Bush's Baked Beans, Their Reply To My Query

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

After eating Bush's Grillin' Beans, Steakhouse style, I thought to check the can. It did NOT say gluten free, as their products usually do. I hoped for the best, checked the website, and sent an email. Below is their response.

I reacted to something this weekend, but it may have been my fibro reacting to the Arctic storm that roared through our area. Barometric pressure swings can wreak havoc for me regardless of what I do or don't eat.

Hope this letter is helpful. :D

"Thank you for contacting us regarding our Baked Beans.

As of this date, all of our BUSH'S BEST products are gluten-free.

We are pleased to inform you that we have reformulated our Chili Beans products and our Chili Magic Chili Starter products to no longer contain wheat flour; therefore, changing the ingredient statement on these products to now state Modified Corn Starch. Due to store inventory rotation and other elements beyond our control, we still urge you to check the labels before consuming these products if you have gluten restrictions.

We do use corn starch in some of our products, but it does not contain gliadin gluten from wheat, barley, oats or rye grains which may cause adverse responses in persons suffering from Celiac Sprue. In addition, any vinegar used in our products is corn-based and distilled.

I hope this information is helpful. Please keep in mind that we are constantly expanding our product line and may add new products that contain potential allergens. Additional ingredient information can be found in the ingredients listing on the label or by checking the "Product Q&A" section of our web site. If you are still unsure, please email us via our web site: www.bushbeans.com."
