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.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
