I didn't even look, having started trusting single-spice packages. I need to remember that that's only McCormick. Oh well. I'll be throwing out a third of a jar; this means of course that I ate two-thirds of it. Oops!

The cinnemon I have here must be older? It doesn't list any ingredients. It's from Aldi.

I guess we can't let our gaurd down..ever? Good thing you caught it!

I glutened myself on Thursday night with spices when I was making a curry. Just starting to feel better today. I'm really annoyed as I thought I had it all down to a fine art. Oh well, won't make that mistake again.

I like to purchase whole cinnamon quills and grind/grate myself. Same with nutmeg and tons of others. Better flavour, anyway. Not in bulk, of course. :)

It must be a pretty new labeling (this year); I certainly checked the label before I started buying Aldi cinnamon, and as you say, it didn't say anything like this before.

Oh darn! So sorry. Yes, it's really hard working with spices. Wishing you better luck in the future.

I just found out that North American cinnamon isn't cinnamon. Don't know if they'll allow this link; if not, look up cassia on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cinnamomum_aromaticum Now I want the Sri Lankan stuff!

I only get the authentic Sri Lankan stuff - there is a huge difference in flavour. Regular ground cinnamon? Meh. The real thing? WOW!

Zippy! I'm kind of hoping this is the sweet spice I like so much in pho. But that's probably rock sugar.:)

It may be a CYA statement the manufacturer has added to the label like so many do. But if you already ate two-thirds of it, have you been feeling ill? If not, I see no reason to throw it out unless you absolutely want to replace it with something else.

I get very little immediate effect when I ingest gluten. Usually a case of the trots about 5 in the morning, but little else. Better safe than sorry, I figure.

The top brands I buy from and trust McCormick and Spice Islands. I check the ingredients none the less to be safe, I also found Kroger spices are often safe as well.

I was a huge fan of Penzey's spices before my diagnosis and called the company almost in tears at the thought that I'd have to throw away my entire cabinet of spices. They told me that all their spices and blends (their chili and taco blends are huge favorites in my house!) are gluten free. In fact, the only items they said they offer that aren't gluten free are their soup bases which come from a different manufacturer. I did replace all my baking spices and any that I'd used with recipes that I knew included flour but just cleaned all the bottles on the rest and haven't had a problem.

Neat! I'll look up Penzey's.

Checking the ingredients every time is wise; I wish I had.

Also Aldi ground cumin, dammit. There are people who think that when Aldi changes one of its imaginary brand names, that means they also changed suppliers. I was never one of those people, before. But I think both of the ones reading "may contain milk, wheat, soy" are Stonemill Essentials rather than Spice Club. Need to clean that stonemill, I'm thinking.

Dammit. As somebody notes, probably just CYA, but better safe than sorry, certainly.

    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".
