  • Has anyone had any luck with hot dogs?

    I love the 98% fat free oscar mayer hot dogs that I used to eat before I found out I had IC. Has anyone had any luck with them or with the chicken frank hot dogs?

      I can have some kinds of hot dogs. We don't have them often, however.

      Stay safe

        oscar mayer makes a nitrate free hot dog that I have no problem with.

          Yes, it's the meats with nitrates that will get you in trouble. Any kind of hot dog without nitrates should be fine. Be careful also with any kind of cured meats.

            hot dogs

            I use the Trader Joe's nitrite free hot dogs. Not bad and they don't seem to cause any problems for me.
            I didn't know, however, that Oscar Mayer makes a nitrite free dog. I think I'll take a look at those.

              hot dogs

              Eckrich makes a wonderful hotdog called 'smoked grillers'.. In the past this was my prefered brand. However, I tried one using the saur kraut made without vinegar and had a flair. I dont know what ingredient caused it. Will not use it again for myself.............just the famiy.
