Thanks for the reply. Could you also recommend a brand of peanut butter that is gluten free as well as nuts. Thanks, Mya

I always read the label but have only seen one that had gluten - Farmer John's contains regular soy sauce.

Thanks for the reply. I have a million questions. Can you please tell me if you have to be careful with plain rice? Is it often contaminated with gluten? Also for my little guy are there any fries that are safe. We tried the Ian's but he didn't like them. I called Mccain today and they have some that don't contain gluten but are cooked in the same areas where they process fries with gluten.....so if anyone can tell me any other types of fries that are safe would be much appreciated. Thank-you, Mya

Plain rice would be gluten-free. Most items with only one ingredient are safe, unless the ingredient is obviously a gluten source such as flour.

Try these links for useful information:

Unsafe ingredients.

Safe ingredients.

Here's a list of companies that have a clear gluten policy. If you don't see "wheat, rye, barley, barley malt, oats" on the labels, its not there, or hidden in "flavors, starches, etc." Although this list is from the United States, the Canadian affiliates of these companies follow the same policy.

VH is a Con Agra brand sold only in Canada. VH Soya Sauce is gluten-free--we use it regularly. McCormick will clearly label any gluten ingredient. Use their single-ingredient spices with complete confidence. We do.

I haven't run across bacon that contains gluten, although watch out in restaraunts for bacon bits. I know Tony Roma's bacon bits do contain gluten.

Peanut butter is generally gluten-free. I can't name one in the U.S. that isn't.

I think you are in Alberta? I am in Alberta too. Kraft peanut butter is gluten-free. Co-op (if you are in southern AB) has a nice Organic no-stir peanut butter. Western Family makes a nice Organic need-to-stir peanut butter (at Save-On Foods or Sobeys). Bacon I'm not sure.

I've lived in northern and southern AB so PM me if you want any info.

I haven't had a problem with Bacon at all. If you are in Southern Alberta, have you gone to gluten-free Patisserie? They make the best gluten free products. They are located in Cochrane (west of Calgary). They have a great restaurant in town called Oliver R Twist. They label celiac friendly dishes on their menu. If you are craving Chinese food, check out Oriental Palace in Calgary. They make the best gluten free lemon chicken.

Here are their websites:

In Calgary and Edmonton (Farmer's Market) there is a vendor called SUN WORKS they are a celiac family that farms grass fed animals...all their meat is gluten free (not grain fed) and that includes their bacon also eggs.

They also have various breakfast susages,chicken weinners, chicken meatloaf luch meat, rst.beef lunch meat, lamb, etc... a really great selection! Tasty! And a busy vendor!!

I believe on their website they can accomodate people that can't get to the market...they are a really great family

Hope this helps! Also ORGANIC!

This will be good news for those seeking organic foods.

Meat is gluten-free regardless of what the animal from which it came was fed.

As Peter said, it makes no difference at all what the animal is fed. The meat is gluten-free even if the animal eats wheat or barley.

"Plain rice would be gluten-free. Most items with only one ingredient are safe, unless the ingredient is obviously a gluten source such as flour."

I unfortunately had a bad experience with rice. I had Unico long grain rice and OH boy I was in pain for days. I added other ingredients such as eggplants and lentils I had those both by themselves and was fine so rice had to be the culprit. It's such a pain because it's not listed anywhere on the packaging "may contain wheat, soy etc." I'm going to shoot them an e-mail about this see if there was some cross contamination.

I live in Alberta and HAVE seen bacon containing soy sauce derived from wheat! Cannot recall which brand, though. So, carefully read the labels.

In Safeway, there is back bacon slabs that you slice yourself. These are labelled gluten free. Also, their old fashioned peanut butter (needs to be stirred) has only "peanuts" on their ingredient list. I use it, never had any problems with it.

Know is thread is old, but it's still the first hit in google for 'is bacon gluten free' and I do have some input.

BF recently bought the Maple Leaf Naturals bacon, which has Naturals gluten-free weiners, so he thought the bacon was also gluten free. Unfortunately the ingredient list was unclear, go 'spices'!

I emailed Maple Leaf and they said that the ONLY products they guarantee that are gluten-free are ones with Gluten Free right on the package. So their Natural bacon is NOT gluten free, for whatever reason. Being a large manufacturer of many other pork products that involve wheat, they probably don't have the gluten-free production line or whatever or maybe their 'spices' aren't gluten-free.

