What About Pepper?

Recommended Posts

Is standard ground pepper OK? If I go into a random restaraunt should I be wary of the pepper in the pepper shaker? If pepper is a concern, what type should I buy?

I'm on a spice witch-hunt... Thanks!

I have never had an issue with ground black pepper. However, I do not use it much nor do I eat out alot. I have never looked into it because it was never a big concern. I use McCormick spices at home, they will clearly label.

I stear clear of the salt and pepper shakers in restaurants. Though the actual spices themselves may be gluten free, who knows how many times they've been dipped in pasta or gravy since they were washed last. I doubt that they are washed every night. Plus, chances are they ARE wiped down every night with the same rag that is used to wipe up crumbs and such. Maybe I'm being overly cautious, but I rarely get glutened and I'm pretty sensitive. For in my home, I usually use McCormick spices, including pepper. I like their disposable black peppercorn grinder. :)
