Gluten-Free Dry Onion Soup Mix

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I found a tasty-looking recipe for pork tenderloin in the slow-cooker that I would like to try out, however it calls for dry onion soup mix. Does anyone know of a gluten-free dry onion soup mix? It is not listed on Campbell's Gluten-Free List (Canada) and I can't seem to find anything with online searches. Or does anyone know how I can make a home-made alternative (keeping in mind that I am not a whiz in the kithcen!)?

Thank you :)

I found this: http://www.penny.ca/Lipton.htm that says the onion soup is gluten-free, but it was last updated January 2003.

However, my husband bought me a packet and it lists Yeast Extract in the ingredients. I always thought that was unsafe and this list: http://www.gicare.com/diets/Gluten-Free.aspx says yeast extract contains gluten (as it contains Barley).

Thanks :)

Isn't Lipton dry onion soup gluten-free? It's past 4pm Eastern so I can't call. I also can't find the ingredients online.

Here's a recipe for dry onion soup mix I found on Recipezaar.

Hum, I lost a post

Lipton is an Unilevel Company and their policy is to clearly list all forms of gluten. It is the only one of their dry soups and mixes that is gluten free.

It should be gluten free Jillian, as it lists no gluten. I use it all the time in my beef stew.

In this particular case, Lisa answered it in post #4. Unilever is totally reliable when it comes to listing gluten ingredients. If it doesn't say (barley) after Yeast Extract, it's not made from barley. Other companies may use the barley, you'd have to go on a product by product basis :)

You might want to contact Lipton (Unilevel) and request information regarding the source of the Yeast Extract. Yeast is not an ingredient that I am often concerned about. :)

Thanks for posting this Purple. Although Lipton onion mix is gluten free it does contain soy (which I can't have) and other unnecessary ingredients. I would rather make from scratch whenever possible. :)

I just bought a box of lipton onion soup mix and the ingredients list autolyzed yeast extract (barley). So mine would not be gluten free. Please remember to always check labels when you purchase any product as formulas change and may be different depending on where it is manufactured. Even though I live in the US my product was made in Canada, It was bought in a major supermarket chain (Stop & Shop) in Mass.

I also bought a box of that, too...either from Food Lion or Giant. I gave it to my DIL. I do have one box of the old left after which I'm going to make my own from the recipe on food.com.

I have a recipe for crockpot swiss steak that uses an envelope of Lipton's onion soup mix, but next time I'm going to substitute some dried onion and some beef boullion powder, and I'll bet it comes out pretty much the same. You could try that. I'm guessing a tablespoon or two of the onions, and maybe enough boullion powder for 2 cups' worth of liquid (or 2 boullion cubes dissolved in some liquid).

Regarding autolyzed yeast extrace (barley) listing on the ingredients.....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yeast

Yeast extract

Main article: Yeast extract

Marmite and Vegemite have a distinctive dark colour

Marmite and Vegemite, products made from yeast extract

Yeast extract is the common name for various forms of processed yeast products that are used as food additives or flavours. They are often used in the same way that monosodium glutamate (MSG) is used, and like MSG, often contain free glutamic acid. The general method for making yeast extract for food products such as Vegemite and Marmite on a commercial scale is to add salt to a suspension of yeast making the solution hypertonic, which leads to the cells shrivelling up.compounds, a process of self-destruction. The dying yeast cells are then heated to complete their breakdown This triggers autolysis, where the yeast's digestive enzymes break their own proteins down into simpler , after which the husks (yeast with thick cell walls which would give poor texture) are separated. Yeast autolysates are used in Vegemite and Promite (Australia); Marmite, Bovril and Oxo (the United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland and South Africa); and Cenovis (Switzerland)

(the bold is mine)...thus, my non-scientific brain tells me that the offending (barley) proteins are no longer a danger to my body due to the fact that the autolysis yeast is rendered gluten free, through this process.

:D:blink:

It tried unsuccessfully to contact Unilevel and will try again, to verify it's current status. Or others could try:

Officially just in from Unilever via a wonderful company representative!

