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.

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 got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)
