gluten-free Canned Soup?
0

35 posts in this topic

Hi,

I am newly diagnosed and feel like I will never figure this all out. I had my favorite soup for dinner last night. It never even occured to me the soup would have gluten until I got sick. I need to find a gluten-free canned soup as I cannot afford to get all my soup fresh at health food stores. Do they make gluten-free canned soup?

let me know!! :)

I'm new to this also (i was diagnosed last week!) so I'm also trying to figure this out. I love soup and for canned soup I used to eat progresso but now I'm not sure if the ones I like are okay. I did hear that a lot of their soups are gluten free so I called the company to ask which ones. They didn't give me a very straightforward answer though. The woman said she knew it was there policy to label gluten ingredients on the label (don't most companies do that though? :huh: ) so she said if there isn't malt, barley, or wheat listed then it's okay, but I'm supposed to check the ingredients myself. I might call back though and ask if she knows specific types that are safe so I'll let you know if I find out.

Progresso Chicken and Wild Rice (in the convenient microwave cup) is safe! I also eat Imagine and Pacific soups (they come in a carton). I hear Campbells cheesey broccoli is safe, but haven't tried one. I also get great soups from Trader Joes too.

Progresso Cream of Mushroom is gluten free and very good "for canned soup".

I usually make my one and it is very easy.

Prgresso also has Chicken Cheese Enchilada and Corn Chicken Chowder that are gluten free BUT most of their soups have MSG so if that bothers you, you'd want to avoid that line. Health Valley has several gluten free soups (crm of mush, crm of celery, crm of chicken) but many on here can't tolerate them and think there may be a cc issue. I love Amy's gluten free soups but since they are organic, they are quite pricey.

I think the Progresso one is actually "Creamy Mushroom" if I remember right? Or are they two separate ones, Lisa?

One of Progresso's Clam Chowders is safe also. I think the "traditional" one is NOT safe...but the "thick and hearty" (or something like that, I don't have one in my pantry) is safe. But, please read labels!

I asked Progresso via Email about their soups (they are Betty Crocker).

Here's the response I got. Pretty good, means we should be able to trust their labeling!

Thank you for contacting Progresso regarding gluten in our Progresso soup.

It is our goal to help our consumers determine whether or not they can include our products in their diet. To accurately accomplish this, we believe it is best to refer to the specific ingredients listed on each product package.

However, we do understand that ingredients can be confusing, so we want to assure you if the ingredient label does not list wheat, barley, rye, oats or gluten containing ingredients sourced from these grains, then the product would be gluten-free. Sources of gluten are listed on the label even if the source of gluten is part of another ingredient (such as flavoring or spice). Because ingredients may vary from one package to another due to product reformulation, you should use the product’s ingredient label to provide you with current and accurate information. It is best to refer to the ingredient label on the package. We understand that ingredients can be confusing, so we want to assure you that the product would be gluten free if the ingredient label does not list:

    • Wheat
    • Oats
    • Barley
    • Rye
      Derivatives of these grains that contain gluten. Examples:
      “malt” or “organic malt” are made from barley semolina, durham, tritcale, and spelt are forms of wheat

We do not hide gluten under other ingredients; for example it would not be hidden under Natural Flavors, or Spices.

Additional information regarding gluten may be obtained by contacting your health care professional or:

Not to burst your bubble, but I can't tolerate Progresso and there was a recent post and some other people said the same thing. I don't know if it is all the chemicals, but I don't do well with it.

Also, someone else recently posted that Imagine is now manufactured in a facility that contains wheat.

It is a personal choice whether you want to avoid eating foods that may have cc issues from being manufactured around wheat. Personally, I have gotten sick too many times from stuff like that so I don't eat any of it. Amy's stuff always gets me sick from cc as well.

So, I loved canned soup, however I haven't found any that is produced in a gluten-free facility and doesn't have MSG or a ton of chemicals, except Pacific, which is just broth, although good broth.

If you are new to the diet then your system needs time to heal. As convenient as it would be, I wouldn't recommend eating a lot of canned soup, especially in the beginning. I learned the hard way and I'm just trying to help out.

Some of the Baxter's soups are labeled gluten-free, including the lobster bisque.

Currently, ALL Campells soups in the US contain gluten, or, at least they don't have them on the gluten free list. Heck, Campells still isn't even using the 2006 labeling laws. Non that I have seen anyhow...

Healthy Choice (green label) the chicken and rice contains no wheat and it comes in one of those nifty microwave containers so it is portable for work.

I have been using the new Wegmans Culinary Stock broths and then just throwing in tinkaynda pasta or rice and veggies. I make enough for work and home and enjoy.

I believe the Lipton in a cup cream of chicken is also safe, may have changed, been awhile since I used that.

Good Luck!

I buy Walmarts chicken and rice soup and it is not that expensive and it is very good to have around if you were to get a cold or something. :)

If you don't mind boxed soups I like Imagine Organic Soups--some have dairy, some have soy, and a few are gfdfsf. Trader Joe's has some similar boxed soups.

Shelton's chicken and wild rice soup has no gluten. Some of the Amy's Organics soups are gluten free. I can't remember offhand which ones.

So that means that Campell's Spaghetti and Meatballs has gluten? I didn't see it on the label.

I make my own soups with Imagine broth. Throw in frozen veggies, meat and seasoning. So easy. You can also throw in par-boiled rice or rice pasta. Freeze for later what you dont eat now. :)

They make a spaghetti and meatball soup? What is the spaghetti made of? And what would they put in the meatballs as a binder/stretcher, like crumbs or oats?

    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it. 
    • I admit, my blood panel was "mildly positive" with only the DPG IGA being the positive, yet I had a Marsh Stage IIIB (pathologist report) though my visual on the endoscopy was fine.  celiac disease can be hard to diagnose, that is for sure.
