Thanks for posting that.

Does anyone know if the Campbells chicken and rice soup is gluten free? I found an old post from 2005 that someone said it was but I know things change often.

I would suspect that it is NOT gluten free. People here try very hard to be accurate when recommending a gluten free product. But, to be totally safe, be good at reading labels or company confirmations.

Is this from Campbell's in the US or in Canada? The information I have is that the Bean & Bacon made for Canadian consumers was gluten free...of course, that could have easily changed.

The last I knew of bean and bacon from Canada is gluten free but the United States one is not. I plan on picking up some cans on our next trip to Canada for my Husband since its one of his favorite soups.

Well here is the answer to my question about the chicken and rice soup. I read the ingredients and nothing obvious that I saw. That just reminds me to always assume its not ok. At least I am learning. I didn't eat it, but I now have 3 cans of it :rolleyes: ...... Canned food drive here I come.

Here is their response.

Do you have a soup kitchen you could donate it too? Another option might be a local church, quite a few around here donate foods to the local soup kitchens and accept canned and boxed foods.

This clearly must be US Campbells! I've been eating chicken and rice soup, and a few others, and there is DEFINITELY no wheat or any form of it in the chicken and rice soup. Any that they've listed gluten-free here in Canada is made with either potato starch or corn starch. And that has never changed, because I continue to check the labels. And I've yet to get sick...(and you all know i'm SO sensative!!!)

The ones that say gluten-free in Canada are:

Bean with bacon, chicken broth, chicken with rice, chicken with white and wild rice, fiesta tomato, tomato with basil and oregano, vegatable broth with onions, ready to serve healthy request soup: new england clam chowder, chunky ready to serve soup: french canadian pea, pea with garden vegetable, pea with smoked ham

Thought that I would clear up for any Canadians reading this post too...

Campbells have a clear-disclosure policy with respect to gluten sources. If it is in there, they will clearly tell you so in the ingredients list.

But, the ingredients for some products are different in Canada than in the US. As Lisa noted, in Canada the chicken with rice is gluten-free; in the US it is not.

Campbells lists gluten? Here are the ingredients from the back of the condensed chicken with rice (in the USA):

Chicken Stock, cooked rice, cooked chicken meat, water, carrots, modified food starch, chicken fat, contains less than 1% of: celery, cooked mechanically separated chicken, monosodium glutamate, sugar, maltodextrin, onions, vegetable oil, yeast extract, spice extract, cornstarch, beta carotene for color, lactic acid, soy protein isolate, sodium phosphates, chicken flavor, (contains chicken stock, chicken powder, chicken fat), flavoring, soy lecithin

Where is the gluten? I thought it was ok but thought I'd check with Campbells to make sure about the "flavoring" and they said it wasn't gluten free. I thought they did hide gluten or I would have asked which ingredient was not ok.

I don't see any gluten disclosed on the US ingredient list. It is my understanding that they will clearly label gluten ingredients in both the US and Canada.

The Canadian ingredient list for condensed chicken with rice:

Chicken broth, rice, seasoned chicken, carrots, salt, chicken fat, potato starch, water, celery, monosodium glutamate, chicken flavour, mechanically separated chicken meat, dehydrated onions, spice, beta carotene, disodium guanylate, disodium isonate, soy protein isolate, dehydrated garlic and lactic acid.

It is a different formula in many ways.

Is it possible that we have run into another CYA situation where a product contains no gluten ingredients, but the company is now afraid, for legal liability reasons, to say that it is gluten-free for fear of possible contamination.

Canada is now so picky about their labelling rules that its been updated again. So even if there is no gluten in it, they can no long say "natural flavour" or "natural seasoning". It must be specified for all of the major food allergies. Just read about that. And up here, according to the Canadian Celiac Association, if something is said to be gluten free but you get ill/glutened, you can report it with the food inspection agency and they investigate. Their website also lists any products the agency had found to in fact not be gluten-free.

I just had my kid retested for celiac disease and we are waiting for the results.  Her doctor does not hesitate to test since I have a firm diagnosis.  I can also say that my PCP and GI  never hesitate to check for other AI issues either.  They know that you can develop more than one autoimmune disorder.  Better to catch it early before damage!   If you get an endoscopy, be sure to do a gluten challenge 2 to 4 weeks prior or your result will be negative!
