I made some pasta tonight, and normally, would use del monte or hunt's. I decided to try out Barilla pasta sauce because it did not list anything I was allergic to. I am allergic to soy, and both Ragu and classico have soy in them. So I ate my pasta with the barilla sauce, 2 hours later, my body had started to become shakey and my stomach hurt. Then I had some slight D.

My question is, has anyone else had a problem with barilla sauces? Thanks. :rolleyes:

Many Barilla pasta sauces that are made and distributed in Italy are not only free of gluten but the company also declares (to the Italian Celiac Association) that they are free of any possible contamination. I'm not sure about soy, though, but I would gather that the company is very stringent about disclosure.

Maybe let their consumer hotline number know and see what they have to say.

This is their stance on gluten but I couldn't find anything on soy.

"Is Barilla Sauce gluten free?
Barilla does not add gluten to the raw materials used to make our sauces. At the present time, however, we cannot guarantee that our sauces are absolutely gluten free."

http://www.barillaus.../Pages/faq.aspx

If they don't have a phone number on the jar perhaps they have an email contact through the site to ask about the soy issue.

Well, i'm also pretty sensitive to soy, but I did not read anything on the lable implying that there was soy in the product. Thanks guys, that might explain my question <_< . hehe. No more barilla sauces for me. :lol:

It's hard to say whether it was a reaction to the Barilla or whether you had a virus. Unfortunately, the only way to know for sure is to try the Barilla again and see if you have the same response--and it's certainly understandable if you don't want to try that again!

I used classico and got sick. I posted it, and everyone said that it might not be gluten, but just the acid in the sauce. They have recipes for less acidic sauces . Good luck.

I'm pretty sure it was the barilla sauce. But anyway, I feel fine now. I only had D once since eating it.

I have been glutened by Barilla pasta several times over several months. It took me a while to figure it out, because I kept saying "it's labeled Gluten-Free". I have been sooooo sick. I used the same pasta sauce that I always use; "Prego" usually Traditional or with Mushroom flavor. I've tried the pasta with olive oil as well, and it's still making me sick.

Just an FYI - This thread is from 2008.

 

The pasta is certified gluten-free and made in a dedicated gluten-free facility.

Well, I think it is still gluten free. I serve it to my hubby who never reacts (he is my canary!) I do not eat it because I am allergic to garlic. Sometimes tomatoes, part of the nightshade family) bothers me. Also I am intolerant to mushrooms. Have been for 20 years. Just tested it again with some sautéed mushrooms and I got sick.

Chances are you are reacting to something other than gluten!

FYI, Most of the info in this thread is 7 years old, so be sure to update yourself on some more current product info before buying pasta sauce.

i use prego with no problems.  lots of the prego varieties are labeled gluten free :)  i usually make my own sauce but jar sauce is good for 'cheat' nights when i'm lazy ;)  i can't swear, but i think i've eaten the barilla with no problems, either.  i have a soy sensitivity, but if i don't overdo it, i can sneak a little.  i have been on the gluten free diet for 4+  years, so i might be more healed up and able to handle it...
