Deli Meat

My family has been happy with leftover dinner meat to make sandwiches for quite awhile, but there is a bit of repetitive grumbling in my home about never having deli meat anymore.

So what is your favorite gluten free deli meat?

I'm looking for packaged meats in particular, simply because I don't feel like hitting the deli counter until I can enjoy processed meats again.

BTW - the best way to purchase deli meat sliced at the store is talk to your store manager - most stores wash the slicer at the end of the day - so if requested they can slice your order first thing in the morning and set it aside for you to pick up.

Thanks everyone!

Boar's Head meats and cheeses are all gluten free (prepackaged), as well as many of their condiments....and pretty good too! :)

cya: always read the ingredient listing.

I'd prefer leftovers, too, but don't always have them nor do I want to buy from the deli counter either.

I like Oscar Mayer Deli Fresh and currently have the smoked turkey, which is prepackaged.

If you can get the Boars head pre-packed, those are the best. We also like the hormel Naturals http://www.hormelfoods.com/brands/hormel/HormelNaturalChoicemeats.aspx

I like the smoked turkey and the honey or smoked hams. M says the regular turkey is a bit slimy.

I buy all of the above - Boar's Head (ask the deli to clean the slicer), Hormel Naturals and also Trader Joe's ham and turkey.

I am getting to where I don't like the saltiness of deli turkey so i think I'm going to try roasting a breast once in a while. I expect ham to be salty, so I just eat less.

From a gluten perspective, I can no longer name a deli meat that does have gluten. There probably are a few somewhere, but fewer than even just five years ago.

The other day I was buying ham and found 3 or 4 brands that contained wheat! I do not recall the names but if I think of it I will write them down and add them here. In fact, I had difficulty buying ham without. I think one was a President's Choice but will double check.

ETA: Oops - this was supposed to a separate post. Not sure how this happened! Looked for ham today (Sept. 10) and found only one that did NOT contain gluten. Those that did included Butchery something and Maple Leaf (a few varieties). The store brand contained wheat, too. Thankfully I am able to get Frebeye's here!

Thank you all! Very nice to have a jump start list.

Concern started today - teen son really wanted sliced turkey so ran up to the store (my teens generally don't go to the store without being asked/bribed to do so) and bought Jennie-O because he thought their products were all gluten free. A quick search of their gluten free product list didn't include the sliced turkey he purchased - perhaps I just didn't research it enough - but thought I'd take a break from the product research this evening and ask for a few favorites -- plus it is nice to know things are going to taste good before purchase - my computer hasn't developed this particular skill yet. I'm thankful each day for the internet, but when will the Smell&Tast-O-Vision cards be ready for installation?

I buy Applegate (first choice) or Boar's Head (only from my local produce market which has a deli...they only sell Boar's Head so no other meats are sliced on their equipment).

Love2travel, you are in Canada and the person who asked the question is in the U.S. So am I. In the U.S., almost no ham has gluten (I can't actually name one that does have it but I can't say that absolutely none do).

True enough. The differences between countries can be quite vast, can't they? I was shocked I was only able to find one kind of ham out of six or seven that did not include wheat. I should have made it clear in my posts I live in Canada. My intent was to mention it for the benefit of fellow Canadians. Thanks for pointing it out.

Hi, I'm new to this forum. I am not Celiac but I do have an issue with gluten since I have had Crohn's Disease for decades. I'm allergic to Soy and Lactose intolerant. I use Applegate and Boars Head; both great products, expensive but worth the money.

I did email Hillshire because I had read somewhere in this forum that Hillshire was gluten free. According to their answer below they currently do not have any gluten-free products but are working on them!

    • I had 23andme testing which showed I have genes DQ2.5 and DQ8. When I learned this I decided to stop eating gluten to PREVENT getting celiac, but didn't worry about cross-contamination. A year later I got sick, and eventually had an endoscopy which showed Marsh 1. My blood tests were negative, as one would expect for anyone eating gluten-free. My gastroenterologist told me I could either decide to live like a celiac, or do the full 12-week gluten challenge. I cleaned up my kitchen and started being very careful with eating away from home, and my symptoms went away.
    • The beginning of your story sounds very much like mine. I stopped eating gluten regularly when I adopted a mostly paleo diet years ago (bonus: my lifelong canker sores disappeared!). When I got 23andme testing done and learned I have both high-risk celiac genes, I stopped eating gluten altogether, thinking I couldn't trigger celiac if I didn't have gluten exposure. But, since I didn't have a celiac diagnosis or symptoms, I wasn't careful about cross-contamination.  Then I got sick. My symptoms were vague: bloating, food sitting like a rock in my stomach after eating, exercise intolerance, weight loss, chest tightness. I had a bunch of tests, tried omeprazole, and eventually had an endoscopy. Because I hadn't eaten gluten in a year, I didn't expect any results suggesting celiac, but sure enough, my biopsies came back as Marsh 1: inconclusive, but all the other reasons to cause this result had already been ruled out or were very unlikely. I then had bloodwork for celiac, which was negative, as expected for anyone on a gluten-free diet. At this point I was sent to a gastroenterologist, who said she could not definitively diagnose me with celiac, and that my options were either to assume I have celiac and live like a celiac, or to do the full 12-week gluten challenge and then repeat all the testing. i didn't want to take the risk of triggering another autoimmune disease by doing the gluten challenge, so I cleaned up my kitchen, replaced my cutting boards, cast iron pans, and anything plastic or silicone, and confined gluten to one corner of the counter. I started being the annoying person at restaurants and potlucks asking a thousand questions. And my symptoms went away. i still don't know whether I have celiac. I struggle with the restrictions it places on my life outside of my home (travel, social life). Periodically I wonder whether I shoukd just do the gluten challenge so I know. But I'm afraid of the possible risks. Your allergist did you a great disservice my telling you to go on a gluten-free diet without testing you for celiac. But that ship has sailed. At this point I would say your choices are the same as mine: either do a complete 12-week gluten challenge and then retest, or decide to live as if you had a firm celiac diagnosis. It can be a tough decision. Good luck and I hope you figure it out and get better very soon!  
    • We do not have gluten in my home other then the bread he  Uses to make school lunch sandwiches.  however I am divorced so he spends a good part of the week at his dad's as well where he can eat whatever he wants. My son is a terrible eater and has been very picky since he was 2 years old, he's now 6.  Up until recently he literally would only eat 5 things. He once vomited all over my kitchen after I insisted that he try watermelon.   In the last several months he's been expanding what it is that he will eat however. Unfortunately still no fruits or vegetables, I have to sneak those In via juice.  it is actually one of the reasons that  I am not in a hurry to get him tested. I have to return to Boston to see my specialist next summer and we are going to take my son with us then for testing.  so it buys me time to expand his food list just in case we have to take half of it away.  my brother's children however, because he's a farmer, have always eaten a lot of Whole foods.  his house is totally gluten free but his mother-in-law will take his daughter out for treats occasionally. She does not seem to suffer any adverse reactions. My nephew on the other hand was always constipated and bloated when he was on gluten.  The kids will literally just walk out into the garden and grab a cucumber and start eating it basically.  I'm not even exaggerating. I am envious that his kids will do that and I wish that I had  tried harder with my son when he was younger instead of always defaulting to what he would eat.  I know my nephew will verbalize a memory of not liking some of the changes that were made initially at their house, like with the gluten-free bread. But then he will say he likes it now. So I think kids do definitely adjust  their preferences.  unless of course you're my son, and then the neighbors are wondering whether or not they should call Child Protective Services because  There is an awful lot of screaming next door at dinner time.
