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 fluffy assassin? My cat, Amelia. Just fluffy, really.
About '02, lactose intolerance hit. Quit gluten in late '07. Immediately had better energy, less anxiety.
By '09, no lactose intolerance, but I gave up dairy 7/18/09 anyway (and in August soy). Restarted dairy, Nov' '10; stopped for good, December.
9/12/09 Wound up in the emergency room with what turned out to be hypothyroid symptoms. Resolved quickly when I got my iodine levels up. If you're on a whole foods diet, make sure you get enough iodine. Believe me!

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....omum_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.

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