Gluten-Free Salmon

Does anyone know where I can get gluten-free, plain salmon? I read about the salmon in the grocery stores having some food coloring added to the meat to make it pink. Does the pink coloring have any dubious ingredients in it?

I'd like to get gluten-free salmon from from Publix, Whole Foods, Walmart, or Fresh Market. Does anyone buy salmon from either of these places?

If it has wheat in it, it must be listed. It should say if it includes it. Just like any other meat. Obviously, breaded items are out. I believe whole foods has organic salmon if that is of any help.

I think the coloring is added to the fish's food (if farm raised), not the meat. Wild-caught salmon is naturally pink.

Fresh meats, chicken and fish do not contain gluten. Some processed poultry may contain a solution which is injected into the bird to plump it and keep it fresher but that is not so much the norm these days. I buy all my meat and poultry/fish from Whole Foods and have never come across any fresh protein that contains injected anything. You should always read labels but buying meats or other proteins from the butcher there or from the fish section are safe so go ahead and buy some salmon.....Whole Foods has incredible fish! I always buy the wild caught but that is personal preference.

It's the processed proteins that may be a problem but most are OK......always read the label on the package.

You don't have to worry about gluten in salmon, but if you want to worry about salmon anyway you can worry that the FDA is close to approving genetically modified farmed salmon so that it will grow to size in half the time :unsure: in fish farms in Panama!!! And here, silly old me thought that salmon was a cold water fish. This must be a fish of a different kettle :P

The GMO "Aqua-Bounty" :blink: frankenfish "salmon" is a one type of salmon with the genes of an eel and another type of salmon inserted in it.

So of course they want to let some company bio-manufacture this crap in a foreign country, and export it to be sold here. THIS is why we need GMO labeling in at least one state in the U.S. to set standards and force these companies to label this crap, because the FDA is moving to a privatized, "voluntary" self inspection and reporting system. Otherwise, we all turn into yet just another set of lab rats for their eel-frankenfish consumption field trials.

The good news is that some Senators in the wild salmon harvesting states are not too thrilled with the GMO eel-frankenfish, because they fear the risk of this (or something like it) getting loose in the wild, but it is unknown if they have enough clout to stop it.

Since these would be "farmed" GMO eel-frankenfish, one also wonders if they would then be fed other GMO products, like soy, or even wheat, after all, if they grow so much faster in so short a period of time, they must need to eat a great deal of food, and it's grain that is used to fatten livestock on feedlots ...... :ph34r::blink: I suspect that in addition to changing the growth rate, the GMO bio- manufacturers are also contemplating tinkering with creating flesh-bearing creatures that can eat anything .... one could end up with a pinkish- fleshed, mock "salmon" that was, for all intents and purposes, more like a catfish.

    • This paper from 2015 suggests the opposite is true: High Proportions of People With Nonceliac Wheat Sensitivity Have Autoimmune Disease or Antinuclear Antibodies. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/26026392/ Of course correlation does not equal causation, but it is compelling and something worth watching. 
    • Thanks Matt again My Doctor just moved away so i dont even have a doctor at the moment, thats why its so hard, ill pretty much be going to some random doctor who doesnt know me at all and asking for a celiac test, hopefully i pick a good one ps you can have the ashes for being helpful    
    • Hello and welcome It can be scary and there's definitely a mental side to dealing with this which is at least as important as the physical. If available to you consider seeking out some counselling to help you process this. It was really useful for me, as were the people on this forum which is a great resource which you should use as much as you need to.  And, easy to say, try to be optimistic!  It may be that you've solved a huge health puzzle whilst you're still young and have lots of great years ahead of you, years which will be so much more enjoyable gluten free. Time will help you learn the diet and what at first seems impossible will become the new normal to the point where you won't have to think too much about it. We are an adaptable species and however hard it seems at the outset you will adapt and you will feel better. Best of luck!  
    • Hi again Long time since I lived down under but I'll give it a shot pending any Aussie members replying... Your naturopath has helped you and put you on what sounds like the right track, but now consider that you may be better off with a conventional doctor for the testing process.  Be wary of food intolerance tests. They are notoriously inaccurate and as you've found expensive. The first priority is to get a celiac diagnosis/exclusion, you can proceed better from there. The tests to request are:  Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG Total Serum IgA Some practices will only test one. Request a 'full celiac panel'. Before you see the doctor make some concise notes / bullet points that detail: Your past medical history Your positive initial reaction to the gluten diet Your wish now to seek a medical diagnosis and willingness to comply with any requirements That should be sufficient for a doctor to request a test.   No! Your naturopath doesn't know what they're talking about if they're talking about the accepted celiac tests. You'll need to do 8-12 weeks eating gluten to ensure an accurate test. Otherwise you're throwing money away.  A local doctor should be able to request the tests so if you have one you're happy with try there. Alternatively you can search to see if anyone within a reasonable distance is listed maybe with Coeliac Australia or via some of the links here https://www.healthdirect.gov.au/coeliac-disease Again, *good luck with it all and keep asking questions, this place was very helpful to me and I'm sure it will prove so to you also. Cheers, Matt                               *ps But bad luck in the Ashes to compensate  
    • I have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, but my Mom has Graves.  I have been both hyper and hypo.  Had crazy swings for a while while going through menopause and being undiagnosed with celiac disease.  My thyroid calmed down on the gluten-free diet.  My enlargement and nodules went as well.  Not sure if it was the gluten-free diet or simply reducing my immune response (inflammation)  by addressing celiac disease.  Does that make sense?   In the meantime, you might consider eliminating most dairy.  Celiacs tend to be lactose intolerant --- at least temporarily unless you are genetically predisposed (as are some huge chunk of the world's population).  It could bring you some relief while you complete testing.  You might however, be one of the lucky celiacs who can eat all the dairy they want!  Throw in some veggies  and some healthy fats to help off set your weigh loss.  Your body is probably starving for nutrients right now, so make every bite count.
