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.

Heinz

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.

    • As a GI specialty nurse who also has celiac I can tell you that it can not be diagnosed by CT and rarely unless you have severe disease can it be diagnosed by colonoscopy.  Those that have had it diagnosed by colonoscopy have such because their MDs were above to get into the small bowel from the bottom and take biopsys.  Celiac damage is not seen in the large intestine.  Also many people do not have diarrhea, many have constipation or a 50/50 mix between the two.  Celiac has 300 connected symptoms and sometimes no symptoms at all.  It's called the " great pretender" because of this.
    • Okay, thanks! I am 24 but my husband and I don't plan on having kids. However, the more I thought about it, the more I think I should get one for my brother's sake. Especially after my doctor's office called this evening to say my bloodwork tested positive for Celiac. Guess I will be on this forum longer than I thought!
    • You just got diagnosed Celiac and are wondering how serious this really is. What if there is just a little gluten in your food? What if you use the same toaster for your gluten-free bread as your wife's/husband's regular bread? What if those french fries are gluten-free but they fry them in the same fryer as those nice gluten coated onion rings? View the full article
    • Hi, I've never been on a forum before but thought I might find some answers here.  I have never been tested for celiac but a nurse practitioner I saw a few years ago told me she thought I would benefit from a gluten free diet.  At first, I thought I could never do this but after some encouragement I did try.  I did feel much better after going gluten free.  She never tested me for celiac. I turned 50 years old last year and I had a colonoscopy for the first time and had three polyps removed.  The surgeon said that my colon looked like I was a chronic laxative user.  I haven't used a laxative for a very long time.  I was at the time drinking a natural tea to help me to have bowel movements.  Before starting the tea I had always had difficulty with bowel movements and never had them once a day but with the tea I was able to go once a day. At the end of last month I developed severe pain after I would eat (I had my gallbladder removed at the age of 19).  One night the pain got so bad my husband had to drive me to the ER.  My liver functions were high as well as a few other things.  They did a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis that showed wall thickening of my transverse colon and minimal irregularity involving the transverse colon.  My descending and sigmoid colon were collapsed.  There were a few tiny mesenteric lymph nodes present on the right.  They diagnosed me officially with colitis but said that most likely I had a gallstone (even though I don't have a gallbladder) that had come from the liver and had gotten stuck in the common bile duct (it did not show up on the CT scan).  I usually have a high ferritin level too.  I've been home from the hospital stay for about a month now and still have tenderness in the epigastric area. Some of this may not have anything to do with celiac but was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with celiac by CT scan or colonoscopy or if anyone has had the same problems that I have had and found out what has caused it.  I cannot see the gastroenterologist who saw me in the hospital for a couple of months.  Can you have celiac and not have diarrhea as I am just the opposite? Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!  
    • I had an acne flair up after going gluten free but it ended up improving and some long-term back acne I had been dealing with actually went away.  I think going gluten free was a shock to my system and at first I actually felt worse but after about a month things got better.
