Deli Meat

Does anyone know what specific brands of meat sold in the deli (not processed; fresh meats sliced to order) to avoid or which ones are gluten-free? I usually just get whatever turkey is on sale, but I think there is something in my diet causing problems. The turkey is one of the last questionables on my list.

Thanks!

Devon-

Hmmm, I can not speak for sure on brands of fresh-sliced meat. However, I always buy hillshire farms deli selects in the package--very good. Maybe some of these links below will help you out. (One is Jennie O' Turkey's gluten-free list) I would say the thing for you to watch is contamination from the meat slicer in the deli. Even if the meat was gluten-free, you wouldn't be able to account for what was on the slicer, unless they totally cleaned it for you...

Also, personally--I can not tolerate turkey at all--gluten free or not. For whatever reason it has always given me horrendous abdominal pain. It is the hardest meat to digest, so your issue may not necessarily be a gluten-free one ... Good luck!

Very good point. Are there any other pre-packaged meats that people would recommend? Also, if turkey is the most difficult meat to digest, what is considered the easiest? I'm going to forego the turkey for now and see if that's causing the problem.

Thanks so much!

Devon

hey there-

i believe boars head are mostly gluten free, except for a particular olive or pickled loaf..check out their site.

also, brands like applegate farms and wellshire farms, which can be found at whole foods, have specific a gluten free labeling key-most if not all of their meats are gluten free. check out their sites as well.

I don't trust them to properly clean the slicer, so I buy Sara Lee PRE packaged swiss cheese and turkey. It's WONDERFUL and it's all prepackaged and gluten-free. I've had no problems with it whatsoever.

I stay away from the deli b/c of the slicer issues. I've worked in delis before; it's almost impossible to get it totally clean unless the employee is just absolutely meticulous.

I have been desparately trying to find deli meats for my son's wedding. Seems that even though some of the meats themselves are gluten-free, most places do not recommend you use the deli because of cross contamination. Kroger's Private Selections have several that are gluten-free and are also available in small packages pre-cut and packaged in the meat department. This works well for everyday use, but I need 60 lbs for the wedding! We are trying to work out something so that they clean the machines and cut it special for me overnight or something. I'll try to remember to let you know how it works out.

    • Can you guys tell me if you think any of these ingredients look suspicious? I didn't think so, but wanted to make sure. I know if I call the company they'll just tell me to read the ingredients. This is for Redken All Soft shampoo.  ALL INGREDIENTS AQUA/WATER/EAU, SODIUM LAURETH SULFATE, DIMETHICONE, DISODIUM COCOAMPHODIACETATE, GLYCOL DISTEARATE, HEXYLENE GLYCOL, SODIUM CHLORIDE, COCAMIDE MIPA, PARFUM/FRAGRANCE, SODIUM PCA, SALICYLIC ACID, BENZOIC ACID, GUAR HYDROXYPROPYLTRIMONIUM CHLORIDE, CARBOMER, CITRIC ACID, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, SODIUM CITRATE, DISODIUM EDTA, SODIUM COCOYL AMINO ACIDS, POTASSIUM DIMETHICONE PEG-7 PANTHENYL PHOSPHATE, SODIUM SARCOSINATE, BENZYL ALCOHOL, ARGANIA SPINOSA KERNEL OIL, ARGININE, HYDROLYZED SOY PROTEIN, COUMARIN, LINALOOL, LIMONENE, FUMARIC ACID, HYDROLYZED VEGETABLE PROTEIN PG-PROPYL SILANETRIOL, CI 15510/ORANGE 4, PHENOXYETHANOL, CI 17200/RED 33, TETRASODIUM EDTA, POTASSIUM SORBATE, SODIUM HYDROXIDE (D184463/1) and the conditioner: ALL INGREDIENTS AQUA/WATER, CETEARYL ALCOHOL, BEHENTRIMONIUM CHLORIDE, ELAEIS GUINEENSIS OIL/PALM OIL, CETYL ALCOHOL, ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL, PHENOXYETHANOL, STEARAMIDOPROPYL DIMETHYLAMINE, OCTYLDODECANOL, SODIUM PCA, PARFUM/ FRAGRANCE, CITRIC ACID, SODIUM COCOYL AMINO ACIDS, CHLORHEXIDINE DIHYDROCHLORIDE, STEARYL ALCOHOL, MYRISTYL ALCOHOL, POTASSIUM DIMETHICONE PEG-7 PANTHENYL PHOSPHATE, SODIUM SARCOSINATE, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, ARGANIA SPINOSA KERNEL OIL, ARGININE, HYDROLYZED SOY PROTEIN, HYDROLYZED VEGETABLE PROTEIN PG-PROPYL SILANETRIOL, SODIUM CHLORIDE, TETRASODIUM EDTA, POTASSIUM SORBATE (D184537/1)    
    • Here is yet another link to a gluten-free host to purchase: http://www.glutenfreehosts.com/index.php  
    • I believe acidic foods can cause them, so the lemon juice could be the culprit.  I get them if I eat a lot of tomatoes or drink a lot of coffee (again, the acids) or if I am sick. And definitely stress/illness.  Many autoimmune diseases come with these ulcers and it is thought that it is a result of the inflammation.  My gluten challenge brought on a mouth full of sores and swollen gums that affected my teeth (nerve pain and loose teeth). I have always found that gargling with warm salt water helps quite a bit with the healing process.  Don't swallow it!  Also, you can get a paste from your dentist that you put on it at bed time that also helps it heal, but I have no idea if it's gluten free.    
    • I am Catholic and my daughter, who is NCGS, DOES have problems with the low gluten host (it's either the host or the way it is handled. There is no way to really know).  Her symptoms are primarily neurological.  I provided the following link to our priest with details about her reaction (she cannot walk, has balance issues, numbness of arms and legs). http://www.usccb.org/prayer-and-worship/the-mass/order-of-mass/liturgy-of-the-eucharist/celiac-disease-and-alcohol-intolerance.cfm His solution was to order her a separate small chalice that is consecrated with everything else but is off to the side on the alter to prevent cc.  Then my husband, who is a Eucharistic minister administers the cup to her.  I am currently recovering from my own gluten challenge (I am also NCGS) and am staying away from all gluten even processed gluten-free under 20ppm foods because I want to heal, so I have not tried the low gluten host and also receive from the chalice with my daughter. When we travel we abstain from receiving and pray for a spiritual communion.   Talk to your priest. Send him the link above, which is from the USCCB.  There is a pastoral solution.  
    • Hello, I am new here I went for blood tests at back in April and the blood test showed a lack in Vitamin D, low in iron (I was previously in January anemic and given iron tablets for this) and positive for Celiac Disease. I have since then been referred for an endoscopy which I had an appointment for on Thursday last week. I went along expecting to have the endoscopy but I was seen by a consultant who says I will have to wait another 2-4 weeks for the endoscopy and that I will also need a scan for my bones. He has told me that my blood results are undisputable for having celiac disease but I have to have the endoscopy to have it clinically proven so I am not to cut any gluten out but as soon as I have had it I am to cut it out. I have been having a look around reading various forums and have now found myself feeling a bit overwhelmed by the whole thing. I am trying to work out what I can and can not eat once I have had the endoscopy so I can get some bits in and be prepared. I am also due to go on a 2 week all inclusive holiday to Turkey in July and am now really worried about what I should do. Any help or advise anyone can offer would be gratefully received. Michelle x
