Hi Everyone!

Does anyone know if store brand ketchup has gluten in it? I used Giant brand catsup and got sick 2 nights in a row! The ingredient that I am suspicious of is "natural flavors" I did read somewhere that Heinz brand is gluten-free, so I will be buying that brand from now on!
Thanks!

Clan Thompson list of gluten-free Foods has about 50 Giant Brand foods including mustard and other sauces, but not ketchup. All of the items listed are gluten-free.
Clan Thompson has about 20 different ketchup's listed and all of them are gluten-free, including Safeway, HyVee, Winn Dixie, and other supermarket brands. But not Giant brand!

I generally buy Heinz for same reason as you, but have had Giant brand in the past. I have never had a problem with Giant brand ketchup or any ketchup in a restaurant (even in foreign country).
Hmmm.

Thanx for your reply, Franceen! I am a newbie, so am still figuring it all out. This blog is great!

The list is a subscription (download the product), but there are some free things on the site. Here is the link:
http://www.clanthompson.com/index.php3

They have programmed their application not to allow copy and paste because it is a pay-for subscription. I find this list very helpful, plus they include an "ingredients checker" which helps with stuff you find on labels as ingredients - like "pregelatinized starch" etc.

There are other lists on the web that are free out there and have been included in many posts here. I rely on Clan Thompson, the mgf sites/email to mfg and my own reading of labels.

If someone else can post some of the free lists on the web, that would be helpful to you!

I use Annie's Naturals Organic Ketchup. It is labeled gluten free. I've never seen it in a regular grocery store. I find it at WholeFoods or Healthfood stores.

I haven't found any Ketchup that isn't gluten-free - main brands anyway.look them up on website.

Hunts is a Con- Agra product. con- Agra says they will clearly label gluten of any type.

Heinz and Hunts are both gluten free!
I think Hunts back in 2005 or so used to have wheat in their ketchup but not anymore.
Those are the only two I ever use so I'm not sure about any others.

It is. But nevertheless, I am not aware of a ketchup in Canada or the US that currently contains gluten. Once upon a time, Heinz Organic Ketchup contained malt vinegar (barley). It contains a different, gluten-free, vinegar today.
