Healthy Choice Fiesta Chicken And Vegetable Beef Soups
0

4 posts in this topic

Just wondering if these soups are ok or not. The labels look fine to me and they only say "May contain Soy" but when I called the 800 number I couldn't get a "live person" to answer a question. Has anyone ever tried these? I'm looking for some canned soup with meat in it for my kiddos.

Thanks in advance!

Well I checked the Healthy Choice website...they don't give any allergen information.

I would suggest calling the company again or emailing them just to be sure.

It is, however, a ConAgra product. Which, if I remember correctly from reading on this board, is one of the trusted companies that will divulge such information. Perhaps someone else can confirm that memory?

Either way, I'd definately contact the company to be sure.

And then let us know what you find out!

I just found out personally that the Healthy Choice soups are not Gluten Free. I read in another forum that these soups from Healthy Choice were Gluten free:

  • Split Pea
  • Bean with Bacon
  • Chicken with Rice
  • Country Vegetable

I bought Chicken with Rice and Country Vegetable. Within minutes of eating both soup (I spilled most the first one coming out of the microwave so made both), I was sick :( . It's been two days and I am still not all the way back to normal. I wrote the company and this was their response:

"Unfortunately, we are not able to guarantee that our products ingredients are gluten-free, since the source of an ingredient may change from time to time. We understand how difficult it can be finding foods that meet the requirements of a restricted diet, and we continue to look for ways to meet the dietary needs of our consumers.

Please be aware that although ConAgra Foods cannot certify products to be gluten-free, we can assist you by affirming that a product has been formulated without commonly known gluten containing ingredients. The flour used in our products is often wheat flour and should be avoided by individuals with gluten sensitivities. Some fermented or distilled products, such as vinegar, may be derived from wheat. We suggest you speak with your physician to determine if you need to avoid distilled products derived from wheat, rye, barley, or oats. We always advise consumers who may have sensitivities to recheck the ingredient list on each package. Products are oftentimes reformulated and the ingredients may change. If Natural Flavors, Artificial Flavors, or Spices listed in the ingredients list contain wheat, oat, barley, or rye, these ingredients would be listed in parenthesis immediately following the ingredient."

It's good to know ... I don't think we should eat soup unless it clearly states it is gluten free.. .or we make it ourselves.

    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      Hello... 3 weeks ago I was diagnosed with Celiac. Looking at the various flours used to replace traditional flour is a bit overwhelming. I have a Retsel grain mill and I'm considering milling my own gluten-free flour. I have a few questions. First and foremost, would it be cost effective? Obviously, buying flour already processed is more convenient but terribly expensive. Does anyone here have experience with how accessible the ingredients are to do the milling yourself? Rice is readily accessible as well as many varieties of beans. What about milling coconut flour and some of the more exotic flours? Secondly, I'm wondering if milling at home will produce a fine enough product to be comparable to what can be purchased in store. Any experiences or suggestions would be appreciated.
    • Celiac Night Vision
      A very good suggestion GFinDC. I have thought for some time that I should have made the title of the topic night vision celiac because it may have nothing to do with celiac disease even if it started at the same time. Key words are so important. I will search first and may post on one of these sites later. I have now searched quite extensively and have not so far discovered anything helpful except that if you google night vision scotomas you get to this topic!
    • Anxiously waiting
      I'll check withthe Doctor tomorrow. So weird coz i feel ok today. In a weird way i hope the endoscopy is positive at least then I'll know what the issue is lol.
    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Sorry  To give you more info I had the endoscopy because I was diagnosed last year with Barretts Esophagus and gastritis. I've been on medication since but still had issues so they went back in to check how everything was going and to make sure the Barretts hadn't turned into anything nasty. I had a celiac blood test in 2014 ( negative) and the endoscopy in 2015 didn't show lymphocytes in the duodenum well that's if he biopsied that. I also had a colonoscopy with this years endo and all of that came back fine - I thought if I was celiac that would be affected also? As far as I know the biopsy only showed lymphocytes (white blood cells?) in the duodenum no damage to the villi but he used many big words that I didn't understand so he could have said more. With the blood test all I know is that I had a blood test for Celiac - I didn't know there were different tests for it. I'm a complete newbie with all this stuff so I just don't get what questions to ask him.  I'm so impatient I just want to know. I have a big family, a husband that is FIFO and I'm a stresser. 
    • Help interpreting biopsy results after gluten-free for 7 months
      Hi there, Just got my follow up biopsy results after being dx with celiac 7 months ago (dx with blood test + biopsy). Could anyone help interpret these new results as the doc wasn't much help... Basically he said good news is it looks like gut has healed up due to gluten-free diet. Bad news is that he has no explanation as to why I still have all of my symptoms.  Any help interpreting the attached results would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

      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.
