Mccormicks Paprika

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I've heard some people have been glutened by paprika. So I bought McCormicks after talking to them and finding out they are gluten free. Okay so we used it on our food and within the hour i was feeling sick. the next day the diarrhea started and i know it could have been something else but the timing is just too perfect..I'm very nervous now on what's okay to eat....are we sure McCormicks paprika is okay? they said it was...but...i dunno. I don't think i have a nightshade issue because i eat that stuff all the time with no issues. I've been drinking milk again for over a month and we fine...so i doubt it's dairy but..what's the deal? :(

McCormick's has a very good gluten policy. I don't think your paprika had gluten.

You could be intolerant of a few different foods &/or groups of foods. It can be very difficult to pinpoint while trying to track it to one item. If I'm not mistaken I read another post from earlier this week that you had other flu like symptoms...can't remember if diarrhea was one of your symptoms. While your digestive system is healing it is often hard to digest more than gluten -- sounds like you are aware of possible other groups, but have you tried eating very simple whole foods, rather than processed foods or eliminating an entire group (dairy, nightshades, grain, legumes, etc) for a period of time?

It is best to remove all possible food intolerances at one time for at least two weeks before adding items back one at a time - not more often then one item every three days. This is very tough - so if you are not quite ready to go with full elimination, I'd suggest you try removing all nightshades for two weeks - tomato, potato (sweet potato okay), ALL peppers except peppercorns (black/white pepper okay), eggplant - then trial each item by whole food (ie sliced tomato rather than tomato sauce, bell pepper rather than paprika).

Hope you are feeling better very soon :)

Thanks. I had actually tried this with nightshades and milk for a while and reintroduced both and seemed to be fine. Then suddenly this happened. But it wasn't happening before.

I ate simply potatoes when I was sick ..with ketchup and was fine...only thing my tummy really went for...and today fries and i'm okay so i'm guessing it's not nightshades?

McCormick is one of the brands that's very good about labeling. If they say something is gluten-free I trust it.

That being said, when my gut was very inflamed when first Dxed I couldn't tolerate paprika. I had to give up using seasoning salt because of it. I switched to just plain salt on meats, etc.

I was fine with potatoes and tomatoes, but paprika got me. :blink:

I just recently tried it again and I'm fine with it. It's one of those mysterious things that happens while healing. Maybe take it out of your diet and try it again later?

Wendy, I couldn't make any sense out of the things that bothered me either. At two months, no, you are probably not healed yet. When I was two months in the lost of foods that bothered me was huge. Even iceburg lettuce gave me D. Yet I could spice up my rice with rosemary or sage and had no problems.

The best advice I could give you is to stick to whole foods, get rid of the processed foods, avoid most spices, and perhaps even go organic for a while. Eventually you will get most of these foods back, but until you heal, the plainer and blander, the better.

There was also only about 1 teaspoon of paprika put in this tomato sauce used on a full schar pizza crust and I had half and hubby had half...would that be enough?I mean...there were 2 cans of tomato..1 tomato sauce and 1 tomato paste...and there is still stuff left over...so we're talking about very very very little paprika!
