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!

God bless,

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 :>

      If you cant be sure then don't eat it!  
    • 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.

      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.
