Canned soups are something I have stayed away from since going gluten free, but when I was contacted about sampling these soups, I wanted to give them a try. There are times when having a meal in a can is very convenient.
Wolfgang Puck has a line of soups and broths. Not all of their organic soups are gluten free, but the ones that are include free range chicken with white and wild rice, signature tortilla, tomato basil bisque, hearty lentil vegetable, and black bean.
The gluten free soups are labeled “gluten free” on the front of the can to the right of Wolfgang’s shoulder. Here is what their FAQ page says about their gluten-free products:
Over the next several months, the recipes for some of the Wolfgang Puck soups and stocks will move to gluten free. Look for the gluten free claim on each product prior to purchase. Wolfgang Puck Organic broths have always been and still are gluten free. Broth products are also adding the gluten free claim.
Wolfgang Puck’s primary concern is the safety of our consumers. All of our recipes are hand crafted, which explains why some products contain food starches and others do not. Many of our products share manufacturing processes and equipment with gluten containing ingredients and products. For this reason, Wolfgang Puck has decided not to label gluten free on products where we could not ensure compliance with our strict gluten-free standards.
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.
When questioned further, I learned that their gluten-free soups, stocks and broths are tested to less then 10 parts per million. That is below the proposed 20 ppm and the same standard used by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization.
I was sent three varieties to sample, the signature tortilla, free range chicken with white and wild rice, and tomato basil bisque. All of them were very good. In fact, when my gluten-free son ate the tortilla soup he said it tasted very much like the soup I make and he really enjoyed it. I was not able to try the tomato bisque because it contains a little cream, but my middle son loves tomato soup and he greatly enjoyed that one.
I love the fact that all of the Wolfgang Puck soups are preservative free and contain no added MSG. The ingredients used are ingredients that I would put into my own soups without all those hard to pronounce ingredients found in many foods.
