Chicken Broth

34 posts in this topic

I have been ordering bouillon from gluten-free Trading Co. Someone mentioned McCormicks on another post. Does anyone know if it is gluten-free? Someone told me when we first went gluten-free that broth (in the can) and bouillon were things you needed to buy specifically marked gluten-free. I don't know why and I don't know why I never questioned it before?! This was almost 2 years ago and I have been buying it from gluten-free Trading ever since. I was just wondering if national brands have a gluten-free version. I ran out and it will take awhile to order more. Any thoughts?

Herb Ox is gluten-free, as is Kroger brand (if you have Kroger there).

Some broths have gluten. One of Swanson's does - the organic one? I think they've got the list on their website.

I tend to use Imagine Chicken or Vegetable Broth or Rapunzel's Boullion, and I have checked thatthey are gluten free.

Where would the McCormicks boullon cubes be? I've been looking for that and Herb Ox cubes the last few times at the store and can't find them...

I think wyler's was the one who told me it had gluten in it but since I threw it out, I could be mistaken. Campbell's will send you the list of all their gluten-free products - they own Swanson which I never knew before I went gluten-free. I think Tiffany is correct that their organic broth may be the one with gluten but I'm not certain. I get their canned reg. chicken stock (99% fat free on label) and that for sure is gluten free.

Now I have a question about cream of mushroom soup. Progresso has one that is gluten free but I realize now that's it's not condensed...what I'm looking for is a condensed version of the soup for casseroles. Only for the holidays really but I need to figure this out during my slow time of year which is not the holidays. Does anyone know how I'd reduce a non condensed soup to be thicker?

I add cornstarch to make it thicker.

I am also curious about Wyler's bullion, we have jars of chicken and beef in the fridge. I think they have some ingredients that are suspect, but not obvious.

floridanative-i use the progresso creamy mushroom soup for casseroles. I heat it on the stove, and add some gluten-free flour mix to thicken it. My mom made the green bean casserole with it and everyone loved it....she actually thought it was better and is going to make it that way from now on!!! It works wonderfully for casseroles!

Laura and Idahogirl - thanks for the soup thickening tips. Never cooking except during the holidays, I struggle with the simplest things in the kitchen. I am starting to really enjoy cooking finally 6 weeks in. I'm going to make a green bean casserole this week with some italian green beans that I'm crazy about. No more canned green beans for my casseroles. I'm using Funyuns for the onions. Someone else shared that trick with me. I'm not ready to try and fry my own onions quite yet.

MSG just makes me terribly, terribly thirsty.

Ms. Sillyak, what symptoms do you notice when you've been "soyed?" I have Hashimoto's, and I've never noticed problems with soy, but I guess I should be on the lookout!

Thanks,

It has taken me a few years to put the SOY -- thyoid connection together.

I'm a real diva with make up and hair. My hair is long almost to my waist, and style it like the little icon picture. My hair falls out in gobs when I eat soy. I don't have steatorrhea diarrhea, or plain diarrhea just a stool that isn't firm and formed. And I have trouble sleeping.

I must say I really believe there is also a connection to my celiac disease to me stopping hormone replacement patch I wore for about 10 years. At a very young age I had a hysterectomy. It was at the same time when celiac disease grabbed a hold of me about 5 years ago. I went on a gluten, dairy free diet. One thing I have is will power so I can stick to things. I got better or so I thought. I watched every thing I put in my mouth. But I replaced SOY for milk. I have Silk milk with rice ceral every morning. Drank a few glasses a day. Made Silk milk smoothes with strawberries, blue berries blackberries and bannans, almost everyday. I ate tofo for lunch. Tofo sushi when I ate out. The package foods I ate had SOY tuna, dark chocolate bars had SOY. My vitamins had soy in them like the E and others. I noticed when I didn't eat SOY my hair didn't fall out and my stools were more normal.

I went through major stress -- stuff a normal human couldn't survive and would have flipped out. That's when I began getting sick again. Remember SOY was a big part of my diet. It felt like I had a motor running inside when I would lay down to go to sleep at night. When I would cry get emotional, or (argue with the super loser I was engaged to at the time) it felt like I had a lump in my throat. And when I was up set you could see it grow in front of your eyes. In no time I developed a hot nodule on my thyroid. At that time my steatorrhea diarrhea came back but it was with what I now know as night shade veggies. I get seizures from foods that don't agree with me, and I noticed they got worse. I went and had the radio active iodine treatment and it burned up my thyroid... and almost killed me. I'm on thyorid medication but I am no better then I was before the radio active iodine treatment. I believe it's because of the soy and stress.

