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...e/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/...ies/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.
