I have been ordering bouillon from gluten-free Trading Co. Someone mentioned McCormicks on another post. Does anyone know if it is gluten-free? Someone told me when we first went gluten-free that broth (in the can) and bouillon were things you needed to buy specifically marked gluten-free. I don't know why and I don't know why I never questioned it before?! This was almost 2 years ago and I have been buying it from gluten-free Trading ever since. I was just wondering if national brands have a gluten-free version. I ran out and it will take awhile to order more. Any thoughts?

Some broths have gluten. One of Swanson's does - the organic one? I think they've got the list on their website.

I tend to use Imagine Chicken or Vegetable Broth or Rapunzel's Boullion, and I have checked thatthey are gluten free.

Where would the McCormicks boullon cubes be? I've been looking for that and Herb Ox cubes the last few times at the store and can't find them...

I think wyler's was the one who told me it had gluten in it but since I threw it out, I could be mistaken. Campbell's will send you the list of all their gluten-free products - they own Swanson which I never knew before I went gluten-free. I think Tiffany is correct that their organic broth may be the one with gluten but I'm not certain. I get their canned reg. chicken stock (99% fat free on label) and that for sure is gluten free.

Now I have a question about cream of mushroom soup. Progresso has one that is gluten free but I realize now that's it's not condensed...what I'm looking for is a condensed version of the soup for casseroles. Only for the holidays really but I need to figure this out during my slow time of year which is not the holidays. Does anyone know how I'd reduce a non condensed soup to be thicker?

I add cornstarch to make it thicker.

I am also curious about Wyler's bullion, we have jars of chicken and beef in the fridge. I think they have some ingredients that are suspect, but not obvious.

floridanative-i use the progresso creamy mushroom soup for casseroles. I heat it on the stove, and add some gluten-free flour mix to thicken it. My mom made the green bean casserole with it and everyone loved it....she actually thought it was better and is going to make it that way from now on!!! It works wonderfully for casseroles!

Laura and Idahogirl - thanks for the soup thickening tips. Never cooking except during the holidays, I struggle with the simplest things in the kitchen. I am starting to really enjoy cooking finally 6 weeks in. I'm going to make a green bean casserole this week with some italian green beans that I'm crazy about. No more canned green beans for my casseroles. I'm using Funyuns for the onions. Someone else shared that trick with me. I'm not ready to try and fry my own onions quite yet.

MSG just makes me terribly, terribly thirsty.

Ms. Sillyak, what symptoms do you notice when you've been "soyed?" I have Hashimoto's, and I've never noticed problems with soy, but I guess I should be on the lookout!

Thanks,

It has taken me a few years to put the SOY -- thyoid connection together.

I'm a real diva with make up and hair. My hair is long almost to my waist, and style it like the little icon picture. My hair falls out in gobs when I eat soy. I don't have steatorrhea diarrhea, or plain diarrhea just a stool that isn't firm and formed. And I have trouble sleeping.

I must say I really believe there is also a connection to my celiac disease to me stopping hormone replacement patch I wore for about 10 years. At a very young age I had a hysterectomy. It was at the same time when celiac disease grabbed a hold of me about 5 years ago. I went on a gluten, dairy free diet. One thing I have is will power so I can stick to things. I got better or so I thought. I watched every thing I put in my mouth. But I replaced SOY for milk. I have Silk milk with rice ceral every morning. Drank a few glasses a day. Made Silk milk smoothes with strawberries, blue berries blackberries and bannans, almost everyday. I ate tofo for lunch. Tofo sushi when I ate out. The package foods I ate had SOY tuna, dark chocolate bars had SOY. My vitamins had soy in them like the E and others. I noticed when I didn't eat SOY my hair didn't fall out and my stools were more normal.

I went through major stress -- stuff a normal human couldn't survive and would have flipped out. That's when I began getting sick again. Remember SOY was a big part of my diet. It felt like I had a motor running inside when I would lay down to go to sleep at night. When I would cry get emotional, or (argue with the super loser I was engaged to at the time) it felt like I had a lump in my throat. And when I was up set you could see it grow in front of your eyes. In no time I developed a hot nodule on my thyroid. At that time my steatorrhea diarrhea came back but it was with what I now know as night shade veggies. I get seizures from foods that don't agree with me, and I noticed they got worse. I went and had the radio active iodine treatment and it burned up my thyroid... and almost killed me. I'm on thyorid medication but I am no better then I was before the radio active iodine treatment. I believe it's because of the soy and stress.

A few wonderful friend here brought it to my attention the night shade veggie problem and the soy allergy. I did way with night shade veggies and now the soy. But SOY is in everything and they list it as things like 'veggie broth' or give it a different name that is hidden. I have been calling all the food manufactures in the last few weeking fighting with them for lying to us. SOY is the problem why I feel I developed the thyroid problem. Hope I'm not to long winded here and got off topic. I hope it helps I added a link about bad soy here.

this was a great link.

I haven't read it all but skimmed it.

I'm new to the 'soy' thing and esp. interested in the soy/thyroid connection.

I keep seeing reference to it here on the forum.

Is there any info out there on this connection?

I just got diagnosed recently, am now inspecting everything I had on my shelves. My Wyler's Chicken Bouillon cubes have wheat gluten right in the list of ingredients. The HerbOx are fine. I think Knorr are fine, too.

A lot of these things are not clear and since I never had the nastier symptoms many people have when they are exposed to even a small amount, I could ingest gluten without knowing it. It's really helpful to read these messages that tell me when people react to things that seem innocent enough but could be affecting a lot of us without our knowing it!

I cannot find the McCormicks, Knorrs. I tried the Imagine Chicken Broth and thought it was gross. The Swansons seems to bother my daughter.

So now I make my own chicken stock once every month or so and freeze it flat in 1 or 2 cup portions. It's so much better than the store bought stuff. I'd be happy to share how I do it if anyone is interested...

Some stores place the bouillon cubes either in the soup aisle or with the gravy mixes. Herb Ox also makes a powdered bouillon that sprinkles on. I like to use that to season veggies, rice or gluten free pasta.

I've not been diagnosed with Celiac but IBS. I can't eat anything with MSG or its derivative. I've read alot about gluten free products but when proteins are broken down or (processed) they become gluten like. I have a huge list of products I can't eat which includes all bouillon, broth and soup products. I go into a health food store and am amazed at how 'unhealthy' the food is. I have to eat natural foods only and have learned to spice up my food naturally and not with anything processed. Any comments?

I just got off the phone with swanson. Their chicken and vegetable broth is gluten-free. BUT The ORGANIC Chicken broth is not listed as gluten-free. The beef I done know about, because I don't use much and didn't ask. Hope this helps.

    • Celiac disease is not diagnosed by symptoms alone. Why?  There are over 300 of them and many, if not all, overlap with other autoimmune issues or other illnesses.  Learn more about proper testing: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I am formally diagnosed.  My hubby is not.  His mis-informed doctors told him 16 years  ago to give up gluten.  It worked, but now we do not really know if he has celiac disease or not.  He will be the first to say that I get WAY more support from family, friends and medical.   I am sorry at your doctor gave you the wrong advice.  Now, you must decide if testing is worth pursuing.  I wish you well.  
    • I am considering having my brother - who inherited Daddy's power woodworking tools - plane down my cutting boards and sand the edges enough so I can keep them. The spoons and soup stirring things though will have to be decorative. Breaks my heart. I've had good luck with Merle Norman cosmetics. They have a listing of things that are gluten-free that has helped me. My local store owner was able to get the list and knows what I can use and what I can't.
    • While you could very well be vitamin/mineral deficient, you could also have issues with your thyroid.  Autoimmune thyroid is common with .......autoimmune celiac disease.  Your doctor should order a full thyroid panel, including thyroid antibodies.   Your blood sugar should also be checked (autoimmune diabetes).  I am not saying you have these issues, but these AI issues are common with celiac disease.  In fact, you can develop or have more than one AI issue.   If I feel a very strong need to nap, I know my thyroid is off and my doctor should be notified.  A simple blood test usually verifies that an adjustment to my thyroid replacement is needed.   That said, you are in the healing stages of celiac disease.   Eat healthy and include plenty of fats to keep you satiated.  Try to avoid processed foods.  Make sure that gluten-free diet is varied and full of veggies.  Get plenty of rest.  Just listen to your body.  Soon you will feel much better.  
    • Hi and welcome Can you tell us a little about your diet? What are you eating on a typical day? You may find that some simple switches in food choices can deliver more energy and fewer spikes and crashes. This is something that receives too little attention, particularly from the medical community. It can come as a huge shock to the system and as the implications become apparent its easy to feel overwhelmed. This certainly happened to me and many others here so first do know that you're not alone. You are currently grieving believe it or not and you will be going through the stages of grief.  Second, although it may not feel it now, it WILL get better and you will adjust and adapt as you get used to the diet and start focusing on what you can still do rather than what you can't.  In the meantime, this is a good place to vent and share those feelings as they are perfectly natural and understandable and whilst not always helpful,  they are a part of you and a part of the healing process. Go easy on yourself, this is very early days. You are young, which is good news, it means you will heal sooner and you will adapt quicker and there's lots of good things on the way for you as your body gets a rest from the gluten that's been holding you back.  All the best! Matt
