Ketchup Gluten Free?
0

12 posts in this topic

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.

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.

    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
