All single ingredient herbs/spices are gluten free. Others have posted that McCormic will disclose gluten. I did not replace my herbs/spices but I knew they did not have any contamination (ie use measuring spoons in flour/gluten ingredients and then use them in the spice/herb containers). I did replace my powdered, brown and regular sugar since I would use the same measuring cups in those after measuring flour. You need to read lables on blends mixes because some of them can have gluten. Check your bullion also.

i am feeling overwhelmed with all of the details of cross contamination my gastro specialist said to start a diet with no dairy, breads, wheats, and to stay with just meats,fish,poultries, fruits and veggies until things clear up a little then to gradually add things in later. do i need to use my own cooking utensils? and is there gluten in peanut butter

If you are gluten free it is wheat, rye, and barley to avoid. Anything with malt in it is off limits too (made from barley). Some people can eat certified gluten free oats, but I am one who reacts very badly to it so I don't eat them at all. I did replace my wooden cutting board, wooden utensils, baking stone and got a small cheep 2 slice toaster just for myself. I did not replace my cookware as it was in pretty good shape and not teflon (I have caflon cookware). I still use all of my glassware and plastic containers(as long as they are in good condition). There is still some of my bakewear that I am debating on replacing. We do have some desiginated utensils for gluten free and gluten food. I eat smuckers natural peanut butter. I don't know what other ones are safe. Hopefully someone else can chime in. You may need to replace any condiments that may have been double dipped after touching ie bread. It's easier to use squirt bottles and have your own butter or train everyone in your household how to not contaminate shared things. For example I keep my own butter container, but we share the peanut butter. My husband will spoon out what he wants and then uses an knife to spread it; never touching the spoon on the bread.
