either :)

    • If you're going to continue to push for a diagnosis stay on gluten! A break could lead to a false negative. It's a lot harder to go off it and then go back on...   
    • I still prefer steaming, but I wash my white rice throughly.  I purchase California rice which has a lower level of arsenic.  Moderation is key to most everything!  😊
    • I eat pretty much grain free just fine, I eat fats instead. But on a side note I posted some specialty and grain free options as of late in the food alternative page where I list companies and food product alternatives. I honestly just welcomed bread back into my life, I found a company that makes grain free bread out of nut flours. Given you have to toast the dang bread to use it well but seems to work decently. Pasta there are carb free versions out there, and there are ones made with quinoa, buckwheat, or other grains, I even know one company that makes nut flour based ones. You can get these gluten-free options and avoid the rice. As to levels of arsenic they do test foods for these, and all should be safe, the trace amounts and the sheer amount you would have to eat to get effected is staggering, a bit of rice will not hurt you regardless if your concerned I know gluten-free watchdog does arsenic testing on products you could check and find the "safest ones" for your concerns.
    • I've forgotten them, just remember the good stuff. Weekends in Baja or Vegas or up Pacific highway to see the Redwoods and Frisco. Watching the sunrise at Mount Soledad and watching it drop into the Pacific in the evening. Carne Asada Burritos on Garnet* Solana beach ale* Gorgeous women entranced by my exotic accent, humboldt county weed, raves at the romper room, *1.99 are you out of your mind Denny Breakfasts, Christmas on the beach, *Beers in the gaslamp quarter. I need one of these                                      * which by the power of my imagination have magically become gluten free     AANNNYWAAY... Arsenic in rice. Yeah. 
    • Oh, it definitely struck me as very odd! It also says "no significant increase in intraepithelial lymphocytes". That's their favorite word I guess!  My blood work pre-biopsy also showed increase lymphocytes and my primary doctor said it usually means increased inflammation. Doing all the things I can now---filing a complaint, I've emailed my doctors to tell them I'm upset and don't think I received proper care, I'm in the process of trying to see a naturopath that diagnosed a friend of a friend w celiac. I'm going to see if i can get the other blood work done with them---and I've been gluten free for a week and a half!
