I was just at the grocery store staring longingly at the ease of the canned soup aisle when I decided to pick one up -

Progresso's Chicken Corn Chowder and Progresso's Southwestern Style Chicken both have no gluten ingredients listed. While checking other varieties I realized that they are good about listing the main allergens at the bottom of the ingredient listings, so that gave me confidence.

Also I know that their cream of mushroom is gluten-free and I've used it before with no reactions.

Anyone tried or had any reactions to either of these soups?

Thanks

Courtney

Originally from WI, I am still in denial over my newfound casein intolerance. I fear I will not be allowed back into the state if I can no longer eat cheese and drink milk. This could pose some trouble over holidays when I wish to visit my family. It also poses a problem involving the severe rage I feel when I have to throw away somebody's unfinished cheese sticks. That is so wrong.

Here is my logic:

Progresso is a Betty Crocker company. They are a company that will clearly list any gluten containing ingredients, and will not hide them in flavors, starch, etc. Coupled with the food labeling law with requires ALL companies to list wheat (either in the ingredients and/or in the "list" at the end), I would feel comfortable in reading their labels. If there aren't any gluten containing ingredients, then it is safe.

I haven't tried either of those, but I use their Creamy Mushroom and their Thick and Hearty New England Clam Chowder often, and have done well with them.

If you try them, let us know if they are yummy!

Thanks Laura -

That's my logic, too.

Plus after I put my post up I started to do some more Google-Research and it seems that Progresso is quite good, in fact, about listing gluten ingredients.

I guess all my questions will be answered in about an hour or so!!

same here :D

i cried when i first made a casserole w/ the mushroom soup. i grew up on campbells and my mom was a mushroom soup fanatic, so giving that up after dx was hard! now, my only problem is finding the stuff. walmart had it there ONCE, and i shoulda grabbed a couple of cases. they haven't had it in almost 2 months :( i found it at albertsons the other day, but for like, $3 a can. :blink: maybe i will have to search for some coupons or something.

anyway, enjoy :D

As others have stated, they are good about labeling and generally I've had no problems with a couple of exceptions.

I reacted once to Creamy Mushroom. My wife has no gluten intolerance but has a mushroom allergy. She reacted to a can of their soup that didn't list mushrooms as an ingredient.

Any company could have cross contamination. We could have screwed up and had cross-contamination in our house.

Oh Sweetfudge, I cried, too!! The Progresso's Cream of Mushroom was just way too thin and watery to make casserole with!! I know there's ways to thicken it up, but nothing is the same as Campbell's gelatinous mass of can-shaped soup...

Anyways, I had a can of the Chicken and Corn Chowder last nite and it didn't appear to affect me adversely, so that's good news! It was delicious because I did not have to physically prepare it.

Granted, my entire system is all sorts of messed up and so I pretty much felt like crap to begin with. Basically nothing got *worse* after my soup. The real test will be once I get back on track.

Thanks for the input, y'all!

I've had the "Creamy Mushroom", "Chicken and Wild Rice", and "Chicken and Rice" and never felt bad.

By the way, the Creamy Mushroom is great if you fry it up with ground beef and chopped up potato. I really don't like mushrooms, but the sauce makes the beef/potato taste so good.
