So today in Wegmans I was in the gluten free aisle when my husband spotted soups....which I had never seen. Heinz had made 3 soups and they were made gluten free and labeled it.

There was Cream of Tomato

Potato and Leek

and Beans and Tomato soup.

It was a good find. We didn't try any but they are very different looking from the real "tomato soup." These are all metallic cans. Look old fashioned.....if that helps

I was excited!!!!

Are they the British imports? I've found them at World Market but they are pricey. You'll have to give us some feedback on how they taste.

I love their tomato soup. It's not generally in the regular soup isle, since it is a British import. I usually find it amongst the International foods. It tastes just like Campbell's. It's perfect for those days you want tomato soup and grilled cheese (I use the rye bread from the Grainless Baker). Mmmmmmm!

I found this in the Nature's Marketplace where all the organic and specialty diet food is.

They carry two of them here in the gluten free mall associated with this site. There might be product reviews there too.

If it is a British import, would it meet north american gluten free standards. Or have the Brits stopped using wheat starch? They used to claim that wheat starch was gluten free. <_< Does anyone know if that has changed?

Heinz is based here in Pittsburgh, but I think they do have a UK branch. Time to check out their website!

Looks like the cream of tomato soup is a UK product, but it does NOT contain wheat starch, they use corn flour (what we call corn starch in the US) instead!

Ooh, I'm going to look for it!

EDIT

Just found this in a celiac alert blog---FYI

Imagine Organic Soups

tomato-soup-146x300.jpgImagine makes the most amazing Creamy Tomato Soup! The soup is creamy and rich, and it's gluten free. It even says so right on the back of the box and on the website. All of Imagine soups are organic and gluten free, with the exception of the Creamy Chicken Soup and the Imagine Bistro Bisques. I enjoy the creamy tomato soup with a gluten-free grilled Brie sandwich. It's just like my old glutenous grilled cheese and tomato soup combo, but it tastes more gourmet, and of course, it's gluten free. I also really like the Creamy Sweet Corn Soup! Being from the Midwest, I know good corn, and this is it. It's great served with gluten-free crackers such as Blue Diamond Nut Thins. this is my personal comments. (I KNOW some folks have trouble with the cracker b/c of non decicated lines ...if i remember correctly.

I was in town on Wed. and couldn't find any Heinz soups :angry: Guess we don't have them around.

I also checked out the Imagine soups and couldn't find the words gluten free on them. I remember buying them a few years ago with gluten free written on them, but it's not there anymore.

The ingredients look fine though, so I bought a tomato to try it. Haven't tried it yet, maybe tomorrow.

