Is turkey gluten-free? Here is a List That Is

by Kimberly Bouldin on November 23rd, 2009


Turkey2_225x225With Thanksgiving coming up this week, it is important to know which turkeys are gluten-free and safe to eat. The issue with a turkey being gluten-free is usually in the gravy packet, if there is one. Solution? Make your own from scratch. Use the broth from the cooked turkey or canned, gluten-free chicken broth & thicken with cornstarch.

Here is a list of turkeys that are free of gluten:

    1. Meijer brand turkeys 2. Honeysuckle White 3. Perdue Turkeys 4. Pilgrim's Pride 5. Butterball (Their gravy packets are reported to now be GF - just make sure to read the label to confirm) 6. Jennie-O

Most, if not all, of these brands can be found at the mainstream grocery stores here in Columbus.

    1. Meijer 2. Kroger 3. Giant Eagle 4. Wal-Mart

Have a great Thanksgiving Day!
