Contadina Tomato Products?
0

12 posts in this topic

I'm trying my hand at my first gluten-free lasagna (yipes!), and as it's the weekend, there's no one at Contadina's phone #--I've bought their diced tomatoes, paste, and sauce because I've heard they are gluten-free. Does anyone know for sure if these Contadina products are gluten-free?

Thanks for any help anyone has!

Thanks for the offers of help! Going off the ingredients alone, I think they are gluten-free--I'm mostly worried about CC issues.

Tomato paste ingredients: tomatoes (thus, I'm assuming this one's fine :P )

Sauce ingredients: tomato puree (water, tomato paste), salt, high fructose corn syrup, citric acid, garlic powder, onion powder, spices

Diced tomatoes: tomatoes, tomato juice, salt, citric acid, calcium chloride.

Thus, the things that worry me are the spices in the sauce--I did some poking around another forum last night, and there seems to be the consensus that Contadina products are gluten-free, but those unnamed spices worry me. Maybe I'll just add water to the paste and just use the paste and the diced tomatoes.

At any rate, thanks again for the help--anything look suspicious to you in these ingredients?

I have contacted the company in the past (about 6 months ago) and all the tomato sauces, tomato paste, crushed tomatoes, and tomato puree were gluten-free. Tania Greenville, PA

Those look fine as far as gluten is concerned.

Kaiti, let us know what they tell you this time around!

Thanks everyone for your help! I like to make my own sauces, so it's nice to know that Contadina appears to be gluten-free.

Thanks again for all the help--I just love this board!

Where did you get gluten-free lasagna noodles??? Or did you use something else.

I found some pre-cooked gluten-free polenta at a specialty store, sold in a tube similar to how you'd buy ground sausage. It's a solid piece and suggested slicing the polenta lengthwise and substituting it for lasagna noodles. I did that a few weekends ago, and MAN was it good!!!!! I hadn't had lasagna in almost 4 years. Plus my husband found some gluten free beer Bards at a store and bought me a six pack. I was in heaven.
