What Are Some Ingredients in a Gluten-Free Turkey Injection Recipe?

Ingredients in a gluten-free turkey injection recipe may include white wine, onion powder, garlic powder, butter and Worcestershire sauce. Not all brands of Worcestershire sauce are gluten-free. Ensure that each individual ingredient is free from gluten before using it in an injection.

To make Glutenfreeda's recipe for a gluten-free turkey injection, combine 1 teaspoon each of onion and garlic powder, 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt, 8 ounces of grapefruit juice, 2 ounces of dry white wine and 1/2 ounce of Worcestershire sauce. Inject this mixture into the turkey before cooking.

The Great American Spice Company sells a pre-made gluten-free turkey injection, as of 2015. Some ingredients in the buttery garlic turkey injection are salt, butter, maltodextrine, sodium phosphate and dextrose. It also contains garlic, parsley, turmeric and annatto.

Our Best Bites recommends using a mixture of chicken broth, butter and garlic as both an injection and a marinade. Mix these ingredients in proportions according to personal taste.

Many store-bought and frozen turkeys are injected with brine or marinades that may contain gluten. Because the ingredients of these injections are not always listed on the turkey packaging, customers can call the company or supplier to determine if the turkey itself contains gluten. A few manufacturers that specifically make gluten-free turkeys include Honeysuckle White, Jennie-O, and Perdue.
