Never been a problem with me, but always check the ingedient listing.  Hanover, is generally cheaper and they are a "full listing" company.  Of course "beans" can consist of may different ingredients as in chilli beans or flavored beans.

Okay awesome - all the stuff I found on them said they were gluten-free but it was like 3 - 5 years old. Just out of curiosity which ones have you had?

You need to turn the can around and read the lables.   Recipes change all the time and they only way to survive a gluten free diet, is to learn to read lables.  Look for wheat, barley or rye on the  ingredient listing,or allergen warning.  Products with simple ingredients are easy to figure out.

 

Just beans in a can and just beans.....we love garbonzo beans

Use these all the time. If i remember right, as long as you get the blue labelled cans they are suppose to be gluten free. That includes the low sodium versions.

I would think that Goya canned beans would be made with Goya dried beans. I can tell you that the Goya dried beans packages say that they may contain wheat and soybean.

Why would they dry the beans... and then rehydrate them? That just seems silly and pointless. It is far more cost effective to just can them while they are still fresh instead of drying them, then re-hydrating them which would be a complete and total waste of money.

The dried beans and canned beans are on separate lines. Possibly even separate facilities I can't remember for sure.

I am guessing instead of FWIW she meant to say, so far.

I sometimes make mistakes in speaking and when questioned have said "Listen to what I mean and not what I say." :)

Thanks. K. I thought everyone knew what FWIW means. Sorry if you didn't, Lisa..

It means the same as "just a suggestion from my experience" for what value that may hold to the reader.

No, I didn't actually. I said "they are no problem for me--in the 2.5 years I have used them...so, never." ..FWIW--which means ".and if that helps you make a decision about the beans, okay,but  if not, that's  okay too".  :)

Dried beans are generally harvested dry.  They dry on the plant.  At the end of the season when they are harvested, they are dry.

I was unaware of this since I have no experience growing dried beans. I thought they were the same as lentils, limas, or peas which I do have experience growing and see dried. Those you pick fresh and plump. (As well as some other types of beans I have experience with that I haven't seen dried.)

 

It is still, and always has been, my opinion that when in doubt about a product, call or email the company. They are a far better source of information than a forum.
