Hubby and I made tacos with the Low Sodium Old El Paso Taco Seasoning Mix and I got sick as a dog. (Pretty sure it was the seasoning b/c I tried eating just the meat again and sure enough - sick for a second day.) !!! I had checked their website and some reviews of the product and everyone said it was gluten free. Tho when I searched *this* site, someone warned against the mix and said to use the bottle sauce - but didn't give a reason. Is there something I was missing in the ingredients?
Here they are for reference:
Maltodextrin, chili pepper, salt, onion powder, spice, MSG, modified corn starch, garlic powder, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, silicon dioxide & ethoxyquin
Ewww...MSG and partially hydrogenated anything. I hate reading ingredients. Anyway, I'm a little confused. Maybe it's the MSG? But I've never noticed a problem with anything else... By the way, we used the bottle sauce this past weekend and were fine. YAY! Hubby makes GREAT steak tacos!
We're going to stick with the bottle sauce from now on, but I'd still like to know what it was that made me sick! Any thoughts?
Modified cornstarch is NOT gluten free!
