Is their boneless, skinless chicken breast gluten free? I see they have added broth.

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'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 :)
