Tones Spices (Sams Club)

5 posts in this topic

For Christmas I am making home made taco seasoning in a jar to give out so I need a lot of spices, and at Sams Club they have Tones and Spice Island spices, I wasn't satisfied with what was on the label so I wrote them.  Thought I would share, since most of the info about them on here is 8+ years old.  Basically, their straight spices are okay, if the blends/seasonings have wheat in them, they will state it.  Super sensitives may want to avoid it due to their shared equipment, although I have seen a lot of anecdotal evidence of people using it and they are fine.   It tickles me that they reference back to celiac.org :)


"Thanks for contacting ACH Food, Inc.
All spices and herbs are inherently gluten free. Most of the spices we sell are “single spices”, in other words, one spice or herb in one container. These spices may not contain an ingredient list on the label because they are simply 100% spice. Items that are blends of spices (such as Italian seasoning or poultry seasoning), may have an ingredient list that simply states “spices”. This tells you the ingredients are all spices or herbs – nothing else. So, again, these are gluten free.
Some blends do contain gluten, either in the form of flour or from flavorings derived from wheat, rye or barley. These will be noted on the label as containing gluten. Note: some older containers of seasonings may not have this stated. 
Because we produce both gluten free and non gluten free seasonings, we are extremely careful about clean out procedures that take place between running these different products. Our clean out procedures are strictly enforced to minimize any contamination between products packed on the same line. We do not currently certify our seasonings as gluten free by an outside agency. 
If in doubt on the gluten status of any of our products, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Since my celiac friend uses Tone's single spices and herbs in her home and her gluten-free restaurant, I can attest (anecdotally) that they are safe.

    • So I think my daughter is reacting to Dairy?  I only really removed it 100% from her diet for a few weeks and then SLOWLY let her have some because of how difficult it was to find substitutes she liked and she was still reeling with the emotions of being restricted from so many foods.  The smell amts of dairy we allowed had no adverse effect on her (so we thought) and her improvements were still so profound and immense we felt confident that dairy was not an issue. Cue the Cheerios.  We allowed her "oats" again and Cheerios require milk and within a week BOOM all her symptoms were back - difficulty swallowing, hearing issues, dh rash on her scalp, tired, confused. Naturally I accused the oats of being the devil! So that was a week ago that I figured out that oats were evil and have easily eliminated them as Cheerios were the only source. Well here I am and she is NOT getting better.  In fact...she is now having extreme SPD symptoms again.  Things are too loud.  Smells are too strong. Her clothes feel weird, her bedding feels weird.  This all overlapped with the onset of a pretty bad head cold so I tried to be patient.  But a full week later...I think it's the dairy? I have an apt with a Naturopath to test for food sensitivities and I am wondering about having the Dr test her scalp rash? Any thoughts?  Do we assume it's dairy or could a cold on top of an oat cross contamination still be causing problems?
    • Next time just take a box of rat poisoning and extract ONE granule.  Toss it into his food (while he is watching) and give it a good stir.  Hand the food over and see if he is willing to eat it.
    • Gertrude.....just a few comments after reading your posts..........no other disease but Celiac disease will cause a positive on the EMA test.  I have never heard of a false positive on that either.  It is a test that is done by hand and not by a machine because of the way it has to be done, so having a false positive is almost impossible.  Your doctor should have known that.  Many people trip just 1 or 2 tests on the panel and they have Celiac Disease.  With autoimmune testing, you can test 2 different people with Celiac Disease and they can have wildly different test results.  Couple those with a positive gene test and the likelihood of it being Celiac is almost 100%.  The fact that the doc didn't find villus atrophy just means the damage is not extensive enough for them to find.......yet.  I am sure they would prefer you to keep eating gluten until that happens but you do not want to do that.  So.........after you have been gluten-free for awhile, have them run the Celiac panel again to see if your EMA goes to normal, which it should if you eat very gluten free. With positive gene results, positives on your Celiac antibody testing, and positive dietary response, that is a diagnosis!
    • That's great, Gertrude! I'm glad your doctors sound more competent than mine. And that you're starting to feel better.  I haven't had any abdominal or joint pain in the last few days, and I feel like I have more energy for sure. I've been feeling a little off/dizzy but that might be from gluten withdrawal.  Good luck with everything! 
    • By the way, I got my biopsy pathology report and the doctor took 2 biopsies, not the recommended 4-6. It says no "significant villous blunting not seen." I don't know if I should laugh or cry---so frustrating.
