Co-op are changing their labeling, which means all their fresh soups are going to be labelled gluten free! This even includes a minestrone one with gluten free pasta!
This week Co-op have become the first high street retailer to label all their fesh soups as gluten free!
This has to be some exciting news, we can now just walk into a shop and get a fresh soup that we know is safe, no need to trawl through shelves of cans to find one that doesn't use wheat to thicken or contain barley. Other supermarkets do have fresh soups which are gluten free but not labelled as such.
Not only does their entire fresh soup range hold the gluten free cross grain symbol they also have a range that are also vegetarian and even many that are vegan too.
Here is the full list of fresh soups, all holding the label
Broccoli and Stilton (Vegetarian)
Carrot and Coriander (Vegetarian)
Chicken and Veg
Chunky Veg (Vegan)
Lentil Dahl (Vegan)
Pea and Ham
Red Thai Chicken
Tomato and Basil (Vegan)
Tomato and Lentil (Vegan)
I'm not a massive soup eater but can't wait to try some of these, especially the Red Thai Chicken!
Co-ops latest blog about the new soup range
also has a handy list of everything they have gluten free, including the full free from range as well as naturally gluten free products.
They also mention they have a Christmas free from range coming out and that they will be working on more gluten, milk and egg free ranges next year. Co-op have upped their game a lot recently and now they are pushing even further, soon they will be matching the bigger supermarkets!
