Don't eat this, do eat that...can life get more complicated? If you are concerned about deleting the wheat in your diet, then Black Bear 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. Black Bear is proud to say "You can eat this deli meat" because 99.5% of Black Bear's premium meat delicacies, 100% of Black Bear artisan cheeses are gluten free. Black Bear does not hide gluten, in the form of fillers or extenders, in their products.
Over 150 items from Black Bear have been listed by the Celiac Sprue Association (CSA) as "CSA-Gluten-Free". Black Bear 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, Black Bear has over 150 gluten free varieties to choose from!
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.
For consumers who have a wheat allergy or Celiac Disease, look for recipe ideas and foods that do not contain gluten. Food that are advised gluten-free to 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. Consumers now can include Black Bear European Style Delicatessen varieties, specialty cheeses and condiments (just not Black Bear Scrapple or Bockwurst).
