Walmarts Great Value Salsa

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Ok so my husband picked me up some mild chunky great value salsa, he read all the ingredients and there is nothing gluten listed.. then at the very bottom of the bottle it says, may contain wheat...what??! where? are they doing that for legal purposes or does it truly have gluten in it? I want a snack so bad right now and all I have it corn chips and the salsa but now I'm afraid of the salsa?? are any of you eating it and not having reactions?

If it says "may contain," that is a warning that there is a possibly of cross-contamination despite the manufacturer's efforts to avoid it.

If it says "contains," then that means that the allergen is definitely present as an intentional ingredient.

well to be safe then I better just start looking for new brands that are labeled better. 3/4 of my pantry is great value and I can't touch any of it.. learning lesson for sure.

I would eat it (although I much prefer some other salsas).

We like Herdez salsa. I get it all over including Walmart & Target. I live in Kansas. & it's made in Calif so I think it's pretty wide spread. No wierd hydrolized autolyzed stuff in it.

Ingredients: tomato, onion, peppers, salt, cilantro.

I agree with Richard...I'd probably eat it unless it specifically states it contains any gluten ingredients. I really don't buy the Great Value brands of of products though. I think Wal-Mart has come out with a lot of products that say that...a CYA statement.

I would eat it. It sounds like a legal statement if it's on the tomatoes too. If you have a lot of Great Value products it would be expensive to replace. I'd eat foods without any wheat ingredients and gradually replace them with a better labeled brand.

Remember that this is a lifelong diet shift. Eating the Great Value foods you have on hand and possibly getting a trace of wheat is not going to keep you from starting to heal. Besides, with four kids in the house I bet it doesn't take you too long to use everything up. :P

Very true Skylark! I'm so glad to hear some of you eat them and don't have a reaction. I just wish their label could be more definitive but I think I will eat up what we have and not just try to replace everything but it's true, I have too much of it in the house and it would be really expensive. Last night we made the french fries for the kids and made it a chili cheese fry kind of night, it was fun and it got rid of a couple bags :)
