Gluten Free Chicken Broth...

I used some Swanson's Low Sodium last night, and it messed me up pretty bad... Does anyone know a good one to use that is for sure gluten free? The Campbell's website says Swanson is supposed to be ok, but after last night I'm not sure I trust it.

I've never used Swanson's, so I can't speak to whether it is "really" gluten-free, but I've never had a reaction from Pacific Natural Food's chicken broth! And I see it everywhere around here, even at Costco.

When I have to buy it I like Pacific Natural.

Most of the time I make my own broth. It's really easy if you have crock pot. I cook a whole chicken in my crock pot with onion, carrots, cerely, garlic and potatoes. Seasoned with whatever I want--I like lemon pepper or rotisserie style seasoning. I pick as much of the meat off as I can for meals and eat most of the veggies. Leave the bones and some leftover veggie bits in the pot, add water and cook on low overnight or for 8-10 hours. In the morning let it cool a little then strain through a mesh strainer. I freeze in Ball Freezer Jars. Then I just use one jar when a recipe calls for "a can" of broth. The jars are slightly larger than a 15 oz can I think but the amount works for most of my recipe just fine.

I use Kitchen Basics or Pacific. They have slightly different ingredients. I know one has mushroom & one doesn't. My SIL can't have mushrooms. MIght be something in the Swanson's that bothered you?

Usually the Kitchen basics has less sodium then the low sodium swansons. They also have a no salt if you can find it.

I just emailed Campbell's to see what the deal is. My guess is that it's a labeling issue. Their gluten free list is pretty vague and pathetic.

The Pacific & Kitchen Basics are tastier & lower sodium. If you buy them at Walmart or Target they are much cheaper than at the grocery around here. If you don't need so much, you can freeze half or they keep in the box in the fridge for awhile.

Yes Campbell's gluten free listing in the US is limited. Campbell's Canada is a bit more extensive.

Josh, I have used Swanson's Chicken Broth for years without a problem...but that's me. I have not used the Low Sodium.

We do like GlutenFreeManna. It's guaranteed safe and super easy.

Ditto to GFManna and DA. :) We use Pacific Naturals, but normally we make our own. It is way tastier and better for you than processed (even if you buy organic).

I also like Progresso chicken broth, as well as their beef broth (they're gluten-free). I have also used Kitchen Basics and right now have Pacific Homestyle (both chicken and beef), both of which are marked gluten-free on the box.

I'm sure there must be chicken broths out there that DO contain gluten, but I can't name one. Most are gluten-free.

Here's a pretty good list of broths (both gluten free and gluten containing):

http://surefoodsliving.com/2009/01/does-chicken-broth-contain-gluten-milk-soy-yes/

Granted this list is two years old, but the fact is there are many broths that contain wheat. There are also many gluten-free. For people taht are super sensitive to cc it's probably best to avoid brands which make both gluten containing and no gluten added broths. Swanson (the one the OP was concerned about) falls into that category (or at least it did back in 2009 when the post was written).

If I do not have my own on hand I use Better than Bouillon. It is a thick paste so you obviously must add water. The flavours are nearer to the real thing than most. They have all sorts of yummy flavours including mushroom, lobster, au jus, clam, fish... Some are kosher, some are reduced sodium. Most do not contain gluten but I believe a couple do.

For a really tasty prepared broth (beef or chicken) I use Emeril's or Rachel Ray's. Both are gluten free (not marked, but I called both companies)

I just had Swanson's Vegetable Broth last night in my soup. I have been sick ever since. I went and read the label this morning, and under the "2% or less" ingredients, it stated that there is yeast which is made from wheat extract in it. I found this post when researching other's problems with the same vegetable broth. At least I know I'm not the only one. Unfortunately, we are living abroad in Germany, and it is hard to come by less popular food products here, and gluten-free products are very hard to come by. Looks like I will be making my own broth from now on!

The info on this thread is a few years old.  Ingredients change over that time.  Also, ingredients can be different in different countries.  Soup seems to commonly have different ingredients in different countries.

I recently contacted B&G Foods (the manufacturer for Emeril's Stocks) and thought I'd give an update on threads mentioning them so we can have more recent information available:

Dear Consumer,

 

The Emeril's Organic Chicken stock does not contain gluten. 

 

However, Emeril's Organic Stocks are produced in facilities that contain wheat and gluten ingredients. While every precaution is taken to avoid cross contamination, we cannot guarantee that they do not contain trace amounts of these ingredients from other products that are manufactured within the same manufacturing facility.

