I just went crazy trying to figure out the "Is 5th Season spice gluten free?" question.  From what I can tell 5th Season was or is made by Han-Dee Pak which is owned by McCormick. (Acquired in 1979 per Wikipedia.)  See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McCormick_%26_Company

 

McCormick claims they list every ingredient on their product labels, so if wheat, barley, rye etc. isn't listed, it's not in there and the spice can be assumed to be gluten free.  See http://celiacdisease.about.com/od/Gluten-Free-Condiments/a/Gluten-free-Spices.htm

 

Evidently 5th Season is "older" McCormick spice that is packaged under the 5th Season Brand because the flavor is not strong enough to be labeled "McCormick." See http://www.infobarrel.com/Gluten-Free_Spices_For_Cooking_Gluten_Free

Great info, di, thanks :)  A lot of spice companies do have their regular brand, a premium line, and then a lower line.  Makes sense to me.

The Spice Agent is a small company located in Branson, MO.  I order all my spices from them.  All spices are ground on site in small amounts to keep them fresh.  Chris, the owner, has assured me that his spices are pure and gluten free, EXCEPT for some of the spice blends.  Chris will be more than happy to share info with you on which blends contain gluten.  He recently made a gluten free taco spice mix for me.  I wanted a spice mix similar to the dry mix envelopes of taco seasoning.

Does the spice agent process their gluten-free spices in the same area and on the same equipment as the gluten containing blends?  That is really important to know.

The Spice Agent doesn't mix the blends himself.  The only blends he makes himself are ones that are specifically requested by a customer, such as my taco seasoning.
