"Let’s face it, the gluten-free diet is complex and difficult to maneuver. Add to this the issue of common ingredients that never seem to get off lengthy lists of “things to question” and it’s no wonder that so many people doing their best to avoid gluten are still assailed by confusion and anxiety. That’s why we think it sometimes makes more sense to explain why you don’t have to worry about certain ingredients. Here are the leading ingredients that you can stop worrying about.,,,," https://www.glutenfreeliving.com/gluten-free-foods/ingredients/top-10-ingredients-you-really-dont-need-to-worry-about/
I bought Spicely Organics Chili powder from Whole Foods in Bellevue, WA. I got very sick after eating it, so I tested it with three separate gluten tests. They all came up positive for >10ppm, which is what their "certification" says they test below. I just wanted to warn everyone away from them. They clearly have quality control problems and are not safe for celiacs.
I emailed Penzeys Spices about gluten and possible cross-contamination (cc). Here's what I sent and their response: Email request sent 12/19/16 from me: Hello Penzeys, Are your herbs, spices, spice blends, and extracts processed in a plant that also processes gluten (wheat, rye, or barley)? Are there any additives that aren't listed on your ingredients label? I've recently been diagnosed with celiac disease and cannot ingest any gluten, even from cross-contamination. Any amount of gluten will make me seriously sick. I love Penzeys and am trying to find a safe source. Thank you, Sara Email response sent 12/21/16 from Penzeys Spices Customer Service: Hi Sara, All of our products, including spices, herbs, salts and all ingredients used in our seasoning blends, are naturally gluten free, however we are not certified gluten free.We do not add gluten (or any items containing gluten) to any of our products, and will not package any items if they are found to contain gluten. Everything is all natural and does not contain any additives or preservatives. All ingredients are listed in the descriptions and on the label. Currently the only thing we have that contains gluten is our Aleppo Pepper. Penzeys Spices conducts routine spot testing for gluten on all of our products and follow FDA guidelines. Our machines are cleaned and tested in between jobs. Hope this helps! Take care, Sue
Has anyone tried the SIMPLY ORGANIC Spicy Taco Seasoning? The ingredients seem safe, but is not certified gluten-free. Thanks!
