Mccormick's Chili Powder ?
0

9 posts in this topic

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).

    • Most New Celiac Patients Show Normal Bone Density
      Some doctors recommend that patients with newly diagnosed celiac disease get scanned for bone density. Several researchers recently set out to assess the bone density results in a cohort of patients with celiac disease. View the full article
    • Kidney disease question
      Hi all,   I don't know whether kidney disease is celiac related or not but hopefully someone here can advise.
      I recently had a general blood test as I'd been feeling unwell. I think I've been glutened tbh but I also felt lethargic and out of sorts. I asked for thyroid and other levels to be checked. Frustratingly they didnt run the TTG - something I'm really down about. Anyway, The doctor looked at my test results and told me (via the receptionist) there was nothing to worry about. Given past experiences I requested a paper copy of the results and I found the following under the renal profile section:

      Renal profile 142 (135-145)
      Serum Sodium 4.7 (3.5 5.3)
      Serum potassium 5.5 (2.5 - 7.5)
      Serum urea 93 (62 - 120)
      Serum creatinine 93 (62 - 120)
      GFR 77ml/min/1.73m^2 - STAGE 2: CKD only if other evidence of renal damage

      The doctor is presumably happy with this but I'm a little concerned. Should I ask for a doctors appointment and perhaps a urine test? Is the GFR result on its own not sufficient reason to investigate further? 
      Many thanks for any advice you can offer

      Matt

      So I just got diagnosed with celiacs and I felt like after all the testing and stuff I would finally get the information my fiancé and I so badly needed about what is wrong with me, but the doctor came in the room at our appt and spent about 15 minutes with us talking a little bit about cross contamination, then said I need to avoid gluten like i would arsenic then sent us on our way! So I guess I am looking for some good tips and information about what is really wrong with me! I know own it's an auto immune disease. I just feel scares because I am so uneducated about it and it's such a big change. I just want to know what to do and do it right so I feel better!

      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.
