Be careful when eating processed meats especially if you have celiac disorder. These hotdogs, sausages and canned luncheon meats are filled with gluten. Why do I say so? How sure I am, you ask? Miss Cimperman says that there is a term called “natural flavorings” in processed meats. You may have encountered that at least once. But do you really know what “natural flavorings” really mean?
As you read the list of ingredients on the processed meat that you are about to buy, you see the term “natural flavorings”. This is a short-cut for seasonings with gluten components. Plain and simple. These flavorings are the ones binding the processed meat. And just like the spice mix, there is gluten in it.
