Gluten Free Holiday Tips and Recipes

   1. Not all turkeys are gluten free 
  • Many turkeys are soaked  in a solution that has gluten in it or possibly injected with a solution that contains gluten.

 Purchase only FRESH TURKEYS!

    1. Foster Farms FRESH Turkey
    2. Butterball FRESH Turkey
    3. Honeysuckle White FRESH Whole Turkey 
    4. Norbest
    5. Shelton
    6. Perdue
     2 Not all hams are gluten free
     Below is a list of companies that have gluten free hams and why you need to be careful when buying a ham. Always check the ingredient list to make sure nothing has changed. This is very important for any ham that says it is preglazed.

    The quote below if from About.com. 
    "Ham is a holiday tradition in many homes. Hams, like turkey may be injected with a solution during processing that contains gluten. According to the following manufacturers, listed products are gluten-free. Always read labels carefully because not all products by these manufacturers are gluten-free."

    Below is a list of companies that have gluten free products to help you with your holiday shopping. (This is by no way a complete list. But I had to start somewhere) If you have a product you are questioning- go to links page and click on glutenfreeinsd.com. Then to manufacturers. If you still cannot find the answers you need please contact me.
    1. Wilderness pie fillings
    2. Cool Whip whipped topping
    3. McCormick single spices including liquid flavorings like vanilla & almond
    4. Libby's pumpkin pie filling
