July 2012 Barbour's Gluten List

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Barbour's is one of the spice brands I can get in most stores where I live, and I have a bunch, so I sent them a quick email. This is response I got about all their products, not just spices. Note: These are their products that MAY contain gluten, not the gluten-free ones.

Thank you for your request for information on gluten-free products. In response to

your inquiry, we list below products which we believe may contain gluten from wheat,

rye, barley, oats, malt, hydrolyzed vegetable or plant protein, modified wheat or other

food starch. Please be advised that this list is based upon our best information today.

However, our formulations are occasionally subject to change and we encourage you to

read all labels before using any food product.

The following products may contain gluten:

Barbours Pure Dry Mustard

Barbours Pepper Medley

Barbours Barbecue Spice

Barbours Pickling Spice

Barbours Egg Roll Spice

Barbours Potato Seasoning

Barbours Curry Powder

Barbours East Indian Curry Powder

Acadia Baking Powder

Barbours Montreal Steak Spice

Ryan Duffy Steak Spice

Barbours Five Spice Mix

Barbours Mixed Spice

Pop N Top Popcorn Seasonings

Barbours Seasoned and Unseasoned Meat Tenderizers

Any extract that uses a malt extractive flavour base

Please note that the majority of peanut butter formulas we produce have a stabilizer

which contains cotton seed oil, rapeseed oil and soy oil. It should be noted that

we also produce an all-natural peanut butter that contains just peanuts and no

stabilizer. Also, King Cole and Morse

There it is - the standard CYA statement.

Barbours Pure Dry Mustard

Well, how about that. Mustard is not a source of gluten, but their "Pure" Dry Mustard may contain gluten. I guess it isn't pure after all. I wonder what other misrepresentations are in that message.

Right, so if a label they have has an ingredient that has gluten or 'may contain gluten', I will not buy it. And I will get a new list from them every so often. It's a pain, but there's assurance there. Obviously over time a product can change. This is true for everything ever.

I know what you're getting at, and there is a world of difference in telling me what could contain gluten and saying that a product may change in the future, versus bandying words around trying to get me to feel safe about buying a product, while specfically warning me that that same product may contain gluten.

Most importantly, if I say Barbours cinnamon is gluten free, I am not making a claim that Barbour's themselves hasn't made.

Yep, just like Kraft, Unilever, pharmacutical companies and so on and so on.

Does anyone else think it's ironic and funny that the potato seasoning may contain gluten.

Ok, that might be my twisted sense of humor but yea.... :lol:

Thanks for the updated list :)
