Wolfgang Puck Soups Review & Giveaway

Wolfgang Puck soupsCanned 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.

    Hopefully there is a finally a good gluten-free TOMATO soup. Thanks, Wioflgang Puck.

  2. Colleen Erin Cole says:

    I’ve tried several wolfgang puck soups… they are a great “just in case” meal if the day is just too busy to stop at the supermarket! :)

  3. Francisca W. says:

    Have seen the brand on supermarket shelves; just didn’t see it as gluten-free so never tried. Would love to now that it has gone down a new path!

    The thing about pre-pacakged soups & broths is that they always have wayyyyy too much sodium. Taste too salty, and not good for health. If there’s a tasty, low-sodium, gluten-free variety out there, I’m sure it’ll be big hit!

  4. mmmm they all sound delicious

  5. Melissa R says:

    I was just diagnosed with Celiac and am new to the gluten-free life….having cans of soup on hand that I know I can safely eat (and that taste good!) would be fantastic. I’d love to try them!

  6. I’m excited to try these soups. It’s always nice to have something on hand for a quick lunch on days when I don’t have any leftovers to eat.

  7. I subscribe to your emails.

  8. I tweeted The giveaway.

  9. I hadn’t notice these were gluten free! I’m new to this and have been bummed to have so few easy foods, this is lovely to know.

  10. Also, I shared this on my FB page :)

  11. Bridget Moran says:

    So glad more soups are coming out GF and labeled! Thanks much for letting me know!

  12. I am looking forward to gluten free soups and I hope they are reasonably priced. It is frustrating and time consuming enough being gf and then not to have something quick , tasty, and convenient when needed is not good. I waste a lot of time reading labels for gf soup products. I really don’t want to have to make cream soups etc., every time a recipe calls for one.

  13. Melissa D says:

    I have not heard of these! I would love to try them!

  14. I’m glad to see they are finally getting some of their soups labeled gluten free. I had contacted them last year about their soups that don’t list any gluten containing ingredients but didn’t have a gluten free label and was told they couldn’t guarantee that they weren’t possibly contaminated with gluten. It’s frustrating when you see a product that should be easily certified gluten free but isn’t because they don’t make the effort to ensure the prevention of cross contamination.

  15. I subscribe via email.

  16. I’m excited to try these :)

  17. Kathleen says:

  32. I used to buy them a year or two ago when they first came out. They had a chicken and dumpling soup (quit making it) that my late cat Henry and I used to share. That broth was one of the few people foods he’d eat (like smoked salmon and Chinese barbacued pork).

  33. I am one of your email subscribers.
