Can Pork Have Gluten?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Well I'm really on the wall and having a hard time finding anything to help me answer my question so here's the story.

I made a very yummy stuffed pork tenderloin and not long after I became very very sick (all my usual gluten symptoms) and ruling out bad food in general the rest of my family ate it with no problems. It was a very simple recipe so I can only wonder if the pork tenderloin it's self was to blame. But I can't find anything about pork tenderloins having gluten. It was in the fresh meat section but it was plastic wrapped with liquid the way you find whole turkeys, chickens, and baked hams. Could the juices (no ingrediant list) be to blame? I heard that sometimes happens with poultry that is prepackaged. Is there same pork terderloins? I also live in the united states, and there are many wonderful gluten free pork tenderloin recipes I would love to try but I don't want to get sick again. Here is the complete ingredient list if anyone has any insight please let me know.

pork terderloin

fresh parsley

green onions

Bacon (kraft brand with no gluten listed)

spicy mustard (frenchs no gluten according to their site)

Seems possible to me that the juices could be suspect.

I know I have found that any meat that isn't just plain may (or may not) have an ingredient list hiding on the packaging some place, and my favorite culprit is "natural flavors". Even ground beef from some stores/brands...

Couple of ideas if you want to play Sherlock Holmes - go back to the store where you bought it, see if the same product is still there. Ask the butcher (if there is one) what all is in the juices and where it was packaged - at the store, at a distributor, where? You may not solve the source, but who knows you might get closer to figuring it out!

Then, the next time you want to make a pork tenderloin, buy one that is plain and 'dry' instead of packed in liquid/pre-marinated. Might mean going to a different store, or just making prior arrangements with the butcher.

(Also, any cc chance? is your oven self-cleaning & have you cleaned it since going gluten-free? Any pre-gluten-free wooden utensils involved in your prep?)

Good luck, hope you feel better soon!

Pork in itself is gluten free. Preseasoned pork may contain gluten.

Early into healing it's pretty hard to pin-point a glutening because everything we eat will be an irritant until some healing can take place, gluten or not.

You also might be aware that a shared mustard jar my be contaminated by spreading on gluten bread and double dipping.

    • In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free.  I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!!  Awesome!!!  
    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • If Small was going to get rid of anything in a takeaway meal, it would be the bread with all its dreaded gluten. However, many scientists and nutritionists argue gluten is not a problem for people who do not have celiac disease or who are not "gluten-sensitive". Massey University senior lecturer in food ...
