I wonder what people are using to flavor and thicken their tomato sauces..I had been been using Hunts tomato paste, but it doesn't say it is gluten-free on the label, and therefore I stopped using it, I might have to order something online if I cant find something where I live....

I use Hunts, usually.  Or the generic store brand. 

 

Contadina did have a "flavored" tomato paste with flour added.  But that's the only one I have seen.  http://www.contadina.com/products/paste-italian-italian-herbs.aspx

Well I would much prefer to continue buying Hunts, I like it! and I don't have a lot of options, and so if you are using it than I guess I can  too..also I just found out that it is suitable for vegans...thanks!

I just found this...it appears  that Gluten is not added to Hunts tomato paste but if you scroll down it says...While the below foods do not contain added gluten, validation and testing on the food below is not complete.
 
Wesson® Oils: all varieties
Hunt's Tomato Sauces (excluding pasta sauces)
Hunt's Tomato Paste
Ketchup: Hunt's all varieties
RO*TEL® Tomatoes (excluding sauces)
 
 
 
So it appears that whilst this product does not have any Gluten added, they dont want to label it as such,  possibly due to the possibility of cross contamination, I dont really know.  
 
I think I am just going to use it.

I don't know where you live, but if you live anywhere near a tomato sauce/paste plant - I can't see where the cc would come in?    IF they don't add wheat to their tomato products.... You don't use the same equipment to farm. harvest and process wheat as for tomatoes.  I bet they just don't want to have to raise the price of the sauces/pastes by testing every batch for gluten that they know they don't have around.

Yep I think your right!..it all comes down to money.   I feel okay with this though, and I'm glad I asked because I have been using Heinz tomato sauce, which is not great for cooking with.

I use Hunt's tomatoes, sauces & paste. I use Heinz catsup. No problems. Wheat has to be labeled and I can't see where there would ever be barley in tomato sauce, paste or tomatoes or catsup.

Hunt's is a Con-Agra product. Con Agra is GREAT about labeling. Hunt's is safe.


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!

Thank you everyone, much appreciated.  I think it takes a while to feel confident in reading labels, and then believing that you have read the labels correctly!   I have used it a few times now since posting and its really really good!  Thank God for this site!

 

On a different matter I have been searching online for a gluten free and dairy free  balsamic vinegar!! and it has been quite hard to find but I found one on Amazon eventually its Lucini Balsamic Vinegar of Modena.   Now that I cant have butter on my bread I realized that I actually LOVE a good quality olive oil with balsamic vinegar..I have even ordered my own toaster today!! Yippee! :)

As bartfull said, Con Agra (Hunt's) will clearly disclose gluten content. If you don't see it listed, it isn't there.

What balsamic vinegar contains gluten or dairy? I haven't even seen cheap ones that do.

Balsamic Vinegar has caramel coloring in i,t and some brands of caramel coloring use lactose, a milk sugar, to help get that rich color in Balsamic vinegar.   Then I looked on the website of "Go Dairy Free"and read the following....which is even more worrying as it mentions wheat, which I had never heard of before.   I don't want to risk the fact that it might have dairy or even wheat in it too!
 
"Caramel Color – Anything with caramel in its title may sound like a dairy red flag, but caramel color is typically derived from corn syrup and occasionally from potatoes, wheat, or other carbohydrate sources. While lactose is a permitted carbohydrate in the production of caramel color, it is rarely, if ever used"

Zebra, do you access to Earth Balance butter? It's a great substitute for folks who can't have dairy.

I am afraid not..its a blow! but yesterday I tried putting a thin layer of coconut oil on my home made bread with my home made marmalade, and it was very good, except I had stomach ache for the rest of the day from the skins of the marmalade ha ha! but no matter, I can make that again without the skins, and so I feel a bit happier today knowing that I really did enjoy the bread with the coconut oil and marmalade..I think I can happily use coconut oil, its a different one to the last one I ordered and it has a better taste.

The 2 kinds in my cabinet don't have coloring.  Maybe look at the more expensive brands?

 

 

edit - I forgot.  You are in another country with limited choices, aren't you?

Yes....but I buy everything on Amazon so its not too bad, and so I am just waiting for it to arrive, its like three times the price of what I usually spend,  but I don't really care, and it should taste lovely.

Do you have 2 day delivery overseas or do you have to wait longer? (not sure which country you're in)

 

I use Amazon to ship items to my friends in Micronesia, but it takes awhile to get there.

Everything I order is shipped to Miami Florida first, and then it is shipped to Costa Rica, and so I can be waiting a couple of weeks, sometimes longer, it doesn't bother me really, its like Christmas time every month!, I order a lot from Amazon.
