Pork Isn’t Always Gluten-free???
Why does Circle B Ranch produce gluten-free pork, sausage, and bacon? Gluten is not necessarily bad for your health, but it is disastrous for people who have Celiac Disease—one out of every 133 Americans. People with Celiac Disease are hyper-sensitive to gluten, and eating it can cause great difficulty when it comes to food digestion.
Many store bought meat products, including sausage and bacon, contain gluten. While the meat itself is gluten-free, the additives ramp up the gluten content. Seasonings such as traditional soy sauces, malt vinegar, and spice rubs contain unwanted gluten. Some manufacturers cut their ground spices with small amounts of flour to keep the spices from clumping. In other words, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, ground ginger, ground cloves, and even 7-Spice seasoning can contain hidden gluten.
Circle B Ranch meats are processed using only gluten-free spices. We create products that everyone can enjoy without any unwanted side-effects, because we want our pork to be as natural and as healthy for your family as possible.
