Curry Powder

I LOVE curry, but I have read several times that curry powders are a cause for concern. I use Mccormick's red curry powder. I called the company, and they said that there is no worries about gluten in their seasonings. It is gluten-free! HOwever, one of the sites that I found says specifically that Mccormicks curry powder is NOT gluten-free! Im so confused. Does anyone know?????

If you like curry and know of a curry that is safe....I have a great recipe..! :rolleyes:

Laura,

I have had no problems using The Spice Hunter brand East Indian Hot Curry powder. If there were even traces of gluten in it, my breastfeeding baby's eczema would flare up and start spreading, but it hasn't after any time I have made curried dishes. I also REALLY love the flavor (and it doesn't have any fenugreek, which I just plain can't stand)! I buy it at my local Whole Foods Market, but regular grocery stores in my area don't seem to carry it. I hope you can find some, and that you enjoy it as much as I do!

FYI I contacted Frontier Coop regarding their curry powder; they responded:

Good Morning,

Thank you for your inquiry. Frontier is not an allergen free facility, thus

we do not state that any of our products are allergen free. We follow

strict GMPs (Good Manufacturing Practices) to minimize the potential for

cross-contamination, but do not test for the presence of allergens in our

final products.

Gluten is present in our facility, so we are not able to state positively

that our products are gluten-free. We do have full ingredient disclosure on

our products.

If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Have a

great day!

I'm playing it safe, so I'll skip this one and maybe try one of the ones mentioned above...

anyone know of other brands of gluten-free curry powder?

McCormick clearly lists gluten if it's present. They are a very dependable company. They are not lying to you.

In addition, I think the warning about curry powder is that it might have wheat mixed in. If it does, in the U.S. the wheat must be listed. To be honest, I can't remember ever finding a curry powder with gluten.

Frontier is merely doing full disclosure. NO facility that has gluten inside can absolutely guarantee gluten-free.

Curry powder usually contains turmeric and turmeric can cause false positive results with what I think is the most commonly used test for gluten. I ran a test with it. It turns the whole solution a dark red, and the color of the positive indicator is around that same color. That might be why that one site said it contains gluten.
