The Wal-Mart Great Values brand Beef Broth used to be marked gluten free and is no longer. It now lists wheat as an ingredient. :(

I use Rachael Ray's chicken or Beef Stock. Our Walmart carries it, and I think it's actually less expensive than Walmart's Broth. If you'll look at the ingredients, the stock is better (IMO) than the broth, in that the stock has chicken or beef stock (vs, just flavor), vegatable stock (carrot, celery, onion) the broth has none, and herbs (bay leaf, thyme, marjoram, carrot powder), the broth has none. As far as I can see, the Walmart box of broth is no different than a canned broth. Big deal, they put a can of regular broth in a box, and charge more for it.

Rachel Ray's states it is made in a facility that may also process dairy, eggs, tree nuts, wheat, soybeans, fish and shell fish. Your typical CYS statement. It does state however, NO MSG, GLUTEN FREE. They're capitals, not mine.

I like Rachel Ray's dog food also. It does not contain wheat, has a lot of acceptable ingredients, is carried by Walmart (so I don't have to go way out of my way to a Petsmart and pay high prices), and is affordable.

It does contain oatmeal, no big deal for me. First off, my dogs don't have Celiac Disease. Secondly. IMO oatmeal as a minor ingredient is not a consideration. True, oatmeal is always considered to be contaminated with wheat. I accept that and don't dispute it. The key word is "contaminated". That means it may or probably contains a small amount of wheat. If one consumes an entire bowl of oatmeal (say for breakfast) on a regular basis, that may be cause for concern. But starting with an already small contribution to a food product, say a Taco Bell crispy taco for instance, that contains a small amount of oatmeal as a thickening agent. And lets say you are with a group of people on a trip and you stop at Taco Bell and have a couple of crispy tacos. Not eating them regularly mind you, let's say this is a twice a year thing. Also, you are just an average Celiac (if there is such a thing, but I think I am one), not a supersensitive one. And it goes without saying that you don't get obviously sick, ie. have a bad reaction. Then I'd say there's no reason for undue panic or worry.

Sorry for the digression. but I said all that to clarify my take on oatmeal as a minor ingredient in dog food, vis a vis getting glutened by your pets consuming a small amount.

best regards, lm

HI! I am not diagnosed (except by myself at this point), but am 7 days gluten-free. Tonight at church I ate a veggie stew and my tummy started rumbling about 1/2 hour later. As, this is just a trial-and-error thing, I wanted to check it out and it had 2 cans of Great Value Beef Broth in it. Could that have affected me if I have celiac/gluten intolerance? We have a lady at church that is diagnosed celiac, so I followed her advice on the tonight's meal. When I asked her if it bothered her, she was okay. Since I'm just doing this on my own, was just curious.

Thanks
