Progresso must have changed their Cream of Mushroom soup as it used to be gluten-free but isn't on the list. What a shame.

Per a phone conversation to General Mills 12/4/09:

Due to their new gluten-free labeling, they can not label the Creamy Mushroom soup as gluten-free. General Mills has not verified all the ingredients from their suppliers for this particular product. The rep did state that General Mills does not add any gluten to this product.

The phone rep did not know if they planned on verifying the ingredients. She said they have not been given that info.

So - this is a change in labeling only. The ingredients in the product have not changed. If you felt safe using it before, you can make your own choice as to whether or not you still choose to use it.

I was also concerned about Progresso's Chicken & Rice and Chicken & Wild Rice soups since they aren't on the gluten free list and I've been eating them for 2 years.....with no problems, I might add. This is the written response I received from General Mills. It's actually the same answer that Cruelshoes received about the Cream of Mushroom but thought I would put it out there.

Thank you for contacting us about gluten in Progresso soups.

General Mills offers several products that are labeled gluten-free. Please check the package label for the gluten-free statement on the front/side/back of the package. Only products that can be verified to be gluten free will be declared as gluten free on the label. It is important to check the product label each time you purchase a product because it has the most accurate information about the product in the package.

Because we constantly strive to improve our products′ quality and nutritional value, the most up-to-date product information is on the package the product is purchased in. For that reason, we do not distribute product information lists as they could quickly become outdated.

For products not labeled gluten free, we will always declare gluten containing ingredients if they are added to the product. If the ingredient declaration lists wheat, oats, barley, rye, or derivatives of these grains, then the product contains gluten. Examples of derivative ingredients include: malt, barley malt, organic malt, semolina, Durham, triticale, and spelt. We do not include gluten containing ingredients in the ′Natural Flavors′ or ′Spices′ on the product ingredient list. If there are gluten ingredients in our products, those ingredients are always clearly listed.

If there are no gluten- containing ingredients listed in the product ingredient label, but the product does not make a gluten free claim, it is because we cannot fully assure that this product is gluten free. While we have not added gluten-containing ingredients, factors such as sourcing, conditions of manufacture, etc. do not allow us to provide the full level of assurance that a gluten free claim requires.

Additional information regarding gluten may be obtained by contacting your health care professional or:

I just purchased the Creamy Mushroom yesterday and just ate it, and the label still says gluten-free. Maybe they are slowly phasing out the labeling for that? I hope not...

As the definition of gluten-free is debated, many companies are deciding for legal reasons to remove the gluten-free claim from their labels. This does not imply any change in the ingredients or manufacturing processes. It just means that they want to avoid any potential liability in the event that gluten is found in their product as a result of a problem with a supplier beyond their control.

Oh I'm in heaven! I didn't know I could have ANY Cream of Mushroom soup again! (and Imagine is yucky)

Now I can cook my meats in mushroom soup again (pork steaks, liver "YES LIVER", chicken....add to my broccoli and cheese soup.......)

I'm gonna go get me some!!!!!!

Thank You!

Exactly. So far I can't find another brand that is gluten free. Looks like I am making it from scratch from now on.

    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I'm ok, just a little tired right now.  Lots of stress getting elderly parents and in-laws taken care of. My thyroid took a dip low (no surprise there) so I had to increase dose by a quarter grain. Overall, I am not dragging all day but waking up and getting going in the morning is slowwwwwwwww.  I'm sure you understand that! Yeah........Barty.  I thought of her for DAYS on end and it just saddens me to no end that such good people are the ones being taken.  Sometimes life is just so unfair. We all know that but there are times when it really hits you in the gut. There are times I think they are the lucky ones with the way the world is going these days. This terrorism plague is unnerving and I am really getting mad about it. Dear God, please stop this shyte!  I also miss nvsmom and others who have not been heard from. I hope she is feeling better and is just busy with life.  I got glutened on vacation about 6 years ago on the first day in Liverpool.  Jeez, was I sick!  I know how you feel but take heart........that was the last time I was bagged on vacation.  The longer you are gluten free and heal, the faster you recover from hits. You also get very good at not being glutened. It has been almost 2 years since it happened to me last so after 11 years gluten-free, I think I am doing well with that. I still have a little work to do with the vitamin D levels but I work so seeing much sun isn't happening.  My levels have doubled but they are still under 50. This whole Celiac thing is a part time job!

      Hang in there SLLRUNNER...it is hard and frustrating.  Good job getting that appointment moved up.  I've done too...I've called daily looking for cancellations.  I can also remember counting down the days until my appointment.  ((((Hugs)))) and please let us know how it goes.
    • So I've been glutened....
      Miso soup has gluten in it, doesn't it? =/ I know that I've been avoiding it, which is a big shame because I adore miso!
    • Kissing and gluten
      Hi guys. I know this is a topic that has come up before, but I'd appreciate a little bit of advice. I've been 'courting' a guy for the past few months; nothing has happened yet but we have a proper date in a few weeks which is likely to lead to kissing. He didn't even know what a ceoliac was until a few days ago; I don't think he'd caught the hints that I'd been dropping beforehand. English isn't his first language - he's east Asian. Anyway, I've heard about being potentially glutened via a kiss. How do I broach this? I don't want to scare him off or make him think that I'm a lot of hard work; I know, I know, he's going to have to accept me as I am, etc. but for someone new to the entire thing, it is likely overwhelming. It would be for me if I'd never heard of it! Do I laughingly bring it up beforehand? We aren't going for food so if he isn't eating, just having a cup of tea, will I still need to be careful? If this seems safe, do I just let him kiss me and then bring up afterwards that any future kisses after food will have different precautions?  It all feels so clinical! He's a lovely guy so I do think he'll be understanding, but if anyone has any advice of first hand experience on how to approach the topic without it being a weird moment, that would be great.  
    • gluten-free...how long til I feel better?
      Hi there.  I had been sick for over a year and decided to try and go off gluten within 4 weeks i started to feel better than i had for so long! But my problem is now i test negative for celiac because i have no gluten in my body. I have been told to go back on gluten so it can be determined if i have it or not but im not willing to go back to feeling that sick again!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
