Yes, the regular is supposed to be gluten-free, but be careful which one you buy. Some of the Swanson's Broth (I believe it is their Organic line of broths) are NOT gluten-free. Make sure you read the labels.

I just had to add to this. this suprised me as well.

I was(ok still am...) in the hospital recently and got put on a clear fliuds diet only. Arg!! and even worse restriction than gluten-free, ok it was better cause before that I was on a water only diet and was being fed via IV.

Anyways, back to the clear foods diet. The kitchen here is supposed to be real good about following everyone's diet, they have been for my gluten-free diet when I can eat normal foods. However when I hit the clear foods diet they gave me a bowl of chicken broth.

I thought... "yeah right, I've never heard of any broth that is gluten-free". My Mom was visiting(Dad has had celiac 30+ years before they new much about it) and she agreeed

I told the nurse I needed something else as I couldn't eat chicken broth, she's was like, "oh no, its really just like a bouillon cube in water" So I started the explaination of how friggen Gluten seems to be in everythi\ng, it seems especially like that.

Basically, I ended up having them send me up packet from what they make it out of as I just was really untrust worthy at this point, I was sick and really didn't want to end up eating gluten, but also was very hungry.

And low and behold I saw it was made my Hormel, who, I know from past exp. actually has lots of gluten-free stuff, I quickly looked it up and found that they were right. It was gluten-free. Lots of flavors to pick from.

It was the Herbox boullian, tasted great, was happy to have found it.

Hormel lists a number of flavors

* HERB-OX® Bouillon: Beef, Chicken, Vegetable, Spicy Chicken, Garlic Chicken

Yep, Herb Ox buillion is gluten-free. It even says gluten free right on the label.

I also had a recent stay in the hospital and got nervous about the broth. But they double checked and said it was gluten-free. I was about to drink it when the nurse runs in and nervously asks if I had the broth yet? I hadn't but then she said they weren't sure about one ingredient that had glutamate in it. It ended up it was MSG (monosodium glutamate) and while I prefer not to have MSG if I can avoid it I was starved and was going to have the broth! It was gluten-free. Probably Herb Ox as well!

That's really funny, in that almost the same thing happened here. I looked it up, saw the ingredient my self on the box plus the website listing, and was happy. A bit later the nurse came in and said, "no, your were right! you can't eat it!" She found the ingredient listing as well and saw the glutemate and thought that was gluten. I had the same reaction. Ok... MSG sure I would normally avoid it, but holy crap am I hungry and want something now! Being pulled off food for 10 days, then switched to just a clear fluid diet will make you love your MSG :>
