Fyi, my wife was contaminated last night after eating Progresso cream of mushroom soup. It's labled gluten free, but there are progresso's that are NOT gluten free so they may be processed in the same place. Mind you, she's super sensitive. Just wanted to get the warning out there

Their gluten free soups are usually loaded with soy. Could your wife have an issue with soy? Early on I thought I was being CC'd by many gluten-free products when the real problem was that I didn't know I also had issues with soy.

I remember seeing something that the gluten-free soups were made at one factory and the others at another factory. Which is why a few soups that seem gluten-free are not labelled gluten-free. I have been looking and can't find it. I'll try to email them and see what they say.

Many people on here use thier gluten-free labelled soups sucessfully. I rarely use canned soups as they have too much sodium, but I have used a few Progresso ones.

Just emailed them. I'll post the answer I get here.

you know you could be right. She's never had a problem with Soy in the past, but as I learn about Soy and how it's manufactured(a lot of it from this board) we've tried to make it something to stay away from. Thanks for the tip!

response from Progresso. Sounds like it may be separate maunfacturing facilities. Why they dont want to say that, I don't know.

Thank you for contacting us about gluten in Progresso soup.

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 For that reason, we do not distribute product information lists as they could quickly become outdated.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.

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.

Additional information regarding gluten may be obtained by contacting your health care professional or one of these organizations.

I am soup lover, so does this letter from General Mills are stating that they cannot claiming that the gluten free soups are made on gluten free dedciated lines? it seem like they are just stating that it does not contain any gluten ingredients in the soup at all. But at same time, it is at your risk of try this products but they are not liabity for anything happens. It is pretty much at our risk of try this products without gettting General Mills in trouble. it is pretty much similar to Chex cereals that are supposely gluten free too From what I have been reading other threads for awhile, i noticed some celiacs are not able to tolerate chex cereals that are labeled gluten free too.

I find this since that is pretty hot topic about the products that the companies are trying to be more prompt to labeling allergns on their foods to make easier for those people that dont know how to read labels very carefully or those are try out the new fad diet which is Gluten free etc.

is it a false adversiting? or is it just encourage celiacs to buy their products because they labeled it gluten free?

i find that is very twisting in the way...

Alright, the deal with Chex is that there are many out there with gluten issues that do just fine with it. However, those who do not probably have an issue with soy (which apperently some of the vitamins in it are sourced from) or to BHT (a chemical used to keep freshness). Both of these can cause gluten-like reactions.

At any rate, i can no longer do progresso soup. I used to like the mushroom the first can or two, them my stomach decided no more and gave me belly aches after it. Gluten? I don't think so. Richness? Big possibility there. I can no longer handle rich foods and whatnot.

"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"

To me this says they only label as gluten-free the ones they are very certain are gluten-free, including Chex and BC mixes, etc.

This is what I got from it as well. Instead of leaving us to label reading, they are making it idiot proof for us. For those less sensitive to CC or willing to risk questionably sourced ingredients, they can of course feel free to eat the ones without obvious gluten containing ingredients but that are not marked gluten free.

In the past I have eating both the marked and unmarked cans of soup. I did not get sick. Since that time, I have become not only more anal retentive about what I buy, but have developed a medical condition which prevents me from eating (so far as I have found yet) any canned soup. I'm not sure if I would go back to buying the unmarked cans, but for each of us it has to be a personal choice. Just because something doesn't have the words gluten free stamped on the front, does not automatically mean it contains gluten. Just because one person eats one of these things and gets sick, does not mean it did contain gluten.

