Delete the wheat
If you have wheat allergies or suffer from celiac disease, we have hundreds of delicious, gluten-free deli options for you. Almost all of our fresh deli meats contain no gluten, and all of our artisan cheeses and condiments are gluten free.
What is Gluten?
Gluten is the sticky protein substance in wheat. Many lesser quality deli meats contain starchy fillers and extenders, which we never use. In fact, the Celiac Sprue Association has listed over 400 Dietz & Watson products as CSA-Gluten-Free.
Which Black Bear products contain gluten?
Only two of our deli meats contain gluten: All of our artisan cheeses and condiments are 100% gluten free.
Lower sodium. Incredible taste.
You might say we are the pioneers of healthier deli meats. We were the first company in history to bring lower sodium selections to the deli case. Today, we continue to perfect our lower sodium, low fat recipes offering a wider selection and more exciting tasting experiences than ever before.

Healthy Options for People with Diabetes
If you have diabetes, you know how important it is to maintain a healthy diet. Many lunch meats are heavily processed and contain high levels of fat, sodium and carbohydrates. But not all deli meats are created equal: our premium deli selections are minimally processed using only natural ingredients, offering tastier options that are low in carbs and fat and lower in sodium.
The best choice for diabetic diets?
Look for products that are lower in fat, sodium and cholesterol. Lean turkey breast, ham, roast beef and chicken breast are usually the best options.
Cutting down on carbs is a must
Many of our deli specialties do not contain any carbohydrates, and most naturally contain less than 2 grams of carbohydrates per 2 ounce serving.
