  • Deli Turkey???????????

    Can someone please tell me what type of deli turkey I can eat. I am worried they all have hidden MSG. I bought some honey maple turkey but it has sodium nitritie--Isn't that bad. I also am reading documents saying it has MSG!!

    Also, english muffins--safe in the confident choices book but has soy flour sorbic and citric acid?????

    Parkay fat free spray butter?????

    Most of your deli meats have MSG... I would suggest baking a small turkey and then freezing the meat until you are ready to eat it..Thats what I do..

    ONE Second, ONE Bite, ONE Breath, ONE Pill, ONE Minute, ONE Teardrop, ONE Hour, ONE Sip.. ONE DAY! I will Prevail from this disease! IC Hoping for a Cure!

    Link to Patient Handbook:

    Diet Reference Sheet:

    Meds For IC: Lyrica-25mg Glucosamine-500 MSM-500mg, Prosed Ds -When Flaring

    Other Meds: Levlite- Continious Birtcontrol, Micardis-40mg for High Blood Pressure

    Meds I have Tried:
    Topamax,Tofranil, Elmiron, Atarax, Cymbalta, Elavil, Enablex, Detral La, Prydium.
    Lexapro< Bad reaction to this med!
    Intstills, could not continue them due to some kind of reaction after 3rd instill. Tasted the lidocaine in my mouth, tongue and lips went numb then went into what seemed like a panic attack. Shaking, racing heart, tingling face/head, blood pressure shot up..

      I can eat the Safeway deli counter "Dinner Roast Turkey" in small amounts without problems. I also get the "Primo Taglio Roast Beef" & am ok with small amounts of that too.

      Hormel has a turkey without preservatives. It's super-salty though, so I didn't care for it, but other people here have liked it & tolerated it ok.

      Whole Foods has a brand called "Heidi's Hens", which is deli sliced turkey or chicken. Pretty expensive, but convenient.

      I usually just cook extra chicken when I use the George Foreman grill & save some of that for lunch meat.

            oven roasted deli turkey does not seem to bother me. when i can, i try and get the organic kind. i didn't realize deli meat had msg. sometimes i feel like EVERYTHING has something in it i shouldn't have! how frustrating!
