I think I got glutened by Spartan Brand chicken breasts.Are these bad? I'm trying to figure out why my face swelled up.

I found that they were gluten free. Here are the ingredients:

Chicken Breast Meat with Rib Meat, Water, Contains 2% or Less of Sea Salt, Modified Food Starch, Sodium Phosphates, Chicken Flavor (Salt, Chicken Broth, Natural Flavors), Flavoring.

I'd guess you are reacting to something besides gluten...like with the bean soup earlier this week. Might want to stick with plain chicken (no additives) for now.

I thought it was the soup too, so I called the company and they said it was gluten free. The chicken I used was Spartan Brand fresh,not the frozen. Where you referring to the frozen chicken? I appreciate your input. I have no idea how to go on an elimination diet to see if it's something in the soup. I've had this gas and this distended stomach for 6 years straight,never gets better no matter what I eat. Gluten swells my face and congests me. That's what happening now.

hmmm...I just googled spartan chicken breast and found those ingredients...if it was fresh I'd assume there are no additives. What else did you eat with the meal? or earlier in the day that you may have had a delayed reaction?

I thought it through, over and over again, nothing is dif. I stick to a limited amount of food because I'm new to this so I'm afraid to eat different foods.I ussually buy Tyson,but I forgot and went for the sale they were having on Spartan chick.

Hmmmm.....have you checked your personal care items for gluten - shampoo, soap, lotion, toothpaste?

It sounds like your are reacting to something else -- I know it can be tough to figure out...hang in there...it does get easier.

I have heard that modified food starch can be derived from wheat, so I try to avoid that! Maybe that is the issue with that chicken?

In the US, if modified food starch is derived from wheat, it must be declared on the packaging by law.n

Here in the U.S. modified food starch is a safe ingredient. If it was made from wheat, it would have to be declared on the label.

OP said that the chicken was fresh, not frozen - so it wouldn't have had the ingredients I listed....therefore the chicken he ate was gluten-free.

If you are new to being gluten free I would re-examine the cooking process in your home. Is there any chance for cross contamination? Were your pots and pans or utensils used on gluten foods in the past? It is so easy to contaminate your food when your kitchen is just recently gluten free. I just thought I would mention that as a possibility. I glutened myself that way in the beginning months even though my ingredients were gluten free. It's worth a thought.

I can't name a single fresh chicken that has gluten in it.

I know I had a reaction a couple/few weeks ago to Tyson's grilled chicken strips that were gluten-free labeled. This was the only food I had eaten, so it was an isolated consumption and had to be the chicken.

Somebody commented that the "chicken stock" would be a very possible door way to how something with gluten could get into a product marked gluten-free.

I'm going to stick with fresh, local, organic chickens.

I've NEVER found a "stock" in fresh or frozen chicken that has gluten. And I've called a lot of manufacturers over the years.

I would also look at any lip products you are using for any other allergen that could be added to it. I found out I had a few food allergies and had to throw out lip products that had nut oils and soy was a big one for me. I was eating so very little and still hurting, it wasn't until I found out soy and certain fruits were a problem for me that I started to feel better. Hang in there.

That is a good point 1956Chill! There are people who are sensitive to chicken itself. I have a sister who cannot eat chicken at all, but she if fine with Turkey too. Thanks for bringing that up.
