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