    • Cycling Lady, LMAO at IBeStumped!  So true. Yes, he is trying the band aid approach it seems.  That's probably the most frustrating thing of all.  So yesterday I get a call back from his office and they say to stop taking the Viberzi and switch back to Imodium!  I reminded them that Imodium didn't work, I had already used it 8 days with no changes.  His assistant informed me that that is all he can recommend at this time until he sees me at my next appointment which is 5/24!  I live near Chicago and I am about to make an appointment to go to the University of Chicago hospital which is the top celiac research hospital in the country.  Hopefully they can give me better answers.
    • 7Hi jen and welcome No-one can diagnose remotely via nterwe  posts but if there was such a game as celiac / gluten sensitive bingo, I would be calling 'House!' having read your account above... Lots of things fit the pattern as I'm sure your lurking has revealed.  It's a tricky condition to diagnose however so you may have a little wait before you join the coolest club in town and get your funky celiac membership card For now it's really important  that you stay on gluten. Keep eating it as accurate testing requires it. Ask your doctor to check the boxes for celiac testing alongside your liver blood tests. There should be enough in your history to get this without hassle but if they're reluctant INSIST and don't be afraid to assert your reasonable suspicion and wish to clarify and exclude. A good liver specialis will be aware of the possible links so you should be ok. If not gt second opinion. Ask for a full celiac panel as there are variety of tests. Find further info here There's a lot to take in,  but be positive, I think you are on the right track and if so, you could soon be feeling better than you ever thought possible!
    • Hello,  I am in a job that I travel every 3rd week...It gets challenging becuase many times I am doing audits of warehouses and they dont even have a cafeteria.  I usually bring gluten-free protein bars as a back up if I have to miss a meal and then eat when I get back to the hotel.  Just a suggestion because they certainly fill me up....Have a safe trip...Kelly  
    • Hello all, I'm a new member here but have lurked for a while. I'm looking for some advice regarding my medical history, possible symptoms of celiac and next steps. General info: female, low level smoker, drink alcohol, aged 32. I started having bad gastro issues when I was around 17. Since then I've consistently suffered from chronic diarrhoea, frequent discomfort in the tummy area, feelings of dehydration despite drinking at least eight glasses a day and frequent fatigue for no real reason.  In 2008/9 I visited the doctor as my diarrhoea was having an effect on my studies at the time. The doctor tested me for allergies; eggs, fish, gluten and lactose and did a "standard" blood test. Everything came back fine except my liver results, which were elevated to double (I did not the see the results for myself so can't say which enzymes etc). I was told to drink less and take Imodium. The doctor implied that perhaps I was stressed and / or anxious and, still being young plus a student who regularly went out drinking, I accepted this advice and carried on with my life.  I would here add that I am not an unusually stressed person - in fact, learning to deal with my unpredictable bowels has forced me to be quite a laid-back person!  Fast forward to 2016. I had been living with my partner for two years by this point who had noticed my bowel habits and informed me that this was definitely not normal. He encouraged me to try out a gluten free diet since I was apprehensive about visiting a doctor only to be fobbed off with Imodium again. I did the diet as strictly as a newbie can for around two months before we set off travelling. During the diet I noticed that after a couple of weeks of extreme tiredness I felt quite a lot better - I kept a food journal at the time which showed that I almost immediately had diarrhoea once after eating an ice-cream, i felt bloated and unwell after an attempt to make oat muffins (maybe i didn't cook them very well though!) and I felt bloated and had diarrhoea after eating some fish fried in flour (We made a mistake in ordering them but I didn't want to complain). My partner also reported that my mood swings (which I admit can be a little unpredictable) were much better.  Once we started travelling I gave up and ate what I was given as we were staying with friends etc much of the time. Toward the end of our trip I started to feel extremely tired, to the point of having to stay in for "rest" days, and my guts were very unhappy. I chalked it up to irregular eating patterns, too many beers and late nights in general. During the trip I also had an extreme hangover after drinking wheat beer. And, while of course I accept that any overindulgence can make you ill, I really felt that that level of hangover was quite out of the ordinary. Finally, I developed a strange lump under my armpit during this period. Now back at home, I decided to go to the doc and check out the odd lump under my armpit. The doctor was pretty confident that it was nothing to worry about cancer-wise but she ordered a battery of blood tests just to be sure. The lump is fine (good news) but the results showed elevated GGT, high-ish ALT and normal AST liver enzymes plus signs of dehydration in red bloods / higher (but not concerning) levels of white bloods. I'm scheduled to go back for another blood test to double-check liver function and discuss results - if it is again high she will send me for a ultrasound.  Does this history chime with anyone here? I know that the correct course in basic health terms is to stop drinking for some time (easily done) and stop smoking forever (easy to say...) but I cannot help but think that something else is going on here. I will discuss this with my doctor and make clear that my bowel issues have not been resolved and that the initial IBS diagnosis wasn't based on any thorough testing so to speak. In the meantime - does anyone have any advice for me in times of avenues to research or experience of similar symptoms? Gluten remains in my diet but in all other respects it could be regarded as very healthy, I think anyway... (pescatarian, plenty of fruit and veg, little to no sugar on a daily basis, not much dairy to speak of...) Thanks in advance and sorry for bending everyone's' ear about this... I guess it's just taken a long time for me to admit I might be sick and I need some help. Jen
    • Wish I could give you a hug. Unfortunately I know how that feels with Neurologists, Internists, Endocrinologists, Rheumatologists, GIs..... I got so tired of crying my drive home after refusing yet another script for Prozac.  I do hope your GI can give you some answers even if it is just to rule out other possible issues. Keep on the gluten and we are here for you.
