Gluten Free Spices and Seasonings
We are hearing from more and more customers these days that they have found they require a gluten free diet. We’re happy to say that this is an easy request to accommodate as our spice blends and straight spices are gluten free. We do not use any forms of gluten in our production facility.
Be advised that there are two non-spice products in our product offerings that do contain gluten: our Veal Demi Glaze and our Wasabi Garnishing Sauce. Both of these products come to our warehouse prepackaged and go out the same way.
We also do not label our barbecue sauces as gluten-free because they use two ingredients that many people claim contains gluten: vinegar and soy sauce. According to our manufacturer, there are not enough gluten proteins in these ingredients to cause an effect for someone with Celiac's disease. The FDA allows products to be labeled as gluten-free in cases like this, however in the spirit of transparency, we have opted not to label these products as gluten-free.
Even with a small amount of spice, we understand that it is important for you to know what you are putting in your body. We have always made the ingredients that we use in our spice blends readily available, but we recently decided to take the next step and have all of our proprietary blends analyzed for nutritional information. We worked with another local Colorado company, On the Menu, to complete this process. For ease of use we chose a teaspoon or a tablespoon, the most commonly used measurements, as the serving sizes which you will find at the top of each panel. These nutritional fact panels are available for each blend on its individual webpage and you can click the panel to enlarge.
