  1. Tuna Fish

    Here is what I got from Glutenfreeliving.com (Also here is a number for Bumble Bee Tuina if you would like to talk with them directly about this. ) Q: Is vegetable broth gluten free? A: The Food and Drug Administration has a specific definition of vegetable broth when it is used in canned tuna, but does not detail the exact ingredients in other cases. Vegetable broth in tuna has to be made from two or more of the following vegetables: beans, cabbage, celery, garlic, onions, parsley, peas, potatoes, green or red bell peppers, spinach or tomatoes. That means the broth used in canned tuna is gluten free, as is plain canned tuna. The beans used may include soy beans, in which case soy has to be noted on the label as required by the Food Allergen and Consumer Protection Act. While this has nothing to do with the gluten-free status of tuna, it might affect those who have soy allergies in addition to celiac disease. In general, broth is defined as the liquid resulting from cooking vegetables, meat or fish in water. By that definition it would always be gluten free. But canned vegetable broth can contain other ingredients as well. For example, Swanson’s Vegetarian Vegetable broth contains high fructose corn syrup, sugar and potato flour. The Swanson broth, as well as College Inn, Imagine Foods, and Pacific Foods brands are all gluten free. In fact, it is unlikely that you would find a vegetable broth that was not gluten free. Vegetable broth is more likely to be gluten free than chicken or beef broth, which sometimes contain hydrolyzed wheat protein. But you have to read the ingredients label to be sure.
  2. I just had a panel done today. I called (pestered) my doc to order one for me. When i went in today they took about 6 vials of blood. I was curious if they took more than normal, maybe doc asked to have other tests done while I was there. Hmmm... we shall see. I have to wait 4-5 business days (a week) for the results.
