Don't eat this, do eat that...can life get more complicated? If you are concerned about deleting the wheat in your diet, then Dietz & Watson can help. Many lesser quality brands of deli contain starchy fillers and extenders which give deli a bad wrap when it comes to eating gluten free. Dietz & Watson is proud to say "You can eat this deli meat" because 99.5% of Dietz & Watson's premium meat delicacies, 100% of Dietz & Watson artisan cheeses and 100% of Dietz & Watson condiments are gluten free. Dietz and Watson does not hide gluten, in the form of fillers or extenders, in their products.
Over 400 items from Dietz & Watson have been listed by the Celiac Sprue Association (CSA) as "CSA-Gluten-Free". Dietz and Watson beef, poultry, ham, pork, lunchmeat and sausage varieties makes eating gluten free a breeze.
From Gourmet Lite Breast of Turkey to Italian Style Turkey Breast, from Premium Angus Roast Beef to Pastrami, from Black Forest Cooked Ham to Gourmet Lite Virginia Brand Ham, from Beef Frankfurters to Chicken Sausages, Dietz & Watson has over 400 gluten free varieties to choose from!
Just two meat delicacies from over 400 choices contain gluten and those are Dietz & Watson Scrapple and Dietz & Watson Bockwurst.
Gluten sensitivity usually happens either through a wheat allergy or through Celiac Disease. There is a difference between these two definitions (See Table Below) but the bottom line for both ailments is the avoidance of foods containing wheat, rye or barley proteins.
When I conduct nutrition counseling with patients who have a wheat allergy or Celiac Disease, I look for recipe ideas and foods that do not contain gluten. Foods I advise gluten-free consumers to enjoy are foods that they CAN have . Examples are: fish, eggs, plain poultry, beef, pork, eggs, nuts, legumes, milk, yogurt, cheeses, fruits and vegetables and the following grains: amaranth, buckwheat, corn, potato, rice, flax, millet, quinoa, rice, sorghum and teff. I now also include Dietz & Watson deli varieties, artisan cheeses and condiments (just not Dietz & Watson Scrapple or Bockwurst).
