Email I Got Back From Wolf Brand Chili

2 posts in this topic

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.

    • Already had that looking on experience and in the end had to leave the room as it was unbearable just sitting there with people laughing at me not being able to eat, yup people are cruel and really show their colours at times like this. Tbh based on the reactions I've had from people my age so far the kissing thing will be irrelevant as no one will stick around to get that far. Since the diagnosis whenever the gluten stuff has come up I've been belittled and made the butt of jokes. Then even people who previously were OK with it started jumping on the bandwagon too. Seems like the alternative to the "bad ones" is no one, which is even worse @GFinDC it's the time thing that's really getting me down right now. Feel like I've lost out so much already and the thought of losing another year or two to this is driving me crazy, especially when I see others my age making the most of their lives and I know with this I can't do the same.  I'm exactly one of those people you described, never been interested in cooking and vegetarian too which rules out this paleo diet everyone seems to use as gut healing. Just adds to the feeling of being lost in all this and once I close the forum window I'm on my own. Still wondering if to do those Cyrex tests to find out early on which other foods may be problematic. Part of me isn't convinced they're scientifically proven enough to be useful but then others seem to have had useful result. Trouble is it's not cheap and already been drained money-wise by these private hospital visits so have to pick the treatments wisely...

    • Yes, GFinDC you've got the gyst of what I am after. If I am reading your response correctly then, you think that inflammation in the gut caused by gluten ingestion is enough to trigger diarrhea, quite apart from the state of one's mucosa? That would be good news for me. More information on this inflammation reaction in the gut with gluten ingestion is precisely what I am after, but cannot seem to find. Because, as stated, as far as I know, D is mostly if not only, caused by flattened villi. OTOH, how interesting to hear from you, cycling lady, that you had flattened villi and no D! RMI, the link is quite depressing. Many appear not to have healed mucosas after a gluten-free diet. A repeat endoscopy is what is so clearly needed by many of us, but honestly I am a little wary of the risks.
    • No, they didn't test my ttg igg, which I was surprised about considering the low IgA and positive DGP Igg. (The tests they did were IgA serum, Ttg IgA, DGP Igg and IgA and gene testing) If he ever returns my call, I was going to ask him about that.  He initially wanted to set up a endoscopy, but I told him I had one last year (with my prior GI) and he said he'd take a look at it and we'd go from there, except that was two weeks ago and I haven't heard from him.  My prior GI did take biopsies, I believe to rule out H.Pylori and I was told biopsy results were normal, however, I didn't receive a pathology report or anything like that.
