Kudos to General Mills

I say Kudos to General Mills.

I used to eat Campbell's Soups, but they have told me that not a single one of their soups is gluten-free, and despite emails from me encouraging them to convert their soups to gluten-free status (any soup without pasta or barley can be made gluten-free without a significant change in taste or texture), they have refused to do so. Phooey on them, I say!"

General Mills, however, has taken my suggestions to heart. At first it was just a couple of the Progresso soups that were gluten-free. But last week when I was at Giant Food I discovered about 6 or 8 Progresso soups that now have "Gluten Free" on the label! Yeah General Mills! Finally I can have some convenience in my life, and not have to

make every soup from scratch.

So, I wrote an email to General Mills, applauding their response. They wrote back telling me that they have launched a new web site: www.liveglutenfreely.com. About this they said, "The website offers a list of over 200 products from General Mills that are gluten free. We also offer a number of gluten free recipes and the opportunity to join our gluten free newsletter.  As a member of the newsletter you will be the first to receive information regarding new gluten free products and promotions."

I have been so heartened by General Mills' sympathy toward our dietary needs. Do send them an email thanking them, and encouraging them more on this path! Love it!

In the rare instance that "modified food starch" is made from wheat, it will say so in the ingredients or Contains statement. If you wonder what it is made from, email or call and ask. I think its usually corn or potato Progresso is part of a large company. they would not label something gluten-free unless they know it is. Its a law in the US and Canada.

Progresso soup check the label on their gluten free products, modified food starch is not gluten free.

A recent issue of JAMA, the US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) critically examines screening for celiac disease in asymptomatic adults, adolescents, and children. Celiac disease exhibits a broad spectrum of symptoms, from subtle or no symptoms to severe malabsorption. Celiac diagnoses have increased significantly over the past few decades, in part because of greater awareness, but possibly because of an actual increase in disease rates. Researchers estimate current rates of celiac disease at 0.71% among US adults, and 0.76% among US children. View the full article

I have notice that I am sick much less often.

Thanks everyone. I appreciate the answers. I'm waiting to hear back from her dr and then we will go from there. If the dr doesn't think the results show anything then I will get a second opinion thanks to everything that has been shared on here. I will make sure and not change her diet for now. I am planning on getting tested myself, I have had suspicions since last summer that I could have it. I have a form of autoimmune arthritis, just unclear exactly what it is at this time. I going to ask to be tested for celiac at my next appt though.
