I have become very good a reading the sides of cans, packages, etc. and I have come to at least one conclusion.

[SIZE=14][COLOR=red]IT SHOULD BE ILLEGAL TO MAKE PRINT THAT SMALL!!!


Seriously, some of it is hard to read, but that is not my question. How do you deal with the term "spices"? That is just one of the things I have been wondering about.

It would be a hugh help for me to see exactly what made me sick when I do get ahold of gluten, or if it is an ingredient or just what it was that made me sick. My wife is really good too at finding gluten, or bad ingredients. She does miss one on occasion though.

I have been finding more and more things that I need to avoid. Chili is one of my favorites that I have found that contains wheat flour. My absolute favorite chili beans have wheat flour. :(

Steak-N-Shake chili appears to be safe. No wheat flour, straight forward ingredients, save for the term "spices". So, that is why I asked this question. The more I avoid gluten, the more sick I get if I happen to ingest some. It is good to be feeling better, but, boy, the effects of gluten are becomeing far worse as time goes by.

Thanks for all your assistance.

Hi there!

If the label says "spices", the safest bet is to call the company, because many mixed spices (ie, "mexican blend", etc) have wheat fillers. I've been avoiding anything I've seen in the cafeteria with that vague ingredient listed.

I wish that the Allergen Labeling Bill would pass more quickly!!!

Good luck,

Yes, me too!

I have noticed that some companies are doing this on their own!
