Libby's Canned Pumpkin
0

7 posts in this topic

Hi, everyone--I'm embarking upon my first gluten-free thanksgiving, and I want to make some pumpkin goodies. I worry about CC issues because I'm super-sensitive to gluten, so has anyone used Libby's canned pumpkin without problems? It says the only ingredient is pumpkin, and it's a Nestle product, which is supposed to label for gluten, but I'm such a worrier about cross-contamination.

Thus, anyone here use it and trust it? Thanks for any help!

I used Libby's Canned Pumpkin a couple weeks ago. I called costumer service and they confirmed that it was gluten-free. They were very helpful. The rep. said they have had a strong policy for many years on listing all ingredients on the lable.

I was worried about cross-cont. as well. So just to be on the safe side I also checked on the Libby's Pumpkin Pie Filling and it she said that it is gluten-free as well.

:)

pumpkin cooks up very quickly and easily if you'd like to try doing it yourself. If you get those smallish, round baking pumpkins, remove the lid, scrape clean, replace lid and bake for 45 minutes on a cookie sheet... you can scrape out all the cooked pumpkin with ease. You can flavor the inside of the pumpkin with all the necessary spices prior to baking if you want. It's very easy.

Hi, Jen--I've copied my recipe below, which is from Pamela's Products. However, I will warn you that I have not made it yet but have been wanting to for a long time. I use Pamela's mix for most of my baking, and I haven't been disappointed yet, so I'm hoping this will be good, too. The banana bread I use from her recipes is excellent, so since this is a bread, too, I'm hoping it's comparable.

Good luck! I hope it comes out well!

Pumpkin Bread with Crumble Nut topping

4 tablespoons butter, melted

1/2 cup sugar

1 large egg

1 cup of canned pumpkin

1-1/3 cups Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ginger

1/4 teaspoon of cloves

Topping:

2 tablespoons melted butter

2 tablespoons of packed brown sugar

1/4 cup of nuts (sliced almonds, walnuts, pecans)

Beat together butter, sugar, egg, and pumpkin. Add remaining ingredients and mix together. Pour into a large greased loaf pan. Mix together topping and pour over loaf top before baking. Bake in a preheated 350° oven for 50 minutes to 1 hour, or when toothpick inserted comes out almost clean.

    • Acne are not itchy or only mildly itchy and they look like red bumps with or without white centers. The bumps are quite separated from each other. What did you start to eat after going gluten-free? More fruits and sugary foods? This can trigger acne.  http://www.ehealthstar.com/conditions/acne-vulgaris Dermatitis herpetiformis can be very itchy and the bumps are more close together and they tend to crust over.  
    • What about Xanthan gum?  It really bothers me, so I avoid most commercially processed gluten-free breads, etc.  Never bothers my hubby though.  
    • I use to get them before I went gluten-free.  I stopped eating oats because it also does give me canker sores and causes my toes to get cracked underneath.  
    • I had quite a few of the medical problems that you have before I figured out that gluten was the problem. I can’t do basic math or writing when I eat gluten also I get depressed, irritable, low energy, etc. The best route to go is to do an elimination diet and monitor how certain foods affect you. I eliminated MSG (Monosodium Glutamate), Nitrite, and oat based on the reactions that I get once I consume them. You must be disciplined on a gluten free diet, there is not such a thing as –It is just one cookie! If you can manage to go 100% gluten-free for three weeks and you see those problems going away, you will have a good idea if that is the cause of your problems. The blood test I did after being gluten-free for two years came back negative so the doctor just make me feel that I was crazy and making things up. I have a stool test done which came back with elevated igA also a gene test indicating I have two genes that code for gluten sensitivity. My lactose intolerance went away too, eating a lot of cheese now. Rash in arms? gone, Brown spots in teeth? Gone, Intestinal noises? Gone, Lack of bladder control? Gone, Constipation? Gone, and a lot others.   
    • Oh you're most welcome!  Another thing --- no steroids, oral or injected for 2 months prior to a dh biopsy. Lay off any topical steroid creams for 2 weeks prior. Really, stand your ground with them. It would also be great if you can get a friend or family member to go with you in case they take the biopsy from somewhere that you can't see such as the back of your neck. Your friend/family member can watch to make sure they don't take it directly ON a lesion. Do you have a primary care doc? You can also go to that doc & ask for a full celiac panel PLUS an eTG or TG3. 60% of people with dh test negative on the celiac blood panel but maybe you're one of the 40% who will test positive. It's worth a shot.
