The following are answers to some frequently asked questions about our products. If you have a different question or concern, please email us.

What is Gluten Free?
Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, and malts.  It is used as a food additive in the form of a flavoring, stabilizing or thickening agent. All pickles manufactured under the Gedney/Cains/Del Monte labels are gluten-free.  We do not use any ingredients that contain gluten and do not run any other products that contain gluten on our lines, so there is no chance of cross-contamination. 

How do you select Gedney State Fair recipes?
Gedney Foods Company currently sponsors the pickle recipe contest through the Minnesota State Fair. Judges affiliated with the Minnesota State Fair determine the winning recipes. The top three recipes in each of the 5 categories are forwarded to Gedney Foods Company. More info on our Recipe Contest page.

When will you be at the Fair?
Gedney will be at the Minnesota State Fair August 25-28th, 2016 (booth located by the Creative Activities Building). Gedney will also be at the Iowa State Fair on August 19th, 2016. Be sure to stop by our booth for a pickle hat!

What does Kosher mean?
Kosher is the term in Jewish culture that refers to foods that adhere to rules outlined in the Torah.  Gedney, DelMonte and Cains Brand products labeled kosher means they have been prepared in accordance with these standards and have been examined by a rabbi to verify kosher requirements have been met.
