Gluten is the protein found in wheat, barley and rye. It is used as a thickener and filler in many processed meats. Anyone who has a gluten sensitivity, Celiac disease, or dermatitis herpetiformis (a gluten-induced skin sensitivity) should follow a gluten-free diet. Grimm’s Fine Foods is an associate member of the Canadian Celiac Association (http://www.celiac.ca/)
and offers many products that are gluten free.
