    Email I Got Back From Wolf Brand Chili

    Thank you for your email concerning our Wolf Brand Chili.

    We understand how important it is for people who have been medically diagnosed with gluten sensitivity to obtain accurate information about our food to help plan their meals and diets. And we continue to look for ways to meet the dietary needs of our consumers.

    Since wheat is a major food allergen, if it is used in the product it would be listed in the contains statement following the ingredients list. The flour used in many of our products is wheat flour and you should avoid these products if you have gluten sensitivities. If any ingredient in the product includes rye or barley, it will be listed in parentheses immediately following the ingredient. Oats do not contain gluten, but they frequently have been exposed to wheat or barley and are not recommended for celiac patients. If Natural Flavors, Artificial Flavors, or Spices listed in the ingredients list contain wheat, rye or barley, these ingredients would be listed in parenthesis immediately following the ingredient. Some fermented or distilled products such as vinegar may be derived from wheat. Most of the vinegar in our products is distilled and through the distilling process protein gluten is removed.

    Starting January of 2012, we began producing the following brands validated as gluten-free with gluten-free printed on their labels:
    -Cocoa: Swiss Miss all varieties
    -Egg Beaters: all varieties
    -Hunts Tomatoes (excluding Tomato Sauces, Tomato Paste, Pasta Sauces and Ketchup)
    -Orville Redenbacher's: all Ready to Eat varieties
    -Pudding: Swiss Miss & Snack Pack, excludes those containing Tapioca

    Below is a list of some of our other products that do not contain added gluten*
    -PAM Cooking Spray: all varieties except PAM Baking
    -Hebrew National: all items except Franks in a Blanket
    -Wesson oils: all varieties
    -Peter Pan Peanut Butter: all varieties
    -Popcorn: Act II microwave, Orville Redenbacher jar and microwave, excluding Crunch n Munch and Poppycock
    -Spreads: Parkay, Blue Bonnet, Fleischmann's and Move Over Butter
    -David Seeds: all varieties
    -Hunts Tomato Sauces (excluding pasta sauces)
    -Hunts Tomato Paste
    -Ketchup: Hunt's all varieties
    -Reddi-Wip: all varieties
    -Ro*Tel Tomatoes (excluding sauces)
    *These items have been identified as not containing gluten. They are not currently routinely tested to affirm they contain less than 20ppm gluten for a 'gluten-free' claim.

    We always advise consumers who may have sensitivities to recheck the ingredient list on each package. Products are oftentimes reformulated and the ingredients may change. If you have additional questions about your personal dietary needs, please consult your doctor or a registered dietitian.

    I hope you have a great day!

    Thank you for posting that.  :)


    For clarification, the company in question is ConAgra (not named in your post). They said, "If any ingredient in the product includes rye or barley, it will be listed in parentheses immediately following the ingredient." Since disclosure of wheat is already required by US law, that means there will be no hidden gluten in a ConAgra product. That has been true for years, but it is always good to have a recent confirmation.
