Campbell's Announces Gluten-free Website

Campbell’s now has a new website, Campbell’s Without Gluten, which lists all their gluten-free products. The site has been up for a while but I kept thinking they were going to add some soups to the list. They used to have about five or so, that did not contain gluten at one time. The new gluten-free product list does not have any soups listed, just in case you have the old list that listed a few of those as gluten-free. The company representative I spoke to said it is possible that some soups might be added to the gluten-free list eventually, as they are under evaulation.

The good news is that all the products listed as gluten-free are now confirmed to be gluten-free. There is no guessing or assuming going on by Campbell’s regarding what is and is not gluten-free in their product lines. We posted an update from Campbell’s about this issue earlier this year.

Some of you might remember that there was a lot of controversy a while back about products from this company. Items in question at the time were certain Pace and Prego products. In fact, quite a ruckus ensued in the gluten-free community over this issue, but it turns out that Campbell’s just wanted to make sure they relayed the most accurate information to consumers. It seems that the company did not know exactly what was gluten-free for a while, so they removed items from their gluten-free listing until they could figure things out.  The company chose to make sure what was and was not gluten-free before sharing the information with consumers. The last thing any company needs to do is guess whether or not something contains gluten – or any other allergen for that matter.

There  are gluten-free items in the following categories:

Campbell’s Tomato Juice / VS Splash Drinks / VS Diet Splash Drinks / V8 Vegetable Juice / V8 V Fusion Drinks / V8 Fusion Smoothies / Swanson Broths and Stocks / Prego Sauces

Here is an excerpt from new website, explaining new company procedures for gluten-free items:

We analyze gluten-free products to ensure compliance with our strict gluten-free standards at the time of initial production. We perform ongoing testing on finished products on a frequency of at least once every six months to assure continued compliance with our gluten-free policy.

We should applaud Campbell’s efforts to take the time to get things right, even though the process took a while. But I’m still waiting for a gluten-free line of soups to be introduced from this company. I just feel sure that gluten-free soups in the red and white cans are on the way! And in the meantime, 25 store brands already sell gluten-free soup and soup mixes, according to the Grocery Guide.

  1. The Campbell’s rep I spoke to indicated that they removed the five soups that were once on their gluten-free list. She offered no other information abut them offering gluten-free soups in the future. Since Progresso now has several soups labeled gluten-free, it would make sense that Campbell’s will follow suit eventually. Personally, I prefer giving my money to Progresso. Not only are they removing MSG from their soups (finally!), they removed ingredients I could not pronounce in the newly labeled gluten-free soups. Go Progresso!

  3. Campbell’s soups list of ingredients reads like dog food. It also has a ton of hfcs and weird olis. I used to eat it when I was a kid, but that was a long time ago and I bet it had different ingredients then. If it comes in a can or a box or plastic you might consider not eating it.

  4. Pam, have you tried Heinz brand Cream of Tomato soup? It’s the closest I can find to Campbell’s cream of tomato. Also, Pacific Natural Foods makes an organic roasted red pepper and tomato soup that is excellent. I bought it in one of the local grocery stores – not sure which but probably Whole Foods or Giant, possibly Safeway.

  5. I also have a lot of recipes that call for condensed soups. For cream of mushroom I use Progresso. For cream of chicken, I order Pacific Natural Foods Organic Cream of Chicken Condensed Soup on Amazon. They sell it in a pack of 12.

  6. I was raised on Campbells Soups. Campbells Soups have been around since I can remember and am surprised the company isn’t up with the times.
    Come on Campbells get with it. A lot of my recipes call for Cr of Mushroom, Cr of Chicken and Cr of Celery soups. Ladies, Target has a good supply. It is Target’s brand and in a square box. Very good. Try them.

  7. Laura,
    Progresso has a good, gluten free cream of mushroom soup. Might be your best bet until Campbells changes their recipe. I sure miss my campbells tomato soup with my grilled cheese!
