Hi! I was hoping I could get some input on some of McCormicks seasonings. My son is PA and my Mother, Bless her heart, is always trying to come up with new recipes for safe baked goods to make for him. So far she has a fabulous pound cake that's to die for and a wonderful old fashioned cake recipe. She asked me to post here and ask if any of you with PA allergies ever use the McCormicks Imitaion Almond or Butter nut flavorings?? (My son also has an Almond allergy. Not severe like the peanut, but we do avoid it.) She contacted the company probably 3 or 4 times and all have assured her that there are no peanuts or tree nuts in any of there flavorings. The imitation almond is actually from, I believe she said, an apricot pit. I always find it helpful to get input from here from people with experience. [img][/img] If anyone has ever safely baked with these two flavorings in particular please let me know. Thank you so much!

Have a Blessed Day!

I've contacted McCormick, too, and I've been so reassured to hear that they use no peanuts or nuts in their factory. I've read on other threads here that other people have gotten the same response. Yes, their nut flavorings are from apricot pit. I use their almond extract all the time. I've actually started buying only McCormick herbs, spices, extracts and food colorings because I feel safe feeding them to my DD. I used to buy cheaper brands.

I don't know about the extracts, but I was *so* impressed when I called McCormicks to ask about their spices. I definitely trust this company

McCormick do not confuse them with McCormicks.
One is safe spices. One is NOT safe cookies etc.
McCormick also makes Gourmet Spices.

Does this include the packets of spices, like spaghetti sauce seasonings and chili seasonings?

I use McCormick spices and mixes all the time and we have never had any problems.
I can't bring myself to buying the Almond Extract. Apricot pits look an awful lot like almonds so I can't help but think that they are related.
