Campbell's Soups?
0

9 posts in this topic

I'm really new to being gluten-free, and I was wondering about Campbell's soup. Cream of Mushroom and Cream of Chicken soup both contain "modified food starch". I know that can be questionable sometimes, but does anyone know if Campbell's specifically uses wheat starch? Does anyone have a list? I love cooking with these soups, so if you know of any other namebrands that have gluten-free cream of mushroom or chicken, that would also be helpful. THanks so much!

PS, If you are looking for a "cream of" type of soup. Progresso makes a creamy chicken and wild rice and also a creamy mushroom. They are not condensed, but work well in recipes that call for condensed.

My experience in reading regular Campbell soup label is that they will state wheat/wheat flour. Most of their products do contain wheat. Be very careful in reading their labels.

Stephanie1,

The gluten-free list from Campbell's is very different if you are in Canada. Mine has less on it that the list provided in an earlier post. If you are getting the list for Canadian products, phone them and they'll pop the list in the mail right away. If you go to the website, you'll never get a response.

I was wondering why I never got a response from Campbells. I have had a few companies that have not responded to my e-mails. I guess I'll have to start calling. I wish the Canadian and US ingredients were the same. It would make shopping much simpler.

I thought that Campbell's chicken and rice soup was gluten-free. Has anyone had either good or bad experiences with it?

I eat their chicken and rice soup. I haven't had problems with it.

Actually, I think I have been having problems with this soup lately, I've e-mailed the company to see if there is any chance of contamination and I'll post their response.

I have found that making my own cream of chicken soup base is economical and good. I make it in a powdered form and then just add water and heat it in the microwave if you want it thickened or you can just add the water and put it in a dish that will be cooked and it will thicken while cooking.

2 cups non-fat powdered milk

3/4 cup cornstarch

1/4 gluten free instant chicken boullion

2 T. Dried onion

1/2 t. pepper

1 t. thyme

Combine 1/3 c. dry mi with 11/4 c. water and microwave on high for two minutes. Stir soup and continue cooking about 1-2 minutes more to desired thickness. Add cheese, celery, herbs, mushrooms etc. Very good for scalloped potatoes.

Good Luck,

Bonnie

    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.  
    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
