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.

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
