Progresso Soups

11 posts in this topic

Just in case some of you are fond of Progresso Soups, recent changes have made some unsafe for celiacs.

When they took out the MSG some formulas/recipes changed and some that WERE on the OK list are no longer safe (such as my former favorite: Chicken with Wild Rice).

Here is a link to the updated General Mills site that lists gluten free items:

You can print out a PDF "pocket list" for shopping.

I had seen this list not too long ago, and I was totally excited by the creamy mushroom! I'm planning on trying it to see if I can use it in casseroles like I used to make with campbell's. Also the chicken cheese enchilada soup is SO good!! I want to try baking chicken with that poured on top. My 10yo son LOVES the lentil, and the clam chower also. I'm so glad that progresso has some things available!!

Chicken with Wild Rice is also my favorite and must-have to keep on hand at all times. I hadn't seen this list but I just bought several cans this week. All of them had the new "No MSG" white banner across the top of the label - and nothing is in the list of ingredients that would make be think it contained gluten. The label also clearly states "Contains SOY" in their allergen list.

I bought the regular chicken and rice soup and it, too, had the new label but didn't list anything suspect.

I really hope these were simply omitted from the list. There aren't too many commercial canned soups we can eat.

I know, I still always scanned the label, even if I thought it was on the OK list. Even though I didn't see anything bad, they have removed Chicken with Wild Rice from their new gluten free list. I stopped buying it. If they took it off the list I felt there must be a reason and I no longer trust it. (PS love your cat!)

I called today and confirmed that the reason Chicken and Wild Rice was removed is because it may have been processed in a facility where it was subject to gluten contamination. Frustrating--and unfortunately lends credence to my paranoia about labeling--but at least there is some consistency (the list, their web site, the absence of explicit "gluten free" label).

I am not so sure Progresso soups labeled gluten free. I had cream of mushroom soup yesterday, that was labeled gluten free and I am still sick today. I won't trust it again.

If you are new to the diet, everything and anything could bother you. Your intestines are a mess and they are trying to heal. It's also possible that something else in the soup or that you ate bothered you.

If a food makes you feel bad, don't eat it. That does not mean it isn't gluten free.

Progresso is a part of General Mills.

"General Mills offers several products that are labeled gluten-free. Please check the package label for the gluten-free statement on the front/side/back of the package. Only products that can be verified to be gluten free will be declared as gluten free on the label. It is important to check the product label each time you purchase a product because it has the most accurate information about the product in the package.

Because we constantly strive to improve our products′ quality and nutritional value, the most up-to-date product information is on the package the product is purchased in. For that reason, we do not distribute product information lists as they could quickly become outdated. It is important to check the package label before purchasing for the gluten-free statement on the front/side/back of the package to verify that the package you choose is gluten free.

For products not labeled gluten free, we will always declare gluten containing ingredients if they are added to the product. If the ingredient declaration lists wheat, oats, barley, rye, or derivatives of these grains, then the product contains gluten. Examples of derivative ingredients include: malt, barley malt, organic malt, semolina, Durham, triticale, and spelt. We do not include gluten containing ingredients in the ′Natural Flavors′ or ′Spices′ on the product ingredient list. If there are gluten ingredients in our products, those ingredients are always clearly listed. (I bolded that part.)

If there are no gluten- containing ingredients listed in the product ingredient label, but the product does not make a gluten free claim, it is because we cannot fully assure that this product is gluten free. While we have not added gluten-containing ingredients, factors such as sourcing, conditions of manufacture, etc. do not allow us to provide the full level of assurance that a gluten free claim requires."

Perhaps you cannot tolerate the dairy? Are you newly diagnosed? if so, lactose may be an issue.

Temporary secondary lactose intolerance is very common.

Also. you are still healing your gut and many foods may give your grief at first. It is not always hidden gluten causing the problem.

Just a suggestion. :)

    • I would suggest a certified gluten free soy sauce, just to be safe.  Test that and if you react, you'll be able to rule out a gluten reaction from La Choy.  
    • I second cycling lady here, you should not go gluten free unless your doctor confirms you have celiac disease via the blood test and a biopsy. You need to be eating gluten for the testing to be accurate so a 30 day trial based on the gene is a REALLY bad idea, getting back on gluten for the testing is a nightmare once out of your system. Also going gluten free, what are you eating? If your eating just a bunch of gluten-free foods that are processed like the pre made breads, foods etc. your on the wrong path. Those are normally non enriched and more like junk food/comfort food. You need to eat a whole foods diet, of various greens, meats, nuts, seeds, (fruit if you can have it and sweet potatoes). etc. Doing this will boost your healing and you and introduce some of those processed foods later on sometimes. If you have celiac disease then your intestines are probably damaged and you will need to supplement some nutrients, we all have common ones like magnesium, iron, b-vitamins, folate, potassium, D etc. and you should talk to a good doctor about what your missing. The whole out of it things sounds like b-vitamins to me. Another point is going gluten free, you have to be careful for CC if your a celiac, after removing gluten re exposure to gluten makes your symptoms MUCH worse, and the tend to change and evolve in addition. Be sure to check the Newbie 101, your pretty much have to replace most of your cookware, condiments, etc. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/  
    • Do you still consume gluten and/or dairy? If so, I highly recommend that you eliminate both entirely. That includes anything with the ingredients; whey powder, casein, "lactose free" can be misleading as well. I also recommend taking a good probiotic regularly.  http://mentalhealthdaily.com/2016/03/01/10-best-probiotics-for-depression-anxiety-gut-brain-axis-modification/  I use Garden of Life brand for Mood. I buy it in the refrigerated section at Whole Foods. I also recommend double doses of B vitamin for a stint. However, you should have a full work up done by a neurologist, if you haven't already. Assuming everything comes  back negative then I highly recommend trying these few things.  I hope you can find answers and start feeling healthy again.
    • I suggest researching Mast Cell Activation Syndrome or EOE.   http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/eosinophilic-esophagitis/basics/definition/con-20035681  Also, Benadryl crosses the blood brain barrier and there have been long-term complications.  Talk to your doctor about using  another antihistamine.  If your reactions have been anaphylactic, you should have an epi pen.  I hope you feel better soon!  
    • Welcome!   Yikes, first I would suggest that you consider a new doctor.  Your doctor gave you some pretty bad advice biased on your posting.   The celiac gene is common.  Some 30% or more of the population carries the genes that could develop into celiac disease.  Are you sure it was not an antibodies test?  Telling you to go gluten free for a 30 day trial is another huge error.  Often they takes months to years for a celiac to recover.  A celiac is diagosed by blood tests and small intestinal biopsies obtained via an endoscopy.  There are times when an endoscopy is skipped because if financial reasons, too ill or long wait times.   Learn more at the University of Chicago's celiac website which is very informative and well-recognized.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/
