Eating Gluten-Free? Avoid These Surprising Sources of Gluten!

September 16, 2014 4:14 pm

Giving up gluten is becoming an increasingly popular diet trend. It's said to offer health benefits ranging from stomach pain relief and increased energy to lessened joint pain. Here are some surprising foods that contain gluten.

  1. Pickles. While many people think of bread-like foods when they think of gluten, pickles are just one surprising source of the protein. Pickles are technically made with a malt vinegar that’s very similar to beer, which often contains gluten.
  2. Hot dogs. Even if you already cut out the bun, the hot dog itself may contain gluten. Be sure to check the ingredients printed on the package thoroughly before purchasing hot dogs, or check with the person cooking them if you’re grabbing a dog at a picnic or baseball game.
  3. Soy sauce. Even your favorite Asian dishes could contain harmful gluten. Wheat is a very important factor in manufacturing salty soy sauce, which means that the sauce itself is potentially dangerous for those with celiac disease or gluten-free eaters. Opt for another complementary sauce instead, such as gluten-free tamari.
