Campbell's Canned Chicken Broth
0

15 posts in this topic

Campbell's Canned Chicken Broth- The ingredients look safe, but because most Campbells soups have gluten in them I never buy it. However, I'm sick and a friend brought me this brand. I googled trying to find out if it is safe or if anyone has had problems. It doesn't appear to be on Campbell's gluten free list. Only the Swanson brand is. So I'm a bit confused. I hate to trust it since so many of their products have gluten that it surely must be made on lines that process gluten ingredients. Just being careful. I really want to use it since I'm sick.

Anyone?

I use chicken bouillion cubes and make a stock from scratch with no problems. Good luck!

Call this number:

1-800-TRY-SOUP

You should be able to get the answer from them. Personally since it is not on their gluten-free list I would not use it.

You have to be careful with chicken bouillon cubes, too. When I was first diagnosed and cleaned out my pantry, I had a jar of chicken bouillon cubes that had wheat in them, which I donated to a food drive. HerbOx is gluten-free and says so on the label.

There are several canned or boxed chicken broths that are gluten-free and include Pacific Natural Foods, Progresso and Kitchen Basics. I just bought some from Food Lion, who now has My Essentials as their store brand, and it says gluten-free right on the label. There may be others but I always read the label.

I think the regular flavor has hydrolyzed wheat gluten in it. Do you have the regular? Or the low sodium?

Campbells soup ingredients are different in different countries.

I haven't used it or Swanson's in years because even the low sodium is not realy low sodium. Kitchen basics regular has less sodium.

You guys are great!!!

I always use Kitchen Basics and love it.

Jestgar-The canned chicken broth I have from Campbells is the low sodium kind.

No gluten ingredients but it isn't on their gluten free list so I am going to assume shared lines and donate it to the food bank.

Thanks everyone! And thanks for the number Ravenwood!

It just doesn't make sense to take a chance..I'm dealing with a cold and I don't want to make it worse by glutening myself. I need to start buying Kitchen Basics by the case so I don't run out. ;)

I knew you guys could help!!

Have you tried Better than Bouillon? It is a very thick paste that comes in jars and is actually made with chicken so it is meatier than other commercial broths/stocks I have tried. Many of their flavours are gluten free such as beef and maybe even the lobster. There are several gluten-free flavours.

Just another option. Looks like you have many other great suggestions, though! :D

I like your suggestion though, and I will try to find that. It sounds great! I know you are in Canada right? I hope we have it in the US!

I've seen Better than Bouillon at my local Wally World as well as other grocery stores so you shouldn't have too much of a problem finding it.

Oh cool! Thank you! And just to update you all about how careful I was not to ingest gluten and avoided the canned chicken broth. I then proceeded to gluten myself by eating Palmer's chocolate peanut clusters. No gluten ingredients. Says may contain tree nuts or peanuts. (which I took to mean would not contain traces of wheat) Not True! Um anyway, I ate them and felt really lousy and googled and Palmer's site says all of their candy is processed in a facility that process wheat products. Damn! I can't win. Now nauseous, tired, depressed, and achy and my DH sores are reacting and burning. I E-mailed them to ask why that nice label on their site was not on the bag. Wow.

But at least it wasn't the chicken broth. I'm sticking to Dove Chocolate from now on.

I just wanted to add, as Karen did, that Campbell's US and Campbells' Canada , have a very different gluten free listing. Canada gets more,the US gets SQUAT! B)

Oh, darn it. Companies with that labeling really concerns me - I see that here, too. Those dummies! :angry:

In Canada, Campbell's will clearly disclose any gluten ingredient by naming the grain in the ingredients list. Products which do not list such an ingredient are likely safe for most of us. The products that are labeled Gluten-Free in Canada are subject to additional controls and testing.

In Canada, the Campbell Soup Company has an ongoing project to review and revise their ingredients to reduce salt and to eliminate gluten where possible. To protect his privacy, I will not identify him, but I converse regularly with a senior management person there. His phone rings off the hook every time they change something.

These observations, again, apply to Canada only.

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
