Progresso Soups
0

11 posts in this topic

Just in case some of you are fond of Progresso Soups, recent changes have made some unsafe for celiacs.

When they took out the MSG some formulas/recipes changed and some that WERE on the OK list are no longer safe (such as my former favorite: Chicken with Wild Rice).

Here is a link to the updated General Mills site that lists gluten free items:

You can print out a PDF "pocket list" for shopping.

I had seen this list not too long ago, and I was totally excited by the creamy mushroom! I'm planning on trying it to see if I can use it in casseroles like I used to make with campbell's. Also the chicken cheese enchilada soup is SO good!! I want to try baking chicken with that poured on top. My 10yo son LOVES the lentil, and the clam chower also. I'm so glad that progresso has some things available!!

Chicken with Wild Rice is also my favorite and must-have to keep on hand at all times. I hadn't seen this list but I just bought several cans this week. All of them had the new "No MSG" white banner across the top of the label - and nothing is in the list of ingredients that would make be think it contained gluten. The label also clearly states "Contains SOY" in their allergen list.

I bought the regular chicken and rice soup and it, too, had the new label but didn't list anything suspect.

I really hope these were simply omitted from the list. There aren't too many commercial canned soups we can eat.

I know, I still always scanned the label, even if I thought it was on the OK list. Even though I didn't see anything bad, they have removed Chicken with Wild Rice from their new gluten free list. I stopped buying it. If they took it off the list I felt there must be a reason and I no longer trust it. (PS love your cat!)

I called today and confirmed that the reason Chicken and Wild Rice was removed is because it may have been processed in a facility where it was subject to gluten contamination. Frustrating--and unfortunately lends credence to my paranoia about labeling--but at least there is some consistency (the list, their web site, the absence of explicit "gluten free" label).

I am not so sure Progresso soups labeled gluten free. I had cream of mushroom soup yesterday, that was labeled gluten free and I am still sick today. I won't trust it again.

If you are new to the diet, everything and anything could bother you. Your intestines are a mess and they are trying to heal. It's also possible that something else in the soup or that you ate bothered you.

If a food makes you feel bad, don't eat it. That does not mean it isn't gluten free.

Progresso is a part of General Mills.

"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. It is important to check the package label before purchasing for the gluten-free statement on the front/side/back of the package to verify that the package you choose is gluten free.

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. (I bolded that part.)

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."

A company statement could not be any more honest or clear.

Perhaps you cannot tolerate the dairy? Are you newly diagnosed? if so, lactose may be an issue.

Temporary secondary lactose intolerance is very common.

Also. you are still healing your gut and many foods may give your grief at first. It is not always hidden gluten causing the problem.

Just a suggestion. :)
