Gluten Free Information for CongraFoods (Manwich, Hunt's, Libby's Etc.)

I recently went out and bought some Manwich, because, well, I hadn't had a sloppy Joe in ages!  And I saw someone at work have one for lunch.  So I grabbed a can, didn't really read over the label too well, but seemed fine.  When I got home, I noticed that one of the ingredients simply said Flavours.  I remember from when Amanda was first diagnosed, that general terms like that should be flagged.

So off to the internet I went find out if Manwich is actually gluten free or not.  Manwich is manufactured by CongraFoods which has many brands under it's belt including Hunt's, Libby's, Chef Boyardee to name a few.  I searched their website for a bit and quickly came across a nutritional information page that answered my question:
Which of your products contain gluten?
We are sorry to inform you that we do not have a source that lists the gluten content of our products. However, our product labels list common allergens, such as wheat, for those allergic to wheat gluten.

  1. What you found on the page said the products don't contain wheat gluten (which is not equivalent to ALL forms of gluten).

    So how can these foods be gluten free?

  2. I agree. There are other forms of gluten besides wheat. I think their answer is rather shady and non commital
