Are Johnsonville Brats Gluten Free?

Johnsonville is a well known brand and producer of brats, sausages, and other meat products. Johnsonville Brats are a summer classic and people love to bbq with them for camping, holidays, and much more. Johnsonville also owns Perri, another sausage brand we recently wrote about.

Here’s more from the website’s history section: ‘In 1945, Ralph F. and Alice Stayer opened up a butcher shop with another family and named it after their Wisconsin hometown – Johnsonville. Their shop featured delicious meats, including sausage. Ralph F. was determined to make his brat better – not with scraps of meat like other butchers used. Instead, his recipe used premium cuts of pork, better spices and a better grinding technique. When sales of his bratwurst started to exceed sales of hamburger, the Stayers knew they were onto something.’

Let’s find out if these popular brat sausages are free from wheat and gluten ingredients . . .
