No one knows? I emailed them, but no answer. I just thought someone would know.

I got a bag of the frozen chicken you are talking about at WalMart... I have had it a couple of times and haven't noticed any problems. I was going to call them about the broth in it but forgot before I left for work.

There should be a toll free line on the bag you can call.

I just called really quick and asked -- did't get into detail though about what type of broth (ahh forgot, I am on lunch right now at work). The rep at the contact phone number said that the broth is gluten free and so is that chicken.

All plain meats/chicken/etc are gluten free. By law, any grain must be listed on meat products.

Its gluten free.

Thanks all. It just said chicken broth and not what was in the broth. So I just wondered. Thanks again.

Thanks so much for doing the leg work on this for me! I usually buy the Great Value brand at Walmart, but they were out and I bought the Tyson brand. Forgot to check on gluten-free status until just now when I'm about to throw it in the oven. Thanks so much!

I'm not sure if they have gluten or not, but I do know that I always react to Tyson chicken, along with Holly Farms, Great Value, and Kroger brands, all of which say they contain a broth solution. The reaction is just like a gluten reaction, maybe even a tad more violent than if I simply ate a loaf of bread. But it's bad.

I've since switched to other brands of chicken like Perdue (they provide a gluten-free list on their website), some Food Lion frozen chicken (that uses only a salt/water solution), Harvestland, and locally-raised options...and I never react to them.

I did a test to confirm my suspicions, and isolated it to the chicken after having continued gluten-like reactions to simple dishes like chicken and rice. When I switched chicken suppliers, the reactions went away and have been gone for more than 8 months.

Not sure why that would be, but I avoid Tyson products now as a result to be on the safe side. I don't even have chicken in a restaurant unless I can verify its source, it's too risky and I react too horribly to it to take the chance.

"I always react to Tyson chicken, along with Holly Farms, Great Value, and Kroger brands,"

I've used all of those brands except GV and they are gluten-free.

Hi All,

I know I'm arriving late to this conversation but I found this thread today as I was doing a bit of research (somehow I just realized that the boneless skinless chicken breasts I've been purchasing for 3 years may have had gluten in them - yikes!). Anyway, I did a search on the Tyson website and found this information:

http://www.tyson.com...en-Chicken.aspx

It specifically states,

"INGREDIENTS:

Boneless, skinless chicken breasts with rib meat contains up to 15% natural chicken broth. ALL NATURAL CHICKEN BROTH INGREDIENTS: Chicken broth, salt, natural flavorings.

CONTAINS NO ALLERGENS"

This may be old news to everyone else, but it was helpful/reassuring for me :)

I'm also responding late to this thread, but when I read this last response I had to comment.  I'm not celiac, but have a multitude of food intolerance, which cause extreme inflammation in my whole body and many physical repercussions.  I'm Always finding something else that titles up my body even when I thought I was eating safely.  

Please be aware that natural flavoring is something you should avoid.  It is listed on ingredient lists, but they don't tell you what is in it!  I have too avoid it like the plague, along with caramel coloring.  They both very often include a wheat derivative.  

I just ate two different kilter products, a fresh Turkey for thanksgiving and a Tyson whole chicken yesterday.  I have reacted to both. 😭😭.  The solution is the culprit.  There was no other foods that were suspect because they were freshly prepared veggies and sweet potatoes which don't bother me.

This is so frustrating....    There are many other additives and preservatives that also affect me.  So I eat fresh only... Make all my own food.  

Hope this helps someone who still reacts when they think they're eating cleanly but react.

Please do not spread rumors like this on the board. These 2 items are a huge misconception. Please read the following links:

If natural flavors and carmel coloring were glutening celiacs then most of us would be dead by now.

Squirming itch is right.  I drank a Diet Coke on Saturday during a party and I did not get glutened.  It was full of Carmel coloring.  There was not any safe party food for me.  Diet Coke is not healthy, but at least I looked like I was indulging in something!

    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
