It is especially important if you are gluten-intolerant or a Celiac to make sure that the seasonings and sauces you use in your recipes are gluten-free to avoid suffering the effects of gluten exposure.
Making your own homemade shawarma seasoning reduces the possibility of ingesting a store bought spice blend with added gluten. In a 2013 Survey Of Gluten In Spices, from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA). It was found that 24% of the spices tested (24 out of 268) had detectable levels of gluten.
Fortunately, USA and Canada require gluten-containing ingredients to be declared on the labels however, in facilities that are not totally gluten-free, cross-contamination may occur.
Whether you are gluten-free or not, making your own spice blends are best:
- You get to chose what goes in your blend. You get to use fresh herbs and spices so the flavor will be more potent.
- You can control the spice level, you can eliminate the chili or cayenne pepper or add more or less.
- You can control the amount of sodium.
- It is so lovely to give your spice blends as gifts.
