Hi - I understand Dinty Moore Beef Stew is gluten-free. I'm thinking about serving this for dinner. Do you other Celiacs like it?

I buy the small Dinty Moore beef stew, and it is tasty. I even like the Ham and Scalloped potatoes.


~~~~Gluten Free since 9/2004~~~~~~

Friends may come and go but Sillies are Forever!!!!!!!

Make your own! Beef, carrots, onions, potatoes, a touch of canola oil, sage, cumin, salt, pepper, a little sweet rice flour (or corn starch), broth (or boullion and water, and optionally a touch of red wine) and half an hour. (The only trick is to brown the beef in the oil a bit first.) Quite tasty, and you can make a big batch for leftovers. WAY better than "canned" stuff.

angie: the only way to know if it is gluten free or not is to read the label. if you have questions on certain ingredients, feel free to post and ask us. But there are different types, different labels, etc., and products can change ingredients with different batches....so make sure you read the label!!!!

That's one of the things I have the hardest time with. I don't have a list of ingredients that would be listed to replace the "gluten" label. I know that dehamogonized Vegetable Protein is one of them, but other then that there are too many for me to know already. I don't have a book or anything to go by, so I get overwhelmed trying to figure out if there is Gluten in anything I am eating. Right now everything I eat is FILLED with Gluten I'm sure (except the fresh fruits and veggies). I think I have another attack coming on, so I'm going to have to go Gluten Free sooner then I wanted too UG!!

Dinty Moore beef stew is also the only pre-canned Beef Stew that I ever liked. Making your own is always nice, but it doesn't beat being able to heat some up out of the can in 3 minutes and eat.. I actually have a drawer full of Stew and Hormel Chili at work for those days when I am a moron and forget my lunch at home(usually forgoton... sitting on the counter where I set it after taking it out of the fridge in the morning...)

Yeah - I generally try to cook everything from scratch but with 3 kids there are some nights when I need to open a bag or can and dinner is served...hence the reason why I also like El Monterey Chicken or Steak corn taquitos.

Easy.

homemade is best but when you need something quick you can open up a Dinty Moore.

as far as we know it's gluten-free.


Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003
