    Celiac.com 11/12/2020 - We get more than a few questions about ketchup. Specifically, is ketchup gluten-free, and safe for people with celiac disease? The answer is that most all ketchup is made with tomato concentrate, distilled vinegar, sugar or corn syrup, salt, onion powder, spice, and natural flavors. All of these ingredients are naturally gluten-free and safe for people with celiac disease. That means the products are likely safe for people with celiac disease.

    However, many brands, like Hunt's and others, do not specifically label their ketchup as gluten-free. Like many products that are naturally gluten-free, many manufacturers don't bother to test their products and label them gluten-free.

    That's not necessarily a big deal, but some people like to play it safe and choose brands specifically labeled gluten-free. Many brands, like Annies, French's, Heinz, Organicville, Walden Farms, and Sir Kensington's specifically label their ketchup as gluten-free. That means it has been tested below 20ppm gluten content. For anyone with looking to be sure, look for brands of ketchup that specifically label their products as gluten-free.

    If you're looking for ketchup brands that are labeled gluten-free, here's a list of top brands of gluten-free ketchup.

    As always, trust your gut, and when in doubt, look for certified gluten-free products. If you see ingredients you're not sure about, check Celiac.com's list of Safe Gluten-Free Foods and Ingredients, along with our list of Unsafe Forbidden Gluten Foods and Ingredients.

    Celiac.com 06/25/2019 - Just in time for summer, here are ten of America's top gluten-free potato chip brands. True, potatoes are naturally gluten-free, and so are potato chips, unless they've got added gluten ingredients. However, many brands do not label their chips as gluten-free, and many of these chips may be made on shared equipment. That's not necessarily a big deal, but some people like to play it safe. These brands go the extra mile to make sure their chips are labeled "Gluten-Free," which means that you can breath extra easy about serving them to people with celiac disease.

    Celiac.com 06/24/2020 - For people with celiac disease, and those who are gluten-free for other medical reasons, it can be a battle to get a good, reliable brand and flavor of gluten-free ice cream. True, most ice cream is made without gluten ingredients and may be gluten-safe, even if not labeled "Gluten-Free." However, the trouble starts with added ingredients, especially cookies, or cookie dough, among others. Be especially careful of any cookies or cookie dough ingredients.
