Amy's Soups
0

13 posts in this topic

For lunch I had Amy's Split pea soup. Now normally I make my own everything but I was in a hurry and didn't have lunch ready. So I had this for lunch and I think I'm reacting to it. It says gluten-free on the can but has anyone had issues with this brand by any chance? I eat all the ingredients in it with no problems, I don't know what's causing my stomach ache now. I feel like I've been glutened.

Thanks.

I had a reaction to the frozen pizza. The enchiladas I was ok with though (weird).

I can't speak to the Split Pea but I had a very bad reaction to the Tomato.

I actually thought I caught the flu because I was feeling just like it, and a friend of mine was sick a few days before. Then my Husband comes home from work and I tell him I'm not feeling good. He picks up the empty Amy's Tomato Soup can from the recyclable bin.

"Did you eat this?"

"Yeah..."

"It has gluten in it..."

"No it says its gluten free right on the back."

"Yeah but right under that it says it is processed on equipment that processes wheat... in itty bitty letters"

"!@#$%^%**#$"

You may want to double check the can. I have a hard time trusting Amy's anymore. And I loved their Black Bean Chili. :(

Unfortunately Amy's is known for its cross contamination. I have had a reaction to their products. Pre-gluten free I could eat it. Post gluten free I won't touch is again. I had a delayed reaction and I got dizzy and was sick for 6 hours. Be fair warned Amy's can have cc.

Awww ... I haven't even tried my Annie's soups since going gluten-free. I'll double-check all my cans and make sure they don't have the "same equipment" label.

I just don't like the Amy's products I've tried. The pizza was over-priced and I had a problem afterwards. I bought a tortilla something-or-other that wasn't tasty and my stomach actually hurt afterwards. Then I tried a can of Black Bean Soup and it was just YUCK! So I've crossed Amy's off my list permanently.

While it's nice to have an occasional prepared food, my own home-cooked are so much better so I try to keep a stash in my freezer for those times I come home late or get busy and just don't feel like cooking.

As far as prepared soups are concerned, I find Progresso to be so much better.

Thanks girls, I really think it was the soup. I am still reeling from that reaction. I feel sick and flu-like. My joints are swollen and achy again and plus big D and all that,sigh. Never gonna buy that again. I feel horrible that I gave that to my kid who is gluten-intolerant.

If it's made in the same equipment as wheat then why call it gluten-free? No good!

I hate feeling sick...uggh. Thanks for all the replies. No more Amy's for me.

So sorry you feel so bad!

And I'm right there with you on the guilt. :( I was sending Amy's gluten free microwave meals, like the gluten-free mac and cheese, with my daughter to sleep overs, and half the time she'd come back having a gluten reaction. I thought for a long time she wasn't washing her hands or being careful enough with CC while in their house. Wasn't until she had the same meal at our gluten-free house one night and still got sick that we finally figured it out.

Feels so bad to know we zapped our babies, huh? But at least now we know so none of us will get sick again. Hoping that you feel better real soon.

If you had a reaction to one of Amy's products and still have the package please call the company. They'll retest that batch for gluten and let you know the results.

I have 7 diagnosed food allergies/intolerances. If I eat even a tiny bit of one of my allergens, my excruciating gut pain and bloating (or tachycarida with cane sugar) tell me within a few hours that I've consumed an allergen. I've eaten several varieties of Amy's soups (which don't contain my allergens). I must carefully read the ingredients to determine whether a specific Amy's product is safe for me. However, I've never had any problems with the 3-4 varieties of Amy's soups that don't contain my allergens. Obviously I can't eat all of Amy's products, because many contain dairy, soy or cane sugar, to which I react strongly.

I'd say it was the fact you ate split pea soup! Ok teasing. I can't stand the stuff but I have eaten AMY's frozen goods before without an issue. Their can goods are WAY more than I am willing to pay. I have also heard of the CC with that brand. I sure hope you feel better, and soon!

I'm still feeling icky but I'm getting there. In response to Janet, I already threw the can so I don't have the batch number. Oh well. I learned my lesson.

I still feel like flu and feeling exhausted, no energy, swollen/achy joints, headache. My stomach's not so bad, thanks everyone for all your help!

I had avoided trying Amy's products simply because I could see that there were other, non-gluten free items that they make too and I figured there would be cross-contamination. Glad I decided to avoid it! (Sorry to hear about your reaction though.) I'm going to continue to stick with companies that have "dedicated gluten free facility" on the label!

    • Toblerone
      I don't eat chocolate often, but I have never had a gluten reaction to Toblerone. I trust it to be gluten-free.
    • So I've been glutened....
      I am so sorry for how your feeling.  I can sympathize; over time I notice I couldn't have any type of gluten free products.  I read that since you don't have villi in your small intestines you have no defenses, meaning even the tiniest bit of exposure causes a flare up.  I even have to be careful when I purchase products by reading the labels to ensure it says manufactured by a nut, soy, milk and wheat free facility.  Be very careful, unfortunately
    • Symptoms despite strict gluten-free -- new here
      I have been reading a lot about leak gut syndrome which is new to the medical community in the sense that they don't know how to manage it.  If (you are female) make sure to do a yearly pap and uterine check to ensure there is no issues there.  If you are not a female then definitely confirm with an endoscopy if your small intestines are still damaged.  I am looking into doing the leaky gut diet to see if it will help, the book I am reading is "Eat Dirt" by Dr Josh Axe.  Especially since I notice anytime I am exposed to gluten by accident my symptoms are worse each and every time.  I know get severe back and rib cage pain, with bloating, gurgling and diarrhea with severe nausea.  I am willing to try anything and I am now reading this book and applying the diet to see if I can heal my intestinal lining.
    • Help
      Ok so I had my colonoscopy & endoscopy last Thursday. Don't get results until July 13th as GI is on vacation. I've had bad pain in my lower left abdomen that wraps around to my lower back as well for the past 4 days..even hurts to touch lightly. Went back to the ER & they did an ultrasound & CT scan. The Doctor said that I have "prominent" lymph nodes in the area that is painful as well as thickening & inflammation of my Sigmond colon? Um ok what is that all about? Kind of freaking out over the whole swollen lymph nodes thing. Has anyone ever dealt with this before? 😒

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
