Are there any brand in particular that are gluten free? What stores carry gluten free spices? I live in Canada if that helps.

 

Thanks!

I usually buy McCormick. If you get a mix - like a taco seasoning - it could contain wheat. Plain pure spices are just spices.

I am not in Canada but I think that brand is there. I buy other brands, too if that is what the store has.

OK thank you! I was just diagnosed last Tuesday. I was reading that sometimes spices could have gluten in them so I was curious as to which brands were best.I have been getting stomach issues still and I wasn't sure if it was because of the spices I have been using or how long it takes for stomach issues, diarrhea, light headedness, tingling in feet and arms to go away. Doctors didn't tell me anything..just not to eat gluten...(I wish they would have at least told me more than that!)

We use a lot of the Weber spices if you have those.  They are labeled gluten free and are very good!

I understand that, my doctor had the nurse tell me over the phone, and she said "look it up on the internet"  LOL.  I asked if they had anything and they mailed me an photocopied packet of stuff that was vague and not specific.  You are in the right place with us :)  We have some Canadians so hopefully they will chime in on this one.  Just take care to make sure any product information you look up is for the Canada side, there are some differences in the products and availability between you guys and the U.S.

We use Epicure.... Everything they carry is gluten free since May of 2013. They have everything from taco seasonings to salad dressings, spices, you name it. It's not in stores, it's kind of like Avon or Scentcy. But once you find a rep in your area they are an awesome brand :) Here's a link to their site. Not sure if they get you in touch with a rep or not...

If you are cleaning out your current spice rack, the only thing I know to be wary of are "anti-flaking agents". That could mean flour, and they don't say what kind. 

So something like basil or parsley that is just dried leaves would be safe while something like garlic powder may not be, and why combination seasonings may be more likely to contain some added ingredient that isn't actually a spice.

http://www.penzeys.com/ .  I emailed them and they are totally gluten-free.

 

"Thanks so much for your interest in our spices. 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 hope this information is helpful. Have a great day,""

I'm not sure if everything they make is gluten free, but many Badia brand spices are certified gluten free by the GFCO. I am in the U.S. and get them at Big Y supermarket, but I imagine they must be available at other places or online too.

My experience with "anti-flaking agents" is that wheat is not used because of the way it would alter flavor. Usually it's cellulose.
