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!

Thank you Kaiti! I don't use the paste, so it will not be a problem for me!

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.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?
