Mccormick Spices?

Recommended Posts

Guest AutumnE

Does anyone react to spices? Im eating mccormick's spices because they are suppose to be corn free and gluten free and yet Im reacting to something. Im soy, gluten, corn, nuts and dairy free. But wouldnt mccormick's list these items?

Thanks

ETA- Im also not tolerating nightshades and lectins.

If those spices have paprika in them, they wouldn't be nightshade-free, as it's derived from chile peppers. All peppers are part of the nightshade family. Paprika

The spices that McCormick makes that have just the spice listed are just that, only the spice. On their mixes they will list all ingredients without hiding any. Personally I just use their 'pure' spices with the exception of their Garam Marsela which is a mixture. I have never had any issues with those.

I, too, have just started using the PLAIN McCormick spices. So far, so good. Maybe it's something else? I have all the same intolerances as you, by the way, and avoid those foods. (Air tastes good, eh?)

I had a friend who was allergic to oregano. Whenever she would have it she wouldn't sleep and be extremely agitated. But thats an herb. I don't know what your using. I would think mold could be a problem in drying certain herbs like sage. It looks and smells like mold to me, but that might just be the nature of the plant.

I wonder if they use pesticides to grow these. I imagine they do because I remember growing them and bugs just love em.

Do you get an allergic reaction or a gluten reaction like cramps, gas, D. I would agree with the blends you might run into a formula they use to keep the spices mixed together and flowing nice.

Sorry I didnt get back sooner, Thanks everyone :)

It was their garlic powder. I usually only buy plain spices from them. Ursula, I didnt know that about paprika thanks for the future information.

Lisa- Air is lovely! :D I thought I was reacting to rice too but I tried it again last week and it was ok! I do not want to give up that.

Gail- It's an odd reaction, Stomach upset and gas but no diarrhea and is gone in a few hours. Im going to stick with fresh garlic cloves and see if that remedies it or to see if I have a problem with garlic.

Ravenwoodglass- Im caffiene free the rest of my life thanks to my glaucoma :angry: no more chocolate ever :(
