McCormick skillet sauces

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband bought some McCormick's skillet sauce on Sunday and it says it's certified gluten free. We always use the gluten free seasoning and I've never had an issue. I've just noticed the last couple days that my tummy has been kinda funny and I can't really think of anything that I've eaten that would have caused it, so it may very well not be gluten. But I went to their website and checked out the ingredients and it lists worscestshire sauce as an ingredient. It also lists the ingredients in that and I don't see any malt - just distilled vinegar. But I haven't eaten worscestshire sauce since I was diagnosed because I thought it wasn't safe. But I trust McCormick and know they have a good reputation. Thoughts? Oh, and here's the link to the product.

McCormik is not the safest bet. I know they had some of their spices end up with gluten on the gluten free watchdog report a few years ago. I use Spicely Organics for spices as they actually batch test them and and gluten-free certify them. As for sauces I prefer fronterra over them. I even test them with strips to make sure before I use each bag (call me paranoid)

On my thoughts it could the yeast extract, sauce, caramel color or something else your having a reaction to. Or something else like if you wrapped them in anything or your meat....OR it could be something else entirely.

The product is certified gluten free, but that does not mean you are not reacting to all the extra junk added to it.  What did our grandmother's use to make fajitas?  They seasoned with real herbs and spices usually grown in their local markets in in their backyard.  Time to plant some onions and peppers!  

Save this product for later and test it again when you feel well.

That's odd. When I was diagnosed I was told by several people on here, along with multiple online articles that said that mccormicks is safe. And I've never reacted to them before. It's actually the only brand I use.

I don't Usually use the super processed stuff, which this is. I use the spices or the gluten free spice mixes. I assume maybe something just didn't set well but I doubt it's gluten because I believe they're reputable. My husband doesn't have celiac and said his tummy is weird too, so I doubt it's gluten. I'll call them today to be sure.

Ennis likes to play it safe.  This is a certified gluten-free product and I think he missed that.    Other McCormick spices are not, but members have been using them successfully.
