Hale & Hearty Soups

Recommended Posts

I just e-mailed them a little while ago to see if any of their soups are gluten-free (and will ofcourse post the response when I get it); but does anyone happen to have any info.

I'm starving, and craving hot soup for lunch.

Last week I was in Hale & Hearty Soups in NYC. I spoke to the manager and he told me to look at the card on the back of each soup which lists ingredients. I had the white bean with spinach because all of the ingredients looked fine. I also think the tomato with rice was OK. I look forward to seeing what the company reply is.

P.S.

Ruby Foo's restaurant (Bway & 70's) has a gluten free menu. I ate there and apparently the cook's mom has celiac.

OMG seriously, Ruby Foo's has a gluten-free menu!! That's hysterical. I work about a block or so from there. To be honest working in Times Square (or NY in general) we make fun of all those places but sometimes you just have to give in. I smell a group lunch at RF tomorrow!! LOL!

I haven't heard back from H&H yet but will post when (if) I do.

I'd love to hear which Hale & Hearty soups are gluten-free too! And I'd love to hear about experiences eating out at Ruby Foo's. (I too work in the Times Square area.)

Keep us posted, please!

Ok so here's the response from Hale & Hearty. While Andrew was very polite he doesn't seem to know much about what we can and can't eat.

Response from Hale & Hearty Soups

Thanks for your email. I checked with our chef and although I cannot guarantee which soups do or do not contain gluten, I can tell you which soups would have specifically wheat, barley, rye or oats. As for wheat, I think flour would be the main issue and the only soups that contains white flour are our gumbos. We do use corn flour in some soups (typically soups that also contain corn) and I believe any soup with pasta should be avoided. There are also a number of soups that contain corn starch, which I do not know if it is a problem. As for barley, soups that contain barley are labeled as such (wild mushroom barley, chicken barley, etc.) Lastly, rye and oats are not specific products we use in any of our soups, although I guess it is possible that some ingredient could contain them. You can always ask a server for the list of ingredients in any of our soups. I hope that was helpful. Thanks again.

wow, you guys, that sounds great! I live in NYC too, and have enjoyed their soups. Plus, I never had a reaction (or one that I am aware of).

speaking of food and restaurants, have you tried Peters?????? I found this place and LOVE it. Theres a gluten-free Menu. I have had their pancakes, and I eat the chicken cutlet parmisan (Not the correct spelling, forgive me!) with pasta, sauce and garlic bread. Amazing. I eat there regularly with my fiance and he eats off the gluten-free menu too and loves it. The owner knows us.

Any other good places in NYC?

I've been meaning to try Peter's but haven't made it there yet. I've been to Risotteria a few times, which is awesome. A few of us are meeting there next Friday, Dec. 9th after work around 6:00. You should join us.

I know Sambuca has a gluten-free menu and I actually loved that place before finding out I had celiac disease so that's another one I've been wanting to get to.

Check out this link for restaurants that have gluten-free menus.

I find most places to be really accomodating.
