Curry Powder
0

7 posts in this topic

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.

    • Over the past month or so, I have been have a fuzzy feeling in my left ear canal. The best I can describe is it feels like there is a bug in my ear, but when ear is checked, no bug but the fuzzy stays.  Any ideas?  Or is this one of those strange neurological symptoms from gluten?  Please don't tell me you need to get ti checked out, because all the doctors will say is "There's nothing wrong, everything's normal." BLAH!
    • Breakfast on the go is always trickiest for me - I go with a whole fruit - banana, apple - or a yogurt, or a small bag of nuts.  Occasionally, I have a couple of hardboiled eggs at my local pret a manger.  Much prefer breakfast at home, where I can make myself an egg and cheese sandwich with avocado on gluten free toast.  Or cereal ;-)
    • thanks for your input, the reason I do the blood test is because I found out my duagther has it recently and she carry dq2 gene,so must be from my husband or me...im in the process waiting for my genetic test back,,by the way,I do have lots of celiac symptom,so it could be gluten sensitiive you said,thanks again.  
    • No I'm in the UK, from what I've been told that's a good thing for gluten labeling and standards compliance. What you and everyone else on here says makes me sense than what the doctors are saying (a confused message at best is what they're giving me, each one with a slightly different version of it). My referral letter is in the post so on theory appointment may not be that far away. I have a load of my favourite Quorn stuff (non-gluten-free version) in the freezer so perhaps using that up may be a good way to proceed for now. I'm out at the moment and torn whether to try chips from a café, in the strict gluten-free future would probably be a no-no but in current situation probably not so bad...
    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
