Has Anyone Had A Problem With Swanson's Chicken Broth?

I only ask because I thought I was being 100% gluten-free. I normally have severe reactions when contaminated, but I didn't have any for the last three months. Somehow, someway I have been consuming small amounts of gluten. The only thing that I switched was my chicken broth. I was using Progresso, but switched to Swanson's because of coupons!!! That was three months ago. Now my symptoms are worse than ever, but came on slowly over time!

Thanks!

Progresso and Kitchen Basics chicken broths are also gluten-free. I don't have either on hand right now so don't know if they contain soy.

Thanks! I knew that it was on a gluten-free list, which is why I switched from Progresso to Swanson's. I am pretty sure that this broth is the culprit. It could also be the msg, but I had never reacted to it before (I had that as part of my elimination diet once). I'll probably start staying away from that as well!

From now on I'm using Kitchen Basics or Pacific, as both are natural!

Thanks so much for the response!

Heather Anne, have you ever considered eliminating all processed foods and going to a very simple whole foods diet to see if you feel better?

Chicken broth is very easy to make yourself (especially if you have a crockpot) and you would know exactly what's in it. I made some good turkey broth before Thanksgiving...only turkey parts, water and salt. Much better than anything I could ever buy including those brands already mentioned.

My wife and I were just talking about that prior to Thankgiving. I found a couple cans of Swanson's chicken broth, and we were debating whether or not to use them. It seemed to us like I had a reaction to it which is why we quit using them, but we couldn't recall. We got rid of them. :) Better safe than sorry. After going on the GAPS diet for a while, we now either make our own broth or use Pacific Natural Foods Organic.

That's a lot of ingredients for a simple thing...

I know. We were making fun of it last weekend. Why would "organic" require so many more additives? Unless they used less chicken to start with and wanted to boost the flavor....

There are only two types of the swansons chicken broth that are gluten free:

Per their website

Swanson’s Chicken Broth 99% Fat Free

Swanson’s Natural Goodness Chicken Broth 100% Fat Free Less Sodium

All the other ones have gluten and clearly mark wheat in the ingredients label with an astrick.

If I stick to those two types of swansons and that's it, I don't get sick, but if I happen to accidentally get one of the other ones (like the organic one with 1/3 less sodium) I'm as sick as a dog!

    • ennis how do you test for Candida overgrowth did I have to see a functional doctor or do medical doctors test. It would seem like a plausible  explanation to my symptoms. 
    • Hello everyone.    Ive been diagnosed with celiac for about 4 years now. It's been a rough road but I feel like I've gotten as good as I can get with eliminating gluten completely from my diet.    I am an undergraduate student with a driven passion to become a nurse (I'm a guy, I know). I love the field and can't wait to help people every day.   As some of you may know, the nursing curriculum is extremely intense. I have an very strict routine and schedule where I can handle the rigor of my classes, work, and fitness (I am really into health and fitness, it's the best release from the stresses induced from school. I get 6 hours of sleep on the dot and manage to work, volunteer, study, and eat decently well. I love my life when it's on this routine and am so happy and social with people around me. I'm making progress, I'm moving forward, making something of my life.    But lately I've been suffering. I've been getting sick a lot more often from what seems to be random uncontrollable cross contamination from various things. When I get sick, my routine gets all messed up, I fall off my schedule, and things start going downhill. I like to call it the "celiac rut" I get stuck in. When I'm sick I can't work out, without working out I get extremely stressed and can't sleep. Without sleep I can't focus on my school and you know, the slippery slope that pretty much leads to lots of depression and anxiety.    This. Absolutely. Sucks. I fall behind in school and have trouble focusing on my priorities because I need more sleep to heal, and I can't go to class or the gym when I'm throwing up or spending hours on the toilet. Plus the mental symptoms turn me into an angry antisocial gluten monster. So that's always fun.   I really don't know how to manage this. I feel like at this rate I won't be able to keep up with my daily life. I physically can not handle the lifestyle I have when I get sick, and it piles up because when I get better I'm like weeks behind in material in my classes.    I am am normally a super happy outgoing guy, I love being the person I truly am. But gluten is singlehandedly tearing my life apart and the depression is starting to take it's toll.    I honestly dont know what to get out of posting this. I just hope that someone has some sort of trick or secret to get through this awful "celiac rut."
    • Hello, I have the same issue with the hair loss a few months after going gluten free, I have been getting the b12 shot and was also told to take Vit D and Calcium, Also told it was because my guts are still not happy after all i put them thru, It's very upsetting losing the amount of hair I have, my right side of my head is about 65% thinner then the left...Was told it see a Diet person right away. 
    • There is sort of a detox/withdrawal thing for the first few weeks for most. Keep a food diary, often after a glutening a new intolerance will creep up for awhile. Sort of your body associating another food with gluten, and or it just being picky while damaged. Write down everything you eat, how you fix it, seasonings etc. Change up the diet, and look for patterns.  My own gut is being picky today and had D after 2 meals so I am rotating up and narrowing down the culprit tomorrow myself....only see 4 common things in my food dairy.
    • Thanks for your reply. I'm currently grain free, although I ended up making kitchary because I needed something of substance in my stomach. Seems to have helped. Some other symptoms coming on strong, so just hoping I have some answers soon, to make sure I'm at least on the right path!
