Anybody Use Penzey's Spices?

They have always been my favorite and my spice drawer is almost exclusively from their selection. But as I am continuing to make the clean sweep through my kitchen to get rid of anything possibly gluten-tainted, I am wondering if spices are of concern (gawd, I hope not!)

I love Penzy's spices. Pure spices should not be a concern.  Unless you used the flour spoon in the cinnamon.

Abby, I use them!  I get my in-laws to pick them up for me when they go to the U.S.  None that I have contain gluten - in fact, I do not think any do (but I have not called them myself for over a year).  My spice cupboard contains 85+ spices I roast and grind.  I am a spice fanatic!  :D   Sometimes I open the pantry and sigh deeply... ;)

 

This reminds me - I owe you some recipes!

My bff chef pal uses Penzey's and I have eaten in her home many, many times...no problem.

 

When my McCormick spices start to dwindle, I am going to try some Penzey's.

I am pretty sure she means you, not me. ;)

 

 I'm sure if our resident expert meanders along she'll be able to explain that there is an important difference

Oh this is good to hear. Thank you all! I am also a spice fanatic and the thought of havin got start over with all new spices is horrifying. Plus, Penzey's really are my favorite - always so fresh and bright tasting, never "dusty". I am fortunate that they have two retail locations in my city, but I used to order from them before they opened up here. Tomorrow I will be visiting them again to re-up a few things!

Our Penzys is next to an olive oil store and a Ten Thousand Villages. You can't get off that block for less than $100.

Stop it! All we have in this town is piles and piles of snow. No food stores or book stores. And I've read every decent book in our wee library about 12 times each.

Also, if you sign up for Penzy's mailing list, they'll send you a catalog each month with a coupon for a free spice that can be redeemed at the store.  No other purchase necessary.  My coworker does it.

I know--old thread but I use Penzey's and I emailed the to confirm they were gluten-free because my cupboard is full of their spices and mixes.  This was their response "You may be happy to know that spices are naturally gluten-free, and we do not use any wheat, rye, oats, or barley in any of our products. Ingredients are clearly listed on our seasonings as well. We are in the process of testing all of our spices for gluten, but until everything is tested we cannot claim to be gluten free."  I was mostly concerned about their mixes since I use a lot of them.  We used to live 2 miles from a retail store and it was like a second home to me :D.  Now, I have to mail order....

    • Allergy or Preference? Waiter asks
      At my local Five Guys, I told the counter guy that I had to avoid gluten for medical reasons. I was ordering a burger with no bun and some fries. He yelled back "Allergy Alert!" and every line cook immediately changed gloves and cleaned their work space. Will I go back? You bet I will!
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      The office is located in another city than where I go. There is no receptionist at the location closest to me meaning patients wait for the doctor to open her closed door to call their names for a consult. So, I would have to knock on her door which would really make her say that I'm sick since I keep writing letters AND showing up in person. The main office is too far for me to travel with road construction going on for the remainder of the year. I suppose I could mail the letter instead. But the staff is very irresponsible so it might be thrown away. The doctor probably told them that nothing needed correction in my records so ignore further requests from me. The other staff member I dealt with seemed normal, but I complained to the doctor about the staff member I dealt with today when she failed to update my phone number that I gave to her a few times (and which she said she updated), which resulted in me showing up for an appointment (I traveled a distance) one of the testers thought she canceled by leaving voicemail for phone number I no longer had. What I mean is I told the doctor that the staff member said she updated my phone number when the doctor asked me why I was there when I showed up for that cancelled appointment. Unfortunately, this staff member answers the phone most of the time. I'm sure she did what she could to make me look bad to the doctor to make her look good because I complained about her. I feel like scheduling an appointment with a psychologist to tell her what happened with this name calling. I'm sure it's against therapist code or I'd like a psychologist's feedback on this doctor's behavior. There are other patient complaints about her on the Internet how she laughs at patient's pain and suffering. I feel that's how she treated me. Update: The staff member called me back to tell me the doctor amended my report and she put it in the mail. I wonder if the doctor discussed what she said to me with another doctor who told her what she did was unacceptable in the medical field. I am hoping my report is amended or new negative comments are not added by the doctor to say I keep writing her letters or something in that regard.

      The letter I am suggesting has nothing to do with the doctor.  I would type it and walk it to the desk when are in the building for your other appointment. 
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Thanks. I'm not sure if the doctor will read another email I send and that's the way I'm told by staff to contact her. It will just confirm that I keep writing her letters although I only sent her one email about it! I already told the staff and her that I didn't want my medical records sent to any doctor's office, but I don't know if they will do it out of spite. It was scary talking to this doctor because she wouldn't listen or let me get a word in...I guess that's the reason why I feel the need to raise my voice at this office. When I requested a Lyme disease prescription from another doctor years ago before I knew I had celiac disease, this ignorant doctor told me not to come back to his office because there's no such thing as Lyme disease so only crazy people think they have it. I thought that was the worst experience I had with a doctor, but this experience was worse. I mean this neuropsychiatrist kept calling me a sick person over and over. It's so scary dealing with doctors like this. I really don't know how many other doctors may have wrote in my records that my symptoms are all in my head because celiac disease isn't real.   And my neurologist said this neuropsychiatrist was great. Maybe he says that about all the doctors he refers to patients to? I don't know if you call her personality psychopath since she appeared really nice during my consult, but she was thinking all this negative s*** in her mind at the time or different than she appeared to be.
    • Nature's Bounty Protein & Vitamin Shake Mix
      Sort of funny.  Says no wheat at the bottom but also says this " Other Ingredients: Proprietary Protein Blend (Soy Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Concentrate), Cocoa (processed with alkali), Inulin, Oat Fiber, Fructose, Natural Flavors, Maltodextrin, Soy Lecithin, Tricalcium Phosphate, Xanthan Gum. Contains milk and soy ingredients. Contains wheat ingredients.   I bet they do not use gluten free oats, so its a bit of a gamble.  Not one a Celiac should take as there is no such thing as "not severe Celiac".  Even if you don't feel the damage, consuming gluten will start damaging you.  Maybe its just catching up with you.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
