Can my beef suet contain gluten?

According to wikipedia "Pre-packaged suet sold in supermarkets is dehydrated suet. It is mixed with flour to make it stable at room temperature." I just bought some suet at the farmers market from a local farm. Do farmers use this method of preparation?, since mine did come in a plastic package.

I usually by leaf-lard / suet from health food store/butcher. It is clearly suet. You will know! Went to supermarket for once in a while glance and saw exactly what the article is talking about, totally two different products!

I think you'll have to go back to the farmer's market and ask the farmer what they do (or ask on facebook, if you're facebook friends with the farm).

It's amazing where gluten can crop up, especially in crafted items like that. I've gotten pickles from a local vendor that tested positive on my gluten test strips, and none of the ingredients would have suggested it contained gluten.
