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!)

It takes much more than a week to be " cured". :).

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.

    • Hi Anns and welcome   Do you think that I am on the right course to see if I possibly have Celiac?   Yes, it was smart of you to consider the possibility and its good that you've had the tests. Both the aneamia and bloating are symptoms, although of course they may be unrelated. Best way to find out is to check as you are doing.   Can this develope later in life ( I'm 46)?   Yes, I think its most common discovered later rather than sooner.   I ate a meal last night that was gluten free and did not feel like nearly as bloated after eating, would I notice a change that quickly?  Thanksort for your input.   Yes, I noticed far less of a heavy feeling after eating very soon after diet changes. However you would be better off not trying gluten free just yet. I collected some links and other stuff here, it may be of use: Your best bet is to eat as normal and wait for the test results. If your doctors eliminate celiac there's nothing to stop you excluding gluten at that point to see if it helps. But before then you need to keep eating it to ensure an accurate diagnosis.  All the best  
    • Well HIV undermines the entire immune system as I understand it, so that would be akin to using dynamite to put out a kitchen fire! There is some work going on to try and retrain the immune system to not see gluten as a threat though: http://www.immusant.com/docs/ImmusanT DDW Data Release FINAL 5.24.16.pdf  I'm laughing as I write this imagining the conversations you could have with people as you tell them you'd like to contract HIV so that you can eat a decent sandwich        
    • So, I have just yesterday had blood work done to test for Celiac so I am waiting on my results.  This was prompted when my Dr discovered that I was severely anemic and after other testing sent me to  Hematology.  I actually inquired if I could possibly have a gluten sensitive because of the anemia (which has improved with an iron supplement) and feeling bloated after eating and well most of the time actually and after some research I found that this could be a sign that of a gluten sensitivity.   The Hematology Dr also recommend an upper GI.  Do you think that I am on the right course to see if I possibly have Celiac?  Can this develope later in life ( I'm 46)?  I ate a meal last night that was gluten free and did not feel like nearly as bloated after eating, would I notice a change that quickly?  Thanksort for your input.   ANN
    • Yes, the first time you use gluten free flours, it feels like a challenge. ... of a gluten-free living after her elder kid was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. View the full article
    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
