I was at the store today picking up canned tuna, which I would naturally think to be safe. Bumblebee solid white tuna in water has "vegetable broth" lised as one of the ingredients. Does anyone know which if any canned tuna are safe to eat? What about mayo?

I just buy Clover Leaf tuna in water/salt. For mayonnaise, Kraft will clearly indicate gluten.

I have eaten Bumble Bee and Starkist with no problems but if I were you I would call them to make sure all varieties are safe.

"vegetable broth" can also mean MSG - if that's an issue with you.

To avoid potential problems I only eat tuna that has nothing else added except salt and water.

All those canned tunas with "broth" are gluten-free. The vegetable broth is from just what it says -- vegetables. In fact, if you go to the website for BB, Star Kist, Chicken of the Sea, and other major brands they will tell you they are gluten-free. In fact, it's always a good idea to check websites. The only tuna I've ever found with gluten is one or two of those flavored foil packets.

I've yet to find a mayo that has gluten, but I know for certain that Hellman's, Best, Kraft and Kroger are gluten-free.

I ate some store brand tuna and got very sick to my stomach - how can I know for certain if the tuna is gluten free. What exact name brands only have water and salt in them. I'm trying hard but seem to eat something that is contaminated with wheat at least once a week - my stomach seems to be getting more atuned or sensitive the more I am on this diet.

As Richard remarked earlier, I have not seen a Tuna or Mayo that has contained gluten...you may have other food intolerances or allergies.

On that note, I only buy starkist - I think their quality is better than the others...

I vaguely remember seeing someone on this board complain about the vegetable broth in canned tuna. I can't remember if it was because of the soy, or if there is actually soy sauce in the vegetable broth? I guess we need to check with the manufacturer....sigh :angry:

There is a tuna that clearly lists wheat on the label. I know Starkist is safe, I use thiers, it may have been Chicken of the Sea. If you go to thier web site it will state which products are gluten free, but there is definitly canned tuna out there with wheat on the label.

I can't remember which it is, but the tuna that clearly lists wheat is a flavored tuna (something like teriyaki), not the plain stuff. Vegetable broth might have soy in it, I don't know, but it does NOT have soy sauce.

there are flavoured tunas here in canada by a brand called Clover Leaf. they are all gluten-free except for one (a thai-type flavour, i don't quite recall), and, as aforementioned, it is clearly labelled.

Just to clarify, because I'm confused: I thought that mustard was considered NOT safe for celiacs? My jar of Kraft Miracle Whip has mustard in it. :unsure:
