gluten-free Canned Soup?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am newly diagnosed and feel like I will never figure this all out. I had my favorite soup for dinner last night. It never even occured to me the soup would have gluten until I got sick. I need to find a gluten-free canned soup as I cannot afford to get all my soup fresh at health food stores. Do they make gluten-free canned soup?

let me know!! :)

I'm new to this also (i was diagnosed last week!) so I'm also trying to figure this out. I love soup and for canned soup I used to eat progresso but now I'm not sure if the ones I like are okay. I did hear that a lot of their soups are gluten free so I called the company to ask which ones. They didn't give me a very straightforward answer though. The woman said she knew it was there policy to label gluten ingredients on the label (don't most companies do that though? :huh: ) so she said if there isn't malt, barley, or wheat listed then it's okay, but I'm supposed to check the ingredients myself. I might call back though and ask if she knows specific types that are safe so I'll let you know if I find out.

Progresso Chicken and Wild Rice (in the convenient microwave cup) is safe! I also eat Imagine and Pacific soups (they come in a carton). I hear Campbells cheesey broccoli is safe, but haven't tried one. I also get great soups from Trader Joes too.

Progresso Cream of Mushroom is gluten free and very good "for canned soup".

I usually make my one and it is very easy.

Prgresso also has Chicken Cheese Enchilada and Corn Chicken Chowder that are gluten free BUT most of their soups have MSG so if that bothers you, you'd want to avoid that line. Health Valley has several gluten free soups (crm of mush, crm of celery, crm of chicken) but many on here can't tolerate them and think there may be a cc issue. I love Amy's gluten free soups but since they are organic, they are quite pricey.

I think the Progresso one is actually "Creamy Mushroom" if I remember right? Or are they two separate ones, Lisa?

One of Progresso's Clam Chowders is safe also. I think the "traditional" one is NOT safe...but the "thick and hearty" (or something like that, I don't have one in my pantry) is safe. But, please read labels!

I asked Progresso via Email about their soups (they are Betty Crocker).

Here's the response I got. Pretty good, means we should be able to trust their labeling!

Thank you for contacting Progresso regarding gluten in our Progresso soup.

It is our goal to help our consumers determine whether or not they can include our products in their diet. To accurately accomplish this, we believe it is best to refer to the specific ingredients listed on each product package.

However, we do understand that ingredients can be confusing, so we want to assure you if the ingredient label does not list wheat, barley, rye, oats or gluten containing ingredients sourced from these grains, then the product would be gluten-free. Sources of gluten are listed on the label even if the source of gluten is part of another ingredient (such as flavoring or spice). Because ingredients may vary from one package to another due to product reformulation, you should use the product’s ingredient label to provide you with current and accurate information. It is best to refer to the ingredient label on the package. We understand that ingredients can be confusing, so we want to assure you that the product would be gluten free if the ingredient label does not list:

    • Wheat
    • Oats
    • Barley
    • Rye
      Derivatives of these grains that contain gluten. Examples:
      “malt” or “organic malt” are made from barley semolina, durham, tritcale, and spelt are forms of wheat

We do not hide gluten under other ingredients; for example it would not be hidden under Natural Flavors, or Spices.

Additional information regarding gluten may be obtained by contacting your health care professional or:

Not to burst your bubble, but I can't tolerate Progresso and there was a recent post and some other people said the same thing. I don't know if it is all the chemicals, but I don't do well with it.

Also, someone else recently posted that Imagine is now manufactured in a facility that contains wheat.

It is a personal choice whether you want to avoid eating foods that may have cc issues from being manufactured around wheat. Personally, I have gotten sick too many times from stuff like that so I don't eat any of it. Amy's stuff always gets me sick from cc as well.

So, I loved canned soup, however I haven't found any that is produced in a gluten-free facility and doesn't have MSG or a ton of chemicals, except Pacific, which is just broth, although good broth.

If you are new to the diet then your system needs time to heal. As convenient as it would be, I wouldn't recommend eating a lot of canned soup, especially in the beginning. I learned the hard way and I'm just trying to help out.

Some of the Baxter's soups are labeled gluten-free, including the lobster bisque.

Currently, ALL Campells soups in the US contain gluten, or, at least they don't have them on the gluten free list. Heck, Campells still isn't even using the 2006 labeling laws. Non that I have seen anyhow...

Healthy Choice (green label) the chicken and rice contains no wheat and it comes in one of those nifty microwave containers so it is portable for work.

I have been using the new Wegmans Culinary Stock broths and then just throwing in tinkaynda pasta or rice and veggies. I make enough for work and home and enjoy.

I believe the Lipton in a cup cream of chicken is also safe, may have changed, been awhile since I used that.

Good Luck!

I buy Walmarts chicken and rice soup and it is not that expensive and it is very good to have around if you were to get a cold or something. :)

If you don't mind boxed soups I like Imagine Organic Soups--some have dairy, some have soy, and a few are gfdfsf. Trader Joe's has some similar boxed soups.

Shelton's chicken and wild rice soup has no gluten. Some of the Amy's Organics soups are gluten free. I can't remember offhand which ones.

So that means that Campell's Spaghetti and Meatballs has gluten? I didn't see it on the label.

I make my own soups with Imagine broth. Throw in frozen veggies, meat and seasoning. So easy. You can also throw in par-boiled rice or rice pasta. Freeze for later what you dont eat now. :)

They make a spaghetti and meatball soup? What is the spaghetti made of? And what would they put in the meatballs as a binder/stretcher, like crumbs or oats?

I am doing that right now in my crockpot. Got the broth, chicken and veggies nicely done. Just have to add some pasta.

    • In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free.  I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!!  Awesome!!!  
    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • If Small was going to get rid of anything in a takeaway meal, it would be the bread with all its dreaded gluten. However, many scientists and nutritionists argue gluten is not a problem for people who do not have celiac disease or who are not "gluten-sensitive". Massey University senior lecturer in food ...
