Is Great Value Canned Chunk Chicken Breast gluten-free?

Recommended Posts

In the ingredients there is no mention of wheat, but there is chicken flavor which includes chicken broth (still no mention of wheat). I saw on the walmart website that 5 years ago someone said the product wasn't gluten-free. But, ingredients can always change.... I have just seen in the past that broth can contain wheat, but just wanted to make sure I can have some! Thanks!

If it contained wheat the label would have to say so. It's the law.

 

That being said, there is no law about labeling for barley. I would think it would be on the label anyway though. The only way to know for sure is to call the company and/or check their website. (It's been my experience that emailing is better. They could always deny a person on the phone told you it was gluten-free, but if they put it in writing they had better be right. Not only that, but half the time the people on the phone don't know what they're talking about but the person writing the email has time to double check and make sure.)


gluten-free since June, 2011

It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!

Life is good!

That's what I felt about them being required to say. Also, I have never seen barley in broth, so I believe I am safe. Thank you! Reassurance always helps :)
