Does tomato paste or sauce contain any gluten? I have non-celiac gluten sensitivity, and have found most "sauces", including salsa, contain some gluten. I can't find how to ask Hunt's if there is any in the can of tomato paste I have.
Why aren't all manufacturers of packaged products indicating whether or not their products contain gluten, considering it is the newly-found cause of allergies, as well as harmful to a person with Celiac disease. Additionally, why don't manufacturers willingly provide a complete list of ingredients? They don't have to tell the quantity, for the public, so it should not endanger their recipe secrecy.
Last I knew their tomato sauce as well as paste is gluten-free BUT their ketchup & bar-b-que sauce aren't. I don't use any of these types of tomato products myself so I recommend to be safe that you try their site at http://www.conagrafoods.com. At the bottom of the page will be a Contact Us link. Another great resource is www.celiac.com for info, products & awesome forums. :) Stay safe & nice detective work on your part! :)
You may want to consider growing a few tomato plants and canning your own, so in the future you will know what is and isn't in them. It really is a lot easier than most think.
