I know meat is naturally gluten-free, but should I worry about cross-contamination from processed meats?

There’s always a question about additives in processed meats (e.g., lunch meats like turkey, chicken, roast beef, etc.). If meat was marinated in seasonings/spices containing wheat, then it’s contaminated. It’s easy to forget this when you order turkey at the deli counter. Purchase pre-sliced, packaged deli meats (read the ingredients) to avoid cross-contamination. November, 2012
