Any sort of deli turkey

13 posts in this topic

I searched here. I read labels. Nothing compliant. Any suggestions?

Maybe try whole foods?

Thanks for any help.

Fresh roasted turkey might be one option at the Whole Foods deli counter. You'd need to grill them on whether it contains any nasties. Or turkey from a poultry farmer or butcher.

Bottom line: deli turkey meat is very tricky to get Whole30 compliant.

I have found it much easier to roast a fresh turkey breast and then portion it up and freeze what I don't need immediately.  I do the same with roast beef.  The cost savings are enormous as well.

When I read the label of a turkey breast I see all sorts of things. I'll take a look with my new whole30 eyes. Might be the answer. Thanks.

I bought my family some Organic Oven Roasted Turkey at Wegman's deli counter last week. They had the label visible, and I'm pretty sure there was nothing non-compliant in there.

I'll take a look. No Wegmans here bit I'll find out what's their name here. Thanks.

Rats none here in CA. I'll try trader joes.

It is disappointing but sometimes they don't even know! The WF by my house has a local bacon whose ingredients list at WF didn't include sugar and I called the farm to make sure and they said that it was cured with sugar but they didn't feel the need for WF to list it on the plaque in front of it in the deli case. ?!?!

Applegate has a turkey bologna.  And roast beef (but read the labels because some roast beef isn't compliant.)

 

Wegman's has turkey and ham.

 

Whole Foods  has one turkey, I think from a company called Fresh Fields.

What about Boar's Head lunchmeats?

Check the ingredient label or call their nutrition line at 800-352-6277.   Their meats are gluten-free, but you'd need to ask if they contain things like sugar, sweetener, soy or carrageenan.

According to this post, most of their meats contain sugar, which would make them a no go for a Whole30.

Plainville oven roasted turkey is compliant - our local health food store carries it. We also do Applegate farms turkey bologna for the kids (and me ;))

Our local Whole Foods just started carrying Plainville and it's really good and cheaper than Applegate. 

 

I actually just sent an email to the company to confirm ingredients (to make sure there's nothing hidden -- call me neurotic after reading posts here) but I could see the ingredients list on the package through the deli case and it looked good.
