I usually buy McCormick. If you get a mix - like a taco seasoning - it could contain wheat. Plain pure spices are just spices.

I am not in Canada but I think that brand is there. I buy other brands, too if that is what the store has.

OK thank you! I was just diagnosed last Tuesday. I was reading that sometimes spices could have gluten in them so I was curious as to which brands were best.I have been getting stomach issues still and I wasn't sure if it was because of the spices I have been using or how long it takes for stomach issues, diarrhea, light headedness, tingling in feet and arms to go away. Doctors didn't tell me anything..just not to eat gluten...(I wish they would have at least told me more than that!)

I understand that, my doctor had the nurse tell me over the phone, and she said "look it up on the internet"  LOL.  I asked if they had anything and they mailed me an photocopied packet of stuff that was vague and not specific.  You are in the right place with us :)  We have some Canadians so hopefully they will chime in on this one.  Just take care to make sure any product information you look up is for the Canada side, there are some differences in the products and availability between you guys and the U.S.

We use Epicure.... Everything they carry is gluten free since May of 2013. They have everything from taco seasonings to salad dressings, spices, you name it. It's not in stores, it's kind of like Avon or Scentcy. But once you find a rep in your area they are an awesome brand :) Here's a link to their site. Not sure if they get you in touch with a rep or not...

If you are cleaning out your current spice rack, the only thing I know to be wary of are "anti-flaking agents". That could mean flour, and they don't say what kind. 

So something like basil or parsley that is just dried leaves would be safe while something like garlic powder may not be, and why combination seasonings may be more likely to contain some added ingredient that isn't actually a spice.

http://www.penzeys.com/ .  I emailed them and they are totally gluten-free.

 

"Thanks so much for your interest in our spices. You may be happy to know that spices are naturally gluten-free, and we do not use any wheat, rye, oats, or barley in any of our products. Ingredients are clearly listed on our seasonings as well. We are in the process of testing all of our spices for gluten, but until everything is tested we cannot claim to be gluten free.

 

I hope this information is helpful. Have a great day,""

I'm not sure if everything they make is gluten free, but many Badia brand spices are certified gluten free by the GFCO. I am in the U.S. and get them at Big Y supermarket, but I imagine they must be available at other places or online too.

My experience with "anti-flaking agents" is that wheat is not used because of the way it would alter flavor. Usually it's cellulose.

    • Hate to tell you but McDonalds French fries are NOT gluten free.  The "natural beef flavoring" contains wheat.  Their hasbrowns are also fried in the same fryers thus making them NOT gluten free.  Lots of Miss information by this poster.  
    • .....you do know the Mc Ds uses wheat in the fries? FRENCH FRIES Ingredients: Potatoes, Vegetable Oil (Canola Oil, Corn Oil, Soybean Oil, Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Natural Beef Flavor [Wheat and Milk Derivatives]*), Dextrose, Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate (Maintain Color), Salt. *Natural beef flavor contains hydrolyzed wheat and hydrolyzed milk as starting ingredients. Contains: WHEAT, MILK. https://www.mcdonalds.com/us/en-us/product/small-french-fries.html

        Being a Hydrolyzed version it might not contain the gluten proteins.....but you said any wheat proteins.
      Side thoughts I would not trust that place, stuff is constantly cross handled and changing gloves between stations does not happen often.
      AVOID fast food restaurants, keep protein pars, prepackaged snacks, etc available in your car and pack meal prep kits.
    • Grew up in a Hispanic half family, and ironically have a bad allergy to corn now....anyway when they get a bit dried out you take 2 large sheet stretch of a paper towel soak, wring it bit then wrap 2-6 tortillas in it put on a plate an zap in the microwave for a bit, this steam cooks them, and if they are dried out a bit from the fridge and falling apart this can make them more pliable. If really dried out wet the tortillas directly.......we never wasted food. PS do not ask for times...I have not eaten them in 5+ years and I break out in a rash from touching corn.
    • Place in a ungreesed non stick pan on med heat and turn after 20 seconds. This is how I cook corn tortillas orig and then reheat as well.
    • It's way too late to help this original poster, but in reading this thread, there's so many things that worry me.... WENDY'S IS THE WORST PLACE TO TRY TO EAT GLUTEN-FREE!!!! They are NOT at all dedicated in ANY way and they are a nightmare to even ask for gluten-free.  I travel A LOT and I can't afford to spend a fortune or tons of time finding gluten-free restaurants that won't make me sick. I eat the Grilled Chicken Sandwich NO SEASONINGS (custom made to order very juicy and delicious - takes 7 minutes to cook and worth the wait) at McDonalds at least twice a week.  I am extremely gluten allergic - extremely sensitive to wheat protein and poisons in our food supply - and allergic to a bunch of other things too (including milk protein - whey, sodium casseinate, and lutein - flax seed, opiates = poppy seeds, and any kinds of grass such as wheat grass, etc).  I order "grilled chicken filet 'a la carte' with no seasonings" and medium french fries. In the mornings, when I can't cook at home, I order 2 round eggs and 1 hash brown.  I NEVER GET SICK AT MCDONALD'S when I order these orders. I search on Celiac.com any time I try to eat out and I rarely end up ordering places because too many people post about getting sick off this or that because so many of us don't know what is making them sick!!!!! People order then think it's got gluten in it when it could be cross- contamination or yeast or milk protein that is making people sick because they aren't aware that with a gluten-allergy undiagnosed for a long time comes a whole long list of these other things we need to watch out for!!!! Sign up for the gluten-free restaurant notification app and use Celiac.com, but ALSO DO YOUR RESEARCH AND GET THE ALLERGY TEST PANEL! If you can afford to pay $500 out of your pocket, get the DNA allergy test.
