Ortega Taco Seasoning Mix
0

9 posts in this topic

Does anyone know if the Ortega Taco Seasoning Mix is alright? I don't see any wheat listed in the ingredients which are: yellow corn flour, salt, maltodextrin, paprika, spices, modified corn starch, sugar, garlic powder, citric acid, autolyzed yeast extract, natural flavor and carmel color. It does not have a statement saying it contains any of the top 8 common allergens. We had this last night for dinner and my daughter and I are both feeling nausous today.

There is no phone number to contact the company (which I think is just ridiculous) but there is an email address so I did email them.

Thanks for any help you can provide on this.

The ingredients look fine to me, but there are a lot of them and it might have MSG or something else that's bothering you.

I usually just use cumin, garlic, onion, and pepper (either chipolte or cayenne) to season my taco meat and avoid the packets.

Hope you feel better soon!

Thanks Carla. I'll let you know if I hear from the company. I thought the ingredients look fine but wasn't sure about the carmel.

Can you give me the exact measurements for the taco seasoning you make? It sounds great!

I'm one of those cooks that never measures! LOL

Just brown the ground beef with onions and garlic if you're using fresh, then I sprinkle the other spices (and garlic powder if you didn't use fresh), to taste. I'm VERY generous when I use spices. The chili peppers come in a spice bottle at the grocery.

Sorry I can't be more exact ... I cook everything by taste and what I feel like that day!

McCormick's taco seasonings are gluten free, and they state that they will clearly list any and all gluten ingredients, so you can feel comfortable interpreting their labels.

I found this on their website:

Q. Do you have a gluten free list for Ortega products?

A. Ortega has been following a strict labeling policy with regard to any allergens in our foods and incoming ingredients.

We have insisted that our suppliers notify us if gluten is used in any of their ingredients and yet is not declared on their labeling. Thus, we believe we have uncovered any potential use of gluten containing ingredients.

Therefore, any Ortega product is fully labeled for any presence of gluten or gluten containing ingredients. We find that this statement is much easier than our trying to maintain a gluten free product list.

I use Oretga all the time with no issue. Could you be reacting to something else? Hope you feel better soon.

Was your beef freshly ground at the butchers? If it was, there's a chance for CC there. Many butchers have bread crumbs that they use to season roasts and stuff.

    • Toblerone
      I don't eat chocolate often, but I have never had a gluten reaction to Toblerone. I trust it to be gluten-free.
    • So I've been glutened....
      I am so sorry for how your feeling.  I can sympathize; over time I notice I couldn't have any type of gluten free products.  I read that since you don't have villi in your small intestines you have no defenses, meaning even the tiniest bit of exposure causes a flare up.  I even have to be careful when I purchase products by reading the labels to ensure it says manufactured by a nut, soy, milk and wheat free facility.  Be very careful, unfortunately
    • Symptoms despite strict gluten-free -- new here
      I have been reading a lot about leak gut syndrome which is new to the medical community in the sense that they don't know how to manage it.  If (you are female) make sure to do a yearly pap and uterine check to ensure there is no issues there.  If you are not a female then definitely confirm with an endoscopy if your small intestines are still damaged.  I am looking into doing the leaky gut diet to see if it will help, the book I am reading is "Eat Dirt" by Dr Josh Axe.  Especially since I notice anytime I am exposed to gluten by accident my symptoms are worse each and every time.  I know get severe back and rib cage pain, with bloating, gurgling and diarrhea with severe nausea.  I am willing to try anything and I am now reading this book and applying the diet to see if I can heal my intestinal lining.

      Ok so I had my colonoscopy & endoscopy last Thursday. Don't get results until July 13th as GI is on vacation. I've had bad pain in my lower left abdomen that wraps around to my lower back as well for the past 4 days..even hurts to touch lightly. Went back to the ER & they did an ultrasound & CT scan. The Doctor said that I have "prominent" lymph nodes in the area that is painful as well as thickening & inflammation of my Sigmond colon? Um ok what is that all about? Kind of freaking out over the whole swollen lymph nodes thing. Has anyone ever dealt with this before? 😒

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
