I read other posts about this specific Progresso Chowder and some of them said the thick and hearty is gluten-free but Traditional is not.

Others said Progresso labels what allergens are in it and on the Traditional Clam Chowder it lists only clam, milk, soy, lobster, shrimp, crab, tuna, cod, and fish ingredients.

So can I assume its gluten-free?

Others also said that Progresso is a Betty Crocker product but it says General Mills on the label (they may or may not own Betty Crocker I don't know).

Nothing sounds like wheat but there are a few chemical ingredients in it like: disodium guanylate, disodium inosinate... sounds awful but I have a huge yen for Clam Chowder and I don't have the ingredients to make t from scratch.

Thanks for any help... answer soon... I'm hungry!

My daughter eats that, the Chicken/Rice/Vegetable, and the corn chowder with no problem.

I think it's ConAgra and they are good labelers.

They are a good company for labeling. Just be sure to read the label every time. The split pea used to be gluten free but they changed it and it got me cause I was so used to eating it I didn't look. The ingredients still looked safe but they had added a contains wheat warning. Although I was unhappy with the change at least they labeled it clearly.

Progresso and Betty Crocker are both GM products. http://www.glutenfre...lists/index.htm

At one point, a couple of years ago, when I was looking for a clam chowder, the thick and hearty was gluten-free and the traditional clearly had wheat listed (not hidden).

Its apparently changed and many have said that both are now gluten-free!

All progresso soups clearly list Allergens. I only eat Progresso, and Healthy Choice soups. Both list Wheat clearly. The new Progresso Clam Chowder (the one that list Lobster) is killer! Best chowder I ever ate.
