If it was wheat starch it would have to be listed on the ingredient list.  Chances are you will be okay. What brand was it?

Well if you want to play it safe, Spicely Organic has gluten free spices, Big Axe Spice has some nice "everything" blends. I have tried two others that are supposed to be safe but found everything they made so salty I could not eat it.

I have problems with corn so I have to be aware of that when shopping for spices and gluten-free baking products as Raven pointed out.

I use Badia which states certified gluten-free

As for encouragement drink lots of water and rest. A nice soak in tub sometimes is soothing. I hope it passes soon. If you find out it is gluten-free after all ask about corn in product, on the line, or facility .

May your symptoms be minimal and pass fast 

best wishes

edit: it was Karen not Raven who mentioned corn  starch

my bad entirely

I asked for their two products yesterday,onion and garlic.Onion powder's package doesnt have starch or wheat on ingredient list but garlic powder has corn starch . I dont have any intolerance to corn by the way.

They told me they add starch to two of their products so they are not gluten free. I dont understand why they would put on corn starch on list if it contains wheat starch.I sent another mail to them.

 I had nausea last night and this morning but im not sure if it is because of powder or something else.

Either the person answering the phone or email is an  idiot or the company is failing to follow even the basic labeling laws.  Even without the Gluten labeling laws in the US, Canada, etc- there are laws that they can't label something as x but use y instead.  

 

I am betting

Where are you buying this product?  Your previous posting indicated that you are not in the USA.  Labeling laws can be different depending on where you live.  

In any case, as a newly diagnosed celiac or NCGI, you should avoid foods processed foods until you feel better.  Use fresh onions for now.  

Recovery from celiac disease takes time.  You can have good days and bad days.  I hope that your good days soon outpace the bad!

Could possibly be a cross-reaction to the corn starch, but if you're not sensitive to corn it shouldn't be an issue.  Your nausea may be from something else entirely, and it could be somatic...you're expecting a reaction and your body is kindly obliging.  We tend to blame every little blip on celiac, which is natural, until we learn over time what is and isn't a gluten reaction.

In the meantime, drink plenty of water and get some rest.  If you experience brain fog like I do, try a little extra vitamin B-12.

Did you end up reacting?

No luckily i didn't :) I had nausea probably caused by eating more than I used to eat the day before. And the company sent me another email saying that it contains CORN GLUTEN ,not wheat gluten.