    • What Are Your Brands & Flavors Of Gluten Free Ice Cream ?
      I don't worry about the same facility, but I check if it is on the same lines. I think it is usually a good idea to find out if things are made on shared lines. And if they are made on the same line as gluten-containing products how good is the cleaning in between? Chocolate is a good example of this. For example, I contacted a company whose chocolate I used to eat before being diagnosed and they outright told me they are not good about cleaning on shared lines and it is not safe for allergies or celiac. I have had this response from other companies as well (especially when it comes to chocolate sadly). I think this is why Godiva is not safe. Its just a good idea to check.
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      Wow you all have more balls than I do. I've been gluten free since 2007 and I'm still afraid of offending people. It gives me lots of troubles, really. I'm more like rockstarkate I guess...the "people pleasing" aspect.  I love how you all just have the flat out rule I Will Not Eat It Unless I or a Celiac Made it. (Or a trusted family member).  I still simper and grovel and cringe and apologetically turn things away.  People still put dishes in my face and say "This should be gluten free..."  and I have to awkwardly not eat it and then seem rude.  I've done the whole...checking the bottles thing too.  I do try to dart out of things more though now. I volunteered in other countries in recent years and I felt as vulnerable as all heck, having to rely on them to make food, as well as definitely feeling like I offended people who didn't get it at all. I was feeling brave when I signed up for those but after the second time I was like okay, the fear/anxiety/stress about the food is too much. I managed to dodge out of getting sick, and for the most part people humored me...but it was pretty difficult because I don't like offending people, especially other cultures, with them trying to be nice and make food for me...pretty sure I did offend people as well as annoy many others.  Anyway...no OP, you are not alone. For sure I have trust issues eating other people's food. They say they know but I do truly doubt they are as strict as I would be.   A few times I will still brave eating something...like some little mozzarella balls with vinegar...though, I did still look at the labels.  Someone had to give me a persuasive speech and show me all ingredients (just salt and pepper) after making me chicken wings once. I do tell people, basically, NOT to make me stuff. But they still do.  Another time a friend had worked really hard and was having a terrible time and offered me a burger patty when I arrived, assuring me it was gluten free. I knew I hadn't been there to watch whether she used the "bun spatula" on it or not...but I just didn't feel like giving her a fight about it since she was having a rough time and hosts like to feel they are feeding guests, blah blah. So I ate it. And got glutened. And wailed and gnashed my teeth haha. Lesson learned.  I need to stick to my guns more. I just always feel like I'm being too "difficult" as it is. But...sigh.  It is refreshing for me to read these empowered no BS responses though. You all remind me of where I'm coming from, and not that I'm just being some kind of high maintenance, rude, crazy person. You'd think after, what, nine years now, I wouldn't still be bothered by it...
    • Mashed potato soup during healing
      I was on pretty much a liquid diet for 8 months waiting for my nausea to go away completely. I mostly had mashed potato soup, 1/2 fat ice cream (mostly whey, not milk), chocolate drink (no added milk) and gummy vitamins. The soup tasted yummy and I'm still alive so I figured I'd share it for people not feeling well in the beginning. I've been noticing people with alot of trouble keeping food down in recent posts. I couldn't have milk or eggs, but the cheese in the recipe didn't bother me at all. Notice the lack of spices. Makes it easy on the stomach.   Mashed potato soup: Boiled yukon gold potatoes (5lb bag) 1 package cauliflower, steamed 4-6 slices of Land O'Lakes white American cheese 4 tablespoons butter salt 16 cups homemade chicken broth, salted   Chop steamed cauliflower into teensy bits (pureed is better). Put in mixer with butter, cheese and a potato or two. Blend while slowly adding potatoes. Keep whipping for a few minutes to insure the cauliflower and potatoes are not lumpy at all. Salt to taste.   Combine 1/2 cup mashed potatoes to 1 cup salted chicken broth. Mix with spoon until mashed potatoes have completely dissolved. Enjoy. Individual servings can be frozen.   Homemade chicken broth: makes 8 - 10 cups of broth   1 organic chicken (regular chickens are too big) 1 stalk celery 1 carrot 1 large bay leaf 1/2 package fresh thyme from the  herb section of the vegetables area   Put all ingredients in pressure cooker along with 1.5 liters water. Bring to pressure. Cook for 35 minutes. Separate broth from solids. Separate broth from fat. Add ridiculous quantities of salt until it tastes like soup. Sorry I use a salt grinder so I don't have precise salt quantities.    
    • I have kidney stones...spent last night at the ER
      Hey ArtG, I saw the urologist today...unfortunately for me they can still see my stones on an xray.  Sigh.  The largest is 3x6 in my right kidney.  He does not believe I can pass this one on my own.   All of my bloodwork came back fine.  Nothing alarming in the urinalysis either. His recommendations...keep drinking tons of water.  I had 4.2 liters of urine output when I tested.  Add in a fish oil supplement.  Decrease sodium intake.  Limit meat to 10 ounces per day.  Increase dietary calcium.   Work at lowering oxalate consumption...my urinary oxalate was 45.  They want it between 20 and 40.  But he gets people that are over 100 so mine is not all that high. 3 options...1. watch and wait.  Recheck in a few months to see if there is stone growth.  2. Shock wave lithotripsy.  3. Let it come out when it decides to and see what happens. I just don't know.  I hate the idea of being put under as they would do for the shock wave thing.  I've had too many surgeries already.  It scares me to be honest.  I also don't want to deal with another episode.   I don't know what I'll do.  We've got a vacation planned at the end of the month and I just want to go and enjoy that.  Not worry about kidney stones. I'm sorry to hear about your upcoming surgery...it really is always something!
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I know what food products are. Probiotics was a recent example I saw on the news about things labeled gluten free that were not gluten free. So, supplement labels in addition to food labels.

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
