Gluten is a stretchy protein that captures carbon dioxide released from yeast, causing breads to rise. For some people, gluten can cause gastrointestinal problems.
The term “gluten” technically refers to a specific complex of proteins that forms when wheat flour is mixed with a liquid and physically manipulated, such as in kneading of bread. In 2007, FDA proposed to allow manufacturers to label a food “gluten-free” to accommodate those people with allergies and intollerances to gluten protein found in wheat, barley and rye.
When preparing gluten free recipes, it is important to read ingredient labels and avoid gluten contamination that may occur if foods are prepared on common surfaces or with utensils that are not thoroughly cleaned after preparation of gluten-containing foods. The best way to know if a product is gluten free is to read the ingredients label. Products that are labeled as wheat free are not necessarily gluten free and all labels should be checked often, as ingredients can change over time. If you are unsure about a product’s ingredients, contact the food manufacturer for further information. Gluten is a protein naturally found in certain grains such as wheat, barley, rye and some oats. Millions of Americans suffer from a serious medical condition called celiac disease in which consuming even small amounts of gluten in foods can cause digestive health problems.

Federal regulations prohibit the use of hormones in pork and poultry. If a claim is to be made it must include the qualifier "Federal regulations prohibit the use of hormones in pork/poultry." For beef, the term the "no Hormones administered" may be approved for use on the label of beef products if sufficient documentation is provided to the Agency by the producer showing no HORMONES have been used in raising the animals.
Product category for "No Msg"...COPIED FROM TAG:
No added MSG or ingredients that have naturally free forming glutamates that occur during the cooking process like "autolyzed yeast" and "hydrolyzed beef stock".
Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is a flavor enhancer commonly added to Chinese food, canned vegetables, soups and processed meats. Although the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has classified MSG as a food ingredient that's "generally recognized as safe," the use of MSG remains controversial. For this reason, when MSG is added to food, the FDA requires that it be listed on the label. MSG has been used as a food additive for decades. Over the years, the FDA has received many anecdotal reports of the adverse reactions to foods containing MSG. These reactions - known as MSG symptom complex - include: headache, flushing, sweating, facial pressure or tightness, numbness, tingling or burning in the face, neck and other areas, rapid, fluttering heartbeats (heart palpitations), chest pain, nausea, weakness. However, researchers have found no definitive evidence of a link between MSG and these symptoms. Researchers acknowledge, though, that a small percentage of people may have short-term reactions to MSG. Symptoms are usually mild and don't require treatment. The only way to prevent a reaction is to avoid foods containing MSG.Pre-Sliced PackedNo FillersNo Fillers
