I ate some campbells' soup on the weekend which had only corn starch in it (from the label)-it was the rice/bean soup and I KNOW that it glutened me! Now, it had MSG, does MSG have any gluten? I'm new to the diet and am having somany issues right now this is the last thing I needed. Can campbell's be trusted like say kraft?

I haven't ever found a Cambell's soup without wheat in it? how did you manage that?

I haven't tried any on the gluten free diet since I can't find any without gluten, but I do know that a lot of people have trouble with MSG.

I don't think it's got gluten in it, but I have heard both ways. I do know it's hard on a lot of people's stomaches.

Campbells "ready to enjoy Fiesta vegetable" Here is a list of ingredients so you can tell me what I've missed....water, carrots, celery, rice, tomato, calcium chloride, citric acid, corn, black beans, tomato paste, sweet peppers, chili peppers, pea beans, potato starch, msg, sugar, salt, dehydrated onions and garlic, canola oil, spice. - it's the spice isn't it. as the lightbulb goes on above my head. I'm such a dork. I did think it was too good to be true.

Sorry to hear you got glutened by Campbell's soup :( . I gave up on them long ago when I read their ingredients in plain chicken and rice :angry: . I can tell you that Progresso clearly list allergy ingredients such as egg, soy, wheat, etc and I have never got sick from their chicken and wild rice soup.

The good news is that Campbells (like Kraft) will, as a matter of policy, clearly disclose gluten sources in their ingredient lists. The bad news is that almost every soup they make has gluten in some form, most commonly noodles. The chicken and rice condensed soup is gluten-free (in Canada, anyway). MSG is not a source of gluten, but many people avoid it for other reasons.

The ingredient list you quoted does not contain any indication of gluten--Campells will not hide gluten in "spices," which almost never contain gluten in any case (not so with "seasoning" which is a big red flag).

Peter,

Will you come to my town and open up a store. We can hook you up. All you need to do is lean how to sweat with ease in August. (We'll show you how) :):):)

I don't know the answer to what made you feel ill. Cross contamination is always a possibiity. Since you are new to this, there may be traces of gluten in your kitchen from before you went gluten-free, or if another member of the household is not gluten-free.

As celiacs, we tend to blame gluten every time something disagrees with us. But that is not always the case. I know that if I ate the soup you described I would have an upset stomach, followed by gas and bloating. But it would have nothing to do with gluten! Chili peppers and onion just do that to me. :o

Think carefully about what else you ate, and about the utensils you used. Did you stir it with a wooden spoon that might be harboring gluten? Are there any scratches in the pot or bowl where gluten could hide?

I know when I was new to the diet I would have reactions to food I knew was gluten-free. It took me about six months before I could really tell when I was glutened. Then I really found out the hard way! Depending on how much damage you have in your intestines, you may be getting sick not because of gluten. But because you have not healed. Just a thought! Plus alot of people have reactions to msg.

Campbell's has just sent me a gluten-free list via mail and it says the only soups that are gluten-free are the following:

Chunky Soup- Chicken Broccoli Cheese 18 oz

Select Soup- Savory Lentil 19 oz

And that's all. I stick with Progresso- I haven't tried these two Campbell's soups- I'd be willing to- but if you have any doubt, try Progresso.

MSG does not contain gluten but with the general population, some people react to it very badly from a non celiac side of things.

Sorry to hear you got sick.

In Canada, the only gluten-free Campbell's soups are the ready to serve Fiesta Veg, condensed Chicken with Rice and condensed Tomato with Basil and Oregano. I think they have a broth or two that are gluten-free.

I'm pretty sure the chicken and rice in the US is NOT gluten-free and lists wheat in the ingredients. The chicken and white & wild rice seems safe, but I don't make a habit of eating it for the chance that I'll grab the wrong one.

Me and my dad also got ill after having campbell's cream of tomato soup and also cream of tomato condensed soup. I think that it's actually just that the soup is CC in the factory - its made on the same lines as glutenated soups. there were no gluten ingrdients on the side of ours either, but it was actually me who realised what was causing this problem, and pointed it out to my mum who does the shopping. so we now just have Heinz soup - which says suitable for coeliacs or gluten free on the side if it is ok, which is much better. Not sure whether you have Heinz in the the USA though.

Hope you start to feel better soon though. Take care x

The can of Campbell's cream of tomato soup in my cupboard lists wheat as an ingredient ... is it different outside the US?

It must be - it definitely isn't listed over here, although that does make me very suspicious now... I know the low fat one over here definitely has wheat in, as my mum's eyesight isn't very good and she brought the wrong one home before, and I immediately spotted it. I always have to keep an eye on her lol. I find it so much easier to live with my parents though, and it also helps my dad to stop getting ill as often from my mum's cooking. nearly 20 years gluten-free now for him - you'd think she would check the labels. :rolleyes:

Oh well :)

I hate to be rude and say this again, but the ONLY soups Campbells say that are gluten-free are the ones above. (In America)... I would steer clear of anything else.

Sometimes it's easy to forget that the (Campbell) manufacturer's formula differs from USA and Canada.
