Pacific Natural Foods Now Offering Gluten-Free Condensed Soups

When I first heard the news that Pacific Natural Foods was now making gluten-free condensed soups, I was thrilled! I am not patient enough to make my own condensed soup, though some people are. I had been using Progresso Creamy Mushroom Soup when I needed to use a condensed soup in the past and just made it work.

There are three varieties of the new condensed soups:

  • Cream of Celery
  • Cream of Mushroom
  • Cream of Chicken

There are so many recipes swirling around in my head now that I have heard this! My grandmother used to make a casserole called Chicken Sopa that my sister and I could not get enough of. It calls for both Cream of Mushroom and Cream of Chicken soups. My grandmother would use Doritos in place of the tortilla chips and that led my sister and I to rename the casserole. We began to call it “Dorito Casserole” from then on. While the original Doritos are not gluten-free, there are many varieties that are, including the Baked Doritos, which taste much like the original Doritos.

Pacific Natural Foods has a number of other gluten-free products in addition to the new condensed soups. Those products include:

  • All Soy Beverages
  • All Creamy Soups
  • All Broths
  • All Iced Teas
  • All Condensed Soups
  • Organic Almond Original, Vanilla, and Chocolate
  • All Natural Hazelnut Original
  • Low Fat Rice Plain and Vanilla
  • Organic Spicy Chicken Fajita
  • Organic Savory White Bean with Smoked Bacon
  • Organic Split Pea with Ham & Swiss Cheese
  • Organic Savory Chicken & Wild Rice
  • All Natural Rosemary Potato Chowder
  • All Natural Thai Sweet Potato Soup
  • All Natural Chipotle Sweet Potato Soup

The ingredients will always be clearly labeled on the product so there is no confusion. I love companies like that! I would much rather give my hard-earned money to a company that cares about those with food sensitivities and makes life just a little bit easier.

Pacific Natural Foods was started back in 1987 by Chuck Eggert and a group of people when they set out to make it easy to enjoy delicious foods made with all-natural, wholesome and organic ingredients. They began as a soy milk making company and have grown to producing many other products today.

    These soups arrived here some time this summer but I’ve yet to pick any of them up. I was waiting for casserole weather and now that it’s finally here, I must get at least the cream of mushroom version and see how it is. I’ve heard they’re all excellent 😉

    I used the cream of celery in a crockpot recipe earlier this week & it was great! This is now my #2 favorite gf item – the Nature Valley Almond Crunch bars are seriously delicious.

    Thanks for sharing this! It’s a great time to be gluten-free as it seems more and more companies are starting to give us products to make our life easier. It’s so nice to be able to open a can of soup and toss together one of those “quickie” casseroles! I’m going to be hitting a local retailer and getting some cream of chicken soup this week! Can’t wait. I have a fab recipe for chicken enchiladas that I used to love to make and it’ll be hitting the table here soon!!! Thanks again, Lisa
