Does anyone know if La Costena chipotle peppers in adobo sauce are gluten free? The suspicious ingredient is "spices." Everything else looks fine.

So glad you survived. :) I've used them and never had any problems. If you have some left over which I always do, they freeze nicely. I freeze them in an ice cube tray and the amount is usually just right for most recipes.

This brand of Chipotles is NOT gluten free.  I contacted the manufacturer and they confirmed that they are not gluten free.  She suspicious ingredients are spices AND vinegar.  Vinegar is often made from grain, so it cannot be assumed that vinegar is safe.  You must have gotten lucky if this didn't make you sick.  I wouldn't chance it again.  ;)

I use them all the time - well... As much as I can.

Spices cannot, legally, hide a grain. Vinegar, except " malt vinegar" , is not a concern. Obviously they don't know what is gluten or they are being advised to make a CYA statement because they don't test for gluten. I don't have a link to the US rule about spices but you could google it. I know it's been linked to on c.com many times.

Is vinegar safe for those with celiac disease?

Vinegar is a solution made of acetic acid and flavoring materials such as apples, grapes, grain and molasses. For example, cider vinegar is made from apple juice; malt vinegar is made from barley malt, Balsamic vinegar is made from grapes.

Distilled vinegars (including vinegars in foods and condiments) are gluten-free because the distillation process filters out the large gluten proteins so they do not pass through to the end product making the finished liquid gluten free.

Patients with celiac disease should not be concerned about distilled white vinegar or foods such as pickles, which may contain it. The exception to this rule is malt vinegar, which is not distilled, and therefore is not safe to consume.

Vinegar as defined by the US Food & Drug Administration:

Vinegar, Cider Vinegar, Apple Vinegar: made from juice of apples

Wine Vinegar, Grape Vinegar: made from juice of grapes

Malt Vinegar: infusion of barley malt or cereals that have been converted to malt

Spirit Vinegar, Distilled Vinegar, Grain Vinegar: dilute distilled alcohol

    • Good to know, I'm allergic to sulfa as well but have taken doxycycline for a different reason without problems. I'll be storing this idea for future reference....hopefully unneeded !
    • i hope you tipped that waitress well????
    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
