Thank you for taking the time to contact us. We appreciate your

interest in our Zatarain's Products and welcome the opportunity to be of

assistance to you.

We are aware of special allergies and intolerances to certain

ingredients such as the following:

Peanuts Fish Soy proteins Sulfites

Tree nuts Eggs Wheat proteins Yellow No. 5 & 6

Shellfish Milk Red Pepper

As a responsible food company, Zatarain's follows the U.S. Food Drug &

Cosmetic Act regulations to ensure consumer safety concerning food

allergens. We declare these ingredients on our label in the ingredient

statement. Federal regulations require us to list sulfites if they are

over 10 parts per million, so we use that as our label declaration limit.

Because we are constantly improving our products, we do not offer a

list of our products that do not currently contain glutens. We encourage

you to read the ingredient statement on your package at the time of

purchase to ensure accurate, up to date information.

In addition, we follow good manufacturing practices at our plants. Our

employees are trained in the importance of correct labeling and the

necessity of performing thorough equipment wash-downs to eliminate

cross-contact of ingredients.

Although we cannot guarantee our products to be 100% free of allergens

not listed on the label, we want you to know that we take this

situation seriously and have taken extra precautions to eliminate the

possibility of mislabeling or cross-contact.

We invite you to sign up from our website, www.zatarain.com, to receive

our online newsletter and be the first to know what's new on our site,

including insider cooking tips and more.

If we can be of further assistance, please call us at 1-877-837-3796,

Monday through Friday, 9:30AM to 5PM Eastern Time. If you wish to

respond to this note by e-mail, please include your name and e-mail address.

We hope to have the continued pleasure of serving you.

Thanks for posting. I contacted them before and got the same response. Personally, I do not feel comfortable eating their foods because they state 'wheat proteins', but do not comment on gluten specifically. Does their statement mean that if their is a protein from rye or barley they may not list it?

This is one thing that I am really not clear on. I have received replies from several companies that refer to wheat, but not necessarily gluten. Does anyone have any concrete information on this?




- Dx by Derm with DH in Oct 2005 - both by bloodwork and skin biopsy.

- Dx with celiac disease in Nov 2005 by biopsy of small intestine.

- gluten-free since Oct 2005

I have had mixed feelings about them too. I seem to have a reaction to their food. But, I guess I thought it was their MSG that I was reacting to. Who knows. I make jambalaya alot of times from scratch without any reactions. That just seems safest sometimes
