Campbell's Canned Chicken Broth
0

15 posts in this topic

Campbell's Canned Chicken Broth- The ingredients look safe, but because most Campbells soups have gluten in them I never buy it. However, I'm sick and a friend brought me this brand. I googled trying to find out if it is safe or if anyone has had problems. It doesn't appear to be on Campbell's gluten free list. Only the Swanson brand is. So I'm a bit confused. I hate to trust it since so many of their products have gluten that it surely must be made on lines that process gluten ingredients. Just being careful. I really want to use it since I'm sick.

Anyone?

I use chicken bouillion cubes and make a stock from scratch with no problems. Good luck!

Call this number:

1-800-TRY-SOUP

You should be able to get the answer from them. Personally since it is not on their gluten-free list I would not use it.

You have to be careful with chicken bouillon cubes, too. When I was first diagnosed and cleaned out my pantry, I had a jar of chicken bouillon cubes that had wheat in them, which I donated to a food drive. HerbOx is gluten-free and says so on the label.

There are several canned or boxed chicken broths that are gluten-free and include Pacific Natural Foods, Progresso and Kitchen Basics. I just bought some from Food Lion, who now has My Essentials as their store brand, and it says gluten-free right on the label. There may be others but I always read the label.

I think the regular flavor has hydrolyzed wheat gluten in it. Do you have the regular? Or the low sodium?

Campbells soup ingredients are different in different countries.

I haven't used it or Swanson's in years because even the low sodium is not realy low sodium. Kitchen basics regular has less sodium.

You guys are great!!!

I always use Kitchen Basics and love it.

Jestgar-The canned chicken broth I have from Campbells is the low sodium kind.

No gluten ingredients but it isn't on their gluten free list so I am going to assume shared lines and donate it to the food bank.

Thanks everyone! And thanks for the number Ravenwood!

It just doesn't make sense to take a chance..I'm dealing with a cold and I don't want to make it worse by glutening myself. I need to start buying Kitchen Basics by the case so I don't run out. ;)

I knew you guys could help!!

Have you tried Better than Bouillon? It is a very thick paste that comes in jars and is actually made with chicken so it is meatier than other commercial broths/stocks I have tried. Many of their flavours are gluten free such as beef and maybe even the lobster. There are several gluten-free flavours.

Just another option. Looks like you have many other great suggestions, though! :D

I like your suggestion though, and I will try to find that. It sounds great! I know you are in Canada right? I hope we have it in the US!

I've seen Better than Bouillon at my local Wally World as well as other grocery stores so you shouldn't have too much of a problem finding it.

Oh cool! Thank you! And just to update you all about how careful I was not to ingest gluten and avoided the canned chicken broth. I then proceeded to gluten myself by eating Palmer's chocolate peanut clusters. No gluten ingredients. Says may contain tree nuts or peanuts. (which I took to mean would not contain traces of wheat) Not True! Um anyway, I ate them and felt really lousy and googled and Palmer's site says all of their candy is processed in a facility that process wheat products. Damn! I can't win. Now nauseous, tired, depressed, and achy and my DH sores are reacting and burning. I E-mailed them to ask why that nice label on their site was not on the bag. Wow.

But at least it wasn't the chicken broth. I'm sticking to Dove Chocolate from now on.

I just wanted to add, as Karen did, that Campbell's US and Campbells' Canada , have a very different gluten free listing. Canada gets more,the US gets SQUAT! B)

Oh, darn it. Companies with that labeling really concerns me - I see that here, too. Those dummies! :angry:

In Canada, Campbell's will clearly disclose any gluten ingredient by naming the grain in the ingredients list. Products which do not list such an ingredient are likely safe for most of us. The products that are labeled Gluten-Free in Canada are subject to additional controls and testing.

In Canada, the Campbell Soup Company has an ongoing project to review and revise their ingredients to reduce salt and to eliminate gluten where possible. To protect his privacy, I will not identify him, but I converse regularly with a senior management person there. His phone rings off the hook every time they change something.

These observations, again, apply to Canada only.

    • My numbers are right at the lower border of in range. I don't know if that's significant. Hemoglobin 12.7.  When I had surgery a year ago it was 10.3 afterwards.  I have heard of testing ferritin. Does low ferritin but normal CBC indicate anemia? I'm also wondering how quickly a CBC rebounds versus low ferritin if you have compromised iron absorption. 
    • Hello everyone I just received a call from my doctor's office that the Celiac lab work they drew returned 3 positive results.  I asked her to check me for Celiac as it was a suspicion of mine. I don't see the GI until next week. Can someone tell me what these lab numbers mean. I have tried to figure it out, but I'm not getting it. Can these numbers signal 'weak' chance or is it you have it or you don't? I am 37 years old. I have vitiligo (since 12 years old), chronic autoimmune related hives, thyroid removed from Graves disease at 20 years old, chronic anemia (last ferritin was 2). I've had meningitis and shingles. I had my gallbladder removed 1.5 years ago and the chronic pain in my URQ has never left. CT scan last August shows only cysts on ovaries, which I also have recurrent problems with. Stomach pains now for months and months, cramping, burning. Joint pain, headaches, anxiety, etc. Any advice please!? I am not so concerned about having to cut gluten as I am hoping that this may finally make me feel human again.
    • Only you can make a decision on whether to do a challenge or not.  My hubby went Gluten Free 12 years before I was officially diagnosed.  He refuses to do a challenge, because we need to pay our bills and we know that gluten makes him sick.  Why would anyone remain gluten free for more than 16 years if they did not need to?   He does tell me that I have received way more support from medical, family and friends.  It also has helped other members in my family (easy to ask for a celiac screening for my kid).   Good luck!  Do what is best for you.  
    • A CBC would check for size of blood cells, number of blood cells and hemoglobin levels, etc.  If you are within range, you probably would not be considered anemic.  A ferritin test (iron stores) can be checked too.  If very low, it starts to create symptoms.   https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anemia