There has be NO formulation change regarding Lipton Onion Dry Soup Mix. Through Unilever policy of full disclosure, they have recently decided to include to source of the autolyzed yeast extract, as barley.

The trace barley in the finished product is 0.09 part per million in the Onion Soup, and 0.04 parts per million in the Vegetable Soup. Both are far below the standard (20ppm) of what is considered a safe level for a person with Celiac to consume.

Enjoy! :D

Thank you Lisa. This made my day. :) I always keep an envelope or two on hand for convenience. It's nice to know nothing has changed except their label.

Last time I looked at Lipton onion soup it listed barley as an ingredient. I think the recipe has recently changed because the older ones in my pantry do not list barley.

    • I just want you to remind you that I just had a repeat endoscopy last week after my diagnosis some five years ago.   Even though my antibodies are still elevated, my intestinal tract has healed.  But why have I been feeling sick?  I have chronic gastritis.  Who would have guessed?   I do not drink (rarely), take any meds other than my thyroid replacement, and do not have H. Pylori.  That leave autoimmune as the most likely culprit.  I also have some other minor issues that I think is related to Hashimoto’s.  So, I am in an autoimmune flare-up, but celiac disease is not the cause of current my woes. My endoscopy results have validated that I have been doing a good job about avoiding gluten.  I can relax a bit now!   I think because the treatment for celiac disease is a burden placed on us, it can become overwhelming.  Sure, we all eventually master the diet and most of us go on to lead plain old normal lives, but if something is off, celiac disease is the first thing that many of us blame.  Actually, we blame ourselves, to be honest.  We have to remember that we are often dealing with other health issues too.   As far as hair, I buy gluten free shampoo.  It is from Costco and it says it right on the label.  Nice and inexpensive.   Do I really need it to be gluten free?  No.  I think the last time I swallowed shampoo, my mother was most likely bathing me and I did not heed her warning to keep my mouth shut (baby shampoo may not sting your eyes but it tastes awful!).   Like you, sometimes I think it helps to have one less thing to think about and that can be priceless.           
    • https://www.twinings.co.uk/hot-chocolate-coffee-other-drinks/hot-chocolate-and-malt-drinks/twinings-swiss-chocolate-drink Have discovered this drink - it's great, labelled gluten free and is also fortified.   I can't drink too much milk as I get bloated, but find it tastes really nice even made mostly with hot water and just a small amount of milk.  Thank you Twinings.
    • Ennis_TX, thank you for your response! I will take heed of all your nutritional pieces of advice, one by one. And yes, I am aware that a gluten marathon is on the horizon soon.   Before doing the test, however, I shall try to fortify my diet with the nutrients you mentioned, and report back in a week or two.   I think adding some iron supplement is wise too.    
    • Ms. Alemayoh recalls a childhood of trips to Ethiopia to visit family, returning to Australia with suitcases packed with spices and traditional Ethiopian teff flour, brought in part to cook for a sister who has celiac disease.

    • Yeah I thought that rant might make me look like a queer after reading it a bit later.....I am straight btw I just have very long and fine hair...that yeah it blows everywhere and gets in my mouth sometimes, and always pushing it with my hands or having to tie it up.  I blew up because it sometimes feels like I am talking to a bunch jocks with buzz cuts when it comes to hair....like people that do not understand no matter what you do....it is going to end up in your mouth and you have to keep messing it and working with it when the stuff runs like 4-6" past your shoulders.
      >.< thing is some times with the way your hair is.....you do not rinse it all out...some conditioners I have used in the past used to b ones you would not rinse all the way out....it sort of does become a issue that is very easily avoided. There are many more options for gluten free shampoos now days and many companies have taken the allergy/gluten concern to heart and removed them/used alternatives to boost sales to a larger demographic. Point is while yes I did blow up about it...and honestly in many cases the "hydrolyzed wheat protein" thing is a hit and miss on if it really contained gluten, but better safe then sorry is my bet and with tons of options....why chance it?
