The label says several safe ingredients, then "spices". I know that mixed "spices" can be a red flag, but then I keep hearing McCormick's is safe. So, What is the verdict on McCormics "spices" as an ingredient in one of their bottled spices? It is the same size/shape as all my pure spices from McCormics in the little glass bottles.

Chili is in the crock pot waiting for some oomph for tomorrow's lunch time guests.

Thanks all you experienced Celiac's.


Oh! and SIL bought a gluten free apple pie for tomorrow from a speciality bakery near her house! I LOVE pie and have not had it in a year. Think she will let me eat it all myself? Maybe no one else will like it. A girl can dream....

Couldn't find anything on the "spices" McCormick's website, but here is another post about their chili powder.

and McCormick's is good about listing wheat...not sure about gluten.

McCormick will clearly disclose by name any gluten grain present. If you don't see any of the words "wheat," "rye," "barley," or "oats" then none of them are present in the product. :)

I use to use McCormick's Chili Powder all the time when my husband and I made Tacos yummmm. The only reason I stopped using it was b/c I went Nightshade Free. I never had a problem though gluten wise with the Chili Powder.

McCormick's Chili Powder is safe....I use it all the time. McCormick's Chili Seasoning is different, and I've heard it may be problematic.

If you go to their website, you can click on contact us, then they have a list of FAQs. They have a thing about gluten about 5 or 6 questions down. I looked to check on their fajita mix that I am going to have tonight! :) I was wondering specifically about maltodextrin since it has ''malt'' in it, but I read that in the US its almost always made from corn or rice.

If it is made from a gluten grain, it will be labeled as such. It is rarely derived from wheat, and in that case it must be labeled either as "wheat maltodextrin" or "maltodextrin (wheat)." If you see the single word "maltodextrin" it is not a source of gluten.

thank you so much for your posts. The chili was great and I'm back to using it again. (I had it on my suspect list after a couple bad reactions, but I later put the cc'ed corn chips at the top of that list).