A few wonderful friend here brought it to my attention the night shade veggie problem and the soy allergy. I did way with night shade veggies and now the soy. But SOY is in everything and they list it as things like 'veggie broth' or give it a different name that is hidden. I have been calling all the food manufactures in the last few weeking fighting with them for lying to us. SOY is the problem why I feel I developed the thyroid problem. Hope I'm not to long winded here and got off topic. I hope it helps I added a link about bad soy here.

this was a great link.

I haven't read it all but skimmed it.

I'm new to the 'soy' thing and esp. interested in the soy/thyroid connection.

I keep seeing reference to it here on the forum.

Is there any info out there on this connection?

I just got diagnosed recently, am now inspecting everything I had on my shelves. My Wyler's Chicken Bouillon cubes have wheat gluten right in the list of ingredients. The HerbOx are fine. I think Knorr are fine, too.

A lot of these things are not clear and since I never had the nastier symptoms many people have when they are exposed to even a small amount, I could ingest gluten without knowing it. It's really helpful to read these messages that tell me when people react to things that seem innocent enough but could be affecting a lot of us without our knowing it!

I cannot find the McCormicks, Knorrs. I tried the Imagine Chicken Broth and thought it was gross. The Swansons seems to bother my daughter.

So now I make my own chicken stock once every month or so and freeze it flat in 1 or 2 cup portions. It's so much better than the store bought stuff. I'd be happy to share how I do it if anyone is interested...

Some stores place the bouillon cubes either in the soup aisle or with the gravy mixes. Herb Ox also makes a powdered bouillon that sprinkles on. I like to use that to season veggies, rice or gluten free pasta.

I've not been diagnosed with Celiac but IBS. I can't eat anything with MSG or its derivative. I've read alot about gluten free products but when proteins are broken down or (processed) they become gluten like. I have a huge list of products I can't eat which includes all bouillon, broth and soup products. I go into a health food store and am amazed at how 'unhealthy' the food is. I have to eat natural foods only and have learned to spice up my food naturally and not with anything processed. Any comments?

I just got off the phone with swanson. Their chicken and vegetable broth is gluten-free. BUT The ORGANIC Chicken broth is not listed as gluten-free. The beef I done know about, because I don't use much and didn't ask. Hope this helps.

    • puffiness in face
      The puffiness in my face went down a lot after I went gluten free. Old photos shock me sometimes now! Your doctor should be able to test you for food intolerance? Here in UK I did tests for wheat, nut, mustard etc. You can do a blood test and there's also skin prick tests I think, am sure others here would know more.  Good luck    
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      Here in the UK I can't eat Lay's owned Walkers crisps as even the ones without gluten ingredients can cause a reaction. I read it was something to do with their production processes. Looks like others have same problems too:  
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Don't apologise! Not needed here at least where people know exactly what you're going through. As Cyclinglady says, you're now in a grieving process for the former, carefree attitude to food you've now lost. You may find this helpful in understanding the psychological journey you're on: http://psychcentral.com/lib/the-5-stages-of-loss-and-grief/ It WILL get better. Eating cleanly is very good advice as you heal but you can then find the replacement snacks and treats that are safe to eat.  I now know which chocolate bars are ok, which brands of crisps (chips) are safe etc.  I don't drink now, but I did find there were some fantastic ciders that I could tolerate and you've always got wine! In fact one of the weirder discoveries post gluten was that my past (vicious) hangovers were far more about gluten reactions than the alcohol itself. A cider hangover is a breeze in comparison All the best!  
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      I ate some baked lays last night and felt very sick all night and haven't been feeling great all day today. Other than that I didn't eat anything different from what I normally eat and there was no risk of cross contamination with anything.. These were the only thing I had that was different. They're labeled gluten free so I figured it would be okay, but I started feeling sick pretty soon after eating them. I'm not sure if it's another ingredient in them or what (and i know it's not the soy).. Has anyone else had a reaction to lays potato chips?
    • Symptoms In Toddlers?
      Welcome Ashley! Here are the current tests.  The DGP versions seem to work a bit better than the TTG in small children.  So, ask for the complete panel (and get it all in one stick....my 15 year still hates to get blood drawn ! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your doctors are wrong!  They must be reading old medical text books.  Not all kids or people have failure to thrive!  You can even be symptom free!. I was anemic and had no intestinal issues when I was diagnosed.  celiac disease affects everyone differently and that's probably why so many folks are not diagnosed. Your kids (parents, siblings too) should be tested every few years (sooner if symptoms develop) per all the leading celiac researchers/doctors if a first-degree relative has celiac disease (like you!)  celiac disease can develop at any age! Hope this helps!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
