Useful Resources: Gluten Free Meat Products

We all know that in going to the store if people do not have Celiacs disease they might not be aware of what Gluten is or why the product is marked that way, so I wanted to do a little research to see in a pinch what kind of web sites I could find that have gluten free meats for sale.

Here are the results:
Hope that this helps. I know that I have been wondering for a long time what meat I can and can not eat this is a challenge as a lot of food is processed and you are not sure with what. I believe that ingredients are a mystery in my latest meeting involving Celiacs a lot of people had stated they would not touch a product unless it stated gluten free on the package some where or the store had it marked gluten free.
How can we help to make any of this easier the producers are not labeling the products do we call each one individually and ask them maybe. I presume that only time will tell.

Grocery Store Review: Wal-mart

As we all know Wal-mart has a vast array of Gluten Free marked products on their shelves. Great for the Celiac diagnosed person. What we need to be aware of which I am sure many of you are, is the frozen meets. Great Value frozen chicken drum sticks are not gluten free they contain the ingredient sodium phosphate which many times as we all know contains gluten.. Orieda has also made it a point to put gluten free on their fries that you can purchase making life a lot easier. If any one knows any more about any items that are gluten free from Wal-mart please feel free to add to this post.

I have also discovered the wal-mart powder brand of chocolate pudding to be gluten free it takes a total of five minutes to make and is yummy and for all of you candy lovers out there we can still eat skittles and starburst.

Happy shopping....
