Nathan’s Famous is releasing new gluten-free beef franks with a healthier twist. The 50% reduced fat beef franks do not contain gluten and feature new packaging from the company. Nathan’s Famous also promises no artificial flavors or colors are used in its hot dogs.


The new Nathan’s Famous 50% reduced fat beef franks are made with lean beef, but the recipe still includes the company’s seasonings. They are bun-length and sold in packages of 10.5 ounces. Nathan’s Famous has updated its packaging to be brighter, so it stands out more on the shelf. It is a bold mix of the traditional yellow and green awning with a blue label for this product’s name.
