Canned Tuna

Peter, thank you for clearing this up. I was so confused and really missing mustard :( Is mustard seed, in its natural state (not ground) also gluten-free?

Mustard seed in its natural state is gluten-free. Mustard plant is in the crucifer family, along with broccoli and cabbage. The seeds are totally unrelated to wheat, or even other grains. If you run across them, mustard greens are also safe.

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:

I just read that one, too. They were talking about Starkist Tuna. I think the conclusion was that Soy was the concern, with multiple sensitivities. I was looking closely as I think I glutened myself the other day and was trying to figure out where I went wrong. Glad to know I can still safely have my tuna. (Unless my problem was acutally soy, which both the mayo and the tuna have <_< )

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.

I had the same reaction, I think it is from the soy in the broth. I don't really eat soy usually, so I was not aware that this was a problem, but I am sure considering it now.

I tried eating Starkist and Bumblebee, but I can't. It makes me sick. I decided to find out why.i looked up the ingredient I wasn't sure I could have. Soy. It turns out, soy grows in rotation with wheat crops. The farmers also use the same combine for the wheat and soy crops. Therefore, the soy is being contaminated before it ever even gets packaged. So I haven't found a single canned tuna that does not have soy in it. I'm also trying to stay safe and eat only what says "Gluten Free" on the package.

Welcome to the board. :)

 

I doubt the tuna is contaminated with wheat from a crop rotation. Gluten is the protein in the seed of wheat which would not get into the soy. Any wheat missed in the harvest would just be a seed on the ground and not harvested from the soy plant. I doubt they would let any wheat germinate either so it is most likely not growing there.

 

... My guess is it is the soy that was bothering you, or maybe the tuna?

 

Perhaps try tuna packed in water instead. Then there will be no chance of contamination at all.

 

Best wishes.

I can't eat soy either. Several brands of tuna include soy - I've been told that Costco's brand Kirkland tuna does not have soy but I haven't found it yet. Also I bought a can of Whole Foods brand chunk light tuna with out soy. I had no problem with it. If you wanted to try and see if it was the soy you were reacting to? And if it is there is a soy free mayo called Veganese  or Just Mayo by Hamilton Creek I found made with canola oil. It's pretty good.

I also had a bad reaction from Tuna, I am Soy intolerant. I also read the same thing. If Soy is CC'd then why wouldn't it bother a Celiac?I will look up some of the tuna brands you all have suggested.

Soy is a bean in a pod when it is harvested.  It cleans very well.  The soy in something,  like a can of tuna is even more processed than just eating a soy bean.    If soy cc was a legitimate issue for most Celiacs, we would be warned about it.  Perhaps you have an issue with tuna or soy or some other ingredient or thing that you eat with the tuna?

 

Also, most of the info about brands on this thread is at least 4 years old.

I realize this is a very old thread, but I just wanted to add that Neptuna (in a jar) contains no wheat as an ingredient, but today after eating a jar that I had sitting around the house from prior to my diagnosis (and not thinking about the fact that I hadn't read the label prior to buying it), I had a slight reaction. When I looked at the label, it said, "May contain traces of wheat." Oops!

 

Apparently, it is possible that some tuna brands may contain traces of wheat. Bad on me for not double-checking the label before I ate it!

As someone else pointed out, if you have a Costco nearby try their Kirkland brand.  Nothing in the tune except tuna, water and salt.  Excellent.

Yea I have figured out I am Soy Intolerant. So I think it was the soy that I reacted to. Not knowing I was Soy intolerant at the time of eating the Tuna. I read it had Soy but didn't think it was a problem. I have not had any Tuna since my reaction. I have found some Tuna with out Soy in it tho. And will try it as soon as I get over the thought of when I got sick from it. LOL I am on a no packaged food diet as of now so no Tuna. Not sure when I will fall off of this band wagon. LOL
