I rarely use seaoning packets, and I definitely avoid them after starting my gluten-free diet. However, I have a large collection of dried herbs in my kitchen. Are these safe? How do I know they're safe? (I am however aware that I should be cautious in particular about ground herbs.)

As I said, I have such a large collection that I hate the idea of having to throw them out! And besides that, I do not have the money to replace them all at once! :o

Other than Mccormics, is there another cheaper brand known for strictly labeling their containers? I seem to have a lot of "Kroger" brand herbs, anyone know anything about those?

Thanks guys! This forum has been great!

Kroger, being the cutting edge 21st century guys they are, provides a mailing address:

To contact Kroger Manufacturing please write us at:

The Kroger Co.

Manufacturing Division

1014 Vine St.

Cincinnati, OH 45202

(found here: http://www.thekrogerco.com/operations/oper...ufacturing.htm)

You might want to check the packages to see whether they say "Manufactured & distributed by Kroger," "Manufactured for Kroger," or "Distributed by Kroger." If it's the first of these, you're likely to get more help from the people at the mailing address above.

Here's the gluten-free list from Kroger: http://www.kroger.com/SiteCollectionDocume.../GlutenList.pdf

No spices or herbs on there, but many people have commented that the list is very incomplete, so their exclusion doesn't necessarily mean that your herbs have gluten.

This http://www.kroger.com/SiteCollectionDocume...%20Products.pdf

indicates that single-ingredient spices (presumably they also mean herbs) are gluten free. Unfortunately, nearly all the other information in the document is out-of-date or wrong, but that doesn't necessarily mean everything in the document is wrong.

Hope this helps a little.