Furthermore, many bacons have natural and artificial flavors and colors listed in their ingredients, which may not be safe. And Maple Leaf probably isn't the only bacon brand that is likely to have cross contamination, since lots of companies make ham and weiners and bologna etc, as well as bacon. Bacon is a processed meat, not a cut of fresh pork.

I was largely only buying local bacon from my local farmer's market prior my dx (because their pigs actually have a semblance of a life, short though it probably is, not merely a tortured existence), which happens to also be gluten-free. It's tastier anyways.

No grain can legally be listed as "spices." Spices as an ingredient are always gluten-free. Do not confuse "spices" with "seasoning"--the terms are quite different.

I have never found a bacon that had gluten in twelve years gluten-free.

    • It is meant to show you are a real person not a spammer.  Not sure if it works anymore.  Only Admin can see it and he doesn't do anything with it.
    • MelissaNZ,  Has your daughter been checked for vitamin deficiencies??? Vitamin D deficiency symptoms include urinary incontinence, oral candidiasis (thrush), skin rashes, bumps on the backs of arms, joint pain, distended stomach and short stature.  Bones can't grow much without vitamin D.  Vitamin D deficiency causes delayed gastric emptying (food doesn't move through the gastrointestinal tract at a normal speed and the intestines bloat) which explains your daughter's delayed reaction to the cake.   Vitamin A deficiency is also a cause of bumps on the back of the arms. Vitamin A deficiency causes vision problems. Vitamin A and D are both fat soluble vitamins.  Absorption of fats is a problem for Celiacs.  So is absorption of B vitamins and important minerals. B Complex vitamins are water soluble and must be replenished every day. Skin rashes are associated with several B vitamins like niacin (B3), B12, and thiamine (B1).   I went through a period of severe malnutrition prior to diagnosis.  It was not a pleasant experience.  I had symptoms similar to your daughter's, including the incontinence, which resolved on vitamin D supplementation.   Please, please have your daughter tested for vitamin D deficiency.  And have her B vitamins checked as well.  Celiac Disease causes malabsorption.  Malabsorption causes deficiency diseases.  Newly diagnosed Celiacs need to be checked for deficiencies.   I hope this helps.  
    • I will try to make my long story short, I have been searching my whole life for a diagnosis,  I have seen pretty much every doctor possible I even went through a spinal tap recently because they thought I had multiple sclerosis,  when I was younger I was always throwing up and having stomach problems, a couple hospital visits they thought I had appendicitis, I started having a neurological symptoms as well as  anxiety and depression,  The fatigue was just over bearing,  I was having numbness and tingling and muscle spasms all the time eventually started having seizures,  which kind of cycled through and stop happening after a couple months,  and then it dawned upon me my brother has celiac pretty severely, my grandmother also has celiac, my dad does as well, I don't know why I never thought that it could be my issue, for the last week I have   Been gluten-free and steering clear of cross-contamination,  my dizziness is improved my fatigue is improved as well as rashes I was getting on my arms  and sides,  I have no more muscle jerks or spasms, The problem is I have horrible insurance and I cannot afford testing, so I am at least trying to do it an home blood test,  I know it's not very accurate on telling me if I have celiac or not,   But the thought I may never know for sure if I have it is very daunting.  My family keeps telling me you don't need  to spend thousands of dollars to have a doctor tell you you can't eat something you already know you can't. Just was wondering if anybody else has been in my position and seeing if anybody has a vi just was wondering if anybody else has been in my position and seeing if anybody has advice,  I don't want to be known as one of those people who believe they have something and people with the disease frown upon them it's a very scary thing to think about. 
    • ...ON a side note this is quite easy, you can make your own out of any gluten-free Bread mix, I recently started using a coconut flour blend for this.......Most often people associate caraway with Rye Bread so you just add caraway seeds to the dough and a bit more vinegar to sour it a tad and BAM gluten-free Rye Bread knock off. I think Authentic Foods even has a additive to put in bread mixes to make it taste like Rye Bread....Or you can buy it preamade, I have issues with all the other ingredients but as for one of the best gluten-free Breads out the Canyon House makes a Rye like bread https://canyonglutenfree.com/buy-gluten-free-bread-products/Gluten-Free-Rye-Deli-Sandwich-Bread.html
