Progresso Creamy Mushroom Soup

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Noticed recently that Progresso is actually labeling their soups Gluten Free. Creamy Mushroom is one of them. However, today I received an email from Ceceliasmarketplace saying that this soup is NOT gluten free. Does anyone know if it truly is? Sure is good for those green been casseroles.

I've used 3 cans of it now and have not had any reactions.

I've actually cooked liver in it and made a shephards pie too. I've had to add a bit of Bob's flour to thicken it as liquids from any other source thin it out.

I truly have not had any reactions from the sales in Michigan.

Not all Progresso soups are gluten free but the ones I have tried have been great! I just look for the gluten-free ones and try to buy as many as I can just to support their effort. Haven't seen the creamy mushroom in my area yet (Grass Valley, CA) but I'm on the lookout for it. I used the corn chowder one in the green bean casserole and it was pretty good :)

They have now removed the gluten free labeling, and are no longer saying that their regular soups, including cream of mushroom soup, are gluten free. I just got an update for my supermarket guide(Cecilia's) and they have said to remove most of progresso's soups that have the new labels.

This is incorrect. I just received an email from Progresso. Here is their reply. In other words, if the can says "Gluten Free" it is. The lists on the internet are not always up to date.

[i]General Mills offers several products that are labeled gluten-free. Please check the package label for the gluten-free statement on the front/side/back of the package. Only products that can be verified to be gluten free will be declared as gluten free on the label. It is important to check the product label each time you purchase a product because it has the most accurate information about the product in the package.

Because we constantly strive to improve our products′ quality and nutritional value, the most up-to-date product information is on the package the product is purchased in. For that reason, we do not distribute product information lists as they could quickly become outdated

I'm not sure about Creamy Mushroom but, Progresso Rich and Hearty Chicken Corn Chowder, Progresso Vegetable Classics Garden Vegetable, Progresso Classics Lentil, and Progresso Vegetable Classics French Onion Soup they are ALL gluten-free. It states this on the back of the can under the words Dist. By Progresso Foods Division, General Mills Cereals. I especially like the Vegetable Classics Garden Vegetable. I add chicken, ham, or beef, after I cook them separately and add them to the soup after it has been microwaved. This is one of the meals I make when I don't feel like cooking for the rest of the family. I usually send them out to a restaurant. It doesn't take much effort. Sometimes I just have soup and sandwich. It's very simple and easy. I hope you find these suggestions helpful. Remember to always read the label. Make sure the can of Progresso you buy does in deed say gluten-free.

General Mills has released a website that lists specific Gluten Free products. It clearly states that Gluten Free will be on the label.

This list was updated Recently, and several of Progresso's soups have been removed. Including the Creamy Mushroom.

I know this is confusing, however, the Mushroom Soup IS Gluten Free, As stated on the back of the can. The email I received from Progresso (Mentioned in the above topics), states that the listings on websites are not always accurate. YOU MUST READ THE BACK OF THE CAN. If it states GLUTEN FREE, it is.

From Progresso - email this week:

Has anyone considered the possibility that there are going to be both gluten free and gluten filled versions of this soup floating around? The way this is reading to me is that they're redoing the recipe to have gluten in it, or it's been moved to another factory that doesn't have dedicated lines. The cans that are out there have gluten-free on the back; therefore, they're gluten free. (Not actually that easy, as we all know, but I'm fairly braindead today so I'm using simplified terms today.)

But if the recipe has been pulled from the website recently (which assumes that it was on the website to begin with), then it's possible that something has changed and newer batches won't be gluten free.

I just had this happen with one of my favorite chocolate bars being dairy free--for years, there were three flavors I could eat. Then, about a month and a half ago, the ingredients changed on one of them because they'd shifted production lines.

Looking at the ingredients of creamy mushroom, see this website http://www.progressosoup.com/soup.aspx?soup=vegetable-classics, i see it has modified food starch as an ingredient see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modified_starch . Look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starch and you will see wheat listed. I stay away from anything that lists modified food starch as an ingredient. My motto is: IF I CAN'T MAKE IT; I DON'T EAT IT!

In the US if the modified food starch is from wheat it it is required by the FDA to state that it is.
