Penzey's Spices

20 September 2004 - 05:49 AM

Penzey's has come out with two new Taco Seasonings, Bold and Chicken. I just called and they are both gluten-free. Their Original Taco Seasoning, however, is still the only one they carry that is not gluten-free.
I love these spices. They are great quality and very good prices. If you order in larger quantities, the prices are even better.

I had specifically e-mailed them about their Cajun seasoning and they told me it was gluten-free, and sent me a gluten-free list. I wrote back and asked them why the Cajun seasoning wasn't on the gluten-free list. This was their response. They were very prompt in their responses. So, just because a blend is not on this list does not mean that it's not gluten-free. Check with them.


Our Gluten Free List is a basic list. Many of our blends are gluten free but are not on the list because we prefer to check them on a case by case basis. Mostly what is on our list is just the single spices. We do not want to have dated lists in circulation in case any of our blends would change in their gluten status. All of our Cajun Seasonings are gluten free.

Plastic Containers

02 August 2004 - 11:07 AM

I know that most here take any threat of cross-contamination very seriously, as do I. However, I find it very had to believe that any serious contamination can occur from storing food in plastic containers which may have previously been used to hold pasta or such. Personally, I always wash my plastic in the dishwasher between uses. Do I really need to be concerned about storing non-gluten-free food in a container that once held pasta or using a plastic colander for berries that once strained pasta? Please don't totally beat me up over this, just tell me if you have had an episode of cross-contamination illness from this. I am especially interested in hearing from those who are super-sensitive and would get a physical reaction from this source. I am less than 1 month gluten-free and am still trying to get a handle!
Thanks!

Ireland

23 July 2004 - 08:57 AM

I am going to Ireland in February and am going to be very sad if I can't have fish and chips. . . Since Celiac is so commonly diagnosed and understood there, does anyone know if the restaurants are gluten-free-friendly? I am mainly concerned because we really enjoy the smaller towns and that's where I'd be most worried about being acommodated.
Anyone from Ireland out there? Thanks!
