Celiac.com 12/11/2018 - In most people without celiac disease or other gluten sensitivities, the gut does a pretty good job of processing gluten, and helps to prevent local inflammatory and immune responses. However, in about one percent of the population, gluten proteins from wheat and related cereals trigger an HLA DQ2/8‐restricted TH1 immune and antibody response, which triggers celiac disease.

Hi...I too suffer with this..I was told to take a combination of Zyrtec and Zantac.. Within 2 days I was not itching anywhere.. ..its worth a try if you are not allergic or intolerant to these antihistamine blockers...good luck!
Yes, I saw that. However Shantel did revive the thread and her observations stated that was still the case with Campbells, which I have experienced differently.
I agree, ALWAYS read the label every time you buy something. Even if it's the same old familiar brand. Something I've learned from being in an allergy family for a long time. Manufacturers can and do change ingredients without notice, even if there is no obvious change to the labelling/packaging.
This is a really old thread, check the dates.
Back when I went gluten free, I learned to avoid Campbell everything. They used to not have any safe products and the red label was a red flag to stay away. Guess it has changed in past 5 years or so.
But the rule still applies, ALWAYS check labels, call companies to be sure, and if there is doubt throw it out and do not risk your health.
