Progresso Soups
0

10 posts in this topic

Hi all,

Before I knew that I was gluten intolerant, I depended on Progresso soups in a can for quick meals/snacks. They always listed whether or not the soup contained egg product, so I loved how easy it was to pick up a can or two to have around.

I emailed them (Betty Crocker) asking about gluten. They always list if the soup containers wheat ingredients but I wanted to see about hidden sources, etc.

Here is their reply:

Thank you for contacting Progresso regarding gluten in Progresso products.

It is our primary 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 other sources of gluten, 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

Wow! This is great news.... I haven't even investigated this since going gluten-free in March of 2003. I always used to use progresso as a quick lunch.

Thanks,

This good news comes just in time for cold weather!

There are 5 Progresso soups that my daughter and I occasionally eat for lunch.

They are:

Progresso Traditional Chicken Rice with Vegetables (good)

Progresso Traditional Chicken and Wild Rice (good)

Progresso Vegetable Classics Lentil (our favorite)

Progresso Vegetable Classics Split Pea (a little on the runny side, but tastes good)

Progresso Vegetable Classics Garden Vegetable (New, we have it but haven't tried it yet)

There are more Progresso Soups that are gluten-free, but these are also dairy free. I like being able to have some hot soup and one can is enough for my daughter and I. My boys won't eat soup! :rolleyes: I am looking forward to the weather cooling down and then I will start making some homemade. But it is nice to have some cans on hand...

God bless,

Mariann

I like their cream of mushroom and Manhattan clam chowder (read the label to make sure they haven't changed recently; I haven't had them in a while). They now have two versions of their New England clam chowder. One is gluten-free and one isn't, so read carefully.

I spoke to Progresso directly about their clam chowder. They have two flavors: Rich & Hearty (gluten-free) and Traditional, which I assume is the one you are warning us about. The labels give no warnings in accordance to their response above in this topic. Also, if you're concerned about the pollock, the fish is in it's natural state, not processed. Please tell us how you know this to be contaminated with Gluten.

Post was five years ago. At the time, one of them CLEARLY had wheat or barley listed -- I don't remember which. If there's no wheat or barley listed now, they've change the recipe during the past 5 years.

I just called Progresso today. The woman on the phone checked their gluten policy and said that the only products they ensure to be gluten free are labeled as such, either on the front of the can or in small, white, bold print on the back: http://progresso.com/Products/Gluten-Free

 

As for soups not labeled as gluten-free, she said Progesso does not hide gluten in any of its ingredients (e.g. the Modified Food Starch is safe; if it had wheat, it would say Modified Wheat Starch). However, she did add that, unless the product is labeled as gluten free, Progresso cannot guarantee that the product hasn't been contaminated through the sourcing or manufacturing process.

 

I hope this helps everyone!

      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it.

      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

      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,
