What About "spices"

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hopefully, someone more knowledgeable than I (and a better speller) will add to this post. From what I have read the word spice could indicate gluten. However, with the new labeling laws it would have to state if it at least had wheat (the law does not cover gluten, just wheat). Depending on the product it may be best to contact the company or look online.

in theory, "spices", "natural spices", and the like *could* contain gluten. I haven't found much that does, but it's one of those ingredients you call on to verify.

It used to be common to use wheat starch to bind mixed spices together. Or, for cheaper spices to go farther as a filler. That practice is disappearing thank heaven. But unless you are confident that the company will state the offending ingredient you should call to varify that the spices are in fact gluten free. And in this case the law that makes wheat an ingredient that must be stated, it should help. I don't think any of the heavier grains such as barley or rye was ever used to bind spices.

I would contact the company just to be safe. Is there a product in particular that you are concerned about? Maybe some of us can tell you if the product is safe.

tonight it was rosarita brand enchilada sauce---but i saw on the label that it is from con-agra foods. they are supposed to say if they have wheat----hopefully the spices in it were ok. now i have seen some other brands that people have said are safe----i'm not loyal to, nor do i prefer any certain brand, so i can find something else---i was just in a hurry tonight.

I am always cautious when I see that because some of my spices had wheat in them. I always check on that stuff.
