Is ketchup gluten free?

I did a site search & all I found about it were in recipes. Some specified gluten-free ketchup, others just said ketchup.

I seem to hear conflicting report on the whole viniger thing.

What's a girl to believe?!

P.S. This is a time sensitive reply, as we are having burgers tonight (with my brand new gluten-free hambuger buns!)

P.P.S. If ketchup/viniger is NOT safe, where do I find gluten-free ketchup?

Which ketchup do you have? A lot of them are gluten-free--

Trader Joe's organic & Whole Foods "O" or "Organics" brand. They both say white viniger on them though.

I ususally buy organic, but in this case, I could do non-oranic as long as it is gluten-free. I will be stoppibng at Trader Joe's in a bit - if you could recommend a good brand available there, that would make my evening!

I'm not familiar with Trader Joe's brands and I have had problems with Whole Foods Brands so I don't buy them anymore. I use Heinz Ketchup--I know that's safe. However, Heinz Organic Ketchup is NOT gluten-free.

I guess I'll be buying Heinz NON-organic ketchup...

P.S. RANDOM TRIVIA QUESTION: What did the "57" originally refer to? (In the "Heinz 57 Varieties"?)

P.P.S. Thank you...

Update: from Heinz website FAQ:

Where can I find gluten-free products?

Heinz Ketchup and Heinz Organic Ketchup do not contain any gluten (the distilled vinegar used is from corn sources). Also, Wine Vinegar, Distilled White Vinegar and Apple Cider Vinegar are gluten-free. Heinz Hot & Spicy Ketchup Kick'rs is gluten-free as well.

I believe that Heinz has changed their organic ketchup formula since this thread was started more than two years ago. It used to contain gluten, but no longer does, if I understand correctly. I don't use ketchup myself, so I haven't kept track.

Heinz has always been my favorite and is what is in most restaurants. I've never had any reactions to it and often use it with safe mayo (Best Foods) and dill pickles (Clausen's) to make a fast salad dressing ; D

You can look up discussions on vinegar but from what I understand, distilled vinegars are ok as gluten cannot pass through the distillation process. I've also read that according to the FDA if it just says vinegar it is supposed to be apple cider vinegar. I still look everything up online first by googling gluten free and the product name. Sometimes if I'm still unsure I'll call or write to the company.

Thanks. I immediately checked the Heinz website, and they say it is gluten-free there, too. I did a search for ketchup this morning (at this forum) and when I saw the organic ketchup contains gluten, I got a little excited... :huh: I don't eat it very often, maybe 1/2 tsp a couple times a week.