    • Apologies for my over-reaction.  As the shampoo exposure was only for a couple week or so, I doubt any lab tests would have indicated exposure. Unfortunately, since I didn't have the antibodies, I can only rely on my symptoms to tell me if I've been exposed. I'm fortunate enough that eliminating gluten (and dairy) from my diet completely fixed my problems. I have had no lingering systems, and now that I have been gluten free for a while, when I do get gluten I have a very clear reaction (and a distinct reaction to dairy) that follows a fairly predictable timeline. This has accidentally been tested a couple of times. For example, early on before I was better at reading labels I grabbed some cookies at the grocery store that I thought were gluten free (the company produces both a normal and gluten-free version, and this was before I learned to avoid shared facilities). I had grabbed the wrong bag but I didn't figure it out until about a week of feeling crappy had passed and I went searching for a culprit. Things like this have happened a couple of times, where I accidentally did a blinded experiment on myself. The symptoms are consistent, and resolve once I remove the offending item. So when I recognized my symptoms as the result of gluten, I went looking for a culprit and I found the shampoo and conditioner. I removed them and then I got better.  My problems are largely systemic. I wouldn't be surprised if I don't actually have celiac but some other immune mediated reaction that hasn't been defined, but calling it celiac is the best way to get people to take my needs seriously (which I'm sure you understand). Unfortunately, my problems don't seem to fit into any particular diagnostic bucket, so I've learned not to rely on the official medical terms and just go with what works. I'm lucky to have had doctors who think the same way, else they might have told me that I didn't need to go gluten free once I failed to show clear-cut celiac. Maybe I'm pre-celiac, maybe it's the much maligned NCGS, or it's all related to leaky gut (I am eagerly awaiting the FDA approval of larazotide so that I can get a doctor to give me some, I think it might do me a lot of good). All I know is that when I went gluten and dairy free it literally changed my life.  In general it seems that gluten exposure causes a generalized inflammatory response. I get some inflammation in my gut that manifests as reflux, acid indigestion (what I call "fake hunger"), and a little bit of urgency and unpredictability with regards to bathroom needs, but if that were the only problem, I think I could live with it. I also get headaches, brain fog, my depression/anxiety gets triggered to a scary degree, arthritis, muscle aches, and then, the clincher, muscles spasms in my upper back and neck that have been known to lay me out for a couple of days while I wait for the muscle relaxants to help me heal. The muscle spasms, arthritis and brain fog are the most recognizable and are usually what cue me in that I got glutened, especially the spasms.  Again, sorry for being oversensitive. I should have known better, since this is such a supportive community.  
    • I appreciate your point. However, constancy of my celiac symptoms indicates that I have had the disease for at least three years - while I have never experienced any food allergies in that time. Although I will keep an eye on any emerging allergies, I believe my current fatigue is due to nutritional deficiency, because the only exogenous change in my life style has been the transition to gluten free diet.   Yes, I certainly need to keep a food diary. Thanks again for the advice.
    • In many cases no.....I consume heavy magnesium foods like pumpkin seeds, cocoa nibs etc....and still need 2-3x the dose of magnesium recommendations. Going on more of what poster boy said. You dose magnesium to tolerance with citrate like Natural Vitality Calm you start off small partial doses and slow ramp up....it can hit you hard causing gas and D if you go to quick into it. You dose citrate to tolerance meaning you slowly up your dose til you get loose stools...then back down a bit. You should have vivid dreams with a good dosing....also if it becomes to harsh or you can not handle citrate there is Doctors Best Glycinate...it does not have the gut effects at all...but the dreams and how much it makes you relax is more more felt.   ...with this disease you can have a food intolerance or allergy crop up out of the blue....like no where. You have a autoimmune disease....celiac it effects your immune system and can make it really wonky. Like it seems to always be on guard like a sleep deprived sentry on stim packs...jumps at everything and shoots it. If you get sick, eat something odd or harsh you system might red flag it as a issue for awhile and go bonkers....keep a food diary and try a food rotation in the mean time...OH as a example to this, I was fine with chia seeds last week...I got a cold over the weekend....same bag, same brand same way....withing 30mins I now puke if I eat them...new intolerance.....I also am finding jalapenos/paprika making it sleepy tired....so I am removing them both for a few months from my diet and changing to other sources for fats/fiber and vitamin A/C til I get over that issue.....these things just happen. https://www.mindbodygreen.com/articles/are-food-sensitivities-for-life
    • Hi Isabel, Your body needs nutrients to grow.  Nutrients not absorbed well when we have celiac disease damage in our guts.   But, if you do a good job of avoiding gluten, the gut damage should heal and you will be able to absorb nutrients again. The thing to remember is celiac disease is an immune system reaction.  Immune reactions are very sensitive and just a tiny amount of gluten can get them going.   And they can last for months.  So it;s very important to avoid all gluten all the time, to keep the immune reaction down.  Keeping the immune reaction down keeps the damage down, and the healing can keep up. You may start to grow more if you can absorb nutrients better.  Some extra vitamin pills might be a good idea.  Your doctor should know.  
    • Thank you Gail for your response. Of course one should be mindful of the possibility of food allergies but I don't think that's the case with my current situations. Save for gluten containing product, everything I eat now I used to eat before with no reaction whatsoever. I think my issue is more likely to be deficiency in minerals and such.
