Dennison's Chili,
1 1

5 posts in this topic

I can't decide if anything on Dennison's chili label looks bad, for sure. I tried to look up soy flour, soy pretein, and caramel coloring, with no definitive results. Anyone know for sure? I've eaten it, with only the bit of gassiness I'd expect from beans. But, is that why??? Does anyone know of any good chili, that is gluten-free? The kind I bought at Traders Joe's, tasted yucky, to me!

Thanks, Nita

you can make your own chili pretty fast by browning a pound of ground meat (I use turkey) adding a can of black beans, a can of kidney beans, two cans of diced tomatoes, a can of tomato paste, sage, cumin, ground cayanne, salt, and lots of chili powder. takes about half an hour from "take pan out of cabinet" to finished.

We eat Hormel Chili, it is gluten free. I make my own too, it really is easy. Let me know if you need a recipe.

Dennison's is a ConAgra product. ConAgra will clearly list any wheat if it's there, but not barley, rye or oats. Personally, I don't think you'd find those three hidden in a product like that. Soy flour and soy protein are soy. Caramel color, despite what you hear, really is not a major threat.

Hormel chili WITH beans is gluten-free. Without beans is not.

The best chili, though, is homemade. Make extra and freeze it.

I have tried eating Dennison's Chili a couple of times and every time I eat it I feel like I have eaten something with gluten in it. I thought it was possible that I just cross contaminated between me and my husband the first time because he is not gluten free. But after the first time I was supper careful and had the same reaction. I know the ingredients don't have say they have any gluten in them but maybe there is some cross contamination in the manufacturing process that they are not listing. This is just my experience though if you can eat it go for it.

    • I would suggest you test your daughter through a doctor. The Enterolab tests are not recognized as accurate or reliable by the medical profession. See this link from the Chicago Celiac Disease Center: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
    • Sorry.  Something is wonky with either my connection or celiac.com! Your results are not specific...borderline.    That is why your PCP should refer you to a GI for further celiac blood tests and a possible endoscopy.  I recognize the lab report form.  Kaiser?  If so, a PCP can not order a full celiac panel.  Only a GI can do so.  Why bother?  Because if you test like me, the TTG tests are always negative.  Request the EMA and the DGPS test via a GI.   Do not be fooled by a lack of abdominal symptoms.  I was only anemic -- no abdominal issues at all.  Constipation is a symptom.  Your PCP is thinking is just historical Classic celiac disease symptoms.   Please email your doctor for the referral if you think you might have celiac disease and want a solid answer.    
    • Hello, I have frequent canker sores (roughly comes back every couple of months). Some blood test results are as following. Component Your Value Standard Range TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 0.31 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.96 Index <=0.90 Index My doctor said that result is unspecific, and I unlikely have celiac disease, since I do not have other abdominal symptoms. For reference, I do have frequent constipation, excessive gas, frequent canker sore, etc. Do you think an upper endoscopy is recommended? I am a little hesitate considering the risk of this procedure and the fact that my symptoms are not that bad. I appreciate all suggestions.  
    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.
