Hey everyone.

I know McCormick spices are safe, but I looked through their entire line at the store the other day and I can't find a quite important spice which I use often, Cayenne Pepper.

Does anyone know a brand that would be gluten free?

I have never used or purchased Cayenne Pepper but I have a book (Gluten-Free Grocery Shopping Guide) that shows gluten free seasoning:

365 Everyday Value, Durkee, Spice Islands and Tones

Always double check though before purchasing the seasoning.

I've seen Cayenne Peppers on Bob's Red Mill site but I do not know if they are gluten free.

GOOD LUCK

I believe I'd heard that single spices are gluten free. Most of the gluten in spices will be in blends, such as lemon pepper or seasoned salt. Cayenne pepper should literally be just ground dried peppers. However, I havent called any companies.

You should be able to get whole dry cayenne at Asian or Hispanic markets. The taste is much better than the bottled spices,

and hotter!

I have McCormick's cayenne pepper, so perhaps they were just sold out or you can find it at another grocer.

Ive looked at two so far and can't find it here, but Ill keep trying different stores!

Its good to know mCcormick makes it. I havent seen it in the spice islands brand too.

I wonder why its so hard to get around here.

i've used spice island, and just recently bought walmart's brand, with no problems. i don't think walmart's says gluten-free or not, but like dbmamaz said, i've always been under the assumption that most spices alone are gluten-free. never had any problems.
