Some turkeys are not gluten-free. Always check the ingredient list! If you are unsure, call the manufacturer and ask questions.
Pay close attention to any seasoning or flavorings added to the turkey. This will be the most likely source of gluten in your turkey.
Some turkeys will include a separate gravy packet - some are gluten-free, others are not. Be sure to read the ingredient list. Tossing the gravy packet is the best plan, gluten-free or not. Make it yourself, it’ll be so much better.
Be aware that the US Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) regulates labeling for meat, poultry, egg products. USDA regulations for labeling allergens [like wheat] are not the same as the FDA regulations. Companies may voluntarily comply with FDA regs, but they are not required to disclose wheat, or barley, rye, or oats or any derivatives.
