Some Progresso Soups Are Gluten Free!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have missed my canned soups...and Progresso was one of my favorites. I bet most of you know this, but just in case, they actually SAY gluten free on them!! I dunno about all of you, but I feel so much better buying something that says on it, gluten free. I started my gluten free diet back in Nov. 09 and it's been a hard road, but I have been successful so far staying away. I was so happy when I randomly picked up the can of Rich and Hearty New England Clam Chowder and say my favorite words "gluten free". I have been eating Kettle Cuisine frozen soups, very good, but very expensive. I am so happy and had to share!! Apparently, from the looks on their site, there are quite a few soups that are gluten free. This site has been so helpful to me in my quest for gluten free-ness so I have to share my happy moments for those who may be having a hard time like I was...It's not easy, but it gets better every day! Thanks for reading!!

While I have not yet been officially diagnosed (endoscopy/biopsy scheduled for April 9), I have already tried the Creamy Mushroom and Split Pea w/Ham, both of which say gluten free on the label. The Creamy Mushroom is part of the Vegetable Classics line and is so yummy. I've gotten it on special occcasionally at 10/$10 at a local grocery store.

While the can I have doesn't say gluten free, the Chicken & Wild Rice appears to be gluten free.

The split pea and ham is quite delicious. Some of the new V-8 soups are glutenfree, as well. They are wicked expensive, though, so I only buy them when I have a coupon.

Just went to the Progresso website. Left a comment to thank them for labeling gluten-free & asked if some of the other soups might be labeled like that in the future. Let you know if I hear anything back.

Got this response back already. It seems reasonable.

Thank you for contacting us about gluten in Progresso soup.

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. You can also visit our website www.liveglutenfreely.com for gluten free product information and list.

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.

For products not labeled gluten free, we will always declare gluten containing ingredients if they are added to the product. If the ingredient declaration lists wheat, oats, barley, rye, or derivatives of these grains, then the product contains gluten. Examples of derivative ingredients include: malt, barley malt, organic malt, semolina, Durham, triticale, and spelt. We do not include gluten containing ingredients in the ′Natural Flavors′ or ′Spices′ on the product ingredient list. If there are gluten ingredients in our products, those ingredients are always clearly listed.

If there are no gluten- containing ingredients listed in the product ingredient label, but the product does not make a gluten free claim, it is because we cannot fully assure that this product is gluten free. While we have not added gluten-containing ingredients, factors such as sourcing, conditions of manufacture, etc. do not allow us to provide the full level of assurance that a gluten free claim requires.
