Spices And Seasonings

Recommended Posts

I am new to eating gluten free and was wondering if anyone had advice on which spices and seasonings are safe to eat. Any help would be great. Thanks

Hi Linds--welcome :)

I use McCormick spices. I have spoken to them by phone, and they will clearly list any gluten on the label, so all you need to do is read. Their Pure Vanilla Extract is also safe for us.

If there's anything else we can answer for you, don't hesitate to ask!

All Tex Joy brand spices are gluten free. They sell in Southeast Texas/Southwest Louisiana in the grocery stores, but also have them where you can buy them online at their website www.texjoy.com. They are located in my hometown, and were super nice in their reply to my query as to their gluten free status. They even posted on their website that they are all gluten free after I asked. The only things they package in their facility are spices and cofee. They swore that they never ever have gluten, barley, rye or oats in their facility. My spice cabinet is probably 90% Tex Joy products, but that was before going gluten free too.

I sent a number of emails out on spices. A few replies, it may be worth to check again as these were about 6 months ago.

Spice Hunter : (quoted reply)

"

Our spices and spice blends are gluten free. However, some of our box and

cup products do contain gluten. These products are made using common

processing equipment, which is cleaned thoroughly between uses. Because of

shared equipment we cannot guarantee that all traces of gluten are removed,

therefore, we do not claim that any of our cup & box products are "gluten

free".

Please feel free to contact us if you have any other questions.

END FROM WORD DOC

Tones/Spice Islands/Durkee also stated that all their plain spices are gluten free and they are 100% spices, but blends may contain other things.

Sure cross contaimination could be an issue. But for the big "spice only" companies, I find it hard to even imagine a blend or something with flour in it.

Nice to know, though it would be nice if they specified the kind of alcohol they use for the extracts. I found a brand called Spicery Shoppe that is all-natural, no alcohol, and no sugars either :)
