CERTIFIED Gluten-Free Sausage & Meat
What is Gluten?
Gluten is a family of proteins found in certain grains, including wheat, rye and barley. Contrary to popular belief, rice is naturally gluten-free. Gluten helps foods maintain their shape, acting as a glue that holds food together. Gluten can be found in many types of foods, even ones that would not be expected, according to the Celiac Disease Foundation.
Which types of meat are gluten free?
Naturally, meat is gluten free.
Fresh or frozen cuts of meat, like pork and poultry (chicken and turkey), are all naturally gluten-free. However, that can quickly change based on how meat is further processed and handled. With meat products, you will most likely find gluten in items such as meatballs, chicken strips, and breakfast sandwiches.
Meat that is free from gluten is an essential attribute for people that follow a gluten-free diet due to celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, or personal dietary choices.
How do you know if the meat you’re buying is gluten free?
It’s important to look for a gluten-free label, call-out, or logo and check for allergens and obvious ingredients like wheat and other grains. According to the FDA, manufacturers may voluntarily claim products as “gluten free” as long as the requirements are met, including less than 20ppm (parts per million). 20ppm is sometimes enough to trigger a gluten allergy or auto-immune response.
At Jones Dairy Farm, we’ve made it easy for you to know and trust that our products are gluten free because we take the extra step to become certified.

You will find a Certified Gluten Free logo on all of our gluten free products including all of our all natural sausage offerings, naturally smoked hams and Canadian bacon, dry aged bacon, and braunschweiger liver sausage.

Gluten-Free Naturally Smoked Canadian Bacon
Canadian bacon is different than bacon and ham. Canadian bacon is made from pork loin, which makes it much leaner than traditional bacon, which is made only from pork belly. This gives Canadian bacon a different texture and is closer to a slice of ham than the cured bacon most people are familiar with. While there are multiple kinds of ham, Canadian bacon is one-of-a-kind and most often used as a pizza topper, in a breakfast sandwich, or simply eaten straight from the package as a nice snack or protein for lunch.

Jones uses whole muscles in our hams. That means that we don’t need to use filler, such as ground trim, to make our hams. They are naturally cherrywood or hickorywood smoked in our own smokehouses and use a 100 year old family curing recipe passed down through the generations. We take the right steps to produce a ham that’s full of flavor, not pumped with water, and delivers a ham that’s perfect for any occasion.
