5 Foods You Had NO IDEA Contained Gluten...Until Now!

May 02, 2014 2 min read

Being gluten free requires a lot of work.  We must pass on dinner rolls, birthday cake, and pancakes...but without gluten, there is no longer the inflammation and digestive problems we once had  and we feel healthier overall. BUT, did you know that some foods that we would never expect to contain gluten, do in fact, contain gluten?! Since going gluten free almost a year ago, I have a lot of experience in feeling the "gluten inflammation" after eating a meal in which I thought did not contain gluten. Below are 5 common foods which secretly contain gluten: 1. Processed Meats:Sausage and lunch meats sometimes contain gluten! Most processed meats contain flour as a filler.  Safest bet is to only buy organic, grass-fed meats and poultry.   2. Imitation Crab: Think that getting a California roll at your local sushi restaurant is a safe, gluten-free bet?  Think again! When combined with gluten-filled soy sauce, imitation crab is "fluffed" with flour.   3. Cornbread: A "safe" option for us gluten free folks, cornbread, when coming from a box or store bought, most likely contains wheat.  It is best to make your own cornbread from scratch.   4. Salad Dressings: Make sure to check the label of the dressing!  Some companies use wheat in their dressings to thicken the dressings, label reading is extremely important for those of us who cut out gluten from our diets!   5. Licorice!  Now, I know that you may not be munching on licorice right now or ever, but in case you find yourself on a movie date...back away from the wheat-filled red or black candy!  Save yourself!   Now that you have a little more awareness of foods that contain gluten and the reminder to READ LABELS, you can go out into the gluten-filled world as your gluten-free self and feel aware of what you are eating.   Peace and gluten-free love,   Kaitlin

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
