We care about your health.
We applaud today’s health conscious consumer, and are unwavering in our commitment to produce high quality, great tasting food products. We only use the freshest, most natural ingredients, minimal additives, and safe processing methods with no harmful by-products. For people who suffer from food allergies, we offer an excellent selection of great tasting products that are free of gluten, lactose, soy, and have no MSG added.
Approximately 10% of Canadians suffer from a food allergy. Here’s how we help meet your dietary needs:
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.
It is estimated that 7 million Canadians are sensitive to lactose, which is a sugar found in milk and other dairy products. Most of Grimm’s meat products are lactose free with the exception of our Smokies with cheese.
Grimm’s does not use Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) to flavour our meat products, the only exception being our Beef Jerky. We prefer to rely on choice ingredients mixed with our family’s secret recipe to create the tasty natural flavour.
A soy allergy is when the body reacts negatively to the proteins found in soy. All of Grimm’s meat products are soy free, with the exception of our Beef Jerky.
