Bacon is a beautiful thing. You get smokiness, greasiness, and crispiness all in one bite. However, when living a gluten-free life, it can be hard to know if “flavorings” or “spices” are secret gluten bombs waiting to ruin your week. Thankfully, there are many gluten-free bacon brands you can trust.
You’re going to need bread to make those BLTs. Here’s a list of 13 trusted gluten-free bread brands.

Note: We found this list on the Smithfield Culinary website, which is a parent company to Farmland. The products listed above are clearly marked as gluten free on that list. Many of these products are actually listed as gluten free on the label, too. We contacted Farmland Foods directly for a list, but we were told that they don’t have one.
Cross-Contact: Farmland Foods’ website doesn’t have any information regarding how they avoid cross-contact with gluten, so we reached out to them. They emailed us back and said that while they don’t add gluten to their bacon, they receive ingredients from outside suppliers and can’t verify their safety. Why do their products carry a gluten-free label then?
We’ve kept Farmland Foods on this list simply because they do claim to be gluten-free. People with celiac disease or extreme gluten intolerance should probably steer clear of this brand, just in case.

We’ve added Smithfield because they are a major bacon supplier that puts “gluten free” on product labels. However, they don’t have a list of gluten-free bacon on their website. We contacted Smithfield about this and were simply informed that they don’t have a list of their gluten-free products. How odd.
Cross-Contact: Smithfield doesn’t have any information on their website about how they avoid gluten cross-contact. In their response email, they said that their bacon is naturally gluten free, but they can’t verify its safety because Smithfield uses outside vendors for some of their ingredients. Can you trust it or not? Go with your gut in making that decision.
