Canned Baked Beans - Why The Warnings?
0

13 posts in this topic

In a lot of the literature I've been gathering, canned baked beans are specifically listed as no-nos. But I've read through a lot of threads where people have suggested them as great carry alongs.

I'm totally inclined to take the advice from this group, given the real world nature of our 'testing'. Just wondering why it would be listed so specifically?

I have seen some canned baked beans as not safe in the US. There is a specific flavor of Bush's beans and there are some chili beans that clearly have wheat in them (can't remember the brand). I have not seen just plain beans (kidney, navy, pinto) that have gluten in them.

As with any non-single ingredient item, you have to read the labels. Some companies will use wheat in some of their recipes, some don't. Wheat isn't a universal ingredient in baked beans, like it is in sourdough bread, so not all baked bean recipes have flour, so it's possible to find gluten-free baked beans. But wheat is a cheap filler and thickens sauces, so it is sometimes used. As always, you can't generalize by food type or brand, you always have to check the label.

I READ A SAFE LIST THAT SAID- ALL BUSH'S BEANS EXCEPT CHILLI BEANS ARE OK. I EAT ALOT OF BUSH'S BAKED BEANS BUT- I'VE BEEN GLUTEN FREE FOR 8 MONTHS AND STILL HAVING PROBLEMS, MAYBE I SHOULD LOOK INTO THE BEANS CLOSER.

A quote from the Bush's site!

All BUSH'S products made after May, 2010 are gluten-free.

We have recently reformulated our Chili Beans products and our Chili Magic Chili Starter products to no longer contain wheat flour. The ingredient statements on these products now state Modified Corn Starch. Due to store inventory rotation and other elements beyond our control, we still urge you to check the labels before consuming these products if you have gluten restrictions.

We do use cornstarch in some of our products, but it does not contain gliadin gluten from wheat, barley, oats, or rye grains, which may cause adverse responses in persons suffering from Celiac Sprue. Any vinegar used in our products is corn-based and distilled.

A lot of people think of Campbell's pork and beans when they think baked beans, and those have some wheat product in them last I looked (which was years ago, admittedly). There are plenty of brands that are okay, just read the labels. If you crave something similar to Campbell's, look for Heinz beans. I think they are imported from England, but they are very similar. I think the Bush's and B&M brands are usually sweeter than Campbell's.

I'm assuming you're in the U.S.? I was going to suggest Heinz beans, but then realized you don't seem to get them in the US based on this list:

http://www.heinz.com/glutenfree/products.html

I'm in Canada, and I always eat Heinz baked beans.

What about Amys Organic? They have some gluten-free beans: http://www.amys.com/products/product-categories/gluten-free

I've also been finding that a lot of canned or dried beans & especially lentils (just plain, no sauce) have warnings about traces of wheat. I think its because they're often grown and processed together. Its getting frustrating - I see all this info about how lentils are good for you, and all these gluten free recipes using lentils, yet I can't find any lentils that are safe!

Here in Canada I have no problems finding gluten-free lentils. Are you talking canned lentils or dried? I always use dried (taste much better than canned, anyway, and far better for most recipes, especially braising) and pick them over. Tedious, yes, but it works! :)

Lentils de Puy hold together better than other lentil varieties when cooked.

All of the canned and dried lentils I've seen have the warnings. I've looked at Loblaws, No Frills, Noahs, Whole Foods. I've never seen Lentils de Puy - where do you buy them? I'm in Toronto...

Yikes - I realize I didn't answer your question! I get my Lentils de Puy from the Italian Centre in Edmonton. Perhaps try an Italian store in your area.

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I was diagnosed a couple years ago and started gluten-free diet then. Test also showed damage to my small intestine. I explained to this doctor how I was barely able to get out of bed when I ate gluten in the pastand my intestines are still recovering from the damage. I only discussed this briefly. I consulted with this doctor concerning my dizziness explaining that I get dizzy/migraines when I eat gluten due to my celiac disease. I further explained that my dizziness has been cut in half since I went on a gluten-free diet so I am better able to get out of bed. The consult was about taking tests to figure out if something in my brain was causing my dizziness or this doctor specialized in testing the brain for impairments. In her summary, she stated that my memory impairments were probably due to being precoccupied with thinking about my psychosomatic symptoms. However, I only though about the test when I took it. And I only think about whatever task I am trying to remember when I try to remember it! I feel my symptoms rather than think about them all day long.
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      If you don't get the diagnosis you are happy with go to another doc.  Try to find a Celiac Friendly doc.  OR you can do what i did and give up and just go gluten free.  I didn't need a doctor to confirm that if my gas, bloating, migraines, depression, joint pain, rash, dry skin and brittle nails went away when i went gluten free that i must have celiac.  AND 6 months after i went gluten free on my own i had some blood tests repeated that i had done when they were trying to figure out what was causing my severe rash, all the things that were "wrong" with me or abnormal in the the first blood tests, went to normal on the second test.  INCLUDING MY THYROID LEVELS! Oh, i didn't mention that during this time they diagnosed me with early hashimotos.. 6 months later i was miraculously cured from this progressive thyroid disorder according to the blood test results.  I didn't have hashimotos to put it bluntly.   I am almost 10 years gluten free with no positive Celiac diagnosis.  But let me tell you this,  My daughter's neurologist did a DNA test on her 1 year after she too went gluten free and it came back positive for Celiac.  so.  js.     That's my story..  in short.
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Were you officially diagnosed with Celiac Disease at the time she wrote that?  And, if so, for how long were you diagnosed & gluten-free but still complaining of those symptoms?
    • Weird Reaction
      Hi Richie By the sounds of it you could have gluten sneaking in somewhere, or maybe blood sugar issues,  or just plain anxiety, but it would be good to know for sure so you know what to do next. I think maybe the best course of action would be to see your GP and  tell him/her all your symptoms.   I dread seeing my own GP because as lovely as she is she is very fond of sending me for blood tests (which always seem to include liver function, thyroid and full blood count) which for someone with health anxiety isn't the recipe for a peaceful night's sleep!  But she is right, those particular blood tests, and others, can hold important clues when one has a lot of vague symptoms.   Celiac testing is of course another set of tests, which Flowerqueen has described well above.    If you do have all these tests and anxiety continues to be a problem, whether caused by celiac disease, another medical condition or it just turns out to be a stand alone problem, one book that I would recommend that really helped me understand anxiety is 'At Last a Life' by  Paul David. I found it an immensely helpful tool in my recovery.   There is also a website. http://anxietynomore.co.uk/   Keep us posted Cristiana      
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Unfortunately I feel this may be common.  For 6 years I was told I was fine.  Lungs fine, chest fine, just anxiety.  It was not until I pressed the anemia issue that I got a blood test.  Now I am a bit of a squeaky wheel to my doctor.  She referred me to Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN which has a celiac center.  I will meet with Dr. Murray (who is a leader in celiac research) next Friday.  If nothing else, you could always come to Mayo Clinic.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
