ok, this may sound like a stupid question, but do I need to be concerned about any canned tomato sauces, tomato paste, and diced tomato? I am making chili tomorrow and I bought a brand of tomato sauce that says "gluten free", however many of the other sauces list their ingredients (tomatoes, water, spices, etc) and do not seem to have any contaminants. I mean I figure canned green beans and carrots are fine, but tomato sauce when they list 'spices' or something, I just wonder if there is a possibility of it containing gluten. Also the tomato paste I was concerned it might have some thickening agent in it that could be problematic.

You do need to be concerned enough to read the label, but if there is no wheat listed there (and barley, rye and oats are highly unlikely), you should be just fine.

Do you live in the U.S.? By law, they have to list wheat containing items. Do be careful with the paste though i've heard of one kind that has it added (clearly listed though).

ALWAYS read the label.
But hidden ingredients aren't really a concern here, imho.
