Gluten-Free Product Info.

Gluten-Free From A Mainstream Company

If you are like me, it is hard to always make it out to specialty stores for my gluten-free food. Though I prefer to use certain brands, I compromise on occasion when I'm in a pinch. Though there are many companies with large offerings, I am going to concentrate on Hormel Foods. This is a familiar name that we all have used or seen over the years. I know what you are thinking, meat that has been processed to the hilt or canned for use in fallout shelters. That is not necessarily the case. Many brands fall under the Hormel umbrella of products. Brands such as Chi-Chi's, Lloyd's BBQ, Spam, Jennie-O and more. I wouldn't fill my cupboards with these products on a regular basis, but it's good to know when you need something to fill a hole in your daily menu. Click on the link below for a complete list of the gluten-free items offered by this brand. (Hormel Foods Gluten-Free List)

Hormel's disclosure about the list:

We are providing the following list of products as a general guideline for those presently produced and distributed in the United States with formulas that do not contain gluten in the form of wheat, rye, oats, and barley. Although our products are labeled in compliance with government regulations, it is always necessary to read the labels on the products to determine if the food product meets your required needs. Parents and individuals with food allergies and/or food intolerances are responsible for reading the label of all products they intend to use regardless of how the product is represented on this site.

Hope this information is useful in your everyday gluten-free lifestyle!
